The Nostalgia Update: Day 5

The Nostalgia Update

Hello and welcome! Welcome to the final day of Metrocop’s Nostalgia Update, a haven of old-school Garry’s Mod comics, re-released online for your viewing pleasure! On Day 1, we had Clover (Jeff, Secret Agent Whiskey and more); on Day 2, the old comics of yours truly, Mythos; Day 3 was all about the huge PoB/CR-O War; and yesterday, Day 4, was a re-release of FZE’s works.

Just as I started the Nostalgia Update with a huge nostalgia trip to one of the biggest Garry’s Mod comic classic authors, it seemed appropriate to end on a somewhat similar, and yet hugely contrasting, note. Contrasting because, where Jeff was a cheerful and lighthearted comedy, this series in particularly triumphs in its dark humor and self-deprecating tone. Sound familiar? And also, amusingly enough, this series was actually the very first contribution to the Metrocop Comic Archive. The last to be released is actually responsible for kick-starting the whole thing!

As you may have already guessed, the final Day of the Nostalgia Update is all about Worse than Life! In fact, it’s the re-release of all Worse than Life issues – and including, of course, the latest issues as well, released on Metrocop to begin with!

Worse than Life
And with these 49 extra comics, the content of the new Comic Archive is now complete! Therefore, it’s now finally online, complete with not only the series released throughout the week, but also the previously released The Adventures of Hercule Cubbage and another quintessential classic, Apostasy!

Go check it out!

Likewise, by the time you read this, you’ll likely already have the new Metrocop menu to go with the new logo and archive, which should simplify browsing through the site! Ain’t I nice?

This was a fun thing to do and it’s great to finally have literally months of work pay off, for everyone’s enjoyment. That said, it’s not the last update the Comic Archive will ever get! It’s simply its original release, but you’ll get more comics – classics and, hopefully, brand new stuff – as time goes by. Not everything will go in, I’m afraid, mostly because I need to be careful with upload space, but you’ll get more awesome stuff, for sure!

For further updates, I suggest you follow the site through e-mail subscription (or, if you’re a registered WordPress user, through your WordPress account), and you’re always welcome to just come back occasionally to check the news and re-read your favorite comics! With your help and attention, perhaps we can make Metrocop the definitive modern Garry’s Mod comics website!

And with that, the Nostalgia Update is officially over! Apologies for the lack of hat drops and new weapons, but I hope you enjoyed the comics! Come back soon!

  1. Awesome stuff! It’s good to have all this together in a single archive (y’know, a bit like how PHW used to be…) – must have been a ridiculous amount of effort to go to!

    • Months and months, literally, but it was worth it! It may not have a forum (yet), but now at least there’s a new archive for people to revisit GMod comics! And hopefully Metrocop only grows from here!
