Today’s strip was filmed on location at Jon Arbuckle’s house.
Well, this is it, true believers! One full year since we started this obscure abortion of a comic strip we all know and don’t love as Too Tough for TV. It’s been a hell of a ride thus far. When I look back over the archives (which I do frequently in an attempt to reassure my ego or to show some unwilling passerby the entirety of my work), I feel a sense of
disgust pride. Sure, the quality of the work is often parabolic. The art is rushed or the joke is flimsy and verbose, but damned if we weren’t on time every Wednesday. A full year with no missed updates gives me a sense of professional satisfaction in this weekly comic strip about Hitler and 9/11 conspiracy theories on a website nobody visits. We’ve stuck to our guns, for better or for worse, and we’ve tried to do all sorts of jokes. But we must continue to diversify, experiment and improve. A new year is looming!
Over the next year, expect far more storylines and jokes that don’t require intimate simultaneous knowledge of 1980s television and 19th century history/literature. Certainly, we’re not referencing McDonald’s mascots and Oscar Wilde works in the upcoming weeks!
I’d like to take time to thank all the little people involved in making this strip possible: Warwick Davis, Billy Barty, Marty Klebba, Bilbo Baggins, Mascarita Sagrada, Verne Troyer and Tom Cruise.
I’d also like to take time to thank all of the other people involved: Dallas and Momo, who have saved our asses with last-minute coloring and Photoshop assistance many a time. I’d also like to thank Futatron and Mikey for their help getting Guest Month done. I’d also like to thank Petes and some of the other VZW crew for being among the first to read the strip and provide feedback.
I’d thank my
loving life partner creative partner, G…but fuck that guy, yo. (j/k lol eat a dick kid)
For those of you who read my rants each week and have supported the strip, even if all you did was drive up our hits, thanks. The next year we hope to expand our readership and spread the word around. I hope all of you reading this can help make Too Tough for TV a better comic by passing it around to your friends like some sort of viral video sensation or only slightly used hypodermic needle. Don’t forget to comment and leave feedback, noting what works and what doesn’t. We’d be grateful and we’d all be better off for it. Not as better off as if we stopped making these awful jokes, but fuck it.
Thanks for the memories,
See you, Space Cowboy,
Good night and good luck,
Move bitch, get out the way,
get out the way bitch,
get out the way,
PS: This is canon.
