Believe it or not, the H stands for Humbert.

Zeroth Law of Life

This is just an intermezzo. Scrotum joke is not related to the story whatsoever.

Severely Euphemized

In case you didn't remember, in the last page Herbert sent a dog flying with a kick worthy of a Premier League Goalie.

The girl is Anya, the apartment manager who showed up in the 4th strip.

I believe I've done a profile on her as well, and mentioned that she has a dog, so congratulations to those who guessed that the dog belongs to her

Relatively Adorable

If it looks like a dog and it barks like a dog, then we have to at least consider the possibility that we have a small animal of the subspecies Canis lupus familiaris in front of us.

What A Man Wants

When you're stuck in a hospital, you think you could kill time fantasizing about nurses, but with the increasing number of men going into the nursing program, nurses don't make such a pleasant fetish anymore.

Atrocious Scenarios

What makes Battle Sam 37 better than Battle Franky 37 is that BS-37 has a pair of functional helicopter blade that comes out of his crotch so you can use him to fly from places to places.

Though you have to wonder how painful it would be to grow roses out of your anus, especially when you remember the fact that roses have thorns.

Morbid Moments

This comic was supposed to be out on Wednesday. Gonna try to find whatever time I've got to do another one this weekend.

Breaking News

It feels weird to draw again after three whole weeks of not drawing at all. Never thought I'd be so occupied with work when drawing was supposed to be my way of procrastinating.

Bleach Without A - part 3

Dodging and popping up behind your enemy gets old after 4 pages, I really can't imagine doing it for 10 years.

Don't believe me?

Thanks to Taboo for the beautiful compilation.

Bleach Without A - part 2

I don't know how this comic went from a simple 4-panel gag comic into an elaborate, time-consuming, multi-panel, uh... gag comic.

I must've taken the wrong turn at some point.

Bleach Without A - part 1

I intended to make a comic that will mock Bleach for its lack of background and overly used close-up panels, but it bothered me to no end to draw panels with no details on the background.

I mean, what's an establishing shot if there's nothing to establish?

Dangerous When Wet


And this marks the end of this (dragging) story arc.

If you don't know where the last panel came from, then you should be ashamed of yourself. My favorite panel, though, is that ugly Sam face on the top right corner.

Recklessly Reckless

I'm sure most shonen manga characters are aware of this rule, because otherwise none of them would be so reckless.

Except in the case of L. He was just unfortunate to have an author who was a complete douchebag with no regard for shonen rules.

Water Conservation

To be honest, the first that came to mind wasn't the danger of the whole room blowing up, but rather the delightfully useless fact that it is now a trivial matter to tell the twins apart.

"Oh, you're charred. You must be Steffen."

Here It Is, Finally

Please click on the image to enlarge to a more readable size.

This is my "bring back the side character that no one really cares about and give her more significance in the story" technique!!!

I'm trying out an experimental double page layout, which I think came out largely satisfying. Probably won't attempt another one like this anytime soon, though, as it took forever and a day to finish.

Also, if you're confused on the reading direction, read the left trapezoid all the way down before you read the right one.

Evil Mastermind

I had a joke about how Sam literally broke the panel frames in the third panel, but if I keep dragging the story on like that, I might as well change the title to Bleach.

And yes, raw sodium explodes when it touches water. Go look up some youtube videos if you've never seen one happen in your chemistry class.

Slope Is Rise Over Run

And of course, there will be an arc where we revive the characters that we kill off using devil fruits, ninjutsu, and bankai.

Can You Hear Me Now?

The only thing worse than realizing that the person you're trying to reach in an emergency do not have his or her cellphone with him is realizing that said cellphone is located near you and has Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" set as default ringtone.

Screentone Overload

Shit happens, and normally it happens to people who are already knee-deep in shit at the shittiest possible time. This is called Murphy's Law.

Murphy's Law is the basic underlying principle that governs the universe of WAITT.

and while I'm here, I feel the need to share this awesome WAITT fanart by

Go fav it or something.

Lorenz Attractor

The best way to energize a group of lab nerds is to throw in a labmate of the opposite gender.

This theory works best when the subjects are male and the catalyst is a female.

(yes yes, i know this story's been dragging forever. but now that AX is over and all my guests have been sent back to their respective countries, WAITT should be back to its normal schedule)

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Similarly Identical

The part that took the longest in drawing this comic is going back and forth between the previous pages and this to make sure I get the Steffen and Steffan consistent and correct.

Now even I can't tell them apart.

Sorry for the late comic. This week is filled with AX preparation work, and 2 job interviews in as many days.

Sufficiently Invisible

A true man always picks the most life-threatening option when backed into a corner.

Jumping out the window is totally for wusses. Death by chemicals is the way to go.

If you're not familiar with the fire diamond / NFPA 704 sign, the 4/4/4 basically means that whatever inside that room can ignite and/or explode at room temperature, and even short-term exposure can cause death. The OXY sign implies that the room contains oxidizing chemicals.

For more details on the sign, click here:

Backdoor Exit

Really, anyone working anywhere could really use a good hiding place from their supervisor.

WAITT is back on regular schedule until AX 2010 in the beginning of July.

Simply Moving

I'd use the name "PokeSegway" but then Dean Kamen might not like it.

Did you know that Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill, and Office Space, also made a segway-like thing when he was still a physics major at UCSD?

What's that? You didn't even know he was a physics major at UCSD?

Event Recapitulation

And with this, WAITT resumes is regular schedule. Expect another comic before Sunday.

Turning Water Into Wine

I think the more normal approach when offered suspicious, chemically altered substance is to ASK FIRST what the substance is.

Spitting Image Of

Steffen is the one with 113 shading lines on his shirt, and Steffan has 108 shading lines on his shirt.

Sometimes, even when you have no intention to eavesdrop, they talk so loudly that you can't help overhearing stuff you don't really want to overhear.

My favorite is the second row, far right.

Springbreak Hangover

Suddenly this feels like some sort of reality TV show in comic format.

This comic starts volume 2.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Forgetful Functors

and this wraps up the stupid grocery story. 14 pages and he still didn't get her name. what a failure.

this also marks the end of WAITT volume 1, and 50 comics since the restart in September.

I'm taking a week off to work on the book to make sure it can be done by Fanime, so there will be no comics next week. The week after, though, we'll start with a new story! Thanks for following!

Satisfaction First

There's really only a handful of things in life better than kicking a man when he's down.

Monday, March 22, 2010


First, a note: Serious buyer only, please! ONLY PRE-ORDER IF YOU'RE CERTAIN YOU'RE NOT GONNA BACK OUT. I have no way to force you to pay for the book you've pre-ordered, so I'm going to take your word for it, but I've had problems with people pre-ordering and then bailing out and not paying at the last minute. This happened a lot when I was printing Reborn VHL doujin, so I'm trying to avoid dealing with that this time. Thank you.

If you're interested in pre-ordering, please read on CAREFULLY. There's a lot of information below, so I'm not responsible if you misread any information.

It's simple: you pre-order the book during pre-order period, pay me the money within payment period, and when the books arrive from the printing company at the end of May, I will mail them out to you. Expect them to be mailed out to you in early to mid June. I will send a notification once your book gets mailed out, but once it's out, it's out of my hands. Shipping time will vary depending on where you live.

Because when you pre-order, you get EXTRA GOODIES, such as:

* Postcards
* A signed copy of volume 1
* A personalized sketch of any WAITT character in the book

and perhaps a few other things I can't think of at the top of my head at the moment.

Anytime between now and APRIL 3, 2010. That is in 2 weeks. Any order submitted after that will be taken in, but there is no guarantee that there will be any book in stock, which means you will have to wait until I order the second printing of the books.

Essentially, there are two items I'm selling:

** Item A:
1 (one) WAITT comic book volume 1
for $10

** Item B:
1 (one) WAITT comic book volume 1
1 (one) WAITT poster
for $20

Shipping is $5 within the US, $7 to Canada, and $10 everywhere else in the world.

I won't be selling the poster separately, at least not for now. Keep in mind also that if you're ordering the poster, your order might ship a bit later (by a week or two) because the posters are getting printed at a later date.

I prefer PAYPAL. As much as a bitch it is for them to charge fee per transaction to the seller, it is still the easiest method of payment. If you don't have a paypal account, make one. It's not difficult. You don't even have to give them your bank account or anything like that. All you need is an account on Paypal, and you'll be able to pay me with your credit card.

Payment using Money Order works too. Money order is a very easy method of payment for those of you living in the US. All you need to do is to go to ANY US Post Office, and tell them you want to buy a money order. Say you're paying me $15. Then you tell them you want $15 worth of money order. You will then pay the post office people $15, and they will give you a check/certificate that is worth $15. You will then mail this check/certificate to me.

I am also willing to take concealed cash in an envelope. However: if the cash does get lost in the mail, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE. I've received cash payments before and have never had any problems with missing cash, but you never know. It's safest to just use money order since you need to go to the post office anyway to mail out some cash.

AT CONVENTIONS! I will be attending FanimeCon 2010 in San Jose, CA, and Anime Expo 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. If you plan on attending any of these cons, feel free to preorder a copy and pick it up at the con. You can just pay me when you pick up the copy at the con. Picking up WAITT v1 at a convention will also save you shipping money!

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I'm self-publishing, so while I do have the fund to print a certain number of books, it'll be nice to get some money back to cover the printing cost. I'm setting a deadline of APRIL 22, 2010 (which is a month from now) for you to send me the payment. If payment is not received by this date, your pre-order will be canceled.

WAITT volume 1 will have 80 pages total. The content is black and white, but the front and back cover are full-color. The book will contain all the comics you've seen until today since the series was restarted in September 2009. The book will also include some extra illustrations / sketches that are exclusive to the book, character profile pages, as well as some of the questions you've asked in formspring.

To pre-order, you must follow these steps precisely. Failure to follow these steps may result in a lost pre-order form.

To preorder, you must send an email to with the subject "WAITT PREORDER". Please send the email using an email account you check often, as this email will be the main method of communication between you and me. DO NOT NOTE ME ON DA! I don't check my DA notes often, and sometimes forget to reply to unread messages, so shooting me an email to this address works better.

In the email, copy paste the following, and fill in all the information to ensure proper delivery:

(Item A / Item B)
(Paypal / money order / mailed cash / con pickup)
(Fanime / AX)

Once I get this pre-order email, I will reply to you with the total cost and info on how you can send the payment.

Apologies for the terrible frame design. If WAITT ever reaches volume 2, I'm just gonna go with a full-page illustration.

Filler Page Is Filler

It seems like whenever you considered something to be outrageous and bizarre, something else more outrageous and bizarre would instantly pop out just to prove you wrong.

And there doesn't seem to be any upper limit imposed to this. It's like a natural log function; you think it will plateau at some point, but it goes to infinity instead.

Happy belated Pi Day.

Quantity Mismatch

My perspective sense today is horrible. It must have something to do with the fact that I've been playing Rainbow Unicorn Attack too much.

Also I can't wait to wrap up this grocery-shopping story. It's getting boring, I'm ready to move on.
