Poor Jay

Wow Jay gets now respect. First he's near the bottom of the poll. Now this from Medusa. It's not easy be average.

Now for Something Kindof Different

Just thought I'd share Scott's and mine Sam 3.14, PI with our readers. We will be pitching this as Ipod comic.

As for WD I am sure some of the economy's woes will be hitting our characters too.

Poll Sitting (well reading)

So far after looking at the general results of the poll is seems that Roy is by far the strips most popular character. Well I guess that makes sense. So I better keep the geek material coming. I'm glad to see Dana holding her own though in second place. Nice to know people still appreciate hard work, being under-appreciated and a glare that could melt steel.

Speaking of things that are geek, how many of you caught Heroes last night? Was anybody else thinking, "man this reminds me a lot of The 4400." Though ironically two actors (Summer Glau and Garret Dilahunt) from the The 4400 are now on The Sarah Conner Chronicles.

Weird and circular world.

The Politics of Dancing (well writing a comic)

Being human and being inundated with political "news" it's only natural that on occasion a bit of politics will creep into Working Daze. I will try to keep it mostly to a minimum. I will also try to be mostly balanced. I believe it is time for a change for the country (look at the economy) but I also feel both sides are way too partisan putting the good of the few above the needs of the many. (Spock would be so upset.) Plus everybody tends to get greedy. I guess power really can corrupt. (Hey all those comic books can't be wrong.)

Plus no matter who wins at least we will have a new president come mid-January 09. That has to be good. Right?

Blogging Gifts

Hi all,

Part of the reason for the blog is for us to have more of an open relationship between us and our readers.

Along those lines each month we will send one Working Daze mug to the reader who asks the best question or gives us the most interesting feedback. How will we decide what is "the best"? Whatever Scott and I like the most.

We will also be having other contests and things throughout the months. We want this to be an interactive experience for those who want an interactive experience.

The above cartoon was certainly one of my favorite this month. Why? I'm not totally sure. I guess it shows Roy using his geekness to his full advantage.

Random Rants / Thoughts (such as they are)

Man, that Bill Gates / Seinfeld commercial has already been canned. Too bad I kind of thought it was cool in weird sort of mean nothing way.

I still wouldn't rule out a Bill Gates run at president someday.

I'm actually getting tired of both sides in this upcoming election. Both sides have this we're right and you're wrong attitude. Can you say partisan?

I miss Dr. Who....

Early Poll Results

The early poll results are surprising (no not the ones that say Obama and Palin are close for this year's presidential election) the REALLY important poll on: Who's Your Favorite Working Daze character. I am surprised that at this early date Dana is polling even with Roy.

Of course it's still really early and we haven't publicized the blog our poll in the cartoon yet so I expect numbers to grow and maybe change. We'll see if these early poll results are indicative of overall popularity.

BTW, if you pick other it would be nice if you left a comment telling us who that other is. Is it Jay's computer? Roy's robo-dog pet? Andrew the graphics guy (who is due to make a come back...)?

Spot for our Readers


Part of the reason behind this blog is to give our readers a chance to sound off on what they live and don't like about Working Daze. Scott and I really want to make Working Daze as fun and interesting as possible. So at the risk of sounding like one of those automatized voices you get when you are on hold: Your Business is important to us so please stay on the line. Except replace "stay on the line" with "keep reading Working Daze."

For those who are interested I do play WoW. I have a Lvl 70 Mage called Zapperz on the Rexar server. Yes I am a geek.

Working Daze Blog

Hi All,

The Working Daze cartoon blog is back.

Here is where we will at times talk about the process that goes into creating Working Daze.

Here is also where at times we will sponsor contests or make announcements.

This will also be the spot where you can leave you complaints or kudos. Hopefully we will get more kudos.

The first thing I would like to address is the change of cartoonists to Scott Roberts. Scott's been doing it for a while now and I feel he's really gotten the hang of it. Yes, he's not Kyle Miller as Kyle wasn't Andre Noel who came before him. But each of the cartoonists who have drawn Working Daze have had their own separate skill sets. Once they catch on they really add a piece of themselves to the final product. I was sad to see Kyle go (but I realize his day job and busy family life have to take priorities.) I was just glad that Scott so ready and able to step in.

Don't forget to check vote in our poll to vote for your favorite Working Daze character.
