Grin + Bear It: If They Came To Hear Me – SPLAT
September 19, 2010 27 Comments
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… something exciting and cool happened. But right now some crudely drawn space soldiers are sending you a weekly infusion of innuendos and lolz, brought to your face by the ever funny  Grin + Bear It.

A word from Luke about the past, present, and future of Grin + Bear It:
A while back I started drawing Halo comics, with the sole intention of making my friends laugh. Then, a little over a year ago, I got an email from bs angel offering me a weekly spot on one of the world’s biggest, and hawtest, gaming blogs. Multiple nerdgasms followed. Since then, the comic’s given me so many opportunities; early access to the Reach beta (thanks to angel), a ticket to the premiere of Halo Legends (thanks to Mr. Pointyhead of Xbox Live), and several mentions on the Bungie feed (thanks to urk, who also gave me one of my favourite critiques of the comic: “They always make me laugh. Can’t post some of the stuff for obvious reasons. Shishka would cry.”) to name a few.
But most of all, I’ve been able to read all of your comments each week, and I’ve enjoyed that more than anything. Angel’s always said to me, right from the beginning, that it’s all about me having fun with it – and thanks to every single one of you I have. Thanks.
If you still aren’t bored of me yet and want to keep following the comic, I’ve kindly been offered a place at HBO by Mr. Wu – which I’ve kind of bitten his hand off for. It’s not up and running just yet, but I’m sure you’re all familiar with halo.bungie.org so you know where to check in the near future :D
And remember: comics never die; they’ve just moved websites.
