The System 426: Copter Trouble

I’m posting this from the stage of The Ottobar, where my parents (Rossmom and Rossdad as they are known) just went up to MC Frontalot and asked if he read my comic. He was confused.

The System: Future World Problems – The Human Element

This is from a series of comics by my fellow webcomic creators and the creme de la creme of visual entries to the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned the other day. If you like this charming entry, check out the original post with FutureWorldProblems here, or the first comic on the subject here.

Today’s comic was done by the amazing Michael Lalonde of Orneryboy. I’ve been reading his stuff for years, it’s worth your time. I remember finding Orneryboy back in 2005, and loving the art style as being something very different than what I was used to seeing. I’ve been keeping up with it ever since. It’s the story of a boy named Ornery, his girlfriend Dirtygirl, and their pet zombie Brian and a pet cat all going through insane adventures. I’m pretty sure the whole thing is laid out in Flash because every once in a while pages are animated to give them some great effects. Like this. And this.

About a month ago, I tweeted something or other at Michael and he decided to check out The System, which apparently he liked a bunch and read through the archive. That was very cool of him. There’s nothing more satisfying than finding out that someone whose work you appreciate appreciates yours right back.

Tomorrow finishes up our extended guest comic time with a great one by Bill Ellis, and back to me on Wednesday!

The System 386: What Car Horns Are Really Saying

It’s friday, and I couldn’t be happier. As a note to all, the iPhone does not make a reliable alarm clock. Lesson learned the hard way. Also, two pieces of note:

  • Wednesday’s comic is spawning a shirt! As soon as I finish designing it. Stay tuned here or to HilariAwesome.com (where the shirts live).
  • The Coffee Wins Shirts contest will be posted today! Sorry for the delays, too many good entries!

Oh, and a quick note about readership. When you post comics to Reddit, Digg, forums, BoingBoing or whatever, I  notice. Because it always results in a bump in traffic. I mention this because Wednesday’s comic on biking was posted to Reddit’s biking thread, and is now seeing a nice bump in traffic (that will hopefully translate to some shirt sales, which will hopefully translate to putting more time into the comic) thanks to Straw_Hat on Reddit. So thanks to him and all the others of you who share the comic. It helps, and it saves me from being “that guy” that posts his own comic to places.

This one goes out to those traveling to ROFLcon this weekend (like myself).

The System 357: Bike Rep

Respect and reputation are very important. That’s why I wear my bike sniper shirt as much as my laundry schedule will allow.

Yesterday in DC a car seems to have intentionally run a cyclist off the road. What can bikers do to help show the cars around us whose boss? I want your thoughts! Keep it legal, or if not legal at least creative, and worth breaking the law for.

The System 292: Stop Lights

Ah, stop lights. The great equalizer. Btw, if you like this one you might like the new “Bike Sniper” shirt that is currently preordering! If the sales (or lack thereof) keep up like this, I think I’ll redesign, so get ’em before Monday!

Also, check below for info on Super Art Fight’s recent show with The Protomen, and seeing me this weekend in Philly at GameX!
