SushiGummy, February 7th, 2010, 10:05 pm

Sorry about the break from comics. I was very busy in a play (which, by the way, turned out brilliantly epic) and I had absolutely no time on my computer.

That's all over with now, so updates should be resuming normally. The next page is almost done and should be up within the next 24 hours, along with the page after that. Just expect some pretty smooth updates for a while.

Scroll down for an author comment that will be a magnificent story as soon as I'm done with it.

INSPIRATIONAL STORY TIME! Man: Someone help! My son is trapped in the burning building!
Firefighter: Oh no! This is horrible!
Man: Please, you have to help him!
Firefighter: I... I can't...
Man: What!? Why not!?
Firefighter: Truth is, we firefighters don't really know how to handle burning buildings.
Man: Huh!? How come!?
Firefighter: Well, we were never really taught how. See, there's this comic called Detective Tarson-
Man: What does this have to do with a comic!? My son's still up there!
Firefighter: He's probably dead, now shut up and listen to my story.
Man: He's not dead, he's waving his hands up there at that window!
Firefighter: I don't see him.
Son: Dad! Help!
Firefighter: I didn't hear that.
Man: What!? If you hadn't heard it, you wouldn't have-
Firefighter: Anyway, as I was saying, there's this comic called Detective Tarson, and each time it reaches a high number on a voting site, the author will make a bonus drawing or bonus chapter with themes and ideas chosen by the readers.
Son: Oh, are you guys talking about Detective Tarson? That comic is awesome!
Man: Huh?
Son: Yeah, each time the author reaches a certain milestone, he gives the readers a chance to earn a bonus drawing or bonus chapter for Detective Tarson! The best part is that everything that the bonuses consist of are chosen by the fans!
Firefighter: Yup. I was planning to ask him to make a chapter based around firefighting, but Detective Tarson didn't get enough votes for any bonuses!
Son: Did you know he's offering bonuses for each nomination he gets in the Smack Jeeves Webcomic Awards 2010?
Firefighter: Oh yeah, I heard about that! He's offering a bonus drawing for each nomination he gets, and when the time comes, he'll make a bonus chapter for each category he actually wins!
Son: We've got to hurry, though! The committee will stop taking nominations on March 31st!
Firefighter: Whoah, I'd better get going then! How do I nominate Detective Tarson again?
Son: It's easy! Just go to and post your nominations on the thread! You can make as many nominations as you'd like!
Man: How'd you remember that entire link?
Firefighter: It's surprisingly easy to memorize. I'll be off now, I've got nominations to make!
Man: But what about my son!?
Firefighter: I already told you, he doesn't have any hope up there.
Son: He's got a point, Dad. Detective Tarson didn't get enough votes last month, remember?
Dad: There must be something we can do!
Firefighter: Wait! What's that!? Over there! It can't be... It is!
Tarso: ¡Hola, señores! ¡Me llamo Detective Tarson!
Firefighter: Detective Tarson, in the flesh! I can't believe this!
Tarso: Si, I'm definitely not am fake, I am real Detective Tarson!
Man: But your name says "Tarso."
Tarso: ¡Cállate, gringo! I hear there is children in that building, ¿is true?
Man: Yes! My son's stuck up there!
Tarso: I save him, but only if you are promise to nominate Detective Tarson for awards!
Man: I promise, I promise!
Tarso: Is preferred you nominate for Best Comedia, Best Characters, and The WTF Award, but you get decision.
Son: Detective Tarson, is that you?
Tarso: ¡Si, white child! ¡I save you from building!
Man: Thank you so much for saving my son, Mr. Tarson!
Tarso: ¡Is no problem, señor! ¡Just have sure you vote for my comic often and nominate it at Smack Jeeves Awards 2010!
Man: I will, Detective, I will!

The End.

Damn you're just soooo good Detective Tarson. Your logic is flawless and you should be a philosopher. :D

I'd like to know about this mystery person looking for the cap'n.

Phoenix of Chaos, February 8th, 2010, 4:35 am

... what. Sushi, this is strange, even for you.

Big A2, February 8th, 2010, 5:12 am

That's some pretty Phoenix-Wright-level logic right there.

WalkedAway, February 8th, 2010, 2:59 pm

LMAO I lol'd so heard at the authour comments ;___; I hope Detective Tarson wins the WTF award~~ *A*


I feel the need to say that in the 'related videos' section there was a title that distracted me from actually watching your video;
"George and Alan have sex with Jesus Christ"
I was a bit worried about watching your video after reading that. e0e

FunnyDudeR, February 8th, 2010, 3:25 pm

Oh yeah I saw your video of the play on YouTube... YOU GOT HUNG (that was an edit (yes my grammar sucks)) :O

SushiGummy, February 8th, 2010, 5:18 pm

@Loverofpiggies: Well, fortunately, Czar Squid and I are working on a little secret project that's going to make most of the twists and turns of this comic predictable ahead of time. Don't think it'll be TOO easy, though.

@Phoenix of Chaos: LIES. I'M NEVER STRANGE.

@Big A2: If you liked that, you're gonna love all the crazy logic that I'll throw around in this comic.

@WalkedAway: I hope it wins EVERY SINGLE AWARD, even though it can only be nominated for 3. Oh, and the related videos are only strange because the video's new. I bet all the related videos will be mine in a couple weeks.

@FunnyDudeR: It was the best role ever. I got to be in 2 scenes, large and in charge, yelling at everybody and just being a jerk, then I got hung in the third scene. In other words, I was playing as myself.

SonicBoom01, February 9th, 2010, 12:06 pm

So sad that he got hung.
And here were his final words : First of all, I don't even have the game. Second, I'm going to a play in a bit. I'll post a YouTube video later about it.
I have a steam account (Username : SonicBoom01 <|SBT|>) and one of my favorite games to play is Left 4 Dead 1. I like to play with friends so I frequently invite people on my friends list (one of which is Sushi), to come on and goof-off. I try to remember who has L4D and who doesn't, but I accidentally clicked Sushi's on accident. He came on, got frustrated (That was the 20th or so time he had to tell me that), then left. At the same time I was owning in a VS match of Blood Harvest. Final score - my team: 4750, enemy team: 1246. Rounds 1-4 won by my team, round 5 won by enemy team.

SushiGummy, February 9th, 2010, 5:53 pm

Well, I wouldn't use the word 'frustrated.' That's one of those emotions I don't feel. :I

Big A2, February 10th, 2010, 12:22 am

It's starting to get more and more easier to suspect you're a taking deep breaths addict.

SonicBoom01, February 10th, 2010, 2:53 pm

*reallife example of how I'm the worst person to tell emotions*

*walks past my friend who's beating the crap out of a punching bag*
Me : Hey dude, what's got you so happy today? :D
*5 minutes later*
*walks away with a black eye, missing teeth, and a bloody nose*

Big A2, February 11th, 2010, 5:47 am

Sorry Czar, I'll edit my comment.

Drawkey, March 4th, 2011, 12:27 pm

Just as awesome as the other story XD
