Welcome to Thumpculture, a martial arts rom-com slice of life soap opera webcomic by Neill Cameron. New pages are posted every Friday... usually. Use the buttons above to read through the backlog of previous pages.
Site and contents ©2008 by Neill Cameron. See more work by Neill at www.neillcameron.com
Get in touch - comments and feedback are always welcome, as are offers from publishers to pay me big bags of money to draw Thumpculture all day: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you enjoy Thumpculture and would like to help it continue, you might like to consider making a dontation using Paypal:
This is of course completely voluntary and optional, but would be hugely, hugely appreciated. Not only do I not get paid to do Thumpculture, but between the hosting costs and the amount of time it takes when I could be doing paid work instead, it actually costs me quite a lot of money.
Any and all contributions however big or small will be enormously gratefully received - people who I deem to be particularly generous (so, pretty much *anyone*) will receive a free sketch - just put a note in the 'optional notes' field saying which character / what you'd like a sketch of!
If you like Thumpculture but not enough to actually part with any cash, you can still show your support! Why not click the 'vote' button to the left to help make me rich and famous, or something. Vote regularly to see pretty art, changed on a semi-regular basis.
Sign up to receive all the news about Thumpculture! E-mail addresses will be kept entirely confidential and all you will receive will be the occasional e-mail from me, Neill, telling you exciting cool news and stuff.
Here are some webcomics that I like. There would be more, but I am quite ignorant.
Thumpculture is hosted by the wonderful Electric Studio: your one-stop shop for all your hosting and web-designy needs.

I've just updated www.neillcameron.com with, amongst other things, the unlettered versions of some recent Thumpculture pages, so if you'd like to see the art in its glorious virginal state without all that stupid sweary blether all over it, go have a look.

...so I spent so long over the last couple weeks making stuff for the shop, I don't have a new page for you this week. My bad!

If you look up at the top of the page you will notice a banner ad for the brand-spanking-new Thumpculture Shop, where stylish and fashion-conscious readers can choose from a wide range of awfully damn stylish T-shirts, Hoodies, Mugs and suchlike. Enhance your life with its All-Enriching Wonderfulness. Do So Right Now.

Happy New Year, lovely readers! Amongst my many resolutions for the year are to finally get around to a bunch of long-put-off updating of the Thumpculture site, including setting up a shop so you can buy t-shirts and stuff, and forums so you can all hang out and talk about how great your new t-shirts are. That sort of thing. Keep your eyes peeled -- hopefully one of these days - between the new baby, the full-time comics gig and managing a page a week of Thumpculture - I will actually get a free minute to set some of this stuff up. Until then - well, just enjoy the comic, really. Isn't it pretty? And if you have any ideas as to what you'd like to see on a t-shirt / how the hell one goes about setting up a forum anyway - please, by all means get in touch.

Happy Christmas, everyone! Hope you are all enjoying Thumpculture: Stage Two, which as I forgot to mention here, began a couple of weeks ago. But then you know that by now.
Between Christmas-related faff and new-baby- related faff, I am probably going to give myself a few days off over the festive period to just stare at the wall and dribble, so there might not be an update next week. But hell, like anyone'd be around to read it anyway! You'll all be off on holiday, drinking with supermodels and water-skiing in Monaco. I know my readers.
Anyway, have an awesome one, and see you back here in the new year!

What's next? Why, Thumpculture: Stage Two, of course - honestly, I would have thought that was kind of obvious. Our EXCITING if somewhat RUDE second story kicks off asap, but first I've got some exciting special eye candy type things to post over the next couple of weeks. Again I say, tell your friends!
...and while I'm here: re-reading the 'Jeremy Kyle' lines in today's page reminds me that I should offer a huge and public Thank You to my little brother James, who helped kick the script for Stage One into shape - updating, revising and adding extra funniness. (The aforementioned lines were a Jerry Springer reference when I first wrote the script, which should tell you something about how long it has taken to get from idea to execution). Anyway, huge thanks to James - a delightful chap, a hugely talented novelist and the only man I know cool enough to name his first-born son after Lex Luthor. Kudos!

Hello! How have you been? I won't even attempt to explain or apologise for the ludicrously long break in transmission. Suffice to say, it's been a bit of a year. Anyway, back now! Coming soon: all sorts of exciting new stuff that I won't start talking up just yet. But trust me, it's going to be all kinds of awesome. For now, just make do with the remaining few pages of Thumpculture: Stage One, to be delievered on a steady weekly basis over the next few weeks...
