It’s been 5 fuckin’ years since I started SSB. What once was my outlet for all the negative energy that surrounded me has become a part of my life. And a part of a few other people as well. I wonder why it’s lasted this long, despite a comic not ever really launching. I guess people really believe in it enough that it’ll come true.
And it’s precisely those people that I wanna give shoutouts to.
Justin – As the group’s COO, you’ve done a ton of work behind the scenes to keep the group motivated and afloat. Plus you do a good job of keeping me in check. I can’t thank you enough for that. Yes, 2014 will be the year of the huge explosion.
Ericka – Without your efforts, our transition to our .org digs wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did. Your technological know-how has been a cornerstone of our rebirth, and you’re awesome. Thanks a billion.
Jared – Bro, you’ve supported me time and time again with the comic. Getting the comic con pass renewed was just the beginning. Thanks.
Alissa – Honestly, I wasn’t sure where I was gonna stick you when you expressed interest in working with SSB. At least your heart’s in the right place, and I’m glad to have you on the team.
Gina – Your art is awesome, and your work ethic is impeccable. I can’t wait to see our comic when it’s all done.
I’ve gone through so many hardships dealing with SSB. Artists flaking on me, people trying to use SSB as a way to pick up girls (believe me, that’s a headscratcher), people trying to get us to change the core of SSB, who we are.
In 5 years, that hasn’t changed. We’re still.. “all about that geek life”. And we’ll continue to be.
