Night Fox – Comic Post #106: Putting On A Show

Not caught up on the comic yet? You can go visit the comic’s archive through this link here.


This is going to be another quick post because I’m feeling particularly lazy right now. I’m probably not going to be updating next week because I kind of want to take a quick break from the comic. So far, I’ve only missed one other update in the more than 2 years that I’ve been doing this, and that was because I was in the middle of moving houses. So I’m not going to feel particularly bad at this point for delaying the comic a week, though, I’m sure none of you guys really care too much either. I’m mostly doing it because I want the free time to get some work done on other things that I’ve been doing. Most of which is still going to be comic related. So, in actuality, I’m not really taking a break from the comic as a whole, just me drawing it.

Anywho, that was all of what I wanted to say this week, so until then, I’ll see you next comic.




So yeah, new Metroid games. That’s like… yah know… pretty cool. I guess… you know… if you’re a fan of the series… or something…)

Night Fox – Comic Post #105: The Grand Entrance

When I was writing this part of the comic, I originally wasn’t sure what kind of a Spirit to make Cantaros. I just knew I was going to make him wear a kind of domino mask and was going to have super fabulous hair. Well, one day, while I was still in the middle of writing these parts, I was also in the middle of binge watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus again while I was working on the comic. This line in particular had always cracked me up, so I decided to incorporate it into Kitsiyuna’s dialogue while she was decking Cantaros in the face. Then I remembered that I actually had Fairies as one of the 50 some odd races of Spirits in Night Fox that would show up in the comic eventually, and figured that Cantaros being a Fairy just fit perfectly. So thanks Monty Python, you helped influence some of the world building in Night Fox in a fairly indirect way.

In other news, I have completely killed my sleep schedule. Straight up took it behind a shed and double tapped it in the back of the skull. Basically, I’ve been staying up past 3 AM on numerous days of the week while also simultaneously waking up at around 6 in the morning, which you know, most doctors would say is not enough time. Now granted, I don’t think I’m at a risk of exhausting myself or anything, because I pretty much do absolutely nothing with my life (you know, except this comic, but let’s be real here, in the grand scheme of things, it still is pretty much nothing). My only concern is that I do get a tad groggy in the middle of the day as a result, which is usually when I’m trying to do the bulk of my comic work. Whether or not this is going to have an affect on the quality of the comic, we’ll just have to wait and see.

But let’s be real here: the comic can’t get THAT much worse than it already is.

And with that bit of self-deprecation out of the way, I’ll see you next comic.


Night Fox – Comic Post #104: Closeted Thoughts

Remember, it’s not really offensive if the character saying offensive things is equally offensive to eeeeeeeeeveryone. That’s what we call a loophole bitches!

…Well, not really…

Anyways, another slow week for me news wise. I have been putting a little more attention into getting my side project finished in time once I realized how all over the place I was about working on it. It turns out using a checklist really helps keep you focused on specific areas of work you want to get done in a timely manner. There you go, a free lifehack for all of you. Use a checklist every once in a while. Who’d have thunk that helps, right? At any rate, I’m trying not to force myself into writing a lot of stuff for these blog posts if I don’t have anything to really say, so I’ll just stop for now, and see you next comic.


Night Fox – Comic Post #103: Feeling Classy

So aside from me moderately wrecking my sleep schedule by staying up past 2 AM and waking up at 7 in the morning multiple times last week, not much special has been going on with me. I am getting ready for another “format change” to the comic that’s going to be happening in a little over 2 months. Now, what do I mean by a format change? …Well, let’s just say I’ve done this crap twice before to less than optimal results in my own opinion. I’m hoping that the third time is going to be the charm this time and it will turn out just a little bit better. The pessimist in me is thinking that that’s probably not going to be the case, but hey, a guy can dream.

In other news, I’m slowly working on that side project still. I’m sort of all over the place with it at the moment in regards to what I’m getting done, which makes it feel like I’m not actually getting any closer to finishing it. I still have a couple of months before I consider it past deadline, so hopefully I can actually get to focus on the individual aspects of the project and get them done one by one so that I can actually finish it in time. I really hope I don’t end up dropping the ball on it, but it still feels like that could be a possibility…

That’s pretty much all I want to say for now, so until then, I’ll see you next comic.

Night Fox – Comic Post #102: A Haunting Solution

Not caught up on the comic yet? You can go visit the comic’s archive through this link here.


Remember kids, when you plan on dying, always remember to format your hard drive first, lest you end up leaving behind a Haunt that ends up distressing and harassing your loved ones with your desire to hide your weird porn from beyond the grave. Or more likely, you don’t leave a Haunt behind, and your family just ends up finding your porn anyways, which is going to make your funeral REAL awkward for everyone.

At any rate, I hope all of you had a good Mother’s Day on Sunday and that all of you actually did something special for your moms (you know, provided that they’re still alive and you’re on speaking terms with them that is). Me and my siblings this year went up with our mom to visit our grandparents in Charlottesville. We all got along and had fun and spent time with family and all of that other gay crap. Essentially, everything went okay, though, on the ride back home, we had to pull over on the middle of the highway because the engine in our car was at a risk of burning out. We ended up having to take about a 20 minute detour to get spare quarts of oil and had to be very careful not to overwork the engine again, even turning the AC off the rest of the trip to facilitate that. I was wearing all black that day and was sitting in direct sunlight for most of the ride back, so you can imagine that made me just a tad REALLY FREAKING HOT. Also, we had to drive through an area where they were doing construction (which caused traffic to slow down) where somebody had managed to get into an accident (which slowed down traffic even more), which ended up adding like 40 minutes to the trip. So yeah. The actually celebration of Mother’s Day for us went fine. It’s just that the drive back really really sucked.

Anyways, I’m done bitching about holiday traffic, so until then, I’ll see you next comic.


Night Fox – Comic Post #101: Good News Everyone!

To those whose read this comic’s title in the Professor’s voice: congratulations, you’re doing it right.

Also, what’s this? Some of the comic’s side characters are potentially converging together in the background of the plot (“plot” being used loosely here) to do something of some kind of significance on the side of the main story? Sort of like a potential “side story”? I wonder… Am I actually going to end up going anywhere with this…

Eh, knowing me, probably not. I’ll probably just end up edging you all along for weeks and weeks when it turns out that ultimately nothing comes of this… I’m kind of bad at actually resolving relevant plot points in a timely manner after all… At any rate, I’ll see you next comic.

Night Fox – Comic Post #100: That’s Retarded

Well would you look at that? The comic count has now officially reached the triple digits! (you know, discounting literally every single other comic that came before this one as I always had zeros at the front of all the numbers). Ain’t that something special?

…Well it shouldn’t be, considering the fact that this comic is actually the 133rd comic I’ve done for Night Fox. You gotta count all the pages individually for the comics I did with multiple pages after all. To be perfectly honest though, when I was first writing the script for this comic, I didn’t actually realize it was going to end up being comic one double-O. So it’s actually a bit of a happy little coincidence that the very first Spirit Alex and Kitsiyuna dealt with on screen made his triumphant return for this comic (because I’m sure everybody missed Legless Nic Cage here, who I still don’t have an actual proper name for).

At any rate, I’m still making “art assets” for my side project that I’ve been doing. I’ve definitely slowed down a bit, which I don’t consider a very good sign, but I still think I can stay on schedule enough to get it finished “in time”. As to how the side project is going to tie into the comic? Well, the next comic just might provide some insight into that… Anywho, that’s enough rambling for now, so until then, I’ll see you next comic.
