Awkward Fumbles

Tuesday, 14 April, 2009 | Posted in Awkward Fumbles by David Morgan-Mar

It’s been … four months since we launched a new webcomic. Far too long! So here’s a new comic for your delight and adulation: Awkward Fumbles.

This is following the concept started by Ryan North (of Dinosaur Comics fame) with his comic Whispered Apologies. The premise of Whispered Apologies was that anyone could send in an original comic strip without dialogue in it, and Ryan and his friends would write something clever to make it fresh and exciting. Unfortunately, Whispered Apologies suffered an untimely demise… until now! We’re resurrecting the concept right here on mezzacotta.

So if you have a hankering to create a cool comic strip, but no idea what words to put in it, send it to us and let us do the hard work for you!

April Fools!

Ha, we are so awesome – we have pulled off the greatest April Fool’s Day stunt ever. We very quietly removed every mezzacotta comic and replaced the entire archive with completely new material! Yes, that’s over 3,652,425,000,000,000 comics. Every single one of them removed and replaced with an entirely new, original, never-before-seen comic.

How awesome is that? This was no doubt the biggest April Fool’s Day website prank ever perpetrated. We removed over 180 million terabytes of data. Not only did we remove it, we replaced it, with all-new data! The comics were essentially from an entirely new, fictional universe. Astounding!

Imagine if all of xkcd was removed, and replaced with hundreds of brand new never-before-seen xkcd comics. Imagine if all of Sluggy Freelance was removed, and replaced with thousands of brand new never-before-seen Sluggy Freelance comics. That would be staggering! We did more than that! We replaced quadrillions of comics!

Unfortunately, it seems nobody noticed.
