    Hi guys! It's been a long time, but with some constant prodding from the wife, I'm trying to get back into photocomicing again!

    This is a complete reboot. I've read back over my old thread many times before, and while there are definitely some gems (I may have some Renidragon's Ridiculous Randomness Reruns), there's a lot of stuff in that thread that's just plain embarrassing. Using English bad words and inserting human sexuality to robots just... doesn't really fit too well, I don't think. So I'm going to clean it up a bit, and replace our bad words with their bad words.

    Secondly, and most embarrassingly, is the way I treated some of my readers, especially Autovolt 127. I have since apologized, and I hope he likes my new comic as much as he liked the old one. I think what I didn't see was that whatever it was that was annoying me was actually just his way of showing his enthusiasm! I should have taken that as a compliment, rather than bash him. Anyway, this go around, if I don't like what someone has to say... I simply will keep quiet. :) 

    Anyway, constructive criticism is welcome. I'm still getting the hang of using GIMP again, so picture quality will improve as I continue.

    Starscream's short of stature. :lol  :lol  :lol 

    I am glad you're back, at what you do best. Nice seeing Runamuck is joined with Runabout. I like how you reference your old series with the bad puns. :popcorn

    I'm not sure whether or not I'll do more one-shots like I used to, but I will ABSOLUTELY continue the trend. In fact, I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to deal with "Runamuck" actually being "Runabout" and having the white-and-orange namesake around, because, just like everyone else, the Runamuck gags were some of my favorite parts of my old comic. :)

    I don't know if I ever got to read your old comic, so it looks like I tuned in at the right time! :D

    Glad to see you back at the comics! It's been a while since I last saw one of them. Also, great re-start! Can't wait for more.

    I can't even remember if I read your old comic or not (I have lost track of all the comics I've read in the past), but it certainly looks like your new comic is off to a good start. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I hope I can get into a groove with regular updates, but for now, I don't know what my update schedule will be - I get up at 4am and don't get home till 6pm. I'm hoping I can do at least a MWF schedule. If I can stay a few strips ahead, all will work out. :)

    What kind of job do you have that requires you to get up at 4 am and work 14 hours a day?

    I'm on a power line crew out in the TX oilfield. The job location is about an hour and a half away. luckily I catch a ride with the foreman, so I don't have to worry too much about gas or putting crazy amounts of mileage on my car!

    So yeah... my great image editing skills! The idea was it was supposed to be a pellet or something that hit Skyhammer there and ricocheted straight up. GIMP is such a versatile image editing tool, and here I am using it for MS Paint like effects. Yay me!

    I should probably slow down.

    I still have a... forward log (as opposed to backlog? I dunno) of comics to be posted, and if I can keep making at least one a day, I can keep posting once a day. Though honestly, I think I'll switch to a M-W-F schedule after tomorrow, at least until I can get about a week ahead.

    Also, I don't know why the flash didn't go off in panel 5. I like the way it looks, aside from being a little too dark. I bet if I were to play with the brightness and contrast...

    Also, I think I want another Cyberverse Legion Vehicon, just to have 3 deluxe and 3 legion sized ones. It'll also give me a 1-2-3: One First Edition deluxe, two "Robots in Disguise" deluxes, and three legion-sized. Maybe if I can find one super cheap.

    Edit: Also, it seems the boards don't like 800 x 600 sized images? Hm. I'll have to go check out what G_13 uses. :)
