Author Comments

Many people said in their reviews that the author of the original comic was Legorobot, so I listened to them and changed both the credits and the author comment to give him credit. However, I recently got a mail from Legorobot himself where he told me that he's not the author of the original comic, but that it's someone else with a really similar style.

Since he doesn't want to take credit for someone else's work, I've changed the credits and author comment back again.

EDIT: Holy poop I log on and see this on the frontpage?! Thanks!

Edit: Awesome, my first award! Thanks for the high ratings everyone!

This is an animated version of the original webcomic, it's a tribute to the original author and to the band Mastodon who made the song. (Go buy their albums because they're awesome!)

The original webcomic was created by an anonymous author whom I'm not able to credit since there's no name written in the comic. I do not take credit for anything else than the animation. This flash is a hobby project made for fun, and I'm not making any profit whatsoever from it.

This project took a lot longer to finish than I expected, a lot of problems appeared when I worked on it. First of all the original voice actor didn't reply to my emails or send me his lines as I needed them, I had a lot to do in school, and the sound didn't sync properly when I exported what I had done so far. I gave up and forgot about the whole thing for a couple of months. However, I decided to take it like a man and finish the whole thing up. I got a new voice actor, Druoxtheshredder (He's awesome!), and I were able to fix the sync issues thanks to Knugen.

Well, I hope you enjoy it!

Great

I really enjoyed the moby dick scene. The metal music set a great tone and it had a "300" feel in style. Now the parts not so well animated were amusing, but ultimately took away from the piece as a hole. I would have really loved to see the whole Moby Dick heavy metal sequence expanded upon into a short music video. Just the metal guy coming out in me. Been listening to a good amount of it lately.
