Hello everyone, I'm NJ Huff and I used to do a webcomic called Emergency Exit that was once hosted on Comic Genesis. It's since gone independent but I still always loved the CG community. Back in 2011 I had to quit comics due to a bad back and neck injury and I only recently have recovered finally. I have lost contact with a lot of people during that time so I am trying to start over both with comics and an online social life. I figured maybe starting back here would be a good place to say hi and maybe make a few friends and see if any old ones are still around.

Postings are few and far between here these days. There's only been about a dozen posts in the last two months... :(

Hey, Rhys here. I remember seeing you around back in the day! I only recently came back myself (I had only posted actively back for about a year in 2006), but decided to try and come back around. Glad I am not the only one!

Hey NJ! A lot of CG people are still active over on Tumblr and Twitter.

Didn't mean to scare you there, Cope.

Glad to see a couple people, thanks for the welcome.

I don't have twitter and thumblr so I am way out of the loop.I am basically reintroducing myself to the internet. Is there by any chance a Discord channel CG people use?

There is! It's called "The Comic Mines." Unfortunately, I can't seem to generate an invite code. I think K-Dawg can though, if you can get in touch with him.

Seriously. It's almost as bad as Microsoft Skype.

Discord's a non-secure VOIP service with an EXTREMELY shitty T.o.U., but as is standard operating procedure on the internet, people don't bother to check that sort of thing. And so Discord's become the current reigning champion in the on-going "most popular VOIP service" war due to their successful social media campaigns.

In short: It's something to chat with people on the internet with a microphone and headset.

For ours we mostly use the text chat, if that matters.

I have no way to contact him myself, can you ask him about it? I'd love to chat with you guys. If they want me anyway

Hey all.

I still exist.

That is all.
