Last week, I thought that the title could tie the comic together and make the whole thing work, but after I posted it, I felt it didn't quite resolve the way I wanted. My intention then was to do a comic this week in order to hit that resolving chord, but as I penciled the first marks on the paper I just didn't think I needed a whole comic, and I doodled Rick on the bus with a line of dialogue that stated what was needed, then I realized I didn't need a whole comic, just one panel.

Even then the panel wasn't complete, so I did another doodle, and those sticky notes are this weeks comic. (Unless I can bust another one out, which I will If I can can come up with one.)

I can tell I haven't been playing enough games. Playing games is my muse for this comic; when I'm playing games, the stories just come.

I used to have a neighbor that would randomly pop in with a game or two in tow, and I would drop whatever I was doing to play a game - but now we've moved. . . . Sometimes I miss that.

The Web Series

When I was a kid, there were a ton of values based programs on television. I would venture to say that, a lot of that programming helped contribute to my being a good person. There are the obvious examples: Mr. Rogers, School House Rock, Reading Rainbow. . . But there were also plenty of others, that you may not have thought to categorize that way: Transformers, G.I. Joe, . . . Dungeons and Dragons. They all contained messages about being good to one another, being truthful, honest, honorable, etc. --They were pretty overt about it, and it was contained in programming that was adventurous and fun.

I would like to create an 80's style animated show that is values based and entertaining for kids, and adults.

We're All Game features an ensemble cast of School Age friends learning how to be better people through gaming, and learning to be better gamers through lessons learned in life.

The Web Comic

Right now I'm just one person, with no budget--We're All Game was conceptualized as an animated series, but for now I'm going to start with a web comic.
