Nerf fight turf fight

Congratulations to Alex “Tuba Fett” Baratta, winner of our comic contest! Alex’s inspired this comic and he’ll be featured in a cameo on Wednesday. Thanks to all our excellent entrants–and for those of you who submitted, do keep your eyes peeled–there are a couple ideas that are probably going to make it into our comics down the road and credit will be given where credit is due.

This reminds me a lot of the really early strips for our comic, in structure at least. Cold open, zany setup, bizarro punchline. And the lingering concept of a virus that turns people into Rambos. There’s your daily Monday dose of weirdness, folks.

A big “grats” to Alex! And thanks to EVERYONE who entered the contest! Look for more 4H community events in the future. Who knows, we may even offer a REAL prize some day!

Oh, Nerf weaponry… how I love thee. Though I’ve never owned more than a sturdy Maverick myself, this is one line of toys that I hope never ever goes away. For Nerf aficionados, War is wielding a Raider CS-35, while Pestilence has the classic Ballzooka (as made famous in the Bubsy Bobcat games)

And as a final note, I’ve pondered the topic of conversation in panel 1 on occasion ever since learning in high school biology that Viruses may or may not be life forms.
