Comic for February 8th, 2013
February 8th, 2013

Well that’s it for that experiment.  Welcome back to all of those who wandered away uninterested.  The good thing about the format I’ve adopted with the “episodes” is that if you don’t like a particular story I’m telling you can usually just wait a couple of weeks and it’ll be over.  Also here’s the other purpose to this storyline.

Here’s an attempt to put up the video on my own site instead of youtube.  Tell me, folks in Germany, can you see this? Impossible World

    When I try to play the video, I get a message saying it is private. What do I need to do to watch it?

  2. BrickVoid says:

    When I tried to click on that video link, it gave me static and the following error message:

    This video is private.

    Dang YouTube! :D

  3. Teskeria says:

    Got the ‘video is private’ message also. *tear fall slowly*

  4. hkmaly says:

    Got the ‘video is private’ message too, if you are counting :-)

  5. Kaian says:


  6. DrLegostar says:

    That should be fixed now, sorry.

  7. Mr. Speck says:

    I personally haven’t been commenting not because it’s uninteresting, but because this was so different from the norm that I honestly had no idea what to say.

    Plus, I’m not familiar with the song.

  8. T. Gatto says:

    Nice, now go back and re-shoot the rest of the archives as rock videos! ;)

  9. Tauric says:

    Okay, that was worth it.

    I probably would have liked the episode better had I known more of the songs, but since I didn’t, it kinda lost me. I was impressed by the hazy dream effect, and I thought the bookends were quite nice (apart from being one of the few songs I recognized.

    But the video made it all better.

    • Pyradonis says:

      I mostly second this. I would have liked maybe a greater variety of artists for the lyrics, but of course I shouldn’t argue with Johnny about his personal taste in music. ;-)

      • DrLegostar says:

        I considered this, but I decided I wanted each character to use lyrics from one artist/group, and since it was all about Johnny and the video was going to be Maroon 5, I went with that for all of his dialogue.

    • Curious says:

      Not knowing the songs was a pretty big problem for me personally also. But I have to say, the animation music video was totally worth the wait!

  10. Mongo says:

    Awesome video!

  11. Pyradonis says:

    By the way, can’t watch the video in Germany. :,(

  12. Artemis says:

    Oaky, the video worked for me. :) I thought for sure that Johnny was going to get kicked in at the end.

    Watching the figures move made them seem more three dimentional.

  13. BrickVoid says:

    Re the video: An excellent piece of animation, a joy to watch and the music, although unfamiliar, is similar to music I’ve grown up with, so I can relate to it! :D

    I’m going to have my YouTube persona like the video for you! :D You earned it, as always! ;)

  14. Ralthar says:

    I was half expecting Red to burst into flames of something as johnny walked by in the video. Guess certain running gags just can’t be forgotten.

  15. warbeast says:

    Awesome video. I was really wondering where the dream sequence was going.

  16. Kaian says:

    Oh and Johnny and company on stage as a band was a very nice touch. I hope they do that again.

  17. BrokenEye, the True False Prophet says:

    So… the smoke, the waxing lyrical, the ship randomly repeatedly changing into a Renaissance village and back for not adequately explained reason… would I be correct in assuming that Johnny was tripping balls this entire arc?

  18. Rob says:

    Nice vid Doc, can see it in Australia but that based on a USA supported browsing environment (ie my workplace). I am glad though that the dream sequence is over, I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I could have, but that may be more to do with my unfamiliarity with Maroon 5′s lyrics than any other reason. I still appreciated the artistic value though and since I see web comics as art… ; we all know that artwork is subjective, so keep up the good work Doc!

  19. Cpt Schoberus says:

    Yeah, that works for Germany, thanks man.

  20. Calle says:

    …worked (now) fine in Germany.

    …And I liked the video too – better than the comic (only) part in this particular case.

  21. Delta Echo says:

    Unfortunatly now it says it’s blocked in [the US] blah blah blah copyright blah blah blah. :(

  22. WalkerTexasDruid says:

    Dat was cool!

  23. ladyblanc says:

    I like the music choice for the video. I think my favorite part was actually getting to see TAG’s antenna change color, but it was all pretty cute. I also liked how everyone else got out of Johnny’ s way, but when he got to 46 he decided to turn aside.
