JEFBOT.567_Rabbit, Runon November 22, 2013 at 11:59 pm
Today’s JEFbot comic offers a glimpse of what it would be like to ride a giant, lumbering rabbit through dark, twisting tunnels cut beneath several tons of ancient dirt and stone. Harrowing? Yes. But I’d be hard-pressed to pass up the ride if given such an opportunity.
Go Jefbot GO!
first of all: what’s up, JP!? and, secondly: yes! GO, GO, JEFBOT!
and check you out: you just achieved the Shades of Firsting! wear them well – these are guano-proofed for improved high-speed tunnel traveling:
Hey there sorry I haven’t commented in a while. I’ve been around reading everything on here, and on facebook. I don’t know if you knew or not I got a double lung transplant back in January of this year. I got out in Feb but then had a major set back and was in the hospital for 3 months, getting out in May. So since then I’ve been slowly trying to work back into normalcy. Though I feel better than I have in over 10 years! I can breath again, better than I remember, and I have my strength back, being able to carry in groceries again, I’ve even been able to gain weight up to 189lbs now, which is good for me. Anyways don’t worry I’ve always been here and if you ever want to send me a message on FB I’m there under the same name. I hope you’re doing well and having fun.
I feel like there should be epic music playing. But this looks really neat.
Bounding through tunnels to the Indiana Jones Theme I think fits nicely
yup. that’d work!
i, too, wish for more mixed media type stuff to go with the comics, DJ! i’d actually love to do a short animated JEFbot clip with voice and a soundtrack, just for the fun of it. maybe someday!
Might be a little bit low-tech, but I remember one webcomic I read forever ago would occasionally do animated gif comics that said “hit play on the youtube clip below in 3…2…1…NOW!”
that’d work, JOE! thinking about doing some low-tech Vine clips, too, just to experiment a bit.
Works so well with this music:
yes! especially toward the end, Graypatch. would be fun to put together with some animation of Grim, bot, Mu, et al. bounding through the cave.
Whoa! Absolutely stunning!
awww… thanks, Mombot! now you know what i was babbling about the other day. 🙂
Bot must be velcroed on the back of that thing.
that, or he has very strong thigh muscles, p.j. day!
Odd that you should mention restraints because I now need to repair the seat belt in my van. I admit I find it hard to take sides on whether or not a seat belt should be worn in vehicles because I was in one accident where a seat belt saved me from being thrown through a windshield and I came close to being in another where a seat belt endangered me by preventing my quick escape from the other vehicle (fortunately the driver regained control of their vehicle in time). My research tells me that a seat belt is more likely to help than to harm so the best I can do is play the odds.
i, concur, in regards to seatbelt safety, Rainey. i, too, was in an accident where i was saved from grievous harm by wearing a seatbelt. unfortunately, a person in the other car wasn’t wearing their seatbelt. 🙁
It’s beautiful! I love the look on Jefbots face!
thanks, Kris! glad you noticed bot’s expressions. 🙂
Such a badass rabbit.
indeed, Relique77. i wouldn’t mind having one myself, actually.
I wonder how tempted Bot is to say “Are we there yet?”
Also, don’t forget The Bat.
ha! methinks Grim and Mu wouldn’t be too pleased with that, Fijiman.
and, yes! The Bat! >:)
Huh. I thought he’d be doing some sort of scurry thing, not ‘hoppity hop”. Shows what I know 😛
yeah, Grimmy’s more of a “bounder” than a “scurrier,” JGT. either way, makes for a fun/terrifying ride!
*Sonic X first theme song playing in the distance*
good call, DAS!
Naturally, Grimmy decided the Top Secret Emergency Protocol Tunnels couldn’t have an escalator or those little motorized walkways like they have in airports because he just HAD to have an opportunity to show off and do EPIC POSING!
Not that I’m complaining, mind you (though Jefbot’s expression in panel 2 makes it look like this is the 20th time Grimmy’s had a “look at me, I’m so cool” moment).
maybe Grimmy has some cameras set up throughout the tunnels to capture his epic poses, JOE! now i’m thinking i should’ve made the panels look like polaroid prints… 😉
That looks very cool. Now I want a giant cave rabbit. I wonder if Santa would bring me one, along with a year’s supply of whatever he eats.
Oh yea, and that bottom panel could totally be a poster, button, shirt, etc.
ha! you should definitely ask Santa for a cave rabbit, shanna. he’d probably appreciate a break from all the pony, puppy and kitten requests. and if you get one, you have to send me pics. 😀
It would be an experience, to say the least.
one you’d never forget, W-T!
I… feel inspired to make an electronic song.
To the land of MIDI I go!
I’ll get back to you on that when I’m done.
Shouldn’t this strip be called “JEFBOT.567_Rabbit, Run” and not just Rabbit, Run?
oop. thanks for the tip! this is what happens when i release a strip in the wee hours of the mornin’. fixing now.
i love MIDI music, ROM! if you make something, please share with us. 😀
‘bot 6 started to look a bit like ‘bot 7 in the last panel.
yeah, when his hair’s getting blown back, he tends to look that way, Blunz. bot 7 must use hair gel.
Ooooh! Nice panels! Cool looking tunnel too.
thanks, GB! glad you like.
Looks like ‘bot’s got the hang of it by the final panel—just in time!
The fluidity of these scene is stunning, Jeff. I SEE them moving. We—uh, I mean, YOU—need a kickstarter plan and an animation studio . . . .
that’s right, Sarah W – he was a bit uneasy in the first couple panels but he’s definitely feeling good by the final panel.
and, YES! thanks for the enthusiasm. i have a couple big Kickstarter ideas but i might start small first and see how it goes. would love to independently animate JEFbot, though. that’s the dream. 😀
I love this one just for the shift in attitude. You can see Jefbot going from “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA GOING TO DIE!” to “Okay getting the hang of it.” all the way to “ALright… Now time to pose like a badass”
thanks for noticing the shift, Raron! bot should definitely take a moment for a selfie, methinks. 🙂
New hairstyle at the end?
heh. nope, just the wind kickin’ his hair up a notch, Tystarr. it’ll be back to normal when they slow down. 😉
