y2cl#764 – FTR#31 Tribute

The story behind this strip ended up to be kind of lame.  Bernie Hou, creator of the webcomic Alien Loves Predator, announced that his comic was coming to an end.  I felt compelled to do something in memory of these great characters he made, so we asked his permission and drew up this spoof of AVP using Abe and Preston.

Of course, a few months later he decided not to end the strip after all, making us look like douchebags!

We could have done a different joke with AVP but instead wasted it on a tribute that wasn’t even needed!  And he didn’t even comment on the strip or put it on his site!  Hey, Bernie Hou!  If you’re reading this, thanks a lot, jerkass!


(You’re lucky you’re so damn funny or I’d stay mad at you…)

One Punch Reviews #22: Deleted Scenes

Webcomic Beacon #56 - Photo Webcomics, featuring Night Zero

Fes flies solo tonite as host. However, he is joined by Anthony Van Winkle and Forest Gibson; co-creators of the zombie, photo webcomic Night Zero! We also discuss a bit about Photo Webcomics in general. Very short show this week as we stay on topic.

Dr. Eldritch In The House!

Evan Nichols is the creator behind the long-running Ask Dr. Eldritch webcomic.  The long-running adventures of the intrepid advice columnist Dr. Eldritch are nearing episode #500 which is a pretty significant milestone for any comic project.  The concept here alone cracks me up.  Just check out the intro to the "Letters" page at the site:

Dr. Eldritch answers the questions that no other columnist will touch, with solid, no-nonsense advice to get you through those once-in-a-lifetime crises:

  • Being menaced by the Undead?
  • Scientific experiments gone horribly wrong and may destroy the Earth?
  • A Loved One is possessed by Satan?
  • Your gorgeous lover is using you as a patsy for an elaborate swindle?

Don't fall victim to vampires! Don't get slashed by a psycho! Don't get stuck, ASK DR. ELDRITCH!

Read on for my interview about the good doctor with his creator, Evan Nichols.

Welcome to Neo Monster Island

Sean McGuinness is the creator of the website Neo Monster Island and the webcomic Twisted Kaiju Theater it hosts.  Kaiju is apparently a Japanese term for monster.  McGuinness makes TKT with his own collection of Godzilla toys so you know it's a labor of love... of love and smashing Tokyo to bits.  I got a chance to interview McGuinness about his long-running webcomic (since August 2000!) via email last month.

See you, Space Cowboy

Well, folks, it looks like it’s time to power down The Webcomic Overlook for a while. As some of you already know, in a short while, El Santo is getting hitched! So you’ll probably be calling me “Mr. El Santo” in the near future, I suppose. Also, the updates will probably slow to a trickle. It’s already been rather difficult to update this site lately, what with all the picking up relatives from the airport and wrapping up wedding favors and scheduling spa appointments and coordinating with the bridal party and such.

I May Be the Mayor of Webcomicton

Just Got Back from SPX Day One

I'm only doing one day of SPX this year (today) which is too bad because it was chockfull of cool people and good comics. I just got home from spending the afternoon there and I'll have a more "formal" (yes I'm making the air quote with my fingers in my head as I write that word) convention report later this weekend but I thought I'd do a quick post right now.

Join me in "read more" land if you dare!
