Video games don't kill people. COMICS kill people.

 ;D Too bad you can't do an animated GIF to show the tic.  I suppose leaving it to the imagination does make it funnier though.

I had a sudden burst of comic-related productivity, and I'm passing the savings on to YOU!

  Please feel free to keep having those bursts, as long as they're not  painful, of course.

  And the crabhat does look quite spiffy. But will it work? We shall see... :lol:

Wow, your strip is closely becoming "Concerned" in terms of humorous quality. 

That's a good thing.  ;D

(Psst! For those who haven't read Concerned before, here: http://www.hlcomic.com/)

And WIR turns 20!



So tell me what you guys think of this: after roughly 5 more pages, I'll have finished the first chunk of the story. I thought it might be fun to take all the pages and compile them into a PDF-book format for anyone wanting to read the whole thing from start to finish. This pdf would be "When In Ravenholm: Issue One", and then further story arcs can be numbered sequentially after that.

And to sweeten the pot, why not toss in some extras? I'm considering making some bonus strips or LOLSources, and I'm open to other suggestions as well. In fact, I'd be more than willing to open it up to submissions from Forums members. For example, if we have willing participants of the artistic variety, I'd be happy to include zombie/HL2 themed artwork. Or, if we wanted to be more "literary", perhaps an introduction from one of our resident review writers. Then Starfox could put a download link up as a Foxhole collaborative piece.

But these are only my personal musings. What do YOU think?

LB -- first, congratulations on delivering a clever, witty drama that has only increased in intelligence as the series has progressed (i.e. the first few were not as good, but the last ones have been spot-on awesome!  :onethumb: )

That said, I like your ideas to develop a WIR PDF for download to Foxhole visitors. I'm not artistic in the visual sense, but I could be prodded to add something of the literary variety if desired. Let's see what others suggest!

Thanks bobdog! It's like I've always said, wit and intelligence is best measured in headcrabs. Prepare to be prodded once I have some time to outline what I'd want you prodded for.

Alright bobdog, if you're still up for contributing, I would be happy to have some writing. What do you think of this idea:

Many popular comic magazines used to include a short prose story at the end of the main story to add some backstory to what had just been read. A good example is the original issues of Watchmen, which contained fictional book excerpts and magazine articles to give some depth to what you'd just read. (If anyone hasn't read Watchmen and wants to see an example, here's a copy of the first issue of Watchmen from the DC Comics website http://www.dccomics.com/media/excerpts/1462_1.pdf.) What I think we could do is include something similar, like for example, a 1-2 page Diary of a Resistance member, or anything else that would apply to the HL2/Ravenholm/WIR backstory.

If you like the idea, let me know. Of course, if you're leaning more in the direction of a review-ish piece, a quick intro might be good too. I'm not picky. :smoking:

I like the diary idea, and I think we could get a lot of our "artists" here to contribute their own thoughts -- Lord knows there's enough crazy here to do some funny stuff!!
