Look, clearly, I’m not getting back to this comic. For all intents and purposes, Premise Beach is done. I’ve loved doing it, and I still love these characters very much, but it ain’t coming back. If you’re looking for more comics of mine to read, though, there’s always Ski Ninjas, which I started as a thing on the side while doing this comic, and which I know update five days a week. I like it, so that’s something.
Thanks to everyone for reading the comic. I hope to get back to these characters some day, but for now, y’know, the end!
You may have noticed that there was no comic yesterday, and I’m sorry to say it, but unless I have a sudden four hour creative burst in the next few hours, there likely won’t be a comic on Thursday. I don’t want to make excuses, so I won’t. I know how much it sucks when you go to a website hungry for an update, and there’s no new content.
I’ll do my best to work ahead in the next few days, get a few in the buffer, to ensure that this won’t happen again any time soon. I’ve been working without a buffer for so long on, I’ve just gotten used to it, but that’s no way to make comics. Hell, with Ski Ninjas, my other comic, which updates twice a week, I’ve normally got a month worth of strips in my buffer.
So, while you’re waiting for me to get back to making comics that I put some artistic effort into, why not check out the lazy, I’ve-been-told-it’s-much-funnier comic?
See you folks on Tuesday!
So, that’s essentially the story for now! Just like in real life, these sorts of things don’t sort themselves out overnight, right? Plus, wouldn’t we all like to see some one-off joke comics? I mean, there’s always Ski Ninjas for that, but it’s just not the same. I want to make with the ha-has in this comic.
I’ll get back to the story in due time, for those of you that are going to be angry that I’m leaving even more things hanging, but let’s take it easy and flesh out some of this ever-increasing cast. Maybe I’ll even add a boy, next. An honest-to-goodness boy. Remember when this comic had boys?
I’ve had a few people (ie: neeeeeeeerds) ask me how closely I’m going to adhere to the whole Death and Return of Superman story arc that I’m currently parodying. The answer to that, my dears, is that I’m not entirely sure, but probably not too closely. I mean, I’ve got all of the characters’ motivations and alliances mapped out, but I’m going to be throwing in a lot of sight gags that relate to the source material. For instance, Toast City will burn, I can assure you.
On the other hand, I don’t imagine that Yvette’s going to die, and then come back in a badass black outfit. Heck, I’m not even sure what character is supposed to be Superman in this. In the end, I want the story to stand on its own merits, without having to rely on inside jokes.
It’s been a slow start, but now that we’ve introduced all of the players, things are going to be picking up, so thanks for indulging me.
2011: The year where a bunch of ladies fight and stuff.
So, to commemorate me making Premise Beach for 1826 of your human days, I recently sat down with my once-and-never boss, the Editor in Chief of the Lakehead University Argus to be the first interviewee in the paper’s new feature Decanter Banter (I came up with that name, too! Dibs! Mine!).
The idea behind the interview, which I think is genius, is that both the interviewer and interviewee drink as the interview progresses. The whole thing only lasted about an hour, as we were working under a deadline, but let me tell you, there was noticeable slurring, wobbling, and too much physical contact on someone’s part that wasn’t me.
Wait, that didn’t come out right.
It was an honour to have such a giant interview in The Argus, I’ve gotta say. They published my very first Premise Beach, so in a way, everything you see here is its fault.
