It's Friday, which means there's a new comic up.  As usual, there'll be 3 more next week at 12:01:01 am Central.  Tell your friends!  Spread the word!  Also, feel free to vote up on this on the conveniently located reddit box up top.  Aight, that's enough of my begging for now.

CONCERNING COLA:  Answer me this: Why does Coke taste 10^6 times better when it's in a glass bottle as it does when its in a can?  It doesn't make sense.  Is it all psychological, or does the can release chemicals from the metal that taint the flavor?  Also, why did I using scientific notation?  Is it because I'm in the middle of (putting off) a homework assignment and my brain is wired that way right now?  All are good questions to which we may never know the answer.

See you Monday,


Is it still Wednesday?

If you're like me, today has been a looooong day.  If you're like me, today is also mostly over.  Congratulations, you've made it to the weekend (sort of).  I mean, Friday is basically the weekend, because nobody actually gets any work done, and Thursday is the new Friday, so nobody gets much work done, right?  That's how I like to think.  Anyway, as usual, there'll be a fresh comic at precisely 12:01:01 (US Central) on Friday morning.  Be There!  Or read it later.  I guess it doesn't matter a whole lot.

CONCERNING COCKROACHES:  They're nasty and they're indestructable.  Its nice to know that when nuclear war destroys us all, our planet will eventually be populated by their eventually-intelligent descendents.  I saw Men In Black.  I know what smart roaches means, and I don't like it one bit.  So please, if you ever, EVER are in charge of a nuclear weapon, do the smart thing and don't shoot it.  Thank you.

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.
