So…yeah, this one took a little longer than expected, but it turned out great. This one was written by yours truly and drawn out by shida214 over on fiverr.
Yes, this is truly how SSB gets down before a con.
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want a cheese fountain? And to make up for the lack of content this past month, here’s Jimmy’s debut comic!
*Disclaimer: I’m not that buff in real life. Sorry.
We all about that suite life.
First off, thanks to my friends, family, and all you cool geeks that made it out to SDCC 2013. You all deserve a round of applause.
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
I was wondering whether you’d be interested in selling advertising space on Ss-Burnout.com? The advertisement would be unobtrusive and we can pay you an annual upfront payment for the advertising space.
Uh-huh. Unobtrusive ads? Annual upfront payment? Riiiiight.
We can also provide guest blog posts from industry experts in many cases.
I’m allergic to buzzwords. There’s a few here already.
I am from Media Discovery, a new media agency headquartered in the UK. We plan out and acquire advertising space on major websites and portals, as well as smaller niche sites. I personally deal with our smaller publishers, increasing brand awareness and share of voice for the major brands that our group works with.
Crikey. More buzzwords. Major brands? Like who?
We’d love to work with your site. If you have any questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate to email me directly.
If you ask me, this whole thing sounds hokey and weird. Any of our readers have any experience with this dude, or this company?
Edit 4/4/13 – It seems that I’m not the only one that’s been contacted by this company. For those of you that found this page via google, I highly recommend looking at the comments below. They’ve posted some good stuff.
Edit 9/2/13 – Wow. You guys are still at it? Well, for those of you that are new to this saga, scroll through the comments. Now it’s a debate of keeping your blog’s integrity over selling out.
In this run of Strawberry Scented Burnout, Jay Bautizo is an ex-SEAL leading a group of Spec-OPS operators from around the world in a mission to protect the geek world from those that would fuck it up. Oh, and bad people. Because bad people suck.
Jay Bautizo – Jay is the leader of Team Strawberry, the international spec-OPS squad dedicated to protecting the geek universe and fucking up bad guys. He’s a hardcore otaku and an ex-Navy SEAL. When people give otaku a hard time, he’s usually the first to speak up against it. He can’t keep his powerlevel hidden, it’s over 9000.
Justin Amador – Justin is a suave ladies man, or he’d like to think so. An ex-Delta Force sniper, he spent some time with the FBI HRT doing hostage rescues and investigations. He knows how to get the job done. Justin likes to keep his geek powerlevel hidden, because he thinks it would “kill his image”. Whatever that means.
Sandra Kumagawa – Sandra is a half-British/Japanese agent from the British SIS. Her work ethic is impeccable, and she serves as Team Strawberry’s technology and intelligence officer. She hails from Manchester City, and is a huge soccer fan. She’s clear, concise, and to the point, but she’s still kind of shy around guys. However, get a couple pints in her, and another “chavvy” side comes out. Don’t speak ill of Manchester United when she’s within earshot.
Lee Mina (Western Reckoning: Mina Lee) – Mina was Jay’s taekwondo student. After going back to Korea, she joined the ROK Army’s 707th “White Tiger” spec ops squad. She also received a 4th degree black belt in Taekwondo, outranking her former instructor. Mina serves as the squad’s explosives expert and is very energetic, brash, impulsive, and loud. She’s got her eyes set on a certain guy, and she won’t stop until she’s got her claws dug into him.
Want to see how this will all turn out? Chapter 1 is being worked on as we speak! Stay tuned!
