BOOM! That’s the end of the first major storyline of the new HE comics. It was fun to make, and I hope it was fun to read.
I have a new store NEW STORE new store NEW STORE!!!
UPDATE ON THE FANCY DIGITAL SKETCH DRIVE: If you are still waiting on your Fancy Digital Sketch, I am SUPER BACKLOGGED on these. I am very sorry it’s taking so long. Doing 50+ original pieces of finished art always sounds easy, until you agree to do it and take money for it. I am working through them, but if you need yours urgently, feel free to let me know via email.
I’m sad to see this storyline wrapped up, it’s been so great. BUT it makes me excited to see what’s next. More adorable kiddo-ness, I trust.All of the current characters are being killed off in my crossover event with DC.
Sagebrush · 88 weeks agoAfter you do that, can we get a fan petition together to bring them back?As long as you don’t pull a Willis and start making me loathe the characters I once loved and love the characters I once loathedNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!! Damn you, DiDio! Even if it’s not his idea, it’s still fun to blame him for the worst story decisions in DC comics.
So what’s the estimate for them coming back from the dead?Thank the WhiteGuardian.
That “Joel” character doesnt even have any superpowers. And his origin story: completely unbelievable.
Doesn’t work? draws for a living?
At least give him an interesting death:
( Something with Darkseid , make him a Black Lantern ? ) .
Then, after he’s resurrected the 2 or 3 requisite times, he can finally do something worthwhile with his comic life— Like Join Batman Inc so he can at least fight like a ( Joss Wedon character ) girl.
Anna77 · 88 weeks agoI just finished reading through your archives tonight and gotta say the most recent ones have been my favorites by far. Pop culture stuff was funny but a lot of times it just didn’t hold up well. This newer stuff is timeless.I really appreciate that, and totally agree about the lifespan of the pop culture comics. I hope I am creating something now that my kid will be able to read and understand when she’s older. I know she’s never going to get my Lost and BSG jokes.Werewolves aren’t extinct, they’re just hiding.Yes, they’re hiding inside the hollow moon, thus the phrase ‘full moon’, or ‘moon full of werewolves’. How is this not obvious?
Matt · 88 weeks agoI propose that werewolves be the first extinct species we revive through cloning.
Bruceski · 88 weeks agoI’m pretty sure the award for that will go to a pokemon.So awesome and beautiful and funny and inspiring. Well done and keep up the good work Joel.My favorite of the new stuff… I like the kid as, well, she is the best. I have 5 yo twin boys and when she speaks I realize they are pretty normal after all, even with me as their Dad 🙂
Thanks Joel!Loving the new direction of the comic! I agree with Anna. The pop culture stuff is awesome, but more storylines like this will only serve to strengthen those comics when you do them in the future. Thanks for taking a risk (again!), and please keep it up!
Conrado · 88 weeks agoJoel, I’ve been reading the comic since forever (I know, I know… It’s just a figure of speech…). I like the change, the evolution you’ve had in your drawing style, the inclusion of storylines, the shift to a new frame of reference that includes the people you care about the most and, above all, the way you risked everything to go for your dream. Your work resonates with me.
You get my outmost respect!!
Thanks for the smiles!!
HikingViking · 88 weeks agoA transdimensional sentient murder house realtor? I think Trent Reznor uses one of those when he home shops. Look at that, your daughter’s backup plan already has a potential client!
Stephen · 88 weeks agoOne of these days I am going to go a con at which you have a booth, and I will give you money a possibly small bottles of booze so you can draw me things. On this day I shall rejoice, for your comic brings me much merriment. Therefore, I have a question for you: What is the nearest con (that you attend) to south Mississippi? For verily, gas is pricey and monies are tight.I have to say as a long time reader, I haven’t noticed any difference at all—Other than the introduction of 3 female characters. For all the talk of revolution, I think this lack of change is a good thing.
Or maybe the plan is to keep adding 3 new female characters a week, until you finally add a Nikki Pixel with Amazonian Geek powers, battling against with Wil Wheaton with StarTREK Stu powers, to fight for the soul Of the “Fancy”.
JoJo · 88 weeks agoAm i the only one that keeps asking himself why (or how..) comic-Joel is so prepared on the field of lapinthropes? I mean, he didn’t even flinch, or took time to ponder the answer. he just went BAM! here’s what you have to do. Something is amiss here, i tell you…
Sleeper agents for wererabbits? Secretly a wererabbit himself? Did his past as a wolf clan got cancelled in the reboot? Also, ponies.This is beautiful, touching, and also rather adorable. Not to mention that it’s a fairly accurate description of what us artists do every day.
Dono · 53 weeks agoI had to do it. Nice ETSY spot y’all have. So, I got the mushroom earrings and they had this cute * to read.
These earrings feature mushrooms which will make you grow bigger or give you extra life!* The mushrooms from Super Mario Bros. look super cute mismatched, but are also available as matching sets. Happy playing!
*Earrings will not actually cause owner to grow or extend owner’s life.” <see Hehe
