Better than a poke in the eye with a bent fork. v1.1, Datazoid, 2003.  

Welcome to Natch. Such as it is.

Welcome to Natch Comics! A comic which, in its current incarnation at least, deals with marginally truthful aspects of my life. Updated daily! Make sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page.

Thought I'd post here, out of nothing to do.

And the fact that on the particular section of the web, nobody will ever see this.

Y'know, Dan could've replicated the feeling associated with restarting his comic by bashing his head against the wall until he passed out.

I hate cheese

Just so you know
Sean writes:
In case you were unsure, Dan was lying about building up a stockpile.

This has been a public service announcement on behalf of AlcoCorp

MediocreMan returneth!
Sean writes:
Wait, I was supposed to have a stockpile? I do have some memories of at times keeping 10 comics ahead, but they could have been alcoholic-stupor dreams.

Anyway, I'm told to post, so I post like the puppet on a string that I am. Avoiding a bit of work at the moment, namely a report on passages written in around the 14th century and how language has change. Basically, they hadn't invented spelling at that time and we were still ruthlessly stealing words from france in daring coastal raids that nearly wiped out the word stores of 1370. Oh, and there are innumerable squiggly things.

Fascinating as that is for anyone who isn't doing my course (And you can imagine how fascinating it is for us. No wonder english students have a reputation for laziness), I'll move on. Still thinking about going to amsterdam for a year, which'd be cool. Although looking at some of the exchange students around here I hope I won't look through dutch eyes as they do in mine. If that makes sense. You know what I mean.

I still don't know why I am again using this as my own horrible parody of a blog. Oh yes. I was told to post.

Blame Dan!

Oh yes. Dan, the word bubbles confuse me. Have the triangle things at least pointing towards the person who's speaking in future. Some obviously stupid people might have trouble working out who said what.

I'm not stupid! I have books!

So I says, I says, "thass no' my spleen".
Dan writes:
Right. On the offchance that I have any readers who are unaware of Jamie, quick explanatory comic. She's my girlfriend and as such should be in the comic, by rights.

The next comic will definitely be on time, because I have it already written, so check back on Saturday.

And I reiterate my point, Sean. Where's the abundance of FBs?

Reminds me, actually. You've all still got your natchlog passwords, post damn you!

I'm so, so sorry.
Dan writes:
I couldn't resist. They called to me. I should've deleted them all... But the work I'd put into them was too strong. Sigh.

So. Here it is. Natch version 3.0. With added fart all. Oh dear.

Someone shoot me.

The only update schedule I promise is one a week. I may chuck in a bonus here and there.

The forum can still be found at Rafters. To see what comic #3 is on about, you need to go there.

So. Here goes.

Shinies come in many forms
Sean writes:
This week I got a new six month batch of contact lenses. Not unusual, you may think. But this time they came with...get this. ALL-NEW cleaning fluid! Also comes with new containers. Exactly like the old ones, but these ones are chunkier. And COLOURFUL!

Thing is, I was actually vaguely excited about this. First my reaction to the new containers was, "hey. The left and right compartments are easier to tell apart. That'll be useful while drunk." And I believed that was the end of it. Sigh.

My problem is I'm too easily excited by new things. Whatever it is, whether it be a key-ring, an electric toothbrush or some new coffee mugs, I'll most likely stare at them for far too long and try and work out a way I can legitimately use them. At the moment I'm wondering whether I should scrap the lenses I have in now early so I can use the cool new stuff sooner.

Either everyone feels something similar, or I've identified myself as more freaky than I was already considered. Still, better than being ignored. Which is also a possibility.

The last ever Dan newspost.
Dan writes:
So, Natch is to convert to forums pretty soon. Head back to this address for further details.

Just thought I'd use this post for a bit of linkage... Whoever said cartoons that meant something can't be funny?

All things must pass...
Dan writes:
We all knew this day would come eventually. And, keeping in tradition with the comic, it's come at a completely random interval.

Natch Comics, in its current incarnation, is finished. Kaput. No more.

I'm a bit sad about it, but let's face it, it's not as good as it used to be, and I just can't keep to the schedules I set myself.


Natch will continue as an occasional venture, and be joined by sidecomics penned by others. But mostly, as the Natchlog is so popular, Natch will continue as a forum. Yes folks, a forum. You can all rant as much as you desire! This AND threads will be set up for comics. I wouldn't say you were benefiting, just not losing out.

Details to come when they've been sorted.

Oh, this is gonna get comments.

Beware the psychic
Sean writes:
For those of you that have me on MSN messenger (you lucky, lucky people!), you'll have noticed that my current nickname is "Sean - Cheese-eating surrender monkeys, beware". It's been like that for a week or so now, and it'll probably stay like that for a considerable time in the future.

Just now, I went downstairs and I happened to spot the driving section of the sunday newspaper. I'm a bit of a car geek y'see, and I like Jeremy Clarkson's reviews, the flippant bastard. Anyway, I was eating midnight toast (like toast, only at midnight), when I saw the phrase "the engine put up it's hands and played the cheese-eating surrender monkey".

It's not altogether suprising that the quote turned up. It's from an online comic strip (, so there's always the chance it could turn up anyway. But I've only just started using it in my nickname, and the comic in question has been up for months. I've started pre-quoting!

Tune in next week for when I regale you with the story of what will happen the week after that.

Dear God.
Dan writes:
After reading the comments of the recent posts, I have decided to never ever leave that big a gap between comics again. It just gets far too out of hand.

Oh dear.

Oh, and the Weirdocalypse has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday the 24th of this month. Ready the yaks.
