So Keith and I were talking over the weekend, and he's decided to step down as co-writer so that he can focus on his college course (and so we don't spend the whole time talking about Neko when we're hanging out). He'll make his own announcement shortly :)

That sucks. Hilarious comic though. :D

I agree this was absolutely priceless. I was hoping the fantasy would at least follow through the bitter end.

Awww we will miss you Keith! hope you still post your movie and game reviews! ^_^

DO I see Batman?

@Rae: Yup, that's Batman alright. . .and you may recognise the green hair. . . ;-)

Well...it's the same guy in a somewhat Batman-esque costume that was shown in strip #861. It's also entirely possible that's the top of a plant :P

Do they sell batman plant toppers now!?
If so, where!?

@Gar Will you get another co-writer?

Reply NtKPaige, October 17th, 2011, 9:54 am

Batman-esque :P

I like to think that it really IS Batman. . .and the Joker is finally getting what's coming to him!

But in the interests of avoiding copy-right infringement, I concur that it is Batman-esque and not really Batman. No matter how much I want it to be. Nya!

Oh the Joker is getting something "coming" to him I'm sure. Sad to hear Keith will no longer be a part of the comic, though.

Reply RaeofSunshine, October 18th, 2011, 1:44 am

Well considering what batman was doing last time we saw him it is very possible....

@RoboKitty: Paige has stepped up from editor to co-writer (hence the change in the by-line at the bottom of the comic). Off to a promising start so far, I think :)

gar its so sad that you will not have a co writer any more please find a new one and may our old one still make posts

Reply NtKGar, October 18th, 2011, 9:32 am

@tails83: Paige is the new co-writer. I'm looking forward to working with her :) She's more a prose writer, so there's going to be a bit of a learning curve where we figure out how to make comics together, but I work better with a partner and think she's going to bring a lot to NtK.

Keith's got a very heavy workload in college, but he'll pop up from time to time with his own inexplicably charming brand of audience antagonisation, and the occasional film or video game review. There's also a 'special guest' slot left open for him on the writing team, he just can't fit his schedule around regular script & revision meetings any more.

i dont know exactly when kieth started co writing this, but i HAVE noticed that as time passes, the comics have been released more and more frequently and the attitude of the stories have gotten more whimsical and lighthearted. im guessing this is at least partly due to his influence.

as such, its a shame to see him go :(

Kieth, i hope your still planning on dropping into the comments regularly; reading you and gar's witty banter is sometimes as fun as reading the comics itself.

good luck with school.

PS: congrats Gar and Paige on your engagement. do you have any big plans for the ceremony?

Oh just look at him and that tounge sticking out. Adorable. Not Neko, Murphy,Neko's looking a bit creepy on this page.

I've been using this handle for so long (pronounced N-eye-ah, short for Nyathearai), that I tend to forget that those three little letters have other meanings. Spent a few shocked moments just now, wondering why Paige had shouted at me two years ago. xD Herp de derp derp!! >.>;
