Lest you think I’m being too hard on David Willis, know that he’s at least as hard on himself. Honestly, I like Roomies; it’s a good comic despite its Early Installment Weirdness, and it has a certain charm that isn’t present in Willis’ later works. Which, to be fair, have replaced that charm with a different, more vitriolic, charm.
Look, I can’t give David Willis a compliment unless it’s backhanded. Pretty sure I’ve got some kind of genetic disorder.

The 2013 Pinhook Slalom Open is tomorrow, and I’m going to be there!
You may recall Sketch Comedy partnering with Envision Skate Collective last year to promote and support Pinhook 2012, and this year we’re doing it again. First, we’ll be selling the original art shown above and donating the proceeds to charity:water. Additionally, I’ll be hanging out at the race, bringing t-shirts and original comic strip artwork and generally having a great time chilling with cool people. The race begins at 10 AM Saturday morning (6/15), so come out, say hey, and watch some awesome downhill skateboarding races.
One of the best parts of creating a webcomic is interacting with you, the readers. However, automated spambots attempt to inundate my comments section with links to questionable internet locations, and I have to employ a comment filter to keep out the spam! Most of it is obnoxiously blatant (e.g. anything referring to a “weblog,” a “publish” or an “argument”), but from time to time I come across something that is actually amusing. Here are a few from my most recent sweep of the spam filter:

“Fastidious respond in return of this issue with solid arguments and explaining the whole thing regarding that.”
Voyance Gratuite, do you mean Skip’s argument, or James’?

A formidable share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little analysis on this. And he in actual fact purchased me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If attainable, as you change into expertise, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more particulars? It’s highly useful for me. Big thumb up for this blog submit!
So, stack on safes, is your colleague a gastroenterologist? I’m glad you found my fart-joke comic strip so informative, and I hope your friend got you the chili cheese fries. Honestly not too sure what the size of your thumb has to do with anything.
Of course, in panel 2 I neglected to mention Howard’s grievances.
Man, I really am a jerk in this comic.
Deliberately Antagonistic Twilight Sparkle is funny to me. I may have to parody (and fairly use!) MLP more often.
I wonder when Season 4 starts.
