Happy 4th to school spirit!

Happy 4th year to School Spirit. He's one of my best friends in the comic book world and there are quite a lot of gems stuffed in his archive and he put up my guest comic. So check him out. You won't be disappointed.

Also there's a new POQ up. Sorry again about last weekend there being no new TBOWL episode up. It's a long story. Anyway I'll get up a new one this weekend.

Happy Hulk weekend and hope to see you all on Monday!

75 is up!

Hi all. 75 is up. I have lots to say but I don't know how much people read this so I'll get the short out of the way first. There's a new episode of webcomic beacon up. A new guest comic hits a good friend of mine on Tuesday as it is his 500th episode celebration... And the front page has a complete rehaul. (more on that later)

I'm still mulling over my printed comic. I've been thinking a lot about it and there hasn't really been any interest... It is going to cost me 30$ just to get a proof printed. I'd be lying if I said I had even 5$ to spend on anything besides food, gas and bills right now. This isn't a cry for donations or whatever, you won't find a donation button on my page. I'm just saying... The printed comic is done and ready to get sent, I just don't see any interest from anyone and I don't have the 30$ for a proof. So that is on pretty much permenant hold...

About the front page re-org. I get a lot of really really nasty remarks about my front page, so I decided to do something about it that nobody really can talk trash about anymore... I completely redid the front page in Flash... So I know it doesn't look like all of those cookie-cutter ComicPress pages you see nearly everywhere else, but whatever. It is staying in that format for a long time, so get used to it. The only changes that I'll be making is random re-skinning which will be optional and it'll pretty much choose by itself which skin of the front page to go to once I start setting up new skins...

So anyway that's pretty much all I got. I hope you enjoy the new episode and the new front page and the podcast and all of that. Portal of Questions will be starting up again this Friday. Enjoy your week!

74 is up!

74 is up! A new Webcomic Beacon is up. I have a guest comic dropping on a friend's site within two weeks. I'm going to try to get my comic sent for its 1st print this week. As soon as I get that back pre-orders will start.

I can't thank all of you enough who stayed with me through this break I took... I promise the next time I go to print you won't even see a delay, but I really wanted this to be the last time I tried to print Volume 1, and the only way I could do that is if I threw a ludicrous amount of effort at it. I wanted there to be no doubt in my mind that it was the best possible work I could do without a complete restart of the series, and I spent way too much time on episodes 13+ to justify a restart.

So anyway. Thanks again. Read my forums, I post lots of fun stuff on there, no spambots.

I think that's all I got... Mario Kart Wii and the new steering wheel are a blast. I highly recommend it.

Have a great week! 50 billionth website reorg coming soon probably!!!!


Sunday, April 20, 2008


As you can see, the site has been re-designed for the 50 billionth time. Above you see the coverpage for vol. 2. I hope you like it. I'm going to be ramping up the time invested in the drawing of volume 2 so I hope everyone sticks around.

Thanks again for being patient, thanks everyone for their guest art. Anything I get from this point on I am going to be locking away for a rainy day, so thanks again for everyone that has helped with that. I couldn't have done any of this without you, (and still kept any visitors..)

So, the state of Volume 1 printed version. It is done except for about another hour of cleanup then it will get sent off to the printers to make sure it is actually going to look as awesome as it is supposed to.

As soon as that happens, I'll put a link up on the site for everyone to start their pre-orders, then once I reach a certain amount I'll do the orders and ship them out.

There is going to be three versions of the comic. Normal, signed and signed with sketch. I'm not 100% sure on the prices yet, so I'm going to save that until after I get my proof back, which'll probably get sent out within the next few days, then 2 agonizing weeks, then I get my proof back, then I'll put the link up to start the pre-orders!!!

Oh yea, those skyscrapers you see are put there by me now. I axed the project wonderful skyscrapers. People steal the ad space by canceling just before they owe .01c and were kicking everyone else off that were legit and so I handpick each one now and put it up myself. So if you want yours up, drop me an email. They go up for a week and I ask nothing in return.

Also, I know I haven't done one for a while. A buddy of mine needed a guest comic, so I did it! I'll post here as soon as it drops! Should be in about a week! Horray! Ya'll like it a lot!

Thanks again for all of your patience, I can't wait to start volume 2. Thanks again tons and tons and don't forget to listen to the podcast I co-host, The Webcomic Beacon (link on the left.)

Sunday, April 13, 2008


Sorry, no new episodes or guest comics yet. The image on the front page pretty much says it all. Don't worry though, nobody's going anywhere, just super busy trying to get caught up.

Also I'm the new co-host for the webcomic beacon. Link there on the left. Go check it out. It is me and Fes and Tanya and we have a blast talking about all kinds of webcomic-related stuff.

Volume 1 knows who is going to print it now, just finishing the front page and a special inside page that is top secret that nobody knows about and also waiting for an ad for the back cover from someone special.

Check out the Bonus page and check out the forum... There's tons of content on the site, just gotta browse around. I'm really really sorry there isn't some kind of new episode guest or otherwise. Hopefully very soon. I expect to be caught up with a new episode of my own in hand within two weeks.

Thanks always for your loyalty and dedication.

Guest Comic #4 is up!

This great comic is from Spearr from TNT Comics!!! I really really like it and loves its nod to Diablo and also its funny (but sad) to see Future Paladin get scammed but I'm not surprised that it happened! He gets distracted easily and is all about improving his light radius!

Thanks again Spearr! I only have two more guest comics to go and then it is time to officially start Volume 2!!!

Volume 1 is ready to print except for the cover page and is going to be 52 pages long. It features eps 13-67, some touched up panels, some completely redone frames, reorganized pages and some completely new frames! These panels will not -ever- be posted on the website. The only way to see this new content is to buy the book. Pre-order link and price-guide to be posted as soon as I get a print in my hand. I'm only doing pre-orders this time up to a certain $, and then probably ordering a little buffer, and that will be it for a really long time...

So I hope that gets some people excited. I wouldn't even have bothered doing this if it wasn't going to be really special.

So thanks all that helped me get the time off to complete it. In the next two weeks I'm going to be putting the finishing touches on volume 1, getting my proof and starting volume 2 so here is to many, many more years of TBOWL. Thanks all for your support.

Hi All. Ep 18 of TWCB is up. (Link on the left.) I did the guest art for it, and we talk about guest art for the whole show. So check it out! The Web Comic Beacon is a 1hr podcast where all of the topics revolve around guest art. We have a lot of fun. So hope you listen in.

Have a great weekend!

Guest comic up on Debasement

My last guest comic that I've done has dropped. It is on Debasement. The comic itself is safe for kids/work but the rest of his site has a lot of skin, so don't go there at work or if skin offends ya. The link should be safe for a week or so, or you can check it out in the forum too.

I just got done recording a new Webcomic Beacon episode titled Guest Art with Fes and Tanya. That is going to drop Friday, I think ya'll are realy going to get a kick out of this one. I even did the fan-art for the episode. You'll hear it here first when that ep drops.

Anyhew that's about it. Hope everyone had a safe April 1st.

Guest comic 3 is up!

Here is guest comic #3. It is from Wayward Robot!!!!!!!! If you haven't read his comic before, you need to stop reading this now, and go check his comic out!

Seriously, go. :P


Okay welcome back! I'm about half way done with getting Volume 1 in printed form but still not making any promises on when it'll be done. :(

Thanks a ton to Andreas and Bum, and now to Briggs. I should have 2-3 more coming and I'm very excited about, so stay tuned for those, and also keep checking out my bonus section, I'm adding everything to that. :D (New stuff from Mirz and Matt in there if you haven't been in there in the last few weeks.)

I can't think of anything else for now, so thank you for your patience while I work on my printed vol. 1 and talk to ya'll later!!!!

Guest comic 2 is up!

Hi all! This great guest comic comes from a good friend of mine, Dumb Bum from Minos the Minotaur!!!

He has been following my comic for quite a while and one thing that both of our comics have in common is that we both use the same comic creator! Horray! I really like his comic too and I am proud to have a link to his site up on my Link's page.

I really like the color of this comic and the paladin and trees look great! This comic has also inspired me to have an actual castle out in the ocean in my story at some point! Maybe a castle with a certain minotaur in it!!!

Anyway his environment just looks great. I really like it. It is hard to explain but some people are just really great at making their drawing look like it was drawn after an actual place, and this is one of those drawings.

Thanks again Dumb Bum and look forward to more great guest comics from my friends!

My re-work of Volume 1 is coming along nicely but I'm still not ready to put a time-frame on it so anyone wanting to make a guest comic for me still has tons of time.

Thanks all for the support, guest comics, guest art and icons. It is all going up in the Bonus section as I am slowly letting it trickle out. So if you don't see your stuff in Bonus, you will very soon. :)

Thanks again all! If you have a guest comic idea or have any questions just drop me a line, I would love to help.

TBOWL Guest Comic 1 + Dark Red Guest Comic

This is a great guest comic from a very nice TBOWL fan, Andreas Gustafsson of
Invincible Jeff! Thank you very very much Andreas, it looks so awesome! You captured the mood and humor of my comic very well and the art is fantastic! Also, check his comic out. I've liked it for a long time and I think you will too.

Also the guest comic I did for Dark Red is up. Lynn from Dark Red is a good friend of mine and I am so privileged to be able to do a guest comic for her. She also has a really great comic, and if you have spare time, I ask that you go check hers out as well. It is a superb photo-comic that stands tall above the rest by leaps and bounds and I highly recommend it.

Thank you Andreas and Lynn!

In TBOWL news, the progress of my printed comic is moving forward, so thank you everyone for your patience. I'll be back online with Volume 2 as soon as I can.

POQ8 + Guest comic @ Dark Red

Hi all, POQ8 is up. Hope you like it. Also the guest comic I did for Dark Red is up. You REALLY need to check this one out. I'm also going to mirror it in my forum with the rest of the guest comics I have done. Also, if you click the Script button in her left hand navigation, she has also made a script up of it which I really really like.

Thank you Dark Red for having such an awesome comic that can generate this great of a privilege.

Easter 08

There's your Easter 08 wallpaper, it'll go up in the Bonus at the end of the week with all of its friends.

So some of you already know, but I'm taking some time off, hopefully some of my friends'll come through with guest comics when it is convenient for them to keep everyone entertained in the mean time.

This isn't some cry for help, I'm just taking time off to go back and redo Volume 1 of my comic in printed form. It'll be episodes 13-67 and there will be limited copies. When I'm done you'll see the option to pre-order up on the site, then Volume 2 will start. I'm not setting a date, because I don't like to set dates, but I've already started, I just couldn't do both at the same time.

So expect another archive reorg soon (I do listen to you all), and later a printed Volume 1 and starting on Volume 2. Thanks all for sticking with me and the comic. Have a great week.

Episode 72: Wake Up

There you go, new episode! I know this's a tad premature, but thanks to another great month here at TBOWL and I just wanted to take a second to just thank everyone and say thanks and keep looking forward cuz lots of great things are coming to this comic. Next month I expect two guest comics to be dropping, so keep an eye out for that..!

I'm always looking for more commissions so please hit me up if you plan on taking some time off and there's something you want me to draw while you are away from your site. My services are quite affordable and all of my guest comics to date are all stored on my forum for safekeeping. :D So if you need a guest comic, go take a look and see if you like what I can do, then drop me a line and we'll work something out (I usually need about two weeks notice though.)

So, thats about it... Thanks again! Talk to you all on Friday! Have a great week!!!!!!!!

Talk to ya'll again on Friday!

Portal of Questions #2 is up

Lots more of the site has been updated this week. Check out the new Characters page and the new Archive page and ... if you haven't seen it... the new Links page. Also on the top right is the Portal archive. Also this frame is wider, yeay!

Yep! My archives are separate! Pretty sweet huh? As soon as POQ gets bigger, it'll get a real archive page too... Probably every 10 pages I'll just do a little bookmark... Np!

Metaplace's first dev chat/alpha stress test was tonight. It was amazing. I even have a screenshot of it. Here it is... I was the 10th person in the world from the public to experience Metaplace... Pretty cool huh? If it was easy to do that, imagine how awesome the TBOWL rpg is going to be!!!

Anyway, talk to ya'll Sunday night. Thanks for reading!

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Episode 68 is up!

Here it is, episode 68! I don't have a second archive up for my first Portal of Questions, but incase you missed it, here is its temporary holding place... I have some cool ideas for it, I just need to get a 2nd archive working...

Well it has been a really busy week. I completed not one, but two guest comics this week. They will be up within the next couple of weeks and you will hear about them here first!! They are both really really cool, and you'll love them!

I've redone a crap-load of the site. I cleaned up the forums, redid the links page, redid the archive page. (It's a real archive now?!?!) Yea, it doesn't just go to the navigation now, it goes to a REAL ARCHIVE.

Metaplace hitting live is looming ever closer, I'm going completely nuts waiting for it. The 31st there'll be a dev chat that is going to decide everything, and the client is supposed to get opened up very soon after that, (within a few days I hope).

What else. I did sooooooo much over the weekend. You'll just have to look around and see I guess.

Ok that is it I guess. Thanks all for reading! Ttyl!

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Portal of Questions #1 is up

Finally after a long time of planning and thinking and asking other webcomic experts. Here is tbowl's very very first single panel update. It is going to be happening every Friday, and should keep yall tided over while I work on my episodes over the weekend.

I know I have done single panels in the past, either for guest art, or because I've been having real life issues, but I've been doing really good for a long time, and I'm really caught up and just having a blast. Sooo.. Here you go! Single panel update, every friday!

All you have to do is email me any questions about the tbowl universe (in character) and I'll put them up on the site. Please use common sense and just keep it in character and stuff. My comic isn't a blog. :P

Anyway, I can't think of anything else. I'm still madly plotting a TBOWL RPG for when metaplace comes out. (Will be beta within a few weeks, per their site) So look very very very forward to that. My plans for it are just amazing.

Also I finished a guest comic for a very popular webcomic last night. Look forward to that within a month or so hopefully. You will be very impressed. :D (It takes me about a month to do each one... so... If you want one, please ask WAY in advance...)

Ok! That's about all I can think of. Good things are ahead. Thanks very very very much as always for reading.

Talk to ya'll later,

Sunday, January 20, 2008

Episode 67 is up!

Hi All. New episode is up.

I also wanted to let everyone know I was in episode 7 of The Webcomic Beacon last Friday. I hang out with FES and Tanya during 15 minutes in through 45 minutes in. We had a really good time. We talk about the webcomic awards, and all kinds of other fun comic-related things.

I hope all of you will visit back on Friday for a special announcement. (It's good, I promise...)

Thanks all for reading and please tell your friends.

I hope to see all of you on Friday...

Friday, January 18, 2008

Webcomic beacon ep. 7 is up!

The Webcomic Beacon Check it out, I even have an impromptu part where I talk for a bit in it. For some of you this'll be the first time hearing me talk! OOoooo scary!!

Thanks to Fes and Tanya for having me on board!!!

New things are coming to the site, so stay tuned.

Sunday, January 13, 2008

Episode 66 is up!

Thanks all for reading, hope you like it and don't forget to tell your friends!

Sunday, January 6, 2008

Episode 65 is up!

This's the first episode of 2008 and I tried to kick it off with a bang.

As soon as Metaplace hits beta I will be working on TBOWL Quest (working title) and a lot of the planning and ideas and how the engine'll work and stuff has already been figured out'n stuff so all I'll have to do is start! So look forward to that. I know I am.

Also, if any of you out there still use IE 5.5 or IE 6 for some reason, please update to IE7 or Firefox. I'm no longer going to spend anymore of my time/energy trying to fix the PNG's on my site. It is taking up valuable time/energy that I don't have. So please, just upgrade.

Forum stuff... The forums have been totally dead... I post in there a lot and there's all kinds of fun stuff that you'd otherwise never know because it'd all be too long to post here. (This's supposed to be short!) So please check that out. Registering is easy and it is completely spam-free!

That's about all I have for now. Have a happy fun and safe New Year and hopefully your resolutions are remotely obtainable!

TBOWL Guest comic up at WWWC!!!

Well, its new years (happy belated new years by the way) and in celebration Evil Couch put up a TBOWL guest comic up on his site. Check it out!! (Beware the swearing. :P )
