Wow, crazy. Echoes of Wizzywig.

I like how Woz isn't smoking the weed. He wants to keep his intellectual LSD experience pure.

I think this comic is fabulous and I'll watch for more. I didn't know anything about Jobs and Woz until 1984 and found their mugs hidden within some fonts on my Mac but, Lordy, sometimes I miss the seventies. Those were my bookstore years and I had interesting clientele--didn't have to experiment with drugs myself, I heard many fantastic stories from the people who passed through my door.

I'm still holding out hope for new episodes of Apocamon.

Apocamon got killed by the DMCA takedown from the Pokemon people.

While this is very hilarious I am kind of wondering where Farley is planning to go with this considering that Woz is still alive.

I was going to quote something I once wrote on usenet, but it seems Google has managed to fuck up what was once Dejanews badly enough that that isn't possible nay more.

I like this, but the renderings remind me too much of the animated Drinky Crow and not in a good way.

You sure? The original episodes are still online. (IIRC they were gone for a while, but they've been back for years.)

This is great. I wonder if the comic will present the mean jerk side of Jobs too though... He's very well-behaved in this one,

Why hasn't this been uploaded to archive.org?

Steve Jobs calling Arthur C. Clarke a spiritual degenerate is hilarious.

asterix, it wasn't so much that they demanded Farley take down the strip, although I think he did for awhile and finally decided to ignore it, but they also demanded that cafepress take down all his Apocamon swag.

I was hooked by the fonts, but stayed for the writing. Great stuff!

Ah, so that's why I could never replace my Apocamon Mug. Stupid DMCA (and gravity) ruining everything.

Farley's sketch blog is also good.
