Events Both Contemporary and Relevant

“Winter Is Coming” shirts are now IN THE STORE!!! [based on this comic]



In other, more shocking news, there is still a thing called Napster. This comic was unwittingly co-written/co-tweeted by Josh A. Cagan, a writer who hails from Satan’s very bosom, L.A. We were introduced by Wil Wheaton at w00tstock SDCC this year and our twitter accounts have been inextricably linked ever since. I give you a strong “FOLLOW” recommendation on the grounds that he is consistently hilarious.

COMMENTERS: Please construct your own headline + tagline combo of equal contemporary relevance to “Rhapsody buys Napter. Entire Internet abuzz with¬†indifference, yawns.” I wonder what Pets.com is up to these days. Also, feel free to share stories of using now obsolete services (online or otherwise).

GUEST WEEK AND NYCC!!!
GUYS! I am going to be at New York Comic-Con with Blind Ferret next weekend ¬†(10-14 to 10-16). I will have books 1 and 2, T-Shirts (including the new “Winter Is Coming” shirt and maybe a debut of another new shirt), stickers, sketches and prints. I am going to be staying in Brooklyn so I hope to hit up the Doctor Who themed bar, The Way Station. Maybe we can do a bit of an informal Fancy Bastard Meetup there.

While I am gone, I will be running a few guest comics created just for you by several of my webcomicing cohorts (Paul Southworth, Sam Logan, Randy Milholland and Alina Pete). Based on what I’ve seen so far, this will be the most epic HE guest week ever.

  4. I sure hope Rhapster doesn't get hit by that "Y2K Bug" I heard about. (6_6)

    Man… if Tripod, AngelFire, And Geocities hear about this and join forces to oppose Napsody, there might be no stopping them.

  5. News stages Dog Pile, Excite, and Lycos are forming a new search engine called "Dogexcitelyc", hoping for a higher number of inadvertent redirects to their site.

    You mean I can't make emotional comments about your characters/wear them as skin suits? You see what I did there? #fullcircle

  9. If you come to the Way Station on Saturday night, there'll be a birthday party for a bar regular, where yours truly will be making the crashed TARDIS cake from Matt Smith's first episode.

    I'd do more, but that would require a greater knowledge of both the Marvel and DC universes. (universi?)
