That's because there's no archive yet, so I haven't bothered checking it. It's probably something I can fix real quick when I get around to it.

Just a reminder that I started putting up comics today.

Chimera is confused. Please clarify.

e--so is this a webcomic that you used to do that you are starting back up? If so, cool. I'll look forward to reading it. (Archives could be helpful.)

If not, you've just giving me more reasons to make fun of grown men playing with little men. Little plastic men, even.  ;)

The archives are lost, or else I'd have them on there.

Ha!  I laughed out loud at the the very first actual comic, prompting the secretary two cubes over to ask me what was wrong.  You're bookmarked buddy.

You sound just like the guy who does Partially Clips sounded when I met him.   ;D

Might I note that DC has the comic rights to Godzilla so him suggesting they play that game is even better.

You might want to consider better lighting so you don't have to use a flash, you can see the glare on Glactus and Godzilla in that first frame.  Also if you did that you could use a green screen and just replace the background.

I would love to not use a flash. I have much more control when I don't
the problem is that I don't have a room at home that gets very much light at all. I have these halogen lamps, but due to their height, they're very difficult to shine in specific places.

When I go to the first comic, either by [first] or going back 2 pages, it's busted. Can't click any buttons.

And better lighting is a must. Try just buying really freakishly huge energy output for some desklamps. Sure, you'll get cancer, but it's for a good cause.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

i'll have to look into that.

Ah, this is a problem with the way I've laid it out. I'll have to ponder a more dynamic solution so I can do the occasional double-sized comic.
