Before I say anything, let me make clear that we’re not going on hiatus again. Nine months was long enough to not be cracking jokes and I don’t currently plan on taking a break for a long, long while.
When we first posted this strip in February 2009, our plan was to come back in a few minutes with a shiny new site design and our entire archive redone as flash cartoons. The idea came about when I was talking with JN one day about how cool it would be to put our strips on DVD as a virtual comic. After I played with the idea on iDVD, I realized that if these jokes were cartoons, they would be so much cooler on TV. Admittedly, the idea was a little foolhardy, mainly due to my theory that it all could be done in a view months when I honestly hadn’t the faintest clue about the work involved.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that, in the end, I put all the blame squarely on JN. Don’t worry about him, he can take it.
JN Here, I would like to jump into this posting and simply state it’s NOT MY FAULT Joe and Jon couldn’t finish what they started and if it wasn’t for ME For The Reels would still be on hiatus!
Now back to whatever Joe was talking about.
How it all panned out behind the scenes will be covered in the next couple weeks in these brand-new “Behind The Scenes” strips! Next week’s “comic” will actually be the one and only flash cartoon I finished. So be sure to check it out!
