The Longest Boneyard

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Today’s comic is kind of an eleventh hour idea. The comic I was original planning to do today was coming out the way that I was hoping. So at the last minute I started pondering things that were Halloweenish for the season. I thought of jack-o’-lanterns, then Jack Skellington, then that the Predator collects skulls and here we are. Originally, I was going to have Jack Skellington’s head in the Predators hand. But in the end I felt Grim Fandango was a more suitable fit.

Seen Next GTA‘s teaser image in Libery City Episodes manual? Wanna know my guess of where it will take place? Texas/Mexico. Perfect place for the next Grand Theft Auto game. Two different countries, tons of diversity, drug running, smuggling people across the border, oil rigs to blow up… tons of new stuff to do. But that’s only my speculation. But it is where I have been suspecting the next game would take place for a while now. Agree or disagree, your opinions are always welcome.

Don’t forget the Epic Mickey print is still available over at BigBoomBomb.com for a limited time and for only $5.95 USD as well. Not a bad offer.

See you on Monday and have a Happy Halloween!

    Wow, I thought for sure it was like some twisted SandBag skull or something…

    I hope it takes place in Texas. I can see a lot of fun things that could go on. Can anyone say a shootout with Texas Rangers?

    I think if it took place in Texas it’d be a bit like San Andreas. The problem with San Andreas was that it was too big… so you got lost in these large expanses of just flat wasteland. Oh wait, that is like ALL Texas is…. It could be unique… however, I think the desert Wasteland like bit will be a bit boring…

    So you scrap your comics when everything is going according to plan? :P

    @Da Mighty Camel I’ve done it countless times before. Or put them on the back burner until I feel like giving them a second shot.

    @DJ: Only if I got the chance to kill a certain Walker, Texas Ranger. ;)

    Drug running? Blowing up oil rigs?

    What you described sounds a lot like Mercenaries 2, only in Mexico instead of Venezuela.

    Besides, from all Rockstar has said in interviews, it’s probably going to be a coastal city (possibly California again) designed for an MMO.

    Wait, two episodes and we’re done with Liberty City/GTAIV? They were pretty meaty packs but I was expecting a bit more than just Ballad of Gay Tony and Lost and the Damned before they called it quits.

    Honestly, Rockstar appears to have lost touch with GTA’s roots and I was hoping they’d eventually release some DLC that proved otherwise. I’ll give GTAIV full credit as a brilliant game, but Volition’s Saints Row 2 does a better job of capturing the spirit of the original Grand Theft Auto games (just look at how GTAIV handles garages compared to Saints Row 2).
