0489 – Rebirth

                      « First Post Last Post »           

I’m back.

It’s coming up on ten years since I started this comic. A whole decade online. The world wide web is only 22 years old, and Heroes Inc. has been on it for almost half that time. In those ten years a lot has happened in my life; I went to college, got engaged, graduated college, got a good paying job, discovered how unethically that business was run and left that job, was unemployed, got a new job, left my fiancee, got a new fiancee, bought a house, got married, and in about seven months I’ll be a father. In all that time though, you readers have supported my silly little comic and I feel like an ass for having updated as sporadically as I have, especially now that it’s been a year and a half since a real comic.

So here’s the deal: I still have a story to tell. I want to see this comic completed as much or more than all of you. I’m going to double down on my efforts to achieve that goal, starting now.

As you may notice, I’ve updated the page a bit. I’m streamlining things here. I got rid of the ads since they never made me any money, and I dropped the affiliates since they’ve all dropped off the face of the earth as much as as I did. I got rid of those obnoxious comic vote buttons, and I even worked up a new theme (which I’m still tweaking so bear with me). But the most important update is the comic itself. I originally set the comic up to fit on a 640×480 resolution screen, which was the most common resolution at the time. As I’ve matured and developed my style, so has the technology I’ve used, and the technology used by my readers. For the sake of expanding my canvas, I’ve upgraded Heroes Inc to HD, or at least H-er D. This will let my now-rendered-3D pages be much more well seen.

Now, of course, I’m still doing this as a hobby and not a job, so updates will still be kinda sporadic as I can get to them, but I’ll aim for one page a week. This may drop off a bit around July because, as I mentioned, my wife and I are expecting our first child, so that will inevitably cause some delays in my free time activities. However, I will do my best to keep producing content. As soon as little Robert Junior can pick up my old SNES controller, I’m sure I can be working on this more often again.

To leave you with a teaser, I’ll just let you know that I’ve been working on a few bits to post in the coming weeks; one is a massive infographic that summarizes the plot so far, one will be something of a “Previously On Heroes Inc…” clip show, and for those who have been waiting for real content, I’ve been busy modeling the Blackbird from Chrono Trigger, and we’ll be seeing some action with Link’s group very soon.

Once again, thank you all for reading, and check back soon for updates!

  1. Welcome back
    I was waiting patiently for this day to come
    Checking every few weeks to see if you were back

    I checked at the right time

  2. decided to read through the archives to kill some time at work, see this post, sooo happy, glad to have you back man

  3. I’ve found a glitch with the new page layout. If you go into the archive and select a page you can see the comments on that page, but there aren’t any back or forwards buttons. I hope that this gets fixed soon.

  4. He’s back!!!! 😀

    To be honest, I never doubted you. The comic never continued, but the site never went down either.

    Sprite comics can be more than pointless humor. And in this time of memes, selfies, and shallow jokes, the internet needs one of the great heroes to come back. For the stories to return. And the one to start that, is you, Robert.

  5. Woohoo! After seeing several of my favorite webcomics either end or get canceled in the past two months, it’s wonderful to see that this one is returning! Nice to have you back. Really love the new format too.

  6. 最初のものは、エマニュエル・ブーシェの合併症の1つに不思議な三次元のダイヤルを除いて通知のうちの場合、サファイアクリスタル。後者はといえば、私はより多くの時計会社を使用したドーム型サファイア結晶のようなこのグレアの傾向ではないことを願います。 ブランドコピー時計 と同様に、このサファイア結晶に及ぼすarコーティングの他の通知をしなければ何か特定の形状と厚み。まだ具体的には、私はパネライ、あなたを思っています。

  7. 鋼のや金のバージョンがとても類似しているので、私は彼らが両方ともである性質のいくつかを議論するのを許します。第1のケースのサイズは、古典的なオメガスピードマスタームーンウォッチスタイルの場合には適度の39.7mmワイドである。オメガ・ブラウンのストラップで彼らとペアを選びましたが、この場合において、白のコントラスト縫い目による美しいマットアリゲーターストラップ。ちょうど下の40 mmのワイドで、この服装腕時計のようにたくさん着、フォーマルな服装と長いそでのために良いことだが、その古典的な観察を絶え間なくオメガスピードマスターがまだあります。

  8. 彼のアプローチは魅力的ですが、この微妙な問題について彼を引用します:「私は、信仰そのものと私の作品を結びません。私は、私が時間を言っているの歴史に魅了されたので、宗教に関連した時計を作成します。人類のすべての神聖な本の時間について学んだ方法についての情報の驚くべき量があります。この知識を反映するために時計を作成する記念碑的な研究と仕事を必要とします。」そのようなすべての素晴らしい歴史の専用の記事―あるいは五千ページの本に値するでしょうが、現在の問題のために―しかし、彼の最新の創造に集中しましょう。

  9. ティソのマーケティング戦略を巧みに狙われた各地の若い女性。からロンドンファッションウィークの協賛、Indy巡茶」とRacing LeagueドライバーDanica Patrick君、ティソ表向きの若い女性はきっと市場。コピーブランドでも、ティソ表は唯一の。女は男よりもっと好きだから腕時計が飾り物を持って、ますます多くの企業がいる関心はこのプレート。
