Check, Please.


I got my order wrong a while back and covered castling before check and checkmate. I am correcting that now, but it will look like I'm not posting anything for a while even though I am.

Castling 15: Hassle in your Castle (continued) - 104


Castling is just about finished.

When it is complete I will backtrack and add the check and checkmate strips. This will mess up the numbering, but that's okay.

I finally made it to the 100th strip! I have another 30 done and scanned in and I have at least another 100-150 left to do. Then I will redo the first eighty or so and then I will be ready to publish.

Piece of cake!

See you next time.

Font Test!


I am just trying something out. I just re lettered this strip using a font I made using my own printing. I'm not sure about it, but I want to see what anyone out there thinks.

The original is two strips back.
See you next time.

Castling 4: Get Out Of the Way! - 093


Good news to anyone wondering if I was ever going to get around to putting up more comics. Although I have been terrible at updating - really awful - I have spent the summer writing, drawing and inking strips. I now have built up a reserve of about thirty strips which I will be posting weekly. I decided that since I have so much trouble sticking to a posting schedule I would focus on the strips - something I haven't done in years. I want to finish the strips so I can publish as a book / ebook.

I have a long way to go (every time I think I am close I realize that there are more topics to cover), but I am having fun again and I am motivated to finish.
Thanks.

See you next time.

Check! Double Check - 089.93



BTW, you should check out Eric Dyck's newish comic, Slaughterhouse Slough. It's his comic chronicling his adventures as a Western Canadian returning from years in Eastern Canada. He had a strip while he was in Moncton which told of his adventures discovering this weird land, but I think his work now is the best I've seen it.

Check Please! - 089.1


I am really back on track creating new Chess Comic strips and I was creating a castling strip that mentions Check and I realized that I hadn't covered it yet. I had the strips roughed out and I was publishing them after castling, and that time is now.

Sorry about that.
