What is Theory of Everything Comics?


This already feels like I’m writing a bio for some dating site. I’m not good at that because I’ve never gotten a date from those things (although I did get a bunch from myspace). Since my mind is drawing a blank right now, I’ll just cut and paste quotes from people who already did the work for me.


At Circle vs. Square (dot) com, Theory of Everything Comics “is humorous and compelling story telling.”


I can’t disagree with that. Although “compelling” is a better word describing an episode of Law & Order. I don’t watch that show much, mainly because it lacks robots.

Yeah, that show needs at least one robot.


A guy living in Russia, although I don’t believe he really lives there, thinks it’s “Not as good as the author probably thinks it is, if only because it's a little bit pulpy at times; but still like-able and decently done.”


The same could be said about Rosie O’Donnell.


A teenager who will come to your house and break open your front door demands that “this must be read by everyone.”


The same cannot be said about Rosie O’Donnell, but she’s not trying hard enough.

She should re-grow her mullet.


No matter what people say about this site, I guarantee that if you are looking for a run-of-the-mill web comic, you’ve come to the wrong place. My goal is to make you feel something that you don’t usually feel; something that you’re not even sure there’s a name for.


A lot of the stories that I thought were funny, people think are sad. A lot of the stories that I thought were serious, people think are funny. I’m not sure if this meant I was a failure or a success, but I decided to run with it. At this point, a sentence that has the phrase “human condition” would go here: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. And another sentence that would make you believe that this site is the next big thing to come to the medium of comics, but in a very classy and modest way, would go right here: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. And then I should write something both funny and poignant that sort of pulls this entire paragraph together in a high-school-creative-writing-class-sort-of-way, goes right about here: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .


Who is Elan’ Rodger Trinidad?


Now THIS feels like I’m writing a dating website bio.


Just to let you know, I’m ordering the lobster.




One quick note: The proper way to spell my name is "Elan' Rodger Trinidad"


Please take note of the silent apostrophe at the end of "Elan"


And the non-silent "d" in "Rodger"


The pronounciation of "Elan" is open to interpretation.


"Trinidad" however, is pronounced just like the island nation.


Yes. I know. There really isn't anything simple about me.






I’m this “artist” who always felt that it was his calling to draw and write comics. I've worked in commercials, graphic design and animation. My claim-to-fame as a graphic designer is the logo of The Ashlee Simpson Show (please don't laugh, besides, MTV gave the studio a great gift basket). Now I work for an Emmy Award winning animated sit-com as an animator (it kicks my ass sometimes, doesn't give me enough time to work on my comics, but I'm learning a lot around very talented and good people). I also work with these weird puppet men for fun and occassional profit and I'm also a part-time ninja with this band.


Anyway, the sort of comics that I want to make right now, well, I’m not so sure that the average weekly comic book junky would want to read. They’re actually comics that people who don’t read comics would probably like. This, of course, ruins my business model and proves how incompetent and impractical art school graduates really are. So I’m doing a service to mankind and putting these comics out on the inter-web. At this time, it would be appropriate to insert a different funny-yet-poignant-sentence because this is a really good humorous device, I’m patting myself on the back for creating it and I’m running it to the ground—goes here: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . All other details about me, you can piece together on my blog.
