Oh. It's you. It's been a long time. How have you been? I've been really busy being dead. You know... after you murdered me.Strangely fitting quote aside, it has indeed been quite a while. Welcome back.-----------------------------------Posted ImageWelcome to my Comic Emporium.I've been around for quite a while. My 5 year Olmak certainly says something about that, at least. I've had ups and downs, disagreements, good comics and bad. I've been part of two continuities and a group. But I've made tons of friends, and for that, I am greatful.So I present to you the fruits of my labour.My comics.-----------------------------------Posted ImageRecently I've been looking at the past. And I miss some aspects, while I detest others. Wouldn't it be great to just have a silly series again? One that isn't all plot, or silence, or in a different language, or with unoriginal characters, or a choose-your-own-adventure series.Let me tell you this.I made this.Again.A spiritual sequel to one of my former series, IIMT revolves around the antics of one matoran named Tapika, trying to become a comic maker in a strange society on the island of Taone Nui. This series is part of the ICC, and follows on from the events of Private Eye Tapika.-----------------------------------Archivial TopicCompendium One - IntroductionCompendium Two - VillainDarcsyde's BirthdayGavla's BirthdayNot all comics are available via the front page as of yet! They have and will be posted in the topic weekly. More compendiums will be available as soon as enough have been released.-----------------------------------Posted ImageWelcome to the stable orbit of Solarius...As an unwilling Traveller she seeks refuge among the stars. But as she approaches a lone star in a near empty region of space, the star once known as Solarius erupts in a massive display of light. As she comes to terms with both past and future she uncovers an unravelling mystery, the sheer scale of which almost uncomprehensible...-----------------------------------1. Antecedent1. Supernova2.

Glad to see these return, they make me smile. Something I enjoy from good comics. Well done getting the topic back up, and excellent opening quote. I still enjoy reading my birthday comic, chah.

I've been meaning to ask you - have you had anything to do with the creation of Homestuck? Being that the comics are in that fashion?

You portray Gerliky's character so well. And like I told Kahi, good vocab makes a good comic. I love it! And Gerk is definitely talking to me. :P

Hah, thanks you guys! Didn't think this topic would pick up steam this quickly. Although I am sadly announcing that there will only be one comic a week from now. I can't put 2 comics up a week, or I'll keep on exhausting my supply and having to keep on going on hiatus! And if I go on hiatus now, I may never kickstart again... Also, funfact: I deliberately trawled through Google Images to get that laptop in the comic because it was the laptop I had. However, I just realised that that comic was no longer topical - I have an entirely different laptop now! :P

The Gurk comic was hilarious. I don't know him very well but it seemed quite appropriate. :D Once a week is fine by me, since you've got quite the high level of graphic quality going into these. :pirate:

Yeah, I try to put a high level of graphical quality into these. Sort of a crossbreed between Kahi's and Ennar's. (speaking of which, where is he anyways?) (also shh gavla + janabro pretend you haven't seen these yet its all supposed to be a SUSPRIIISE)

Wow, Tapika, I enjoyed reading that comic, which by the way is most definitely brand new, for the very first time.Yeah, that's definitely Gerlicky. He's kind of blunt. I did do quite enjoy the "seething with the angries" line.

Exactly what I was thinking. Either that or some horrible fake kit.And props on the Gerlicky 1.08 joke. Considering he invented 3- and 6-shading, I always laugh when I remember he uses black outline. J-K out.

Advertisment is key to keeping the buisness going round. That said - Can you mirror my tactic, please? With delicious in-canon advertisment please? :P Also yeah it is kind of strange how he uses Bishade when he invented Hexashade. He always says it's a hassle though. I guess.

It's like if Thomas Edison used whale oil lamps instead of the lightbulb. I lol'd at the first comic. Especially the whiteboard with the perks of ICC-ness. And I agree with Shad about the mystery kit.

You guys are aware that more shades doesn't automatically make a kit better, right? Chimoru is a very flawed kit no matter what; having six shades just makes it shinier and harder to recolor. Gurky was clearly going for a simplistic visual style with Spoofquest, so I really don't see what's so strange about him using bishade. :mellow:

Posted ImageSeems my post that was dripping with compliments was deleted. Shame. Since I didn't back it up all I can say is that I agree with Lime Paradox. That said, I have my assumptions, but in the greater intrests of this community I shall not reveal them.Anyways, this comic has gained an extra level of hilarity for me since its topicality has been brought into question. I made this comic in April, when Portal 2 was released. April. It's now November, and only a few days away from Sonic Generation's UK release. I suppose I could have edited it to show that, but that could have been a bit of a cop out, seeing as the game isn't out yet here.Plus it goes against my mantra, and that mantra is to always fix issues with a comic in a way that requires the least amount of effort.
