Issue_037
I have been the victim of a robbery. Killzone 2 has stolen all my free time and refuses to let go of it all the while stealing more and more. I didn't get around to planning out this comic until the middle of the week, and I had to finish the posing and everything today because I got carried away in Warzone. Anyway, the comic is here so the both of you can stop mashing the F5 button. The only real challenge for this comic was the flares. I got the posing down, and started to take the pictures, but then I realized that I had put lights everywhere when it's supposed to be completely dark. So I had to delete all the pictures and come up with a solution for the darkness. Frohman's "flashlight" couldn't give off enough light to make it interesting so I sat staring at my computer screen for half an hour trying to think of something. Then I noticed the flare sitting on the ground next to the dead citizen, and thought of using those. Unfortunately, there isn't a flare tool that you can set for how long it will last, so I had to spawn a flare, no clip it to Frohman, then quickly pick it up, place it in his hand (fortunately the glare of the flare makes it so you can't see that he isn't even really holding it) and then run away and take the picture before the flare runs out. By the time I was finished, there was a massive pile of used flares in a corner off screen. The lighting effects from them look pretty cool though.

Panel 5 is one of the most avatar-worthy pictures I've ever seen.

A tip for flares:
1. make a static camera where you want to take the screenshot from
2. weld the flare to his hand, without setting it off. Make sure it isnt frozen.
3. use the gravity gun to pick it up and drop it (to activate it) and noclip out of the screen.
4. take the screenshot from the static cam. Even if that means using printscreen and havin to clone the HUD off the screenshot.
hope that helps :P

This comic is pretty hit and miss. Sometimes it's just boring and sometimes it gets a good laugh out of me. Stick with it and you should get more consistent.

Ah, don't feel bad. No sequel ever beats the original. Except Half life 2, but only because there was that massive gap in between. Anyway, you're still doing great.

I know it's a tad on the late side but...
Gotta love panel 5.

Don't worry, I get what you're trying to say. Although I don't think me dying will make the comics any funnier... then again, there's only one way to find out.

I probably could have phrased that better.

AWESOME! Refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh.... Anyway, seriously, you are WAY too hard on yourself. Look at other artists. Vincent van Gogh's paintings were only worth money after he died. He lived in poverty! Not that i'm saying you do, but I'm sure you get my point.

Most of my views are people who clicked on links from other sites expecting greatness, but left after 5 seconds (the shortest amount of time the server can record visitors for). And F5 is the keyboard shortcut in windows for refreshing a webpage.

Hey, triple digits. That's more views than my failed attempts at comics ever got. The only people that saw them were my friends, who felt obliged to see them. And now they're gone.

Also, what does mashing F5 do?

The site got 176 visitors today (last time I checked). I still haven't beaten the 200 mark legitimately yet.
