A25U Flashback: Happy Halloween!

I don't make Halloween comics often enough (sometimes not even every year), so here's a (trick or) treat for you: every Halloween issue I've ever made.  Or at least as far as I can remember.

Dig in!

Blade Runner 2049 Review, Sitrep on #400, Flashback: SNAKE Eater!

Woah, I fell behind there!  Sorry for the radio silence.  Been real busy on my end.

I recently had a chance to watch Blade Runner 2049 and reviewed the film for AtomicMoo.com, so you can check out the review right here.  Can it possibly be any good?  In any way hold up as a sequel to my all-time favourite film?  Check out my review and find out!

As for #400, progress is progressing, yes?  Most of the voice work has been recorded.  There have been delays with my voice actors' union due to health reasons, as every one of my actors happened to fall sick at different points during the project.  These things happen.  As for a tease as to what #400 is about, well, there are more guest characters than a fighting game and, as you guys know all too well, no one lives forever.

Flashback time.  This time, let's head back to August 2009, when Inglorious Basterds was in theatres, and that awful Hollywood bastardization of the Joe brand still left a bad taste in our collective mouths.  Here's the "S.N.A.K.E. Eater" story, where the Joes get their hands on some Cobra tech, and they respond with a character who was so born to pilot a mech suit that he thinks he's in the BattleTech universe.

Join us next week for the fan-favourite "A Real American Teamup" story that introduced my satirical take on Captain America -- and maybe some production stills from #400.  See ya then!

Flashback: Army of Plastic!

Woah, been real busy and fell behind again!  I didn't mean to keep you guys waiting for the next Flashback issue, but wait no longer.  This week, it's Army of Plastic, a toy-focused take on Army of Darkness.  It originally ran from June to July, 2009.  It's pretty silly.

Speaking of movies, if you're looking for something to do this long Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and are thinking of heading to the movies, check out my review of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, powered by AtomicMoo.com, and maybe it'll help you make up your mind.

With that out of the way, here's Army of Plastic:

Flashback: Scarlett's Sister

Welcome back to another Ages 25 & Up Flashback!  This week, we're heading back to January 2009, and the story that introduced Scarlett's twin sister, Willow from Dreadstar.  There's a break in the story for #21, which naturally, was a silent issue.  I just had to.

What other stories would you like to revisit?  Helix's introduction?  Army of Plastic?  The legend of Roy?  Let me know and we'll see them soon.  Thanks for sticking around!

Flashback: Clutch's New Body

Work on #400 is progressing (albeit slowly), so here's another A25U Flashback.  Let's head back to the comic's humble beginnings so we can better appreciate its humble present.

So this week, let's go all the way.  All the way BACK, that is.  Here are the first four issues of Ages 25 & Up, which began as a when-I-feel-like it thing on a small community site I used to be on with some friends.  Their enjoyment of the comic lead me to make it a weekly thing.

Well, weekly other than the animated specials, which take longer.

I'd like to think I've grown as a comic-making dude since this story, which originally wrapped up on this day, September 12, back in 2008.  Damn, it's been a while, eh?  I can't even read this crap anymore.  It's pure cringe to me now.  I guess not much has changed, has it?

Thanks for sticking with me all these years.  I'll try to make Special Animated Issue #400 worth your while!

#400 Sitrep & Flashback: Black Ops!

Your boy Numbers here with an update on the special animated issue, Ages 25 & Up #400.  Production is taking longer than expected and voice recording had to be delayed since I got a throat infection.  Pretty self-explanatory.

So while we wait for #400, I'll post some "It Came From the Backissues!"-style old stuff.  Stories we might have forgotten about, or ones worth revisiting.  This week, here's the Black Ops story, which ran way back in May of 2009.

It was my first attempt at a serious story, one starring Beachhead and Dusty.  I don't think it quite worked out as well as it did in my head, but it's one I look back upon fondly.  The first time I used outdoor photography in the comic, too!  Check out all three issues below, and check back next time for some more Flashbacks and an update on #400.

See ya then!

#399 "Can I Keep Him?"

Hey, guys.  Here's the new issue.  The next one, #400, will be an animated milestone issue.  Which means that it will be delayed because I can't have it ready by next week.

Which means that next week (and probably the week after that, and possibly the week after that), we'll hit 88mph together and go back in time to check out some old-ass story that might've forgotten.  Sound good?  Right on.

Thank you again for all of your help, support, and patience.  You guys are the best.  'Til next time!

#398 & Some Updates

First of all, I just want to thank you all for your help.  I managed to pay for my eye exam and glasses thanks to you guys.  You are the best.

#398 is a few days late, but here it is.  I won't have a new comic up this weekend because I'll be out of town visiting family.  So #399 will but up next week, and then we'll probably have at least one week off while I get #400 wrapped up.  During that time, I'll repost some old stories from A25U history.

So here's #398, and stick around, we'll be right back.

#397 "The Good Guy"

Before we get to this week's comic, I just want to thank you guys for helping me manage to get my glasses replaced.  There's still time to help and every little bit is appreciated!  Thanks so much for your help, guys, it really means a lot to me.

And now, a brand-new comic!

Help Numbers pay for an Unexpected Expense on GoFundMe

Hey, everyone.  I really hate to do this, but I'm in a bad spot and I'd really appreciate your help.

My eyesight is terrible.  Without my glasses on, I can't even read the screen I'm sitting in front of.  Unfortunately, my glasses broke, and due to the specialized nature of the lenses required, replacing them is much more expensive than I'd hoped.

If you can, please consider taking a look at my GoFundMe page at https://www.GoFundMe.com/NumbersBrokenGlasses and thanks so much for your help!
