Toddler beds are really comfortable. Honestly.
This month marks the third birthday of LUCcomics. Happy Birthday to us!
It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this for three years. In some ways it feels like we just started. For my part, that I feel that am just now getting the hang of it. When I go back and read our archives, I cringe at my early writing, (soooo many words!) but I still feel very proud at what we have created so far.
I have loved watching the continuing evolution of Liam’s art style. I have always been a fan, but working on a sustained project such as this has given me a greater appreciation of his talent. It is a genuine honor to be working with such an amazing artist.
But the biggest thrill of the last three years has been YOU--- our readers. You have helped make this project very rewarding. I am humbled and flattered by the number of people who have made LUC part of their week. Thank you for “liking” us on Facebook. Thank you for your e-mails of encouragement. Thank you for the e-mails pointing out our mistakes. Thanking you for sticking with us when our real life jobs and lives have got in the way of regular updates. Thank you for showing your support for what we do by buying from our store and by sharing our site with others. And above all… thank you for reading. It is a privilege to have you stop by our little corner of the internet.
It seems to me that Weld County is always the one to make local politics go national. And usually not in a good way. The latest story to get some national attention is that Northern Colorado leaders are publicly discussing secession from the state. I really don't think that this will go anywhere, but there is something wickedly appealing about putting all the narrow-minded Colorado rednecks into one corner and let them do what they want. Darwinism just might take it from there.
I can not emphasize enough the importance of my morning coffee. Some things should just wait until after the first (or second) cup of joe. Like any form of human interaction.
So we had one more Doctor Who related comic... Last one for a while, I promise. (Unless I just can't help myself.)
Special Friday update for LUC. I just couldn't wait for next week. We have established that Holly is a big Doctor Who fan. It makes sense that she would be excited that there was a chance, no matter how slim, of becoming the 12th Doctor. I know I am.
So MR. MOFFAT, I am ready for my audition any time you are.
Denver Comic Con was a great time! Thanks to everyone who made it by the booth. It's always great to meet so many cool people. Some of which even read the comic. We sold out of JESUS ZOMBIE shirts again, so if you want to order one it might take a little longer to ship. Oh, yeah... And THIS happened. our Denver Comic Con print was signed by ALL of the people who we mentioned in the comic (well, those who won) Peter Mayhew, Colin Baker,(Dr Who #6), George Takei, AND William Shatner! It was is ten different types of awesome. If it were any more awesome, the Universe would collapse in upon itself due to the sheer overload of awesome. Special thanks to our weekend helper Angelica Anne Nolen too! You're the best.
LIFE Under Construction will be at Denver Comic Con this weekend! While we are sad that Stan Lee had to cancel at the last minute, the fact that William Shatner stepped up to take his place makes me very happy. If you happen to be attending you can find Liam and I in Artists Valley and with our good friends the Webcomic Pioneers who are back for another panel this year at Denver Comic Con. Check us out Friday night at 7pm in room 109.
