Here's to another five years of this s**t.

I liked your old art...

Edit: Well damn, I think I remember that old Ultrajoe post in the Ebert strip. Don't think I noticed it there first time round.

Honestly... I like listening to people talking about their old work for some reason. Either there's a hilarious story behind something, or there's a lot of self-deprecation and flagellation... either way, it makes for great comedy and at the same time I get to see a bit into the mind of the people who create this shit I like so much for reasons I can't explain beyond "Its goddamn funny."
Happy 5 years, here's to however more you guys have in you. Also would love another episode of this.

It's so unfair, five years of dedication from these guys equates to one shameful weekend of binge-reading for me. Whatever you do, don't stop now.

Did someone say DONUTS?

Sorry, got distracted for a second. Oh and guys don't do nipple pinch these days. We have clamps for that, because 30 shades.

When was this webcomic competition? That actually sounds really fun. Someone should host another one of those things

Well it was 5 years ago >.>

and yea, some of the more memorable shows and comics came out of those competitions. We should have more

I need MOAR. MOOOOAR.

If you could cover the Evangelion strips and the Quantum Vagina, my life will be made.

Well, uh... yes, that seems pretty obvious now.

Perhaps a better question would have been why was I not aware of it?

...That one's retorical

I love how the whole thing ends, after 16 minuts of bashing ones' one work, with "mistakes were made..." xD

But hey guys, here you are, still, loved by the Escapist! Keep going lads :D

the rober ebert story gave me the giggles

That was a lot of fun! I wonder how long the appeal of going through every comic could last, but that mostly depends on your chemistry. It's definitely there, but I'm not so convinced for "years and years" of comics 8 or so at a time. But if there is anything this has taught me, it's to not judge y'all outright by your first attempt.

Loved seeing an introspective into the early strips. I noticed a few things that I'd never even look at which was a good insight.

Main thing in the second strip there was a ps3 version of Tales of Vesperia game on the ps3 and that game only ever got a Japanese release on that platform. I hate myself for knowing this........I love tales games

That accent... it's familiar. Where in England are you originally from, Grey?

I'd watch another one of these. It was interesting to see the perspective on the early stuff.

Has it really been 5 years? Have I been here that long?

This has actually blown my mind, if only for that fact.

ALL the Evangelion strips? If they do that then I think a drinking game is in order!

also, I'm sorry but when I saw the title I couldn't help but think of this:

CRITICAL MISS ARE THE HERALDS OF TORY ELECTION VICTORIES!

Congratulations.

Here's to another five years of your shit at least.

Also, the retrospective was an interesting listen.
I'd be happy to hear grey say horrible things about cory's artwork again while reminiscing about the older strips.

Having you two around has been frequently hilarious and always entertaining - keep it up guys.

Congrats on the milestone guys!

Congrats!

So, guys, how do you feel after all that work?

It seems like the last one was at least 3 years ago. I quite miss them. I know we got Unskippable out of one, but I forgot what else got turned into a series.

Double A:

Unforgotten Realms and Name Game
and I think Top 5

There was probably a few more that only lasted a little while but those were the big ones.
