Hi, it's me Thomas.

Well, here are some questions:

- Why are you making a webcomic?
- What tools do you use to for the comic?
- Where do you get your ideas?
- How did you come up with your extraodinary style?
- Would you tell a little something about yourself?

EDIT: Oh, and what the heck IS it, what makes UG ugly?

Indeed, those are all good. I had a list of questions set aside for the projected FAQ, but as I've gone through them, I've discovered that I've already answered a lot of these in the comic itself over the last year. I'll list them here anyway, and maybe you guys can give me some opinions on whether or not they're still necessary at this point:

- How old is UG? What grade are they in?

- Is this comic autobiographical?

-Will UG and Queerboy ever get together? (You would not believe how often this is asked. I can only assume that not everyone realizes he's gay.)

-Will UG and Fatboy ever get together?

-So, wait, is Cynical the older sister, or UG? And is their brother older or younger?

-For that matter, where is their brother?!

-What does Tilde's mother have, exactly? (Actually, no one has ever asked me this, but I wish they would.)

Edit: Can't believe I forgot about this one: "What were the characters names before they picked up their nicknames?"

Well, since it is frequently asked questions, you should include questions, even if you already answered them somewhere else.
After all, some new readers might not want to read the comic from the all the beginning to find the answers themselves.

As for Tilde's mother, I actually would like to know, what she has.
I remember Tilde mentioning "flare-ups" but I didn't know, what it is (english is not my mother's tongue, mind you, you might have noticed already) and I though this is why I couldn't figure it out.
Are you actually going to answer this question or is this one of those enigmatic things like "What makes UG ugly"?

However, those were my 50 dollars.
I think I'll let somebody else talk now...

I'm not sure why I never just came out and said it... Tilde's mother has Lupus.

Sorry, never heard of it.

EDIT: Just came up with something I'd also like to know: About how long does it take you to finished one comic?

I'm just anxious to see what humorous questions you add; I think I read an FAQ page now waiting for a punchline, just like in the strip it accompanies.

Examples:

Q: Are most people, like me, intimidated by your exotic looks and superior intelligence?

A: Yes.

Q: What did MENSA say when you turned them down?

A: They cried and cried. It was awkward.

Q: I want to be you. Can I please, please, please be you?

A: No.

Come on, baby, don't let me down! Just one zinger! Huh?
No, YOU shut up!

No, she's totally lame. She should probably throw herself into oncoming traffic, or something... :wink:


Edit: Gah! I just imagined what life would be like if you actually threw yourself into oncoming traffic and it made me sad and I take it all back! D:

Well... not exactly. The character of Fatty was loosely based on certain aspects of her personality and physicality. But really, much like all of my characters, Fatty is different aspects of me. I couldn't write the story if it were any other way. Some of the characters in UG were inspired by real people in my life, but honestly, they are very loose interpretations.

Edit: Gah! I just imagined what life would be like if you actually threw yourself into oncoming traffic and it made me sad and I take it all back!

i would never! i would miss you too much! **hugs** btw, you were in a very wierd convoluted dream i had last night about some girl i had to bring somewhere who was homeless and shoeless, so i convinced her to steal an old pair of eddie's shoes, and somehow they fit her, and then you caught us, didn't care we were stealing eddie's shoes, and gave us a ride... don't remember much else of it, but love for nan was the emotion when you showed up! :D[/quote]
