Awakened from a Coma!

Well, uh, not a real coma of course. A creative one to be precise.

So yeah, as you can probably tell I wasn't exactly able to keep up with the whole "weekly webcomic" song and dance routine but don't fret, I haven't totally nixed the idea of "I Be Bitchin'" or Ivy for that matter. The general concept and the character will live on through mini comic form. I completed an itty bitty comic that I'll be giving away at this weekend's Vancouver Comic Con (Incoming Shameless Self-Promotion: Sunday January 16 at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver, British Columbia from 11 AM 'til 5 PM).

The theme will be Pretentiously Poetic Cliches. Basically it will be a good ol' ripping of all those cliches we all love/loathe scattered in poetry, novels and other such classy prose pieces throughout the ages. I'm always open to suggestions for annoying, hokey cliches to mangle so feel free to hit me up at or send me a tweet on Twitter @DramaticMonarch.

To entice you, here's a preview pic...

Wanna know the object of Ivy's ire? Then you'll just have to swing by the Heritage Hall in order to find out. Lawd, I feel so dirty...

Of course, I'll still do other minis or some occasional exclusive one-off strips to post here from time to time.

I Be Bitchin' Presents Totally Unrelated Tales!

Holy falafel, it's back!

I'm just getting back into the groove of doing "I Be Bitchin'" on a more weekly basis. I'm sure I will be able to do that once I'm totally finished with all these conventions. Just one more left to go! The convention in question? Vancouver Comic Con. (September 12 at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver, British Columbia. Mark it down!)

Onto the comic itself, I swear this will be the last of filler for a good long while. Just wanted to experiment with something a little different, say along the lines of "True Tales of Human Trauma" and the "Meanwhiles" in Jhonen Vasquez's comics.

And yes, this was based on a true story. Not necessarily one of my own but of a good friend of mine. It truly took "Parental Guidance Suggested" to a whole new level.

Ever had a truly awkward movie-watching moment with your 'rents?

Updates and Welcomes By Text

Heya peeps! I never really got to do much of a "welcoming" post so I figured now would be a good time to do so.

I've been working on "I Be Bitchin'" for a few months now (started in April) but I've had to take some time off the webcomic for a little while now in order to organize and prepare for a few upcoming comic conventions. The first of which being Comix and Stories 2010 which is going to be held this Sunday (August 29) at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver, British Columbia from 11 AM until 5 PM.

Now that I've gotten that little shame-free piece of self promotion out of the way, I am planning to get back into the routine of uploading these comics on a weekly basis very soon.

Expect to see a fresh, brand new comic in that same frame of time. ;-)

For now, here is Ivy in her best summer gear, giving you a warm welcome to you and the birth of this fully completed webpage. Huzzah!

I Be Fillin' With a Dated Update

Oh hey, it's filler!

Yeah, this was back when I was having a bit of a hectic week and I wanted to update on the comic delay but didn't quite feel that a written update would suffice. So I decided to do an update in comic form.

Do you believe in the walphin? The walphin certainly believes in you.~

I Be Bitchin' #6: The Notepad (Part 4)

Hey kids! It's time for a Totally True Story!

A few years back, two friends of mine went out and saw "The Notebook" in theatres and the ushers really were handing out free packets of Kleenex for those seeing the movie. Gotta love real life. Too bad I haven't heard of any other theatres doing that since.

Anyone else think that movie theatres should hand out complimentary kleenexes?
