So you're new to the comic eh? Welcome to the neighborhood and I hope you enjoy your stay. If you want generic info about the site, check out the About section for the site. This section will guide you in your exploration of the comic and figuring out where to get started. Further down is a list of major characters in the comic as well as a breakdown of the major storylines that we've done so far.
Hover Text - Hey newbies, there's hover text for all of the comics. So yeah, make sure you move your mouse over the comics for extra comments. Some of them are even funny!
The Beginning: Comic #1 - You can't really go wrong with starting at the beginning. I mean, it's the first so the most logical place to start!
Black and White: Comic #53 - I think comic 53 is where I started to hit a nice stride in the style of humor of the comic and in my choice of art. This is also right after the shift from full color to black and white for the comic. This is a good place to start if you want more of the recent style of humor and art that is present in the comic.
Dr. Science: Comic #76 - The first ever comic with Dr. Science! If you don't want to miss the introduction of the first recurring character of FOCS since the introduction of the main cast, then click this link.
Five O'clock Shadow focuses mostly on one-shot comics, but we do have some longer stories involving the main cast. So check them out at the links below and enjoy!
New Friends - While not the first introduction of any of the main cast of characters, this is the first plot line involving all of them. This storyline involves a simple trip to a diner turned upsidedown. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8
