We set out to create a comic that doesn't suck, and TrOObs didn't suck, so as you can see, we accomplished our goal. The problem is some Limey in the UK got a great idea in his head to pre-buy existing domain names and fish them out from under people for his own profit. We became victims of this scam and had to rename our comic while he reaps the rewards of our former traffic and trys to sell them shoes that in our opinion only low class hookers would wear. That notwithstanding we are dedicated to making you laugh and so SCREW HIM, we are trudging on despite his douchery. We renamed our comic to "Men of Myth" because it's a satirical comment about the main characters in our story. Now, despite the fact that our characters share the same names as us this is more out of laziness than anything else. Not a single event in this comic is drawn from real life, well, except for the talking cow part. The real challenge we face on a daily basis is trying to keep other comics from looking so bad and not very funny. Yes, it sounds egotistical, and maybe it is, but genius always seems egotistical in its own time period. Look at history, you don't ever hear about the people that aren't full of themselves! Alexander the Great, Napoleon, King Henry the 8th, Mother Theresa, all people with massive, over inflated egos. You never read about John Elliot Smith the humble village Butcher or Samuel Livingston the passive town Blacksmith. Aaron and Scott will surely be accused of being "megalomaniacs" or "egotistical" or "pompous" but mark our words, hundreds of years from now kids in anti-gravity boots will be reading Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) and giggling as they use their pan-dimensional jump belts to come visit us in the past.

So how did this all happen? Well, have you ever seen how quickly the average toilet will flush water down? The hours and hours of time that Aaron and Scott spent concepting Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) was thrown out about that quickly. To be honest, the comic sort of evolves on its own, and we are there to simple cattle prod it along. The issue now is that it has evolved to the point where it keeps drinking all the beer and wanting to stay up all night and watch television when we are supposed to be resting so we can work the next day. Not to bore you with details, but the other night Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) watched the free Cinemax preview ALL WEEKEND, never sleeping at all. Well we were so exhausted that neither of us could get up Monday for work and we were both fired. It's really lame too because we are almost out of frozen pizzas and.... sorry, back to the origins of the comic.

The comic now is much like a food fight. We throw spaghetti at each other, duck, look at the wall and see what sticks. Unlike spaghetti however, our comic is still edible once it has been flung. It is our hope that through the laughter you are guaranteed to experience while reading Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey), your saliva glands will drip like Pavlov’s puppies as you await the next issue. Should you not find the comic funny, might we suggest growing a new sense of humor, because it is overtly obvious how funny we are and how great Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) is. The point is, if you aren’t laughing, it’s YOUR fault, not OURS. Unlike most bar fly women, Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) does not get better with more beer, however it can enhance the experience. We don't condone that sort of behavior if you are under the legal age however; it’s just a broad, general statement.

Most importantly, Men of Myth (formerly called TrOObs but not anymore thanks to the Limey) does NOT support global warming, the slaughter of the rain forests, spiders or Fionna Apple (okay, that was a cheap shot, but what the heck is UP with her). We do support snuggling, being kind to your fellow man and gawking at beautiful women. We truly hope that you enjoy our creation, and if you don't, feel free to tell us on our contact page.
