I'm not letting this die, darnit!

I'm doing my best not to stretch to the point of breaking, but it's not easy. I'm not going to let this comic fade into the grave. Just bear with me here, please. I am trying. :P

So I'll definitely have a comic up sometime next week. Look totally forward to it. :P

It's on the Way

A new strip is in the works, so be excited! Or not. It's your choice. Maybe I'm biased, but I know that I'd be excited. There is a lot of art involved in this next strip, so I'm putting a lot of effort into prettifying it. Go ahead and get excited again. If it pleases you.

I also made some changes to the layout today. You should obviously be able to see the homepage changes, but I also updated a few of the images, and just generally tied up a few loose ends. I tried to move the stars and the rating text to better align with the images, but It's still a little wonky. I'm tired of screwing with it, though. :P

Anyways, hopefully you'll see a new strip either tonight or sometime tomorrow. Until then you should definitely go listen to Ladies and Gentlemen by Saliva. It has nothing to do with TBOG. But it's friggin awesome. That's all.

Neglect and Stuff

So the big question has been: where the moose is TG? I've been living, and, as unfortunate as it is, living trumps internet.

At this point I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with this comic. I may stay on hiatus longer, or I might just shut the whole thing down completely, marking yet another comic that falls to a painful death of neglect.

The main problem right now is that I can't come up with one original joke to save my life. Maybe it's time for an author. Maybe.

So if anyone actually reads this, maybe you could comment and encourage/discourage the continuation of The Ballad of Goomba.

Leaving for a week.

You won't get any comics for at least a week. I'll be somewhere with no internet, computers, etc. Anyway, hopefully I'll get something up soon after that. In the meantime, rates and comments are good. Really good. Like, FDA approved good.

Back with 7lbs of explaination

To explain my absence, I'm going to quote myself. I don't feel like saying the same thing twice. "I got burnt out of making comics for a while. I was kinda stressing over each one and deadlines and Photoshop OH MY! Basically, I lost all motivation, and the comics lost all their appeal. I couldn't think of one good joke to save my life, and I wasn't to thrilled about the 2-3 hours I'd spent clicking around Photoshop after the idea surfaced." I am back now, though. If I can get some ideas going. If.

For a while the site's design was all screwed up. What happened was the server I was using to host all the images and the stylesheet deleted everything I had stored on there. So now I'm using Photobucket for the images, and I just put the stylesheet in the actual HTML instead of linking to it. If you didn't understand any of that, the basic gist of it is that now everything is normal again.

It lives?

Yes, I'm still alive. I know, it's been forever, quit slacking, etc. As annoying as this excuse may be, I have an active life away from the internets. Sorry for the long wait.

Expect a new strip in a few days.

Vacation Abounds

I will be leaving on vacation Sunday, so, unfortunately, you may or may not see another strip until sometime mid-June. If I get some extra time and internet access, I'll try to get a strip or two up. Otherwise, I'll see you in a few weeks.
