A long, long, time ago I was messing around on the internet when I came across the web comic Bob and George. It was unlike anything I had seen before. David Anez used Mega Man sprites to create his very own web comic. It was original, creative, and looked like something I could do myself.
I quickly found out all I could about video game sprites and sprite comics. I read other great sprite comics like Super Adventure Quint and Crashman & Bass (as well as other webcomics like Homestar Runner, Melonpool, Zortic, College Roomies from Hell, and Sinfest). Before long I was well on my way of making my own Mega Man sprite comics. That journey began May 2004.
At the time I was also working on website designs and thought I would have my own site up to start posting my comics. But life has a way of changing priorities and so all the comics got put in a folder to sit for awhile.
Four years later in 2008 I brought my comics out and gave them an update using some of my Photoshop skills. I also began work on an origin storyline using 8-bit graphics from the NES Mega Man games. Again I thought I would start up a website to post my comic but yet again I put them back in a folder to sit for awhile.
10 years has past since I created my first Mega Man sprite comic and now I believe is the time to truly start my Robot Rejects comic strip. I hope you get a few laughs but honestly I’m doing it simply because I enjoy making them.
The animated gifs you see here were once upon a time my idea for the title. Though not horrible they aren’t nearly as nice I would have liked them. Animated gifs and videos take up so much time. So I definitely respect all of those authors who take the time to make them.
Anyway, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Let’s see where this thing goes.
