Ha, this is most excellent. Truly a work of both COMIC and INTELLECTUAL genius.
Ha ha, I’m totally lost. Brilliant! 😀
I will try to make all my comics totally impossible to follow in future!
I didn’t realise you were posting comics online again- even one-offs and random sketches is better than the stuff I read regularly. I particularly like the true life stories, makes me feel a bit better about nearly screaming the first time I drove at 5mph at the age of 24.
You’ve come a long way since Terror in Room 76, and you’ll go a long way yet.
Well this has just blown my mind.
Someone better contact Scott McCloud quick.
haha wow, that was great
Very, very Awesome. I love the new characters too, you should totally do a long running comic detailing all their antics and adventures! ^_^
Steve and Beaver?
Don’t be silly. Those names would never work. A Baboon of taste and refinement such as Mr Erudite would never use such names.
they are named Beaver and Steve, and they have their own website.
And please bring them out of hiatus! I’m going through withdrawals “shudder”
Brain hurt now.
On a MONDAY?
It’s only a monday if you live life from left to right.
i cant follow this for shit left to right makes no sense nor does top to bottom or right to left or bottom to top.
hint: Beaver is reading it from left to right.
This is too awesome for words.
TOO AWESOME I say, for WORDS.
i still dont get it…
If you read from left to right what Beaver says makes sense, while Steve’s comments seem to be nonsense. But if you read from top to bottom Steve makes sense and Beaver talks nonsense. It’s two comics in one!
That was clever. Was the elf sick twice, when you read it from top to bottom?
Try reading it from the elf’s point of view, and you’ll see how many times it was sick…
OMG I just figured out the elf’s timeline! That’s so brilliantly awesome! :D:D:D
Confusing this very is!
Poor elf. Too much drinking, perhaps?
On a side note:, Mr. Turner: did you see the article in today’s Grauniad where the little girl who complained about the cancellation of the comic went to their offices for the day? http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/jun/15/charlotte-jones-complaint-comic-jon-henley
Yes! I saw that! If only they’d let her bring the comic back. But then again – golden monkey head? She obviously wasn’t reading that closely!
Ooooh, I like very much.
I’m not really anonymous.
Wait… what happened… Did I read a comic… OR DID THE COMIC READ ME?
I really feel for the elf, it’s almost as if he’s stuck in some weird perpetual time loop of vomiting – Poor Guy!
It’s not much of an existence, but I like to think he makes the most of it.
Oh, nicely done!
I can’t compete with that!!
you can, and you MUST.
jesus that’s genius and funny! Waves of jealousy are floating towards you.
It’s about time you returned some of the ones I sent you. Stop hoarding them!
But I enjoy hoarding! I wear everything I own muc like the crazy old hags in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
hot damn boy, get Scott Mccloud on the phone and tell him to call 911! CAUSE YOUR ON FIRE!!!
hmm on the other hand that seems superfluous, still you kick ASS
Brilliant! And not just because it has Beaver & Steve in it, or because of the vomit joke(s).
To be TRULY Scott-McCloud-worthy, though, it needs to be about 8,000 pixels wide.
Stever and Beave???
This comic was like two comics in one!!
ALSO: STEVER AND BEAVE
I’m digging the monochromatic experiments.
I think you may have discovered the new sudoku
If there’s a competition, you win it.
I hope this strip makes you rich beyond your wildest dreams.
Are you really Alan Moore? It’s ok to tell us if you are.
but I left out all the blue genitals.
Oh, very good!
I bet that took some planning!
Yay! Hooray! Yippee!
I still dont get it. it goes left to right, but it doesn’t make sense like that. Do i have to put them in order?
I guess im not smart enough to enjoy beaver and steve. 🙁
Oh wow! I love this!
I’ve long wanted to do a mini comic that meets in the middle and then goes back the other way.
I’m disappointed that despite steve’s words, this comic can’t be read diagonally. You, sir, are a hack.
I read this twice, once normal and once downstairs. Totally confusing either way 🙂
oh, how i have longed to see my long missed heroes!
you are the David Lynch of comics James!
Finally a Beaver and Steve comic! I just hoping that you have more James Turner.
Dear Mr. Turner, I’d like to inform you that a picture of you(James Turner)is posted on the wikipedia page of some other guy named James Turner(James Turner- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Turner_(illustrator)). The other James Turner doesn’t look like you at all and he is bald and has a dumb stache, unlike your un-bald and handsome self(James Turner), so I guess you should fix that dookie, or have someone fix it for you(not me though, I’m too busy being helpful/annoying). So there.
Re: bulgaria wooo
My evil doppelganger! Thanks for the heads up – I have removed the offending picture.
How come this comic isn’t on the website?
My goodness, that is the most brilliant formalist comic I’ve read in a while!
Man, my brain hurts when I try to figure out the elf’s point of view…
this comic strip was amazing!
this is the coolest thing I’ve seen today!
I miss beaver and steve 🙁
This is brilliant. Like, TWO RONNIES sketch brilliant. Bravo.
I like how it’s the same for the elf either way!
OMG MOST AWESOME AMAZING COMIC EVER
I am going to forward this to EVERYONE
and form a collection of superior comic readers that understood this comic and whom has all read the two version of this same comic the first time round
and you sir will be our god
excellent day to you Mr. Turner
Thank you! I will try to be a benevolent god.
This sir, is a work of genius. McCloud would surely approve. Besides, who could say no to an impossible vortex of infinite regurgitation?
Hey so I really want to include this as an example in one of my English lit. essays for university. Would you be okay with me using it? You’d be properly credited, of course, and I’d only have good things to say.
Re: Intellectual Brainstuffs
You’re quite welcome to use it – although I’m not sure you’ll get a very good mark as a result.
this made my day, ta ‘boon. 🙂
