Last week on Shinny, Chad brought Shinny! to an arcade to try to make up for ruining the Caps game.
And now: the conclusion.
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.
We took a break for a few weeks for obvious (sad Caps) and not-so-obvious (Rachel graduated!) reasons, but we’re back with fresh Shinny, and it could not be more appropriate.
If you recall last time, Shinny’s boyfriend violated The Code. Now, much like the broader Caps fandom, Shinny has to deal with the aftermath. On the bright side, the Shoulder Angels are back!
Our hero chosen to bring her dopey boyfriend to the Caps game instead of her father. Now, we learn how Shinny, an avowed superfan, prepares for a big game — just like tonight’s bout with the Jets. There are rituals, superstitions, and traditions that must be honored. Everything must be just right or else it will surely spell disaster for the team.
