Subject:I think I'm done...
Time:10:10 pm.
The thought occurred to me the other day that the only reason I come to LiveJournal these days is to check in on the City of Heroes community. So once CoH shuts down (which is happening within the next 24 hours), I'm pretty much going to stop coming here at all.

I'll leave this journal here so that people will be able to come and bask in the glory of Generic Web-Comic #134 in its prime, but will disable comments so I don't have to keep coming back here to delete the slow but steady stream of spam that shows up.

Anyone looking to keep up with the increasingly occasional updates to Generic Web-Comic #134 should jump on Twitter and follow @gwc134.

I also have a non-generic-web-comic-related twitter account, of course: @palndrumm.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 88!

What better way to celebrate the 9-month anniversary of the last Generic Web-Comic #134 strip than by actually finally getting around to posting up the next one?

Subject:Warning! Any Attempt To "Get" These Puns May Be Fatal!
Time:11:09 am.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 87!

Since it's been a while, this strip might make more sense if you read it in context with strips 85 and 86.

The pie in panel 4 is actually stolen off the old "Shut Your [Pie] Hole" Penny Arcade t-shirt. I still think it's one of the coolest t-shirts they've made, and was kinda annoyed that by the time they'd gotten around to organising international shipping for their shirts, they'd dropped that shirt from their line so I couldn't get one.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 86!

Continuing on with the theme from last time. And yes, the pun really is even worse this time. Don't say you weren't warned...

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 84!

In this week's episode, Generic Web-Comic #134 takes things to a whole new level of sophistimication, showing us once again that a surprising spectrum of cultural diversity and stimulating depths of intellectual substance can be found in the oddest places at times...

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 83!

Today we look at a familiar scene from an unfamiliar perspective, in the hope of revealing new insights into things we thought we already knew everything about. If this strip inspires any such insights for you, then please let us know about it...

Subject:Generic Hand-Gesture Comic #134
Time:8:36 am.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 82!

No matter what the words coming out of your mouth, your real intent and meaning is always given away by the subtle movements and gestures you don't even realise you're making. So for this strip, we brought in some of the most eminent body-language experts in all the world, to tell us what the guys in the strip have *really* been saying to each other all along...

Subject:Guest Strips!
Time:9:22 pm.
No new strip from me this week, but we still have something special for you...

Generic Web-Comic #134 - More Guest Strips!

Yes, you read that right - guest strips. Plural. We've got two more of them, and they're up on our guest strip page for you all to enjoy! First up we have a guest strip proper, done in such an eerily canonical manner that I kinda wish I'd thought of it myself first... Then we have what's technically more of a tributey/fan-arty type of thing rather than a guest strip in the strictest sense, but it's too cool not to be put up somewhere, so enjoy as GWC meets SVU via Screenshot Comix!

Thanks heaps to Ratti for both today's strips!

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 81!

Sure, it's a bit of a let-down after the Huberty goodness of last week, but let's face it, there's very little that wouldn't be a let-down after that. One day I may even get around to answering the first question asked in this strip... but probably not until I've milked a couple more strips like this one out of it. Never let it be said that GWC#134 is afraid to try and squeeze every last drop from a joke that wasn't that juicy to start with...

Subject:You've just... Asked Hubert!
Time:11:11 pm.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 80!

As promised last week, we present to you this very special Ask Hubert edition of GWC#134, in which Hubert himself answers a question sent in by one lucky reader. A question which has been begging to be answered ever since... um... oh, I dunno, maybe around strip 3-ish...?

And I'm sure that after reading the strip you'll agree - it's been totally worth it...

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 79!

No, seriously, we did... just thought we'd take a moment to marvel at that fact before we get down to the serious business of answering it next time round. And it's a doozy of a question - one that seems to be on the tips of lips of GWC#134 readers the world over, so make sure you don't miss it!

(Oh, and for anyone wondering why the comic's a day late... well, it isn't. It was actually put up last night - if you'd been subscribed to the RSS feed you woulda known that...)

Time:10:41 pm.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 78!

It's a kinda obvious follow-up to last week's strip. Ask for people to submit emails, and put an address on your website for them to email them to, and you're pretty much guaranteed that you'll have more responses than you've got time to deal with. But that's OK, because none of them will be worth taking the time to deal with anyway. Unless, as discussed here, you're in need of some "v1@gra" or some magical weight-loss drug. Or the ever entertaining Nigerian gentleman who wants to give you vast sums of money. The latest trend seems to be offering people jobs via spam - they've moved on from the fake Rolex (or genuine r01ex!) market which we had a massive flood of a few months back. And 'smallcaps'. Oh dear god, those bloody smallcaps. Lots and lots of spam about smallcaps. I don't even know what a smallcap is! But thanks to spam, I just don't care in the slightest! All I know for sure is that I'm completely sick of them and never want to buy a single smallcap in my entire life.

And I'm still serious, by the way. You can still email Hubert a question and he still might answer it in a future strip...

(Oh, and just because I finally decided to look it up, Wikipedia tells us that a smallcap is an economics term used to describe a firm whos market cap is below US$1 billion. Or alternatively, TheFreeDictionary defines 'small-cap' (adj.) as "Of or relating to relatively small companies that have little equity and a small number of shares of common stock outstanding." So there you go.)

Subject:Ask Hubert!
Time:11:18 pm.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 77!

I can't believe it's taken me 77 strips for this idea to occur to me. It's a trick every other crappy web-comic pulls out when they're desperately short of ideas, so why the hell wouldn't it work for me? It's so obvious! And if I make the focus of the exercise the one character that I've had more positive feedback about than all the others put together despite him only turning up in 4 of the previous 76 strips, then it can't possibly go wrong!

(And yes, I'm completely serious. You can email Hubert a question and he might just answer it in a future strip...)

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 76!

Another strip along a similar sort of theme to strip 43, except without the gratuitous violence and bloodshed. Which of course means it's just not quite as good, so if you wanna just go back and read #43 again and skip #76, I won't mind...

Subject:Extreme Close-Up!
Time:8:54 pm.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 75!

So, right after I do a strip describing how I make GWC#134, there's a 4-week gap because I hadn't actually made any more strips after that one... as someone famous once said, the ironing is delicious. But it's all OK - I've got a new strip up now, and a load of half-formed ideas in my head for future strips that I may or may not remember when I get around to sitting down and writing another one. In other words, it's business as usual around here... (Hey, you didn't think I was doing anything but making all this up off the top of my head as I went along, did you?)

Subject:Erase the excess!
Time:10:28 am.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 74!

As promised, or threatened, or foreshadowed, or at least alluded to, last time out, please enjoy this special "How To Colour-In Generic Web-Comic #134" strip.

I do actually colour every strip from the start - my blank template just contains the linework. Doing so gives me the chance to make little changes and touch-ups to the art as I go along -- moving a watch here, adding a bloody cleaver there, and so on -- and gives me some time to think about the strip I'm working on and re-write or re-word it if I feel the need. There's no doubt all sorts of fancy capabilities that Photoshop has that I could use to make the job easier, but as it is it generally doesn't take me too long anyway, so I've never really bothered to find out what they might be.

Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 73!

Interesting But Untrue Fact: The reason this strip was a week late was because I was actually trying to create the strip mentioned in the first panel.

Interesting And Potentially True Fact: If next week's strip is a week late, it's probably because I'm actually trying to create the strip mentioned in the last panel.
