Web

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.

Return of the Shoulder Angels (Comic)

Shinny

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!
