The System Guest Comic: Steve Napierski

Thanks to my good friend Steve “Dueling Analogs” Napierski for the guest comic:

Hope you like it. I’ve actually done this before and gotten away with it. Just not from the toilet, of course.

I’ve done this before too, though not with moving a logo. With changing colors, with resizing fonts, but mostly just saying I’ll turn down the music / TV. How about you?

A little more on Steve: He does a funny comic about video games, as well as (in my opinion) an even funnier comic that needs to be seen to be described called Omake Theater. I did a guest comic for him a while back that got him tons of press. Let’s hope this does the same so he can stop owing me so bad (just kidding Steve, we’re cool).

By the way! Be sure to check out the new Venn F%*king Diagrams shirt which is now for sale in the HilariAwesome.com store! It’s for sale-for sale, meaning it’s at a lower preorder price if you act now, because that way I get to know how many people want them and you get them for less. You probably should »

The System 400: What Else We’ve Learned

Welcome to comic #400, and the 2-year anniversary of The System! I know what you’re saying, comic #1 was posted July 1st. True, but it went live somewhere around July 8th and y’know what? Close enough.

Since then we’ve seen lots of changes to the site, from some recurring characters to comics that have been across the internet and back (with varying amounts of credit thrown my way). I could not have made it this far if not for the help of my many friends (both those with websites and without) and fans who have encouraged and supported this project along the way.

Over the next few weeks you will start seeing some improvements around here, as some new personal opportunities have come up that will allow for some more time and effort to be put on the comic and its various accoutrement. If you’re a fan of the site and would like to do your part, check out the online store and consider supporting the comic and taking something home while you’re at it. If you don’t see something you like don’t worry, preorder for BOOK 1 of The System will be going up soon along with other pieces of amazingness.

For those of you less monetarily inclined but with plenty of free time, it always helps when you share comics on StumbleUpon, Reddit, forums, blogs, BoingBoing or any other sites you frequent. Or for that matter just participating around here by commenting on posts and talking back as I use this site (and Twitter, and Tumblr) to talk at you. I know RossMom always appreciates it, and at this point I think we can pretty much call her a moderator. And yeah, that’s my mom.

Also upcoming, I’m going to start posting a bit of a retrospective on how The System is doing in an effort to show you guys what goes on behind the scenes and also get some thoughts out. Posts about how I’ve gotten this far (if you call this far) and what I’ve learned along the way. For those who like that kind of inside baseball I think you’ll appreciate them. For those that don’t, well, there’s always the comic.

Speaking of the comic, can you pick out where all the panels are from? The art is all from previous comics starting between comic #304 and #399. See what you can do and post it in the comments!

The System 358: Dumb Phones

Sometimes I think a dumb phone would be better than a smart phone. No girlfriends calling you to look up addresses, nobody expecting you got that thing they sent you…

The System 343: How’s My Driving?

I know there was no comic Monday or even last Friday, so I’ll be spending the rest of the week trying to catch up to the schedule. Stick with me, Systemics. Big things are on the horizon.

Btw if you like this and are looking for some cycling revenge, you may want to check out the Bike Sniper shirt from our store, HilariAwesome.

The System 303: What We’ve Learned Lately

Here is that recap I promised, in the same vein as #100 and #200.  As I said in the post on #300, thank you all for reading, commenting, sending in System in the Wild posts, and doing all the little things you do to support The System.  I notice.

Remember, this, along with all comics, can be purchased as a comic print through HilariAwesome.com! This one comes out to a Super A3/B print (13″ x 19″ paper for all you laymen) that is high quality poster awesomeness.  It may be way bigger than the normal comic, but it’s still the same $10 at HilariAwesome.com!

UPDATE: Systemic Lextrical put together a little “magic bean”, a piece of music based upon this comic. Here it is!
