The meek will inherit.. something.

Hi there.
It’s Chris again.

Curt doesn’t know I’m doing this, so this’ll just be our little secret.

Since what should be today’s new strip won’t be up until tomorrow on account of me being sick yesterday, I thought I’d share this little bit of business I found.

You can click on this picture for a closer look at the pencils from the cover of Curt’s rejected JSA pitch.

I wonder who’d be stupid enough to draw something like that.

Hope this helps with the waiting, and be here tomorrow for the thrilling conclusion!

Oh noe

No comic today. Chris and I were both held up this week thus our latest piece of brilliance won’t debut until tomorrow, or Saturday for anyone reading in the future or past.

If you are reading from the past, hello from the future. Things are great here! No problems at all!

I totally understand..

First and foremost, I’d like to make sure that everyone knows that the “tweedy, arrogant professor” in our (now legendary) 50th strip was our mentor/hero/friend, Joel Priddy.
What some of you who are less familiar with Joel’s work might not realize is that Joel was actually responsible for drawing the cartoon version of himself in said comic.
It was very cool of him to do it and a big thrill for me to get to have a quasi-collaboration with him again.

While we’re speaking of people being less than observant, I figure now is as good a time as any to mention that we are now bearing (and baring) advertisements.

You may notice one just to the left of what you are now reading. At the moment of my writing this it is an ad for some kind of space-wolf that is apparently great at philosophizing about design.
I have no reason to believe this isn’t the kind of thing that a space-wolf would be great at, so I just accept it at face value.

It’s not a big deal, but if anything over in that space that has now been designated for “advertising” looks interesting to you, by all means, please click upon it.

Also, the recent comments section is now located just beneath the ad in case you hadn’t been able to locate it lately.

As the guy who is mostly responsible for what the comic looks like, I’m pretty proud of the latest strip. Not because of the art itself (though I do like that), but because thanks to this strip I now realize have a great career ahead of me in interior design for preschool classrooms when this comic thing doesn’t work out.

Give-A-Fuck-O-Meter

Whoa, that thing’s getting dangerously low! I better wrap this up.
I’ll try to be less boring next time.

And with that, the two best parts from Spider-Man 3 have been accurately represented at Let’s Be Friends Again (the website) in animated gif form.

Now, no one can ever say that we didn’t do that.

But the real reason I’m posting that gif, besides that it’s awesome, is because it is obviously showcasing someone who is happy about something, and that is the feeling I am trying to let you know we are feeling.

Why? Because we were interviewed about comics, our comics to get particular, by a website that we already liked even before they asked to interview us.

That website is The ISS and the interview is right here.

A note from the artist.

Every day at LBFAHQ we get hundreds of emails asking for more behind the scenes looks into the process of making “Let’s Be Friends Again : The Webcomic”.

With Curt in France, I figured now was as good a time as any to once again peer behind the curtain.

Here is a preview of tomorrow’s strip…

Pretty magical seeing the magicians at work working their magicks, eh?

Long-time LBFAns will notice that Curt’s hair is slightly different in this panel to reflect recent changes in our overall continuity.
We expect this will probably garner huge media attention from all the regular mainstream sources and have already set up a satellite link with Curt at the Eiffel Tower for our expected appearances on Larry King Live and The Colbert Report.

In the back of my mind..

What am I forgetting?

I swear it’s right there on the tip of my tongue.

There’s something I’m supposed to be doing.

Man, what is it?

You may have noticed that it’s Tuesday and here it is no comic.


Sowwwie! Try to stay mad while you’re looking at that.

Seriously, Curt was draggin’ his ass all over Spain, suitcase in hand yesterday, and I was draggin’ my ass all over Tennessee trying to make it back from HeroesCon, crazy old Superman comics in hand.
These things happen when you’re out there making things happen, but fear not, the new comic will be up tomorrow just as soon as possible.

We promise.

I’m expanding my mind.

This was me last night.

No joke.

It was ridiculous.

Anyway, this whole week has kind of been off thanks to HeroesCon, so today’s strip will probably be up very late.
Possibly “tomorrow-late”.
It’s a good one though, so I’d rather put the proper time in than rush it.
Things will be back to normal next week.

Unless there’s a national holiday or something next week.
Pssh, what’re the odds of that happening though?

It’s true.

wtfuck?!
Okay folks, apparently some of you seem to be having trouble understanding that the Curt and Chris in the comic are cartoon characters.

For instance, often times in real life, I wear glasses to help me see better, while cartoon Chris does not.
Other times, cartoon Curt and Chris hangout outside in the sunshine, while in real life I don’t think this has ever happened.
Also, to the best of our knowledge, neither Curt nor myself have ever been mauled to death by a tiger or Evan Dorkin in real life.

Finally, I would like to clear the air once and for all about Curt and I’s relationship status.
No, we are not gay or gay together, but we do both have girlfriends and now is as good a time as any to introduce you to them..

Our girlfriends.

I’d like you all to meet my girlfriend, Red Girl Link, and Curt’s girlfriend, Blue Girl Link.

Hopefully this clears everything up and you can get back to enjoying our peehole and Twilight jokes.

Every day, we are hustling.

There was supposed to be a new comic up yesterday, but getting all the stuff for LET’S BE FRIENDS AGAIN, VOL. 1 : UNDER PRESSURE wrapped up and put in order for the publisher/printer/whatever had to be taken care of before Curt took off for France. The book is looking like it’s going to be pretty awesome though, so I think it’s been worth it.

Which is to say, the new strip is running behind.

These things happen, but it’ll be up sooner than later. I think you will all enjoy it.

Lots of other exciting things going on behind the scenes at LBFA headquarters, so get ready.. to be excited, I guess? I mean, the things are exciting, so.. I mean, I have to imagine your response would be one of excitement. Don’t want to go spilling the beans on all the things that are percolating, but I will say, prepare yourself for the ballin’-est t-shirts you have ever seen.

That’s all.

New strip soon. (And it’s not even about the Disney/Marvel thing.)
