I am truly sorry....

Postby Paul Southworth on Wed Jun 19, 2002 8:16 am

Good GOD, I am an asshole :(

Now that we've established that, let's talk about the fate of Krazy Larry.

The bad news: I won't be doing KL anymore, at least not for a long time. It's a very long story involving graduating from college, wanting to make something of myself, and desperatley needing to try something new. Larry was a great thing that I did for many years, but I came to the realization that, if I want to make a living out of this (and I do), then I'm going to have to at least START thinking about marketability and the consumer market in general. It is evil, I know, but it is a nessacary one, unfortunatley. Were it a perfect world, we'd all get payed for doing what we loved with NO compromises, and most of us would opt to get paid to have sex...and that simply would not do.

Anyway, don't think I'm selling out!! I'm not (at least I hope not). I simply took some time off to work on new ideas, something I have not done in quite a long time while engorged in everything KL. After going through MANY MANY MANY ideas, each more horrible and contrived than the last, I believe I have come up with a feature that both satisfies my creative needs and reflects my views on life, yet hopefully will come off to people who might like to give me money as more "mainstream" than KL.

So that brings us to the GOOD NEWS....I am starting a new comic.

At this point, I've gotten about 14 comics done, and I have not felt this passionate about somethign since I stopped doing KL. I really feel good about it, and I hope you will as well. I've showed them around to a few trusted friends, and nearly 100% think it is as good if not better than KL. You can rest assured, gentle readers, that no matter what my alterior goals in this business, job #1 is always BE FUNNY.

I don't have a title yet, and am currently in negotionations to bring this feature to Keenspot. If that doesn't work, I will go indie. Either way: look for something new from me very soon.

Also, there will VERY soon be a Krazy Larry Anthology available through Keenspot. Nearly every KL strip from the past 3 years. More on this later.

I would like to reiterate how sorry I am for neglecting you and this website for so long. I would also like to reiterate that I am an ass.

Here is a small sample of what is to come. I hope you all will follow me into new comic frontiers.

I'm honestly sorry to hear about KL, Paul.

Glad to see you haven't totally dropped off the face of the planet.

However, as we never got the details of the honeymoon (damned lens cover was on), I also hope that the above tidbit doesn't reflect directly your state of marital bliss...

I understand the need as a artist to move foward even if is to the disapointment of whatever fans he or she has obtained creating a certain style (or story line in this case), so I as an artist respect you desire to move foward. However as a "normal" fan or KL(shuddap, no jokes) I can say I am deeply sadden by it's sudden halt and no ending (or at least a story line reason for it's hiadus). So as always, I'm emotionally torn by this news as fan an artist as I'm sure most most of us will be.
So Goodluck on your new endevures and creative adventures :lol:
but at the same, GOO TO HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HELL!!! *cough.. be kind I've been having a horrible summer* :evil: :evil: :evil:

Ah, haven't we all?

My A/C system in my car is giving me major trouble. and I just had a can of R-134a refrigerant explode in my face (Thank Quest Scientific supplys I was wearing a face shield and gloves). I'm also working double overtime at a job I absolutely HATE so I can go to the comic-con and San Fransico this August.

But that's life.

Now on to Paul's new comic.

I too am absolutely crushed that Krazy Larry is on indefinite hiatus. Especially since the Recovered memories storyline never came to a conclusion, and left on a cliff hanger. But the new comic is also very funny, I can't say I like it as much as KL but it is still freakin' hilarious.

Paul,
Glad to hear you're alive.
But I'm disappointed to hear of KL on the shelf. I read the new strip and I'm going to have to wait to pass judgement. I can't tell by 1 strip. Good luck though, I'll be waiting.

Good luck.

I will miss Krazy Larry. I will miss it even more since if the first new comic is any indication, the replacement isn't that funny at all. Goodbye Larry, where ever you are.

Postby Dezro on Sat Jun 22, 2002 5:45 am

I like it. The punchline is eh, but the third panel is pretty funny. Pretty damn funny. The second panel brings a chuckle with the "various shapes and sizes" bit.

ANYWAY
Where did that come from?

KL was my first introduction to a truly insane comic, and I haven't really found anything of the same caliber since, with the possible exception of Bob the Angry Flower. Good luck with your future comics, Paul, you'll need it.

We all thought you dropped off of the face of the earth.

And I don't know, 3+ years is a good run for a comic. And the new comic looks freakin' funny. If we've been hanging around this long, trust me-noone's going to abandon this comic(or any other you do).

Good to see you're still with us!

no one is entirely happy KL is over Euphoria... but you can't blame a guy for wanting to move on.... KL was one of the funniest comics I have seen on keenspot but this new project may work out funnier... whos to know unless things move on ?

each to his/her own.... I found KL to be pretty damn funny it even spawned an alt nick I used for a while..

the new one.. this one single strip can't be as funny as the entire collection KL but it might pan out to be as good OR better... whos to know

Same writer. New characters.
And at least he isn't pulling a Tartakovsky and leaving KL in the hands of some incompetent retard who thinks a few KL nude scenes will make up for his lack of humor.

The very thought of nude scenes in KL scares the heck out of me. Waiting patiently and hoping KL comes back...

Kitty go bye bye?!?!

Postby Xenodochium on Tue Jul 08, 2003 12:20 pm

:-? let me get this straight... gween kitty went bye bye? I wondered why it was cut short... I WANT KITTY! NICE, GWEEN KITTY!!! I want nice cwazy gween kitty come over, gut people. I want hug nice gween kitty. I be wike a cwazy kitty, but I be boring primate... I mean, pwimate... :cry:
KITTY! COME BACK! Maybe gween kitty can come back sometimes when nice man can't think up anything for the other stwip? Maybe kitty can torment characters in other stwip.? I WANT KITTY COME BACK! "KITTY! COME BACK!!!" :(
:roll: whatever, man... Guess what? On the news in Cleveland several years ago, I saw a REAL green kitty! They named her Miss Greenie. Creative, huh? Unfortunately, they fixed her, so there will probably not be any more.
You know what? Gween kitty needs hug! I wish I could hug him... at least if he didn't murder me in cold blood and sell my organs and stuff.
Maybe he could will himself to be drawn and...
GWEEN KITTYYYY!!!!!! I WANT MY KITTY BACK! I WANT HIM TO BE A SADISTIC JERK! I WANT ZEKE TO KILL HORKENPIE AND PUCK! ZEKE IS THE REAL EVIL!
KITTYYYYY!!!!
GWEEN KITTY COME BACK!
some of us aren't scared of you, which is why I openly write in this way... :wink:

Xenodochium

I guess then, I can still send in fan art? At least it would finally get me to do some artwork and finally plug in my scanner since September!!! I'll be sure to send in SOMETHING VEWWY ANNOYING. At least it would be for Larry - I mean, Kitty. It would be funny to actual people, though. I hope.
