So here we are at another comic. Enjoy!


This one I actually went back and revised several times. The blood splatter on Frohman's
clothes keep changing because It would look good from one angle, but not
another, so I had to re-spray the blood texture on him several times. Because
of that it doesn't always...

Frohman and grenades do not mix well. Actually, I'm not sure if anything mixes well with Frohman.

And the comic rises from the dead like the unholy abomination that it is!



This should have been out a long time ago, but there was a series of events that severely delayed for the entire summer. My first "excuse" was that my computer died. I was upgrading something, and it took about a month for me to figure out the problem and finally get it fixed.

My next excuse was that there was a mass employee exodus from where I work leaving us understaffed. Being o...

And just when you thought it was over it comes back like a bad rash that you thought you took care of with all those medications you spent hundreds of dollars on. I don't really know why I didn't update in so long. I'm just really lazy.


In case you don't get it, Frohman mistakes the ashes (created by the Combine burning the dead citizens) falling from the sky as sn...

So because of the lack of updates recently, I decided to try to make it upto your guys by posting another comic on the same week. Such an act has beenunheard of and will spawn many legends about how this site once was updated sofrequently in one week that the universe almost imploded, requiring ChuckNorris to save the very fabric of space-time from tearing apart.


In the develop...

I wasn't very pleased with the way this one came out. There isn't areal punch line, but I needed to release something seeing as how it's been afew weeks since the last comic.


I was kind of cheap in that Frohman's pose stays the same in all fourof the first panels and I just took the pictures at different angles. I kind ofgot lucky with the striders in the background of panel 4 because ...

I know I said that I would try to get the comics out regularly a while back, and I'm still trying to do that. The only problem is that my computer doesn't always want to cooperate.



For instance, my hard drive completely died when I was supposed to get the new comic up. Fortunately it was my internal hard drive and not my external drive (where all the comics and imp...

I probably could have not added any sound effects to this one and it would still be understandable... well except for the running out of ammo part. I wish you could have used that Gnome as a melee weapon in Episode 2 like you could in Left 4 Dead 2. Strangely enough, the abbreviation for Left 4 Dead 2 sounds like it would be the name of an astromech droid from Star Wars: L4-D2.

Sorry about the lack of updates. I don't really have any excuse this time. Hopefully I'll get back to updating weekly like I'm supposed to.

I apologize for the lack of comics recently, but the webhost has been having some problems related to the sidebars. I had to disable them in order to edit the site properly.

I've also added a second forum which should be linked at the top. Because the host doesn't allow me to transfer over all of the old topics to the new forums, I've decided to leave the old one up for a while before I del...

At long last issue 51 is here.



This one has a lot of dialogue in it. I probably should have made it 8 panels long instead of 6 because it's pretty crowded. Anyway, Frohman again finds a way to get more Combine inadvertently killed. I was planning on getting some Left 4 Dead props like the sandbags with the minigun for this scene, but I forgot to download some so I ...

Hello, and sorry about the lack of updates (again). Sorry there's no new comic this week, but instead there’s something that a lot of you have been asking for.



I've been getting a lot of requests to somehow fix the comics archive pages because everything is so slow, it's hard to navigate, and it doesn't work very well. Here are some excuses:



It's slow - This is because this site is using a free account, and thus...

Finally, my 50th comic. Here's to 50 more and beyond without Chris suing me!



I'm not sure how popular "Concerned" was at its 50th comic because I didn't find out about it until after it was finished, but I'm sure it fared better than my rip-off. I blame it on the first several comics. I need to redo those.



When I made these comics, t...

Sorry for the delay on this one. More computer trouble. One of my graphics cards died and it took me a while to figure out it wasn't a driver issue. Anyway, here's the comic.



We're nearing the end of Frohman's time underground, and I was planning on having him be reunited with the Combine that had abandoned him, but I wasn't sure how. I en...

Finally another G-man appearance. About time. I was planning on adding more antlions into the final panel and then a zombine (combie?) with a grenade, but it was just too much work to pose the Antlions so that when I enabled the NPC AI they wouldn't attack each other. So I just left out the zombine and spawned antlions. The scene got too crowded if I added a third, but with only two it looks kind...
