The Halo Experience [ COMIC ]

And thus my lull begins.

Next Wednesday is the five year anniversary of Dueling Analogs. As I’ve been doing since the second year anniversary of Dueling Analogs I’m running guest strips whenever this yearly event comes up. It’s a gift of downtime to myself without the site missing any updates. In fact, if my numbers are right there should actually be twice as many comics in the next four weeks than normal. Plus, this gives me some time to spend some on my other projects (maybe even work on the outercircle) and get caught up on my freelance work, as well.

Now I know I’m starting this event a few days early, but this year I have even more guests that last year. And I didn’t want to give anyone the shaft by having their strips run on Thanksgiving or Black Friday. I’ve very impressed with the comics that my fellow webcomic compatriots submitted. Definitely an awesome lot of awesomeness. Nonetheless I will be back to my regular updating schedule on Monday, December 13th Thursday, December 16th Monday, December 20th.

I kick off the five year anniversary of Dueling Analogs with an awesome Halo, or more specifically Ha-Bro (I’m clever), guest strip was done by Carter Fort and Paul Lucci the team behind The Crooked Gremlins. This is the Crooked duos’ second submission to the guest strip celebrations. Their first being here.

I’ll still be posting regular blog updates over the next few weeks, but make sure to also check out the work of the webcomic creators that are kind enough to give this tired father a little down time when he needs it most.

    That was the best. I love foul mouthed xbox live immature children.

    Thank you for letting us know what to expect. Hopefully this will reduce the number of “What if Stever Piersky Did Dueling Analogs?” questions.

    And on a personal note: come on, wouldn’t we all like a month off?

    • AnonMan

      Oops, should have quoted you saying the actual date…

  • PorkRoll

    Oh, man. That is one damn funny comic strip (and accurate). LOL (literally)

  • Flammable Hippie

    DA comic is lacking “your mom” joke so ill make one: “We also have a serving of your mom’s ass… oh wait. i already ordered that. she gave me a full serving. all night. boom. shaka laka. shaka laka.”

  • Vess

    Ha ha, took me a second to understand what happened, but I LOL’ed when I got it. ^_^

  • Oh man this comic’s great. “Your dad’s dick – it’s what’s for dinner.” or “Your dad’s dick – the other white meat.” lol

  • Chaos

    Where are all the little 10 year olds running around and screaming? That place has got to be like Chuck-E-Cheeses except with more dangerous sharp objects.

  • Ido

    I am still wondering if this is a representation of Xbox live service or just another everyday douchebag.

  • Randomgamerdude

    Is this a representation of Xbox live or Halo Reach? Either one fits the bill.

    • Randomgamerdude

      Btw that’s no pun intended.

  • I’m reminded of tsundere cafes in Japan. For the uninitiated, a “tsundere” is a typically-female character who can go from lovey-dovey to bitch in the drop of a hat (often dropped by their loser boyfriend). In a tsundere cafe, your waitress is immediately hostile towards you, but warms up to you during your visit and eventually apologizes. I’m not sure how popular they are (this is Japan, after all), but I hear the waitresses enjoy working there. After all, how many businesses pay you to be rude to customers (intentionally)?

      I know some waitresses who would at least consider killing for a job like that. It’d probably also be a popular job for women who’ve not enjoyed working at maid cafes.

  • I’m sure their minimum wage is $3.43….
