A Geeks Life

The Geeks

First appearance: 01/31/2005
Jim is the main character and creator of this comic. He's a major Geek but in many ways he's proud of that fact. He enjoys camping, Hiking, writing poetry and short stories, Painting, roleplaying, Magic the Gathering, reading and gaming. Some people would say Jim has an addiction to popcorn, and they'd proabably be right. Jim however claims he can quit anytime he wants to... he just doesn't want to. When not reading or working on some artistic endevor Jim can often be found watching anime or giving psycological advice and support to one of his friends. So Jim in a nutshell... a Sci-fi, fantasy, Role playing, computer Geek who loves popcorn and movies about crossdressing Sex freaks. Wow reading that back he sounds like a freak, but people say he's a really nice guy who's just alittle eccentric. In real life Jim lives in Connecticut still with his mother because he can't afford school and an appartment at the same time (so sad so sad he's all poor and stuff).

Jen is Jim's girlfriend as well as one of his best friends. In real life she lives in california quite far away from Jim and they see eachother only when one of them can afford to fly from coast to coast. The rest fo the time they keep in contact by phone and the wonders of the internet (which is also where they met). Jen is your typical hard working college student geek girl. She loves games although she's alittle inexperienced with them. She also loves cats and her "babies" (several stuffed animals that are special to her and Jim). Jen is a sweet girl and a loving girlfriend, she's a fun, beautiful, sexy and smart geeky girl what more could a guy want?

Brian is Jim's Best friend. Jim's Known Brian since forever... well since their first year of Boyscouts anyways. They became fast friends and since then have become like brothers. Brian loves the outdoors and is an avid camper and hiker (maybe even more so than Jim). He loves anime, role playing, Sci-fi and fantasy. In real life Jim and Brian dont' get to see eachother as often as they used to. Brian went out of state to college and is currently on a study abroad program out of the country. But they stay in touch and whenever it is possible they get together for fun, excitement and true to their geek heritage usualy alittle magic or D&D. When Brian manages to find some free time he often builds gundam models or hey sleeps always good right?

Dave is Jim's other best friend. Jim met Dave way back in 6th grade. They also became fairly fast friends and soon they had formed their own comic "company" Tarty toons inc. Dave's character was Bink (a Parody of Link). Their comics were always very um... "interesting" to say the least. Dave also is famous in our D&D group as being the guy who is alway dying or always geting everyone killed. The "cursed headress" incident and the time he stood up proclaiming "ARE YOU LOOKING FOR US!" speak for themselves as to why dave has this reputation. Dave and Jim have a running inside joke about "The Monkey Man" which may or may not be explained when it comes up in the comic. I guess You'll just have to watch the rant section to find out.

Sholo is a talking potato baby. He is Jim and Jen's baby whom Jim gave to her randomly one day. Developmentaly Sholo is proabably an infant although he can talk sometimes (but who says potato babies develop the way human ones do?). He has a little green blankey named olive that we made for him and also a little stuffed cat named oliver. (what happened is one day Jen and I were talking online. I randomly said something along the lines of "Gives you a potato." and then I said "I shall name him Sholo." and from that moment on he was our baby and we actualy several months later made a small cute potato stuffed animal using a sewing machine and some cloth Jen bought for that pupose. Since then we've taken care of him along with out other stuffed animal babies.)
