No jokes here, folks. Just a mini exposition dump and some plot development!

"Gist" is spelled with a g, not a j.

Hence the reason you're commenting. I'm patient enough, and don't care enough to wait with minimal complaint. I want to see something unique and shocking, and I'm willing to bet that it will crop up here eventually, sooner rather than later.

Everyone, just ignore the troll. I looked at his profile, and not only are most of his comments hate comments directed at Lugbzurg's other comics, he's also a racist who casually uses the "n" word.

Now, watch as he replies to me, and I don't reply back.

Yeah, but according to "The Secret of Mamo" he's either an idiot or a God. After all, I've heard it said there's nothing more dangerous than an honest man.

What if he really is homeless and lazy?

Odd, when did you receive your award and official troll status? I have both. You seem more like an irregular troll than a master truller.

I cannot grant you official troll status. That luxury is reserved for the comic creator's themselves.

However, I can direct you to the one who awarded me my prized trophy. Granted, she isn't a forum moderator here at smackjeeves, but you can still contact her.

She's currently a social drinker teaching students in Japan or Korea. I know this not because I'm a stalker, but because she revealed everything about her personal life through her web comic. Like a boss.

Fortunately, I'm not that hare brained crazy. And, you can find her presently on smackjeeves and deviant art through the following addresses...

http://umeboshiheart.smackjeeves.com/

http://zinacat.deviantart.com/

Zina hasn't been active for years but I suspect the following smacker is equally talented. Surpass her in trolling and you will have your reward.

Just recorded a commentary playthrough with Ragnamune. We played Army Men: Sarge's Heroes for the Nintendo 64! There's a sequel, too. So, we'll be playing that soon.

If he did that LugZ could potentially be depriving himself of future criticism from a world class reporter. Remember, they're completely shameless.

@Lugbzurg: ...Wow, this is a very different response from you. The last few times someone acted like a jerk for no reason around here, you got mad at them, deleted their comments, and blocked them. Or are you just countering his trolling with trolling of your own?

@Lugbzurg:

The image loading error problem has been ongoing since saturday. Many people have been complaining about it since the 19th.

According to the admin's it "might" be resolved in a couple of days. Until then they suggest you redirect traffic to a mirror site.

Which is great for me since, one of my web addresses expired and insted of pointing to smackjeeves I guess it should be directing traffic to comicfury.

I'm just going to wait it out. I try to keep back-ups soft copies and hard copies of everything I created anyway.

@GabrielsThoughts: Actually, it seems the image loading problem has been fixed now. You know what's REALLY weird about the whole thing? At the same time this was going on here, Deviantart was having a similar problem with image previews.

@Jarkes:
I didn't know that. I don't really hang out on DA unless I'm collecting reference material. And, I know how to use it properly so I don't actually copy anything without making it blatantly obvious who the source is.

Then again, transformation sequences are so formalized now that most of my attempts at such have looked awkwardly similar to the work of others. Even when I tried for something completely original it wound up looking similar to something else.

@Lugbzurg:

Researching is the most labourus and time consuming part of creation. I'm still trying to track down information on Crossgen educational materials.

Having studied the the fundamentals of game design, and the history of video games, oral history, and the psychoanalysis of film while in college, you can understand my interest in the works of doctor Richard Gardener.

I want to make an educational comic with beneficial (not to mention therapeutic) role play elements... it would be something created along similar lines as "Spice and Wolf" or the cherokee language.

I'm not sure which at this time.

I have recently been studying the art of dodging questions and projecting calm assertive energy. I discovered the "Lexicon of Comicana" just yesterday and I might look into it when I finally get around to reading jung's book of common symbolism in dreams. I have also been reading up on art therapy.

And, I have that magical crisis thinking that everything is going to work out for the best as long as I continue studying. As opposed to looking for financial freedom which may or may not be a pipe dream at this point.

Y'know, something that bothers me about Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 is that, despite the expanded Unova Pokedex, the Elite Four have the exact same initial teams from the previous games, with the exception of Shauntal, who has exactly ONE different Pokemon. And their post-National Pokedex teams have barely changed either.

Another thing that bugs me goes across both Gen V games: The Pidove line. The Pidove line has pretty good Attack, and pretty bad Special Attack. So naturally, Game Freak gave it a moveset that was made up almost entirely of Special moves. Face freaking palm. The worst part about it is that, unlike a lot of other Pokemon who got revised movesets between Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, Pidove's moveset didn't change at all. But then again, this is the same developer who refuses to give Flareon any decent physical Fire-type moves, like, I dunno, FLARE BLITZ.

Want to hear something silly. The winner of the recent doodle for google is being accused of plagiarism, or at least shenanigans, because her artwork has the same theme as somebody else's.

because clearly this...
http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/slideshow/google-doodle-cesar-chavez-10759716

has the same theme as this...
http://www.statepress.com/2011/10/23/editorial-cartoon-oct-24/

therefore plagiarism is involved. ???

Are you flipping kidding me?
