Reviving Chainmail Bikini has been an interesting project. The webcomic Shawn Gaston and I made in 2007 went poof, and for a while I thought it was gone for good.
But Shawn had some of the source images. I had others. The internet archive had the titles & accompanying text for the first 39 comics or so. Now we’re discovering that a few wily users had actually saved some of the bonus content to their own computers, and were able to help us recover those. This morning, I got to see Chuck’s Random Encounter Table for the first time in over two years. I’d forgotten nearly everything on the chart, and so I got to laugh at a couple of my own jokes. Man, being forgetful has its advantages.
Reading through the old strips has jostled my memory quite a bit, and I think I actually have a decent chance at reconstructing the write-up of the ending. I have until late January to iron it all out. Here’s hoping.
Seventeen of the strips have been posted so far, so if you’ve never read it, now would be a good time to start.
The product of fandom run unchecked, this novel began as a short story and grew into something of a cult hit.
The Plot-Driven Door
You know how videogames sometimes do that thing where it's preposterously hard to go through a simple door? This one is really bad.
The story of me. If you're looking for a picture of what it was like growing up in the seventies, then this is for you.
Skylines of the Future
Cities: Skylines is bound to have a sequel sooner or later. Where can this series go next, and what changes would I like to see?
Two minutes of fun at the expense of a badly-run theme park.
