TG goes out with a bang.
As promised, I've now posted a major announcement about the next comic, including a firm premiere date. But we're not quite done with TG! Next week on this site I'll be posting a lot of cool extras, including background info and history, sketches, and even a new comic (using refurbished art) from a script I never got to use. Check back on update days!
Guys, it's been a blast. My pride in completing Treading Ground is tempered with the customary dose of sadness, but I'm super excited about my upcoming projects, and I think you will be too. TG may be ending, but we're beginning an even bigger adventure, and I hope you'll be right there with me.

AND POOP SHALL FOREVER BE FIRST!!!!!
I am pretty sure poop is #2. lol
NOOOOOO!!!!!!! I WAS FOOUURRTTHHH!! congratulations POOP
BTW, since when do any of these people own a minivan? 😉
It’s Rose’s Mom’s. And I’m sure you can think of a few reasons she’s not currently driving it.
No Name In Particular
That’s the biggest flippin’ minivan I’ve ever seen — it looks like the interior of a school bus in there.
Really? It was a minivan? I though that Beth and Steve were sitting in the boot of Nate’s car or something.
Also, loved the comic while it lasted. I red through the whole thing last night for a final hurrah. Look forward to the new comic.
Congrats on getting first. You shall live on forever as the one true first.
FOR THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!!!!!
so do we decapitate him now to gain his power?
remember, the native americans ATE their enemies to gain their power…
Well, actually, this’d make him The Last First, wouldn’t it?
yeah. I was really really hoping that the first comment on this would be “last”. oh well.
ALL HAIL,THE GREAT MIGHTY POO!
Well, of all the people here so far, only 2 of us were right 😛
First…for the Last time.
Hey it went out in a bang like I asked… Thank you.
Finger bang bang bang you every night.
Tell your brother Brian to learn how to write.
first on last!
Son of a Bitch, I missed! Great ending though!
Should it be? You don’t want your boss reading this over your shoulder, but all the action is safely tucked away in the third row seating.
Nick, give us another #106! Pwetty pleeze. Thank you for the awesome comic, enjoyed it helluva lot. I’m looking forward to seeing your next project!
Yay Third Row!!!!
Dunno what it is about the third, but that is always where the action is. I can’t tell you how many coitus’s I have interruptus’ed in a third row clinch back in Rocky Horror days…. Some people thing the back row of the theater is where all the pervs hang out (bless you) …but the third is where it’s at.
Thing? Freudian slip?
I am forever cursed with typo’s, and never go back to fix them. When I first started posting online, I was using a 300 baud acoustic coupler. it was so slow you had to wait for each individual character to show up on the screen before starting the next sequence. There simply was no going back to correct typos, and spellcheck had not yet been perfected. Old habits die hard
Nope. But it was close!
Anyway, sad to see this comic go.
Saddnessss, I am sorry to see it end. I love the story and will miss my MWF fix.
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. its such a happy ending.

it would be kind of epic if all comments on this last comic’s entry is “FIRST!
so nick, how we gonna get the news for the next project?
Check for a new blog post later today! I’ll also announce on Facebook and Twitter.
TG goes out with a fingerbang.
I am saddened, yet looking forward to seeing what is to come.
The ending really didn’t disappoint. Lemme say I’ve enjoyed this comic for a long time now, and it’s really upsetting to see it go. I came for the boobies, and stayed for the storyline 😀
Anyway, you’ve got another follower on twitter. I can’t wait to see what you create next. Good luck with whatever you do. 🙂
Thanks for everything Nick. I’m not embellishing when I say this was my favorite webcomic. I loved seeing the story and art progress into what it is today. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to during the week. This was a good run and I’ll be right there reading whatever comes next guaranteed.
Till then, stay golden.
I second that Minty! Thanks Nick for giving us something to look forward to during the week and the great stories.
It’s been a great ride Nick.
I look forward to your next project. *Gives you a thumbs up*
I was just going to tweet at you, but fuck it, I want more than 160 chars.
I discovered TG fairly late I believe, but since I loved it the moment I started reading.
Thanks for spending the time putting it all together. Awesome story, and such a damn fitting ending. A squillion IntarwebPointz for you.
Keep up the fine, can’t wait to see the new project when it happens.
*sniff* I love you man. And your fingerbangin’ sensibilities.
It’s been an amazing run. Thanks for sharing TG with us Nick! Eager to see what your next project’s gonna be.
Although I hate to see it go, you definitely ended it on the right note. Thanks for all your work over the years. This was only one of two web comics over the years that kept me checking for the latest strip every MWF at midnight
Lord of the dance
So wait, did Nate and Rose fuck yet? As that is what I got from the saying ‘that was fast, even for a quickie’
I’m guessing they’ve been fucking on a regular basis for some time now.
Mwahahahaha! It appears as though my chances at conquering the site were in vain. Now that it’s over, so too is my quest for comment-based domination. But no matter, for wherever goody-two-shoes race-based heroes are afoot, whenever trolling needs to take a surprisingly villianous turn, NotTheNegroGuy will be there!!!!! Wahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahaaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*descends into the mist, never to be heard from again*
Who was that pigmented man?
Two in the pink, two in your mom.
Oi! We’ll have none of that! the sign says EXIT ONLY!!!!
I’ll be watching, this was an important comic strip to me.
If you ever want any art trades or guests strips, I’ll be up for those too.
I want a gut-wrenching TG video montage, goddammit. http://youtu.be/CXYyXJa8rA4
Funny, I was just going through touching points in the story to the music of Journey.
I did a video montage to “Faithfully” for this year’s Prom!
WHERE IS THENEGROGUY?!?! His opinion on this must be enshrined FOREVER!
The only good thing here is the end of the first war.
The comic though, was great.
Will the Firsters rise again at the new comic site? Only time will tell…
Excellent run Nick. It’s sad to see TG end, but can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon. It was great seeing not only the story and characters progress, but also the evolution of artwork.
Congrats man. Good luck with the new project, and I’ll be watching for it for sure.
Are you currently doing commissions?
Commissions are something I’ve never really gotten into. Never say never, but right now 100% of my art time is spent either making comics or graphics for That SciFi Guy.
darn it 🙁 Well let me know if you do decide to do that.
