Eat the 87 degrees That's my sister Amanda (who I often times sent these comics to before I started putting them on SJ) I'm talking to on ICQ. You probably don't get why I sent that message; I was responding to a message she sent that said "It's 87 degrees in this room. Yuck."

Added after second revamp to explain whole comic Once-- ****ONCE**** is the key word here-- this was a screenshot-based comic about Windows error messages, Neopets, and ICQ. Though most of the jokes were just text written on them with no actual comic, I made actual Neopets fancomics as the jokes for some. Eventually, non-Neopets characters appeared as well, and it ended up with each strip being screenshot(s) and/or actual comic. The turning point came when I threw in Dido for no reason, and the other turning point came when I threw in Enya for no reason, as those ended up influencing the main plot I finally decided on later (them hating each other, the other characters taking sides). Yes, those aren't the most popular celebrities, but I'm trying to make an original comic, y'know? Anyways, all that time, it was never a webcomic; I just sent the comics to my sisters and a friend of one of my sisters via ICQ. It was also horribly done, but still made a little sense because I hadn't rejected anything. In fact, I've considered uploading the original style as a separate comic once Dido or Enya is finally defeated in this comic.
After 456 strips, I finally decided to make it a webcomic, but there was one catch: I had to delete a few strips that were...weird...and very hard to explain. Stuff like Neopian faeries randomly getting fat. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?! Anyways, once I deleted those, some of the rest ended up making less sense, due to the deleted strips being referenced in those. Eventually, the black hole of deletion left only 50 strips. I revamped those and uploaded them, then added about five or six regular updates. I kind of found it strange that the only REAL fans I had were the original fans and SirLarr, but I never knew why until people told me what they didn't like about the comic: half the strips made no sense, despite the fact that I explained a bunch of stuff in the author comments. So, there are now only 11 strips of the original version (revamped again); then two of the regular updates before The Criticizing (one was revamped, one I couldn't since it's in Kingdom of Loathing style), then since none of those actually have anything to do with the new plot, I made a new strip to introduce that. Anything after that is a new regular update. Or, to make things simpler, you should only hate the comic if the strips that have the current logo on them usually make no sense. And when I think about how many strips I've rejected, Princess Rosalina (from Super Mario Galaxy, in case you didn't know) seems extremely cheerful compared to me, so I can only hope all that trouble was worth it...
Also, don't take this to mean "skip to comic 14". Some people might like the old ones (my friends do), so you might want to read those, but if you don't like them, don't hate the whole comic.

Has Amanda seen these yet??

The MattsterMaster says...

No, Amanda hasn't seen them yet. She wouldn't mind if these are up since she liked them in the original version, and if she doesn't like one, I can still get rid of it

The ellaina says...

lol ok so maybe i should change my icq info :P

The MattsterMaster says...

Um, I didn't say anything about your ICQ info.

The pathvain_aelien says...

It looks very spiffy!

The MattsterMaster says...

To not confuse later generations: "It looks very spiffy" was posted during the second revamp.
