The Enthusiast

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

There was a young man named Chris Haley who existed in a number of realities, as we all do. A common thread among Chris Haleys is their proclivity to keep themselves in a very poor state of living, as was the case with this particular one. He lived in a flat littered with toys and books and ate enough sweet cereal to rot his teeth. So it is, this day that this Chris is headed to some dentist, who may or may not be important as far as multi-dimensional dentists go, when he hears a slight sound and looks to the sky, only to be struck right on his third-eye by a space laser. I should mention space lasers are not common in this dimension, as I’m sure you were wondering about the noteworthiness of a space laser in a story where I’ve already explained there are a boundless number of each of us separated by a veil as thin as cheesecloth but nearly impenetrable, each a tiny bit different than the next.

Back to Chris, who finds himself supine on the street as cosmic energies infiltrate and replace every cell in his body, a process that looks quite like genocide on a microscopic level what with all of the regular human cells being burst like balloons. And he sits up, still looking and thinking like a Chris usually does. But look closer. With an electron microscope. You’ll see the difference. No skin, as we know it. No organs, no tissue, no blood, no bone. This Chris is a collection of ‘dots’, as we would come to call them later, practiced at the art of deception.

We leap forward a few months, because we can do that sort of thing when we use our imaginations, and Chris is learning that he can do unusual things. Well, unusual for us at least. Not too unusual for people blasted from space by the enigmatic Vigor Trigger.

Chris is flying and firing energy beams from his hands and eyes; he’s transforming things at a subatomic level by exciting or de-exciting their atoms, and generally doing his best to discover the secrets of the deep universe in the name of service and aid to his fellow human beings. This Chris is a superhero. This Chris fights with a fervor and the literal excitement of his electrons. This Chris is The Enthusiast!

Feet don’t fail me now..

Let’s do a blog!

1) Check out this sketchcard I did for one of our favorite LBFAns.

The Enthusiast sketch card

I am still taking commissions for sketchcards if more of you are interested. Just email me (see the ABOUT section for my email) and maybe we can do a thing.

2) We’re getting word that people who have ordered our book from Amazon are starting to receive them. If you have done so, please feel free to take a picture of yourself reading it or holding it or just proving you have one or whatever and we will post it and link to whatever you would like us to link to for you.

3) You may not have noticed yet, but there is now a little button below the comic on the right hand side that says “LBFA Vol. 1! Buy it here!”
Feel free to use that to buy our book.

4) We’re still working on deals to bring LBFAV1:UP to a comic store near you, but that could be a while.

5) If you’re new around these parts or if you just haven’t done so yet, why not join our Facebook group? We post things over there that we don’t post here. I’m not really sure why, but there it is.
Also, please feel free to meet and hook up with someone who is also a fan of ours, because that is the kind of thing we would like to facilitate. Hook-ups.

6) If you have not heard the official Let’s Be Friends Again theme song that Adam WarRock (aka Eugene Ahn) wrote and recorded, GO LISTEN TO IT RIGHT NOW!

That’s all I got.
