New Tenured Writer

I bring you some good and some bad news.  The bad news is that both Shaun and Brian have had to step aside from their Thought Balloons tenured writer positions.  Shaun has been with us for a while, having joined under the reign of Ryan Lindsay.  His contributions to the site have been both numerous and well written.   Brian was with us only a short time, but wrote some tight scripts.  We would like to wish both well in their future comic writing endeavours.  

And now for the good news - we have a NEW TENURED WRITER (obviously.  It's the title of this post).

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome former play at home writer ARBY MOAY to the team.  Arby has posted scripts in the WHY section for a while now, so when a position came up he was a natural to join.  But that's enough from me, I'll let Arby introduce himself:

"Arby Moay is an aspiring comic book writer and novelist from the Philippines who dreams of one day going into outerspace because it seems like it could be fun. Having recently graduated from university, he is still currently looking for a good computer job, and is being very picky about it.

He's been a lifelong fan of Batman and Robin, growing up in the 90's along with the animated series, watching it when nobody's around because the 'rents and nanny banned him of doing so (they think the show's too dark and violent). However, his relationship with actual comic books has only been for a little over a year, taking interest when he found out that his favorite novelist at the time, Neil Gaiman, wrote a Batman comic. About Bruce's funeral. Arby's been broke ever since.

You can find him on, and on He also has a webcomic called Sims University (currently in limbo) which uses the PC game Sims 3 as art, because he doesn't know anyone who isn't too busy to draw for him."

Don't forget that you too can play along at home (and maybe step up and become a tenured writer as well).  Simply post your one page script in the current week's Why? post comment section.  Feedback guaranteed.
