How are you gentlemen. With the help of the united league of superheroes, I am now in a metric assload of homework. Sure, it doesn't make sense, but neither does all this Japanese stuff. I mean, it's like they speak some kind of weird moon-man language! But enough about those problems, you've heard more than enough about them. I should probably outline my purpose for my existence on this internet.

My ultimate goal would have to be publishing my own web-comic, as so many other blogs have seen fit to do. As I see it, there are only two things stopping me from this: determination and talent. I have problems thinking about one subject for more than 5 minutes at a time, a charecteristic of mine which I shall delve into later. I don't know if I could train myself to update on a regular basis, which is a mainstay of any popular web-comic. As for talent, I can draw a pretty mean stick-man, but that's about as far as it goes. When it comes to things like facial structure, shading, and cloth dynamics, I'm a big old loser. I practice when I have time, and I am getting better, but it's slow going to say the least. My new job allows for a lot of free time however, so I think that I can get a decent amount of practice in.

I have a certain obsession with web comics, as it stands. My favorites folder is packed with them, and it's not uncommon for me to spend an hour or more going through the archives of some of the most benign comics to be found. Really though, some of these things are probably the best things to come out of the internet, right next to The Homestar Runner. I guess that is the reason I want to do a comic of my own.
