MTP - A momentary diversion by Samprimary
The comic that leaves you with more questions than answers.


What's this comic about, anyway?
Talking, mostly. The comic will grow in bizarre ways, but for now, it's talking. More specifically, it's what could be termed as 'pseudointellectual banter' - the central theme of the comic being that what they discuss might be marginally thought provoking. And it might even accomplish being funny, too .. but that's a long shot.

Are these characters ever going to do anything?
Not while they are sprites, no. Mainly just move around and talk amongst each other in an expansionless, featureless blank of a world. Fortunately, this limbo doesn't bother them too terribly much.

Why do they talk so much?
Well, because that's really the only way they can interact right now. Static and mostly unable to move, uneditable sprites like mine live a harsh life on camera. Fortunately, their spritehood is limited to their presence in the comic. Offscreen, they have wild, diverse, and interesting lives. Really.

I want to donate money to you, because I'm a terrible judge of character.
Please - there are people in my featured webcomics list that need the money. And they ask for it, too. Give it to them - they actually draw their comics.

Is this always going to be a sprite comic?
The second it doesn't have to be a sprite comic, it will evolve. It will become more powerful than you could have possibly imagined.

How do you update the comic every day?
How could I not? The comic may be cheap, but it makes up for it by being easy to produce. So if the comic stops being produced on a daily basis, I'm lazy or dead.

Are those your Ragnarok characters?
Nope. These altered versions of Ragnarok characters were shamelessly and brazenly stolen off a web site that had in turn stolen them from whatever company makes Ragnarok. Myself, I didn't manage to play Ragnarok for more than 3 hours.

Is this going to become a gaming comic?

Is this going to become a political comic?
I tell you what - James Buchanan is the worst president the country has ever had, and that's all there is to it.

Well, what kind of comic is left?
How about comics where roommates are furries who all go to the same school and work at the same place who are transported to a fantasy dimension where they sit around and play videogames and make sarcastic quips?

Are you making fun of 'How Not To Run A Comic'?
I will never mock a kindly informative series that gives me comics like this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one, because, let's face it - by trying to be informative, it turned into a running satire of webcomics, and that's awesome.

What's the most awesome part about doing a comic?
Autokeen. For serious. And, of course, the legions of fawning admirers, who all inexplicably seem to be nubile young college girls with degrees in hot oil reflexology massage; it seems the comic appeals to a very, very specific demographic.

What's the least awesome part about doing a comic?
I haven't been doing it for very long, but I'm all but assured that it's how something fun can immediately become arduous the second you put a deadline on it.

Can your comic ever live up to the majesty that is Boston and Shaun?
THE Boston and Shaun? What, are you kidding me? Of course not.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
I always liked the concept of being able to control the weather, but now I'll just settle for the ability to copy people's talents just by touching them. The day I get that super power, I'll be travelling to some comic conventions and shaking lots of hands at the booths.
