Strange coincidence, update, random news

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

In yesterday’s strip (3/20), a rumormonger added two and two to get 4,376. I had considered several other numbers – like 22, for example – before deciding on a number that included the answer and the phone exchange of somewhere I used to live. Coincidentally, as pointed out by a reader, the asteroid 4376 Shigemori was discovered on 3/20/1987 – 22 years ago. Maybe I meant to do that?

In other site news, I’ve updated the links page, and added another page with links to fellow Palace in the Sky comics.

And in other non-Station V3 webcomic news:

Robert Cook’s comic The Mansion of E recently hit the 2,000 strip mark. Congratulations, Robert!

While there haven’t been any new episodes of PodWarp 1999 uploaded since January, it’s not dead yet! There are more episodes on the way. If you have any suggestions for a future episode, you can post them on the PodWarp forum. Meanwhile, Mark Mekkes and I were among the people on the latest live episode of The Gigcast.

And speaking of PodWarp, fellow PodWarper Ben Paddon has put out a Jump Leads book! Fun stuff.

New Sites and Things

Friday, December 5th, 2008

There’s a new webcomic rating site that started up recently – Is It Funny Today? Instead of voting for a site as a whole, you see individual strips, and vote on whether not you think they’re funny. You can vote from a list, or browse through random strips. Station V3 is one of the comics on their list (in the story comics section), so if you think any of the strips on their list are funny (today and the past few days), you can vote yes. Or if not, vote no! (I’m trying for “yes,” of course, but there’s always a chance my “yes” is someone else’s “definitely not.”)

Another new site (though not a webcomic one): The guys behind Star Pirates have come out with another game – Spy Battle 2165. If you liked Star Pirates, give this one a try!

And since I titled this post “New Sites and Things,” here are two Things: an alternate, more stand-alone version of today’s strip up as the new voting bonus at TopWebcomics, and a bad translation of today’s strip up at buzzComix!

The Starlost

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Someone wants me to buy more DVDs, apparently… First they announce Quark is being released, now it’s The Starlost!

(Now, if they announce the Logan’s Run TV series is coming out next, I’ll know something funny is going on…)

And in other news…

Friday, August 15th, 2008

V3 reader Daniel Ellingson has created some interesting things with the Spore Creature Creator – including a very nice version of Julius the Rumormonger!

In addition to Julius, today’s comic reveals that one of the other rumormongers is named Marco, and yesterday’s revealed that one of them is named Kyle. (There’s a little trivia question about Kyle on the forum!)

Silence in the Darkness on Q16 recently had its 500th strip go up! (Still dark – but not always silent.)

Two new episodes of PodWarp 1999 have gone up recently – a short Episode 22 with just me, Mark Mekkes, and guest Aaron Lewis, and a regular-length Episode 23 with the regular PodWarp crew!

And finally, I’ve updated the voting bonuses – there’s a sprite strip up at TopWebcomics, and a bad translation of today’s strip up at the all-new redesigned buzzComix. Thanks for voting!

I had been wondering if this would ever come out on DVD, since 1978 sci-fi sitcoms that lasted eight episodes aren’t likely to be high up on any company’s list of priorities… But apparently it is! Quark is coming out on DVD this October. It’ll be strange to see it with a decent picture and without commercials!

(“Quark is brought to you by… Dawn. Dawn takes grease out of your way!”)
