Strip #1000 Celebrating in true Neko the Kitty style.

Don't forget to vote!

[EDIT: This one hinges on knowing a semi-obscure word, so in the fine educational tradition of Neko the Kitty Comics: here's the Wikipedia entry for 'Bathos'. Yes, Wikipedia.]

Poor Bummy. Relegated to balloon weight... Congrats on 1k... Bathos for sure.

(Side note: 46th? Da fuck have we been doing? We're slacking off! Vote people! I wanna see this strip at least 30th.)
(Double Side note: Seems my rant has made the rank rise by 4. A ranty Advencha for sure.)

Certainly would explain hollywood... I've always wondered what ever happened to the wow at the end. In fact I've become obsessed with discovering the formula. Tragic, banal, and carte blanche endings are fine, but I want to find the "wow" at the end. And still, I ask my self. Is that all there is to a fire?


Reply Doyler (Guest), July 2nd, 2012, 3:25 am

not really... Hang on - didn't you skip like a couple o hundred strips before? That means this isnt 1000? Is that why its bathos? Cos this isnt 1000? Just askin...if it is 1000, yay! But if not.....

He lapped a thousand strips maybe 200 hundred odd strips ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QveyV6U8oQo

Just think of this as free avatar day and run with it.

@Doyler: Eh? Are you talking about those "Missing Scene" strips from when Gar, the character, got in that accident?

Also: The "The More You Know" logo would be perfect here, but damn NBC fucking trademarked that already... XP

Reply Doyler (Guest), July 2nd, 2012, 4:11 am

Yeah. Missing scenes. Hence, not 1000 strips. Its just a naming convention, not a count! Also - Gabriel's Thoughts - what?!

Reply Draven (Guest), July 2nd, 2012, 6:38 am

Horray for 1k Watching the art develope over the 1000 was as interesting as the content of the strips themselves.

Reply Charles (Guest), July 2nd, 2012, 2:16 pm

Congrats, been loving this comic so far!

Reply DrakeFeatherwing, July 2nd, 2012, 2:53 pm

That was actually rectified in an exposition strip later on (In it's own bass-ackward way.) Just sayin...

Congrats on your thousand. I think I had may have had too much fun trying to imagine all the things that could happen between Neko and that balloon. So much so in fact, that when nothing happened I was relieved. Maybe I'm just paranoid...maybe I've seen too much...or maybe balloons are the evil machinations I've always feared them to be.

The world may never know.

I guess head exploding powers don't work on balloons...

Reply Crayola (Guest), July 3rd, 2012, 12:26 pm

Congrats for 1000, or not quite 1000 or over 1000 or whatever this actually is! I love it lol. (And I managed to spot bummy for the first time in, like, EVER. obvious ftw :)

Reply NtKGar, July 4th, 2012, 2:14 pm

The Long Troll OK, I should probably clear this up: this is not the thousandth Neko the Kitty strip, it's just strip #1000.

Neko the Kitty's first hiatus started in May 2005 at strip #320. The strip started again in December 2005. At the time I thought it'd be a good idea to acknowledge the long lapse in time between updates by giving one of the characters no memory of that period, so the storyline with Gar waking up from a coma started...at strip #488

Anyway, I kept going and the strip number became, as Doyler pointed out, a naming convention. According to the handy-dandy SmackJeeves strip count, there are 892 strips up on this site at this time. One of those is Square and Circle, one is the Fire Safety Tips with Satan thing I did for strip #666, there's 2 Dancin' Angus pages, 3 Scene Missing cards, 4 BFFs strips, 5 Bummy strips, 5 Guest strips, the 5 pages of Keno Cooper and the Fly, plus 7 pages of miscellaneous filler. That makes 33 non-'Neko the Kitty' comics, so this is technically the 849th Neko the Kitty strip. It should be 832 (1000-168), so I don't know what's going on there.

Anyway, when people started asking what was going to happen for the thousandth strip, I just thought it was funny that something I set up seven years ago had carried through.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I like my readers, but never for a moment imagine that I'm beyond trolling the shit out of them.

Gee You're wonderful Mr. Mugato Yes, yes, your comic has been around for more than a decade you've reached a thousand strips and we're all very proud of you.

I'd say I'm launching fire works for you but I'd much rather be celebrating my independence.

Reply NtKGar, July 4th, 2012, 5:53 pm

Actually slightly less than a decade.

It'll be ten years in August :)

Pop? I was scrolling through all this... waiting for keno to jump in and pop the balloon! :3 Maybe I've just been playing too much BTD...

Reply DrakeFeatherwing, July 5th, 2012, 4:06 pm
