Milestones

I’m gonna be 34 years old this Friday.  Yep.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  I’m not gonna lie to you guys, it’s been an absolute blast making the occasional comic and blog entry with you all.  And for that, I’m grateful.

Also, SSB’s been around for close to 9 years now.  I really need to nail down a definite start date for SSB…I’ll wait for my Timehop to let me know when I made that post with Jenny.

Anyway, I seriously can’t express how happy I am to be around such cool fuckin’ people every day of my life.  Just some things to look forward to over the next few weeks:

  • More Hood Tours.
  • More playthroughs
  • Destiny’s “Look Back” streaming
  • And more comics.  For sure.
  • Otakufighter posts again!

Soooo, to Jared, Ericka, Brian, Justin, Josh, Jairus, Jesse, Mario, you have no idea how much I appreciate you guys putting up with my random shenanigans and even more random schedule.  Thank you.  I appreciate all of you guys more than you can ever know.

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.

From the CEO’s desk

Greetings SSB fam, it’s me again, your lovable CEO, back with another round of updates.  We’ve been pretty busy as of late, and it shows.  We’ve got a smattering of videos and other stuff so without further ado…

For the first time ever, Justin sits down with myself and Brian and discusses his views on fandom, magic missiles, and all types of ill shit.

I eat a california burrito.  Justin eats carne asada fries.  Brian and Justin eat an El Grande Burrito.

On the real though, intestines don’t taste that bad.  I just wouldn’t go out of my way to eat ’em.  Sorry, Jihye.

Meet the cast of Strawberry Scented Burnout!

from left: Sandra Kumakawa, Jay Bautizo, Justin Cristiano, and Lee Mina.  Team Strawberry, yo.

from left: Sandra Kumakawa, Jay Bautizo, Justin Amador, and Lee Mina. Team Strawberry, yo.

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!
