Safety First

September 11, 2013

Huge thanks to everyone for your continued patience and support while I get my brain/life back into gear. I hope you like this new comic! Thanks to my friend Pat (aka ASSCAT) for helping me with the idea.

Also, I was invited to speak at the webcomics panel at Chromacon 2013 and the video has recently been released so if you want to watch my nervous and awkward intro into the public eye here’s a youtube link. If you’re rushing for time and want to skip to my bits, my talk starts at 08:28Β and then Q&A starts at 25:30Β (but I would recommend watching the whole thing because Li Chen, Tim Gibson, and Dylan Horrocks were great).

Also also, you may remember my friend’s band ‘Third Culture Kids‘ I mentioned last year, well they have a new song called In Between and it’s really good, link here!

Thanks again for coming to my site, see you again next time (which should be sooner than however long it took for this update).

  7. Rinas says:

    I really appreciate your comics and hope you will continue your work even if it takes his time. To be creative is not easy and so is life, but nothing what is worth having comes easy.

  8. lana_desu says:

  9. sarassweetriot says:

    Love how awkward you are in the video <3 super cute though ^_^

  10. Anon says:

    i’d probably get hated for this, but I dont get the joke, anyone care to explain?

    1. Tiffs suck says:

      He used earmuffs to protect his ears, but he got ambushed by zombies because he couldn’t hear them moaning behind him.

  11. Leshka says:

    Welcome back, and I’m SOOOO glad you’re getting stuff sorted (doesn’t it feel great?)

    As always, love the strip!

  12. ThatGuy says:

    Nice to see another comic πŸ™‚ Shows that you seem to be feeling a bit better hopefully.

  13. manbeardman says:

    i knew at the beginning it was a zombie joke but still funny

  14. Gregor v/d B says:

    Good to hear you got your sh%t back in gear..


  15. Greggory says:

    Welcome back, Gregor. Always continued support for you πŸ™‚ Always a great comic as usual!

  16. Professor Citan says:

    I’m only a newcomer, so I’m not really familiar with your usual update speed for webcomics, but I’m glad that a new one if finally out after a month and a half (for me, that is) πŸ™‚

  17. Faenhir says:

    I already knew how he looked, but I’m not telling anybody how I did it for the sake of him not having spam from n00bs.

  22. StormTales says:

    Taking this comic seriously for moment (because that’s what I like to do) it’s recommended to wear ear plugs rather than muffs, it doesn’t take as much of ur hearing away but enough to protect ur ears from the sounds of gunshots

  23. helq says:

    Ohhh, that is how looks Gregor, ohhhh she is Li Chen, wonderful panel.
    But, I inform you, I don’t like be tracked, then I use Ghostery, NoScript, AdBlock, … then I didn’t be registered in this site (nor others), but I’m here, reading your beautiful web-comics. Thank you for the comics, are wonderful.

    PD: I’m sorry by my bad English (^_^’)

  24. Omega Lairon says:

    I guess it’s one of those “no win” situations… you either protect your ears and get ambushed by zombies, or you fire guns right next to your face for extended periods, go deaf, and then get ambushed by zombies. Probably best to just stick to a nice sword or sledgehammer then?

    But enough of that… the comic’s back and all is right with the world once more! And a glorious return it is, with excellent art / detailing (that last panel!), and a damn fine joke. Welcome back, and thanks for all the hard work.

    1. Brothernature0 says:

      Swords are pretty great, they don’t run out of ammo

  25. r3zn1k says:

    Yeah, a new comic! And I love it πŸ˜€

  26. Laura Thomas says:

    I’m just glad you found yourself and you are back!! We missed you!


  27. Sepehr says:

    :))))) Perfect

  28. Michelle says:

    Yay a zombie one! Love it!!

  29. JoJo says:

    He may be a zombie, but at least he’s got his hearing!

  30. ROMSY says:

    that was pretty much unecpected, thought there will be a gta joke… curse you rockstar!

  31. Mile Micic says:

    It is good comic! πŸ˜€
    welcome back…watched ur interview btw,it’s cool to see “character” from loadingartist in “live” ^^
    keep doing great job! πŸ˜‰

  32. SOSAnimeBoy says:

    Hmm…. could someone help me understand the joke? I’m missing it πŸ™

  33. Cookie says:

    OMGGGG L4D2! I love game humor. LoadingArtist you’re my FAV webcom, I’ve actually read each and every one comic of yours. I like you even more than Cyanide and Happiness and all other mainstream comics. And your speech at chromacon was pretty kewt. I wish you grow even more mate. Looking forward for many more. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  34. Superificman says:

    I love theses comics. So happy whenever Facebook tells me there is a new one. Keep up the good work man.

  35. Dave says:

    Well this was a bit predictable, but still funny. Probably would have worked better without the excited exclamations in the first panel.

  36. Peter says:

    That is great humor, just love the joke. You have done it again.

  37. emman says:

    ahahaha amazing, great one, thanks!
