Is it just me, or did Thursday come really quickly this week? Wow.

I received a message saying that the visitors had increased on one of the comics we cameoed on Monday, so thank you guys for checking them out... :D

This section has been particularly difficult for me to write, so I'm hoping that the next section will make things a little easier... We're getting close to the middle section of the book, so hopefully within the next couple of strips, people will see the general direction that the story will be headed for this portion...

I promise not to pretend to kill off a main character at the end of this one :D

Anyway, if you're in Canada, enjoy your Friday long weekend! If you're in the US, enjoy your Monday long weekend.. If you're anywhere else, enjoy your weekend in general, or bonus points if you get a long weekend for some reason :D

First?

EDIT: HECK YES FIRST.
Why are there no comments this is tremendously disappointing.
Did you ever decide on a name for SUPER RZ!?
I like to call him RZ-man myself.

R-zed that is.


Not R-Zee.

I'm thinking John might be falling on his butt once that limb comes free.

I was about to say that I hadn't seen a big rise in views from the cameo, but I checked Google analytics just now and TOGM is my fifth largest traffic source with 57 unique views, with an average of ten pages read per person :D

Definitely the toys, John. Especially Orphan Girl.

Nice Zombieland reference, there! :D

Agree w/Kristy, it's the toys.

I'm at a guinness brewery! Great work as always! So r.z. Is keeping all the toys from this venture then? That means lots more cameos! Grand plan there! I hope things continue this way the comic is getting better every update. And yea Thursday did seem to come faster this week, but then I'm 6 hours ahead of you here in Ireland.

Also forgot to mention: it's so the toys!

@MatthewJA - We haven't named him yet... Maybe John will ask, or he'll get a spin off comic :)

@Nash - I wouldn't be surprised, but we're skipping ahead the next time we see them :)

@Frosty - Ahhhh, I wasn't sure how it affected anyone in particular, which is why I kept my comment to the one who PMed me :D

@Peter Palmiotti - I'm looking forward to that moment myself!

@Kristy - Especially. I've been wanting to do a Zombieland reference, and given how much they enjoyed mowing down zombies, this seemed like a good time to throw it in :D

@Unka John - I think they're all good ;)

@model S - Yes, he's definitely keeping them, and it will allow me to put in more cameos later, but I'm guessing we'll be taking a break from them for a little while... They are like salt, and a bit here and there is wonderful, but if the lid comes off and it goes everywhere, then no one is really happy ;D

Matthew JA makes another good point is it pronounced "R Zee" or "R Zed"?

Love the toys (duh) I just wish you would make them so I wouldn't need to. ;)

Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
We pronounce it as "Arr Zed" :)
T.Gatto edit delete reply
T.Gatto
Thanks a lot! Now I hafta go back and re -read all of RZed's strips so the pronunciation in my mind can be correct. :(

I shoulda thought Canadians say ZED, not Zee, but no, I was in my own little world. ;)

AAARGH I hate being so damn ethnocentric!
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
I'm off to paris tomorrow. I understand about the cameos. I mean if it's a "background" cameo like the "exploitation now" dolls in megatokyo, they can be fine more commonly, but as long as characters aren't interacting with them. But that's just one way, I like your way better, it's more fun!

Poses in this one were great, and your attention to detail is really improving too.

BRIIIIIIIIICKS
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
@Kevin: my friend, you speak the truth. Mag's writing has gotten more clever as well, the comic has improved by leaps and bounds since the lesbians (1 yeas creation) bonus. I'm proud to be a 4! ... With my luck I'd end up surviving long enough to end up a 2 or 1....

@MatthewJA "BRIIIIIIIIIICKS"

A- Throwing a Cyber Brick at me.

B- I Bricked somehow (Presumably through ignorance about Zee and Zed)

C- A reference to the YouTube Channel (Which incidentally had some guys singing about alligators and Dun Dun Dunnn posted on it).

D- A secret code activating my Super Hero Assassin Alter Ego, for the CIA.

E- __________________________________ (Fill in the Blank).

I thought I was confused BEFORE the last comment! :)

Model S. I presume the Guinness factory was really generous with the take home samples! ;)

Happy Canadian and American holiday’s folks (From Zed to Zee)! I hope to get as inebriated as Model S. at least once this long weekend. ;)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
Gear is my alien counterpart that allows me to wave change into model S. It's like in megaman starforce. I'm just insane, not wasted. but Guinness was alot of fun.

@comic: I just noticed R.Z.'s WTF face with John talking about the ones.
MatthewJA (Guest) edit delete reply
It is clear you simply do not understand the way of the brick!
I think the comments left on this strip will enlighten you :D
