    Welcome to what we hope will become a yearly MT tradition!
    text:
    Shirt Guy Dom's guide to MT's finest (or at least funniest) swag for the holidays!
    Dom:
    Well... not exactly. Today, I'll be talking about all the swag ideas that don't fly.
  2. Panel 2:
    text:
    You'd be surprised how much work goes into whoring MT out to all of you. There's an intensive testing process that every possible MT product has to go through before Piro approves it. Everything from child safety to censorship is considered. And there are a lot of monkeys involved, for some weird reason.
    monkey:
    Eek! Eek! Kheeeee!
    Dom:
    Interesting. The monkeys like the l33t shirt better.

  3. Panel 3:
    Dom:
    So without further ado, here's some MT swag that never saw market. And no, we won't have any of these made, no matter how many fans want them.*
    Ed:
    We're sorry. Well, okay, we're not.
  4. Panel 4:
    text:
    Reject 1: "Talking Piro"
    text:
    Tag line: "Relive every significant moment of MegaTokyo by pulling Piro's string! Seven phrases that apologize and whine. You'll feel like you're right there in the comic with him!"
    Piro:
    "I'm sorry, it's my fault."
    Piro:
    "Why do I suck so much?"
    Piro:
    "He/she must hate me because I suck so much."
    Piro:
    "Ohmigod I'm so sorry!"
    Piro:
    "What am I supposed to do?"
    Piro:
    "I, uh, um, er, I'm, uh..."
    Piro:
    "I can't draw, I suck."
    text:
    Rejected: Because the suicide rate in both human and monkey test subjects rose 200% after playing with it.
  5. Panel 5:
    text:
    Reject 2: "L33t n4k3d L4rgo"
    text:
    Tag line: "With just the press of a button, Largo transforms from a normal, everyday action figure to a naked avatar of l33tn3ss. Ph34r him!"
    text:
    Censored
    text:
    Rejected: For very obvious reasons.
    Also shown:
    Largo
  6. Panel 6:
    text:
    Reject 3: "The pretty stick"
    text:
    Tag line: "Tired of being hit by the ugly stick? Then do what Ed did and get hit by the pretty stick!"
    text:
    Pretty stick Mk. 1
    text:
    Rejected: Because it worked.

  7. Panel 7:
    text:
    Reject 4: "MT book 2"
    text:
    Tag line: "In January 2004, Dark Horse presents MegaTokyo volume 2"
    text:
    Rejected: After Piro decided it was too bad for Dark Horse to print.
  8. Panel 8:
    Ed:
    Wait, whoa, book 2 isn't cancelled, is it? Is it?!
    Dom:
    I dunno, but since the deadline for the book is today, I wouldn't be too surprised if it was.
    Ed:
    Good point.

"the joy of deadlines"

Friday - December 5, 2003

[Piro] - 11:00:00 - [link here]

Ok, just a few quick comments today. My deadline for getting book 2 done is monday, so that's what I'm concentrating on this weekend. I'm about a week behind my original goals (my self-set deadline), but things are still on schedule for the January release. The book is coming together really well. Rather than comment on what I've been working on for it, I'm going to try to finish it first, and then comment on it.

That said, I'm off to work. There is a good chance that Monday's comic might be late as a result of this (as in, I might not actually do it till monday) but it all depends on how much I get done today and saturday. Thanks for your patience. :)

UPDATE:

Oh! I just came across this today, and its very much worth pointing out. I was checking out an article over at the Pulse on a new Antarctic Press title called "Legends from Dark Wood", mainly because the artwork really caught my eye, and i did a double take when the artist for this title mentioned that he had done a guest strip for megatokyo before...

And sure enough, John Kantz did this highly amusing guest strip as part of our guest strip contest back in July 2001! Even if i had not made that connection, I was gonna pick up this title when i went to the comic shop, because frankly it looks pretty good. :) Way to go John, and good luck with the new series!

Oop ack!

"Backing up"

Wednesday - December 3, 2003

[Dom] - 22:00:00 - [link here]

There was going to be a rant some time in the last week. I swear.

But I'm going crazy. So don't mind me, I'll rant on Friday when this rant space will not be filled with invective and self-doubt.
