JEFBOT.580_The Christmas Bat VII_Epilogueon January 11, 2017 at 12:12 pm
I couldn’t resist this minty, short and sweet epilogue to The Peppermint Elf storyline. Thanks for indulging me!
Now that this admittedly long-in-the-making storyline is complete and The Christmas Bat has returned to his dark cave to hibernate, I think it’s safe to move back to our regular programming. I can’t say exactly when that will happen – I just picked up some new work that’s going to keep me busy for about a month (yay!) – but this year I’m going to try and continue to make new comics when I can. Getting back to writing and drawing JEFbot and talking with you readers again has been a ton of fun over the past few weeks and I don’t want to stop now. Here’s hoping I’ll be back in February *fingers crossed* so we can finally move Mu and bot out of that ominous cliffhanger and on with their epic adventure! See ya then.
If you missed the beginning of this story, go here:
• The Christmas Bat VII : The Peppermint Elf
Previous tales of the Christmas Bat:
The Christmas Bat I • The Christmas Bat II • The Christmas Bat III • The Christmas Bat IV • The Christmas Bat V • The Christmas Bat VI
I feared something like this! Poor little mischievous elf
Triple update! Wooo!
your fears were founded, Flame_fingers! hope you didn’t eat any holiday cookies this year. heheh. and check you out: you’ve reclaimed the Shades of Firsting! start of another record run or just a one-off? hmMmm. either way, wear them well! these come with an infinite dental floss dispenser for obvious reasons: 😎
May it be the first of many! Just as with this christmas streak 🙂
Little elf between your teeth huh XD
glad to see you’ve got a wicked sense of humor, too, Balorth. heheheheh. >:)
Luckily the only cookies I had this Christmas were ones I made myself. 😛
ha! it’s the only way to be sure, Ashley P. 😀
Nice to see you back. Been checking in every month or so to see what was up and happened to land on the exact day you posted the last part. Timing. ^.^
yay! great timing. thanks for keeping the faith! 😉
And thanks for that link back to history; reminds me how much I’m missing JEFbot, and your beautiful artwork.
awww, thanks for the compliment, Ian C.! looking forward to drawing jefbot and Musashi again – going to need to start sketching them again as i’m a bit out of practice. 🙂
Yessss, Story completion, now I can go back to hiding in the shadows and just reading >:)
heh. just be ready to crawl out of the shadows once the next strip gets posted, HiTS! 😉
Thank you. I only made fudge for Christmas last year so no peppermint cookies. Sounds like you will be busy, but busy makes happy. As Spock says “live well and prosper”
busy definitely makes happy, Kris – if i have too much time with my own thoughts i find i go slightly mad. O_o
Omg. That’s barbaric. I love it.
ha! thought you might like it, DJ.
Heh heh. Who knew peppermint came from elves. Do they normally just squeeze them? Or is it elf sweat? *shudder* I just really need to stop this line of pondering while I’m behind. 😉
haha! not sure where the peppermint… essence(?) comes from, Shanna, but it seems to be concentrated in the elf’s entire body since it got into all those cookies. i think this means he had peppermint blood. MmmmmMmm…
Peppermint is a plant. My mom used to keep some in her garden because it repels some species of insects.
Sounds like it’s time to do a binge re-read! Yesss….
YESSSSSS! enjoy, Rebecca! started doing a re-read myself – been a while since i’ve been through all the strips. 🙂
And that is why I don’t eat Peppermint chip cookies! Boycott Peppermint Cookies! Save the Elves!
Sillyness aside, Glad to see more comics from ya, bot! Here’s to a reboot of jefbot: All Dysfunctions Normal!
ha! i think it’s a good idea to boycott those peppermint cookies, hobojoenme! at least for the time being. heheh.
and, thanks! was nice to be able to make more comics and complete this storyline over the break. excited to get back to the JEFbot Prime story when i’m done with my current gig. 😀
Well this went somewhere cheerfully dark.
heheheh. “cheerfully dark” is a great way to describe it, Maryz.
I was going through my normal morning routine when the name “Cornfather” rolled into my mind. I decided to check on the site and was overjoyed by the continuation of my favorite chiroptera! I’m so glad you’re back, Jeff!
hey, so great to see you again, SoulMan! love that some psychic “Cornfather” wave drifted through your mind and led you back here. hope to have more comics up, soon(ish)!
Welcome back. Hope to see more from you
hey, jefbotfan#300! wow, the whole gang’s nearly back here, now. that’s great, cuz i’m planning on making more strips on my next break!
Hey jefbot. Good to hear from you. Waiting in anticipation on your next strip. Btw, the quality time t-shirt, is it available in red?
no on the red shirt, jf#300 – i think there are blue and brown versions still but the rest are black.
*Dusts off old favorites folder* Holy Sc#@t! Jeffbot’s still running?!?!?!?
ha! still keeping the servers up but haven’t posted anything new in a while, RanDumGai (just got that). maybe in the near future if i can find some time?
