Hello readers! Big news here at "The World Wasn't Meant"... big news.
First of all, we went to the New England Webcomics Weekend in Easthampton, MA! It was an incredible time. We got to meet some of our favorite artists, like Chris Hastings (Dr. McNinja
), Joey Comeau and Emily Horne (A Softer World
), Randall Munroe (XKCD
), Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics
), Jorge Cham (PhD
), Jeph Jacques (Questionable Content
), and Zach Weiner (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
). Chris drew me a picture of Dr. McNinja which was awesome because it was the first webcomic I ever read religiously. Randall sketched a picture of me asking for him to draw my picture... funny guy. I also got Joey Comeau's new book, "Overqualified
." It's the funniest thing I've read in months, you have to check it out. Dan asked Zach for a picture, and he started drawing a girl, but then it looked like Batman, so Dan asks "Is that Batman?" Long story short, Batman is now a stunning blond with ruby red lips.
We also met a fellow newer artist, Alex Bettigole, who draws "Oak Street Wilds
." The best way to describe it is a sort of Calvin and Hobbes and Samurai Jack combination. Essentially, it's awesome. Check it out! We also met a ton of other brilliant cartoonists that we will tell you all about soon, but Alex gets a special mention cause he joined our foursome for the weekend. We even shot a comic featuring him as a guest star, so keep an eye out for that.
The other HUGE news, and I mean HUUUUGE news is that we are OFFICIALLY LAUNCHING OUR WEBCOMIC. Our first scheduled comic, "Magnets
", is now up - check it out! This marks the dawn of a new age where "The World Wasn't Meant" gets updated 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Remember this day, and remember it well, because from now on, time will be referred to as Before TWWM or After TWWM.
Read on, dear readers... read on.
