Well folks, it’s a couple years late, but this is, officially, the final Nonsense Wars post. J and I have reached the consensus that we will no longer be updating NW (if that wasn’t obvious already, but hey, now it’s official). All of the posts on the site will be archived at nonsensewars.wordpress.com, and the nonsense-wars.com URL will redirect there before the hosting runs out.
Going forward you can follow J at his Tumblr, and you can follow me on my DeviantART or visit my site, which is intended to be “a loose index of various content I have on the Internet as well as a casual dump of content that doesn’t belong elsewhere”. For various reasons I have moved/copied a handful of NW posts there as well.
Now, about the troll comic: in 2012 (yes, more than four years ago) we tried drawing silly 4komas on a super large sheet of paper, and this was the result. J never got around to posting it due to whatever. But then maybe it’s fitting for the last NW post: it’s a comic, it’s sloppy, and it’s late (but hey, better late than never, right?).
The super large sheet of paper is about 33″ x 27″, so it was difficult to get it into digital form. I think originally J was going to post it as a photo with mouseover areas such that you could see the text, but just this last weekend we tried to see if we could get something better. We tried taking a better photo, and ultimately decided to scan it in small chunks, since the bed of J’s scanner is only about A4. All in all it probably wasn’t worth it: the scans came out really inconsistently and you still can hardly make out the text. As such, I am putting a transcript beneath the comic.
Panel 1,1 (Col, Row):
J: Let’s draw a giant 4-panel comic!
D: Great idea!
D: I thought this was the sadness?
J: NOPE.AVI, it’s about drawing a 4-panel comic.
D: But what about the sadness?
J: Can it.
D: This is not funny at all.
*Drawing comics like a boss*
J: You know, you’ll be sad if that ink and water spill.
J: Put this tray under the cup and ink to avoid sadness.
*Drip tray of sadness*
J: Look out, impending sadness!
J: I’m just going to move the sadness to the table.
D: Just shut up already.
So that’s the troll comic. But wait, there’s more! For the tenth anniversary of NW we made a small graphic of D drawing J and J drawing D. This of course didn’t get posted, as it was in September 2014 (we started in September 2014), already several months after my last post, but here it is as well:
And that’s a wrap. Til next time.
