Comic Ad Free & TN Comic Patreon

Posted March 26, 2016 at 12:55 PM by Threeboy in Comic
If you're reading TrueNuff Comic (and you should, we just hit comic #550!) you will notice that the website no longer has banner ads. Here’s the thing, the banner ads looked like shit, didn't earn us anything and our smart readers are probably using "ad block" anyway.


So instead of banner ads we have set up a Patreon page for TN Comic so our readers can support us directly. The comic has always been free-to-read (and we intend to keep it that way) but if anyone wants to support us they can get some cool perks like seeing the comics 24 hours early or getting cool wallpapers for their mobile devices and computers.

Thank you for your supblort!

TrueNuff TrueNuff is 15 years old today!

Posted February 28, 2016 at 1:22 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Fifteen years ago (shit!) a couple dudes tried to make some comic strips for their university newsletter and the newsletter got canceled so they decided to put the comics on the internet instead. They threw together a website with a countdown clock and on February 28, 2001 the first comic was posted.


The TrueNuff Comic countdown image - you'll have to imagine the clock part.

TrueNuff.tv also turns 10 years old this year (goddamn!). I'm not sure of the exact date but I do vaguely remember our teaser trailer said "2006" at the end of it. Back then we were uploading low resolution videos to the website Revver (which is now dead) because they paid money to content producers before YouTube started their "partner program".

Anyway thanks for reading, watching, commenting, buying merch/drawings and all that stuff.

Cheers!

TNTV Clumpy Videos & Video Commentary

Posted August 22, 2015 at 12:29 PM by Threeboy in TNTV

Over the last few months we've put up a few clumps of videos. A couple Stolen Star Wars (Episode I / Episode II) videos, a couple Detective Police Cops (#1 / #2) and four Special Feature Commentary videos. Not sure if we will be releasing clumps of content from here on out but we didn't see value in trickling out videos one by one so we just threw the videos out Chinese restaurant style - when they were done.

More deets after the jump...

TrueNuff TrueNuff Radio (It's a Podcast)

Posted February 20, 2015 at 3:54 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image Last weekend the TrueNuff.tv crew gathered at Jeff's apartment to recorded the "bumpers" (the intro and outro parts) for the 2014 blooper reel. Most of the dudes went home but Jeff & I decided to keep the creative energy (and drinking) going and spontaneously recorded a podcast. The first episode(s) and all future episodes will be at www.truenuffradio.com if you're interested.

Whoa dawg, check out them beats by Bitch.

TNTV TrueNuff.tv Website Updates 2015

Posted February 6, 2015 at 7:04 PM by Threeboy in TNTV
The TrueNuff.tv website has been ushered into the year 2015 and has gone, as the cool kids say, responsive. That means it optimizes for phones and them tablet thingamajiggers.


Also, you can now comment on videos directly on videos on our website. It’s the same Disqus platform that powers comments on our Blogs and Comics and it's super easy to use. Infact it's so easy to use I'm not even gonna explain how.

If you can’t figure it you probably shouldn't be commenting anyway.

Comic Bigger Comics

Posted January 27, 2015 at 1:09 AM by Threeboy in Comic
Image Considering it's the year 2015 and we're no longer in the era of dial-up (although if you check Rob's garage you'll probably find two 56k modems packed away for some reason) I figured it's time to bump up the size (resolution) of the comic strips.

Exported comics were 940 pixels wide but now they're up to a beefy 1170 pixels wide. The comics should be much clearer especially older comics where the text was hard to read. Depending on what device you read on you may need to scroll or pinch and zoom a bit. I also turned down (for what) the JPEG compression so the colors should look smoother. Adventurer be warned! With the new size comes a price: you may notice drawing quirks in the older comics but whatever it's part of the charm - don't judge. If these changes are straight up ruining your life let me know and I'll see what I can do but progress has to be made, dammit!

Also the comic isn't officially "back" or anything but if there are new comics they'll probably be posted Wednesday instead of Saturdays. If you want an easy way to be notified when we post a new comic get on the Mailing List.

If you missed it there was a couple rough sketches posted to Twitter / Facebook this past weekend.

Comic Comment on Comics!

Posted January 22, 2015 at 9:01 PM by Threeboy in Comic
ImageYou can now, if you’re so inclined, comment to TrueNuff Comic strips using Disqus! (the same thing that powers our blog comments) You should see a "comment" link below every comic strip that will take you to the comment section where you may profess your love for us. Uh, that got weird quick. So yeah what’s cool about Disqus is you can login using your Facebook or Twitter account saving you the hassle of creating yet another account.

New comics were posted to the site the past couple saturdays and a third comic will be up this saturday - can I keep this up this breakneck pace of once a week!?

Historical data suggests "no".
