Chapter 1 - The Very Unofficial Earthbound Online Comic
The first sixteen strips I did are not part of 2050, but an entirely seperate webcomic called The Very Unofficial Earthbound Online Comic. I originally wanted to do it on a daily schedule, but I couldn't cut it and gave it up after only sixteen strips. Even so, I learned a lot about webcomics... and am rather proud of the Javascript browse page I had set up. Back then I had a free host that wouldn't allow Perl or PHP scripts =/ 1-Boredom 2-Long time waiting 3-I've had enough 4-Lazy bones 5-Back in town 6-Little shop 7-Spacing would be nice 8-Hypnotized 9-Nice to see you, too 10-Snap out of it 11-Catch(phrase) of the day 12-The plot thickens 13-Oh, shit 14-Move! 15-One step behind 16-Crappy recap
