I’ve been making webcomics off and on since the year 2000. In that time, there are only a handful of cartoonists who I consider true friends, and one of them is Walter “Petie” Shumate. He had a brilliant comic title Girl/Robot years ago about the misadventures of a well meaning robot, and a little girl who paid the consequences of his actions. Well last week Girl/Robot returned. It’s a fantastic strip, the entire archives are there, and you should go read it. Go now!
Hello dear readers and random passers by. Do you enjoy ‘Yet Another Comic’? Well as the creator so do i, but i would like as many people as possible enjoying what i have to offer every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday here at the site.
This is why i’m dubbing April ‘Yet Another Comic’ month! I’ve started myself a month long project wonderful ad campaign to bring in a host of new readers from all across the web, but i would like to enlist the help of my loyal readers as well. Do you frequent a forum? Do you spend too much time on Fark, Reddit, or Stumbleupon? Are you one of those social media people who have a bajillion facebook friends and twitter followers? If so, how about spreading the word? Not just for the comic in general, but if you’ve got a strip you love and think others would enjoy, why not use the share buttons available or just plain old send em up to the url?
The comic has been going strong for almost a year and a half now and i gotta tell ya folks, it’s not even close to peaking in artistic and humorous quality. I love creating it, and will continue creating, but it’d be great to know that more and more people are discovering and enjoying what i have to offer.
If you can help, i’d really appreciate it. If not, continue to enjoy the comic, and tell me what you think either in the comments, by email, or on twitter.
Oh and why is April 2012 so special? Well i may have a birthday on the 26th, and i may be turning 30. This lends itself to making sure April is the bestest month for the comic ever! But the whole 30 thing… that’s a secret. Shh, don’t tell anyone. Wink!

It’s been a while since the blog has been operational hasn’t it. I’m sorry for dropping the ball on the comic blog. It got weird each morning writing a blog post for a comic that i uploaded a few months prior, and then speaking in the moment. I might try and bring it back someday as it’s extra content, but the comic is the important part and that has continued uninterrupted (and if you’ve been enjoying it, feel free to leave a comment, send an email or click that share button).
Anyways i’m writing because after months of putting it off, i’ve transcribed the entirety of the comic archives. You may notice a transcript drop down below each comic for those of you interested in that for any such reason (on my end it helps with search engines bringing more people to the site). Future plans are to have a search function so if you remember a piece of dialogue, you can find the comic. The actual function is beyond simple, i just want to get it in the right spot on the site, and that can be the tricky part.
I hope you all are enjoying the comic and don’t forget to tell your friends!
So i’ve been thinking that while i like to let the comic speak for itself, I should probably be putting myself a little more out there.
Starting with the latest comic (for the 25th of June 2011), i will be writing about things in the space below. For those who just wish to enjoy the comic, have a read and move on. That’s what the site is here for.
For those interested, scroll down a little and i will be writing about things that are going on, perhaps posting some other artwork and talking a little about either my writing or art process depending on the strip in question.
So really nothing is changing except another avenue for entertainment and enlightenment*
*enlightenment towards the comic strip. Success per individual may vary.
Hello dear readers!
You may have noticed that for the past month or so, the website has either been down, broken, or in some rare cases, working just fine. Well what happened was i moved web hosts and in moving my site over, lots of problems were had. Luckily the team over at Top Class Host have been extremely helpful, and i’m about 90% sure that everything is back to normal now.
If you’ve been following along with the updates, some really great comics are on their way, so stay tuned! If the site problems chased you away, i humbly suggest that you check out the last month or so as i’m quite proud of many of the comics that were posted during this tumultuous period. For new readers, my new web server is nice and fast so diving into the archives shouldn’t be a hassle at all. I’ve even been able to reinstate the facebook like button below the comics. Feel free to make use of it on any strips that you enjoy.
If you do come across any issues regarding the site, please let me know about them at dturnip at gmail dot com.
Aside from that, read some comics, leave some comments, and if you like what’s here, tell your friends. Enjoy the ride!
