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 personality traits that, as it happens, are genetic. After not seeing each other at all for the first 21 years we were on the planet at the same time, we have a surprising amount of habits and speech patterns in common that were not picked up from our respective parents (neither of us grew up around our shared biological parent). Most people can tell that we’re siblings by just watching how we interact with each other in a conversation at the dinner table, which we find interesting considering that if you put all the time we’ve spent together back to back our WHOLE LIVES, it’s just under a month… And that’s not one on one quality time either, that’s time we’ve been in the same city.
Anyways, this comic is a little shout out to all the times we’ve heard, “oh wow! Ash/Steve does that too!” from friends and family.
PS: This comic also applies to our other 2 brothers (Sean and Bob) whom we did not grow up around and had different families to pick up traits from. It’s good to know you can miss the first 20 years of getting to know one another, and still sit down with them like you’ve been around them your whole life. <3

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

Once again, I’m going to throw up a bit of a disclaimer on this comic. I am by no means trying to speak for ALL women here. I do not believe every single girl is catty enough to think evil thoughts about their friends when they get a pretty dress/ lose some weight/ get a

This comic is pretty self-explanatory. I wanted to do a comic about going to see the new Batman movie but I didn’t really have any funny stories surrounding it. This situation happened to me years back when I was trying to hint to a friend of mine that I wanted to go see the Hulk

Steve’s comments: 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

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

Happy Canada Day, everyone! ***before you mention it, I am aware that there is a spelling error on the word “fourth” I am not in town right now and don’t yet have access to the master file, but it WILL be changed soon.*** This comic didn’t really happen per se… I was actually originally discussing

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

So, before you post anything about this comic, please take note: I have many friends who live in Los Angeles and not a one of them is a hockey fan. As a Canadian I found it strange to live in a city with an NHL team and not want to go see them play or
