GUMO #117 - Professionalism - Another Day at the Office

Luckily, Alex has now escaped the madness of IT work and will be entering his final year soon. Put off leaving as long as possible, mate!



GUMO #116 - My Job - Test Monkey

Thanks to Alex for this week’s comic, cheers mate! He’ll be writing next week’s one as well, provided a small snipping of the dialogue takes place.


GUMO #115 - For Truth and Justice

I was slightly rushed for time this week, so I chose to spend a little time learning these background things. I went back to black and white because I’m more comfortable with it. More effort next week, promise.


GUMO #114 - The Merchant of Venice and the Idiot of Bristol

My faith in the banking system was shaken by this play.


GUMO #113 - Must Be Sonar

The play was actually very good, thank you for asking. It was The Merchant of Venice. Libby was phenomenal.


GUMO #112 - Run! Get To The Job Centre!

Two months since he started. Two months of this, day in, day out.

And Triad murderers.


GUMO #110 - Conversations With Triad Murderers (1)

GUMO #111 - Conversations With Triad Murderers (2) 

 He meets so many strange people in his job…

I know I’d be pissed if I had to wait a week to get another comic based around the same topic, so here you go. Don’t say I don’t treat you, because I just did.


GUMO #109 - Fry-Gate

The offending item has not been used. It’s been three weeks.


GUMO #108 - His Day In Paradise

Poor Jack. His boss is a maniac.



GUMO #107 - Race Work

“What happened last week?”

Well, I’ll tell you, if you’ll put the spatula down and listen. We had a power cut. A big one. Broke the router – still not sure how, although I’m impressed with the power of the cut and disappointed in the strength if the router.

“And why is this up on a Wednesday?”

Jesus, you ask a lot of questions, don’t you? I’m changing things up around here. I had several epiphanies in the past few days – like buses, they all turn up at once, typical. This particular epiphany told me that I wasn’t happy with how things were – this I knew. I asked the epiphany to hurry up, but it wasn’t listening. I think it, too, had a spatula to distract itself with.

The epiphany continued until I realised just how much time I had put into making GUMO for so long and I came to realise that the last comic I made that I actually liked was this one. That was three months ago.

So I’ve decided to calm down on the comic front. Why make two comics a week that I’m not happy with when I can make one comic and be reasonably pleased with the results? Plus, this will give me more time outside staring at my computer screen at stupid hours of the morning. Maybe I could get more sleep.

“Are you finishing the comic?”

No, champ. I’m going to update every Wednesday – subject to change, naturally – and I will keep doing the written weekend updates, because they are genuinely fun to do.

“Where do babies come from?”

Go back to your spatula.
