About this comic

Just have to think that the portal gun would do things for W.C. that would change his entire outlook.

  2. What a faithful homage to icon of old and new. Beautiful.

    I was just watching classic Looney Tunes with a friend over the weekend. Fantastic pairing in the comic! Oh the hijinks of one, While E. Coyote. (Super Genius)

  4. Michael says:

    Did he order it from ACME? If so the road runner will still be able to run through the portal and evade all harm while Wile E. Coyote would attempt to enter the portal but hit a wall. It never fails but the poor guy never wins.

    Excellent job on this one Scott!

  6. Moongoat says:

    I bet this was originally going to be a 3 panel comic too, but you were like “fuck it, I’mma play portal 2 now”

  7. This really shows your kick arse art skills. You amaze me.

  8. Melanie1001 says:

    This is utterly incredible. Beautiful and made me giggle. Acme tools have gotten better over the years!

  9. Jaythedeuce says:

    Bravo Mr. Johnson. My favorite as of yet.

  10. Rob Dalton says:

    Instant classic. Bravo.

    Wiley Coyote looks traced. That’s a compliment, not a scathing remark. It looks that way because you’re such an awesome artist and can draw him from scratch whereas I need 5 book on “How to Draw Properly” it even get the head to look right ;_;

  12. ColonolRadar says:

    Heh, just missed the Acme/Aperture science logo mashup on the portal gun 🙂

  13. James says:

    that calls for a story arc

  14. Sasquatcho says:

    I like the comic wish I could see how exactly the portal gun is to be used. Blue feathery splatter. Yeah.

      Orange end goes in road, blue end goes into mouth, hilarity ensues (probably because the Roadrunner it’s gonna be riding on a truck).

  15. Bevans says:

    Great comic, but I can’t help but wonder…is it even legal to sell prints of this? Won’t either Warner Brothers or Valve put a stop to this if they find out? Not that I want them to, of course.

  16. gimli says:

    Great print but, You sure you’re allowed to profit from that image? W.C is the IP of WB I think.

    • ColonolRadar says:

      Fair use dude

      • Bevans says:

        Fair use doesn’t cover maying money from someone else’s intellectual property. The comic itself is probably fine, but I don’t think selling prints is protected by fair use laws. Probably the worst thing that could happen is that Scott would get a C&D letter though.

      • sjefen6 says:

        Do you think comedians does parodies for free? + I want a print!

    • Hmmm…actually, you guys make a good point. Honestly, it was a force of habit when I put that print code in the post. But either way, you guys are right. Removing the print buying option.

  17. E says:

    Brilliant! One of your best ones, Scott.

  18. Hvglaser says:

    Love it! You really nailed the art style!

  19. Cory says:

    Absolute genius Scott. Love your work!

  20. Fantastic Scott, Your drawing talents and skills are insane 🙂

  21. Dane says:

    love it. just perfect.

  22. muzzi says:

    Legendary strip. Bravo!

  23. Chris says:

    So, is Aperture Science one of the R&D divisions of ACME? And is he going to be able to order the long fall boot as well? Because if not I foresee other problems in the future of one Wile E. Coyote (Super Genius).

    Great comic Scott. This is why I keep coming back.

  24. Mad-Bassist says:

    That’s a brilliant piece of work; my hat is off to you!

    As a fan-fiction nut, I just stick a humorous but sincere disclaimer on it and hope for the best—it’s all open and free. So far no one’s bothered me about Pepé Le Pew chasing Snarf around.

    If worse came to worse, I think the parody rules apply here.

  25. Wendell Beitzel says:

    Hey Scott,

    Any chance you could post up some common resolution sizes of this for wallpapers? I would love to have this on both my netbook, and my home pc.

    netbook – 1024×600
    home pc – 1920×1080 and 1680×1050

    Awesome job, by the way!!

    • faentur says:

      I agree with you Wendell. Since we can’t buy a print (I would have) could we please get some higher rez options?

  26. captainjack says:

    I want more of this!!

  27. MrMiyamoto says:

    It really should say “ACME Science” on the gun.

  28. Brett says:

    Are those mountains in the background Utahian? Possible #UtahConnection !?!?

  29. Nano Premium says:

    It’s actually a great and helpful piece of info. I’m glad that you just shared this useful information with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  30. Metalfox says:

    So good- I love the old coyote vrs road runner cartoons, and this concept is genius!

  31. bananahammer says:

    please please please make this a desktop background!
    it would be so awesome.

  32. plutonius says:

    Absolutely Awesome; Incredible work Scott!

  33. Darrell says:

    I’m sad this isn’t being sold. Crap! Why do you hafta be so fricken ethical!!!!! 😉

  34. Darrell says:

    Now that I think about it, this is parody. Sell away!

  35. Tony says:

    That’s brilliant. The Free Birdseed is a lie!

  36. Doug says:

    You should really make a print available of this one. I would actually buy it, and put it in my living room.

  37. Moobie says:

    It’s perfect! 😀

  38. Ralf says:

    Nice! I definitive would pay some bucks for a wallpaler & poster!

    Finally caught up

  40. Darren F says:

    I don’t get it.
    I’ve been coming to this site for at least 4 years now.
    It has become a sick intrest of mine. To see these terrible web comics continuously get
    positive comments just facinates me.
    I guess its like watching a dog poo. It’s horrible but you gotta see what comes out just in cast it’s something awesome.

  41. Darren F says:

    * in case it’s something awesome.
    nothing kills a point like a typo.

  43. Beans-me says:

    looks crazy

  44. Darkane says:

    Any chance of a larger image for use as a wallpaper?

  45. Doro626 says:

    Grats Scott. Joystiq found out what we already know. Frogpants rule!

  46. My foremost priority in the professional life to become an expert writer but it seems to be so difficult now as to express your thinking and feelings in few and specific words is very much difficult there fore i just want to appreciate for the awesome work you are doing here.

  47. Jadoo TV says:

    Not that way you explained it this is not the complete information what you said in that there is a lot more to describe about because every writer seems to be the same in this field.
