Math Major Man Post-It
Hey all!
You know, I uploaded DEAD DAYS strips super low-res back in the day. It was a different time then. Screen Resolutions were, like, 200x100 pixels and all we had to draw with were wax crayons. BROWN ONES. As such, I uploaded DEAD DAYS strips in shamefully low resolution by today's standards! Oh well, I guess that's just the way things are, dadgummit. Right? WRONG, MORON!!

If you didn't already know, I'm uploading classic Dead Days strips over on Instagram in glorious high-res! There's no better time to go view DD strips as they were intended, crystal clear and funny. While there's not much I can do about the whole "funny" business (I can't rewrite history), they at least LOOK great, so there's that.

Oh, and here's a post-it of Math Major Man I just drew to commemorate me posting old MMM strips throughout the month of June (the month of my birth; a dark month indeed). So go follow DEAD DAYS at instagram.com/deaddayscomics and be mildly amused!

BTW, I apologize for that "moron" comment from earlier. It doesn't matter how true it may or may not be, it was highly inappropriate and uncalled for. I'm sure you're all very bright and working on your 2nd PhDs and such, you nerds. Yes, I apologize for the "nerd" comment as well.

Love you guys!

Hey all!
Holy hell, long time no talk! 7-8 years to be exact! Okay, so yeah...
I think we can all agree that DEAD DAYS was a pretty fun strip and totally still sorta holds up all these years later. I stand by more than half my jokes (a good average), I never wrote or drew anything I'm embarrassed or appalled by in retrospect, and it's an all-around good time. Realizing this led me to start an Instagram account (@deaddayscomics) where I'm posting all the classic strips in no particular order (yet conveniently sorted by series and year using the wonder of hashtags) in order to create a new, easily browsable repository of my work. Which got me thinkin'...

Old strips are great, but how much better would it be to slip in something new every once and again? I've had all these potential funnies rattling around in my head for years, and this is the perfect platform in which to put them out into the world, like a chubby baby bird with a high likelihood of hitting the ground hard seconds after they take the plunge from the nest.

But has it been too long? YES. Does anyone care anymore? Nah. Am I gonna do it anyway? SHIT YES. So without further ado, here's the first official DEAD DAYS strip in 5 years, and the first strip featuring Brown, Blonde, Sandy & Simone in 7-8 years. As you can see, there were at least 4 very good reason for the hiatus. Dammit, Brown needs a shave and I'm 100% surprised Simone avoided getting a neck tat in the slammer. That's some class right there.

Yes, I'll continue uploading new strips here, as this is our original home and all our stuff is here, but be sure to check out and follow @deaddayscomics on Instagram for tons of classic strips I'm positive you forgot all about (I know I did), and, like this, the occasional new hotness!

Thanks for reading everyone. It was a blast to draw these goofballs again. More to come! Later!

*UPDATE: New strip posted!*

Yep! I've started work on continuing (and hopefully concluding) the Math Major Man series that's been on hold for, like, 2 years!

Proof: instagram.com/p/SzrjAdGK7x/

Not sure how much anyone cares anymore, but I CARE. I CARE DAMMIT!! And since I'm writing and drawing the silly thing and all you guys get to do is look at it, me caring is kinda the most important part, yeah? :) Stay tuned.

-Johnsey

I just randomly thought of Dead Days and am here, popping by your DA page. It's great to see you still posted something this year! haha. I miss Dead Days but I'm sure you're busy doing other awesome things. I'm not sure I ever thanked you enough for that strip, so just to let you know I fondly think of it! Whatever you do please keep drawin' dude! :love:

Well that was a nice note to log on to devArt and see! Thank you very much Rufi! Yes, I still cartoon, but work mainly as a graphic designer. Believe it or not, I have a number of Dead Days written and ready to go if the urge were to strike me once again... which is very well might. Thanks for thinking of my strip! Keep cartooning yourself!

I've been reading your strips since before I made this DA account, and I love Dead Days.

Can't wait for more!
