So, this first comic is a little rough, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

I was sitting down to play a little SimCity, and after an hour or so of attempts that ended in bitter defeat, I decided to take out my frustration on some construction paper with some, uh, crayolas. The adult thing to do.

At any rate, having been in this business for some time, and having been subject to some of the pressures that the Maxis team no doubt felt during development, I thought I might as well use it as fodder for a comic. With dragons, or something. And I guess a computer made out of stone.

Anyway, it doesn’t have to make any sense.

Subsequent comics are going to change a lot, but this WAS a lot of fun.

So I guess what I’m saying is-

Thank you, SimCity, for being horribly broken at launch.
