We only reached 9?! I always thought it was ten. I must have been confused with drafts for a tenth one that didn’t make Greg chuckle so we stopped.
This one’s not so bad and Greg always liked referring to the resume picture at least. They already look a lot better than the early ones.
Maybe one day, we’ll make Nincomputes 2.0 and have a tenth comic.
This one turned out pretty well! Maybe I would have moved Ritterman’s spinning eyes from the second to the third panel if I had the chance. I must have used a 3D effect in Adobe Illustrator for the eight ball, which looks great but I’d probably keep a cartoon style these days.
Five years later, video cards still have overly complicated names. And December 27th? I’d never be able to finish a comic at work around Boxing Day/Week these days.

These products must have been codenamed AMD Spider. We went too far with the funs on this one.
This was perhaps the best Nincomputes, although it should have ended on the second last panel. I like how “No Way” appears in the space between.

The lines look smoother in this one. Six panels though? No wonder these took so long to make!
Hit the jump for the news post from this comic. I mention UT3, which was terrible compared to UT2004.
Look back at this one, I think the best part were the electric eel and the dog poo traps.
This is the first comic where I put some credits in and you can see that Linus helped out with ideas. I bet that Mac took me a long time to make!
The 6200 Turbo Cache was one of the cheapest video cards around at the time.
