For those of you not in the know, Hadron Colliderscope is a new Web Comics Collective dedicated to bringing you short science fiction comics on a weekly basis. Every week the writers and artists will have their say in the main blog. We are kicking off with a collaboration between the creator of the project and the series editor.
BRAND NEW COMIC!
Welcome to Hadron Colliderscope.
Oh this comic may not seem like much. It's only two pages and that first Kirby Crackle just isn't doing it for me in retrospect. How young and idealistic I was when I first penciled this page all those many... weeks ago.
Still. It's held up by Jason's comedic scripting and my ability to draw someone looking like a complete and utter douchebag (get used to it, it's all I've got), so I am proud of Final Battle. Also, it's free, so why the hell are you complaining anyway, you damned ingrate? I've been busting my arse since January to make this comic website a reality and...
Look, none of that matters. What matters is that if you are reading these words, then I bloody well love you. We didn't make this for money, we didn't make this for fame, we made the side and all the comics for one thing and that's for you, the reader. We did this because we wanted to make something for the sake of making something and give it to you so that you can read it.
It's yours now. Please click on that banner up there, laugh, cry, and go bananas.

So begins either the high soaring flight of the internet's most awesome-est webcomic ever (certainly the best one I've ever been involved in) or the spectacular crash and burn, leaving burning piles of rubble and bodies in our wake. If it's the latter, I hope it's just ugly and unpleasant people.
The subway was still a somewhat novel experience for me when I wrote this. People go so far out of their way to avoid any sort of human contact but we're all there, stuck, together. How much could you ignore if it really came down to it? I wonder...
