Last week, we introduced Shinny’s best friend and teammate, Abbie: a 4′,11″ goaltender with a foul mouth. We rejoin her in a flashback: the first practice at her high school’s varsity team.
We’ve got the start of a new story this week, along with the debut of a NEW CHARACTER!
It’s our pleasure to introduce to you Abigail “Abbie” Schaefer, Shinny’s best pal and starting goalie for the Hoodlums hockey team. We visit Shinny and Abbie in the Hoodlum’s locker room after practice, where they find themselves talking about a subject that Caps fans know all too well…
This week, we start a new story about a beloved postseason hockey tradition.
After a year-and-a-half hiatus, Shinny is finally back! Peter and I (this is Rachel, hi!) are so excited to share the comic with you again.
Let’s– hypothetically– say you totally screwed up, felt awful about it, and wanted to make up for it in some way. Today we find Chad (Shinny’s boyfriend) in that exact situation. After totally ruining the Caps game for Shinny, Chad must figure out the best way to make up for his screw-ups.
In January of 2013, Peter and I debuted RMNB’s first (and only) webcomic: Shinny!, a story about a very superstitious 20-something Caps fan named Shinny, her grumpy “Old Time Hockey” dad, and clueless fair-weather fan boyfriend, whose name is Chad.
The comic went on hiatus a year and a half ago, leaving readers with a bit of a cliffhanger: Shinny upset at choosing to bring her boyfriend to a Caps game over her father, and Chad feeling guilty for ruining their trip to the game.
Now, Shinny! is back, and ready to once again bring you some new stories revolving around the world of the Caps, NHL, and the whole wide world of hockey.
