Well I updated again. Whoopie. What does this mean? Simply that I have not given up. I haven't quit. And I will update with all my resolve from now on. Lets just hope it lasts. In the meantime, it might interest you to know that I am relatively angry right now. Not just with how this came out in the end, but also because certain people are trying to thwart me. What are they getting at? Bugging me to update then trying to stop me when I do? Well, regardless of that, the gallery will be up by the end of the week. So there!

Well, I'll make this short. Thanks to Steve I finally got the Fan Art page operational so go check those out cause they're really cool. Also, you might have noticed that most of the archive images are now working (thanks -again- to Steve) so browsing should be a tad easier. As for updating, I really have no excuse other than I've gotten into some sort of rut...and I could hypothetically get out if I wasn't working full time. Because my job severely cuts into my drawing schedule. HOWEVER, I pretty much have #51 worked out and it'll be up shortly. I doubt I'll wait until Saturday to post it, so you might wanna keep checking back daily.

And that's Duck News. I'm Hugh McQuacken. *quack quack quack*

Hey everyone.

Well, it's time once again for E3 meaning I'll be away from my computer for a week. However, FighterChick Cam has stepped in to make sure you are entertained. The greatest thing here also is that I am using these three comics as a springboard back into normal updation. As the recent switching of jobs made it really hard to keep working. Anyway, enjoy.

Hey everyone.

In case you're wondering why I haven't updated, it's because I haven't had the internet since early last week. I was able to get on in about 3 minute incraments since last Monday until Thursday when my service went out completely. Regardless, with connections that short, my FTP client wouldn't connect to the Keen server long enough to...well anyway, I couldn't load anything. I will try and update tommorow, but we'll have to see where this internet issue goes.

If I can, I'll go ahead and update and if my comp crashes again, then you'll have to wait. Sorry about all that.

Thanks largely to some unscheduled family trauma, I had to postpone the coloring of

Newscast #50: Milestone 1

until just a few hours ago. So it's going up on Tuesday instead. Which is fine, because that means that you readers will still get my gift. I want you all to know though, I might only offer it for ONE DAY. Which means it will be avaliable for download on Tuesday, April 5, 2005 ONLY!

Course, I am a little flexible (read: lazy) with things like that, so I might leave it up for an extra day or two...but don't chance it. I mean, it's nothing spectacular, but it IS Newscast, it IS free, and hey, it's a great thing. So give it a download and keep enjoying Newscast. Because I certainly enjoy bringing it to you.

Hey everyone.

Well, there were some problems, mostly regarding me wearing myself to the point of exaustion, working on a logo, your #50 gift, the comic itself, and my new ....job.... Anyway, I fully intend to put the comic up later today, but if I don't sleep, then I'll be going insane and trust me, the outcome there would be bad no matter what happens.

Anyway, please come back and check it out, cause it'll be up.

Hey again,

Well, the worst Easter (relatively speaking) has come and gone leaving me a crippled and broken individual with dark circles under my eyes.


I thought I'd go ahead and let you know that Newscast #49: Death of Innocence will update on schedule tonight at Midnight (or whenever autoKeen gets to it. I think it's actually closer to 3:00 a.m. thereabouts...) Regardless, I uploaded it and it's ready to go up. So give us a read tommorow for the shocking climax!

By the way, the Gallery will be up sometime soon. It's not a major priority at the moment, but I'll get to it when I can. Cause I know you want it baby.

Well everyone, Happy Easter.

NOTICE: I don't care what holiday you celebrate, or what you believe so if you're offended by me saying "Happy Easter" then go somewhere else cause I hate it when people are that soft-skinned. I mean, come on. It was an offering of goodwill that you turned into some sort of diabolical plan by me to insult your lineage. I think not. Maybe you should wear a sign that says "I don't believe in Easter" so the rest of us would know not to mention it to you.

But then, if you aren't offended by me saying "Happy Easter" then everything is cool. Stick around a bit won't we?

In other news, you may have noticed the new layout for the page. Isn't it loverly? Go to the Newscast forum or send me an email to tell me what you think. Cause I love to hear from people.

Speaking of updating, you may have noticed that I didn't this week. Well, I started my new job on Monday and I'd be lying if I said I was enjoying it. But regardless of that, I had no time to work on new comics all week. I have one, and I might update today, but because of the Keen crash yesterday, and the 14.7 hours I spent JUST trying to get the new layout up, (which still isn't working 100% properly) I think I am gonna take the holiday off. So please check back Tuesday for a new comic and (hopefully) working fanart.

Gatcha ba Goose and Happy All Inclusive Non Judgemental Generic Holiday to all.

Well, Keen is down again. As soon as it's up again, I'll update. Sound good?

Hello everyone. Quick note. Thanks to Terd and The Steve, the new Newscast layout is going to be t3h r0><><0r. Also, the fan art page finally works. I encourage you to mosey on over and look at them all now.

Sayonara for now

Sorry I missed the update on Tuesday. I will never again say: "Newscast is back on schedule" because bad luck seems to follow that phrase. Anyway, I will be updating on Saturday so no worries there.

Also with the update will come a new page layout (finally) I got so many people who hated my page, and me by association, that I decided to finally do something about it. So it will soon be.

That's all for now.

Well, despite the fact that today Newscast had one of it's highest 'unique hit' days in some time, I am feeling down. Why? Because by my estimation, for every 1/2 person who likes Newscast, there are 75,298,509.6388 people who hate it.

Thanks to message board poster Rev, who spent much time plugging the comic on random forums (God bless him) I actually went over the 100 mark. Of course, I don't expect the trend to last, but it was nice to see it for a day.

Well, despite the fact that Newscast apparently sucks worse than anything else on the internet, I guess I'll keep plugging away at it because I am kinda hopeless like that. Also because I am now only one comic away from #50. I should be on something like #98 by now, but I am a slacker, what can I say?

If you like Newscast, I urge you to let me know. Why? Because I am very insecure and need constant positive-reinforcement, otherwise, who knows what might happen? Well, anyway...Newscast #49 is coming Tuesday. Watch for it.

Oh, and one last thing...I'm thinking about adding a Gallery. What do you think?

Well, Newscast #48 is on the way. Actually, I have been quite ahead of myself this week for the first time in ages. I had the script done by Sunday, the revised script and drawings done on Wednesday and yesterday I finished the layout and started the actual drawing. Today, it'll be done and up and...and...yay!

While #48 isn't the greatest to date (I kinda say that about ALL my comics until I look back on them later) it does feature some of my favorite Newscast drawings of all time. Kioko's "Kitties" line being the best one. But you'll see what I mean.

Yesterday was the first ever Newscast Gathering, where the original crew members were invited to meet and discuss all things Newscast, which we did. Sadly, Moero, Sparky, and Lonewolfe couldn't attend. Moero goes to a college outside the valley and doesn't get Spring Break (which is why we met in the first place), Sparky lives in Phoenix, and Lone lives on another continent! Ah well. It was fun anyway, discussing future storylines, rereading old storylines and working on stuff for....


Which I advise all fans to come to because we'll have some kick-butt stuff there. Plus me, possibly a few others and...well, it'll just be fun.

Lastly, I have procured another job. Unfortunately, I am now working for Discover Card which severely cuts into my self esteem. I am getting out of there as quickly as I can, because I really want to get back to video games. My first love. I will give Discover a chance though, but they're severely cutting into my comic making time and also they want to keep me from going to E3 this year. With all three new consoles playable this May, I'll quit before I miss it. I can always get another job.

Well, I'm back again. Newscast will be updating today, but I wasn't able to get it up by midnight because I had a job interview this morning at 9:00 which meant getting up at 7:00 which meant...oh, forget it. Anyway, the comic will be updating as soon as it's finished, and if that means Wednesday then so be it. And then Saturdays will roll out as planned.

In other Newscast related news, the first (of what I hope to become many) live appearances where I will be selling stuff is fast approaching. We call it, Newscast Live! What it REALLY is, is me selling Newscast related stuff at the Nihon Matsuri festival to raise some living money. But hey, it's not just for me. It's for you, the fans, as well. Anyway, check out the full page of info on it that is also going to be up later today.

CIAO for now.
