Happy Belated

Posted by Wes Decker on April 21, 2009

Well, here we are. It’s been a whole year. More than that, in fact, as our official one year mark was last week. So, sorry about the late comic in both that regard, and also in the sense that this is Tuesday. Oh well. I think I’ll survive. Will you?

Wow. One year. A year of doing this. Granted, we haven’t pumped out a new comic every week, but still. It’s more work than you’d think. And I have the easy part! Artista does all the work. She even goes so far as to make strips visually funny when my writing more or less sucks, which is more often than I’d like, but c’est la vie. I think my writing has improved over the past year, and Artista’s art has gone from wonderful to +1 enchanted wonderful or something. Point is, she’s talented, and if you agree with me, leave a comment here for her, or check out her art blog things. I’d also like to send shout outs to Wednesday and Switzerland, who are here to step in when I fail in the bloggering. Switz was kind enough to toss up some filler words yesterday while we were waiting for our anniversarial comic. In the realm of filling in, sometimes both Artista and I have, you know, lives (OR NOT LOL), and fail to get something written or drawn each week. That’s where Cassie has tended to step in. She likes to send me her doodles and whatnot, so of course I slap them up on my website and take all the credit for them. Just kidding. I only take half.

We’ve come a long way. The site is looking cleaner and better than ever. I’m really happy with our current layout and design. However, we’re not entirely where we wanted to be a year in (no shirts, no domain, no money), but that’s really okay. We decided long ago that we would write, draw, produce, and support a Roget’s House of Mystery comic for as long as it remained fun for us, and no longer. The fact that our ADD-addled minds have stuck with this for a full year is remarkable, in my opinion.

So, here’s to another year for both the fictional and actual gangs from the House that would be called Roget’s.

May the Force be with you.

Peculiar thing about this document, it was never notarized,

Ever Dance With The Devil In The Pale Moonlight?

Posted by Wes Decker on July 21, 2008

Late comic can be blamed on Artista, who was too busy with ‘life’ this weekend to draw. *bitter grumbles* Just kidding? I love ya, Arty?

Anyway. Go see The Dark Knight. This is not optional. It is imperative. Knowing my friends and our readers, most of you already have. Go see it again. It’s just that good. Clearly it is, as I am still in shock and awe; so much so that I couldn’t even write a comic for this week. I do, however, like what we’ve got for you. If you couldn’t tell, we here at RHoM like the villians better than the heroes. Besides, if we did the heroes, one of them would end up being Robin. I enjoy the concept of dressing the characters up in costumes, so expect to see more of that. I like to give Artista challenges, too. Yay.

I think this strip marks the first time the whole Household (plus Gene) appears in a strip together. Clearly this is cause for celebration. Everyone break out your party hats and streamers. It’s gonna be a wild night. See you kids next week.

I’m a dog chasing cars,

PS omg.
PPS If you missed out on for free, I am truly sorry. Go be a good little fanboy/girl and give Joss Whedon your four dollars on iTunes so you can watch it. This is even more imperative than seeing The Dark Knight, and it’s a good deal cheaper!

Meddling Kids

Posted by Wes Decker on May 4, 2008

This is almost an exact transcription of the internal dialogue I had with myself while deciding what to wear to see Iron Man opening day. Big surprise that one of the few times I fret about my outfit is when I go to see a comic book movie.

And what an incredible comic book movie it was. By far one of the best so far. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it, for fans and non-fans alike. For you Marvel fans, make sure you stay for after the credits. It’s worth it. All of us here at RHoM enjoyed it thoroughly.

Make sure you definitely click to enlarge this week, as the comic is now bigger and better! New and improved! Lowers cholesterol! Tastes great! Et cetera. We experimented with panel sizes versus speech bubbles sizes, and I think we’ve found something that will work well. We’re still falling into our groove, so to speak, so that means we’ll only get better with time! Like a fine wine, or cheese. Or your mom. Heeeyy-ooooo!

I always think of all these great things to talk about in the blog during the week, and promptly blank as soon as I sit down to post. So, I apologize for my babble-vomit. Anyway, enjoy the comic, leave us comments, join the Facebook group, visit our links below, read through the “archives”, and be excellent to each other. See y’all next week.

That’s how dad did it, that’s how America does it, and it’s worked out pretty good so far,

Phoenix

PS Seriously, go see Iron Man.
