I guess I should explain myself.

Some of my hobbies include toy collection, photography, wasting time on my computer, long walks on the beach, and Jessie's girl. So I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes I'd combine some of those and make myself my own online comic, starring the 25th Anniversary Joes.

Some friendly Fighting 1:18thers (1:18th Fighters? What's the shorthand for members of this community?) invited me here and asked me to share my stuff with you, so dig in and I hope you like it.

Without further ado, I present you with "Ages 25 & Up," comics with kung-fu grip and ball(joint)s of steel. Here are the first 4 archaic issues that look like crap compared to modern issues. Hey, I made them 3 years ago without much of a plan, so I guess they could've turned out much worse, right?









Er... It gets better, trust me. Let me know what you think, drop hate, go to town.

Thanks, man! I tried to make Flash having lame jokes a running gag, but I haven't used it nearly frequently enough for it to be really running. It came up again during the Helix story, I think, but I don't remember when I else I made him do that. Guess I'll have to use it more!

I too have been a fan forever bro, well, you know that. lol. Good to see i have another spot to read the latest. looking at these early ones again, Man, you have come a long way with the photography and the backdrops.
some of my favorites are Beard force (of course) amnd when you starting transitioning some of the figures to the 25th. They were classics.

edit - Ha, you posted that one (clutch updated) should have read them first. lol.

Dude, you know I've been a fan since these first issues! My favorite joke was one of the holiday issues where Stalker pauses and says, "What? You thought I was gonna say Kwanza?" I look forward to this every week and am glad it will be available here at the Fighting 1:18th!

I believe the technical term is "Fuckers".

At least that's what everyone else seems to call us :D

Though that does bring into something we didn't really think of, we could, for all intents and purposes be a site devoted to exclusively fighting AGAINST the 1:18th scale. Maybe we are a ragtag group of ex-1:18th scale devotee's who have taken to the rancid depraved depths of 1:6th collecting.. or even worse 1:144 table top miniatures.. eeevil.

But yeah.. like I was saying, fuckers.

Welcome :) You're hilarious!

This first arc brings back the memories. Clutch looks so natural holding the Jack bottle. Also, I could be wrong but I think that's Lifeline's only appearance ever. Even in the early stages, you did a good job posing the figs. Stalker, SE, Scarlett, Clutch and the hoe really jump out at me.

Freedooooom! Good to see you! I think that was the first Christmas issue I'd made. We'll get there real soon!

Good times, eh? Lifeline appears again, usually with Doc, but they don't tend to show up too frequently. I'm something of a perfectionist, I guess, so most of the time I try to make things look good. Stuff like poses and talk bubbles and whatnot. When I'm short on time, I'll tend to half-ass stuff. Like this week's comic... I haven't finished it yet!

Thanks a lot! Stay tuned because more of the updated characters will be popping up... and other non-Joe characters, too!

Here are some more comics for you guys.

First up, #5 "The Silver Screen," which was something of a movie-raeg strip. Sorry about that.




Following that, I decided to try my hand at an "alternate-universe" sorta story, one which does not take place in the usual Ages 25 & Up universe (or "A25Universe," if you will). It's a little long and not persistently funny, but I hope you'll put up with it. (Humour me, yes?)

Oh yeah, I'd like to apologize for how shitty this next story is in terms of pacing, writing, blurry photos, etc.













Dun dun DUUUUUN! What happens at a time like this? Break for commercials!

piss off Eddie, it's funny as shit. Never mind Eddie, he just has a dick up his ass and has no sense of humor. ;)

When you're medicated like me, humor like this is really funny. Even my 3 year old daughter came up to me and ask "what's so funny"?
Eddie's cool, we go way back. I respect his opinion and honesty! And I don't mind folks bustin' my balls, either.

Feel free to drop hate if y'all want. I have some choice words about this old crap, too...

Wait, is that just some kind of friendly banter between you guys? Shit, I guess I'M the one without the sense of humour because I totally missed that!

If you look closely, you can see the blue sticky-tack I used to keep the helmet in place. Rookie mistake!

And speaking of Green Lantern, he shows up in the next Batteries Not Included strip, which I'll have up soon. I'm working on the brand-new A25U issue right now and I'll have it up some time today.

The background's just a printout. I had printed and was folding up a couch until I remembered I had that wooden furniture.

Of course it's just friendly banter between us, we're just giving each other shit. It's what makes this site. :D
I think I'll fit in just fine!

Yea, we talk shit to each other all the time Numbers.

I skipped over the new one, until I have more time. Gonna check out PGS again first!
Sounds good! I'll post the rest of the PGS story tomorrow.

I spent yesterday reading every issue. I officially hate you and myself for not reading it before.
Damn Canuckleheads killing off America's greatest heroes
Hot damn, you did a shit-ton of reading!
(We also burned down your White House that time, but we're sorry.)

Awesome!

Great Holiday comic. Good to see the Cap back. I hope we get to see your classic Cap again in time for his new movie :)
When does that come out? Maybe I can work something in.:D

Yeah when something catches my interest I usually dont put it down.
The white house things ok, Im sure yall were just freezing and jealous of our awesome weather. If it makes you feel better when I was on vacation in Hawaii I did some really bad stuff to two canadian girls, they seemed to enjoy it though

Captain America comes out in the US on July 22nd :) (Not sure what July 22nd translates to in Canadianese though).
Okay, good, so the Alpha Flight movie comes out on the 22nd up here.

Highfive.

Time for more comics! Let's finish that Plastic Gear story, yes?






Okay, so following that alternate-universe story, I went back to the regular-ass A25Universe.








This one's not part of any particular story:




Here's the first Christmas issue I made:




Next time, I'll start the next story, introduce Scarlett's twin sister, and the silent 21st issue!

Some classics right there. My fav line in PGS: "How hot is your niece?"

I forgot how good the Breaker story was! Short but awesome!

Tapping the Ram is still in my top 5. Might be your best 1 shot comic that you have done imo.

i love seeing all these again...Storm Shadows text font kills me, lol
Is it because the font is hard to read? I'm having a hard time reading it myself, and I smeggin' wrote this crap!

Thanks, Monkeywrench! Looking back at it, man did I waste a lot of space in Tapping the RAM. Look at all that gutter space! I'd like to think I'm a bit more efficient these days. :cool:

Alright, time for another story. Let's rock!



BONUS: The Scrabble board!



Silent 21st issue:



Now back to the Scarlett story.







TO BE CONTINUED!

Also, I didn't remember just got juvenile some of these old strips were. Hope that doesn't bother ya too much.
