Transformers Kool-Aid Week!
July 30th , 2007
Well friends, Transformers Kool-Aid Week comes to a close today, it's been a good run, lots of walls have needed repair and I've developed an unquenching thirst and a need for sugar. Specialty weeks are always fun even if they're a lot of work. In case you've missed any updates, I actually updated the site each day this week which started with last Monday. So if you've missed any days go ahead and scroll back or check the archives. Thank you Megatron. Your comics always make me burst out laughing. I added in the last panel. In case you're wondering, I will be updating Thursday, I'm hoping to continue with the current storyline then. Transform and roll out!

Wow, updating every day this week has been mentally exhausting, I can't quite describe it. Trying to think up something new, even reusing my own artwork is tough, well at least for me. I think after this is over I'm going to need a bit of a break. I'm going out of town next weekend anyway so maybe I'll take my break then. I'll let you guys know in advance of course. Luckily Megatron is always there to help when I
plead ask nicely. In some non-TF related news, I finally finished book 7 of Harry Potter. Some things were a little disappointing I'll admit, but I certainly enjoyed reading it. I think of the entire series though, my favourite has always been book 3.

I'VE GOT A BIG, BIG THIRST FOR HUMAN BLOOD!
Come on, tell me you weren't thinking that when the Mountain Dew machine came to life in the TF movie and started randomly shooting its cans at people.
But it's no Devastator. Not even close. And for all you movie fans who might still be introducing themselves to the G1 characters and timeline, this here is Devastator. He's a gigantic robot that forms when 6 seperate robots combine. (All the size of a normal transformer) He's coming to get you!
On a personal note, today is my brother's birthday. Happy birthday bro! Even though you laugh at my site and think I want to hear 4 different versions of 'you got the touch' at work.

Yay, it's Friday!
Wow, where did the week go? Today I have a special 'art gallery' main page, dedicated to some of my sketches/coloured transformers pieces that don't really fit into any comics. I have posted some of them on other sites, but here they are, all as one. The Hound picture you might recognize from the banner up here on the news page, but now you can see in a slightly larger format. Enjoy!

So today's main page is a bit of a dedication to when I first started out building the site, a year ago now, right after I got it. I had actually been agonizing over a name for it, wanting something 'familiar' sounding but distinct enough that it would be available on the web. I eventually settled on Comics in Disguise, I figured if they were bad enough then the name could have a double meaning and it was related to the Transformers universe. I look upon some of my old work and cringe, but I keep it up anyway. I remember sometime last year mentioning I wanted to see how my art evolved.

Somehow I don't think the Decepticons would have enjoyed how they were portrayed in the movie, with the possible exception of Blackout, he was a badass.
I feel the movie has been out long enough for at least 90% of transformers fans to see it that I can start making slightly more 'revealing' comics without ruining it for anyone.
Unicron told me he thought I was 'above' taking cheap shots at the movie. He thought wrong! What's a comic artist for, anyway?
It's not only Decepticons that like to burst through walls (or door/walls)!

Happy Birthday Comics in Disguise!
*confetti* *balloons* *music*
And what better way to start a new, new year than with the big Decepticon leader himself busting his way into some building. Maybe it's a powerplant, maybe it's a preschool, we're not quite sure.
I definitely have to say, that there are more people visiting the site now than there was a year ago, especially when it was first starting out. I feel I've come a long way with it, especially with updating twice a week. I salute the webcomic masters who seem to keep to their schedules so effortlessly, because it's definitely not easy. This week however, as a special, I will be updating with something new everyday.

Well, to help kick off the 1 year anniversary of Comics in Disguise, I thought we'd do a summer-themed week. Me and Megs always thought it was hilarious how the Transformers enjoy bashing through walls. I hope you enjoy it too!
Also to help kick off the week is a double update- gotta get the story moving along, whatever shall happen next!? For those new to the website, any special 'week' will have daily news updates, and since this week is my anniversary week, I will be putting up new things daily on the main page too.
See you tomorrow!
