151 "The Night Harvest"
November 01, 2012

I hope to not going on a hiatus of that magnitude again anytime soon--getting back into the swing of things was a little rough. I'm going to try updating regularly again, but it will very much be on a "whenever the comic is done" schedule; between work and school, finding time for comics is legitimately difficult, especially when they take me an embarrassingly long time to finish. But if I squeeze in a bit of progress here and there, instead of trying to make them in one sitting if possible, I think I'll be able to manage putting up a new comic more frequently than once every few weeks. So that'll be neat.

Even though there's been a two month gap, I can't really think of anything notable I'd want to include in this post. Then again, my memory is terrible and I'm not trying too hard. There are some exciting things that have come out since my last update, though. First, The Avengers released on DVD and Bluray, and much more quickly than I expected. If you haven't seen it yet, I'd highly recommend it. I mentioned it back when I saw it in theaters, but I haven't had a chance to now formally confirm that I enjoyed it more than the new Batman film.

Second--and if you follow me on Twitter, you've been through this already--there's a game that came out pretty recently called Mark of the Ninja. It's produced by Klei, who you may recognize as being the guys who brought us Shank. MotN is available on the Xbox Live Arcade as well as Steam, and I really just can't give it enough of a recommendation. I was totally addicted to this game for like two weeks, which isn't bad considering I had it finished in about two days. It's a side-scrolling platformer with emphasis on stealth, and it's just executed perfectly. If you can't take my word for it, I challenge you to read reviews on this game. You will notice that any of them from a reputable source will praise the game with near-perfect scores. While you're doing that, keep in mind that all of the wonderful things that they say about this game are completely true. There's a free demo available on XBLA, and the full game is only $15. Admit it, you've bought shittier things for more than that.

Anyway, I hope everyone has had or will have a safe and fun Halloween, and that the year has delighted your mouth with several delicious candies.
