First of all, I want to welcome all the new readers who have found their way here from the Phoenix Comicon, where I was at all weekend, handing out postcards, selling merch and meeting both new and longtime fans! I’m writing up a blog post now that I’ll be posting tomorrow about what a fantastic time I had there. Unfortunately, I just returned home from the convention yesterday, then worked at my job all day today, so I haven’t had any time to get back to the drawing board (aka drawing tablet) for Monday’s strip. Rest assured, although I’d like nothing more than to power through the night to get a new strip done (I’m creatively energized from interacting with all the readers, friends and peers, at the con!) I’m just physically exhausted, so I’m going to try and go to bed early tonight so I can shake off my zombie form, get back to my normal self, and get Friday’s strip done in a timely fashion. In the meantime, I’m hoping to finish my Phoenix trip write-up tomorrow, so come back for that, and then I’ll see you on Friday when we get back to Mombot’s deadly raptor-toe!
Again, WELCOME, WELCOME new readers! And thanks to my regulars for all the support you’ve shown over the past week, and for holding down the fort while I was away.
I figured you were tired. No problem, man! 🙂
big thanks, Insectoid! i was completely run down, but feeling much more awake and lucid today and can’t wait to start drawing again!
Heh, awesome how you have drawn Michaels belly 😀
yeah, he pretty much has the Power of Scrawn these days, Eddie, since he lost close to eighty pounds! had to draw in the belly. 🙂
Yeah, I noticed a long time ago, he looks awesome
I was going to say, Wow, Michael looks awesome! :O I knew you’d said he’d lost weight, but wow! Congrats to him! And I’m glad the Phoenix Comicon was such a huge success. Wish I could have been there! Oh well, one day you’ll go to a convention I’m attending and I’ll be able to support you with something more than a statistic on the page. 😀
Get some sleep, brother, and we’ll see you Friday.
when i get the blog post up, i’ll take away the drawings so you can see just how awesome, Kate! it’s pretty amazing how much he’s changed.
and i look forward to meeting you at a comicon!
It’s too damn bad you’re not making PAX. I am making my pilgrimage this year, as hopefully next I won’t be able to because I’ll have classes to be teaching. Tell you what, I’ll tell you what doctoral program I get into and you can plan your con schedule around that. >:3
(Also, good to see in comments further down that you’re planning on updating the store sooner rather than later. I too am looking at the new merch going, “whhyhyyy so far awwwayyyy”. It makes me whine. People don’t like when I whine.)
lol @ sick bot. haven’t seen him since the hacking incident
that, and he was back after the ECCC con, acolyte! 🙂
Goooood Morning Boteers!
*puts on her Tour Guide Wings*
Good Morning and Welcome to the new folks out there. You are now entering The World of Jefbot. It’s a world full of magical creatures like Harem Members and Mancubs, Botlings and TCB’s, Aliens and ferrets.
As you can see, *gestures above head and slightly to the left* we have an extensive Archive area. If you would lke to catch up with all the story lines, this is the place to start. If you look under the “New Readers” area, you will get an introduction to all the players in the game so to speak, you will get to know a little bit about The Exhaulted One (You know him as Jefbot…for now) and some of his favorite storylines.
The comments area. This area is one of my favorites (After the comics themselves). This is where the fans come alive. We interact, not only with the Exhaulted One, but also with each other. You will meet other members of the JefBoteers Family and make connections with people from across the country as well as around the World! Please feel free to join us. (That totally sounded all cult recruiter-ish…Sorry!)
HA! LOVE the guided tour for new members, Pixie! i couldn’t have done it better, myself. if i ever make a JEFBOTland amusement park, i’m hiring you as Head Tour Guide. or Prime JEFboteer. or Master Crowd Wrangler. we’ll think of something. 😀
Glad you like it Bot. YAY I have a title of some kind.
Pixie, did you have extra sugar in your coffee/tea this morning? The only reason I ask is because that was hilarious. 😉
Awwwww FijiMan it’s my pleasure to give you a smile dahhhhlink.
cult hmm.. star trek had a cult like following so must not be a bad thing and so did starwars in fact i guess were a nother notch in cult classics then congrats jefbot your a cult classic now
Awesome. Cant wait for the blog.
thanks, Maryz! hoping to have that up later today. tomorrow at the latest.
Nice : D
Can not wait to see the nest strip…
Hope Cel comes back, miss her already xD
cel won’t be back quite yet, nr2. she’s still out looking for the crash site, apparently. 🙂
Welcome back, Bot! I am so sad we didn’t make it to the con, but we will plan early for next year if you think you will be there again. I have wanted to go to that con for a while, and your being there ups its appeal to the Have to Go level.
I hope you will be getting the Bot Shop up and running with new merch soon. Seeing it all in the con pics is almost more than I can stand! If not, I may have to send you an e-mail and see if we can make a little off-site deal for some shirts and a book!
i appreciate your attempts at attending the con, Shanna! will definitely be back next year as i’ve already put in my deposit, and hopefully that means i’ll have dibs on a better space, so the convention will be even better!
will be working on the new BOTshop this weekend! will hopefully be able to get it operational in the next couple of weeks. (but yeah, we can always talk offsite if it takes longer than planned.)
I’m one of those new viewers who met you at the con! My co-host and I (we were the “button people”) really enjoyed meeting you and talking to you about the strip. I spent a lot of time at the office yesterday reading the archives and am really glad to be on the bandwagon.
Hope we’ll see you at next year’s con!
hey, i’m happy to see you again, Steve! (if only virtually. heheh.) thanks for going through the archives, and i’ll definitely be coming back to Phoenix next year for the con! 🙂
Feel the heat as they say.
definitely been feeling it, Anime fan!
I will eventually get to one of the cons that you attend… Eventually…
And I”m glad that I’m not the only one that noticed that you had to DRAW Cornfather’s belly since he’s lost so much weight! 😀
I hope y’all get the rest you need and I look forward to the much anticipated blog and strip 😀
heheh. yeah, Michael just didn’t look like The Cornfather without that belly, Ky!
feeling much better today, thanks, and anxious to get back to writing and drawing! 🙂
Glad to see that you’re back. It was getting a bit too quite around here. 🙂
Heh, the pictures cute jeff. Glad to see it all went well dude!
rest up then come on back! we missed ya!
i saw you guys there and i was gonna buy a book but when i was gonna go back down and buy it my mom came and we had to go so i couldnt walk back down there D:
Really wish I could’ve come up from Tucson for the con, but it wasn’t in the cards.
Here’s hoping for next time, hm? ^^;
*facepalms* I swear you’re on crack sometimes, Pixie. You better be glad you look great in a corset. 😛
Why did you not hit the reply button to say this?
HA! No Crack here…Crack is WHACK! *twitch* Maybe it was a good night’s sleep or just happy to see our Great Leader making a bigger name for himself.
Repeat after me..One of us. One of Us. One of us…Just kidding new Boteers!
You’re going to scare them away. We need fresh meat.
Glad you had such a wonderful time. Welcome newbies! And have a good night’s rest, Jeff!
energy drink? looks like you’re in need of one. Good job lasting through it though JB.
CF been doing a lot of lifting at the con? His arms seem really veiney… O_O The only times I’ve ever seen arms like that is after hauling a 300 pound table from one side of the house, to the other, and up stairs and other heavy lifting.
Hope you had a great time at the con!
Also, noticed in the newest Heather the Vampire video Liam was wearing a jefbot shirt! Haha, gotta love that!
Hey it was great meeting and talking with you guys at the con,
after talking with you guys i thought i should start joining in on the comments,
and the power of chub shirt i bought off of you guys on the last day is still awesome
Yknow, Jeffbot’s face really reminds me of gorillaz animation (second phase)
I thought that too, way back in the beginning. It’s probably why I clicked on the banner ad in the first place. 🙂
