Oh dear lord… is he still on about the movie?
Alt text: Sorry Joey, it doesn’t work like the Neverending Story just because you don’t stop.
80 friggin pages e.e
Correction: 80 friggin chapters
u my friend are amasing
Meh, I’ve seen worse. The fact that I’ve browsed fanfiction enough -to- have seen worse is an indicator of my obsession.
It could always be ‘James Patterson’ chapters which take about 10 seconds to write and half that to read. Half THAT and you have the number of pages. Then again, this IS Joey we’re dealing with here.
Silly Faux, that was Lester. :3
Thats what it looks like
Wait what? I’m slow again, what movie is it? I just can’t make heads or tails from these type of texts. XD
See September 24th, 2010 for the movie people think it is
See August 26th, 2009 for the movie that it actually is
Hmmm okay I know what ya mean, but I don’ get how does it connect here? Those were two totally different movies… or what were ya trying to say again? O_o”
Zander’s strip OH YEAH!
*breaks through solid concrete wall*
*Piece of concrete lands on Xbox* NOOOO! I WAS ABOUT TO GET THE NUKE!
Play a real game. c.c
Relax, I play far more game than just CoD.
What? Xbox? More than CoD!? Is that even possible!?
CoD > TF2, Get a PC, let’s not discuss consoles here tho kk?
The comment section is not the place for this.
TF2 is ace I renamed my sandman “Wife beater”
Oh I;m sorry, I meant CoD < TF2, but lets stop so the mod no mad
Ah, got it after reading the alt text. Nicely done.
His story just keeps going and going.
Guest week!!!!! =D
And it seems that the crossover wars have begun once again…
Hahaha. Also I really like how Zander drew Joey.
(I was going to do a guest comic but couldn’t think of anything. I am a sad panda.)
I was going to do a guest comic, but I forgot what it was going to be about, then I remembered what it was going to be about, but then I remembered I couldn’t draw, then I got distracted by an eye floater and forgot about it entirely.
I didn’t get a round tuit.
I didn’ even know it’s gonna be a guest week. I WIN… or lose? O_o”
Dunno. I’m so used to seeing him with four fingers, he looks wierd with five.
Kat? Is that you? It’s me, foxie!
I sometimes spend some time writing a story, but not 80 chapters in one sitting!
how do you know it was only one?
Because of the alternate text:
Sorry Joey, it doesn’t work like the Neverending Story just because you don’t stop.
Babylon gardens is now in what joey is typing. It is panel 3 at the very bottom
Sharp eyes, I couldn’t see the text through with these cut sentences and all.
Aaaand here we go again! Can’t wait till you’re back from vacation and all…
That’s what everyone said when Rick switched to the new style in which he drew Housepets.
But it’s still the same person, only a modified style that takes getting used to. As for guest art, 90% usually sucks in comparison. That’s to say, only a few people can come close to the fans’ expectations either with close to the original art or a very good “fan art” that seems to work for them. Let’s face it, these outsiders can’t match the original (given that the original is of average to moderate quality)
Be polite or be silent.
I thought he was merely quoting Sturgeon’s Revelation
is he still complaining about the movie
el el adorable Joe!!!!!! ….. y sigue con eso de la pelicula -_-…..
He said you need to learn another language
….i dont say dat…… yo dije…:
Joe the adorable !!!!!! … .. and continues with that about of the movie-_-… ..
a new wolrd in other languaje….:
Pelicula = movie
A better translation would be “he’s still going on about the movie”
Also, world = mundo
Word = palabra
my fault….. and thanks….
(go to google traductor)
adivinen de que pais soy
wait a second …. yes i want to say:
Otro mundo en otro idioma!!!!!!!…. but thas not the point!!!!! ok
Pa mi que eres Peruano o algo asi. (Chileno)
aperson said: PA my you’re Peruvian or something like this.
….no….. no soi peruano…. soy panameño
OH GOD MAKE IT STOP!
no …. joe is unestopable…. wee need some wepons… lots of weapons to stop them
I can imagine him going on for days writing that.
Ya it is. Since he only exists in this comic strip he doesnt really exist and can thus do anything.
Whoo, Zander got his comic!
Looks like he is good drawing…
I suck at drawing -.-”
Wall of text.
Reminds me of when English/History teachers would say ‘just keep writing until the time’s up.’
The only problem I had with that is that I suck at B.S.ing to write papers
poor poor fanboy!
holy cow. 80 pages? Joey…you need a new hobby.
naa he is fine…. tell other tings them he can do for example…. ?…. see nothing he is fine in his place
Writing books is a bad hobby?.. You, sir, are silly.
no, he doesnt need to REPLACE this hobby, he just needs other hobbies so he’s not shut up in the computer room writing fanfic all day
this is somehow very recognizable,
witch scares me,.
Don’t mess with the witch…
Also, I see that too…
Um… are all the guest strips going to have alt text?
Why not? I’m just not sure if Rick’s giving the alt texts to the comics himself, or if the artists of the guest comics provide them themselves…
The original artists would be the more logical choice I’d say, but Rick can come up with good ones as well so that may be right as well.
What program is he using? o_o
He’s probably typing straight into a website submission system.
I created the “website” from scratch, because if I used a screenshot from a real website, then it would probably be copyright infringing or something -_-
He just doesn’t let go :X
I like the way joey looks, y’know, that “I Haven’t slept in 4 days” look
Also the spiked hair
i really have to say that while i understood this *after i read the comments* the comic itself is too jumbled and overloaded with text to smoothly convey the gag. maybe rather than making the words the central focus of the panel and instead centering the chapter number it would have been more readily conveyed. it’s not BAD, it’s just really amatuerish… keep in mind the human eye is lazy. if you want to make a visual gag with WORDS, you have only a few seconds of the eye’s attention searching for the ‘funny’ words. in this comic’s case, the chapter number is steamrolled by the wall of confusing tangently coherant text below it. i found myself reading that, looking for the joke, feeling frustrated that it cut off…and not even seeing the chapter number.
all in all a really good shot at a comic, but next time zander – think about the lazy human eye and remember to CENTER your gag in the middle of the panel if it’s one that relies on noticing a tiny detail like that!
I think the point of the first 3 panels is to show that Joey is writing a wall of text, kinda like you just did, not to actually be read
If we’ve reached an era where two paragraphs is a “wall of text” it’s no wonder atrocious slop like “Twilight” is so popular…
Thx, NOW I won’t be able to stop thinking about the move for SURE. XD
Sorry, Rick; I procrastinated too long to meet your deadline.
Say, did Zander choose the hovertext, or did you?
…..I don’t get it……
It’s not deep. Joey is writing a really really long fanfic. That’s the joke.
Okay, let’s back up a bit. Did you get this one?
Yes I did…
That strip was before I started reading!..
Wow, Zander’s comic is posted. “Imagine that”
80 chapters? Wow, he kicks my tail! I’m only up to 30 (I think)!
maybe he was goin ti make 3 boocks
If he is typing, then where is the keyboard??
it’s … wow. you’re right. ZANDER! how could you have missed that?!?!?!
Laziness for the win.
How long did it take you to do this?
It’s the gray area. He didn’t draw in the lines.
STILL NO PANEL 8 GRAPE!
i like the reffence to The Neverending Story. now if yu excuse me. *dancing to the Neverending story theme song*
That’s an awesome song and I can’t get it out of my head now, thx alot. (But Wolf will never dance!!! :p) XD
what website is that lol!
A dog writin’ a Pridlands fanfic. Nice! XD
He’s a dog who dresses as a cat from time to time and even buys the prideland books on site. XD
Someone needs to introduce him to The Secret of NIMH.
i would expect him to be writing “saucy fan fiction” actually.
So, just wondering: is “Bino” pronounced “BEE-no,” “BYE-no,” or “BIH-no?” Because I’ve been thinking it’s the first one, but I just want to be sure.
This was asked before (couldn’t point you exactly to when). Rick said it was “BYE-no”
Of course, that’s not Bino, that’s Joey
Right…the “J” on the collar should have tipped me off. Anyway, thanks.
I like the new art style… if that is one
Just read the guest comic portion… silly sirus
Guest comics and fan arts are always wierd for me, but they show how much ppl can love something right?
BTW I can imagine Joey doing that and that’s the first time I don’ think it’s sad. I just love this lil rascal too much to be mean to him. X3
Joey looks a bit… well, cracked, in this page. I like Joey’s happy face.
