Back in action

Aaaaand we're back on the, internet. I finally have an internet connection at the new apartment and my computer all set up, so you finally get a new comic! Aren't you lucky?

Anyway, we're nearing the end of 2006. It's been a hell of a year for me: getting a girlfriend (and now fiancee), hitting 500 comics, advancing and progressing so much in my teaching career...things are going well for me.

I hope everyone else had a fantastic 2006. Sure, there are lots of things wrong with the world (Bush, I'm lookin' at you), we lost some big names this year (Gerald R. Ford and James Brown just this week, eesh), but we gotta press on and see that 2007 improves upon this year. Otherwise, what's the point, right?

Been Movin'

Sorry about the lack of comics. We got all moved in, now I'm just having to unpack stuff and put modular furniture together. I should have the desk together tonight and the computer set up, but I don't know that this'll mean a comic for you tomorrow. Definitely one by Friday, though. Thanks for bearing with me, folks.

What Would MacGuyver Do?

I'm pretty sure the source of MacGuyver's power (and his innate ability to do anything with just a paperclip, a rubber band, and a chewing gum wrapper) was his mullet. I mean, that man had some hair. I'd fear his offspring, wouldn't you?

Movin' Blues

Monday's comic is filler due to the fact that I spent all day Sunday dealing with car trouble and getting furniture (dude, we got some good deals on furniture today, lemme tell ya). I'll try to have a real comic on Wednesday. Barring that, I'll have another real-life adventure comic for you.

A Busy December

God, is it December already? Sure doesn't feel like it outside. I know folks back in Oklahoma/Texas/Kansas are getting several inches of snow (which is, y'know, kinda unusual for those places. Especially Texas. They're not supposed to even know that stuff can fall from the sky), but it was in the 70s today here in Northern Virginia. Dunno what the hell is up with that.

Admittedly, the temperature is supposed to drop off this weekend and feel more like late autumn. We'll see how that goes.

December is going to be a ridiculously busy month for me. Michelle (the world's best fiancee) and I have planned a tentative trip up to New York to visit her family next weekend. The weekend after that is Moving Day, when we move into our new apartment (with the aid of several friends and coworkers). A week and a half after that, it's Christmas (and another probable trip up to that which was once New Amsterdam) and New Year's. Wild.

So yeah, comics may be spotty in the coming weeks (especially depending on when they get the internet connected at the new apartment. Hopefully it'll be up and running when we move in; we'll see what happens). I'll try my best to get comics done ahead of time so I've got some cushion, but who knows if that'll happen or not. Wish me luck (or guest strips. Those'd be good, too).

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

It's Been There

What? The comic's totally been up all day. You just didn't see it. Yeah. The reason you didn't see it is not--I repeat, NOT--because I was playing Final Fantasy XII last night and didn't get the comic drawn before going to bed. Has nothing to do with that.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have more Final Fantasy XII to be playing...I mean, um...

*runs away*

Gobble-Gobble Hey

Happy Thanksgiving, folks. Go enjoy turkey day.

Granted, if you don't live in the United States and/or don't celebrate this holiday, kindly ignore this message and go about your business.

Anyway, I'm off to have Thanksgiving Dinner with my fiancee's family. Should be a hell of an experience.

Wednesday, November 22, 2006


Comic's up now. Forgot to put it together earlier this week, and I was busy with crap last night and crashed before I could get it made. Next comic is already in the works for Friday.

Monday, November 20, 2006

Comics Ahoy!

Not one, but two comics for your enjoyment (since I didn't get one up on Friday).

Wednesday's comic is already scanned, I just have to clean it up and add text and upload it.

Friday will see a comic as well, if for no other reason than the fact that it's Thanksgiving weekend and I have part of Wednesday and all of Thursday and Friday off from school (huzzah!).

Anyway, enjoy. I think I'm finally figuring out where I want this storyline to really go.

Friday, November 17, 2006


Friday's comic is in the works. I'll have it by the end of the day, honest.

Wednesday, November 15, 2006


So Monday's comic featured an unfortunate typo on my part. Today's comic features not a typo, but a purposely misspelt bastardization of "protege." Greta would pronounce it with a hard "g" and a long "e" at the end.

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

Advance Notice

If there's no comic tomorrow, it's because I died of sleep deprivation and education classes. Avenge me against whichever you prefer.

Saturday, November 04, 2006


So I didn't get a comic made for Friday, in part because of (1) my fiancee buying me Final Fantasy XII Thursday night and (2) having to calculate grades Friday night. Anyway, here's a bit o' filler until I can get something put together for Monday. It's ink on some heavy-weight paper and colored with crayon (yes, crayon. Sometimes the old methods are the best methods. Plus, the school's marker and colored pencil selections are kinda skimpy). I'm actually pretty happy with the way the image turned out. If anyone were interested, I might be willing to part with it.

Sunday, October 29, 2006

Writer's Block? Who, ME?

So yeah, there should've been a comic on Friday, but I came up short on what to do the comic about. I'd kinda worked my way into a corner with the storyline, getting some stuff set up and ready for major revelations and all that jazz, but then I drew a blank on where to take it next. When I finally came up with an idea Saturday, I couldn't draw for crap. Plus, the idea wasn't all that good.

However! things improved today. While I was showering this morning, I came up with something that should work great for the next several comics. It's always a good idea to have a direction for the storyline, I think, 'cause then I know where it ought to go.

Anyway, I'm working on a comic for Monday right now. Hopefully I won't fall behind again.

Wednesday, October 25, 2006


Yeah, didn't get the comic made last night, obviously. But it's done and should be up now, I think.

As a peace offering, please accept this alternate version of today's comic with a very different new foster family for the beleaguered Cletus.

In order for the comic to make any sense in either form, you have to realize two things:

1) The Hatfields and the McCoys are two families in West Virginia that started a feud way back in the 1800s over someone stealing someone else's pig or something similar. They're not really sure anymore, though I did read something a couple of years back about how they've take the feud out of the shootin' at each other stage and have upgraded to the suein' each other stage, so that's progress for you.

2) Hank McCoy is also known as Beast in the X-Men. For shame if you did not know that. And if you don't know who Magneto is...well, what the hell are you doing reading a webcomic at all?

Thursday, October 19, 2006


Sorry, didn't get a comic done for Friday. Had school and then class afterwards, so I didn't get home until almost 9.30. Then I had to spend some quality time with the fiancee, so I didn't get this done. Anyway, I'll try to get one done after work tomorrow. I've already got the comic in mind, so hopefully it'll be quick.

Sunday, October 15, 2006


So folks, I was just wondering: I'm looking to make some extra cash, what with having a wedding to save up for and everything, and I was just curious if there were anyone out there interested in original art at a reasonable rate? If so, feel free to email me at crookedhalo42 [at] yahoo [dot] com. Make sure to put "Crooked Halo" or "Dim Bulb Comics" in your subject line so I don't accidentally delete it.

Urinal Socks

True story. I swear to high holy Heaven, this actually happened when I was in college. There I was at the urinals in our dorm, minding and doing my own business, when in waltzes one of the other guys on our floor. He sees a pair of socks sitting on top of the urinal next to the one I was using and exclaims, "Hey, free socks!" He proceeds to grab the socks and leave. I tremble to think of what he used those things for.

In case you don't read the other blog, I'm now engaged. I'm just as surprised as you are.

The James Dean of the Webcomic World

If I've been a little quiet lately, it's mostly because I've got a lot on my plate and I'm lucky to be getting the comics cranked out on time, let alone write something entertaining or meaningful down here. I'm teaching full-time, taking two night classes towards my lincensure/Master's of Education (because that's exactly what I need: another degree), spending time with my girlfriend, playing my guitar...there's hardly enough hours in the day, y'know? But I'm doing what I can to keep up with it all.

However, I did notice a big jump in visitors the other day, but there's nothing showing where they came from. Maybe a bunch of you just decided to show up again, all on the same day? I dunno. But we're back up in triple-digits again (the mid-100s), so that's groovy. If you just suddenly decided to return to the fold, welcome. If you're new here and someone twisted your arm/threatened you with phyiscal violence if you didn't read my comic, welcome as well.

I've seen the "secret project" Adam's been working on. Y'know, the stuff he's been cranking out with relative speed but hasn't been showing to people? Yeah, I'm getting to read what he's doing, and I find it pretty damn good. Boy hasn't lost a step despite not posting a regular comic for nigh-on a year now.

I've got a three-day weekend this weekend, what with Monday being the holiday for that jerk who doesn't deserve a holiday. Oh well; I'll take the day off, regardless of whether or not Columbus was deserving of his own day.

Sunday, October 01, 2006


So Wednesday will mark the 500th Crooked Halo on Keenspace/Comic Genesis. Hard to believe I've made that many of them. Seems like just yesterday that Adam and I signed up for the site and he got everything up and running. My art's improved quite a bit in the last five hundred or so strips. For instance, everyone's necks have gotten thicker (so they're not pencil-necked geeks anymore, just geeks). Earl got something resembling a real haircut. I still don't do many backgrounds, but that's just my way. I've told some fun stories, had some great gags (in my opinion), and basically had a blast doing the comic. There've been times it's felt more like an obligation than a hobby, but for the most part I've always looked forward to drawing each new comic.

Anyway, here's to 500 more! Hope you'll stick around for those.

Free Radical

If you ever get the chance to see the Flaming Lips in concert, do so. I don't care who you have to kill, maul, or trick to get tickets, just get them. Then have an Epic Experience. You'll thank me later.

Thursday, September 14, 2006

Technical Difficulties

So yeah, the site may be down for 24-48 hours while Adam gets rid of the .comicgenesis part of our URL. I'll post the comic as usual, and probably throw a link up in here so you guys can still see the comic on Friday. Please bear with us while we get this set up. It'll be worth it in the end.

Wednesday, September 13, 2006

"Bomb in my temple"

So I had a comic drawn for today. Honest. Drew it on Monday, but didn't scan or upload it.

And last night I had a headache that would've killed a normal man. Killed him, I say.

So yeah, comic will go up when I get home from work. I've already got Friday's comic sketched out, so it shouldn't take me too long to get it done as well.

Monday, September 11, 2006


Nothing says "closure" like insurance fraud.

I really enjoyed doing the Deity Kit storyline. I think it turned out fantastic. Some of the art was maybe a little rough and rushed, but for the most part the results were exactly what I wanted. And that's never a bad thing.

Of course, now I have to think of what to do next...

Monday, September 04, 2006

"Boom, Like That"

Happy Labor Day, folks! I know I appreciated the three-day weekend before school begins in earnest. All the little young'uns show up ready to learn again tomorrow (in theory, anyway). I've got new coworkers, we've got a few new students, and I get to teach some different classes. Should be fun.

A few comic links to get you through the long, lonely nights:

Order of the Stick is hilarious if you've ever played a traditional roleplaying game. Even if you haven't, it's still pretty damn funny (you'll just get more of the jokes if you have, that's all).

girl/robot is twisted, in a good way. Seeing innocence die over there on a daily basis is funny as hell, for some reason.

Eight to One
is finally updating regularly again, and yeahduff has lost none of his game.

The long-running Adventurers! is drawing to a close. Go check it out before the final credits roll.

Alright, back to loafing about and enjoying the gorgeous weather. Maybe I'll go play my guitar outside for awhile. Later, folks.

Saturday, September 02, 2006

IOU comic. I'll get it drawn sometime Saturday and have it posted hopefully.

Sunday, August 27, 2006

Where'd everyone go?

Seriously, we've gone from 160 average daily readers a few months ago to about 90. Is it just 'cause it's summer? Or are people not digging what I've been doing lately? Are folks annoyed that Monkey hasn't updated since Christmas? What's the deal, yo?

Honestly, part of me cares about our reader numbers and part of me doesn't. I like to think that what I do (and, of course, what Monkey does when he does comics) is worth reading and that people would want to check it out, but it's sorta depressing when we lose so many readers. Part of it might be, of course, that my update schedule's been a little Piro-like lately, but c'mon, it hasn't been that bad (honestly, I've done more comics in the past three months than Megatokyo has in the past six).

I know it sounds like I'm whining, but I'm really not. I'm mostly just curious. Those of you who are still with us: what do you like about what we're doing? What would you like to see different? What could we improve/change/go back to to make things better? Seriously, y'all are usually pretty quiet, but I'd really like to hear from some of you on this. Drop a line in the comments or email me at crookedhalo42[at]yahoo[dot]com.

Thursday, August 24, 2006

What I did on MY Vacation (significantly less interesting than Monkey's trip)

So I got home from Oklahoma last night. A week and a half visiting with family and some friends. I heard some good music, ate some good food, had some good conversations, played some pretty poor pool (turns out I am not a billiards pro, but a guy who did very poorly in geometry). I got to see all the relatives, hung out with some friends I hadn't expected to see, and got fed everywhere I went. Highly enjoyable, even if there was too much driving back and forth across the state of Oklahoma and up into Kansas.

Anyway, expect comics soon. Tomorrow, as a matter of fact.

Monday, August 14, 2006

A Veritable Burst of Creativity

So I got all the comics for the coming week and a half drawn this weekend, most of them on Sunday evening. It was a nice how fast and free the comics seemed to come, and the art was flowing pretty well, too. I've uploaded Monday's, and I'll put together and upload everything else in the morning before I leave for Oklahoma.

Probably won't have good internet connection while I'm back home, but I'll try to check in while I can. Try not to wreck anything while I'm gone, folks.

Wednesday, August 09, 2006


Internet was down at the apartment all night, so no comic despite the fact that I got one drawn last night. Hopefully we'll have a connection when I get home and I can upload it then.

Sunday, August 06, 2006

Redemption Songs

Okay, got not one but two comics uploaded for Monday. I was going to set one of them as last Friday's comic, but I figured this was a better way to make sure folks actually got to see them both.

Now I probably need to go draw a bunch more so that there are plenty of comics to cover my trip to Oklahoma...unless I could get really lucky and get guest comics for that week and a half (yeah, right).

Friday, August 04, 2006


Comic delayed on account of me not being able to hold a pen last night. I went rock climbing with the school yesterday afternoon, and now I ache all up and down my arms. I'll try to get something done while at work and have a comic for you tonight, but I make no promises today.

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

Blast from the past!

So I got today's comic uploaded as well as a "treat": a page from the ol' sketchbook o' doom. The page contains a couple of rough comics from my original conception of the Mercenary Missionary storyline, well before I'd even though of incorporating it into the Deity Kit story (or before I'd even thought of a Deity Kit). The dates on the two comics place them in July of 2003, so the idea's been kicking around for some time (that would've been the summer Clyde was staying with me in Norman. The Mercenary Missionary story was originally his idea). I think what I've done with the story is much stronger now than it was in 2003. I've grown as a storyteller.

Not that that's necessarily saying a whole lot, mind you.

Also, today's actual comic features three cameos by real people I know. I'll buy a beer for anyone who can recognize the folks in the three panels, including the bearded chap we only see part of in panel three.


Sorry there's no comic yet, folks. I selfishly chose to spend last night hanging out with Michelle to celebrate her birthday and then getting a decent night's sleep over drawing a comic for you. I'll get something drawn after work this afternoon. Hell, I may even be nice and do more than one comic to make up for it.

Sunday, July 09, 2006


Comic from Friday and comic for today are both posted now. Huzzah! More to come Wednesday and Friday and all. Stay tuned.

Thursday, July 06, 2006


Today was a long day, and I'm pretty damn tired, so I'll draw you a comic when I get home from work tomorrow. For now, I sleep.

Tuesday, July 04, 2006

Son of Narrative Causality

Hope everyone had a happy 4th of July, whether you celebrated it as a holiday or not (what? It has to be a holiday before it's allowed to be happy?). I did many interesting things and had a splendid time.

Monday was my mother's birthday, so happy birthday to her.

Narrative causality, of course, is the idea of Murphy's Law, basically. Saying something like "how could it get any worse?" or "it's quiet...too quiet" instantly leads to something worse happening or all hell breaking loose. It's a fun literary device, really.

Thursday, June 29, 2006


As some of you probably know, I'm a teacher at a small school in Springfield, VA. We've only got about 50 students there total, so it's a small and close-knit community.

I found out Wednesday afternoon that one of our students had passed away the day before. He had a heart attack in his sleep and just...never woke up. As you can imagine, this has been a tremendous blow to our little community. We're all in a state of shock.

Michael had found out about my comic about two weeks before school ended. He'd read through the Crooked Halo archive in one night, he liked it so much. He kept asking me when the next comic would be out.

His memorial service will be this Sunday, and I'll be there. I'll be there to say goodbye to a student, a reader, a fellow anime fanatic, and a friend.

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Look! Up in the--meh, you know the rest.

I officially have tickets to see Superman Returns tonight. There will be much rejoicing.

Mercs for hire

Today's comic features a cameo by Jin and Juno from The Jaded. I figured they weren't real busy (since The Jaded is on hiatus until the marvelous Ping Teo finishes up one of her other comics, The Longest Sojourn), so it'd be the perfect opportunity.

Plus, Adam sorta mentioned something about them in a comment and this whole thing popped into my head.

Juno and Jin have visited several times before. They were Jerome's bodyguards when he was running for President, and Juno, Earl, and Clyde were all participants in a meeting of Boy Banders Anonymous. So Juno and Jin are no strangers to Crooked Halo.

Anyway, I'm not entirely sure where it'll go from here...well, I sorta am, but I'm not sure how I'll get there. We'll see, I guess.

Friday, June 23, 2006

Who'll stop the rain?

Sorry today's comic wasn't posted at the usual time. There was a huge thunderstorm here last night and my computer spent most of the night turned off. Also, I didn't like the first draft of the script and decided to re-write it today. Anyway, comic is now up. Enjoy.

Tuesday, June 20, 2006

Hey Todd McFarlane

I just finished reading Batman: Year Two - Fear the Reaper. Good graphic novel. Felt like a classic Batman story, only written much more recently. Your art (from Chapter 2 on, since Alan Davis did Chapter 1) fit pretty well.

But the capes, man. What's up with the capes?

I knew you had a cape fetish thing. I'd seen some Spawn stuff. I knew you had this thing where you had to make the cape all angular and forty feet long. And yeah, it looks cool, and for Spawn it's not really a problem I guess (what with his costume being a part of him or whatever), but does it really work for Batman? I'd argue that it doesn't, really. See, Batman's a practical sorta guy, y'know? The whole humongous cape thing doesn't really work for him, even if it does look spiffy.

But hey, I know that's your thing. I'm sure that if Spide-Man had had a cape, it would've been gigantic, too. Hell, I'm surprised you didn't give him one when you were drawing that comic anyway. Besides, this comic was done back in like 1987, when I'm sure you were just trying to get by and draw big capes on any comic character you could. I understand.

So yeah, I'd stick to action figures. Speaking of, any chance of another series of Beatles figures? Those were fab.

Friday, June 16, 2006

Another Candle on the Cake

Sunday marks the third anniversary of Dim Bulb Comics on Keenspace/Comic Genesis! That's right, we've last two and a half years longer than most webcomics.

Admittedly, year three was kinda rough for us. Troubled Times lived up to its name, dying the disgraceful death of negligence that it probably deserved. Vapor Lock hit a spot where Adam sorta ran out of steam. And Crooked Halo's updates haven't necessarily been the most reliable things ever.

There've been some good things, though. I've passed the 450 mark on actual Crooked Halo comics. We got linked (thanks to Adam's fantastic fanart) by Schlock Mercenary, and that brought us some new readers (which I promptly lost due to Megatokyo-esque updates). Adam's got a couple of new ideas cooking, and we should see something on those here soon. We've also made fun of a lot of stuff, and that's always a positive thing.

Anyway, if anyone wants to send some fanart or anything, we'd be more than happy to see it. You can send stuff to crookedhalo42 at yahoo dot com.

Here's to another year of whatever the hell it is we really do around here!

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

"They say it's your birthday"

Wednesday, June 14th marks my brother Clif's birthday. He's the inspiration for Clyde, and a good deal of the stories (and dialogue) that involve Clyde are lifted almost verbatim from conversations with my brother (the Yellowstone Saga, for instance, or Clyde's summer with the governor's office). He's a heckuva guy and he keeps me working hard to make the comic funny (usually by saying, "Gee, Chuck, that last storyline kinda sucked. Do something funny again"), so happy birthday to the Real Life Clyde!

Saturday, June 10, 2006

"Down the Block, Not Across the Street"

Sorry about not having a real comic Friday, but I've got something just as cooler: a sketch from Mr. R.K. Milholland, the artist of Something Positive. He was doing a reader meet-n-greet down in Richmond, so Michelle and I headed down there and got sketches. So here's a Choo-Choo Bear for you. New comic on Monday.

Friday, June 09, 2006


You guys sorta know the drill by now: comic'll be up later this afternoon. I spent all day chasing students around King's Dominion and then had to run a bunch of errands when I got home, so I was too tired and too busy to really get anything comic-like done. I should have something for you after work, though.

Tuesday, June 06, 2006


Well, Tuesday was supposedly the day of the Apocalypse. I'm guessing that didn't come true since it's like 12.15 right now.

Re-watched Batman Begins while drawing the comic. Nice to see a good comic book movie, unlike that unmitigated piece o' crap X3. I saw it the night it came out (knowing, in advance, that it probabyl wasn't going to live up to my expectations from the first two), and seriously, did Brett Ratner expect us to just go, "oooh, fight scenes! Pretty!" and completely forget about coherent plot or characterization? Characters were given little to no motivation for their actions, the scenes in the flick just sorta came one after the other with no reason or transition, and the dialogue...oh dear God in Heaven, the dialogue. Anytime Storm and Wolverine were on the screen together and not fighting something, I felt a little piece of me die. How can two such talented actors manage to convey absolutely no emotional depth? Easy: a shitty script. Relationships from the previous flicks were completely ignored, characters didn't so much interact with one another as happen to exist in the same space for no real reason, and the whole thing made me sad. It coulda been so much better.

Superman Returns looks sweet, though. Ghost Rider, on the other hand...who thought Nicholas Cage would make a good superhero? And why, of all characters to pick, did they go with Ghost-freakin'-Rider? He's a flaming skeleton thing who rides a motorcycle. It's just...ugh. Forget it. I'm going to bed now. Enjoy the comic.

Sunday, June 04, 2006


Monday's comic (and the storyline I'm thinking I might go ahead and do) is based on a short story I wrote last summer called, appropriately, "Deity Kit." In the short story, it wasn't Jerome who got the kit, of course, but the idea remains the same. It did have Earl in it, though. I think this'll be a great storyline to draw. Feel free to let me know what you think as it progresses.

Only a couple of weeks left of class at the school where I work. We'll have a couple of weeks of break, then hopefully I'll be teaching summer school ('cause paying rent and eating are things I've grown attached to). It shouldn't interfere with the comic updating (anymore than work has so far). In fact, I may use some of that time off to get ahead with the comics.

Alright, off to bed. Later, folks.

Monday, May 29, 2006

Comic Up

Comic has now been uploaded and all. Happy Memorial Day, folks.

Open All Night

It's 1.00 am, and I just got in from a Bruce Springsteen concert. Tomorrow (or today, if you will) is Memorial Day, so I don't have to work. That means that I'll draw and post a comic as soon as I get up. Just for you, because I really like you people. No, honestly. I do. I'd take a bullet for ya.

Well, maybe not a bullet. But I'd let someone yell at me for you.

Okay, maybe not that. But I'd take a complement for you. That's for sure. I'd definitely do that.

Unless it was a complement for something I didn't like. But you get the idea, I think.

Wednesday, May 24, 2006


Okay, so I've got the comic done and uploaded. I went ahead and uploaded a sketch thing for Wednesday instead of the comic, which will now update on Friday. This made more sense to me, since Adam's got a sketch up on Thursday. So, enjoy this week full o' art, folks.

Tuesday, May 23, 2006


So the program I use to clean up, resize, and letter the comic isn't wanting to work tonight. The comic is drawn and scanned, but the software isn't cooperating. As I'm already dead freakin' tired, the comic will update when I get home from work tomorrow evening. I also plan on drawing Friday's comic tomorrow night so there won't be an interruption there. I'll keep ya posted, and sorry about the delay.

Also, Adam irons his pants? What's that all about?

Sunday, May 21, 2006

Curse you, Education!

Just a fair warning: I'm in the throes of a stupid final paper for the education course I'm currently finishing up, so there may or may not be a Monday comic. Wednesday could be kinda iffy, too. And Friday...well, I've got a camping trip on Thursday night, but I'm gonna try to get the comic drawn early.

In short, this will either be a comic-less week, or a potentially fewer-comics week. With any luck, the paper will start flowing more quickly and I'll be able to crank out a couple of comics (I already know what I want Monday and Wednesday's comics to be).

It's frustrating, though. I thought getting a job meant I didn't have to deal with this crap anymore. Barring that, I figured they'd make eduacation classes for the folks who're already teachers require a little less busy work or major papers. I mean, seriously, we're all working full-time, and none of us really has the time to do this crap. This professor is so getting a negative evaluation at the end of the course.

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

Now with 75% more game references and riboflavin!

Apparently I now do a gaming comic and never even noticed that I'd slipped into that. Hmm.

Check back Thursday for something completely different. Honest. It's not even drawn by me, which should tell you immediately that it'll be something completely different that what you're used to.

Hurray! A comic! And Monday's is already drawn and posted already! Ain't that swell? Keen, even?

I also already know what the next couple o' comics will be about, and I've got Wednesday's already scripted in my head. Just hafta draw it now.

Comic-Drawing Guy, away!

Work Broke the Chuck

Seriously, work just freakin' exhausted me this week. And what with all the major projects for my thrice-cursed graduate class, I've been swamped. I'm heading to bed now, and when I get up tomorrow, I'm gonna make a concerted effort to draw several comics. I may even go ahead and post some of them (along with those promised sketches...if I can remember where I put 'em). I really am sorry about this, but work's had to take precedence (never thought I'd hear myself say that).

Wednesday, May 10, 2006


So yeah, no comic as yet. I've got it scripted; I'm debating with myself whether to go ahead and try to push it and get it done tonight, or just wait until Friday. I keep telling myself I'm going to start drawing the comics further in advance, but it hasn't happened yet. So much going on, and the next couple of weeks are crazy as I get into the last few sessions (and all the major projects) for my current graduate course. Stupid education classes.

I do have some sketches that, if nothing else, I'll post this evening when I get home from work. I owe you guys something, I guess.

The Skinny on Panel 3

So panel three contains an in-joke with my brothers that no one else'd really get. Peeing blood is not, in fact, a symptom of West Nile Virus (as far as I know, anyway), but there's a story behind this (as there usually is).

A few years back, Clif (the real-life Clyde) had some sort of...thing wherein he peed blood for a week or two (and he's gonna hate me for life for sharing this information). Visits to specialists revealed some sort of UT infection that he had to take medication for for a few weeks. Anyway, part of the problem was that whatever he had was potentially communicable, so no one could drink after him or anything like that.

Anyway, one day our youngest brother, Scott, came home from a visit to Sonic (the best fast food joint ever) with a slush, and Clif grabbed it and took a sip. My mom yelled at him for potentially spreading his germs, and Scott said something to the effect of, "Yeah, I don't want to get West Nile Virus or whatever it is you've got!" And it stuck. Anytime someone at home was sick, we'd ask if they had West Nile Virus. Whenever we asked what someone's symptoms were, we'd ask if they were peein' blood (thus confirming the West Nile Virus if they were).

It occurs to me that this story is probably really only funny to my family. Oh well.

The REAL Reason

So yeah, there wasn't a comic Wednesday, as you may've noticed. Tuesday nights are kicking my butt (which would make you think that I'd just start drawing two comics on Sunday or draw one Sunday and one Monday, but that would require forethought). Thus, you've had to stare at Monday's comic for several days now.

But that's really the Monkey's fault. See, if he were actually updating, there'd have been a comic (or maybe even two) between Monday and now. But no, he isn't updating right now.

So the lack of new comics is really Adam's fault, not mine. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Monday, May 01, 2006

It's True

Seriously, I don't know how the body produces so much snot when you're sick, but it does. I must've blown my nose a few dozen times over the weekend, and each time it was like I'd tapped into some Niagara Falls of mucus or something. "Where is it all coming from?!" I'd wail, gnashing my teeth and clearing my throat.

And yeah, I probably ingested my body weight in snot this weekend. Not pleasant in the least.

Expect a slightly less-disgusting comic Wednesday.

Thursday, April 27, 2006


Don't expect a comic Friday morning on account of (1) I don't have any ideas hammered out yet and (2) I'm kinda under the weather and don't feel up to coming up with something funny (no, Michelle, I am NOT sick. Just under the weather. Yeah, that's the ticket). Hopefully there'll be something by Friday evening.

Apathism High Holy Day

Today, the day after Easter, is the official high holy day of the Apathy Religion, which my friend James came up with way back during college. See, the idea is to go to Wal-Mart or Target or whatever the day after Easter and buy all the discounted Easter candy you can carry. Or not. Whatever. It's a religion based on apathy, so we really don't give a damn what you do.

Wal-Mart really does carry the chocolate Jesus, by the way. He comes in milk chocolate and white chocolate varieties, which is probably some sort of commentary on something somewhere. I dunno.

Oh, and the Tom Waits song Simon references, "Chocolate Jesus," is really freaking cool. Tom Waits is my hero. I wish I had a whiskey-soaked rasp like he does.

Totally Adam's Fault

He dared me to do it. I had to defend my honor, such as it is.

Join us next week, as I hopefully stop just doing what other people recommend.

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

Totally Not My Fault

This comic is totally not my fault. Honest. Though I do need to stop taking the statement "there should be a comic about ______________" as a personal challenge.

On the positive side, it's about accountants, and taxes are due by Monday. See? Totally relevant and timely; unlike, say, Monday's comic.

And for the record, I took a damn long time to get that outfit to look like PVC. I probably totally failed, but hey, I never said I was good with highlights and all that jazz.

Delay Explained

Sorry about the delay, folks. My grandparents have been visiting the past few days, and I know I said it wouldn't interfere with the comic, but I neglected to take into consideration just how tiring old folks can be. I was wiped out last night, so I didn't get anything drawn. I've got an idea for the comic, I just have to put pen to paper. It'll be up sometime later today, after I've run needful errands (like sending off my income taxes).

Goin' to the Chapel...

Friday's comic is a congratulatory note to my roommates, Tim and Wendy, who're getting married this Saturday. I was this close to having to be a bridesman in the ceremony, but lucked out and just have to be an usher and coordinator instead (dodged the white tuxedo bullet! Thank God!).

Anyway, I have spring break next week (breaks are one of those great advantages of being a teacher). Comics will continue as usual, despite an impending visit from my grandparents (hey, I didn't let moving halfway across the country stop me from making comics, so why would this?). Have a good weekend, folks.

Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Just a quick note... let you know that the comic for today will be delayed until I can get home from work and finish it. I spent most of the evening in class or chatting with a friend from Oklahoma, so I didn't get started until too late. Sorry about the delay.

Guest Comic!

The (somewhat belated but totally worth it) comic is a surprise guest comic from Ping Teo! Ping, for those of you living under a rock, is the amazing artist behind The Jaded, The Longest Sojourn, and the webcomics journey blog Webcomic Finds. I also did a comic for The Longest Sojourn, though I dunno if she's had a chance to post it yet. I'm always floored by what she can do with her tablet o' power, and this case is no exception.

Besides, she had Bob the Goat say "Oh crumbs." Does it get any better than that? I don't think so.

Thursday, March 30, 2006


No new comic on Friday, 'cause there'll be one on Saturday instead. I think you'll be pleased.

Monday, March 27, 2006

Birthday Bash

So today's my birthday. My present to you is a brand-spankin' new comic! Aren't you lucky?

Tuesday, March 21, 2006

Stuff and the Happening Thereof

Sorry folks, but no new comic for Wednesday. I've got too much on my mind tonight to draw anything. I've got a script done up, so I'll hopefully get something put together tomorrow after work. Sorry about this, but I've just got too much on my mind at the moment to crank out the funny.

Sunday, March 19, 2006

Freakin' CG...

So it looks like Comic Genesis is down for some reason, so I wasn't able to upload Monday's comic tonight. I'll try to take care of it tomorrow morning. It's frustrating when I actually get a comic done and can't upload it.

So yeah. That's where we stand.

Edit: I got the comic uploaded this morning. Should show up soon on the site, I hope.

Saturday, March 18, 2006


Back when we relied on our crappy old forum to save our rants, I'd posted several doodles at random times. The posts those were in were somehow lost when the forum hiccupped, so those six doodles have become lost to the internet and my harddrive.

Well, for the hell of it--and by way of apologizing for all the late-ass strips I've been posting (or failing to post)--here're those six doodles. I might try to dig up a couple more this weekend for your pleasure. Enjoy.

The Scheduling Gods Hate Me

So yeah, there'll be no new comic Wednesday morning. I'm hoping to have something for Wednesday night. I had a comic lined up, but decided to scrap it 'cause it sucked. I need to figure out what the hell I'm doing with the rest of this storyline so I can get it done and get back to random jokes about smiting.

Anyway, hope to have something for you tomorrow night. We'll see.

Afterglow 61

In taking a look at our site stats over the past couple of months, it looks like we're averaging a good 30 or 40 people more per month than we were before the Schlock link. So that's cool.

What's sad is that I'm able to measure our growth in mere double-digit numbers. Yes, Dim Bulb is truly in the lower echelons of webcomic greatness.

But hey, I don't want to really complain about this stuff. That anyone is reading what we're doing pleases me. I'd probably still be doing this if the only people reading it were my parents and brothers. Hell, I'd probably be doing it if I were the only person reading them (and there are so many I've done that you'll never see, that will never be exhumed from their sketchbook coffin to see the ghastly light of day. Be thankful for that).

Anyway, happy Monday, everyone. I'm off to earn my pay (or at least pretend I'm earning it...whatever).

The Goat Returns

So, Bob the Goat.

Most of the people reading the comic now weren't reading it during my original run back during my college days in Arkansas. I just emailed comics out three days a week to my friends and family. Worked pretty well, because they had a free comic delievered right to their inbox, and I got to amuse and entertain folks.

One of the characters that I used back then was Bob the Goat. I actually developed him back in high school, just as I did most of the other characters. Bob was inspired by a friend of mine in a concurrent class I was taking up at St. Gregory's University. He had an old Adam Sandler audio clip as the startup noise for his computer ("I am a simple goat, I live in the back of a pickup truck"), and that led me to draw a goat-like thing that wore pants and shoes and stood upright. Of course, we had to name it "Bob." And for several years there, then, I slipped Bob into comics.

He was originally Simon's (then named Joey, for some bizarre reason) pet, though God only knows where I came up with that idea, and he tended to eat anything and everything (especially Simon's books). This led to a couple of amusing jokes, but the character struck me as a little one-dimensional, a one-note joke character with no development, blah blah blah. So when we did the big revamp for the move to Keenspace back in 2003, I decided to ditch poor Bob in favor of incorporating characters like Tim Tation and Tammy the Succubus into the cast.

But then a few weeks ago, an old friend of mine from high school, Trevor, won a little contest where he got a free piece of art from me. And he'd mentioned he missed Bob the Goat, so I drew ol' Bob for him and mailed it off. And that got me thinking...thinking about the poor character I'd discarded, left for dead on a piece of paper shoved in a sketchbook. And I decided to revive Bob, to give him a home once more.

Because let's face it: goats are damn funny.

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Miracle of Miracles!

Hey, I got a comic done tonight and uploaded, beating the Second Coming against all odds! Hopefully this'll be a trend, y'know?

I'm excited about what's coming up with the storyline. I'm introducing a character very near and dear to my heart. Hopefully everyone'll enjoy it. If not, tough.

Monday, February 27, 2006

Son of Son of a...

So yeah, rumors of my death and so on.

Sorry about being so flakey with the comics lately. Part of it has been a bunch of crap I've had no control over, such as being dead tired Thursday night, taking a friend of mine halfway across the state last night, etc. I've got the next couple of comics scripted, at least, so it's just a matter of finding time to actually draw the damn things.

Anyway, I've uploaded a couple of drawings I did the other day and then actually colored (in colored pencil. I'm not one of them fancy-shmancy artists who use Wacom Tablets and that jazz). I'm actually fairly pleased with the way they turned out, both in terms of the drawings (which are fairly basic, really, but still pretty well-done) and the coloring (even if it is only flat color and done in colored pencil).

So yeah, real comic should pop up Wednesday. Honest.

Wednesday, February 22, 2006

Son of a...

Noticed this morning when I checked the comic that there was a stupid freakin' typo in the third panel. I've since corrected the typo and uploaded the revised comic to the server, so, that should go up at the auto-update time. Until then, enjoy the fact that I can't spell for crap when I'm dead tired and not paying attention to what I'm doing.

Making Up

So I know I promised a comic on Saturday, but that just didn't happen what with one thing and another. So here's two comics today for the price of a single comic!

Please just ignore the fact that you aren't paying anything for any of these. That has no bearing on this discussion at all.

The first comic features my all-time favorite word: obsquatulate. It's a real, honest-to-God word, and it really does mean "to depart camp quickly." Why they needed a word like that to have that meaning I'll never know. I always thought a much more effective method of saying that was "RUN!" But Clif (the real-life Clyde) provided me with Jerome's dialogue for the third panel and told me that this had to be a comic, so that one is all his fault. The second comic simply references something my friend Michelle noticed about the shape of the vortex. Honestly, does that mean that Cletus was just reborn? 'Cause that'd just be weird.

Anyway, I'm not at all sure where this is going to go next. At all. Maybe that'll change between now and Wednesday's comic. We can only hope.

Monday, February 13, 2006

Laying the Blame

If the comics over the next week or two are really bizarre and make little sense, it's totally the Monkey's fault for encouraging me to pursue my whimsy and the totally random, offhand-not-to-be-taken-seriously suggestion I made about where I could take my current story. He should totally know better than to say things like, "Now I'm curious about how that'd work" and "I want to see how you'd pull that off." Y'know, stuff like that. And laughing. He totally shouldn't have laughed, 'cause we all know that just encourages me to go even further.

So that's just, y'know, an FYI.

Wednesday, February 08, 2006

And that's taken care of now...

Finally got the comic done. It'll update when the site auto-updates later tonight. Sorry about the delay. I'll try not to let the same thing happen for Friday.

Really. Honest.

Curse of the Long Day

So Tuesdays are really bad days for me, it seems. They're my long days, when I'm at work until 4.00 and then go straight to a class that lasts until 8.30 or so. By the time I get home, grab a bite to eat, and get stuff done for school for Wednesday, there's not much time for doing a comic, especially when I haven't figured out what the hell the comic will be about yet.

All this is by the way of explaining why there's no new comic for Wednesday quite yet. I'll draw one Wednesday when I get home from work, honest. I'm gonna figure out a better schedule (and maybe start scripting comics ahead of time again, like I did back in the day) so this doesn't happen. Believe me, I hate missing an update more than you do, and I've missed entirely too many lately (yeah, I know, there are no actual gaps in the comics, but there've been too many of these "I'll draw it tomorrow" days for my liking).

Until then, continue to enjoy Adam's teaser art. The concept, if it's the one I'm thinking of, is pretty groovy, I must say. I'm curious to see what the Monkey comes up with.

Monday, February 06, 2006

The Jaded

The Jaded is now free again! It's been on Graphic Smash, a subscription site through the Modern Tales family, for the past year and a half or so. While this was great for Ping in terms of visitors and all that jazz, it made it tough to really follow the comic (which is very plot-heavy, 'cause it has to be). Keeping track of what happened from one week to the next was impossible if you didn't have a subscription.

Well, Ping's taken the comic off Graphic Smash and it's strictly free again. While there isn't the promise of immediate new comics, we do have a message from Ping making it clear that the comic isn't dead and won't be disappearing. I, for one, will be glad to see The Jaded start back up. I enjoy Longest Sojourn, but I miss me some gritty merc action. I might even have a chance to read through the archive again to catch up before she starts again.


Man, always with the site not updating even when I've done a comic.

There is a comic, I swear. I drew it and uploaded it myself last night.

Anyway, I've tried doing a manual update. We'll see if that works. Dunno why the damn thing didn't update like it should.

Thursday, February 02, 2006

Funk Pop a Roll

I'm really pleased with the way Friday's comic turned out, both idea-wise and art-wise. In fact, I'm especially proud of the art, which I feel is some of my best in quite a while (especially the third and fourth panels). Anyway, it looks like the spectre of continuity is about to rear its ugly head, so consider yourselves forewarned and stuff.

For the record: the day that Howard Tayler linked us, we recorded a record 1600 unique visitors. To put that in perspective: our previous best day was around 200. Our average is about 120-130.

And even though a good majority of those didn't return the next day, we still managed a solid 450 unique visitors, so I guess some of you are (1) just now seeing the link in his blog thingie and coming over to check us out or (2) have decided to stick around a bit and see what we're all about. Either way, thanks for joining us. Crooked Halo is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and Adam's currently on a hiatus thing. We hope he'll be back in action again soon, but until then, feel free to cruise the Vapor Lock and Crooked Halo archives, catch up on what's going down, and settle in for what we hope is some comic hilarity.

And pie. There could very possibly be pie*.

* - pie not guaranteed.

Schlock to the System

So some time back (waaaaaay back, really), Adam did a little "let's see how many cameos I can work into a single comic" thing. For some of 'em, he asked permission; most notably, from Howard Tayler, the more-machine-now-than-man who cranks out the excellent Schlock Mercenary on a daily basis (there is a rumor that the world will come to an end the day Mr. Tayler misses an update. If that's the case, I think we're all pretty safe). Mr. Tayler was gracious enough to give Adam permission--after all, it didn't really hurt him that our 100-visitors-per-day, not-makin'-any-money-off-this website featured a couple of his characters--and Adam put 'em in. And a couple months back, Adam did a little fanart in appreciation and thanks for that graciousness.

Well, today, Howard Tayler posted that fanart in his blog on the Schlock Mercenary site along with a link to Dim Bulb. To be linked by Mr. Tayler is a huge honor. Adam and I have both been reading Schlock for several years; in fact, it was Adam who got me into the comic in the first place.

Anyway, to the folks who wandered over here from Schlock Mercenary, welcome. We've got a kind of strange setup here, what with running more than one comic through the site. There are convenient archive buttons that'll take you through the two individual comics separately (seeing as how we alternate days and stuff; it's awful difficult navigating between both Vapor Lock and Crooked Halo otherwise). We hope you'll stick around with us, maybe even add us to your bookmarks. That'd be swell, really.

Everybody Loves Ringo

Ah, poor Ringo, the lovable loser Beatle. Let's be honest: Ringo was never the heavy-hitter the other three Beatles were. There was no way he could be. You needed someone down-to-earth to ground John, Paul, and George.

And Ringo's solo career...Ringo's solo records are enjoyable solely because he's just being Ringo. He doesn't try to be artsy like Lennon, or a catchy pop tunesmith like McCartney, or a mystic spiritualist like Harrison. He's just always Ringo. It means there's not much depth or substance to his work, but it's fun, it's upbeat, and it's generally enjoyable.

That being said, I picked up his record Ringo earlier today. Great album, actually. It's got "Photograph" and "You're Sixteen" on it as well as the single "It Don't Come Easy." Probably the most interesting aspect of it was that it's essentially a Beatles reunion record: the other three all contribute songs to the record and all appear at one point or another to back up the lovable drummer. It was probably a case of the other three lads thinking, "Oh, poor Ringo. No one loves Ringo. I should go 'round and help him out a bit." But Ringo really gets the last laugh, see, 'cause he got them to do so much of the work for him. Never let it be said that Ringo was a complete fizzle.

Thursday, January 26, 2006


They say the biggest problem with missing an update is that you set a precedent. Once you're late on one, it becomes easy to miss one. Once you miss one, it becomes easy to miss two, then three, then a whole month goes by and you haven't drawn a single damn comic.

Megatokyo is one of the best-known (or worst?) perpetrators of this webcomic crime. There are plenty of others--hell, Keenspace (and now Comic Genesis) was always lousy with the ones who started, got bogged down, and just gave up--but Megatokyo has a good three and a half year head start on me and they've only got 813 comics (this includes the infamous "Shirt Guy Dom" and "Dead Piro Day" strips, which really don't count. I mean, seriously, there's nearly as much filler as there are actual comics). Actions are habit-forming, and bad habits are the easiest to form.

All that being said, no, there's no comic yet for Friday. There will be one when I get home from work. I'm going to take some time this weekend and try to get ahead with the comic--hell, not having to write anymore lesson plans ought to make that easy--and see if I can't crank out something like a buffer. Back when we first started, I had comics ready weeks in advance, sometimes, and I kept cranking them out like nobody's business. That was the advantage of the college (or graduate school, to be more specific) lifestyle: I could draw at work, I had more free time, and I usually didn't have any time in the morning when I had to be awake.

So there should hopefully be a comic up around 7.00 or 8.00 tomorrow evening. Barring that, it'll be up after the auto-update Saturday.

Honestly, this annoys me as much as it probably does you--hell, moreso--but sometimes it just can't be helped. I can't stay up all hours of the night anymore. Folks expect me to be coherent and deal with people at work now, not just poorly-written student-athlete college papers. God, growing up sucks sometimes.

Tuesday, January 24, 2006


Wednesday's comic is a reference to a movie. Be the first to tell me the name of the comic in the comments section of this rantspace, and I'll mail you an actual piece of original Crooked Halo art. Honest.

So, good luck guessing; I don't think the movie is too obscure or the hint too vague (if anything, it might be too obvious).

Monday, January 23, 2006

Unfortunate Delay

Yeah, today's comic will be up sometime this evening. I didn't really get around to it on Sunday, unfortunately. I've got an idea for one, I just didn't get it drawn. Sorry about this, folks. Very unprofessional of me.

Wait, I'm not getting paid for this! Ha!

Saturday, January 21, 2006

Revisionist History!

Alternate text for the thought balloon in the third panel of Friday's comic:

"Man, this is prom night all over again."

Wednesday, January 18, 2006


I don't know why the comic I uploaded last night hasn't shown up on the site yet. I'll fix it when I get home this afternoon/early evening.

Too bad, too; I'm really proud of the next comic, which brings our adventures in muiscal territory to a decidedly happy ending.

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Lucky Numbers

Friday the 13th's comic marks the 400th Crooked Halo comic on Dim Bulb's Keenspace/Comic Genesis site. That's a heckuva mess of comics, if I do say so myself. Most webcomics have a life expectancy of about 10 updates. Maybe fifty, if the artist is industrious and really committed. But all too often, webcomic artists just sort of...give up. They lose interest, it gets too complicated, they run out of time, etc. All sorts of real life comes up.

There've been times I've considered giving up or at least going on a hiatus to recharge the batteries. There've been comics I haven't been happy with, storylines I wish I'd executed differently, art I wish I could erase and do over. But I'm glad I've done the comics, I really am. I'm proud that I've gone this long with it. I think I'm starting to develop some halfway compelling characters, even (there's probably room for debate there), and I think some of the jokes have been drop-dead funny (again, probably plenty of room for debate).

The premise remains simple, though: what if a young man were the focus of the battle between good and evil? What if forces he couldn't understand were fighting over his very soul? What if he was aware of their existence, aware they were fighting over him, and still had to get a term paper written before the end of the week? Then you'd have poor Simon, and you'd have Crooked Halo.

The college comic about a guy and his wacky, sarcastic friends/roommates/whatever may be an oft-used setting, but that's because it's fun and there's room for variation in it. The possibilities are nigh endless, especially when you throw in a smite-happy archangel, a mediocre temptor, a PhD-toting hillbilly ten year old, and a whole bunch of others besides. The whole point to me has always been to take cliches and common situations/characters and twist them, make them unique. Maybe I've succeeded, maybe I haven't, but I've enjoyed it the whole way, and I'm glad you folks have been along for the ride. Crooked Halo is just getting started. I could foresee doing this comic for years, letting the characters grow and develop and change and move on in their lives, not just staying in college and dealing with childhood things. There are really lots of things to do with the characters, when you think about it.

So yeah, thanks for reading. Here's to 400 more.

Sunday, January 08, 2006

Potential Problem

Hey folks. If you're reading this, it's probably not over at Dim Bulb. Apparently Comic Genesis is having some sort of problem, and the whole metasite is down. I'm still working on tomorrow's comic, but if the site doesn't come back up, I'll post a link to the comic here for your comical needs. Just a head's up, I guess. Back to work for me.

"I Dig Chicks"

Today's song is a real, actual song, believe it or not: my brother and I wrote the song during our summer in Yellowstone National Park back in 2002 (still one of my most productive couple of months ever). The song has a sort of Kinks-ish feel to it, rather like "You Really Got me Going" or "All Day and all of the Night." In other words, it's just supposed to be fun.

Stay tuned for Monday, when another character takes centerstage and sings their poorly-drawn heart out for your entertainment!
