So here is the second of the “revisited” strips, with added George Lucas style updating and additional “art”. If last time was an example of simplicity and reliance on art vs the written word this is the opposite, possibly the longest (text wise) strip we’ve done.
This is the strip that finally revealed our characters names, before then they we’re simply refered to in scripts as 1 and 2, but here they became Will (after Adama from BSG) Freeman (after Gordon from Half-Life) and Jay (not his real name,) Crowley (after the Demon from Good Omens by Niel Gaimen and Terry Pratchett). We had asked people from our facebook group to come up with names, those rejected include
- “Xenar the destroyer of worlds”
It’s also one of my favorites as I had a lot of fun writing it, especially the tickers running along the bottom of the screen, we came up with about 20 or so jokes for that and it’s a shame we couldn’t fit them all in. In fact in the end one of the ticker jokes became a strip in it’s own right.
So I give you Noobs at 10, the greatest hits edition, and please ignore the bad joke in the middle of the strip, it’s deliberate, honest.
P.S: A little note for fact fans out there, this is the first strip where the characters get “real” eyebrows.
