Thursday, September 29, 2011

"Panem et circenses," literally "bread and games," was what the Roman emperors thought would keep ordinary people going.

Poor gladiators, if a virtually indestructible robot should fight them.

Characters: 80s Moviegoer who looks like Jerry; Boldface, Terry; Dr. Mysterious; Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000


Dr. Mysterious: So, I would like to find some scientists of the time and talk to them. If you're not into that, you may go to the Colosseum for the big show!
Terry Boldface: Well, I'd kind of like to see the show, but I choose the scientists.
Jerry and Monty: Hooray! Colosseum! Chariot races! Gladiator fights!
Spacebot: I think I'll come to the colosseum with you. Hope they don't ask me to fight.
Jerry: Why? That would be fun!


Blog and social media pages

Friday, February 5, 2016

Since our return in November 2015, we've massively expanded our presence in social media. Even though all of them have their links on every page, here's the complete list:







Our own blog

If you like our little comic, feel free to like or follow us in the social media networks you're members of, and use their sharing mechanisms to spread the word. Our eternal gratitude will be yours if you do.

Using these channels, you can also communicate with us, ask questions, or even try and make suggestions. We won't promise to listen to the latter, but are always glad to hear your opinions about our work. Even the critical ones, as long as they're more constructive and more eloquently worded than "you suck."

We deliberately left out Instagram since they're too hipster to allow access from a computer and require a mobile device. We create and publish this comic using a MacBook Pro, and I'm not too fond of switching devices just for one social network (I know there are unofficial workarounds, but never mind these).
