Kickstarter of the Week: Adventures of a System Admin

Adventures of a System Admin is back on Kickstarter, with Back to Business. This is issue #5 for the series, and their third Kickstarter campaign.

Writer/Creator, Juan Espinosa, is a Systems Administrator in real life and created the series to help educate readers about S.T.E.M. and using technology safely. We’ve all had that moment of trying to teach your older family member about modern technology. I swear this is a phenomenon as old as time; I can just see a cave-teen trying to teach the older cave-man that fire good. Today it’s more like “No, deleting Internet Explorer doesn’t mean you deleted the internet, Grandma. Also, why do you still have Internet Explorer…?”

The campaign (which funded on day 1) is specifically to raise printing funds for the issue plus the new Volume 1 TPB that ...

Artist: Jo Galicia
Cover Design: Gerald J. Jones
Cover Artists: Anthony Moore, Rudy Ao, Brian Payne

It’s one thing to find a comic you like, and you know you can walk into your friendly local comic shop and know when it will be there. When I was new in the hobby, living in a small town, the nearest comic shop was in the city. I was lucky to get there once a month, so opening the mail to find that month’s subscription had arrived was a mostly-unexpected treat. (Shipping to Canada sucked back then too, so I could only afford one, Count Duckula.)

So when I walked out to get my mail one day and found a nice solid cardboard envelope marked “Limitless Comics” I was stoked. It’s a different feeling than having Amazon show up on your doorstep...

Schlock Mercenary Book 14

Broken Wind
Written and Illustrated by Howard Tayler
Colors by Travis Walton

Bonus Story: Memorabilia Maximized
Written by Howard Taylor
Illustrated by Ben McSweeney

Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing the Planet Mercenary RPG and what was (when I picked it up) the most current print collection of Schlock Mercenary, Book 13: Random Access Memorabilia. So when the opportunity to grab Books 14 and 15 came up, it was a no brainer.

The most important thing to remember is that Schlock Mercenary is a daily webcomic. While it isn’t limited to the restrictions of a daily strip in a print newspaper, Howard Taylor usually keeps many of those conventions. Schlock Mercenary usually runs a single-tiered strip Monday to Saturday, with a longer strip on Sundays. 

Why does any of that matter...

Going to the Chapel #1

Written by – David Pepose
Art by – Gavin Guidry
Colors by – Elizabeth Kramer
Lettering by – Ariana Maher with Colin Bell

Sometimes we forget that there is more to comics than Archie and Superheroes. (Yes, I completely believe that “Archie” can stand on its own as a genre and not just a company or character). It remains to see exactly what genre Going to the Chapel will become (although the tagline “love is the ultimate hostage situation” may be telling) but it’s very much not those two.

The issue opens, as you might expect from the title, with a wedding. Panels shift between the bride and a gang of bank robbers watching from a distance, all set to the lyrics of the famous 1964 song that this series takes its name from.

Flashback to earlier in the day...
