I really have not been using this website to its full potentially, especially when it comes to promoting my webcomic, Dear Dinosaur, which is updated at www.twoforonecomics.com. So, from now on, every Thursday afternoon, I’ll be posting a link directly to this week’s strip, as well as some fun information about the comic! You can check out today’s comic “Romance for One” here: http://www.twoforonecomics.com/?p=2040
For those of you that haven’t been following the strip, you should start at the beginning and read up to this point. But to catch you up, earlier this volume (which started in December), Dear Dinosaur’s wife Krunch—a feisty American Gladiator—left him after months of frustration (which you can read in Volume II). This is Dear Dinosaur’s first Valentine’s Day alone.
This is actually the second Valentine’s Day strip of the series though. Dear Dinosaur premiered as a regular strip on Two For One—after a short test run on Filler Friday—on February 9, 2012 with a Valentine’s themed strip. You can check that out here: http://www.twoforonecomics.com/?p=471! Though I should warn you that the art is really rough as I still didn’t really know what I was doing back then.
When I first drew this week’s strip, I was worried that Armando would be too handsome to be single for the rest of his life. I had unintentionally given him a rather chiseled jaw and I know that some ladies love the Steven Seagal pony tail. To make him less attractive, I gave him a crazy cat sweater.
Also, the last joke in the strip was changed from the original script. Originally, Armando was to ask Dear Dinosaur if his plans actually meant that he would be eating ice cream and watching porn, but after I decided to make Dear Dinosaur read Fifty Shades of Gray in the bath, the porn joke didn’t work quite as well (since that books is basically porn anyway).
Finally, this week’s strip, along with many others is for sale! If you’d like to buy the original 11 x 17 art, it’s only $10 plus $3 shipping anywhere in the US. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
