I spent a good portion of yesterday doing things most people don’t normally do on Memorial Day. I didn’t barbecue, I didn’t salute a flag, and the best thing I ate was probably a plain tortilla out of a bag. Instead of conforming to the American Way, I decided to start doing my own comic strip. It’s very simple to do and feeds a creative need to tell a story and get it out there for everyone to see. I’ll probably do a few every week since they’re real simple to do and I enjoy them. Ignore the extra space since I’m cropping these in Paint so you don’t have to click a thousand links. The serious is called Held Back, based partially on something else I wrote but not really.

As already stated, I’ll post anything new I create up on here every so often. For access to the website or to be current and see them before anyone else you can visit my profile and have at it.

    Look forward to reading them later, but, one question…how is it simple and to do a few a week? Doesn’t it take ages to draw them?

    • Mooselicker says:

      I have really fast hands.

      Look at the bottom for the link to the site I used. Everything’s pre-drawn. It’s less about the artwork and taking the images provided and telling a story with them. You should give it a try. It’s fun.

      • joehoover says:

        Aaah, I thought it may be. I was thinking of something as Buzzfeed listed the best internet comics yesterday, and thought there must be a comic creator somewhere. That’s as far as I got as I never had any ideas after that

      • Mooselicker says:

        I actually find it easy to come up with ideas once you see the different scenes available and props. I guess it’s like Who’s Line Is It Anyway when they give them the weird props.

  2. Awesome… you really are getting weirder… and more creative and artsy… this is going to make you gay, but you will hate yourself for it.

  3. Addie says:

    Series, not serious–this strip doesn’t have a serious line in it. See how I tried to make a joke?

    Okay, it made me grin all the way through, and that’s a good thing, right?

  4. Pen says:

    That is some freaky squatting the comic creator has them do for sitting.

  5. You are one seriously disturbed dude. So, when is your next batch of comics coming out?

  6. calahan says:

    I laughed the most at Guess Who I Am and the babysitting ones. Ha. Not sure if that info’s helpful, but thought I’d share.

  7. I’m almost speechless, but I’m laughing. Guy on the toilet with his pants on – hahaha!

  8. Pete Howorth says:

    Pretty funny Timmo, you’re certainly a man of many trades 😀 I may have a go at this myself and see how offensive a comic I can create!

    • Mooselicker says:

      Make sure you make copies. They seem pretty serious about not doing anything too offensive. Or you can purposefully see how offensive you can make them and then get banned. Hey, both are badass.

  9. Mwahahaha–these are funny!!! I think you’d make a great comic comic writer. Why not try drawing your own characters though? Heh–that would definitely make the whole process longer. But yeah I agree, you should make this feature a regular. Great stuff!

    • Mooselicker says:

      Thanks and I am a TERRIBLE artist. Most importantly, it would take a long time. I would have liked to have been able to design the original characters as this site is a bit limited. Then again, sometimes seeing what they offer helps give ideas.
