Cinco De Mayo

Hello fellow readers! Cinco de Mayo is soon to be upon us all, and as Latino writing team, we thought we'd share you some cool tips to make sure you're celebrating is clean and well informed:

-Getting drunk in Cinco de Mayo is fine. Eating tacos and drinking tequila is fine. Wearing a sombrero is probably not fine. 

-Be safe! Have a designated driver, spot all emergency exists, maintain situational awareness.

- Cinco de Mayo is NOT the Mexican Independence Day.  Mexico does not have an equivalent to that beautiful American Blockbuster. 

Keep these hot tips in mind and you're celebration is sure to make none of your latino friends uncomfortable. The same applies to the newest Time Cheetah Page. It can only bring smiles and laughter. Have fun!

Franchise Similarities

We know what you're thinking.
“Poker? Exotic locations? Secret agents? Boy this sounds criminally similar to that other successful franchise..."
PERISH such thoughts from your mind! Unlike the unrelated Thames Pond movie Frapuchino Locale, the Time Cheetah adventure "Ford's Fortune" is completely original. Observe:
- Time Cheetah is a cat man. Not a British man.
- Time Cheetah doesn't just international travel, but he time travels as well. Much higher production values.
- Time Cheetah's catchphrase isn't just his name. It's “Rawr.” Much more civilized.
As you can see, miles apart. Completely litigation proof. Hey, why don't you check out today's new page and see for yourself?

Wallpaper's worth a Thousand Words

Cheetah's new office is terrible: bad lighting, old computer and boxes full of surprises. But nothing sums it up quite as well as his wallpaper. 

And that's all thanks to our wonderful Colorist, Mikey Cossin. 

Our script for this page only mentions that Time Cheetah's office has some super sad wallpaper. We didn't expect to get the dilapidated, debilatinglinly depressing wallpaper that Mikey used. Not only that, it gives the page it's own unique color pallete in contrast with the rest of the issue. WHOA!

Comics, like international trade deals, require cooperation. The final product is never 100% the writers or the artists, it's a wonderful combination. Today, we wanted to highlight a piece that improves the whole and the man behind it. Way to go Mikey!

Why not see this work of art on today's new Time Cheetah Page? Or check out Mikey's shirt shop? OR DO BOTH!

Welcome To Time Corp

If there's one thing I've learned while writing Time Cheetah, it's that you shouldn't have a main character who only ever says one thing. But the other thing I learned? You gotta be patient.

It took us a bit to finally get to the Time Corp lobby reveal, but this scene has been a part of the series since the early drafts of Stalin Island—our first Time Cheetah story. Then... how did it end up all the way in the second story, you ask? With a little something called editing.

Without spoiling what's coming up, Stalin Island used to contain more than a few things that you'll see in the early pages of Ford's Fortune. In our earliest drafts, Cheetah walks into Time Corp—much like he does here, but less hungover—and sits in a meeting where Ryan and Carl explain Stalin Island for a million boring panels. Not the best. At least that was better than the version where Rodriguez and the Chief argued about Time Cheetah for two pages—in an empty room without Time Cheetah even there. Superstar writers here, folks.

But as Stalin Island became less about Time Corp and more about getting Cheetah back in the saddle, certain moments had to fall by the wayside. We kept it in our pocket—we still wanted the lobby reveal, dagnabit—and once Ford's Fortune began to take its final shape, it seemed like a good place to bring Time Corp to the forefront!

Hope you enjoy the wonderful view that the inimitable Matt and Mike Cossin drew up, and stay tuned for a look at Time Cheetah's wonderful new office!
