If you don’t get this comic, you’ve probably never played Splatoon or heard me gush over how great it is. Over the summer I became hyper-obsessed with it, playing it practically every night. I’m even at the point where I watch Twitch streams of other (better) people playing it.
For those unfamiliar, Splatoon is an online game where you play as a kid who also has the ability to transform into a squid (kid/squid – get it?). It’s a shooting game, but, instead of shooting bullets, you shoot ink. You can them swim through this ink as a squid to fill up your ink tank and regain health. In the basic mode – Turf Wars – you shoot this ink to cover the map in your team’s colour. At the end of the match, the team with the most surface – or turf, if you will – covered in their ink wins. Simple. Colourful. Fun.
You may notice that Right Brain Comics got a shiny new coat of paint. Could this mean new comics are in the future? Only time will tell…
(Yes. The answer is yes.)
So you may have noticed a lack of updates in a couple months. That Christmas comic I promised also didn’t appear. The truth is, I just haven’t gotten around to making more.
I promised myself I would update one a week for an entire year and I did. Now that that’s done, I’ve decided to take it easy. That doesn’t mean that I won’t be back. I assure you that I fully intend on making more. It just means that I have decided to scale back a weekly schedule to a “whenever I feel like it” schedule. The banner will be updated accordingly soon. I hope that this will result in more high quality comics than I was churning out sometimes last year. I also want to experiment with a new and possibly sillier art style.
See you soon.. hopefully for real this time.
