Happy New Comic Day, all! Sorry for the lack of content but between work, school, and now moving, comics have been pushed down on the priority list. However, new stuff is on the horizon and in the meantime I’ll be re-posting some classics from the Geek Theory archives. As always, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy one of my favorite reruns!
Life is full of firsts: first love, first kiss, first comic book, first ulcer. Everyone has a first and this week I want to celebrate the first “Geek Theory.” This comic started out as “Typicality”, a comic strip that I started writing in high school. It was similar in concept, following the exploits of a group of socially awkward misfits navigating through life, obsessing over movies, video games, and speaking in pop-culture colloquialisms. After a few years I grew disenchanted with it and the strip was discarded, though the characters kept popping up in various plays and short stories I went on to write in college. Eventually I decided it was time to start drawing again and so I brought those characters back and created the comic you see before you. It’s been going for just over three years now and though it’s been on a lengthy hiatus, the characters are coming back, stronger and (hopefully) funnier than ever. A new strip is on the horizon but for now, here’s the very first “Geek Theory” strip ever written. If you’ve never seen it before, i hope you enjoy it and if you have seen it…well, then you know the art gets much better! – Cam
