1up.com Gmod coverage and Interview...






Continuing their massive coverage on Half-Life 2 all this week, 1up.com today posted an article, called "Modding the Source" about Garry's Mod and the Gmod community, of which I am a proud card caring member of.

Page 2 of the article, talks about "The 12 Wonders of City 17", and has an interview with yours truly and I am flattered to have made the top of the list. Quite amazing to me considering the incredible things some people are making. The page also features a trailer for a 1 issue prequel called "Apostasy: Zero", that I am working on. Have a look.

1up is posting some really cool stuff all this week about the upcoming expansion "Half-Life: Aftermath" and Half-Life 2 for the Xbox. Be sure to stop by there and check out all the cool stuff they have. There will be something new every day this week!

Problems at PHWComics...

Just a small announcement that PHWComics has been having some problems with their site recently. If you are trying to view the comic and can't, the site is probably down. The guys have been working to try to get the problem straightened out.

Thanks for your Patience.

6 Degrees of Chobot...

Recently, I have been talking to Jessica Chobot for a bit about doing an interview for her WTF column on IGN.com.

So last week I was going through some old graphics files, looking for something. I ran across these old photos I saved from an old friend Leanne's blog, who I knew when I lived in Chicago. I have a tendency to save photos people post online and not organize them at all, so they are scattered all over. I saw this one of Leanne, who married an ex-coworker I used to work with in Chicago And what did I see on the left...



I kept thinking to myself my goodness, that looks like Jessica Chobot... and I am thinking back... Leanne HAD a friend named Jessica... bottom line, this is her.

WEIRD SMALL WORLD!

Oh... and be sure to check out Jessica's WTF #11 on IGN.insider.

Where the HELL is Issue #3?!!

I know a lot of you have been asking this. Well without further delay let me say that "yes" Apostasy will continue and give an explanation for the current delay...

The last issue was done very, very quickly and more or less was a little burnt out so I decided to take a small break (notice I said small). I also felt that the issue was done too fast and contained a number of errors that could have been avoided if I had taken more time. Alas, other forces come into play causing other havoc... more or less, I lost my job. On top of this all, I was moving at the end of July. So I had to basically move and look for employment which had to take the forefront in my life.

Rest assure, I found employment working for a major electronics retailer. Not the kind of money I am used to or free time, but it is something. Work on Issue #3 is getting ready to resume as well as a couple of other surprise projects I am working on that I will be able to fill you all in on hopefully soon.

Thanks for all of your support!
