Well, here we are, the final installment of Roy’s Boys.
Three years ago when we started the strip I had no expectations as to what Roy’s Boys would become, and I certainly didn’t expect it to go on as long as it did. When Roy and I started the strip it was the first time that we had ever really collaborated on something together – other than fighting game club posters at SCAD. It was a new way for us to explore our friendship, and an opportunity to pretend that we’re as funny as we’d like to be.
There were some good strips, some bad ones and a whole lot of dick jokes, but through it all I’m amazed we were each able to churn out a comic every week. Sharing the strip made it so much easier to push through the dry spells. Sometimes neither of us would know what to draw, but I never wanted to be the one who missed the first update, so it kept me motivated.
Three years seemed like a nice place to call it quits. We decided to move on before we ran out of ideas, but that doesn’t mean either of us are through telling our own stories. We’ve had a great run and we want to thank each and everyone out there who took a moment to read our strip, tell a friend, share it, whatever. It’s great to know people are out there reading our stuff.
So, until early next year, when Roy’s Boys: Year Three is collected, I think this is adieu.
And so it ends. I’ll keep it brief, as Shane has already said all the good stuff. Thank you all from the very center of my chest cavity for following along on this ride. It has truly been a fantastic three years, and I am proud of the work we have accomplished, the lewd jokes we have told, and the fun we have put to panels.
Please, do keep up with us via our various social media! We’ll keep you appraised of when the paperback collection for Roy’s Boys: Year Three will be available, as well as inundate you with far less interesting minutia, and maybe the occasional announcement of a new project. Thanks again for joining us, and so long, dear readers!
