Game Galaxy (Part 9)
Jordan | December 30, 2011
The Resolution Solution… and other horrible names for a band.
Well, this episode is both the last of the year and the last in the Game Galaxy Arc. 2011 has been crazy; we launched on February 21st and since then in our 97 episodes we have fought Chuck Liddell, “dealt with” Casey Anthony, joined the search for Osama Bin Laden, led an Army of children into pretend Battle, shot Voldermort, Became “One With The Force”, saved the World from God’s Wraith toward Social Networking and Invented The Single Greatest Sport In The History of Mankind. So yeah, we’ve kept busy 🙂
But sadly, we soon may be coming to the end of Imagine Industries. You see, our Artist Sale and his wife are expecting a baby very soon (btw, we couldn’t be happier for them) and he’ll be forced to get a full-time job. Well, the long and short of it is Sale can’t keep doing II with a full-time job and a baby to take care of so we are at a dilemma. Josh and I don’t have the money to pay for an Artist (certainly not the caliber of Sale) and Sale can’t afford to continue with us. We basically need a miracle. To be clear, we are NOT asking for money, nor would we except it (unless one of our fans is a multimillionaire that doesn’t need the money) but we DO want to continue. Although, it would literally take us suddenly getting 100,000 new readers to afford to keep Sale.
We will all, Sale included, be racking our brains to find ways to continue Imagine Industries (in any form we can do it in) but so far, we have no definitive plans once Sale leaves.
As much as I never thought I would, or wanted to say this, I am now accepting applications for new Artist for Imagine Industries. It’s a great job (assuming you don’t need a paycheck) and I guarantee amazing benefits (by benefits, I mean working with me and Josh on crafting epic adventures staring psychotic yet surprisingly endearing characters). If you or someone you know is a talented Artist who’d like to work with us, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a sample of some of your work.
It’s Not Over Til It’s Over
This is NOTthe last episode of Imagine Industries. We have a new comic on Monday (like always) and we intend to continue as long as Sale can afford to. We have no intention of missing comic dates if we can help it and believe me, we have a TON of content planned out if we do get a new Artist or if before said miracle does take place. Also, we will be paying to keep the site up for a while after the comic ends, if it does indeed end.
I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has been reading us this year. You guys have given our silly comic a purpose, making you laugh and we never want to let you down.
Keep reading, tell your friends and we hope to see you back here on Monday for the next (but not last) new episode.
I leave you now with an inspirational quote from Captain Malcolm Reynolds:
You know what the first rule of flying is? Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as a turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ before she keels. Makes her a home.
Well, it’s true, The Storm’s getting worse. But, We’ll pass through it soon enough.

Happy New Years Imagine Industries!
The end of this year has come with many challenges, one being that we are not sure the life pulse of our comic at the moment. But I will say that in 2011 we launched a web comic that I feel, can compete with the best of them out there. I am blessed to be ending this year with the best co-creators ever, an amazing comic and the best fans in the world. You guys have made 2011 something I can talk about for the rest of my life, and mostly in a good way! 🙂
Happy New Years everyone. I hope II has given you as much love as we have gotten from all of you.
