Gastrological Phenomena

[Posting this a few days late for my friend Mikey Neumann’s birthday, but let’s all pretend it’s still Saturday. Shhh… nobody tell him.]

My friend Mikey and I lived this comic via Twitter a few days ago, so I decided to draw it up as a birthday present to him. You may know him as the writer of games like Borderlands and the Brothers In Arms Series. He also makes a web series on Escaptist called Anthony Saves The World. It’s got time travel and ninja swords. Check it out.

UPDATE [Tues April 19th]: You’re going to be hearing a LOT about this [from me] in the coming weeks, but I will start now by saying that a project I have had in the back of my mind for a couple of years has finally come to fruition. I have launched Sharksplode.com. It is NOT a replacement for The HijiNKS ENSUE Store. It IS a place that I can put up my more┬ániche, inside, “maybe not for everyone, but definitely for super geeks like us” shirt ideas. First I am adding all of my retired HE shirt designs, then I hope to add a new design or so each week until my “I should totally make a shirt that says…” file is empty. If it is a success I’ll keep it going.

The Doctor Is In T-Shirt

The best part about this news is that you can now order a “The Doctor Is In” shirt based off the “You’re The Last of The Time Lords, Charlie Brown” comic. It comes in blue or brown. So go check out the site, read the initial blog post and order you some wearable geekiness that will illicit awkward stares.

[Just a side note, I was up for 30+ hours straight working on the site, getting it working/ready to go, etc. so I am horribly behind on comics at the moment. I appreciate your patience.]

  1. Love this strip, and yeah, Food Network is definitely drifting away from doing shows about making food, and more about doing stupid things with food that already has been made.
    I miss the days of Alton Brown and Good Eats…
    It's now lots of samey competition shows, repeats of Rachel Ray, who is trying to get back on FN now that Oprah is no longer paying for her network TV slot, How to Make Food Look Crap with that gin-soaked harpie Sandra Lee, and 1001 Things to Do with Huge Amounts of "Budder" with Paula Dean.

  3. Man, fuck you guys. I was with you till you began talking crazy about God's most pure gift to man. The pinnacle of high eatery was achieved when someone took a stick of butter, crusted it with parmesan cheese, sauteed it in clarified butter, then served it on white rice and drizzled the while thing with a nice hollandaise sauce.

  4. Awesome! Every time I hear Adam Richman come up in conversation, it's always followed shortly with "That guy's going to die any minute." or "I can see him getting fatter during the episode!"

    BTW – I think there's a typo in panel 1.

    • But what a way to go! He's the President of the Clean Plate Club, man. We whisper tales of his conquests around the table.

  5. Just watch, in a desperate bid to attract new viewers, the food network will air "The Human Centipede". I mean, it technically qualifies as a food movie, right?

  6. My problem is that the FN calls "cooking" either covering something in cheese sauce, stuffing it with cheese/butter substance, or making the portion size large enough to feed a country. It's not cooking, it's now a sport.

  7. Didn't they start another network to air actual cooking show so FN could do more "reality" based programing? Anyway Diners drive-ins and dives might be my favorite show on TV, or Good Eats, or Ace of Cakes. Hmm, maybe thats how im gaining weight.

  8. Hey, "Foreigners Eat The Wrong Parts Of Animals" is one of my favorite shows! Well, not the one starring Zimmern, but the one starring Anthony Bourdain.

  10. Man With Craggy Face Yells At Food Makers is my favorite Food Network Show. He will kill you with just his hate!eyes.

    Also, Sharksplode is my favorite, you can be behind on comics all you like if it means more Sharksplode.

  11. If I want a reality cooking contest show, I'll turn to BBCAmerica and watch Gordon yell at people for an hour. If I want an actual cooking show, I'll turn to PBS and watch America's Test Kitchen or reruns of Old Drunk Lady…I mean Julia Child.
