Christmas Tales

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Miserable Comic! This year’s downbeat Christmas special is a sequel of sorts to Becky’s sci-fi comic What We Left Behind. All IZS strips take place in the same universe, and while you have to dig a little to find the connections, they’re definitely there. In line with strips like…

A Very Krampus Christmas

Kristof isn’t here to do the write-up for this one, He’s in a play at the moment for A Christmas Carol. I’m not seeing it. Because it’s got ghosts in it, and at this time of year the only ghost I want in my life is the Holy one. The office at work is winding…

What You Really Want for Christmas

Tiny Dan is perhaps the best thing about 2018, it’s just a shame it’s taken me this long to bring him to your attention. He’s very shy you see. The year is coming to an end and it’s about the time we start reflecting on things and asking the big questions, Is it all worth…

Beautiful Things

And sometimes we’re just scared of breaking that one beautiful thing right in front of us. I threw this script in our shared doc with just the words, no context or guidance. I wasn’t expecting the direction it ended up going in at all, but I’m stoked with the result. Becky and Izak have been…

The Yard

I was kicking this idea around with Matt and this was his alternative version which I think sums the whole bully process up quite nicely. “Oh honey, the names are just because you’ve been arbitrarily identified as weak and are being sacrificed so they can gain experience in making the kind of social bonds that…

Little Faith

An actual conversation between myself and Izak: Izak, “Baby, help me think of a coooooomic” Becky, “Ok…what subject do you want it to be on?” Izak, “That’s not how it works-” “What do you mean that’s not how it works? I just thought about caterpillars until this comic idea came to me” ^see above “Well…

Cloud Nine

I’m currently writing this comic up somewhere in the upper North Island on a lifestyle block owned by our good friend Pepper ‘n Peter. Four cattle gates seperate us from the main road and our closest neighbours are a family of ducks we’ve been tasked with taking care of, God help them. PnP have forsaken…

Train Wreck

Beware what you say to artists, for they will remember it and use it later. Or, y’know, just roll with it and revel in your 5 minutes of fame. I took the train into work every morning for years until relatively recently and have come across a fair number of incidents, delays and hold-ups over…

Pet Friendly + Fallout 76 Review

I had a LAN party last night playing a lot of Golf With Friends and Mario Party, so I don’t have a lot to say right now, so instead I’m going to hand things off to Nile Bijoux who has brought us another review. This time for the ah, disastrous Fallout 76. The PC setup…

More Than Life

These things are a sliding scale ya know. Maybe pick something pertinent to your own life before going to the tried and true generic options. I literally just got back from seeing The Wombats at The Powerstation tonight. It’s always been a personal goal to go to The Powerstation, an infamous venue here in Auckland.…
