TOABN 23 is pretty neat, and almost artistic. It certainly was fun to draw. They're in the crow's nest of the USS Junk. Note that Alfred is taking his mead/beer/ale/grog/whatever in a teacup!

Oh Yeah! (a doodle)

I started "Oh Yeah!" with the head of the jumping guy. The shape of it, and to some extent, the hair, was definitely because I was thinking of Penny Arcade at the time, but after that it went on to my own style. The only other influence of Penny Arcade was probably the focus on videogames...
As for the eyeball, it doesn't have to do with anything. I had drawn that before starting the "Oh Yeah!" comic, since I love drawing eyes.

I love Danny's ship!

TOABN 21, Some Not-Too-Fear-Inspiring Warcries

Here's number 21, kicking off the week with a nice bit of combat!
Followed by a severe anticlimax mixed with...cutting-in-halfing!!!

And now for a doodle I did friday, titled "Some Not-Too-Fear-Inspiring Warcries."

Biology Doodle, TOABN 20

This is based on something my teacher said in Bio today. My teacher was talking about how some scientists get very heated about opposition to their hypotheses...and this was the result. Below it, on the same page, is TOABN 20!

Not much to report's the strip. Note the neat looking "19" to the left

Tuesday, March 20, 2007


Hey people! I have for you the eighteenth in the TOABN series. Yes, that's drama so strong its palpaple, in the second panel. Now this is strange! I wonder how they know one another? Actually, no, I don't, but YOU do!

Rowan Atkinson Live

A while back Rowan Atkinson had a live performance at Boston University. He's incredibly hilarious! He's a great comedian, but he's most famous for his Mr. Bean comedy movies.

TOABN 17, History class doodle

Hey people! Weekend was pretty hectic, and Friday saw us with some serious snow (unfortunately not early enough to cancel school). Anyways, I know you don't give a damn about that, so here's the comic:
I wonder what the scene that the Janitor found looks like...I never actually drew it. After all, I imagine it could be pretty awful, and I don't care to draw REALISTIC violence (funny-ish cartoon violence is one thing, but drawing that's just sick)

Here's a new one. As you can see, Nate and Danny are on the top. Danny looks a bit unusual though; that's because I'm thinking of giving him a scimitar, possibly and olde-style pistol, and one earring, instead of or in addition to his axe. Instead of might be nice, as it gives him a big range of weapons! There are other gems in the doodle if you look!

Well, I think we're slowly approaching catching up to the comics I'm drawing. I've finished number 30, since I started drawing them a while before this site was up, or even before I had any intention of making a site. It's number 16, people (applause!).

I REALLY like this one!

50 Unique Views!

Since only Thursday, when I began watching the number of visits and from what area using Google Analytics (a great free tool, for any others out there with websites), I've had 50 separate people view the website, including some regular reader from Shanghai! If you're reading this, Mr. Shanghai person, I'm letting you know you're awesome!

So, 50 views already! Quite an achievement, and 64% of viewers return. SWEET!


Whoah. This one's obviously Nate on some sort of mission! And take the time to appreciate the "artwork!" The bottom-right panel is showing Nate's legs as he runs.

Cooking a Beat

Entertaining video about how to cook the perfect beat. The best cooking show ever!


TOABN 13, people. You have to love the second panel. So dramatic! And over something so...unimportant (though to Nate it is more important than anything).

Done with the Thesis, Baby!

FINALLY! I've done it! I've written it! I've completed a long, thoroughly thought out, and (hopefully!) well-written paper on American history. Believe it or not, it's called "A Laughing Matter: How Watergate Changed American Political Humor". That's right. My HUGE Junior Thesis essay is about humor, and it's incredible. I just hope that Wilbach (the one grading it) agrees.

Haikus Are Easy

This is a great picture! It sounds like something I would write myself!

Friday, March 9, 2007


Here we've got number 12! It's Nate and Alfred, battling, which is, alone awesome.
And now that you've (hopefully) read the comic, you won't mind me saying I love the second panel! DODGE!

TOABN doodle, TOABN 11

During class today I drew a cool version of the title of TOABN, "Tales of a Bored Ninja", but all made of various weapons. Going in order, they are:
Pickaxe, handaxe, spear, chakram, whip, ball and chain (for 'o' and 'f'), a dagger, a sword with two odd spikes, a bladesaw, ye olde style pistol, a bladed boomerang, a halberd, a 3-section-staff, a cannon, a taser, a musket, and a cartoony torpedo.
And, after you've taken an appropriate amount of time admiring that, check out TOABN 11. That erasure in the corder is covering up the "12" that goes next to the following comic (directly below 11 on the page), since I didn't want readers to think that the second line in the strip was number 12. The erasure at the top cuts off the bottom of number 10, since the "11" projects higher than the strip itself. Odd title for the Ninja book, I know. And kinda bloodier than I mean this comic to actually be. Except for cartoon violence, in a humorous manner. Such as comic #1.

Frank Caliendo

This guy does AMAZING impressions! Check it out:

Lee Evans

The opening of this one is brilliant, and he's pretty funny.
Lee Evans Live in Scotland

3 random doodles and TOABN 10

I thought some of these came out pretty neat. The other two random doodles are from English class. The second one has a few nice comics on it. One has the guy tripping off the globe, and the other about poor internet grammar/spelling.
And now for TOABN:

Funny Phylogenetic Trees, Eddie Izzard

Eddie Izzard: Definite Article
The link above goes to the Google Video version of Eddie Izzard's Definite Article show. It's what I was watching a couple days ago. Watch it!

Now here we have a neat doodle I did in biology class, while discussing phylogenetic trees. The top half is a REAL one, but the bottom is the Religious Right version.

And here's TOABN 9! And yes, that's a shameless Monty Python reference in the last panel.

Monday, March 5, 2007


Well, here's the eighth comic in the series! And yes, that does say piratry, not piracy. It's intentional. Deal with it :D . This comic advances the plot, but the art isn't that pretty. The ones I just finished today in class are MUCH better. Number 23 is the latest I've drawn.

Later tonight, if I remember, I will post the Eddie Izzard routine, so that you don't have to hunt for it.

TOABN 7, Skiing

Number seven is now up! Who could this mysterious person be!?

Today my best friend and I took a bus up north and went skiing, and it was PERFECT! There was powder everywhere, and it was snowing the whole time, too.

As I write this, I'm listening to Eddie Izzard's standup routine...
I HIGHLY recommend checking the 5 part thing out on YouTube.

Steven Wright (standup)

This one's hilarious! I've always liked Steven Wright, but he wasn't this good when he was younger, unlike George Carlin, who was amazing younger and isn't any good now.


Alright, since I've been delaying posting since I haven't finished the touchup, I've decided that I will post daily or ever other day, and whenever I'm done with a touchup, post that as well. This way, I don't have something to keep me from updating. Here's today's strip! I WILL keep posting now, because the touchups were the only reason I avoided it.
