This is my test site while I gear up for a new and improved Minions at Work 2.0 webcomic! I'm dumping our original single-panel-with-a-caption format that served us for over 300 cartoons, and going to full-page, multi-panel comics with word balloons! That means a more cinematic look, bigger scope, more character development, actual STORY, and serialized storylines that will span multiple comics, and sometimes multiple weeks!
We're very close to our full, 2.0 reboot (which will officially begin with a big, multi-week story, a lot of which is already "in the can," but right now we're in "soft open" mode, with a weekly schedule of at least one all-new comic page (usually on Wednesday or Thursday) and additional features, such as "remastered" classic comics, bonus panels, and even extra full-page comics, as time, resources, and scheduling allow.
Please enjoy, and we appreciate your feedback and comments (and your support on Patreon, if you feel so inclined, which for a dollar a month will get you most of our comics as soon as they're finished, rather than waiting for post day).
- Minion Master Steve
A mad scientist among mad scientists, Doctor Funkeystein spends most of his time in the lab, brewing up sinister chemicals and potions, experimenting with matter transmitters, reanimating dead tissue, and creating the occasional artificial life-form. Funkystein’s lab isn’t a popular assignment for Minions, not just because of the doctor’s infamous flatulence (some say his most evil experiments are carried out internally), but because he isn’t at all hesitant to experiment on his own Minions. The rule is, don’t eat or drink ANYTHING in Doctor Funkystein’s lab, unless you’d like to grow a new appendage or get turned into an anteater. Also, never pull his finger. Never. Pull. His. Finger.
His origins are a mystery, though we're hoping they're in a catchy title sequence somewhere with a Mike Post theme song! All we know is, he has a cape, a costume, a not-ready-for-comic-books costume, big hair, and a dazzling smile that looks good in TV Guide. We don't know much about his powers, except he's strong, he flies, he gets hit on the head from behind a lot, and yet always comes out on top by five minutes before the hour.
Leader of White Team, call him “Number One,” not “No One,” if you know what’s good for you (and if you think he might be listening). Experienced and unflappable, is wise in the ways of Minion. Unfortunately, he’s been blown off a few too many catwalks, and been hit in the head from behind just a few many times, so not everything he says is trustworthy, or even entirely sane. But when it comes to advice on staying alive as a minion, he’s the best you’ve got. He speaks with a mangled accent that’s one part Baltic-state and one part Valley Girl. It isn’t clear if this is the result of his country of origin, or simply repeated head-injuries. He claims it’s because he learned English by watching a pirated VHS tape of the movie “Clueless” over and over. Likes: Bringing his team back alive, pizza. Dislikes: Losing another Number 13, General Zed.
