90 Minute Comics



90 Minute Comics

Two randomly chosen words. Ninety minutes. One comic. Every Monday evening, a mixed and varying cast get together and draw comics based on two randomly chosen words. The results run the gamut of hilarious, strange, horrifying, and probably NSFW. A game based on Penny Arcade’s internet reality show about webcomic artists, Strip Search. Updated every Monday evening.

Dark Rising | A Baldur’s Gate Comic



Dark Rising

Dark Rising is a tribute to the 1998 computer RPG, Baldur’s Gate. The original game, its sequel, and their expansion packs occupied most of Nate’s free time for several years growing up. The comic portrays an iconic event early in the game. Though there are some deviations from the original source, its intended to be faithful to spirit of the game.

The Seed


The Seed is an experiment in digital formatting in comics. There are two ways to view The Seed.

Method 1: Html 5 interface. This method is recommended to those on a desktop or laptop. The coding for the interface was done by Christian Hahn. It takes about a minute to load on a super fast connection, about 2-3 minutes on Time Warner’s pretty average cable internet plan, and you should probably make yourself a sandwich or something if you are on dial up.

Method 2: A static image. This is recommended for people with an ipad or mobile device that can turn off the auto-rotation. Also its pretty fast to load. Web help provided by Melissa Cell

Everglades Comic


Everglades Comic

Upon graduation from college, Nate did what many recent grads did, move back into their parent’s basement. After about a year working a mind numbing office job, Nate decided it was time to get out and do something completely different. For six months he worked with the Everglades National Park as a vegetation intern, or as he likes to call it, a plant assassin. Wading through shin deep water, dodging venomous snakes, fire ants, and wasps, all the while trying to stem the spread of invasive plant species into the park. Invasive plants are species of plants that are not native to the area but have a natural proclivity for pushing out local species of plants and damaging the environment. Nate’s day to day job consisted of driving or hiking around the park and killing these invasive plants. This comic serves as a journal and parody of his time spent there.
