Arrested Disappointment

In all actuality, we’re incredibly excited for the new season of Arrested Development. Still, after all this time and hype, it can’t help but disappoint a certain segment of its fans no matter how good it turns out. Let’s just hope we’re not back here Monday saying they completely “blue” it. ↓ TranscriptRICK: I am so pumped about the new ... Read More »

The Ten Commandments in comic form

Two years ago we started a series of strips chronicling the entire Ten Commandments from the Bible. It’s actually much harder to make jokes about the Ten Commandments than you might think. We valued being respectful (we’re both Christian), but we knew there were humorous tweaks to be made. So if you enjoy them, please share with your friends and ... Read More »

Tenth Commandment

This is one of those real conflict areas of the Bible. We all know how an average nine-year-old might behave with supernatural powers, but did Jesus? I doubt many theologians waste time on this issue, but it’s still interesting. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Rick, what do you think is meant by the tenth commandment? "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's possessions." KID: ... Read More »

The jPhone

Personally I can’t wait to see the new iPhone. Not because I expect it to change my life, but because Apple has become such a bellwether for the industry. They usually don’t get there first, but they’re a pretty good indicator where the rest of the industry will follow. Though if all we see is a wider screen, they may ... Read More »

Reach for the Present

I long ago gave up on explaining any video game to a non-player. The truth is that most are beyond ridiculous when given a moment or two of thought. It’s also always enjoyable to note that you’re the bad guy when you think you’re the hero. ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: So what is the point of this Halo game? Just shoot and ... Read More »

Second Commandment

This strip went through a few different versions. The original was more referential, but perhaps too much so. While funny to us, it would have ended up being too obscure for the majority of readers. The second version wasn’t quite “nail on the head” enough. This third revision seems to work best. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Rick, what do you think is ... Read More »

First Commandment

As a teacher, I often come into contact with wild explanations for common concepts. That’s where the idea for this strip came from. I like the idea that all the gods would sort of hang out together (that’s Ganesha and Poseidon, by the way). The background detail that they’re all seeing Twilight: Eclipse is a nice touch. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Rick, ... Read More »

Demigod

This is the type of strip that makes people mad because we’re being too literal with a definition. It isn’t actually mocking Jesus or anything, but people will take it that way. Preemptively, no, we are not making fun of Jesus. We are, however, making fun of Kevin Sorbo. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Jesus was both man and God. BILLY: So, like ... Read More »

A Rose By Any Other Name

Easter is a fun time of year, but like with anything, it’s made better with some help from Mr. Mittens.  By the way, obviously one of the two speaking to Jesus is Judas, but the other is Thomas.  It’s implied, but maybe not super clear to some. Jesus seems like a real jovial kind of guy. ↓ TranscriptMITTENS: Justin is ... Read More »
