For someone like Emily Evil, there is no difference between detention and recess.
Logan asked me to draw detention as a “Purgatory” like place but I think I ended up with a result a little farther south of that.
I thought it might be neat to do a blog series regarding what goes on behind the scenes of a webcomic like ours.
First off, let’s talk a little about the origins of Super Skooled. Taylor and I both had our own projects that we wanted to prioritize, but for years we had not made much progress on them. After going to a comic con and seeing what other creative people were accomplishing, I finally approached Taylor about restarting Super Skooled, which we had toyed around with in the past. You can see evidence of our early efforts at the beginning of the strip.
The things that really made the difference this time were determination and accountability. Part of making any creative project is just rolling up your sleeves and pulling a Shia Labeouf. There is simply no substitute or workaround for hard work. Between the two of us, Taylor and I have put in countless hours simply sitting down in front of our computers, working on comics. If you want to make a comic of any kind, you must also have an insatiable appetite to create, a desire that overrides all of the myriad temptations that will be thrown at you.
But I would say that while determination is important, accountability is just as or even more critical. Taylor and I scheduled regular meetings where we would work on the strip. We continue these meetings to this day. While the best meetings are in-person, we make sure to touch base even when that’s not possible, even if it is over the phone. These regular meetings have kept us on pace when it comes to the release of the strip.
No matter how you look at it, without these two factors, Super Skooled would not exist.
Dear Reader (I know there’s only one of you at this point),
We had a small goof-up with the site this week; and as a result, we had a missing strip that didn’t get published. Everything is on track right now; but if things didn’t make sense this week, that’s why. Everyone involved with this egregious mistake will soon be fired. Consequently, I have been fired–jk jk.
If you’ve been following along on Facebook, you know about Brad’s adventures in Rio during the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Well, now that the All-Star Olympics are over, it seems that Team Klutz Finally made it to the big leagues with his own line of sports brand cereal covers.
No, not that one (He didn’t quite make the big leagues), but a local budget knock-off cereal is just as good, right?
Mmmm, Bronzies. Part of a somewhat balanced breakfast.
Introducing the nastier side of the Super Skooled Universe.

Who is this mysterious character whose face keeps showing up but who has yet to be introduced?
Rumor has it, he has already been given a name somewhere within the dark recesses of the “Superskooled Website.” But what makes up his character, and what part has he to play in these events?
Only 2 more weeks before we reveal this enigmatic character; but in the meantime, the floor is now open to conspiracy theories.
Who is the Man behind the awkward looking safety goggles?
Hello everyone! Our brand new superhero comedy webcomic is launching at Superskooled.com this week. After several years of gestating, we are finally getting this train wreck rolling. To celebrate, we are launching seven strips immediately and one strip per day over the course of this coming week. We will then be following our posted scheduled of updates on Mondays and Fridays. This strip includes all the work we have done over the course of some years along with brand new content being made on a weekly basis. Come along and join the madness.
Welcome to Superskooled, the webcomic where superheroes get educated. This strip shows the rivalry between a superhero and supervillain school. We hope that you grow to love it as much as we do. See you in class!
