So here’s the skinny.

Blast Furnace is an exercise in comical sweetness from Ryan Browne (me) that embraces the fun of improv comic making. It is created a page at a time, with an hour spent on each page (or there abouts), with little to no preplanning. The plan is to update the web-comic every Monday through Friday for an entire year, no breaks and no delays. It might be the worst idea I’ve ever had, or maybe the best… only time will tell.

In the meantime, I invite you to check out my other web-comic, God Hates Astronauts and check out my portfolio site at

Thanks everyone for your support and for reading this terribly bad idea of an endurance exercise. This is gonna rule!
