Officially, the Cornfather is singing, “Nerds in love… Nerds in love…” to the tune of Edelweiss, but feel free to suggest any tune you think would fit those lyrics. 🙂
And since this strip references XBOX Live, check me out talking about video games as a guest on Just Another Game Site Podcast.
And again, sorry about the delay on getting this strip up. If you’d like to see the placeholder sketch that was up in place of the strip yesterday, click here.
Thanx for the sneak peek. 🙂
no prob, jA!
Ooookaaaaaaaaay… the Cornfather is asking for a painful and slow death. I got some pirahnas here, jef, if you’re interested.
Aw, man. I wonder what will smokey-eyes-cel will think of all this. She’s gonna call Jef a perv for the rest of his life!
CEL: WTF? I told you NO hugs, perv! And now you’re asking me out?! Daaaaaaaaad!! We’re is the shotgun?!
heheh. yes, between this strip and the next one, the Cornfather’s definitely pushing all the wrong buttons on jefbot, Sonitan. might hafta borrow those piranhas… 😉
Oh wow.. you need to put up sneak peeks like that more often! I love seeing the raw goodness of the beginnings of any form of art, no matter what it is. (As you know, I am fascinated with the start to finish process.. so this was a real treat for me! Thank you!) Aww look at you all cute and handsome on your webcam. I’m sure this strip is going to be well worth the wait! And by the way, congrats on 160! (I know, celebrating a bit early.)
awww… thanks for the “handsome” comment, Spanky. easy to look good when my face is only about 100 pixels tall, though. heheh. and thanks for your interest in the art process, too. one of these days i’ll do a blog post or a vid about how i get from “start” to “finish.” 😀
podcast sounds great so far… You should definitely do this more often. 🙂
thanks, man! i enjoyed every minute of it, so if you’ll have me back, i’ll make the time. 🙂
Aww damn I was hoping it would be up before I leave for my grandmother’s internet free house for the weekend. >< maybe my phone will cooperate and I can see it on my phone’s browser. ^^
sorry ’bout that, DJ. hope you had fun at your grandma’s!
Get to work, lazy bones!
i’m workin’, i’m workin’! i need some of Stan’s pen-speed magic!
Hey Jeff, completely unrelated, but are you going to be at Comic-Con? We’ll have a drink (and maybe talk a little business) if you are.
i couldn’t get a table so i’m probably not going to the con itself, but i may just take a drive down to san diego to drink and hang with some buddies like yourself. 🙂 hotel rooms are probably hard to come by at this point, though.
Well at least you took the trouble to colour the sneak peek!
i always draw the characters with different colored pencils, speearr, but i did do some filling and erasing to separate bot and corn from the background, otherwise it would’ve just looked like a scribbled mess. heheh.
you are a nerd in love. love the strip!
thanks for the love, skinny!
Sonitan: “I got some pirahnas here, jef, if you’re interested.”
I’ll even throw in my sharks with frikkin’ lasers on their heads too! </Dr. Evil>
Jeff, don’t let the Cornfather get you down. There is *nothing* wrong with nerds being in love. God knows we could sure use more little nerds in the world these days…
i agree, reynard61 – nothing wrong with nerd love! people are just jealous cuz us nerds and geeks rule the world, right?
haha, great strip. I’ve noticed nowadays that we no longer give out phone numbers as much as we hand out Facebook and Myspace names.
The name ImitationAsian came about some years back, I can’t remember how but I know it was because I’m half Filipino and people would always make jokes about it being “fake asian” so Imitation Asian came about and it’s been my tag ever since. Glad you like it, although I’m not too sure if it tastes like imitation Crab…maybe milkfish? 😀
so true, ImitationAsian. in fact, on my latest business card for JEFbot, i have my Twitter and email address, but no phone number! is a phone number too personal nowadays? and thanks for the background on your nick – i had to know (and knowing is half the battle)! 🙂
Oh, Cornfather rules in this strip. Sure, Jeffbot is right he suck, but who cares his reaction is so funny.
I must confess, I was afraid of what are you baking for us this time when I saw the teaser but I love the pie.
Third panel is the best, ironicaly enough its the suspense panel… But the look on their faces are priceless. Jeffbot thinking about Inviting Cel and Cornfather about Nerdylove…
Kudos to this strip.
thanks, Maryz! glad you saw the strip as pie: pie’s my favorite; much better than cake. 😉 and glad you liked that 3rd panel – i actually think that’s my best rendition of the Cornfather like, ever. 😀
I love the change in emotion in your face! From anger to love in two frames! So funny too! I’m so ready to see Jefbot have his first web-comic kiss! …it would be the first kiss right? Excellent job Jefbot!
i’m not gonna guarantee there’s gonna be a kiss, funnyshaffer, but if one happens then yes, it would be jefbot’s first kiss within these pages!
Lawl, I love this strip.
thanks for the lawl, Nat!
Perfection, bot. I couldn’t have written and drawn it better myself. …seriously. Great work, man. As always.
thanks, mike! man, i’d seriously *love* to see you do a JEFbot strip. i’ll post it and everything.
Do you really sing like that, Michael?
he does. maybe not those exact lyrics, but he does sing like a crazy person, Stan.
The Cornfathers’ body is getting weirder and weirder looking, his stomach looks like he ate a small calf. I like how you said “you suck” 🙂 ps. is jefbot blushing?
the Cornfather always looks like he’s swallowed several animals, Xin; i think you must be confusing him with his slimmed-down counterpart in real life, Michael Cornacchia.
GO BOT!!! my boyfriend and I play pokémon together all the time. its kinda fun ^^
we should so swap pokémon using the wifi connection, DJ. 😀
This is awesome. I want to hear a live rendition of Nerds in Love by the Cornfather!! That needs to be on a t-shirt!
be careful what you wish for, John K. heheh.
dear god…..JB…why do you like to torture and burn my eyes…..first it was the buttercar incident…..now its this????why oh why did you have to make CF all lovey dovey eyes…..?????/arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….eyes…my eyes……also….nerds in love ..nerds in love….JB and Celci sitting under a tree……k.i.s.s.i.n.g………lolz……i like how the the strip ended with YOU SUCK….
ha! just wait ’til you see the Cornfather at the beach… in a speedo, JF3!!! kidding!!! …or am i?
Hey I’m new to your comic and I’m digging the art work! I’ll be back…
thanks, D. – i just checked out your strip and the feeling’s mutual! thanks!
I think he should sing Geeks in Love by Lemon Demon. Epic song.
ha! just check it out on YouTube, Mugdha. great song! 😀
This was super cute, and CF is hilarious! That whole strip had a summery feel to it, and I liked it. Thank you again for the sneak peek!
arigato, spanky! any time!
geeks in love
Actually, you could have made him sing Geeks in Love by Lemon Demon. Would have fit well, and increased their popularity.
