This is the first comic to feature Burger Bar and its premium employee, James Nigel “Jimmy” Nesbitt aka. Pimple Faced Teen.
This one marks the first appearance of the two guys who later turned out to become our main characters: Jerry “Carbon Dude” Fallout and Spacebot “Metal Guy” 4000. A guy and a robot who are roommates and do a lot of funny stuff together. Here, for example, they sing a song.
The first of quite a few strip with Star Wars references, and the first one to feature the Geometry Nerds who have returned a few times since.
This was the crude doodle (pun intended) that started it all.
One night in spring 2011, while my son Leon and I were fooling around with our Wacom tablet, he said: “Draw something completely crazy and call it Energy Brain Comics.” This became a tradition, and a few weeks later we decided to create a website, to upload the comics, and to draw them regularly. The comics have since become more colorful, and there’s a story arc going on (even though there are often specials in between the regular, ongoing plot line).
