We here at FBTB have been working on a brand new feature for the past few weeks. It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of our brand-spanking new webcomic, Well Played. With Mike at the helm as the resident artist, and the rest of us monkeys as back up dancers, we'll be publishing a weekly strip on the going-ons around the LEGO Star Wars universe and even the AFOL community. Our first strip is scheduled for this Sunday June 15, 2008 and will be published on a weekly basis. We sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have fun making it. Grab the link and tell your friends and neighbors!



The previous poll was a bit of a teaser to see who you'd like to see in comic form. Well, we couldn't let one person have all the glory, so we made it with all of us. And although Nick had the lowest number of votes, his character was all of our favorites. Oh yeah, and I totally called out Mike as the big weiner. The complete numbers below:

Which staff member do you think would make a great comic strip character?

  • Ace - 121
  • Don - 151
  • Mike - 158
  • Nick - 34
  • Ryan - 47

I edited the main page post, but forgot he had posted the same thing here. Fixed.

No time travel (well, none planned yet...)

Who knows? But if you ask, not only will you never be featured, but maybe kicked in the bum too. Twisted Evil

That's great! Very Happy

Is storyline already written and ready to go? I notice that most webcomics' flaws are lack of storyline. (Unless it is the the style of comic to have no storyline...)

There's no set story line or anything, for now at least, just some topical week to week humor. But a plot isn't out of the question.

I have to, I'm a bit surprised by the title. Given the rampant egotism seen by you guys, I figured you'd come up with something along the lines of "Five Studs on a Brick", "The Five Studded Brick", or "The Studdly Gang". Heck, you could even have TPJ make a cameo as "Studdly Do-Right of the Canadian Mounties." (Kudos to those who get that reference.)

I actually pitched Studless - but only after we'd settled on this.

This one works on a few levels, I'm curious if anyone has made the connection. Wink

VERY EXCITING! Razz

Could someone please name the characters? I guess the one on the right is Mike and the one in the center is Ace, but I'm not sure for the rest of the gang.

It goes: Don, Nick, Ace, Ryan, Mike.

And yes, I'm rather looking forward to this. The way I see it, all you need to do is let your personalities bounce of each other, and hilarity should ensue reasonably rapidly... Laughing

I definitely made the connection of the title to the meaning of "leg godt," but I thought it was strange since I didn't think the phrase "well played" was a common one on FBTB or with the 5 of you guys. Is it going to be a catchphrase or even a theme in the comic, besides just being the title?

I think Don says "well played" a lot, I don't know. But I am also anticipating this comic series! The thing that really had me ROTFL on the poster was the crushed soda (or beer) can on dW's head! Laughing I can't wait for... Later today! Razz

CammanderJake got the names exactly right. And, for people who remember better when they see names and faces together, I made this:
