Chris Livingston Stops Considering A TF2 Comic

frohrious

Our fiendish plan to get our hopes up so much that he couldn’t bear to let us down has failed. Chris, author of the enormous and excellent Half-Life 2 comic Concerned, has decided against doing one in TF2 for various annoyingly valid reasons. He doesn’t mention this one, but Jesus Christ have you ever tried posing something exactly the way you want it in Garry’s Mod? It’s like balancing a kitchen knife on an oiled marble.

I find that I am not disappointed at all. I’ve no doubt it would have been great, but a twice-weekly giggle doesn’t seem like such a big deal compared to the fantastic source of entertainment 1Blog has become. Without this procrastinating placeholder for the vapourware TF2 comic, Living In Oblivion, one of my favourite pieces of games writing in years, might have stayed a still-born non-blog.

1Fort has also provided me with news of the man who is only invisible while performing a forward roll, the real Team Fortress 2 stats system, the best screenshot ever, and an actual Team Fortress 2 comic: Red Spy.

Plus, I’ve always kind of wanted a place where “Tom Francis Ruins Team Fortress 2” is a real headline. Somewhere other than the Tom Francis Sucks newsletter, anyway.

Here’s to a long future of non-adventure, experimental side-projects and TF2 commentary.

  1. Oh, i sense a dead Nondrick in the near future…
    Chris have already said that: “Now I can end the blog”.

    WE ARE ALL DOOMED :(

  2. Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn, DAMN!!

  3. OH THIS IS SAD DAY!

    Er, anyway – you can’t fault him for not taking it on if he didn’t feel up to it. I’m disappointed, but the 1fort blog and LiO are still pretty entertaining in their own right.

  4. Thanks. This is a really nice post, and it made me, at least, feel better about the whole thing.

  5. Sad Panda.

    Oh well, maybe he can use that creativity juice to not do a video game comic.

  6. 1Fort was Chris Livingston’s games/humor blog after he finished Concerned, probably the most famous Garry’s Mod comic (and there were A LOT of Garry’s Mod comics way back when). I imagine 1Fort itself is gone for good, but you can still read Concerned: the link’s in my username.
