JEFBOT.382_Balanceon October 14, 2011 at 12:06 am
Since there’s no “Order of the Scarf” (at least not yet,) it appears jefbot doesn’t have to abide by any rules about keeping to one side of his Red/Green (Dark/Light) powers. As long as he keeps things “balanced,” he might just make a formidable opponent. (And, perhaps, a decent Superhero!)
Sorry for the delay between the last strip and this one. Things have been kind of crazy lately, but I believe I’m back on track as we head toward the conclusion of this storyline. (Fingers crossed!) Thanks to those that have been holding the fort while I’ve been away – it feels great to be back!
Exactly what I was hoping Jefbot would do! Now to see if he crashes and burns 😛
This storyline has been so awesome!!!
thanks for the “awesome,” F_F – glad the strip lived up to expectations!
and check you out: you just achieved the Shades of Firsting! wear them well – these have the limited edition “balanced” green/red lenses in ’em!:
If it’s good enough for Spider Jerusalem…
yeah, i’ll probably have to change how his red/green powers glow when he puts on the goggles, just so he won’t resemble SJ too much, Geoff!
Woohoo limited edition shades of firsting! I shall wear them proudly and obnoxiously!
perfect! i wouldn’t have it any other way, F_F!
Well this developement is enough Gray Jedi for me =D
So he’s Guy Gardner with the scarf.
I’m oddly okay with that.
heheh. well, i’m not sure bot’s quite Guy Gardner (yet), but he does have, in essence, two power rings at his disposal, Geoff. 🙂
‘Bot may be finding his inner balance and the true meaning of the power of the scarf, but he also now looks like he’s watching a 3D movie! Oh, well…
if 3D movies came in red & green, i wonder if bot would be able to see the effect without glasses, Jim?
Many have tried, many have failed, my young Padawan. But who is to say you wont be first to succeed?
That cheek is coloring nicely. At least Jefbot has violent sister he can shift the blame to when questioned about it.
*BOOF* – No comics, web or not is complete without sound effects.
Oh, and third and fourth panel? The sense of movement is just great man, you nailed it.
the first to succeed? i think bot’s holding onto hope for exactly that, Maryz!
yeah, at least bot’s cheek isn’t as badly bruised as when cel kicked in the door on him. heheh. he’s kinda used to it by now, i guess.
glad you like the sound fx. call me old school, but i still dig ’em, too!
re: 3rd and 4th panels: big thanks! this storyline’s really letting me play with action more than the others, so i’m glad to hear the sense of movement in the panels is working. 😀
Balance is key. GO JEFFY!!!
thanks, Red! bot has achieved balance! at least for now.
Christmas lights. And now, he could semi-pass for a Christmas Bat. Oh, the puns therein. Amazing strip as usual, Jeff. And really, don’t be worried about the delay. I think most of us understand you have a life outside of appeasing us with your drawing talent ;]
His eyes look like the goggles they have at Morlock Enterprises.
I am instantly reminded of the Christmas bat. LOL
And here I thought balance was my long awaited yellow eyes mode but the hetero-chromatic thing works too. Congrats JB you have mastered your powers, now the scarf is yours to command.
This is awesome. Can’t wait to see how Jefbot will preform with balanced powers.
The power of light and dark, twist and collide.
Betwix these two opposites, a single man resides.
Not abiding by the light, but sworn to push back the dark,
Part scarf, part Asian, part gamer, part actor,
The guardian of the parks, the lord of scrawn,
The weilder of the scarf, the seeker of balance.
He is he that was chosen by the Christmas Bat,
He is Jeff Bot, he is Scrawnscarf.
I LOVE your poem likeacupcake! Have you ever been to Doans on Ventura Blvd? It’s got the best cupcakes! 😉 yummy
Nice balance, great art, and the bad guy went flyin’. What’s not to love?
Well it was the fact that the Jedi and Sith can’t balance that led to the fall of both the Republic and the Empire, Best of luck Bot.
Cool move! And with that red-green balance, it looks like you could be not only superhero Bot, but Olympic Gymnast Bot! 😉
Is it bad that I automatically thought chirstmas with the Red/Green eye thing?
With his powers combined! ALRIGHT! Cool illustration in panel 3 – like the sense of moment he has going there.
Red light, green light anyone?
Looks like he is watchin’ it in Supreme High Quality 3D.
Yes! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the split eyes! We all have a little dark, and sometimes you’ve gotta use it! I love the bungee chop!
Well…it’s better than green mode. But as long as he is running half green he will have weakness…….
I would argue that running full red would make him even weaker. Brute strength alone is never enough, especially if you lack the speed and control to back it up. Plus, nowhere has it been stated that Scrawn is weaker from being half red half green than being full red. It might be a multiplication or addition thing rather than the division thing you think (power of green + power of red for half and half arrangement or power of green * power of red rather than half the power of green plus half the power of red)
Perfect review! And so right, the less you know about these the beettr they are. But even if you knew the entire plot Green’s books would rock cause he’s just that damn good!
This is genius! Love it! 😀
Great Strip Exhaulted One. So tired…more later…maybe.
Hugs and Kisses to those that want them.
WOAAAAAH cool eyes!
so worth the wait. this would make a great superhero comic man. you know what I would do if I was you? when this is all done and you find the time, rewrite this or something and make it out to be comic book style, or just re arrange them to fit onto comic size pages. Don’t know how busy you are or if you’ve got the time for that but it’d be something to sell on the botshop. heck I’d buy it.
Go GREY JEDI’s! maby you can learn from KOTOR’s Jolee Bindo,
the neutral side can kick but still and lecture you about peace. BOYAH!
And a hero was born…
Is JB the One from the Prophesy who will bring balance to the Scarf?!
…. apparently so.
He got that down pretty quickly, which means something’s gonna screw him over big time. It’s a thing that happens, as you should well know working in movies as you do. I eagerly await the catastrophe. Muahahahahahaaaaa!
Glad to have you back safe and (relatively) sound Botman. 🙂
Also, if he/you grew a third eye that was blue, you would be visible-spectrum Scrawn! Beams of pure color will be at his/your command! MWAHAHAHAHA-*cough*
Sorry, slipped into my mad scientist persona for a moment there.
Anywho, it’s good to have you back, JefBot.
Ah, excellent! I love the balance here…and the scarf-slinging/whack-a-mole combination makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. 😀
Awesome strip, as usual. Now that ‘bot has achieved balance, is it time for him to go up against his greatest foe? Scarfbot vs. the aliens that took Musashi!!! Mayhaps with the return of Cel as well…
SNAP!! now the tree limb is supposed to break

In other news, my friend made public his Minecraft server about an hour prior to this post. You can dress up as creatures, and the dogs are re-skinned as xenomorphs from Aliens.
The address to the server can be found on the forum post here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/720142-the-definitive-minecraft-experience/
Jefbot’s his yin to his own yang!
