Ebay-Man: Two Scoops of Evil – Part 9

Coming to a theater near you, <a href=https://www.bitsmack.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Comics&file=index&action=comic&id=276>the storyline that wouldn’t die.</a> Seriously though the last part of the story will be Monday. I for one am ready to get back to single comics that make no sense rather than big multipart stories that make no sense. I haven’t touched a video game for about a week.

It’s kind of like Everquest without graphics. I’m hoping to get Tradewars to put up soon because it is also a cool game. Try it out and let me know if you have any problems.
