OOOOW! Lots of new things going here at LPI Central.
First up, the debut of THE MAYAN! To quote Han Solo, “he might not look like much, but he’s got it where it counts.” And there’s no disputing this guy doesn’t like much of anything. Hopefully the other members of his team are a tad more impressive. It wouldn’t be too difficult.
In other news, Tracy Bailey takes over as our regular artist. As we’ve said before, Courtney (alongside Dale) is still working on other LPI things (actually as you read this, there’s a good chance they are doing just that…. OK, actually it’s more like fighting…. but good things usually result from those fights…. once the bones heal and the scar tissue stops itching). But just like all art, there’s a subjective element to how it’s received. In light of that, if you don’t like the new art direction, that’s cool, no one here will be offended by that…. but we do ask that you at least stay as polite and awesome as you have done to date (because let’s be honest, when Courtney and Dale started this strip way back when, there were some strips that were definitely a little dodgy…. it took us a while to find the groove you’ve come to know, expect and love (or dread…. after Pain’s Christmas Glittering, we can totally see dread as a legitimate reaction). But give it a little time, we know it will grow on you.
Next we have the full launch of stixite.com – the latest project from Court and Dale. If you checked out the sneak peak in December you know what to expect, if not, head on over there now. A new comic posts every day, and to keep things interesting, we create them completely backwards. It’ll make sense when you go over there and look over the site.
Look out for more LPI-related goodness soon. We have BIG plans for this year. And remember, we’re back on a THREE day-a-week schedule. So updates are Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
