First off, some history: last May, the Kickstarter for Sullivan’s Sluggers launched with a goal of $6,000. An OGN by Mark Andrew Smith — who I only really knew from Amazing Joy Buzzards with Dan Hipp and the two or so issues of Gladstone’s School For World Conquerors I read collected before I…
Welcome to a new project by your pal Rusty! With 1up sadly closing it’s doors, I will be taking the comic/game mergers on the road as a solo act, a new one every month and a half! So please tell your friends, bookmark and follow, retweet/reblog etc, I’d sure appreciate it!
This first one is a reworking of a poster I created for the rad Mikal kHill’s Humbled To Dust tour in 2012. It wasn’t a direct homage before text wise but I really wanted to go back and mod it, so dig! I’ll re-release my 1up ones with some trivia and what-not each week until I am full up and running, so stay plugged in!
Hey everyone! dig on this side project I’m doing

During a Q&A with George Lucas:
Tim’s time finally comes, and it looks like he will be the second to the last question. He approaches the mic and starts his question - or more correctly his explanation. He goes on about how he always felt the strength of the films was in the protagonists, and how thoughts of Luke, Leia, Han and Chewey always helped get him through sad times because they were such fun and life-embracing people (people, not characters). I can’t even paraphrase everything he said, or how his excitement and joy grew with each word, but after a couple of minutes he finally got to the question. “So, basically, my question is to ask what happened to them after Jedi. Did they stay friends? Go on more adventures? Did they ever have kids of their own?”
This whole time George has been sitting in his chair with the table and water at his side on the stage in front of the screen. He doesn’t move or blink during the question, and appears to be giving Tim his rapt attention. After Tim finishes, he looks up for a moment or two in a “pondering” pose, then looks back and slowly says “They died.” He then turns to the other aisle for the final question.
Tim just sort of slowly stood at the mic after that. I couldn’t see his face, but his entire body just sort of slumped. The person in the other aisle just quietly said “I think you answered my question already” and went back to his seat. The theater was pitch quiet, Lucas had turned back to face the center of the theater and took a sip of water, and the professor just sort of slowly walked forward and said “If there are no more questions, lets take our break and start the film in ten minutes.”

An alteration to Ricky Thunder for publication.
Ricky Thunder was started two years ago and I definitely rushed a few things and some of it just annoys me. While preparing it for print here in the near future I changed a couple of things. This was one bit that always bothered me.
Overall I’ve made very few changes: I took out most of the profanity, re-wrote the “alien rape” monologue to be less awful, added a page to make it fit, cut two pages altogether that were unnecessary and I despised and redrew some things very subtle-y. Actually it sounds like a lot but it’s really not.
That Kickstarter is coming real soon, bros. Save your pennies!
