Dad bod

♫ He was a boy. He was a dad. Can I make it anymore obvious? ♫

Happy Wednesday, doves. April is positively careening towards May, so we're firing on all cylinders to churn out the rest of the month's content (ugh, I hate that word). The funny thing is, we realized something about this job that would've made childhood Erin and Adam very happy. We realized that producing these weekly comics requires us to play current video games. Like, we need to purchase and play games to actually do our jobs and be relevant and all that nonsense. I mean, there's only so much mileage we can get out of the Mass Effect franchise (heads up new Mass Effect comic next week btw).

Basically, what I'm saying is that we've been playing a lot of the new God of War.

Boy oh boy, do we love it too. Adam likes the fisticuffs and remembers boring things like blocking and dodge rolls. I like repeatedly heavy-throwing and recalling my axe through baddies like I'm Thor. I'll usually do about 50 of those and then follow it up with a rage mode tantrum (if I remember to activate rage mode. Otherwise it's mostly the axe throwing I mentioned).

Yeah, it's good to be the Dad of War. Kratos really is the whole package:

  • Godlike strength and combat prowess
  • Mirror universe Travis McElroy beard
  • Fruit by the Foot skin grafts
  • Strained relationship with his son
  • Dead wife that propels him toward a Norse adventure

Who wouldn't want to bash faces in with this guy while also learning how to love again? 

Btw, here's a fun game: Take a shot every time Kratos' hand hovers over Atreus' shoulder, but he JUST-CAN'T-BRING-HIMSELF-TO-COMFORT-HIS-BOY!

...also drink every time Kratos says "Boy."

Then go to the hospital because you definitely have alcohol poisoning.

Anyway, that's all for now. We've got draugr to steamroll, graphic novel pages to finish, a wallpaper to design, a podcast to record, and a commission to ink.

<3 Erin

OH AND P.S. "ALIVE, ALIVE OH" IS TURNING INTO A WEEKLY UPDATE OH GEEZ GET HYPE OKAY WE OUT!
