Geez! It was so weird to not be in last week's issue! Like, even if I didn't like sharing myself with the universe, it's become a habit, and entrusting an entire week of my comic to Colonel Bombshell and Anna Log was excruciatingly disorienting. On the bright side, it meant the plan for this week's comic was around for over a week and still done at the very last minute on Tuesday! (Brian also has a shit-ton of homework that he should probably be doing instead of this…)
All the same, a whole year of existing as a character beyond Brian's imagination and sketchbooks is pretty fun. I do want to point out that the 1-year anniversary of my comic isn't technically until tomorrow, but my comics come out on Wednesdays, and days of the week shift compared to month dates year-over-year. It's a pattern that just happens. Brian's a dork and could probably tell you about other calendrical patterns as well. (Wouldn't it be great if you could make millions of dollars every year from knowing useless trivia about calendars, printing processes, and science fiction shows from the 1990s? [Don't say Jeopardy, because that's just for pretentious assholes who think 1970s geopolitics and the Bible are the utter pinnacles of human achievement.])
AAAAANYWAYYYYY, this week's issue was elaborate and complicated, and hard for Brian to do. He also has to do woefully uninteresting homework before he goes to sleep, and he doesn't trust me to write Scribb1es unsupervised (something about making controversial statements), so I've gotta stop for now. If you've been reading my comic (and my Scribb1es) since the very beginning, thank you. If not, fuck you, but thank you for hopping on later. You can't claim to be the earliest of readers, but you're still early enough to be a hipster whenever I hit it big and people start claiming to have read Libby Sk8er Girl before it went "mainstream." Then you'll get to be BFFs with Anna or something.
Oh, and if you're wondering who's in the picture, I'm the one in the foreground, talking to you, the at least semi-literate audience. But the people under the banner (from right to left) are Polar Bear (from Polarnoids), Brandy de Hex (the [w]itch from the comic of the same name), Colonel Bombshell (one of my friends), Anna Log (another one of my friends), Chase the Sn0 Bro (some dude I know), and Penguin (from Polarnoids). The person lounging in front like a skank is Sherry, Brandy's sister in Brandy de Hex: Certified Sorceress. Her hair doesn't make any sense.
That's all for this week. Maybe one day Brian won't be drowning as much in homework, and he'll be able to do more good stuff, like this, his other comics, or even maybe YouTube videos again!!! Until then, it's up to you to not be dicks! Don't be dicks!
