TimThis comic is another one of Ray’s little surprises. I was all ready with a great comic idea (which we WILL do next week), and then Ray said he had a comic he wanted to do but he wasn’t going to tell me what it was. He asked if I was okay with that, but of course I couldn’t know whether I’d be okay with it until I saw it! Now that I see it, I’m definitely okay with it. In fact, it’s just what I needed last night after accidentally deleting every post and every comment this site has ever had (and then fortunately restoring a backup). In response to the comic, I will say this: HE BROUGHT IT UPON HIMSELF. Ray, you asked me to do an acoustic version of Super Sonic Racing AND get Sarah to record her voice?!? This is harder than getting me to listen to a podcast, so you’re lucky you got the files AT ALL. While the podcast was definitely worth all the hard work we (mostly Ray) put into it, I don’t want to do one like that for a very, very long time.

RayBased on a true story. I became incredibly sick on Sunday, and was forced to re-enact Squirtle’s “Water Gun” special move throughout the day. All this while I was trying to edit a 50-minute beast of a season-finale podcast that required ridiculous amounts of editing every ten seconds or so. To make the whole matter worse, I needed some crucial audio files from Tim who, since Friday, kept promising he would have them to me “the next day.”

So I started dreaming up this comic on Monday and decided I would roll with it, with or without Tim’s approval. I told him I would handle the comic this week but that he couldn’t know what it was. Still doubting my judgment skills, Tim obviously became quite worried at what I was brewing. He asked me if it at least had to do with video games. I couldn’t even promise him that, obviously.

So I sent him some “vector previews” from time to time, as I often do, to help keep him guessing. I was just messing with him though, as these “previews” were not related to the comic at all.

By the time I was done with the comic yesterday, Tim was having a nightmare experience trying to get an enormous problem with the site fixed, which made me feel a little guilty of making a comic that pokes so much fun at Tim’s reason for “not being there,” but he loved it. Of course he would love it. After all, we are both hard working friends with a good sense of humor.

Well, at least I am…

    Totally awesome guys. So glad to finally see this in comic form. Oh yeah, I got hit by hurricane Marth Ike and have no power. That explains where I’ve been! But yeah, GCG, keep up the good work.

    Also, that doesn’t look like your iPhone Ray >.>

    I’ve got it in a black case at the moment.

  3. Tacos says:

    Haha. NCG. Completely reminds me of the “It prints money” pictures for Nintendo. And Ray looks like a zombie, with the bloodshot eyes and drooling mouth.

    Also, I think the mp3 version of Super Sonic Racing would be great. Even if its just the 15 or so seconds that you recorded.

    Come on Tim, put it up! The fans demand it!

  5. steve-ohs says:

    Great Comic Guys! Its pretty much how I picture you guys every week.

  6. D3vin says:

    Is it just me or does Tim remind me of Scrooge McDuck from Ducktales? aaaahhh money, money, money! all he needs is three identical and color coded nephews and wacky misadventures! It could be a cool spinoff!

    I demand the last panel as a desktop bg, any other takers?!

  7. Blue-Blur says:

    I think we need a new SSBB or Sonic comic. Sorry, Tim but I really love them both just like Ray. It’s Uncanny! Ray may like the idea of a new SSBB/Sonic comic so that’s just my opinion! =)

    Seconded. That was actually my first reaction to the comic.

    The only problem with this comic is that it is a bit of an inside joke. I have a friend who reads the comic but does not listen to the podcast. He wont get it.

    You know what would also be cool? A background of all the 2P Start logos. But just the circle part that changes.

  9. PkmnTrainerJ says:

    Egads! The swimming pool full of money has materialised! Nice comic guys. Just been trying to make my way through the podcasts at the moment. I think I have about 20 or so to go, but I do intend to listen to them all.

  10. Narnian says:

    I agree with the Dr that newer people won’t get it, but it’s hilarious for those of us who do. 🙂 A background of the logos would also be amazing.

  11. Dominator_101 says:

    Awesome comic guys!
    Though, I don’t know how much those goggles will help Tim see in a pool of money…

    You mean aethered by hurricane ike. He was fighting for his friends. Gustav especially.

    Anyway, PDCNTBBNBEG![Pretty Decent Comic, not the best, but not bad either guys!]

  13. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Great comic guys! This is yet another one of my favorites. Unfortunately, a lot of people won’t get the joke.

  14. roadjcat says:

    1st panel: *slight chuckle*
    2nd panel: “Okay…”
    3rd panel”: “What the freak…?” XD

  15. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Oh, and I completely support the last panal being made into a wallpaper. *thumbs up*

  16. DrOswald says:

    I think I may be able to make the logo background myself, as not to put too much strain on poor, overworked, sickly Ray.

    In any case, I started a thread in the forum about it. if you are interested, please comment there.

    Anyway, I just noticed that Tim’s beanie looks different than normal. Is he wearing a brown swim cap?

  17. CKcheeseboy says:

    Are those Tim dollar bills? It looks like his old logo…

    And Ray does look like a zombie. Maybe he has cancer…ZOMBIE CANCER!

    Yes and yes.

  19. Rincewind25 says:

    Loved the comic guys! It’s always nice to see an in-joke for the fans, and it shows you just how many people enjoy both the comic and the podcast.

    I especially like the dollar signs in Tim’s eyes, and the goggles are a great touch.

    Again, great job! (especially because i laughed out loud at this one 🙂

  20. Noodle says:

    Yesterday was a terrible day. The website was down, and…

    well, the website was down. 🙁

  21. roadjcat says:

    NO! It’s Deftera! XD

    Oh, and still waiting for a Metroid comic from you guys. 😀

  22. Rokai says:

    It looks more like a helmet specially made for Tim based on his beanie.
    and Nice Comic Ray.

  23. Ali says:

    Perfect for a season finale. I just don’t understand what you mean by a season finale.

  24. Narnian says:

    And Ray does look like a zombie. Maybe he has cancer…ZOMBIE CANCER!

    Ray: Yes and yes.

    So, you’re saying you do have zombie cancer.

  25. lwelyk says:

    Ray: Yes and yes.
    So, you’re saying you do have zombie cancer.

    OH MY GOSH! IT’S SO CLEAR TO ME NOW! RAY’S A HEADCRAB ZOMBIE! WE WILL HAVE TO SHOOT HIS HEAD! HE’S JUST HIDING THE HEADCRAB WITH A WIG! IT’S SO OBVIOUS! FLEE EVERYONE! FLEEEEE!

    MONEY POOL BIATCH!

  27. Lozaiah says:

    Unfortunately, I don’t listen to podcasts.. in general.
    Nothing against it really, I’m just not a podcast person I guess.

    I’m sure you’re podcasts are as great as your comics! But well, not really into podcasteeing (is that even a word??)

    We have a term for that here, it’s “tina-tamad” 😀

    So having said that… I think I get the pun.. but I’m pretty sure I don’t.
    Still. It would make a great wallpaper!

  28. Anon says:

    I just noticed! In the logo Ray’s head was green and slightly tilted!

    Anyway, because I haven’t posted on this comic yet (could’ve sworn I have) here I go.

    It’s great that you guys finally have enough fans to create inside joke comics.

  29. roadjcat says:

    It’s time for another episode of incredibly obvious things that I miss…except this time, I don’t really know what it was I missed…I just know I missed something:

    I feel like I’m not getting something with the comic, it’s funny enough by itself, but as probably the only person on this site who likes Mondays better than Wednesdays, I’m obviously missing something here. Anyone care to explain? XD

    um, The Season II doesn’t premiere until next week. Nothing big, you just jumped the gun a little

    I know, I just mean that I don’t seem to get the inside joke even though I listen to all the podcasts…

  32. Tim says:

    Roadjcat,
    Come on, you’ve never heard Ray talk about the giant pool of money I hoard?

  33. roadjcat says:

    Roadjcat,
    Come on, you’ve never heard Ray talk about the giant pool of money I hoard?

    Ohhh….wait wasn’t that only mentioned last podcast, or does that just always seem to slip past my gigantic page of notes…?

    Okay, yeah I get it, but that’s kinda the general thing I was thinking before you told me.

    Well I obviously need to pay more attention…so expect even longer comments. XD

  34. D3vin says:

    Roadjcat,
    Come on, you’ve never heard Ray talk about the giant pool of money I hoard for D3vin?

    There Tim, I think this was what you meant to say.

  35. SolidSnakeSimulation95 says:

    I second the wallpaper, for the last panel. And Gravatar, still will not give me the avatar I want. I put it up like early August, and it is still not up. Anyone have any help?

  36. Tim says:

    Snake,
    There, I fixed it. The problem is you are capitalizing some letters in your email address. Gravatar requires you use the exact same syntax when writing the email address. Nice avatar!

  37. Pip says:

    Out of all the comics, this one brings the biggest smile to my face, I don’t know why but, seriously, it is so heart warmingly awesome.

    Well, awesome if you aren’t Ray >_>

  38. Gadoink says:

    ITS THE SWIMMING POOL OF MONEY!!!!

  39. shadowkid92 says:

    oh… i missed this one! I think that if he acctually did have a swimming pool then guess what? he wouldn’t need a vacume cleaner as a mic stand! NCG

  40. chriskatching says:

    Eww Squirtle’s Water Gun…. O_o lol

    “Well, at least I am…” HaHa 😛
