Grey's Staying
by Breck

Upon further consideration, I've concluded that the aforementioned Mallard Fillmore looks more like Daffy Duck than Grey looks like Mallard.  They're dissimilar enough for it to not matter, in my opinion.  If you disagree, please comment as such.  This is all based on perceptions, after all.

CONCERNING COTTON BALLS:  Actually, I don't have a whole lot to say on this subject.  They're useful, I guess.  The only thing I can really think of to do with them is use them as swabs for injuries and stuff.  Oh, and for elementary school art projects.  Gotta love those things.

100 Visits!
by Breck

Alright, AM officially has 100 unique visits.  That's a good start.  Thanks to all of you readers for that.  As always, there's a new comic scheduled to come out in about 12 hours.  Be there!

CONCERNING GREY:  So, I've recently realized that Grey Duck looks quite a bit like the political cartoon character, Mallard Fillmore.  As a result, I would expect some moderate changes to Grey's appearance over the next week or so.  Nothing drastic, mind you, just enough to clearly distinguish between the two.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!

No blog update in a while.  Well, since Thursday.  Been busy watching Big Ten football and rocking out with my band.  As always, new strip at midnight plus 1:01 (and whatever time zone correction you need if you're not on US central time).  You should be looking forward to it, really.  Plus, tomorrow is Monday!  That means we all get to go back to work!  Alright!

CONCERNING PROMOTION:  I haven't done much promoting of AM yet, because there isn't a whole lot of content up yet.  That's why there are little to none of you actually reading these blog posts.  At any rate, once more content is up, I'll spam the "shameless advertisement" section of the ComicFury forum and get the word out that I'm writing again on facebook.  Should be fun.  To those of you who are reading it already:  Thanks, you guys are cool because you appreciate good comics.  Right.  Have a great week, everyone.

iiiiit's Thursday!
by Breck

Yes, you read it correctly.  Today is Thursday, October 8th, 2009.  There will in fact be a new comic up in about 9 hours (at exactly 12:01:01 am central) as per usual.  Aren't you lucky?  I will warn you, though.  There may be a little bit of character development within the next few days.  Nothing heavy, but you will get to know these guys a bit better.  Also, expect a few new characters to appear within the next few weeks.  It will happen.  Who will they be?  Well, you'll just have to wait and see!

CONCERNING THE STYLE:  In case you were wondering.  Yes, this comic is supposed to look sketchy and unrefined, because (let's be honest), the subject matter is rather sketchy and unrefined.  If your curious, it's all digital.  I use a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet with The Gimp.  Photoshop is a bit too slow for my tastes, though Gimp seems pretty chuggy at times.  Oh, also Gimp is free.  I like free.  Plus, this way I can keep Adobe software off my computer.  I swear, its updater is almost as irritating as Apple's.  I say almost because Adobe's updater can be uninstalled.  Apple's is really just a virus with the Apple logo on it.  At least that's what it seems like.  Last time I reformatted (BSOD like crazy), the logs blamed Apple updater.  I don't like autoupdates anymore.  Not at all.  But I digress.

Here We Go
by Breck

And thus the second regular A.M. strip is released, at exactly 12:01:01 central time on Wednesday, October 7th, 2009.  This will be the normal release time on all 3 regular release days in the future (because midnight is for the weak).  Anyway, this webcomic is for real now, and the schedule will be held.  I may go insane from lack of sleep, but its nothing I haven't dealt with before.  Buckle up, folks, it's gonna be a bumpy (albiet hilarious) ride.  Enjoy.

CONCERNING RATINGS:  I know its a hassle, but if you have the extra time and you like what you see in these comics, please give them a rating.  I'm not gonna tell you to only give me high marks, but I will ask that you be honest.  After all, that's what ratings are all about.  Also, feel free to subscribe.  I'm honestly not sure what subscribing does on ComicFury, but apparently if you have a lot of subscribers its a good thing.  Kind of like comparing penis sizes, only less illegal to do in public.

Official Schedule
by Breck

At long last, Animal Magnetism has a normal updating schedule.  Well, it had a normal updating schedule yesterday too, but I added Wednesday today.  The extra day per week will give me a chance to develop the characters a bit more than I could otherwise.  It should be good.  Keep an eye out.

CONCERNING MUSIC:  If you're not a KISS fan I feel nothing for you but pity.  Within the past hour or two in the US they've just released their first studio album in 11 years.  From what I've read and listened to already, it is nothing short of pure badassery.  Anyway, this whole spiel isn't really relevant to Animal Magnetism at all, except that so far I have listened to KISS while drawing every single comic thus far.  You can bet that the next one I do will be fueled by Sonic Boom (their new album) and caffeine.  Anyway, KISS fans rejoice!
