My New Project For 2016!!!

Joel Watson (cartoonist from the webcomics HijiNKS ENSUE and Sharksplode and writer/voice actor for Cyanide & Happiness) reviews the first trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice by drawing cartoons directly on the trailer! It’s part review, part reaction, part play by play telestration and all completely hilarious! 

I’m not 100% done with comics, but I am taking a much needed break from them to recharge and try out some new areas of creativity. If all goes well, this will be the beginning of a new chapter in my career and a new direction for my creative output.

Also, I’m working on bringing back the HijiNKS ENSUE Podcast (or rather, A PODCAST called HijiNKS ENSUE) in the next month. Lining up guests now. I decided just to do it, rather than wait for a Patreon goal. I hope you guys enjoy this new stuff. I had a lot of fun making this video.

OH! And PLEASE subscribe to the YouTube channel. There are several features that I need that aren’t unlocked until the channel has at least 100 subs.

I remade all of my prints to be borderless (edge to edge) 8×10.″

Many of my prints have updated designs and coloring as well! They’re being fulfilled by the same people that do my shirts, so now everything can ship from the same place and the prints are higher quality to boot!

And, for the first time ever, I’m selling a print that my daughter drew in my store. If you buy it SHE GETS THE MONEY:

Austin, TX Fancy Bastards: It’s Time To RAMPAGE!

webcomic rampage 2015

I’m going to be at Webcomic Rampage this year (October 17-18), hosted by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, TX. If you’ve never heard of this event, it’s a super chill in store signing/convention event where you can just hang out with awesome webcomic creators, watch them do live draw panels and purchase some of their books, prints, etc. Each night there’s a late-night adults-only panel where we all tell dirty stories and use all the curse words we know.

Come see me, my con-wife David, Randy, Lar and a host of others for two days of low pressure fun times surrounded by comics and gaming nonsense!

Totally New Patreon Goals and Rewards!

joel watson patreon freak out

I’ve just completely retooled my Patreon rewards and goals based on my new projects (namely Sharksplode), and what I’ve learned over the last year or so. I’ve taken stock of the things I said I wanted to do, then didn’t do (because I didn’t actually want to do them), and the things I’ve always wanted to do but never had the proper motivation for doing (like recording and releasing music). Hopefully the experience I’ve gained and the regret I feel for not reaching every goal I set for myself with Patreon originally will keep me motivated and honest.

This might not seem like great news to HijiNKS ENSUE fans. I clearly left out any HE-based rewards in the new Patreon setup, because I honestly don’t know when I’m going to be able to update HE again, or how often. My heart and brain are currently more interested in Sharksplode and I don’t want to force my self to make comics that I’m going to ultimately be disappointed with just because I feel obligated to. I will return to HE and I will finish it the way I want to. That’s the most honest explanation I have for you right now.

There’s a ton of new stuff to be excited about and chances are (if you’re already a Patron) I owe you some goodies, so please read all the rewards ( and msg me via Patreon if you would like to claim your custom comic print file, mobile desktop or digital commission.

Every Patron can download a bunch of convention panel recordings here:

If you’ve already pledged $5 or more and haven’t downloaded your ebooks, they are all here:

I’m super excited about doing Patron-Only Sharksplode comics, recording a cover song EP, doing a live 90s Alt Rock Challenge concert, and releasing THE LOST HIJINKS ENSUE PODCAST (featuring Kris Wilson of Cyanide & Happiness).
