I wrote today’s comic about Pocket Planes, which I’ve lately been playing on my iPhone. It’s an addictive little game that has a great concept but has some very fundamental flaws. Many of these flaws have to do with the game’s bizarre economy and monotonous gameplay. But one gripe I have is that the plane and airport system is so unrealistic. This strip airs one of my major complaints with the game, that medium-sized propeller planes can’t land at airports in the game that accommodate mother freaking jetliners in the real world. It’s so strange and annoying and insulting to those cities that I got frustrated enough to delete the game. Then I got sucked back into it by some friends at Child’s Play Charity and Loading Ready Run. Sigh. By the way, LRR did their own hilarious video send-up of Pocket Planes, which you should totally check out as well.

Steve writes: Yep, it’s true, I really did back the Veronica Mars Kickstarter at the top tier, and I really do get a speaking role in the movie. This comic is making fun of the fact that some media outlets seemed to have the impression that I’m “not a fan”, which is 100% untrue. All

Steve’s comments: I came up with this idea at a dinner out with my wife. It literally fell from the sky into my mind like a hot stream of delicious gravy. All night, I couldn’t stop chuckling. When I got home I immediately sent the script to Ash. Seriously, how cool would a gravy satellite

Steve and I very much wanted to do a comic about the recent KISS concert we went to (also HOLY CRAP STEVE TOOK ME TO SEE KISS!!!) but nothing comically funny happened while we were there… well nothing that fit into a 4 panel comic, so we made up this one because we had been

This comic didn’t really happen. I have been meaning to write something to this effect for some time, but it never quite fell in to place until now. Steve and I have a LOT of differences in our personalities and tastes (and he’s also much, much smarter than I am) but there are some core

Today’s comic is another one drawn by guest artist Zack Finfrock. It’s about… well, you can probably guess what it’s about.

There isn’t much to say about this comic, it’s another strip based off of a real conversation between Steve and I. He did run over a nail a week or two back and we had a conversation over text that was very similar to this one (I think it may have ended with “well that

This comic was conceived by Steve in one of his brilliant “pun” moments he’s become so famous for. To be honest, I’m surprised this movie doesn’t already exist… it seems like a pretty logical step next step in the horror movie genre. Also, I am not sure my opinions are accurately represented here, because if

Steve’s comments: Today’s comic features Bonnie Burton of grrl.com, who got me hooked on self-adhesive Googly eyes. You can buy them from a number of sources, such as Archie McPhee. You can stick them on almost anything and it makes stuff look hilarious. We have a photo gallery that we’re just getting going, but Bonnie

This comic was a duel-writing effort between Steve and me, and it has a very special guest star… wait for it… H.B. Duran! or as her twitter followers know her, @ggAngelThanatos! for those of you who don’t know her, she’s a lead editor for GirlGamer.com. I also have it on good authority that she’s pretty

This comic is based off a true story (though I never threw my drink at Steve). A few months back I was impatiently awaiting the release of Batman: Arkham City for PS3 when I realized I couldn’t actually afford the $70 to buy the game. I decided that with the 3 weeks I had left,
