[Tommy, hide the dynamite- Mom is coming back!]

My reign over this fair land is soon coming to a close. In short time, I will play the jester to Kid C's lord. Kid C is more of a fool really; can one be a jester to a fool? Regardless, I will relinquish command. For now. If any of you out there wish to mutiny (that can be a verb and a noun, yes?), or perform a coup, please let me know. Along with command, I must surrender Kid C's copy of Call of Duty 4 for the 360. I am sure he had mentioned how his system had RRoD'd once again and during the time his console was away, I was at play. His console has been repaired and returned, in what seems to me a much quicker response this time around, and I know he is axious to get his Macmillian on. I have tasted the fruits of the game's online multiplayer, and must now make the purchase for myself. It's my addictive personality. I latch onto a game's multiplayer and the play it to death. I rarely reanimate the passion once the next killer multiplayer game comes out. I played Halo2, ChromeHounds, Gears of War, ShadowRun, Halo 3, and now Call of Duty 4 like mad. Looking to the release date lists, I cannot pinpoint the next game that will really tear me away. This is strictly in terms of multiplayer. My guess would be either Gears of War 2 (as of now, still officially unannounced) or Unreal Tournament III. Unreal is up in the air. I don't really go in for the speed freak shooter games as much, so we will see how that plays out. The next I must buy game will probably be Condemned 2. The first one was so good. Probably scariest game I have played. If the multiplayers actually managed to be good, I would be pretty happy, but I am holding out little to no hope for that. Okay, roll out the red carpet this weekend. Kid C will be back posting on Monday. Unless he feels a need to correct or deny association with me and whatever I have tainted his blog with. It's been real.

All right ramblers, let's get ramblin'.

[Heavin' Up A Barf]

Adam here. Still acting as Ninja Ken's liaison to the world. Not so much to say today. Wednesdays I generally work from 9 to 9, so posting some witty exchange between myself and my only worthy conversational partner, myself, is difficult to do. One thing to note though, is that one my cats is having an issue that is manifesting itself as a spot of piss on the floor of my home. Repeatedly she has tinkled a cat sized tinkle in the corner by the front door. It's carpet. It can't just be wiped away by Mr. Brawny. Going on a tagent here-just looked up Brawny to check I was right in remembering that particular paper towel brand, and the search results began with some pictures; some featured the Brawny Man with a mustache, and some did not-I believe I would want a mustached man to soak up the liquids in my household. Back to the piss. Each time I find the carpet tinged with my cat's leavings, I must soak it with carpet cleaner and then wait, and then rub vigorously with a damp cloth. I originaly believed it to be the doing of my other cat, but first hand witnessing of the pissing had proven me wrong. I have not ruled out the possibility of them working together, behind the scenes. In any event, the pissing is pissing me off. What does this have to do with Ninja Ken you may ask? Does it need to pertain to the comic at all?- is my answer to a question with another question, giving it with a tone that makes one suspect I am irritated that you, the reader, have interrupted this very important conversation between myself and myself, something I had said I had no time to do. Now you have called attention to my lies. More lies will follow; I promise you that. Kid C has a certain affection for this cat, an affinity. I think of them as each the other's spirit animal. If he were an animal, he would be my cat, and if she was a person, she would be Kid C. Kid Cat. Interesting fact: my cat's mother is also its sister- or some such inbreeding, and she has extra toes. I believe these genetic abnormalities have made her into a stubborn, simple being. Kid C. Perhaps the motive behind the pissing is in response to the severing of the soul connection between the two beasts by his temporary removal from the same state. Whatever the case may be. Stop pissing on my rug. It really brings the room together.

[While Picard is away, Data will play]

It's a transitional period for us here at Ninja Ken. And when I say 'us,' I mean Kid C. And when I say 'Kid C,' I mean Colin. There. The cat is out of the bag. The mystery that is the identity of Ninja Ken's blogger is revealed. Before I get to far into this, it may prove relevant that this is not Colin, but Adam. My name is brought up from time to time, so I find it only suiting that I reveal Kid C's name, if he has not done so already- I'm really not sure. Back to the transitional period. Until now (or soon from now), Colin has posted one of his comics and a small blog to go with it three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. He has done this alone. He was sole creator and executor to this blog. He has done well. But what is a man (besides a terrible little pile of secrets) without a good man or two behind him? Ignoring any possible gay jokes, he is not much. So in comes our friend Marshall, wiz at all things technological- that is to say a wizard, which would be relatively correct if I were to say I was a dwarf and Colin a valkyrie perhaps. Warrior needs food! Marshall shall (if that is not some kind of literary device, it ought to be) run the innards and the ongoings behind a new site and perhaps post as he wishes to it; I don't really know and may very well be speaking out of turn here. And I will begin posting as well. I am thinking a Tuesday, Thursday type thing to compliment Colin's schedule. I get this honor, or chore as it is yet to be determined, due to my long allegiance to both Colin and Ninja Ken. I have, I believe, been the main reader and perhaps target audience since its conception, and more often than not am the spiritual meat of Ray, as he was based of my creation of Hero Ray and integrated into the comic. How this happened I can't quite remember; maybe Colin will inform us all later on. Before I fan-dangled my persona into the strips, Ninja Ken was doing God-knows-what. Sometimes I miss those days. Even I get tired of my judgments. Someone's got to do it. On with today's comic- seeing as how posting it was really my only direct order. Sometimes a soldier has to take initiative. Or something.

Hey my buddy is in town, thats why I'm so late with this. As I mentioned before Adam will be at the helm next week, lets hope he doesn't somehow explode blogger with his use of a mac. Oh god I hope he doesn't post somehow using his iPhone. Gah.

Todays comic is about one of the greatest debates of all time. Who was better- Scottie or Welshy.

[Look at me, I have friends, Im so great]

So yeah, its been snow snow snow all the time lately, and I am getting awful sick of these terrible work commutes.

Also I have buffalo strips in the oven right now. mmmmm.

Do I keep going on about the actual Ninja Ken website? I do? I sorry. But yes, its coming, very slowly, but its on its way. In fact I think Ill call up Mr. Marshall and ask him whats what with the logo and such.

I am actually going to be out of town for work next week, so I think I will leave the posting of the comics that week up to Adam.

Are all these names and people confusing and angering to you?.... lets just say get used to it chump, changes are on the way.

This comic is basically a conversation I had with a friend of mine the day after the superbowl. I wont mention his name, because that would be just to many name drops in one post.

(psst, it was Joe)

[Its actually pretty warm today]

Well the ninja ken website is pretty much up and running. It just needs a few layers of spit, polish, and a little bit of the ole html before its ready for the discerning eyes of the internet (all 40 people a day who look). Gotta fix up the logo, gotta make a few links, write a faqs page, etc etc.

I wrote a comic to go along with the superbowl, but haven't drawn it yet, so look forward to it for Wednesday.

Oh also NK is in the weekly webcomic wrapup over at joystiq. Be a dear and go read the entries, and if you like mine, then go ahead and click that link.
