And just like that, I had 50 comics.
You'd think this would be an important milestone of some sort, something that I would plan for. But no, I planned today's comic so poorly that I'm actually putting today's comic and this news together while in a car (don't worry, I'm not the driver). On the plus side, this is a new experience for me. But between the bumps on the road and the looming car sickness, I don't think I'll try this again.
In case you're counting, 50 comics does not include the bonus comic for Back to the Future day. Bonus means extra... you know this.
I'm traveling this week, hence the car. I had the honor of meeting the musical genius Rene Rosa on this trip. Readers of my old comics would recognize him as the singer/songwriter of "The Ballad of Dr. Lobster", the greatest (and perhaps first) theme song of any webcomic (my old webcomic that I did with Michael Buonauro was coincidentally called Dr. Lobster). He played me some of his more recent work, when he was half of the band The Lunatiques. It's dark, twisted, and fun... and absolutely my new favorite music. We had a great time (from my perspective) discussing ancient history and I'm seriously bummed I didn't get a chance to meet him sooner.
For an idea of what it's like to speak with Rene, check out his podcast, Sherman Tanks.
