Hasn't it been like three hundred and seventy five internet years since I last poked my head in here? It's really nice to see familiar names again. And familiar icons. And stuff. Glad to see people still care, although I can't foresee EOI coming back from the grave for a... what, fourth or fifth time? I've lost track. I'm honestly shocked that three years on people were still poking here looking for life.

I have to admit it, it just feels too good to -not- do the comic. I don't love it as much as other artists who can stick to a project for the long haul. I hate drawing. I don't LOATHE it, but it doesn't hold my attention. It's not my passion. My passions are banging hot chicks* and playing video games, and no one wants to see me do either of those on the internet.

That said, now that I'm at a place in my life where I feel comfortable swinging a pencil around again there are still a bajillion stories I'd like to tell. They just don't involve that old sendup of online communities that EOI was before I ran out of jokes to tell. There's still some stories there, I had scripts for love triangles and grand adventures but all that nonsense is played. I think if I draw again I will be going in a different direction, which is one of the reasons I dragged my LJ out of the dust so I have a place to slap anything I might scan in the coming days.

Anyways, thanks for being around, guys.

"just the one oh god she is going to kill me"

Well, dude, there IS the wonder of LJ Manage/Edit Entries option! Just re-write it to say "My Passions are banging my hot chick love you honey" or something like that. Easy save! :D


Glad to see you kicking up the dust again, and it will be just awesome to see some of your work again, even if it's not much in the EOI department, as I think you do some tremendous work one way or another.
(and for "work" I can't vouch for your "work" in the bedroom, so I'll just take your word for it....)

Well we haven't been pressing f5 hopefully for 3 years, you just turn up on people's friends pages whenever you start posting again :)

I never was as into the MMORPG version of EOI as the chatroom one with the static character avatars, strangely enough. Plenty of successful webcomics with no new drawing like dinosaur comics do just fine, though the chatroom thing might be a little dated, I dunno. Maybe you could do EOI with twitters :)

Drawn comics though, if you knocked a couple pages more of that story about the Troll they'd be welcome.

Ha ha, yeah Twitter's always good for a few laughs but I can't shake the feeling that a Twitter webcomic would end with some sort of grim suicide pact.

Mr. Sortelli, thank you kind sir for sharing your imagination with us for all those years. And Paltus, the editing wouldn't work, they always find out somehow and then you get in even more trouble for trying to hide it.

Well, fortunately, EOI isn't the sort of story that really requires an ending, and so at least if you never do another strip, there's no great tragedy at it being an unresolved plotline or anything. Not that I wouldn't like to see more, naturally, but if your heart isn't in it, I can barely see the point.

But I would be quite interested in seeing what you come up with next, and will certainly stick around.

Just wanted to say, I hadn't checked EOI in a long time, and on a random whim, checked it and your blog today. Go fig. There must have been a ripple in the undermind. You're popular.

Before the rude and the ungrateful chime in, may I simply pass on the desires of a longtime fan? An ending. Just let us know where they went from there. NONE of the characters were happy, and most of them deserved to be. Yeah.. they aren't real people, but they made me, and many others, happy for a while. Could you do your fans a favor and lay them to ease, if not rest?

Well... April and Percey never get together. Duke and Megan do, but only after a lot of nonsense and Gothgrrl getting in the middle. Duke and his dad come to an understanding. Woot and Barbi have nasty sex. That's about as far as things got in my head.

Wait never mind that part about Woot and Barbi.

Not a face you'd recognize but a long-time fan of EoI. Hopeful that there are more of Sortelli's Stories on the way.

Damn, this is relatively recent. It's like I felt EOI stirred in its sleep, but I guess this little entry means I'll finally remove the comic from my bookmarks. Like many others, I hoped you would eventually continue the story just ffs, boredom, nostalgia, etc. It's not meant to be I suppose.

Hey, if you draw more stuff, link it somewhere in your old comic.

Oh, man. It is awesome that you are updating again. I'm glad you are doing well. I hope you get the opportunity to tell some more stories. I find you to be both a humorous and interesting guy (I actually came back to your LJ to show someone your Marvel 1602 review, which I still love).

Good luck, and thank you for making me laugh for many years!
