Night has fallen, and crime has come out to play. But the heroes of the city are gonna…take their toys away, and maybe kick sand from the sandbox in their faces a little. Metaphors.
Were I a true San Franciscan I’d probably have slipped a football reference into the 49th comic. Eh.
This is the last bit of overly in-depth zombie analysis for a while. Some changes coming to Kong Tower next week. I won’t say anything more, you’ll just have to wait and see.
Remember, you can vote every day to see a big, full-color image of a bunch of characters from this comic recreating the poster for Star Wars!
This one’s a few hours late. Sorry about that. I’ve been waiting to do this joke since I first came up with the storyline idea. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I wish I’d realized it was International Women’s Day. Feel like kind of a dick for not giving the only female character in this comic any lines. Or a face. I’ll do better next year.
Hey look, I’ve figured out how this works!

Everyone has something that they just do, habitually, whenever they’re bored. Some people might carry a book of sudoku puzzles. Others listen to music. And some just space out entirely. I, on the other hand, vastly overthink the (pseudo)scientific nature of pop-culture concepts. I’ve learned that I can justify almost anything with a bit of pseudoscience and a liberal misunderstanding of quantum mechanics. It’s a gift and a curse, really.
It’s a new month, so you have a whole new set of chances to Vote for Kong Tower, and support my dangerous overthinking habit.
Has anyone ever said “Not to be pedantic…” and actually meant it?
Dammit, I meant “Cerebrovorous” not “cephalovorous,” that’s also mixing greek and latin. I should really learn to script these out before I go to the computer.
Vote for Kong Tower, it’s good for your BRAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIINNNSSS!
Hopefully with this we’ll be getting back on track with weekly updates.
Honestly, I just liked the idea of my Jason Todd-esque character just flat out being a zombie.
Vote for Kong Tower to see more Zombie detectives and antiheroes. Also any of the other stuff in this comic you like.
As I mentioned in lieu of a comic on Tuesday, the computer on which I do all my photoshopping has crapped out, leaving me without a readily available way to shade, color, or even scan a comic. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to make a Deadpool comic, so you get one with just lines, no value, hand-written text, which I essentially just photographed with my hand-me-down phone and messed with the color on, but which has far above my usual level of gratuitous violence to make up for that.
Yes, my Deadpool Ersatz is a heavy-set young woman. But anyone who knows about Deadpool will tell you this is hardly a stretch as far as alternate versions of Deadpool go. I didn’t really conceive of her character as a version of Deadpool, but as I was reviewing my roster of planned characters, I realized she was close enough to work for this. She’s snarky, and has an impressive healing factor (which actually stems from her ability to convert one type of bodily cell into another, allowing her to turn her plentiful body fat into super-dense muscle), and she’s one of the wackier characters I’ve come up with.
Everybody enjoy Deadpool this weekend. Me, I’ll be seeing it on Sunday because I’m a pathetic loser who can’t get a date and this movie and the free admit slip I got from when I saw a fire-alarm interrupted Jurassic World is my consolation prize from the Universe.
Vote for Kong Tower, and share this on your various social medias, and maybe this comic’ll get popular enough that ladies will flock to me! That could totally happen, right? Right guys?
I realize that Rob McCobb, Zombie P.I. is probably a concept worthy of its own comic, but for the time being I’m shoehorning it into this one.
This is a new storyline that’s going to take up the next several strips, and then more at an undetermined later time. I really like this character and I’ve been planing on using him since the beginning. If you don’t get the pun in the name McCobb, try saying it out loud.
Vote for Kong Tower, because a vote for me is a vote for Zombie private detectives.
[EDIT]: My sincerest apologies, but due to the computer I do my photoshopping on breaking down, there will be nothing new on Tuesday the 9th. I’ll definitely try to get something out on Friday for Deadpool, though. Somehow. Of some sort of quality.
I struggled with an idea for a space themed comic for #42 (reference 1 of many), and the idea for a Green Lantern based arc (reference 2) that I had planned for later, when I get around to making these in color, came to mind, but I couldn’t quite get my head around it until I heard the tragic news about David Bowie (reference 3). The end result was this pop-culture-reference laden, artistically expansive comic that I have to say I’m fairly happy with.
Major Tom will return, at a later time, with all the awesome fighting that’s about to happen having occurred off-screen.
[EDIT]: Nothing new for the 26th, I have work and school is starting up and I really need to at least try to build up a buffer.
Vote for Kong Tower, or I may just give up on this before that time comes! *does the dramatic back-of-hand-to-forehead-while-looking-away thing whatever that is*
This comic goes out to anyone and everyone who actually understood the art references in it. Also anyone who got the sci-fi reference in the last panel.
I don’t even have an excuse for skipping last week. I procrastinated, mostly by reading stupid horror stories on the internet. But hey, my first comic of the New Year! Yaaaaaaaay!
If you’ve payed any attention to this comic you should’ve figured that that guy would have shown up right after a comment like “He While E. Coyote’d me!”
Speaking of comments, feel free to leave one!
It’ll be a nice treat for me to have something other than spambot comments to delete. I’d appreciate your input!
Vote for Kong Tower
This comic was delayed for a number of very legitimate reasons, including, but not limited to: the Holiday season, starting a new job, back pain, and Girls With Slingshots.
I’ve simplified how I draw Arachne/Nancy’s hair in several of these panels (not that you can really tell with how dark it is). I originally intended her dreads to look spidery and it did not occur to me how freaking hard it would be to draw that every single time.
Cityscape in trick mural unabashedly (and badly) traced from this page of Strong Female Protagonist, otherwise known as the Tuesday-Friday Superhero webcomic much much much better than mine.
Vote for Kong Tower so I can continue to rip off far superior artists. (please no one sue me. I have NO moneys)
