Hello! Here we are again! In case you’re just joining us or missed something, the Nostalgia Update is the release of old-school comics for the new Metrocop Comic Archive. Day 1 featured Clover’s classic comics, including Jeff and Secret Agent Whiskey, and Day 2 was a re-release of my own old comics from 2007 up to 2011.
As most of you probably know, the majority of old-school Garry’s Mod comics found an audience in PHWOnline, an old and long-defunct site. In that same site, I joined a group called Phenomena on Break (PoB), led by a guy with the username GrowingDelirium, and we had some good times as the group grew in size and cool people joined us. I’m fairly sure I wouldn’t care for Garry’s Mod comics for so long if it hadn’t been that group and the people I met there.
At a certain point in 2008 – about half a year into my Garry’s Mod comic making “career”, in fact -, a guy going by the name “Looshkin” essentially threw a challenge directed at the PoB members. While we were a relatively small (albeit growing) group at the time, what resulted was a surprisingly massive Garry’s Mod comics event with the participation of a lot of people from the forum.
Today, Day 3 of the Nostalgia Update, I’m re-releasing that event in its entirety. The PoB/CR-O War, started by Looshkin, is a 42-part epic that, while unfortunately (and somewhat ridiculously) left unfinished at the very end, is well worth a read (or re-read):
(Small technical heads-up: unlike other pages from the Comic Archive, individual issues of the PoB/CR-O War don’t get their own subpages. In technical terms, due to the differences in dimensions between issues, it didn’t feel appropriate to limit them to the same exact width – I find it better to read them like this. Thank you for understanding! Feel free to leave comments about individual issues on the main PoB/CR-O War page)
Like yesterday, tomorrow will see a smaller-scale release – but believe me, what this one is missing in quantity, it’ll make up for in quality! And on Friday, the fifth and final day, you’ll see another big release to finish off, as well as the official Comic Archive page that’ll make finding all these comics a lot easier! To make sure you don’t forget to visit, you can always subscribe to the site!
Alright, I hope to see ya back here tomorrow! And have fun reading the War!
