    Hey folks,

    Wanna know where I’ve been the last week? Read the latest Fake Monday Update™ on the Fakerockstar blog:

    I guess Delores doesn’t know that masks don’t do much to protect you from influenza (unless it’s the sick person wearing it).

    Well said, Corey. I can’t believe the mean-spirited nature of all those people who are upset just because you SAID you were going to come through with MWF comics because you wanted to give them something, and then immediately took the week off to drink beer with your buds without further comment.

    You really, truly, don’t get what the issue is after all this, do you? Here’s a hint…it’s NOT that you needed to take some time off. That part’s OK.

    Hey Corey - stop asking us to preorder your books when we can’t even get a regular schedule on the comics. Preorder now - get it in 2050! No thanks. I have my copy of your first book and some of the strips (although the ones I ordered about a week ago are still out there somewhere, even though PayPal has my money).

    Sorry to be mean - just frustrated that my favorite strip is going away and I feel like I’m being cheated out of the last bunch of strips. Does this mean the storyline will be ‘reduced’ to make up for the lack of strips? I’m guessing this won’t be a Newhart ending.

    Cory, whatever your future is, may it be a happy one. Good luck in all your endevours. One must always enjot what one does.

    And kindly ignore the griping from ingrates who don’t understand that free ice cream is free ice cream, even if it doesn’t arrive exactly when promised.

    Jeez, you people.

    Purchasing a book/item from me does not entitle the buyer to anything more than that item. Regular updates of the comic has nothing to do with your buying power. I owe you nothing more than what you paid for.

    Furthermore, no one, to my knowledge, held a gun to your head and made you pull out your wallet to purchase something from me.

    If you have not received your order, or would like a refund because you are tired of waiting, I have mentioned several times on my blog that you need only email me at and I will find your order and/or happily issue a refund.

    FURTHER furthermore, no one is forcing any of you to read my comics. If it’s such a pain to have to revisit a website for sporadic updates, why do you do it? Is it so you have something to complain about? When I hate doing something, I stop. But that’s just me.

    Read or don’t read, frustrate, fume, cry, whatever. It will not change the way I go about my workday.

    I told myself I wouldn’t engage in this idiotic debate any longer, but I feel like these comments are starting to hit below the belt and needed to be addressed. I find it hard to believe that any of you with and an axe to grind over my comics would have the brass pearls to say these things to my face. The anonymity of the Internet seems to sometimes breed cowardly and cruel people.

    FURTHER FURTHER furthermore, it’s just a silly comic strip. Get over yourselves already.

    “Hugs”!! That’s priceless.

    Perhaps people tune in to be part of the ridicularity(tm). ‘Barkeater Lake, the world’s first interactive, 5th dimensional comicstrip.’

    Hey Corey, maybe you can archive this melee and feature it in an extended volume of BL. Think of it as the bonus footage of a DVD. People love that crap.

    I’ve stayed out of this, but like everyone else, I’ve been checking the website for new panels and have been frustrated when they weren’t there. But y’all, we aren’t three year olds - frustration isn’t going to damage us or cause irreparable harm. I can’t believe the mean-spirited slams against him, full of some weird sense of entitlement.

    Really, take the cork out, lose some of the hot air and ego and find a way to enjoy the last little bit of the Barkeater Lake ride!

    Thank you, Corey, for all the entertainment you bring us and I look forward to any and all of it, whenever you choose to post it. Good for you standing up for yourself; now just forget those sad people; they wouldn’t be happy if you sent them $100. Most of us who enjoy your talent never post comments (this is my first and last). Good luck to you and your family! :)

    Ignore the jerks - do what you have to/what you need to/what you want to.

    (If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to do at least two of those at the same time.)

    Actually, I would be happy to get $100. Hey Corey, Where’s my $100?

    Corey, hitting below the belt is what Trolls do best. Don’t feed them - their IQ’s fall below the threshold of cretinism. Bless you in your endeavors.

    My gawd some of you! What, you think Corey owes you his life or something? Yes I wish Barkeater Lake would go on forever, but it’s not my call, and it sure ain’t yours! But then some people b i t c h just to hear themselves talk because they think other people want to hear them too. Stop reading, go away, let the rest of us enjoy what’s left!

    Good luck Corey! Hey, don’t forget my books! :-D

    A man owes the world nothing except that which he promises to it. No more, no less, but in a man’s promise lies his honor and others’ faith.

    If you’re ever in the neighborhood, look me up; I’d enjoy meeting the guy who created a world of characters who feel like neighbors and whom nobody wants to say goodbye to. You bring the beer, I’ll bring the brass pearls.
