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

Birthday Bash

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

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.

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.

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.
