2014: Year in Review

2014/12/28

Well, another year’s gone by.  I’d like to think this was a relatively eventful year for Jimmy Jone.  I got the new website up back in March, and since then, I’ve posted six whole issues.  Sure, 2 months go by between issues (it took almost all year for Diana to break up with Jimmy!) but at least I’ve got a consistent rhythm going for the creation aspect of things.  If I can keep up the pace, you’ll get another six issues next year!  For those of you keeping track at home, Jimmy is now in the second semester of his sophomore year.  Here’s what you can expect for next 2015:

  • Jimmy gets scared!
  • The return of everybody’s third-tier superhero sidekick, Socrateen!
  • 100% more Campus Hobo!
  • The return of the prank war!
  • A mime!
  • And, if I did things right, at least a couple of jokes!

And of course, if I get a kidney in 2015, I may even put out more than 6 issues.

Another thing I’ve been doing is listening to music while I draw.  I’ve been systematically listening to every album Spotify has for specific years.  I finished up my journey through 1974 earlier this year, and I just completed 1982 this month.  Big whoop, you’re thinking.  But wait!  I put together some playlists of my favorite music from those years!

1974

1982

For 2015, I’m doing 1971, and then 1979, if I get that far.  I’ll let you know when there’s playlists!

I plan to put out the next Jimmy Jone comic (#66) at the end of February. I say “plan to” because I know better than to promise things on the Internet by a specific time.

See you in 2015!

News? Not likely!

Hello there, Jimmy Jone fans!  It’s only been about 7 months between posts this time–I’m getting quicker!

It’s been a slow year.  For those of you readers who don’t know me personally (do you exist?) I’m waitlisted for a kidney transplant. I’ve been waiting almost 3 years and could wait another year or two more.  In terms of the comic, that basically means I’m lucky if I produce two pages a week… which comes out to about 5 or 6 issues per year.  But what can you do, huh?

Eventually, I’d like to have a higher output rate… some new printed editions… a fanbase… we’ll see. I’ll try to keep you updated.

At any rate, I just wanted to say hey, if anyone’s out there. I know I’m not very vocal about the comic, at least not on the actual site.  Also to let everyone know that comics will continue to come at a rate of (hopefully!) once every two months or so. See you again with issue #64!

Good grief!

Well, hello again. This webcomic’s been offline for around a year now, which is far too long if you ask me.

Anyways, this here’s the blog complement to the Jimmy Jone webcomic!  It’s a stupid comic about some people in college.  It’s been going since early 2007, and I hope to keep doing it until the story’s done! (Expected story end: sometime before I die.)

I guess I’ll use this blog to give you:

News!  Like, if I’m going to print up book collections again.

Commentary!  Like, if something in the comic references something else… or something like that.

Other stuff!  You know, like… other stuff.

So watch this space!
