Only two pages left for chapter one!
Only two pages left for chapter one!
I just left the original offices of Cody and David Studios for the last time. We only spent a short amount of time there – a little over a year – but I will miss its cozy confines. Now, before too long, I will have a new location to lose my sanity in and a new floor to pace a trail into. Gonna be finishing up the next Cody and David comic at my home, which is also empty, save for the boxes filled with all of my shit, and my two dogs.
Stressful and exciting all of this has been and continues to be, but thankfully it is nearing its end. It never fails that on a busy day for me I can always rely on Roscoe to interrupt my relaxation time with such things as texts that read, “comic #11, when we throwing it up? ETA? Thanks.” Does nothing more than pull me back into my stressing and reminds me, with a bitchslap force, that I am behind on Comic #11. It also reminds me that I am behind on GA Samurai, and we only have two – yes, two, I counted – Wednesdays left to wrap up the chapter.
But at least everything is packed.
Sorry, guys. This page was ready to go yesterday but there was a mishap in the scheduling of it. I blame everyone but myself. Page 11 is coming this weekend, and soon Chapter One will be at an end.
Catch up on the rest of chapter one here.
That’s an old animation test from the archives.
So we are nearing the end of Chapter One of The Legend of the Georgia Samurai. There are only four pages left of it, but only three Wednesdays left of this month, and next month is going to be a dark month due to the studio relocating, and all of this is making my head hurt.
In short, to solve this problem in the best way we know how, next week we will be releasing two, that is right, two, brand-spanking-new pages of Georgia Samurai. It is unheard of, really and I hope the site can handle the awesomeness that will be forced upon it due to this ungodly momentous occasion.
I mean this shit is gonna be up there with sliced bread. Sliced mother fucking bread. The best kind of bread. Sliced gluten-free bread, if you’re a celiac.
Our office is damn near empty. Spooky empty. All that really remains is my desk and a small, shell-filled lamp that we decided to leave upon the floor. It really brings the place together. I will be off to look at the new location this weekend, which excites me and makes me feel tingly in strange places. It also gives me the assurance that this relocation is almost fucking over with and I can stop stressing about it and just go back to stressing about everything else.
Gonna get back to working on the next Cody and David comic and eat some pizza and feel strange as I sit here alone and naked, drawing away.
New page is live!

The final grind before we move shop is upon us, and holy shit it is kind of daunting. We are taking no breathers in between comics this time around and my coffee intake is about to skyrocket. If all goes plan, and it most likely want, if I am being honest, the next Cody and David comic will go live on March 15th. leaving the last bit of the month to Georgia Samurai to carry the weight.
After that all that really will be getting posted is updates by our one and only, and slightly annoying, Roscoe Duggan. The rest of us will see you all in May.
Comic 11 is gonna be a bit different. Some of you may notice that the title takes from the book Walden, which was intentional. It is sort of a parody. I have wanted to do a comic featuring Welton – who debuted in Homewrecker – and at the time I was muling over the idea of the comic I was reading through Walden, something I have not done in about ten years or so. I started thinking about Welton in this situation, whom will tell you himself, he would fucking die if he tried to live in the woods, especially in the olden style. Roughing it and shit.
Then I just sat down and wrote the script. Very dialogue heavy and consisting of single-page illustrations – similar to the opening and ending of No Country For Young Men. I even picked up the phone and went over it with Welton himself, or at least whenever the bastard would pick up his phone.
I am happy with the script and hope the comic turns out solid, even though, as with all of the comics, I hate them by the time I am finished creating them. And then I like them again after my nerves calm.
Perhaps it will be another incident like Labels, which I actually really like, it’s bizarre randomness and all, but I will never do another comic like that. Which was just start drawing with no script whatsoever and let shit happen. Maybe I will end up really liking Comic 11 and do some more “story book” style entries on down the road.
Fun fact: Comic 11 will be the last Cody and David comic that will be created in our soon-to-be-old office.
Other news: We have mentioned The YouTuber in previous posts, and while scripts are written and filming was ready to begin, we are putting it on hiatus. Not sure for how long. It may release this year, or it may release next year. We shall see. Once filming starts, though, we will let you guys know.
I feel like I, Roscoe Duggan, have not gotten to do one of these updates in a minute. Davidlee has been stealing all of the glory. Anyway, here it is! Page 8 of the Legend of the Georgia Samurai! If you still need to do some catching up on it then just CLICK that all-caps click right there and start reading.
Hey. Hey there.
Sorry the next comic of Cody and David is taking a bit longer to push out. I am about to start the final edits on it and it should be up Saturday night or Sunday morning. Got a little behind what with the upcoming relocation process and house hunting. Always a fun process that I rank up there with getting pissed on. No offense to those of you who do enjoy getting pissed on. To each their own. It is just not my thing.
After this comic is launched we will have one more coming out before the move in April, that will be dropping in March. That also means we will have five more pages of the Georgia Samurai going live as well. After that, however, April will be a month of a whole lot of nothing happening here at Cody and David Studios. We apologize for that. Which I am sure is about the twentieth time we have done so.
We will be coming back in strong, however, in May. I will probably go batshit crazy during April, as it is incredibly weird these days when I am not doing work on Cody and David Studios shit.
I love you all.
