aside Remember when WIRED wrote articles on Garry’s Mod comics?

I certainly didn’t! But I just came across one and thought it was too much fun not to share. Sure, there’s still a few surviving articles on Apostasy and Concerned around the Internet, but I certainly didn’t expect to find one about Jeff on WIRED!

Here’s a quick transcription in case you don’t want to click through (or if the article ever breaks):

Jeff Turns 100, Retires

Jeff Eastman, creator of the comic strip Jeff, one of the most popular strips made with Half-Life 2 and Garry’s Mod, has published his 100th, and apparently last, Jeff comic.

A hit among gamers and the HL2 community, the comic featured the offbeat adventures of the titular character and his buddies in City 17 and elsewhere. To celebrate its one-year anniversary a few months ago, Jeff took his first comicand redid it, showing just how far he’s advanced in technique.

Jeff also dipped briefly into the medium of machinima for this short Mentos spoof (YouTube).

Amazing! Nice to remember when Garry’s Mod comics were all the rage. Of course, all the links in the article are broken, so I’ve gone ahead and contacted the site to provide updated links, in case they care.

That’s pretty much it for now, but I’ll let you know if I find anything else! Stay tuned!
