Space Lobster webcomic??

Hi! I used to be an active member on this forum back when I was in middle school and high school (I'm 34 now lol wow) and a member of the Penny Arcade artist forum which had some crossover with this community. At some point I linked up with a writer going by the name "Space Lobster," who had a VERY funny webcomic that was mostly recycled vintage sci-fi comic panels with new text he (I think he?) wrote. We collaborated on a webcomic called stupid aliens for awhile but I abandoned it as I did most creative pursuits at the time (ADHD). And now I'm wondering what ever happened to him??? I think his name was Eric???

Anyways sorry to butt in, I'm a book cover artist now and still have very fond Keen memories

I think this was before I was a member of the forum, unfortunately I don't recall this user.

But, if you're the Slasher I think you are, I wanted to say thanks for your Sporkia series! It was one of the first Keen fangames I played and helped inspire me to get into Keen fangames and modding.

Thanks Ceilick! I had a lot of fun making those even though I was 12 and had no idea what I was doing. Are your Keen games available anywhere?

I was 12 when I played them so I guess I was the target audience? :lol

You can check out my most recently released project on the forum here or my catalogue of mods on the Keen wiki here.

Welcome back, Slasher, even if only for a short time. :) Didn't notice this thread before.

I only joined the Keen community when you had already moved on. But through my work on the PCKF Archive, I learned about someone very creative at a young age.

It's been more than 20 years since the last Spork game. I'd love to see what a Commander Keen drawn by you looks like today. :yorp But it's understandable if you would rather spend your creative energy on something more profitable.

Regarding "Space Lobster", I didn't see that name in the (incomplete) ezboard archives, can't say whether he ever was a member of the PCKF. However, somewhere else I found something that might be helpful, if you haven't found him already. Sent it via e-mail.
