Self Improvement Part 2 by deaddays Self Improvement Part 2 by deaddays
Wooohoohoo! Hey all!
Lookit me and my finishing of comics on time for once! Oh yeah. You're all in awe of my tardi-less ways! On time baby. I think that'll be my new nickname. "On-time." Aye yo, WHAT UP ON-TIME? Yeah, I like that. Well, till next week when I'll probably be late again.
Anyhoo, what up you gorgeous, gorgeous people (seriously, you're pretty). I bring to you PART 2 of the "Self Improvement" DEAD DAYS series! Weeehoo. I think one of my favorite things is to draw is a person thinking. Especially a person STRAINING to think. I dunno why. There's something human (and funny) about devoting 4 panels to a realization. And WHAT A REALIZATION THIS IS!
I remember when I too came to this realization, I was in 2nd grade. So I did something about it, and I haven't had the problem since. Nope, I've been kicking more ass than has been alloted to me. Yep, I've kicked so much ass, there are people in 3rd world countries who don't have enough ass to kick because of me. But my point is that realizing that you're ass-kicking impared is a scary, humbling thing.
So there, the gauntlet has ben cast and it's now up to us to travers it. BUT BEWARE, there is hilarity around every corner and goofyness looming overhead. Let's all hold hands and venture into the process of "SELF IMPROVEMENT."
THANKS FOR READING EVERYONE! So so so so greatful! Part 3 coming soon!
-John

Nice work, the use of comic timing paired with the guy making a valiant effort to think really makes this strip a winner. It reminds me of a similar abrupt realization I had recently, only that was regarding being covered in earwigs, and my desire to not be covered in earwigs. I should probably get around to that now. Anyway, keep making with the funny!

ooooooohhhh snap.

i thought about many things after reading this strip.

that nickname WOULD be very catchy, and even somewhat edgy... in kind of a cocky, yet well deserved way.

also... that strip is a parallel to my own universe. for serious.

i think i've even sat in a chair like that.

it's time to shift into 5th gear in the name of ass-kicking.

only realize now you may be getting more requests for pointers from you.

bwahah... hopefully not too many tho.

When I was in 2nd grade I was too concerned with which color of crayon tasted the best *gnaws burnt sienna* I'll admit, later I TRIED to improve my ass-kickage, but everyone just told me to put my pants back on. I guess they weren't COOL enough.

As I would often say: Bad guy's kick ass. But good guys kick faces.

No point really, just wanted to say that.

Oh, my Thanksgiving rocked ass. I went down to visit my sister in Vegas. Turkey. Gambling. Booze. Hookers. Damn straight it was a good Thanksgiving! Even if all I did WAS hang out at her place and eat pumpkin pie. :)
How was yours?? Good times? Hookers?

Haha fun! Mine wasn't as event-filled. I just hung around with a bunch of drunk Mexicans (yeah, I'm half tortilla muncher :giggle:.. ) and couldn't understand a word they were saying. Sometimes I wish I would have taken Spanish :crazy:.
