A Word From One of the Creators
From the desk of Eric Ratcliffe
So, fun story: my phone is actually named Excalibur. (continuity experts who are longtime fans of the strip would know that from Jim’s very first strip when I call Chuck for help) So I figured during this whole fantasy arc I needed to sneak in as many fantasy references that I could, so it made sense for everyone to be looking for their phones and for mine to have actually been replaced by the most famous sword in history.
That and I own a version of Excalibur. It’s a cheap replica but it’s awesome.
Since I’ve been doing a lot of YouTube videos now and slowly getting used to talking to the actual camera I figured I’d throw this idea out there: Would our readers be interested in an interactive “Ask Eric” series? I’d be able to drag Jim and Brant in occasionally and it would be answering your questions in our NCD personas. Let me know.
We finally reveal what brought the guys into this universe and just what it means for our heroes around strip #201, which I’m very excited for people to see. I know I haven’t teased it too much but I’m very excited for you guys to see strip #200. The pacing on it is a personal favorite and I really wanted to be as big and fun as possible.
Wednesday…we’re getting closer and closer to #200, so what happens when Brant tries to take the lead? Find out in just a few days!
