Introduction

Welcome to the King of Slackers.com! You might be wondering what King Of Slackers is? Well I guess so, otherwise you wouldn’t have gone to this intro-page.

Basically, The King of Slackers is a webcomic based loosely on my own life. The comic started out as a strictly Swedish affair called “The Blogg”.  But for instance if I watch the Dark Knight on DVD, then I’ll make a comic about Batman.

So the comic can be about everything from my everyday life, to video games to movies to… Boobies :)

So who are these people in the comic? Well there’s…

Tobias “Tobey” Svalås – Well. That’s me. A twenty-something year old guy working as a internet-support-guy over the phone. And when I am not slaving over the phone, I usually play video games, watch movies or draw.

First Appeared in January 21st, 2006: “Reklam”

Samantha “Sam” – My girlfriend (Yes, she actually exists ;))  lives in Australia and works as a teacher. She is also a rocker and loves chocolate :)

Then there’s Cthulhu. Ever heard of him? Basically he is an all-knowing elder god who brings madness and chaos around him. What many didn’t know is that he isn’t as scary as many believe he is. Anyway. He is crashing at my place. His favourite game is Hello Kitty Online.

Zeki is Sam’s ferret and he is quite a punk. But other than that not much is known about him, not even his age. It seems that he has some history with Cthulhu.

Rutger is a Zombie. But not just any Zombie. He is none other than the chairman of the Zombie Political Party, and used to be quite a skilled professor. Now, what he does in my apartment, I have no idea.

Big Daddy from the Bioshock games. Well, he kind of comes and goes. Haven’t seen alot of him recently since he got a huge gig with the Bioshock 2 game. His hobbies on the other hand mostly involve storming in and drilling me to death.

Ebbe is one of my best friends and a fellow slacker/video game player/ illustrator that I’ve known for about 10 years now. Now Ebbe has started his own webcomic called “Games And Boobs“, which you can find right here. (After you’ve read my comics ofcourse 😉

Karin is also one of my best friends and is a few years younger than me. She is a gamer chick and a Sony fan girl. When she doesn’t play video games, she enjoys mathematics and coding different stuff.

First appeared in November 11th, 2007: “Minstakvadratroten from outer space!”

Josh McFancypants doesn’t just read the news. He IS the news… Okay, he just reads the news. But he still has an awesome California  tan, and won’t back down from the truth, how ugly it may be.

First appeared in June 4th, 2009: “LeChuck for president”

Basically, The King of Slackers is a webcomic based loosely on my own life. The comic started out as a strictly Swedish affair called “The Blogg”, based on my life. But as time passed I realised my own life getting more and more boring, and with that the comic got more and more loosely based on my life. But there is almost always a shred of my life in there. So if I watch the Dark Knight on DVD for instance, then I’ll make a comic about Batman.

So the comic can be about everything from my everyday life, to videogames to movies to… Boobies :)
