Yes, the naming scheme for the comics has changed. Now you can count along with us, as our number rises. This way Vegas can put the proper odds up on what number we will get up too as well.
First off, Thanks to Bartcop who linked to the strip today!Â I’ve been a been Bartcop.com fan for a long time (and have a link to his site in the blogroll), and while I may not agree with him on every issue, it’s good to see a fighting liberal with a sense of humor!
Second off, for those of you seeing the site from there, welcome!Â This here internet comic strip is set at the lowest rated Cable News company, and has been making fun of cable news, political events, and pop culture for a couple of months now, and is published twice a week.Â It’s drawn by Dangerous Dan Mohr, who also draws the critically acclaimed Everyday Gods webstrip. We alternate between longer story arcs and current event strips, and since we’re currently between story arcs…that’s right, these are the current event strips.
So, please feel free to bookmark the site or add it to your RSS feed, let us know what you think and if you like a strip SO MUCH you want to buy the original art, contact Dan and let him know!
First off, thanks for reading!Â I’ve had this strip idea bouncing around in my head for a LONG time, and as with any idea, the real work is sitting down and doing the hard work to bring it to life.Â Please continue to send me your feedback, spread the word and comment like mad gophers!
Now that the first story arc is done, I’ll write a little bit about how the stories for the strip will be structured.
There will be story arcs that run for a series of strips, like this one that introduced the set-up and characters, and inbetween these story arcs will be “one shot” strips that have gags based on current events, silly little ideas that aren’t big enough for a full story or something that either Dan or I found funny.
I’m also going to be adding character descriptions, ads and other things to make the strip more fun for you, the reader, as well as profitable for me so I can afford to buy the high end scotch I need to fuel the writing, so changes are still coming!
But it is!
“World Wide News” goes live in only two days! (One if you are reading this on Monday!)
I am really excited to see the first comic go up, and look forward to a long and enjoyable run.
I know Cory!! has been working on this for a long time and is most likely mor excited that I am.
So it is only fair that you all get excited about this too.
Lots of news, so pull up a chair and come close!
First off, we have a launch date: 10/27/2009! The first strip will drop that day and it looks as if there will be two a week. The page will also get a lot of additions at the time, as there will be a â€œcharacterâ€ page when a character appears in the strip, so you can keep track of who’s who!
Second, Artist Extrodinaire Dan Mohr will be appearing at FallCon in St. Paul this weekend! He’ll have mini-comics of his other strip Everyday Gods, a mini-comic of World Wide News for those of you who want to see what’s cooking, and there will also be original art, jewelry and anything else he can drag along for sale. Stop by, say hello and buy stuff!
Third, I’ll be at FallCon too! Problem is, I work on the Convention, so I’ll be at the Prize table most of the time, or floating around doing whatever they ask me to. You can always say hello to me, but I won’t have anything to sell…so take your money to Dan, then tell him to tell me you said hello.
Lots of stuff coming in the next few weeks, so get ready, World Wide News is about to go on the air!
