We wanted to do something special for our one hundredth strip, as well as pay homage to our first fallen character. We’re incredibly proud, not only of this image but of the 99 others that preceded it. Both of us wish to wholeheartedly thank everyone who’s helped us reach this milestone, first and foremost the family and friends we’ve neglected due to the time creating these strips requires. The love and understanding they’ve given us through the endless hours spent in front of a computer screen allows us to keep going. We’d also like to thank our comic cohorts at the Ohio Valley Artists League and every fellow web comic creator who’s given us feedback or a positive word of encouragement. And finally, we thank YOU, our loyal readers. Never doubt that we do it all for the Shorties!
But don’t think we’re anywhere near finished! With all the things we have planned, a hundred strips is just a drop in the bucket. You’ll definitely want to stick around to see where we go from here.
TO BE CONTINUED… That wraps up Volume 1 of Short Pants Romance. Volume 2 will begin on January 4th, with new strips debuting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from then on. Happy Holidays everyone and we’ll see you Shorties again in 2010!
This strip is a pretty good introduction to Sam as a character. Mainly, his wild oscillation between determined man-of-action and depressed sad-sack. It also exemplifies Maurice’s most important role in his life: mocking said mood swings.
The Spider-Man homage wasn’t written in the script, but Michael threw it in and I thought it was a brilliant touch. Expect many more where that came from.
