Comic description

Currently updates when I'm able.

A comic on the web about a guy who beats stuff up. Pretty much exactly what it sound like, really.

Really though, this is a side-project I'm working on alongside my more 'serious' stuff as a kind of 'immediate gratification' deal. It's a comic I'm writing and drawing for kicks and giggles so I have something more tangible I can say I've made while I work on my bigger project(s?).

I'm pretty sure the current state of politics has reached a point where if Superman were real, and still every bit the boy scout of a hero he's traditionally portrayed as, and he so much as refused to openly criticize President Trump, let alone dared to actually say anything that might even be interpreted as positive, all the people who hate President Trump would immediately start bending over backwards to find ways to make Superman out to be the greatest supervillain the world has ever seen.

Fair warning, I'm about to break into a little bit of a rant below. If you'd rather not hear anything about my negative feelings towards The Force Awakens, I recommend skipping straight to the general comments section.











Ok, last chance to skip, you've been warned.

Those who know my feelings regarding "Episode VII" can tell you that I hate The Force Awakens. Hate it. I was uneasy about it and didn't like it from the moment I finished watching it, but the more time I had to digest it, the more I came to outright hate it.

It basically solidified my desire to try to ignore any future Star Wars-related projects created by Disney and to stick with the Lucasverse canon that is 'my' Star Wars. I haven't seen nor do I have any desire to see Rogue One, and I certainly don't have any plans to see Last Jedi either, nor any other future Star Wars movies for the foreseeable future.

While the scene I'm poking fun at here is hardly the worst mistake that I think Abrams and Disney made with The Force Awakens - and there are a lot of them - what I do think it does is best encapsulate a basic summery of all the problems I have with the movie and what Disney and Abrams thought would be a good idea to make for a sequel to the original trilogy.

1) You have here Han "Shot First" Solo - who has had his character growth from the original trilogy thrown out to make him the same person he was at the start of Episode IV
2) Aboard a bigger, scarier "Death Star of the Week" - after we're supposed to be happy that Disney did away with old canon in part because it was one plagued by Superweapons of the Week (not to mention the subsequent Rogue One once again being about the Death Star)
3) Which was built out of a planet by "I can't believe it's not the Galactic Empire" - despite supposedly being a group that's supposed to be in such a state where the New Republic doesn't take them seriously and without any answer of how they got the same level of resources as the real Galactic Empire to build such a project in secret
4) And after getting Captain Phasma - who Disney insisted on pushing as "The New Boba Fett" while conveniently forgetting that 1) even Boba Fett wasn't the first Boba Fett until fans latch onto him without Lucas having to tell anyone he was "Boba Fett", ultimately ensuring that Phasma will never be 'Boba Fett' and 2) giving her anything on which to even attempt to qualify her as 'the next Boba Fett'
5) To lower the shields, what does Han "Shot First" Solo do? - despite the fact that the movie has already thrown out his characterization and turned him back into the person he was at the start of Episode IV that got people up in arms when Lucas messed with Han shooting Greedo preemptively
6) He insists on giving the audience a wink and a nudge to the garbage compactor from Episode IV - which is basically all Force Awakens is built off of - nudges and winks to the audience as it says "Hey, you remember that thing you liked from that other movie? Here's a reference to it, please love us now!"
7) In order to ensure that Captain Phasma can live rather than just shooting her and getting it over with - In what is, beyond a bonus opportunity for them to get in a nudge and wink to Episode IV, an over-conveient way to save Captain Phasma so they can keep her around for the sequel and continue to promote as "The Next Boba Fett" in spite of her failing to earn the reputation or adoration of the fans Disney so badly wants her to have.

All the other problems I could tell you that I have with Force Awakens, odds are that it's an expansion on, related to, or more of one or more of the above complaints.

And before anyone gets the bright idea of wheeling out the "They had to make the movie that way to restore the faith of the fans!" argument, I will call complete and utter BS on that argument each and every single time. It is perhaps among the worst possible attempts at a defense that could be made for why Force Awakens is what it is.

No, they didn't have to make Force Awakens as a stealth remake of New Hope; As someone who's a Star Wars fan who didn't need his 'faith' in the series restored, it only served to cement my opinion to have as little as possible to do with Disney-made Star Wars projects.

Quite frankly, I would have been happier if Disney had just rebooted the entire franchise from the ground up with an honest, straight-up remake of A New Hope than I am with what we got from The Force Awakens.

As it stands, I've got the Lucasverse as 'my' Star Wars, and Disney has made clear they're not touching that anymore. Funny thing is, I never realized when they first announced the split that I was actually looking at a blessing in disguise.

You ever been a fan of a commercial or series of ads without really caring about the company or product being advertised?

Because that's kind of how I feel about Arby's and their "We Have the Meats" TV ads. I have nothing against Arby's, their food is alright, it's just not my preferred choice of restaurant.

Their "We Have the Meats" ad campaign, on the other hand? Those things are delicious. It's like a sandwich for the ears, stuffed with thick-cut gusto and topped with a delicious sauce made up of just the right mix of comedy and humor, all assembled by a spokesman who knows exactly what he's doing.

So I felt inclined at taking my own crack at it, but cranking it up a notch in a way they probably couldn't or wouldn't ever do for real.

Back when my brothers and I were younger, one of them and I would play the Pokemon TCG, and our Mom tried to get at least some understanding of what we were doing, but never really wrapped her head around the rules.

Her thoughts on the complexity of it all were basically summed up with her saying "...except on Tuesdays", which now comes to mind any time I consider the complexity of something that my Mom is likely to become frustrated with trying to comprehend.

(It's either that or 'Thursdays', I can't remember. I should probably ask her some time.)

The relevance of this memory is that while putting this page together, I had flashbacks to my brother and I trying to explain what we were doing while playing Pokemon TCG (and probably doing a poor job of it, to be fair) and our Mom's reaction to such.

Anyway, that anecdote out of the way, "Vs The Theory of Evilution" is, now, in fact, fully concluded, this is the very last final page of the story arc. Which took far more pages to get through than I anticipated when I originally was putting it together. I in no way expected that when I started it would take me roughly a year and half to finish.


So now that that is out of the way, it's time to move forward.

First, there's going to of course be another intermission. It's probably going to be a long intermission. I don't know when the next story arc will begin, but I plan to at least get the script for it all written first before I start doing art for the first pages. So the longer it takes me to get it done, the longer it'll be till you get to see it.

I will be putting out intermission pages in the meantime, and I do know the basics of what the next story is going to be - It's actually going to be a Beat Stuff Up Man story without Beat Stuff Up Man making a significant appearance if he shows up at all.

Instead, it's going to be a side story starring a couple other characters that have previously appeared, called "The Spawn of Quth-Clu!". So that right there should give some hint about what's coming.

Two other bits - One, I'm going to be looking into and considering another hosting site in addition to what I'm currently using here at Comic Fury. For the forseable future the pages will still be posted here, but I'm going to be looking at other options as well as an attempt at additional or superior exposure. it stands, I originally started this comic as a side project, something to keep me productive while working on larger projects, something I could point to and tell myself I was actually making stuff. Except, somewhere along the way, this comic would up being a more time-consuming effort than my primary projects, to the point where I think that as is it's doing me more harm than good (especially with as few readers as I have - don't get me wrong, I appreciate everyone who's been reading this thing regularly and would count themselves as fans, but the plain and simple fact is that statistically speaking your nonexistent in number - right now, this comic is having a good day if it get as many as 20 visitors).

In other words, for a side project, it's eating up a disproportionally large amount of my time each week. (On which note I should say more power and credit to all the folks out there who manage to put together a far superior product each week while still finding the time for all the other stuff in their lives).

Which is why I'm dropping what regularity this comic's release schedule still has. I've been planning this for a while, but I'm only doing it now because I've finally completed the latest story arc and I do realize that the lack of a reliable release date each week does bring an increased risk of the comic dying, and I thought at the very least, I owed it to what readers I do have to make sure the current story arc got finished. It wouldn't be fair to you otherwise.

I have no intention of letting this thing go on hiatus or dying, but at least now you do have forewarning in case this is merely the next phase in Beat Stuff Up Man undergoing the typical Webcomic life cycle and simply fading out.

But again, seriously, to the handful of you out there who do read this thing regularly?

Thank you.
