The NeverDigging Story

Today’s comic is the miracle baby of this comic and this comic. I wonder if I’ve violated any international statutes by doing two “Neverending Story” references withing a 12 month period. I’ll probably get a small fine and slap on the wrist at most.

The current HE server was able to withstand the last two front page Digg’s MUCH better than my old shared hosting solution, but there was still several hours of down time for each bediggification.

Regarding the comic, I tried something different this time. I DREW the comic… ON PAPER!!!

Check that out! It’s like a new (old) world. This was basically a test to see if I was still able to draw when pixels weren’t involved. I’m considering making this a regular thing and selling the one of a kind, signed originals with a print of the finished comic. Any interest?

SAVE HIJINKS ENSUE DONATION DRIVE UPDATE:

After announcing the Donation Drive yesterday you guys have already knocked  me on my ass. Monthly subscriptions are at $280/month (over 10% of the goal!) and you sent an additional $500 in one time donations! I am floored by your support and generosity.

The goal to keep The Experiment going is get $2000-$2500/month (roughly half my required income to take care of my bills and family) in Donation Subscriptions in the next 30-60 days. Get ready for me sounding like a broken record because this is going to be my main focus for the next month. Together, I’m pretty sure we can make this happen.

Special thanks to Adam and Chris at Save Hiatus for pimping the Donation Drive. It’s like they have had practice rallying people around a¬† cause or something.

If you have already donated, or are unable to, please spread the word about what we are trying to accomplish. The more Fancy Bastards the better!

  1. I really liked this comic. If there is one thing that needs more referencing it's Neverending Story.

    I know. It's time to eat. Good idea.

    No, it's a great idea! (takes a bite of sandwich) No. Not too much. We've still got a long way to go.

    The dialog…

  2. Was I like everyone else and thought that Bastian said *my mom's* name at the end of the movie? Because I totally know he said Gretchen.

  3. I think it would be cool ('cuz I can't think of a less lame word) if you did a week of hand drawn comics It can be part of a theme, or something more interesting, that the artist types can come up with.

  4. Did you run with the neverending story reference because you worry that this will keep happening? like a neverending, neverchanging, servercrashing story? like some horrible repeating groundhog day? maybe you could solve the problem by making your comics shit, so no one actually enjoys them! then you'll never get dugg! problem solved! also, ILTIS.

  5. I just returned from Wal-mart, where I purchased the Neverending Story/Neverending Story 2 together for $7.50 because of this comic. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.

  6. I agree. After seeing them again, the first gave me warm feelings and fond memories. The sequel is just that, a money grab. It's stomps on those warm feelings and fond memories.

  7. Thanks. I really didnt want to say anything, and probably shouldnt have, because Im not going to convince internet jerks to stop being jerks. if anything I probably made them into double jerks.
