November Updates

November 6th, 2017, 12:49 pm

Hiya doin' everyone! Time for some updates!

I finally got the gallery working the way I want it to! I gotta be honest, I still can't wrap my head around html but I did manage to at least understand enough to make things happen! You know how you feel when you refill your car's antifreeze or oil and then you have a sort of sense of accomplishment? Like "Ah yea, I'm a real grease monkey now!". That's exactly how I felt XD

Anyway, the gallery is now divided into two sections. One for normal art and the other for NSFW art. All art is by Tailsteak himself unless noted otherwise on the thumbnail. I'll be updating the gallery every so often and I may even include some early sketches and designs early on in Roll To Save. Keep an eye out for that!

Tailsteak has just put an end to the periodic epilogue updates in his comic Leftover Soup, officially marking the end of the comic. However, he just launched a new futuristic, sci-fi comic and you should totally check it out! It's called Forward and it's awesome!

That's all for now. As always thank you for reading the comic and I'll catch ya in the next update!

Gallery, Cast Pages and a Special Update

July 12th, 2017, 9:04 am

Greetings everyone, hope you're all havin' a great day!

Since I have some site news, I figured I may as well use the actual news section on the front page instead of leaving it dormant for months on end XD

Gallery Page - It was brought to my attention that the gallery page has gone on the fritz. More specifically, all the images have became non existent. It seems that the image host I was using saw fit to delete all of my pictures after a certain amount of time. In light of this, I moved to another one which I believe is WAY more stable and less prone to deleting things all willy-nilly. I also decided to include some not necessarily safe for work images in the gallery. The ones done by Tailsteak may or may not be cannon, I haven't fully decided yet =P

Cast Page - This one is still broken as of now, I wasn't able to get to it after fixing the gallery. This one is gonna take me a little longer since I'm in the process of make the profiles look a little more snazzy with some details about the characters you may find interesting! I'll post here and on Twitter once it's up!

Special Update - So I have a folder filled with oodles of story ideas that may not get a chance to see the light of day. This is mostly due to the fact that since RTS updates every two weeks, I want to be mindful of what we put out. I want the stories we do to be meaningful and fun. Even if we do a one shot for an update (like the Leftover Soup tribute), I want some weight behind it. So in an effort to get those who are fans of the comic a chance to explore the characters and the world more, I'm dabbling with the idea of making an interactive story centered around John, his friends and their world.

It would play out like a simple Choose Your Own Adventure game, having you explore the city and interacting with characters both major and minor. Perhaps finding out a little more about them! I'm still noodling with the idea so if you want to see it happen, let me know!


That's it for now, keep tabs on this section and on my twitter for more updates!

February Updates

February 22nd, 2017, 9:03 am

Hey everybody! It's your ol' pal Jim here with some Roll To Save updates!

Before anything else, if you like the current style of RTS, I strongly recommend stopping by Tailsteak's main webcomic Leftover Soup. It's going to reach it's one thousandth page soon which also marks the ending to the series, so check it out! It's awesome and you'll have plenty to read if you start from the beginning!

As for RTS, as you've probably noticed, I'm in the process of transitioning from comical one-shots to a more story-based format. Humor and fun will still be there, but I also wanted to explore themes other than geeky stuff and D&D. Roll To Save is about much more than that. It's about the character's themselves, their interactions with each other and their world in general. I'm even planning on some emotional stuff down along the line but rest assured, the main feel of the comic is one of positivity and feel goodness. Just because life deals us a low blow, doesn't mean we can't do our best to pick ourselves back up. I think these days that message couldn't be said enough.

Anywho, what can you expect in these coming months for RTS? How about an LS reference, John cooking, Roxanne going through tons of sun screen and not one but TWO people from John's past! Wanna know more? Well you'll just have to keep tabs on the comic to find out! Till next time folks,

Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Change of The Guard

July 13th, 2016, 10:51 am

Hi there everyone! I noticed that the last news post was quite outdated so I figured I'd make a more recent one and set some things straight. Unlike "Another Day at The Office", this comic won't get the dreaded forever hiatus treatment. If you were wondering about ADATO, the artist Frobman wanted to work on other projects. ADATO was popular for sure, but sometimes you'd rather work on things your passionate about, and I don't fault Frob at all for that. More power to him! If you're interested in what he's working on right now, he has a comic called Urgency Agency. I URGE you to check it out! Haha...ha....uhm...here's the link:
https://tapastic.com/series/UrgencyAgency

As for Roll To Save? Well, unlike the artist who finished the Holiday Special arc. Our last artist and I parted on more amiable terms. The reason for this is because I'm a big fan of Tailsteak who draws his own comic Leftover Soup. We've been corresponding for a while now and apparently he was very interested in reviving my very much stalled comic! Which hopefully explains the new change in style and the strip "Style Switch". Such a style change also changed the amount I'm compensating for my super talented artist so the update schedule is going to be set at biweekly. Check out Tailsteak's own comic over at:

Anywho, huge thanks to everyone who's stuck with the comic and to new people just now discovering it. Thank you so much and stay tuned, more to come!

A Change in design

February 2nd, 2013, 5:14 am

Hey there guys! I know there wasn't much time between this and the last post but I noticed something when I uploaded the prologue pages for the comic. Apparently nobody could rate or drop a comment! Html code is beyond my comprehension so as much as I liked the prior design, I had to switch to another that had those features, after all I wanted to hear input on the series from all of you! So hopefully with that, enjoy!

News Flash!

February 2nd, 2013, 4:29 am

Well after lots of discussion with the artist on a couple of my closest friends, we've decided to release the entire prologue saga! That's right, it will all be released today for your viewing pleasure! We shall start releasing strips soon! Enjoy! =)

And So It Begins...

January 31st, 2013, 9:49 am

And with that, the comic has begun! These first couple of pages serve as an introduction to the series. A prologue if you will. It will more or less sum up with the comic is all about at the same time try to give you a feel for it. From here on out the comic is now on the air! ...er on the net! Gone live! Oh you know... it's up now! Hope you all enjoy! =3

Previews and Updates!

June 2nd, 2012, 2:04 am

Hey there folks! Sorry it's been a while! We are still DEFINITELY going through with this comic, let me assure you of that! At the moment my right hand woman is going through lots of RL stuff that demands her attention so the progress has been considerably slow. None the less we have been working on it whenever we could, making sure that the first few pages come out nicely since they serve as a proper introduction to the series. I had just posted another teaser picture to give you guys more of an idea of the style, while still unfinished, it's a lot more polished than the 'Coming Soon!' picture!

Anyhow, just wanted to update you few that have faved us and anyone else who is interested in our little project here. It's not dead, it's just gonna take a while! Peace and love guys!

~Jim
