And We Have A Winner!

Posted by Wes Decker on June 22, 2008

Congratulations to Unicorn for winning our first ever contest! Here is her winning entry. Enjoy it! Yay!

We’re cleverly using this submitted comic to take a week off and try and get a couple buffer comics sketched as Artista is without a tablet. We’ll be back with regularly scheduled programming next week. See you all then.

Don’t ever hit your mother with a shovel; it’ll leave a dull impression on her mind,


PS We did a guest comic over at Juxtaposition Comics! Check it out!

I Almost Forgot A Title

Posted by Wes Decker on May 18, 2008

Does this even work?

And we’re back!

I’ll start with some important stuff first, so you can get on with your lives quicker. Mentioned briefly in last week’s post was a special activity. Well, we’ve decided to turn that special activity into a full-blown contest. Here’s the official rules:
* Insert your own dialogue into this comic.
* Try to keep it clean, kiddies.
* Email your submission to rhomcomics@gmail.com.
* All entries must be submitted no later than June 21, 2008 11:59pm PST. That gives you about a month.
* We authors will decide on our favorite and award that person with a unique, one-of-a-kind, autographed RHoM tshirt! Shiny!
*No, Wednesday, you can’t enter.

So get those creative juices flowin’ and let’s see what you’ve got!

How’d you like the art this week? Pretty snazzy, eh? We might just have to invest in a tablet of our own once Artista gives Ginger this one back. We’ve got big plans for the future, folks.

This week’s comic in particular has shown me the importance of compromise and collaboration in a project like this. When I first read the script idea, I wasn’t a big fan. I thought it was silly. But, it’s not my comic, it’s ours, so the draft was finalized and the art was drawn. Seeing it here in it’s completed form, I realize a few things. First, my opinion counts for close to goram nothing, but most of you knew that already. Second, trust in my partners. They do good work, and they won’t let me, or you, down. Third, sometimes the ‘best’ scripts make the ‘worst’ comics, and vice versa. Basically, it doesn’t even matter. This is a collaboration, first and foremost, and my initial reaction was manly and impulsive. This week’s is a fantastic comic. And I had nothing to do with it’s writing or arting. So, there. Enough of that.

Finals week for me. Putting the comic and blog up early so I can sleep. Enjoy the comic, everyone. See you next week. In the mean time, enter the contest, leave us comments, visit the blogroll, and go see Indiana Jones.

Also, je suis un bear. That is all.

So long, Lao Che,


PS You really want to win this contest. Trust me.
