I had forgotten this one, so when I re-read it I actually laughed. That was pretty fun.
So ends the great pants mystery. I was really happy that Shawn went with the leather briefs. The retroactively make all of Chuck’s complaints about Sapphire so much more absurdly hypocritical.
The armored codpiece on this one is what really makes it for me. What’s funny is when this ran originally, we had a number of comments from readers of “Ah! My eyes!” But no one ever really complained about either Jade or Sapphire’s outfits. I’m hoping there’s at least one hairy barbarian fan out there who we made happy with this strip. ;)
Games and the Fear of Death
Why killing you might be the least scary thing a game can do.
The Witch Watch
My first REAL published book, about a guy who comes back from the dead due to a misunderstanding.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
There's a wonderful way to balance difficulty in RPGs, and designers try to prevent it. For some reason.
This is a massive step down in story, gameplay, and art design when compared to the 2014 soft reboot. Yet critics rated this one much higher. What's going on here?
