2phast was a member on the Halo Babies website. He became well known for his incredible Halo artwork done within the confines of Microsoft Paint, and as he continued to draw and post on the HBNet forums, he continued to improve as an artist. Eventually, after coming up with a quirky set of characters, he created a comic strip called "Larry the Marine". There were several fan-comics that received regular updates on the Halo Babies forum as well. [/url LarrytheMarine.net was born as it became an official affiliated HBNet website. 2phast released these strips on a regular basis for a short while starting on January 1st, 2008. He only completed 33 of them before life events took away his time. The final strip was posted on September 5th, 2008. He hasn't updated the comic since then, but it the entire series has remained online.
