Oh The Places

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!!!

The new HE store is live at explosm! There are new signed prints and posters (previously only available at conventions), and for the first time I’m offering signed books! More info HERE.

I will be at New York Comic Con  this weekend (10/10 – 10/13) with Cyanide and Happiness at booth 2247! More info HERE.

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.

Have you seen my wife’s Etsy store, “Science and Fiction?” Check out her Starfleet pips choker

All of the current characters are being killed off in my crossover event with DC.

After you do that, can we get a fan petition together to bring them back?
Yeah, well… that’s good character development.

NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!! 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?
They all come back as Pink Lanterns.
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.

I 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.

Another hollow moon conspiracy theorist!
Dean's avatar

Dean · 88 weeks ago

Yes, they’re hiding inside the hollow moon, thus the phrase ‘full moon’, or ‘moon full of werewolves’. How is this not obvious?

This comment rocks and you rock for making it.
They’re not extinct or hiding. They just went home

I propose that werewolves be the first extinct species we revive through cloning.

I’m pretty sure the award for that will go to a pokemon.

No they don’t. Dodos tasted awful.

Ye gods, just imagine if someone manages to clone some manner of ancient, extinct animal and they eat it, and it’s delicious.

Do you think they’d name the fast food chain Jurassic Pork?

For what? Some kind of Super Soldier project?
So awesome and beautiful and funny and inspiring. Well done and keep up the good work Joel.

Your comics have been well timed in my own crisis of work faith. Thank you for putting this out there and letting us know it’s okay to take risks to make ourselves happy.
Glad you’re enjoying it.

Joel, 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!!

A 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!

I heard the same thing about that time Jimmy Page bought and moved into the former house of Alistair Crowley.

I’ve been off HijiNKS ENSUE for a little while and just caught up with the new direction. I can only say, about effing time! I totally enjoyed it so far and looking forward to more.

One 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.

1 reply · active 86 weeks ago

Geez… nothing really. I’ve never done any shows in that part of the US. Sorry. I would love to alleviate you of your cash and booze, but unless you want to fly to a bigger destination type convention, it probably won’t happen.
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”.

Am 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.

The thing with young kids is you have to keep your improv skills sharp. Always “yes, and…”

A Vet for Were-Bunnies,….nice,…. I assume you read “Bunnicula” to her as a child,….that way she has the option of working with Vampire Bunnies too,…..

when my dad used to tell me he’d support whatever I wanted to do, I’d say, “What if I wanted to rob a bank?” “Are we talking a big branch or some small town thing? Plan it out first.”

I 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
