If you live in Canada and are school aged, or have school aged children, I guess this is a pretty important weekend / Labour Day for you.

I got to take my son to Canada's Wonderland on Friday, and won him a Piplub stuffy from one of those 'squirt water accurately' games. I failed to win the GIGANTIC prizes on the Jacob's ladder, and some other kid won one, so I'm even more embarrassed. I think that kid is going to feel pretty damn boss when he shows off the prize though.

So... You may have noticed that the new layout is finally up. Or you could be completely oblivious, I guess that's an option too. If you did notice, we have Zephirot93 to thank for it, and while we will be tweaking it slightly in the future to address the problems that you may or may not have noticed, we are very grateful for his assistance in this.

As for the comic itself, I've been wanting to get Alexander back into the game, but I couldn't think of anything even remotely funny, and I was afraid that June would gut me for making her draw him as a tin man again...

I guess he didn't pull off the ninja roll as well as he might have thought, that's a pretty brutal wound that was hiding underneath the tin foil, don't you think?

And on that happy note, I'm done for the weekend, so I'm heading off! Take care everyone, and have a great week (especially if you're going back to school!)

I heard that C3PO was the reference for the poses that Skrael used in this comic >.>

Awesome website layout!

That happened to me a while ago.
except it wasn’t my tin foil suit, it was my pants.
And I wasn’t trying to escape mind-controll I was just at school .___.

New layout is awesome. Or will be, once I get used to it. Everything is so not brown now. D:

Also, that header image says two things to me: "BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU" and "Karl looks vary wary, and I hope Chad isn't planning on crushing his head". :)

Except the comments :| They make my eyes hurt D:
Kyo edit delete reply
now that you say it, the font being a bit lighter wouldn't hurt

edit: also there's no way to go back to CF once you finished reading the comments which is kind of annoying for me at least

New site layout looks good!
You might want to check the top banner ad positioning though - on IE7 it looks fine, but on Firefox it's overlapping with the title image.

Skrael: The only way you CAN walk in a tin foil suit is like C3PO :)

Lets see;

If Thomas only had a Brain.
Carl is the Tin Man.

Casting call fro TOGM Wizard of Oz.

Happy Labor Day!

Wasn't C3PO's suit just gold spray painted tinfoil to begin with?


My apologies to those hard core star wars fans that know what his suit was actually made of and might get offended by this comment. =)

@EcM - I'm glad you like it :)

@Kalegiro - That's Alexander's third grade experience in a nutshell ;)

@MarshmallowGherkin - Yes, it takes some getting used to :D

@MatthewJA - Yes, that's something we're going to have to address.. I need more contrast there myself.

@Kyo - Yes there is. The footer still has a link to ComicFury, which is pretty much the only thing that the other site ever had?

@4LS - I thought it was fixed already, but apparently it was a miscommunication. Zeph said he would look into it ;)

@Muchacho NL - And even calling it 'walking' is a bit of a misnomer :)

@T. Gatto - Ooooh, that's a good point. I think I made a joke about courage at one point too... Darn Wizard of Oz, colouring my story with it's awesome technicolour!

@D_Man - Needless to say, I wont be showing that comment to my son ;P

Loving the pwiiiiitty new layout! I see the way Alexander is drawn has evolved slightly since last time (then again, just compare the most recent Chad to the first Chad - he becomes so much more scary and evil, which fits with what you said he'd eventually do). So what's RIPped, just the suit (hopefully not over his chip) or his skin as well?
None of this lot R.I.P. ...
Magravan edit delete reply
Funny you should mention R.I.P., that's what June wanted to use :) He ripped the tinfoil, which shows the wound he took previously.
Kyo edit delete reply
hm yeah, it was broken earlier though so it would actually be displayed besides the content.

In any case, hooray easy navigation

Alex has changed because I found the perfect IRL doppleganger for him, so I now often use him as reference for drawing. IT's great! :D (Robert also has a RL influence as well)
