August 12th, 2012 – By Rob
Faith and Begorrah, it’s a new comic! And I wrote it! Do my eyes and hands both deceive me? Have I been living out some bizarre Fight Club scenario where my other personality takes over when I think I’m sleeping to write a stupid webcomic? No! Of course not, that’s ridiculous. I was well aware of this all taking place and I’m actually not that surprised. Sorry, I’m not good at faking stuff. Let’s start over.
As expected, the comic is up as Eric told me it would be! I totally wrote this thing, and am as sorry as I can be for unleashing it on the internet. Basically, I felt that given a different light, the setup for the pinnacle of television drama that is Breaking Bad could have easily been wasted as a family comedy in the 90′s. Conflict and violence free! So this is basically my interpretation of that thought process. Holy fuck, what a great show though. I mean, that spoiler where the spoilers totally spoiled that spoil? Vince Gilligan is a living, breathing genius.
I cannot stress enough my love for the show: the acting, the dialogue, the constant nerd-baiting visual clues and masterful foreshadowing. I really don’t know that any show can or will meet it’s quality in my lifetime. What better way to show my love than to reduce it to it’s simpler elements and drown it in cheese?
Speaking of cheese, here’s a transition. We hope to be bringing you more Hatefarms in the nearer than usual future. Eric has some exciting things cooking in his many pots, such as the upcoming Mistress Missy Bondage Fighting flash game (http://hatefarm.com/images/demo.swf) and I’m trying to assemble some ingredients for a stew of my own. If you or somebody talented you know would potentially want to be my drawing monkey/collaborator for a new, much more SFW comic series, drop me a line in the comments or at firstname.lastname@example.org
But wait, there’s more! Gordon McAlpin over at Multiplex (multiplexcomic.com) took a stab at his own version of the last panel:
Which got us thinking… CONTEST TIME! Send in your versions of the last panel to either Eric or I (both of us if you’re feeling sassy!) and you could be the LUCKY WINNER of a FREE Mall Monkeys CD and a custom drawing of your very own choosing! Please have your entries submitted by 8/31/12 and we will announce the winner and runner-ups whenever we damn well please.
Eric and I were also kindly invited to appear on We Are The Geek, (http://wearethegeek.libsyn.com/) Uncle Yo’s weekly podcast dedicated to discussing “anime, comic books, movies and everything pop culture that geeks love!” I’m not sure that we’re part of any kind of culture that anybody loves, but it was fun to record and we hopefully aren’t too painful to listen to! (If you thought my blog posts were long-winded and aimless, you ain’t seen nothing yet.) Check out the site and our episode which will drop on August 20th.
Well, that’s all. Be average to each other. I’m off to a secluded location in the frozen North.
