And we’re finally back to actual comics!
You can find the start of the current storyline that this follows up on here.
This picks up the story of my frustration with/obsession with time, and takes it to jobs I’ve had in adulthood to make ends meet while I’m trying to be an artist. The time and money connection is going to be where Capitalist Pig comes back into the story, as the rabbit tries to think of new ways to monetize his creations.
Simultaneously, Rickets and Prester are going to run out of money, and Prester’s cocaine habit is going to lead them to some desperate measures. For long time readers of my comics, you’ll remember that a while ago Rickets and Prester cracked open Capitalist Pig, who’s a piggy bank, with a baseball bat, and they’ve been living off the money that poured out of him since, but it’s gonna run out eventually. Capitalist Pig, meanwhile, after being beaten with a baseball bat and robbed, has been plotting his way to get even.
As these comics often do, the storyline about the rabbit needing to learn to monetize his comics is turning out to be eerily reflective of my own life, because I really need to get money together for a new laptop. To that end, I’m going to start organizing some of the art that I’ve created, and some time this weekend I’m going to start making a listing for comics of which I’ll be selling the original art, so if you’re interested in that check back. I think I’m also going to put together some kind of offer to do original sketches of the characters for people who would like to donate to the Get Rick a New Computer fund and help these comics continue to come out in a timely fashion. So, if you’re interested in original pieces, check back, and if there are particular comics that you’d like the original art for, ask me and I’ll see if I have the art still!
