200 – A Magical Island

UPDATE: Since posting this strip, I have decided to end Robot Beach, and I’m concluding the journey of Robot and his friends with this strip. I did about 20 strips after this one which were originally posted online, however the story I begain with those strips ultimately went nowhere and so I’ve removed them from the site.

However, I still have plans to self-publish a book containing every strip that has appeared on this site. Look for more information on that in the coming months!

Wow guys. Two hundred strips. I’m not sure I’ve ever done two hundred of anything! It’s been a crazy journey for me getting this far. I feel very lucky that I’ve had so many wonderful people willing to come along on this crazy journey with me. Thank you all!

With this strip I am not just celebrating one milestone but TWO! I now have enough content that I can put together my very first book! More details on that in the near future, but needless to say, I’m pretty darn pleased with myself right now. :)

For those who caught the Calvin and Hobbes reference, please forgive me. Watterson has been a huge influence on me over the years and I’ve always loved the way he closed out his strip. You get a sense with that last strip that Calvin’s journey isn’t ending, it’s just beginning. I may be two hundred strips into this thing, but I really feel that the journey is just beginning for Robot Beach as well!

This comic is SOLD!
