JEFBOT.178_And the Winner is…on September 11, 2009 at 4:53 am
Leaving you with a sweet one this time (and a double decker to boot!).
As many of you know, I’m hitting the pause button on this storyline for the next few weeks while I’m away in Michigan shooting Grey Skies, but I’ll be back in October to wrap this arc up! I’ll be leaving you in good hands in the meantime though, with some awesome guest strips generously provided by a few readers (if you’d like to do a guest strip it’s not too late! click here for details) and a few of my favorite webcomic buddies. I think it’ll be interesting to see how others will put their own spin on this strip, so make sure and check those comics out starting next week. I’ll be blogging from the set as much as possible, with photos and maybe some video, to let you know how things are going with the film, so be sure to check the JEFblog when you can. See you in a few weeks and thanks for all the support!
I *LOVE* all the action and facial expressions going on in this one! Do I detect a hint of nuclear glowingness on that Odie pez dispenser though?!? 😛 Everyone has their game faces on, but it just so happens that JB and Cel brought a better game. FTW! This was an awesome one Jeff, and I love that last panel! Nothing like snuggling up next to that special someone during a sunset. *le sigh*
OH! And have fun filming out in Michigan! (By the way I’m not too terribly far away from Michigan.:P ) Kinda funny to think that you’re gonna be on the east coast, so make sure you dress warm enough because the nights are starting to get that autumn chill to them. Looking forward to reading, and possibly seeing vids of your time on set, as well as the gust strips while you’re away. Again, have fun and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. 😉
Ahwwww… Spanky beat me to it. By the way, I dig *le sigh*.
Yet another speechless one, yet another jewel. The Jolenes ere cool but just not cool enough. For some reason they seem to me like someone who can be friend with Xinda.
Last pic is just sooo sweet… Im geting all girlly giggly and Im a guy. Need I say more?
AWWWWWW -hugs Bot- That is so adorable. ^^ Have as much fun as you can in Michigan. I’ve been living here for 19 years. It is possible to find some, but you have to get creative sometimes.
its strips like this that reinforce that one picture = 1000 words. The play of bot’s hopeful to cel’s intensity. amazing.
(see…it wasn’t that bad…) YES!!!!! Geeks and a sunset………
cute. very cute
Oh, my god. This is killing me with its adorableness on so many levels. <3
Excellent, could that be the fable +1 Odie Pez dispenser of Lurve wreathed in ethereal light? I have to admit that until i put my specs on i thought the first pannel was JB’s mathematically calculated trajectory, damn my failing eyesight.
Yes! You won the Pez!!!! I always knew you would… I love the brilliant color in the strip, but I have to say my favorite frame is your over hand throw… such passion and energy!! I also love the two of you sitting on the dock… I can’t wait to see a kiss…
Love the whole non-verbal event! Great strip!
I’ve been saying for a while that an odie pez dispenser will bring us all closer together.
Have fun with grey skies, buddy!
Citing the inmortal Michael… Nerds in love! Nerds in love!!!!!! XD
Good luck in Michigan! Have a blast and come with more ideas for your comic! Man, those… “Jolenes”? or whatever their names is… they seem so plastic! But I agree with Maryz. They seem like they could get along with Xinda just fine 😛
Those two “twins” from the Jolenes scare the crap out of me. It’s like I’m watching the JEFBOT lite version of “The Shining.”
“Come play with us, BOT, forever and ever and ever.”
All jibblies aside, super cute ending!
Love the Odie Pez dispenser. I’m with you…I haven’t drawn Odie (or Garfield) since I was little! 🙂
Truly awesome! Great execution of a silent comic, and kudos for the effort put into the additional panels!
I was wondering how the Odie Pez dispenser you tweeted about was going to tie in. I love that Jeffbot used a Pokeball for his ball. 🙂 And the last panel is awesome and sweet. Especially because Cel is the one leaning on him. This gives me a big 😀
Can’t wait to see the pics from your shoot. Have a great time!
Holy crikes! The Jolenes look like alien robots come to steal our awesome earth memorabilia for dire purposes unknown! It’s a good thing Jefbot won, I haven’t seen Odie since I started reading Garfield Minus Garfield.
What would alien robots want with a pez dispenser anyway?
that morph ball, genius.
Love the Metroid morph ball
Where’s that sappy music when you need it….*sorry just the only word I can think of*
Everything about this one is hardcore! Such an intense game.. beautiful colors… and cuddles?! Does it get better? I’ll miss the updates- hope you have a great trip!
correction: I’ll miss YOUR updates. But guest strips are always fun ^_^
Love your work, as always, and since no one’s mentioned it.. very nice touch with the blurred balls adding an awesome sense of depth and motion. ^_^
Incredible! Love the action, love the look of the other team members, and I LOVE the last panel! Beer Pong-the greatest of all aphrodisiacs. 😉
Love the last panel JB. it was good choice to leave out any conversation. Now make a wallpaper out of it. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good strip, all the best for the Movie!
Yeah, wallpaper would be neat.
Hehe perfect ending, great wordless panels and there’s the sunset you promised. Great work Jeff, can’t wait to see you back after your shoot.
d’awww <3 love it! =D
cel’s using a bakugan ball isn’t she?
Are those two girls a homage to the Katayanagi twins from Scott Pilgram vs. the World? Or am I just <3in your comic so much I am reading into it too deep?
