Grace Crowley's The Bare Pit lives (sorta)!
« on: July 22, 2016, 05:36:51 am »
It's been some time since Grace (formerly Stephen) Crowley's comic The Bare Pit went offline (Wikipedia says 2013, but didn't cite that). The Bare Pit had some pretty good comics, and it was a shame to see them disappear and have little chance of returning (http://www.loxieandzoot.com/).  I've futilely been searching for the comics, and I found them!!

The French-language site Les Amis Naturistes has all of the comics there in French, including The Bare Pit.  All we need now are some French/English dual-speakers and a liberal use of reverso.net.

The original comic starts here.  Towards the lower left is a chapter selection for all the shows.

Wikipedia is wrong the Bare Pit site only went offline last year but the last Bare Pit was made in sometime in 2011. Since the Loxie and Zoot was hosted by another provider it was still up and I was able to make a comment asking what had happened and she said the same thing as she put up on the new Loxie and Zoot site. Just checked my bookmarks the old Loxie and Zoot site is still going only has Korla Bares and the Loxie and Zoot comics http://loxieandzoot.comicgenesis.com/archive.html

Good to know Grace is still thinking of old naturist fan base by putting up the place holder site

It's great to hear that his comic hasn't completely vanished from the Web. Thanks for sharing

Pardon? I do not quite understand what you are saying here. "put up a placeholder site"? "New Loxie & Zoot site"? All I see is the same old page from the TBP days, surviving due to the fact that it is not hosted on the one site that went belly-up.

But great find. Thanks, JP. Now we just need either a reverse translation or the original files. Maybe they still have them; they had to download them to make the edits, after all.
Please send me a message on the forum before contacting me over IM. For best results, also mention what you want to talk about, I am not much of a smalltalker.

The new site is this one http://www.loxieandzoot.com/ it's only a few pages going by what she said there she may not be aware the old Loxie and Zoot site is still going. I will admit she given it the same look but it looks to be separate from the keenspace site.

edit: I think just confused myself in regards to the use of loxieandzoot.com in the past so I guess the only change is Grace provided an update and I think moving the purchase page since the links to those in Loxie and Zoot achieve link to stripamatic the site that hosted The Bare Pit and other comics that are no longer online.

Looks the way back machine has captured most if not all of The Bare Pit

enjoy

Also the current site was only captured on the 10th of July this year

http://web.archive.org/web/20160710093743/http://www.loxieandzoot.com/

Until 8 March 2016 it looked this

http://web.archive.org/web/20160710093743/http://www.loxieandzoot.com/

Turns out I wasn't going crazy

Decided to look for the Naturist Living Show episode on the Bare Pit obviously she was still Stephan then and of course thebarepit.com now goes to the same site as loxieandzoot.com

http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/naturist-living-show/e/naturist-cartoons-20772577

Also emailed Grace about the Loxie and Zoot archive and got this

Hi Daniel
Thanks for your email. Yes, still on Keenspace but not for much longer. I'm looking into ways to make all the material available again, but probably only in preview mode with a published version available for purchase.
Cheers

Grace
   

Edit: The Korla Bares is currently being sold at the Bare Boutique(Bare Oaks shop) for $9.95 rather than $19.95
