The Year in Review

This is officially the 52nd week we've been online, and what a year it has been. It amazes me that we've lasted this long. I've tried starting up projects like this many times before, both on my own and as collaborations, but this is the first time that anything has ever gone this far. In addition to actually hitting the one year mark, we've gotten 60k unique hits on the main comic page, which adds up to be about 170 hits per day! I want to thank all the readers (we hardly get any e-mails, but 60k hits has to mean that there are about 20 or so of you out there) who are patient enough to keep up with us. Also, special thanks goes ot to all the people who were kind enough to link to us and send readers our way. But most of all, I owe a super-mega-ultimate-uber-kamehameha thank-you to the person who not only spends hours upon hours turning my vision into reality, but who also inspired that vision in the first place. Of course I'm talking about Laura. I cannot find the words to properly express my gratitude. Needless to say, without her, none of this would have been possible.

So, since we couldn't have gotten where we are without the generous links from others (but that doesn't mean we couldn't benefit from some more generosity), I think it's only appropriate to link to a few notable comics. First of all, to be fair to all the other people who hang out in the #rocketbox IRC channel, I'll just link this list. So the following are notable sites which are not on that list. Asylum Antics by Chris Cantrell is a very funny and well developed 3 day a week strip about the patients in a mental institution (how could that not be funny). Then there's The Place in Between, a story drawn in the manga style that shows a lot of promise. Last, but definately not least,Random Thoughts; I'm not sure how to describe this other than just some simple fun. So, check 'em out.

Laura: May 12, 2003:

So, it's been like a month since I wrote anything. I am boring. I can't help it. And I just don't want to do anything. It might be because I cut my sugar intake by serious amounts. I used to eat chocolate and drink at least two sodas every day. Now, I've cut back to eating any kind of sweets and soda to one day a week. Waaaaa. Anyway, while normally I have very little I want to talk about, this time I actually have one thing that I want to go on about: videogames, my favorite thing in the world! (Sounds like a good place to break into song, yes?)

Mainly, I'm very excited about E3 which starts on Tuesday. I wish I could be a coffee server at a video game developer just so I could qualify to go as an industry professional. But alas, I can only read about it. There are a lot of great games slated for the latter half of the year (and it's been a great year already) but with E3 coming up, I'm especially excited about the games that we've heard little or nothing about. The titles I'm really looking forward to are Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Castlevania for the PS2, and Metal Gear 3. Admittedly however, there is one thing I'm hoping to see more than anything, though I think there's a slim chance that it'll actually happen. I'm hoping that SquareEnix will do a surprise revealing of Kingdom Hearts 2. Square has, in the past, slipped little hints into their presentations of things to come. Chances are it's still just too early, but video game developers do like their showmanship, so I guess we'll have to wait and see. But if and when they make a sequel, and it's something like what the secret ending was like in the first game, I'd be so happy that...well, I dunno. I'd have to do a happy little dance or something.
