New site is up

Hi all,

The new site is up and just in case you need it the address is a little different it is now:

All in all I like the changes. More cartoons available. Able to rate and leave comments so I can see what works and what doesn't.

Update: the new site now appears to be not up and the url is back to old one:

Stay tooned.

Changes a coming

Wow big changes coming in November. (No not a new president but I guess that is important too.) United Media will be revamping the web site to hopefully make it more interact and more fun. I am assuming the change will take place on Monday but don't quote me on that.

Also the new World of Warcraft comes out in mid-November. I am so exited I accidentally gave this cartoon to Scott to draw twice. Luckily, Scott being sharper than I am figured it out before he drew it twice.

Poll Position

Hi All,

It looks like Roy is going to win the popularity contest, big surprise. I was happy to see Dana passing Rita for third. I am sure Rita will try harder in the future.

Also this week, Scott is experimenting a bit with Working Daze. Anybody notice what he's doing? HINT: You'd have to be long time fan.

Plus we've started a NEW POLL giving you some direction over the course of Working Daze. You get to pick Rita's next crush. We know she likes powerful men with clout.

My next zuda entry sneak peak

Hi all:

Here's a sneak peak at my next zuda entry: Lasers Dragons and Lies, drawn by the very talented John Dallaire. This is a fun, fantasy / sf adventure. About a techno / medieval world called Aqua, where magic and technology co-exist but just barely as the two sides don't really trust each other. Knights exist but they are much more like pro-wrestlers.

This entry is a complete mini-story mean to be a promo / introduction to the main characters and to a much bigger main story.

Geeked out

Man, I really like today's toon. (And tomorrow's too.) Yes it's way geeky, but I think it's also a lot of fun. I know people like Roy and I do have a lot of Jay's tendencies. (Yes my poor wife.)

I hope you all liked it too!

Texting while Driving

Today's cartoon featured Carolina texting while driving which I understand is becoming more and more common. While Carolina managed to get away with it the rest of us who don't live in a cartoon world should realize how dangerous texting while driving is and avoid doing it. Of course all Working Daze readers are highly intelligent and have exquisite taste so I am sure none of you are guilty of this. :) Just try to keep your non-working-daze-reading-friends informed.

If you must text pull over to the side... (Then turn of your communications device because you are using it too much.)

Fan Video on YouTube

Just for fun there are a couple fan videos on youtube. (These are back from when Kyle was still drawing.) Maybe if Scott and I get some time we'll pump out our own video or two.

Start Rant:

Man, I don't know about the rest of you, but I will be SO GLAD (sorry for shouting) when this election is over. I am so tired of candidates and pundits from both sides always insisting their side is absolutely right and the other is wrong... What ever happened to finding common ground and working towards that? What ever happened to telling us what good you would do for the country not the bad things your opponent will do?

End Rant;

Our Blog is Your Blog

Part of the idea behind having a blog for Working Daze is to increase our interaction with our readers.  So we want to know what you think.  What do you like about Working Daze?  What don't you like?  Do you have any suggestions for future topics you'd like to see covered?

Scott and I are flexible.  (Okay I'm not that physically flexible these days but still mentally.)

HaGD!   (Have a Good Day!)

Poll sitting

Wow, Dana is gaining ground on Roy in the poll.  Are you people afraid if you don't vote for her she will turn you into dirt?  ;-)

BTW, the "real Dana" can just turn people to dirt with a glance.  (Okay she actually just makes them feel like dirt but it's effective nonetheless.)

Strange Daze

A quick note, today's comic originally featured a reproduction of the actual cover of The Art of War. But we changed it when our good buddies at UM legal informed us that would leave us open to liable lawsuits. Chances are very good the folks who publish The Art of War wouldn't sue us but being poor cartoonists we didn't want to take that chance!

Don't forget to go below and leave your caption for the contest. You could win a cool mug!

Yes, we are having another fill in blank contest. You can leave your entries here if you like....

Or you can email us....

There is a typo in the blog address on the toon, glad you managed to find us.

Of course Dana wins in the end

Rita, is a fun character who is more misunderstood than evil as in her mind she really thinks she's doing a great job. But of course Dana had to put a stop to this.

Glad to see people seem to like the mix of fantasy / geekness and the office interactions.

As to the question of how do people end up turning back into people after being dirt? It's a comic... The great thing about writing a comic is every day is a new day with a new restart if that's what we want. Unlike us real people what comic characters do in the past doesn't have to effect their future.

The flow and feel

My thoughts on Working Daze is that it works best when it touches on the aspects of geek life, fantasy and how these all interact or clash with the working world or for that matter the world in general.

For instance I think the series we are running now where Rita learns that anything she touches turns to dirt is a fun one. Rita decides to take her new found talent and make the best of it.

Your thoughts?
