Re: Billy's Dad's name?
On the first page Billy's dad's name is given incorrectly as William, but subsequently as Arthur...

You have outdone yourself. although, i'm not the right person to talk about your achievements. This story is really amusing.. but it gets too traumatic towards the end :) . i believe in commander keen. i can't accept his death either. :) .

"CK:10 Years On" is on the www.3DRealms.com website now, and it has been causing a real stir there - in a good way, I mean. With their huge bandwidth, now anyone with the internet can view it anytime! Woo-hoo!

------------
I started drawing the comic some time around January the 14th... or 15th? Anyway, I was just drawing a bunch of pictures of the classic computer game characters being interviewed today (nerdy Cosmo, snobby Jill, brainy Dopefish, etc) and letting my subconscious assemble the overall story while I took notes on the history of Apogee/id Software and Commander Keen on a scrap of refill. Some of the pictures I drew then weren't included: Geriatric Major Stryker and his young wife, Yoshira; some more pictures of Tom Hall reminiscing about Keen; and one of Billy Blaze's bodyguards stopping Michael Jackson from getting Billy's autograph.

Almost a week later (I was busy with other stuff), after I'd coloured those pix, I began slotting them into the story that I was typing up into HTML by that stage. The storyline that I'd planned out next to the "actual" timeline of id Software's history went as far as Keen's trumphant return in the Megarocket followed by an explosive death - an event that I didn't end up using after all.

As the story kept going and getting more detailed, I kept drawing (and downloading) more pictures to insert into appropirate places until It Was Done. So it took just under two weeks. I was surprised at my own speed. But then, I did spend a WAY lot of time on it.

Hopefully the links to my own website (I included them in the credits!) will bring more visitors to my comics homepage... no more than 10 hits a day, currently. :garg It used to be 30/day!

I especially like the second picture in the whole chain.. the one with "Drugs"-title. keen looks like a mad mushroom.
Well TMST, you deserve to be praised for that achievement. hope it brings you thousands of viewers each day

TMST, you're crazy. =) Meant in a good way, of course.

I don't particularly like the fact that you had to kill off the original Keen, but it does make sense, and it works. Ah well, I'm just me.

/me shudders to think what kind of game Keen would have been had TMST worked on it... (LOL)

That was a really funny cartoon! :lol Great work as always!
(But how dare you disgrace the name of Commander Keen? Blasphemy! ;) )

Oh, and by the way,
Quote:
One for all you nerds who sit in Star Trek movies saying "That couldn't happen, it violates Heisenberg's laws of uncertainty" - In the picture of the Dopefish giving out autographs, there is a geek wearing a t-shirt with a Quake II logo on it. This is supposed to be taking place circa 1992-3... But wait a minute - Quake wasn't even released until 1996 and Quake II didn't come along until 1997! If you find any more of these anachronisms, feel free to flame me about it.

Since you asked for it... there is a picture that says "Berlin Wall, 1991".

The fact that Commander Keen gets into so much adult content does kinda ruin it for me (and did Billy's brother HAVE to have a sex change???) but all in all, it's an impressive piece of work.

Objects in computer screen may be closer than they appear.

i think my friend Dan summed this whole thing up for me. after i'd viewed about half of it, i sent him the link to it, and his response was
"Quite a hero you've got there, Xky."
^_^ i think that's about all that needs to be said there.

TMST, your art's got a definite flair, and suits itself well to Keen. congrats on being noticed by 3drealms and getting the series hosted on their page :-) that's incredible!

i still can't figure out the anagram of that one guy's name, though. *sigh* guess i'm not a true Keen fan :-P

I didn't particularly like that fact either - very sad. But this IS "one of those documentaries", so I thought I'd better push the limits as far as I could.

Berlin Wall - 1991


Quote:

On July 1 1990, an economic, monetary and social union between East and West Germany was formed, and all restrictions
concerning travels were dropped. The wall vanished almost completely until 1991; there are a few remainders at the Bernauer
Strasse, the Niederkirchnerstrasse ...



(from userpage.chemie.fu-berlin...wall.html)

Maybe I should've been more specific and said "Berlin Wall remnant" or something...

Who wants to give some of us a hand with the Leon Winstef anagram?

BTW - I later realised that I could've called him Leon Wetfins. WETFINS! :dopefish LOL
