    Now is the time to nominate Endtown for an 2014 Eisner award, in the category of Best Digital Comic.
    To quote:

    “The best digital comic category is open to any new, professionally produced long-form original comics work posted online in 2013. Webcomics must have a unique domain name or be part of a larger comics community to be considered. The work must be online-exclusive for a significant period prior to being collected in print form. The URL and any necessary access information should be emailed to Eisner Awards administrator Jackie Estrada: jackie@comic-con.org.”

    Now, the Eisner winners are determined by a small, select panel of judges who are respected in the field. The decision is made on the work’s quality, which means essentially that the winner will be the best comic, not just the one with the widest circulation. Myself, I truly believe Endtown is of such quality in art, writing, concept and body of work that it could rank as one of the best web comics, if not the best. I truly believe Aaron Neathery’s Endtown can win an Eisner.

    Please note that Best Digital Comic applies to long-form stories and not just individual daily strips. I do not intend Doc Rat to be nominated, even though it does contain a certain number of long-form stories in amongst the individual strips. Endtown has a greater chance of winning, and I do not want to distract the vote.

    Nominations are open now, and they close on March 17th. Now is the time for as many fans as possible to e-mail Jackie Estrada (jackie@comic-con.org) and explain why Endtown should be considered worthy of being on the short list for this award. 2014 is the year for Endtown to break very, very big.

    By his personality: Aaron Marx, by any chance?

    Those who have had to deal death tend to be the least likely to want to do it.
    .
    Kalaznikov made the news when he died late last year. He had a bravado front about not feeling guilty, but apparently wrote his pastor, desperate for forgiveness for the lives that his 1947 invention have taken over the years in service to evil. It would be hard and perhaps impossible to find a historic use for the ‘47 that wasn’t by some group that wanted to take over or terrorize people, rather than to save people, establish rights, or representative government. The standard use was to enslave or wipe a group out.
    .
    A heavy burden, even though he had no control over how it was used.
    .
    Most humans don’t want to kill other humans, period. Humans have an inbuilt proscription against murder. Those few who don’t are called criminals, Socialists, or abortion doctors. Most who kill have guilt to one degree or another, even when it’s the shooting of a criminal to stop them from beating an innocent to death.
    .
    That guilt about killing people manifests in some weird ways. Some self-destruct. Some serve others with vim and vigor. Others adopt religions that allow them to kill .One wonders how many killers went Socialist to assuage their consciences— being able to rationalize bestial deeds for the “greater good”.

    Did he ever admit that the AK-47 was a direct copy of the German Sturmgewehr?
    It is interesting that he felt guilty for it, especially since it became almost the default weapon for terrorists.

    Wally: “If you’re asking ‘Can I pull the trigger?’ Yes, the answer is ‘Yes’. If what you’re trying to get at is ‘Will I please pull the trigger on you and your friend right now?’, I’d have to beg your patience until you provide me with some information. Like, first, ‘What is the name of your next of kin?’”

    Marxish, but doesn’t seem to be Marx for some reason

    I Still think it could be the Duke and Duchess Marx and Flask displaced from a nearby reality. I mean, they did take some other peoples places over at a nearby reality, no? Marx may be everywhere, he’s everywhere, but Flask had to displace the Duchess.

    I can see the essence of Marx in this Topsider, but I don’t think it’s him. He was just helping Jackrabbit. I don’t see (at this moment) why he’d have the motivation to mess with Wally and Holly, and I doubt Sarah is Flask. He just might be an eccentric guy.

    Kalashnikov submitted the bid for the AK to be the weapon of Soviet Union prior to 1947. The Soviet War Department equivalent agreed on that design in 1947, but the weapon did not actually go into production until 1948.


    Kalashnikov is a little late asking absolution for submitting the design. No Bruno, he never gave anyone credit and insists he perfected the design recovering from war injuries.


    The brilliance of the AK, or Kalashnikov to distinguish the cheaper copies, was its simplicity and reliability.


    Kalashnikov was very proud of his gun, which resulted in him being a big national hero, and actively and joyously participating in the 50th anniversary of the contract in 1997, and lapping up all the praise, honors and recognition mfor “Jus design”


    Because it was so cheap and nearly foolproof, it is probably the world’s most counterfeited weapon.


    No, asking absolution at this late time, is not representative of Kalaschnikof’s life seems to me to be one last grasp for glory.


    YMMV.

    Not smart to tease a cat at any time…but when his girlfriend has just passed out your playing with dynamite.

    Flask perhaps?

    I’m thinking it’s time for some introductions here. “I’m Wally Wallechinsky, and this is the love of my life, Holly Hollister…and you are?”
