2022 Major Overhaul

As of this writing (June first, 2022) the “Ralf the Destroyer” website has undergone a complete revision. First and most importantly the site’s hosting has been moved to InMotion which prides itself in repelling spam and malware (no going cheap this time) I’m making the investment for a safe viewing experience. While all of the old posts were migrated over, the site itself was a clean rebuild using the Toocheke theme which offers the infinite scroll archive on the landing page. Also, every single strip has been refinished to provide a warmer, more nostalgic, reading.

Ralf on Patreon


I have set up a Patreon page with the higher goal of updating the comic on a daily schedule. Patreon lets fans support their favorite creators by becoming patrons. Unlike other fundraising services, which raise for a single big event, Patreon is for creators who create a stream of smaller works, like webcomics.

Must Read for 2014

Although I announced this on our Facebook page, Ralf the Destroyer made into the “Best Webcomics to Follow in 2014” list over at the website “The 100 Best Graphic Novels“. This site’s goal is to help old and new graphic novel fans to find something to new to read. Currently,  listing the top 100 graphic novels of all time as a good starting point. There are also weekly reviews and recommendations based on what the author reading at the time.

Live Interview w/ Tom Racine

If you missed it, here’s an interview I did with Tom Racine during an all day live broadcast marathon for the Tall Tale Radio, Indiegogo fundraising campaign. Tom was a very lively and enthusiastic host and made the whole experience quite enjoyable.

Interviews Two

Unexpectedly, Ralf the Destroyer is getting some press on two fronts. I was contacted by Todd McElmurry, who is a contributor for Webcomic Alliance, letting me know he had been reading Ralf the Destroyer and wanted to choose it for his “Pick of the Month“. The article is up now on the Webcomic Alliance website and is a very well written and entertaining summary!


The second interview has been in the chute for a while. Kurt Sasso of TGT Media had originally had me scheduled to do an interview with him on the TGT Media podcast in November but moved it up to September 1st! Kurt is a generous host and I very much appreciated the opportunity to join him on his show and talk about Ralf!

This was my first audio interview, so of course there were some technical issues and I sounded like I’d been drinking Mountain Dew by the pint with Cappuccino chasers, but Kurt was great about it and I would not hesitate to be a part of the show again. The Ralf the Destroyer podcast (#269) is available on the TGT site and on iTunes.

Just Eat It…

Seeing as I’m taking a brief timeout to finish a job, Deb Wolf has leaped into action. Deb is a fan on Facebook and and regaled us with links, in a comment discussion here on the site, to her rendition of the falling whale that so often graces many museums. Well, timely as usual, Deb had some gags about Ralf eating that were burning a hole in her pocket.

Forward by Chris Yambar

I was able to attend the Pittsburgh Comic Con and found myself making a brief appearance on “The Chris Yambar Show”. Chris is the creator of “Mr.Beat” and the writer of numerous comics including “The Simpsons” comics.

Site Update

While I’m sure everyone would prefer a comic update, the Ralf the Destroyer Site has been long over due for its own update. Many have been quick (but polite) to point out the navigation issues that were affecting the reading experience. I have managed to update the site to a newer version of Comicpress and that seems to have resolved the navigation problems as far as I can tell.

Ralf’s TV Influence

I would like to thank Deb Wolfe for sending me this great fan strip of Ralf the Destroyer. Deb is a fan on Facebook and I had the pleasure of chatting with her there. She is also working on a strip of her own called “The Frenetic Adventures of Fred Barlowe” over at Comic Genesis. I think she did a great job and I do enjoy the gag having been a fan of all the Spielberg TV animation from the 90s.

Thanks Deb!

For Those in Deutschland

For all those German speaking readers out there (Germany ranks forth in visits according to Google Analytics) Ralf the Destroyer is being translated into your native tongue. So far the comic network site “Streifenhoernchen” is only in its Beta format and there are only a few “Ralf” strips up but the translator did a great job finding a font and justifying it to fit in the word balloons.

Comic Booked

Ralf the Destroyer got a nice mention over at the Comic Booked website for their “Webcomics Wednesdays”. Ralf got a mention in the “aliens category and listed second behind “Zorphbert and Fred” by Dawn Griffin who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Wizard Philadelphia Comic Con this summer. Feel free to stop by the Comic Booked site and comment!

Ralf at Baltimore

Ralf the Destroyer will be at Baltimore this year! After attending last year, on the advice of many who encouraged it, we will be returning to what looks like an even bigger show this year.

If you are going to be in the Baltimore vicinity on August 20th-21st, be sure to stop by the Ralf the Destroyer booth! We’ll have mini comics, softcover books, sketch cards, original art and will be taking commissions. Hope we see you there!

Guesting at Wizard Philadelphia

The Wizard con in Philadelphia is fast approaching and I am a guest! I will be attending the Philadelphia Comic Con June 17-18-19, 2011 Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. I am particularly jazzed since they have quite the guest list there, which now includes me too! Now not only is that cool but Wizard has also invited me to be a guest at the New England Comic Con running later this year in September (17-18, 2011 Saturday and Sunday) at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston MA.

If any readers are attending these conventions please be sure to stop by and say hello! I will have original art on display and for sale along with the new book and mini comic. Not only that, but it’s just cool to meet the people who enjoy making Ralf the Destroyer a part of their week. Hope I see you there!

( and a special thanks to Stephen Shamus for inviting me 😀 )

Spotlight On Ralf the Destroyer

Today Ralf the Destroyer is being featured on the So Entertain Me Network website. The Spotlight on Comics article is featured on their main page for comics.

The highly flattering article is certainly appreciated and if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself heading back there again. The So Entertain Me site focuses on Sci-Fi, Gaming and Comics… what’s not to like?

Also, their site has been very supportive of Ralf the Destroyer (by sponsoring Ralf with ad space etc) so be sure to show them some love and leave some comments!

Ralf on Indy Planet


I have just been informed by Ka-Blam that the 164pg soft cover book “Ralf the Destroyer – Am I There Yet?” is now available on Indy Planet and Comics Monkey!

This is good news for those of you who enjoy reading from real paperback books now and then, just click on the cover image to the left and you will be able to order a copy even if you can not make it to one of the Con’s we’ll be attending this year. If you happen to be a “brick and mortar” comics shop, good news for you as well. The “Am I There Yet” collection is available on Comics Monkey which caters to comic book shops.

A digital version is not yet available, but I will be working on that as I attempt to spruce up my shop page. I will (of course) still be making these print versions and the mini comic available at cons. So be sure to stop by and say hello if I’m attending at one in your area!

Pittsburgh Comic Con

Next weekend is the Pittsburgh Comic Con and for me it’s the first show of the year! This will be the launch of the Ralf the Destroyer booth 2.0. We’ll be sporting a new banner, table layout, soft cover books, manga sized comic books, original comic strip art and possibly some sketch cards.

Show Dates & Times
April 15, 16 & 17, 2011
Fri 1:00pm – 7:00pm
Sat 10:00am – 6:00pm

If you plan on attending, be sure to stop by and say “hello”. We will be set up in the small press area at booth SO45. Hope we see you there!

Don’t Pick the Flowers

I was recently contacted by David Hurley about doing an interview about Ralf the Destroyer for the blog section of his webcomic site, “Don’t Pick the Flowers”. I was (of course) quite happy to do so and it turn out well.

He asked some good questions and the article looks great so be sure to swing on over to the “Don’t Pick the Flowers” blog and leave a comment!

Guest Appearances at Wizard!

Well, it’s official! I am a guest! I will be attending the Philadelphia Comic Con June 17-18-19, 2011 Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. I am particularly jazzed since they have quite the guest list there, which now includes me too! Now not only is that cool but Wizard has also invited me to be a guest at the New England Comic Con running September 17-18, 2011 Saturday and Sunday at the Hynes Convention Center (Boston).

If any readers are attending these conventions please be sure to stop by and say hello! I will have original art on display and for sale along with the new book and mini comic.

One Year of Ralf the Destroyer!

Today, November 16th 2010, marks the one year anniversary of continuously updated Ralf the Destroyer comic strips on this web site. To date that racks up 161 comic strips (mostly dailies and few Sundays). It’s not yet enough to publish a collection (which would be an awesome way to celebrate) but I think it’s a fine start.

Continue reading “One Year of Ralf the Destroyer!”

Year One Approaches

I was reminded by my wife the other day that the One Year Anniversary of Ralf the Destroyer is fast approaching. November 16th 2009 was the official first strip on this web site and has been continuously updating each week. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about it just yet, but I have just under two weeks to think of something.

I would also like to thank all the readers who have been following Ralf the Destroyer for this past year and all the new readers, who have started following Ralf’s adventures, and contributed to its growing audience.

Baltimore Comic Con

I just received my table confirmation at the Baltimore Comic Con. A quick trip over to the Con site (click image to go there) confirmed that I am indeed listed in Artist Alley, Woohoo! I’ll be displaying original strips, selling my first issue mini comic and generally promoting Ralf the Destroyer during the show, August 28th and 29th. So if you are planning on attending the Baltimore Comic Con, please come on over and visit me in Artist Alley!

UPDATE 2010-08-20: I just received my table assignment at Baltimore! If you are attending the Con you will find me at table #A28

Transcripts

I am beginning the process of transcribing all of the comics on the Ralf the Destroyer site. I’ve hear other web cartoonists using it to better catalog their collections but also saw something that implied that WordPress/Comicpress transcripts allow for language translation (which I find an intriguing prospect).

While it may take me a little time to work my way back through my archives I feel it’s a better now than later situation. If you have any thoughts or experience in using transcripts with-in Worpress/Comicpress, let me know what you think.

Fan Page on Facebook

I’ve had a personal profile of Facebook for a while now, but I’ve finally decided to set up a fan page for Ralf the Destroyer. I discovered a couple of RSS plug-ins and added them to both the Profile and Fan pages. If you have a Facebook account I invite you to add the Ralf the Destroyer Fan Page to it, just click on the badge in the left sidebar. Regular updates should occur.

ConnectiCon 2010, Postscript

Well, I got back from ConnectiCon and WOW! It was a great show with major Cos-play going on there. I’ve been to the New York Comic Con and this one actually had two to three times as many costumes in a much smaller convention (at the very least per density).

Continue reading “ConnectiCon 2010, Postscript”

ConnectiCon 2010

So I was aware of ConnectiCon a few years ago and thought, “Great! A local Comic Con!” I was then told that the main focus was on Manga and Anime and not to bother. Well, I do like doing things people tell me NOT to do, but I was busy looking for work and such at the time so I never got a chance. With the launch of Ralf the Destroyer I find myself looking into the idea of Comic Conventions once again.

100th Strip

Today marks the 100th strip of Ralf the Destroyer… Whew! To all the readers out there, thanks for making Ralf the Destroyer part of your personal funny pages. I hope that the future holds even more success for the strip so I can bring you even more content. Thank you all.

Sketch Maven Interview

Well, in addition to my Comics Buyers Guide write up I was asked by Sketch Maven to do an interview for their Artist Profile.

My favorite part (besides just being asked) was on their front page…

“Scott Lincoln, the cartoonist of one of the funniest webcomics, Ralf the Destroyer…”

I didn’t even have to pay them to say that!

CBG #1667 is Out!

I just spent my day on a whirlwind road trip to local comic book haunts to pick up the current (July) issue of Comics Buyer’s Guide #1667. Why do such a thing? Well, because this very web comic gleaned a write-up in Kris Manty’s column Alien Invaders from the Internet in this very issue!

Continue reading “CBG #1667 is Out!”

Comic Buyer’s Guide

It has been confirmed that my comic Ralf the Destroyer has a write-up in the Webcomics review section of the July (#1667) issue of Comic Buyers Guide (page 51).

I just recently received the PDF sample from columnist Kris Manty, which included the article “Alien Invaders on the Internet” introducing Ralf the Destroyer (as one of three webcomics) to the Comic Buyer’s Guide audience. Make sure you grab a copy when they’re out, I know I will! 😀
