I was actually gone this weekend ...

  ... so this happened while I was away! But I hear John said it very deadpan, and then immediately returned to eating. These things happen. 

The Superbowl was this past Sunday! I was in an airport for most of it, and everyone there was glued to the TVs. You could hear people cheering and yelling every time something important happened. It was an interesting experience. 

Speaking of the Superbowl, this bit of news is circulating around -- eh, I'll quote the Gizmodo article:

"With under three minutes left and just after Larry Fitzgerald's heroic comeback(ish) touchdown for the Cardinals, the video feed abruptly switched to a scene from stablemate channel Club Jenna, treating viewers to the sight of seemingly omnipresent porn guy Evan Stone swinging his junk around like a maniac. This interlude lasted about 30 seconds." 

I don't know who the football player or the porn star are, but ... hahaha, it's tough not to laugh. Yuko's brother lives out in Tucson, so she's been trying to get ahold of him for personal confirmation. Good times. 

By the way, for those of you that came by and said hi during Ohayocon - thanks! It was a pleasure to meet alla you. I gave away the webcomics fundraiser postcards that Yuko did to anyone who came by the table and mentioned Johnny Wander ... I'll probably do the same thing at every convention. ;) It'll be a tradition!

It has been all over the local news here in southeastern Arizona. Apparently the Comcast cable feed which get it feed from a fiber line ran from Cox cable line who gets there feed from a direct fiber line feed from local NBC affiliate . Only Comcast customers saw about this 30 second feed of porn. And Comcast,Cox, or the NBC affiliate do not know what has happen. I think some hacked Comcast because they meter their Cable internet.

It would have been easier to say "Battle Royal", to me atleast.

That was awesome how you broke it off in between panels though, dramatic effect and all.

The only way to make it interesting

Comment by Decad (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 04:12

I personally think that the superbowl should be turned into a fight to the death between the two teams and their fans. The winning team would be the one with the most people left by the time the cops manage to break it up.


Comment by Naobear (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 04:29

I think John is my favorite.

on a side note, I like how he's a head taller than everyone else. :D

Ah, I know this one!

Comment by TheBakachan (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 05:21

A friend of mine did something similar once... Years ago, we're all sitting around watching Tombstone, and he-- totally deadpan --says "It's a good thing they made this before Val Kilmer died." We all just stopped and stared at him. After sitting there looking like he has no idea why we're staring at him, he goes "Well, he's not dead!" And we all facepalm. CLASSIC.

Lol! I think everyone's had a moment like that, one of my friend's said the funniest thing. we were watching some war movie in this history class (I think "Fullmetal Jacket"), there was this scene where one of the protagonist killed two dudes at the sametime and at that moment my friend basically just shouted "DOUBLE KILL"! at the top of his lungs.

Conrad will always be my favorite. XD

Conrad and Yuko are not very tall. John is. XD


Comment by Rachelle (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 22:30

He is that much taller than everyone else XD

I'm of the belief that any sport would be more interesting if you installed "Battlebot" style traps.

"Oooo that buzzsaw really got him this time."

Love this comic!

Comment by Jared (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 09:42

I just want to say that this comic is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Coincidently, are you guys going to be at Katsucon next weekend? I would love to stop by and say, "Hi."

We will be there - in fact,

Comment by Ananth Wed, 02/04/2009 - 04:43

We will be there - in fact, there is a strong possibility that it will be one of the few times all four of us are there. Yes, please, come say hi! :D 


Comment by Jared (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 10:51

I will try to be there if classes don't hold me up too much.

Funny I was watching that

Comment by Chris (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 10:12

Funny I was watching that game and I had no idea that happened(I lives in Tucson too, btw)! But i have Sat TV and not comcast, so that's probably why. >_>0 Funny as always keep up the great work!

Comment by Michael M. (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 12:45

All the time I've known John, he always seemed to be the nicest guy. Now it looks like he might wear Conrad's face to breakfast one morning.

Has the hard life on the streets of DC changed John?

Seriously John, you're so effing funny.

I've climbed seven of the worlds tallest peaks, built a time machine and spaceship, amassed two fifths of the world's total platinum supply and cured three different kinds of mammalian cancer, BUT I still do not understand how football games work.

Imagine how excited I was when I heard there was going to be an eXtreme Football League.

LYFE, it's spelled L-Y-F-E.

At least that's how it's spelled across my knuckles.

Comment by Michael M. (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 10:06

You know it's thug life when you spell "life" with a "y" and "thug" with three "g's."

The tattoo artist was like "i'm not sure how we're going to fit all those letters on your hands, sir."

That's when your fist, still wet from "lyfe" connected with his face. The ink is still smeared across his broken nose.

 Dude, I'm sorry ...

Comment by Ananth Wed, 02/04/2009 - 12:52

 Dude, I'm sorry ... knowledge of the Y comes with the hard-knock life lyfe. I can never begin to understand ...

Three Across - It's a hard knock ---- (use appropriate street spelling)

Five down - The last two are silent

Wait a sec...

Shouldn't it be Four across and Three down?

Comment by B.W. (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 17:10

I live in Tucson and watched the superbowl. I caught the porn replay in all of its terrible glory.

When it was over, I was laughing so hard I thought I might die. All I could think was "God, I hope somebody's kids just saw that."

I'm such a nerd!

Comment by aXcel (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 20:14

I missed something else like that?

I'm not into sports, but when i hear about things like that, I kick myself for not watching. It all started years ago with the whole "Janet Jackson-boob" thing (I was a preteen(i think) then, so I was just beginning to become a pervert XD)

Aww..... T^T

Comment by Sabu-kun (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 21:51

Aww... I didn't even know that you were at Ohayocon! If I did, I would've been at your table bunches! Were you in Artist Alley?

Oh, I loved the comic by the way! Keep em' coming please! ^_^

Aww, dang, sorry we missed

Comment by Ananth Wed, 02/04/2009 - 04:44

Aww, dang, sorry we missed you! 

So glad you enjoy it! We aim to please. :D

I live in tucson and it DID

Comment by Dangle (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 22:53

I live in tucson and it DID happen. apparently it was only on comcast cable because everyone down here who had cox it didnt happen too. it was hilarious...gross, but hilarious


Comment by Ryvius (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 23:07

I'll confirm that. Comcast cable is still trying to figure out what happened. There's a video at

Oh god why is this so

Comment by Alexds1 (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 23:12

Oh god why is this so hilarious XC


Comment by sailorvista (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 00:22

saw the video and what John Madden say at the end of it is funny" It the perfect guy in the perfect situation” but apparently a feed crossed over from one of Comcast pay-per-view channels on to the NBC feed is what they are saying now. I guess little jimmy want to learn about sex. I live south in Sierra Vista so we can only get Cox or satellite

 Hahaha, that's too good. XD

Comment by Reb (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 07:59

Wow, just... wow.

I think I'm falling in love with John, seriously. <3

It makes so much sense! At the end it should be a Roman Colosseum sort of set up, where John Madden gives a thumbs up or thumbs down for the loosing team. AND THEY FIGHT TIGERS. <3

Great, as usual guys. Big fan :)

The fact that John's last

Comment by HBK (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 08:19

The fact that John's last name is the same as my own worries me. I am not hardcore enough for this Kelly gang. There is probably some sort of battle royale for people like me.


Comment by John Kelly (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 09:32

If you don't cut the mustard so to speak I'll be forced (as part of my ancient Kelly vows) to change your name back to O'Ceallaigh and ship you off to County Cork to work in the docks. That's just how these things go.

If you're really not up to it, in Waterford we have a big crystal stadium (I tell no lie) that is coated in blood.

I love it when

Comment by Bryce (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 09:05

Anath's(Conrad's, Yuko's, John's....etc) story and the comments are as funny as the comic itself...I just can't stop laughing...XD


Comment by Ashiru (not verified) Wed, 02/04/2009 - 11:37

I met you at Ohayocon, but it took me until sunday to gather up the courage to say anything, lol. I really did want to tell you that I think Johnny Wander is awesome though. Well, I told you now I guess. lol.

 Ahaha, thank you! And no

Comment by Ananth Wed, 02/04/2009 - 12:55

 Ahaha, thank you! And no need to be shy, we're always happy to meet you guys. :D

John's idea would also make the World Series a lot more interesting also.

You mean..

The way John says this makes it sound as though they are not allowed to live, presently. ;D
