The first year I had a bit of a happy accident. I broke the fourth wall with the CAPN' GEEZER characters. the Capn' and Bot have two companions traveling with them in his time machine. Zoe and Red Shirt. I had been drawing my strips for years and stockpiling them. I had even put them in a self published monthly paper here locally. When I decided to fully go online with me comics I started from the beginning of the strips I had been stockpiling. So in the Halloween special the Red Shirt companion mentions that he has not been introduced into the series online yet but was with them for the special. The Capn' replies that he's a time traveler and that Red Shirt will be a companion and that he can cross his own time line for a holiday special. So I uploaded that page and was pleased with myself. The following Thursday, the day CAPN' GEEZER updates on, I uploaded the CG strip and realized it was the first appearance and introduction of Zoe. Zoe herself had not even been introduced into the strip yet. Even though these are humor strips I tend to have story lines and occasionally will call back on past events. But I have decided that each Halloween TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD specials would have something of the future hinted in it.
One year I had the CAPN' GEEZER strip written way ahead of the one showing up on the web in updates. I was also way ahead on drawing the CG strip and had just been updating it and not drawing new ones for a little while. I had been drawing Bot's new body and getting use to the design when I did the Halloween special that year. I drew Bot in his new body and never realized it till after the updates. That was fine though. Thru time travel we got another peak into the future. Another year I was doing my comics in a new style that hadn't started showing up in the updates before the Halloween special was drawn that way, it also had the Emu that was about to make an appearance in each title. In twenty eleven I had redisgned the SPACE REDNECKS space ship but it was first seen in the TALES special for that year before it happened. The question is what did I hide in plain sight this time ( 2012 ) that will be showing up in the titles. I guess you're just gonna have to read the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD : IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE special and then the ARCHIVES of my comic strips to find out.
