    Certainly the weirdest of the comics. Interesting.

  2. adam Says:

    weird how? you mean this particular strip or the whole thing to date?

  3. Sam Says:

    The characters, the plot. You don’t think it’s a little strange Adam?

  4. adam Says:

    maybe there’s stuff that i know that others don’t that make it make sense… is it so weird that it doesn’t make any sense at all?

  5. Sam Says:

    It makes sense. I really think it’s very funny too. But the characters are kind of strange and the robot plot is a little loco. Love it for it though.

  6. adam Says:

    okay phew not nonsense. i’m cool with strange characters.

  7. andrew Says:

    weird? I think this is probably the most straightforward thing I have seen on this site so far.
    I guess it’s weird in the sense that it’s not quite like the other things here – it’s not musingly autobiographic or abstract arty noodling. It’s a story, with some characters, and some gags. Or maybe I’m not reading nearly enough into it.

  8. Sam Says:

    Abstract art noodling? Tim Danko and I take offense!

  9. adam Says:

    no, that’s pretty much what I was going for. glad it comes across.

  10. adam Says:

    and for the record i like the arty and the autobio stuff too!

  11. andrew Says:

    well sure, there is nothing at all wrong with either of those things, or both of them at the same time, even. I am all for a good bit of tim dankoing around, though sometimes you have to get back to the basics – some fzowing and fzapping.

  12. tim zombo Says:

    i’m not sure about tim danko’s name being taken in vain here…. its beginning to feel like an out of body experience.

    I think adams is just as much arty noodling as anything else here. in a neo-pulp genre?

    I hate ‘art’ anyway, its a really dumb meta-tag applied to whateva, its not a genre or thing in itself.

    Craft is better. Crafty noodling. Grafty craft noodling maybe.

  13. John Weeks Says:

    Kolchalka would say ‘craft is the enemy’.
    The New York Times would say it’s the hip new thing.

  14. andrew Says:

    didn’t intend to take your name in vain, Tim, just saying I like your comics is all, just in case I gave the impression that I didn’t.
    Not sure that craft fares much better in signifying anything in particular, but does have a nicer ring to it, so Crafty Noodling it is – Kochalka be damned.

  15. tim zombo Says:

    my fiance defines art as “something that has no function beyond its idea and you know, looking at it” and craft as “something with a function beyond aesthetic pleasure”. I’m not sure where comics come in that.

    oh i was being dry humour about the name in vain. emoticons are no substitute for a tone of voice or a humorous glint to your eye…

    it was a nmice surprise to see you here on this andreqw, and on comiclifestyle… excellent!!

  16. adam Says:

    ooh – a what is art conversation! yay. well, i’ll cop to arty noodling too.

    your fiance’s (i thought you were already married, tim?) definition is kind of close to what mccloud was pushing in his first book. he didn’t talk about craft, though, so that’s a nice extension-cum-modification.

    I suppose I do feel a bit different from those who have gone before on rehab because my drawing-fu isn’t something i’m as confident about compared to my writing-fu, whereas many of the other rehabbers have deadly hands of drawing-fu. So I’m playing to my strengths by working mainly with character and plot instead of something visual.

    But having said that, it may be that EVERYONE who does rehab feels something similar. I dunno.
