Tonight finds me in a weird mood. Today was stressful. I don’t want to do anything right now. I don’t want to draw. I don’t want to read, watch television or eat dinner. I just want to go to bed.
I always think of things to talk about for this blog, when I am at my day job. I keep thinking there will be some prolific post that will change the way you see the world. Ha ha ha. No. There will not be. It’s just garbage. I keep thinking I should just delete this, but then I remember there are almost no posts on the blog portion of this site.
Whatever. I’m going to bed. Later Blowholes.

Greetings Programs, I hope this finds you well. I am happy to say that updates are almost complete and new comics are coming soon. I can honestly say that these comics are pretty much the only thing that gets me through the day. Whoa, that sounds a lot more sad than I intended. Ha ha.
I just wanted to touch base with the four of you who actually read this, another joke, maybe. I’ll post the meaning of life at a later date.

I want to say thank you to everyone who came out last night to the opening of my show. I cannot express in words how it makes me feel to see this kind of support! I also want to give a special thank you to the staff at Rivet, for giving me this opportunity, Old Familiar Barber Shop, for always making me feel like a rock star, and my wonderful girlfriend, who pushes me everyday to be a better man. There are a lot of folks that I want to thank individually as well, but I’m sure I would miss one or two, so I will just say, thank you, you are all in my cool book.
“We’ve made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And *I* will make them pay for what they’ve done.”
If you don’t know who said that, or where it’s from…well, I just feel sorry for you.
First, let me say, NEW COMICS COMING JUNE 25! No joke. No bee ess. I am working on comics now, and they are pretty rad. I’m done screwing around. Everything else comes in second place after my comics. I’m going to say NO to things. No more favors. No more freebies. I’m sick of it. Life is passing me by, and I am tired of being pissed off about it.
I will also be trying to post more of my stupid ramblings and bad intentions here. You know, for the children. I have been blessed with a few great inspirational people and things happening right now. It makes me only want to draw more.
Thanks to you all who keep checking back and say nice things about my stuff…and for those of you who don’t…I’m gonna throw you down an elevator shaft…onto some bullets.
…and it was Picard, you muggle.

“It’s not fair!”
I said this out loud today. As soon as I said it I realized my mistake. I know this. I know how unfair life is, and how cruel it can be. So, with everything going on outside RobotBully, I am going to put the comic on hold for a couple of months. There will be a new comic on March 12th. I’m hoping that all the bee-ess I am dealing with in just about every aspect will have been dealt with. Now, if everything has a nice, happy ending…that’s for the powers that be to decide.
Since I started posting this year, I have been reminded of how much I love making comics. I am reminded how it makes me happy. And I cannot help but feel that all the things I have to deal with in real life seem to want to take that away from me. So, most likely, I will deal with it the best way I can…like a drunken six year old hell-bent on revenge. If I can’t do that, I will just keep quiet and deal with it like an adult. But let’s be honest, we all want to see the six year old me come out!
All joking aside, these comics make me happy and I am so glad that people read them. I have no plans to stop doing these comics. I am just busy with real life things. Someone told me that I always go to the “funny.” Well, I am being very serious when I say that life has me a little overwhelmed right now. I am looking to myself to be the strong one, no one else, and take on these challenges head on. Please wish me luck and check back next month.

Greetings. If you are reading this, well, then most likely, we are friends, family, or possibly some kind of silly acquaintance. Whatever the reason you are here, thank you. It means you give a crap. So, thank you for that.
It has been an amazing last few months. Once again, I feel like Uatu The Watcher. I, for some reason, have been privy to some of the most awesome, stupid, and just plain horrible events a person should see. Dramatic? You bet your sweet bippy, that’s what makes me such a great artist…life experience. ( ‘great artist’? HA! Damn, I’m funny.)
So, as the title says, I cannot tell you everything, but what I can do is make a few blog posts about some of the events that have happened-including getting a few steps closer to achieving a life long dream! What I can do is get back to throwing you people some comics and art. So, that being said, you guessed it, new comics are coming soon. And I know what you might be thinking, ‘Oh John, you say that all the time, but don’t deliver!’ To that, I say, shut up stupid! I’m a busy man, day job, saving lives, political strife, at home and abroad! So of course I can’t be on the schedule I would like to be.
There you go, new comics coming soon. I’m shooting for next month. Check back and read some old strips. You might have fun. Thanks, J
I hope today finds everyone in good spirits. If it does not, just hit the reset button. New comics are coming this week. I just get distracted with real life. There’s your super villain kids! Real life sucks, that’s why I do this, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Oh, and I still hate school buses.
if you know what the title of this post is referring to, well, then you know that this it’s time for some changes.
There will be some changes here at Robot Bully. Nothing too crazy, nothing to lose sleep over. Because, that would be sad. So, let’s get started.
I have decided to drop the title, ‘Monster Valley High’. There are a few reasons for this. The first being, I no longer wish to limit my world to the chaos of the public education system. There will always be a Rondo Hatton Memorial High…in our hearts and on the internet…I just had to drop the title. The biggest reason being a crappy toy line and cartoon called…you guessed it…’Monster High’.
Have you seen this trash? It’s pushing the lowest common denominator of horror to preteen girls (yes, there are a few male characters, but let’s be honest, it’s aimed at little girls). It’s lame, just lame. The characters are dressed like something out of the Jersey Shore. So parents, when your little one opens a gateway to Hell, and has an STD, you know who to blame.
The hilarious thing is, recently being at a comic con, when I was pitching my comics to someone, a stranger blurted out, ‘You did Monster High, the thing on TV?’
It was time for a change.
The second change is there will be updates on Thursdays. I struggled for a long time with this. I thought, ‘Why not do Tuesdays, and just try to update a second day during the week?’
The thing is, I say I will, but I won’t. I just have no time. Between, my day job, Luche Libre, and home life, I just don’t have time…but…that’s not the main reason. The big reason for this change is backgrounds. Take a look. No backgrounds. When I started Robot Bully, the idea was to do three panel, stand alone comic strips. In, out, and funny. It’s all I wanted. Now, I want something else. I want bigger stories, and bigger payoffs. I will be doing these backgrounds for now, and then I will announce a new background artist. Someone I trust and love like a brother. If you like this comic, trust me, you are going to love this guy. So, look out on Thursdays for a brand new page. Keep in mind, as soon as I can quit my day job, I will be posting new comics two to three times a week.
I hope you, loyal reader, will not be turned away from my comics. I am doing this to put out a better product. I hope you understand.
Thank you from the bottom of my cold, dead, heart, J
Hey folks, it turns out I will be at Mid Ohio Con in a limited capacity. I am helping Rivet Gallery (The link is on the LINKS page-imagine that!). They have graciously offered to let me have a corner to sell prints and do commission sketches. Nice.
Friday’s (October 21, 2011) comic will be up sometime this weekend…so stop freaking out.
Thanks for checking out the site!
