Fan Comic: Chromed

Chromed

Written by José Cruz

Our humble Fan Page started when Yaz sent us her own rendition of a World of Warcraft strip. We loved the idea of our fans sending us their ideas, so we built that page from there. Since then, we’ve received a couple more fan scripts, including an awesome one from Roberto I. Ortiz, aka The CyberGenie, which we love so much we’re planning something really, really special with it. (We haven’t forgotten, Roberto, we promise you’ll like what we are working on!)

Today we’re publishing one of those fan strips. Our friend, and fellow geekumus prime, José Cruz, was inspired by Google’s launch of Chrome and wrote a strip about it. We took it, gave it a little polish (Get it? Polish, Chrome? Aw, forget about it…) and it is now an official The World According to Geek comic.

So there! Here it is! And keep sending us your art, pics, scripts and anything else you desire to geek@twatgeek.com!

The Emissary in Action!

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Save us from our cubicles, oh great Emissary of the Prophets!

Our friend Jeremy sent us this photo of the Emissary poster posted on his cube wall. To which Ricardo said, “Awesome indeed, if helping a geek decorate a cubicle isn’t the geekiest thing, I don’t know what is!”

I totally agree.

Thanks for the photo, Jeremy! (And really nice cube setup, man!)

Keep sending us those pics!

Cheers!

Twittwerverse Love, Family Grows

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

As many of you guys know,  last week’s comic strip was based on Pete’s Twitter addiction and his following of certain celebrities’ tweets. The comic turned out pretty nice and Pete proudly tweeted it forward. Well, to our surprise LeVar Burton, one of the aforementioned celebrities, re-tweeted it and thanked us for “the comic love”. Needless to say, this made us all extremely happy and proud, and in a case of art-imitates-life-imitates-art, we had our own nerdgasms. The coolness doesn’t stop there though, thanks to the “La Forge” bump our page hits doubled!

So to all our new readers, welcome to the family! To old and new readers alike, thanks for checking us out every week, there’s more cool stuff on way and as always your ideas and comments are more than welcome! Thanks, of course, to Mr. LeVar Burton for the Twitter love and for the years of entertainment. Of course, some reciprocity is in order, please check out Levar’s blog at http://levarburton.com/

The World According to Geek in the Original Klingon

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Our friend qurgh HoD has taken it upon himself to take our comic strips and translate them into tlhIngan Hol. (That’s Klingonese for all of you ignorant pahtaks.) We fully support this idea (after all, is there anything more geeky that a comic about nerds being translated into Klingon?!? I think not! Nerdgasm time!)  and are giving qurgh his own gallery in the Fan Page section, which will be updated regulary. Below you can check out some of his work! Thanks qurgh!

New Stuff Added to Downloads Section: Posters!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

If you’re a regular reader of our comic, you’ve noticed that, every once in a while, we add little background details to our strips, just for fun and geek giggles. The most popular of these pieces of background art are usually the posters we make up and insert into unsuspecting walls in many of our comics.  We’re often asked for higher-res versions of these posters by readers, the now classic Emissary poster that was featured in Buffer Overflow even adorned walls in real life!  So, due to popular demand, we’ve added a new section to our Downloads page. It’s a section devoted to these posters. Keep in mind that these posters are basically done as an inside joke, and most weren’t even meant to be readable in the comic itself. Also, most of them are kitbashed from any piece of art we have laying around, so they aren’t supposed to be great works of art. Still, they are a fun bit we’d like to share with all of you.

We’ll be adding more posters as they make appearances on the strip, so be sure to check the page every once in a while.
