Phoenix Comicon Fancy Photo Comic Outtakes

Wil Wheaton and I got excited and made a thing! Check out our University of Gallifrey Fighting Time Lords Shirt over at Sharksplode.

Gallifrey University Fighting Time Lords Shirt - Doctor Who parody, geeky tees, funny t-shirts, nerdy shirts

I am closing out some current t-shirt and print designs. Please check out this blog post since the stuff on closeout probably won’t be available again any time soon.

NEWS! I will not be attending HeroesCon this weekend. Read more HERE. Sorry, Charlotte Fancy Bastards.

IT’S MY 30th BIRTHDAY RIGHT NOW! LOOK AT ME, EMBRACING MY MORTALITY! I DO NOT FEAR YOU, DEATH! I WELCOME YOU AS A FRIEND! WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET A BEER? How can you help celebrate my 1/3 life crisis? Oh I don’t know… maybe donate, get something off the wish list or buy something from the store or Sharksplode? Sure. Why not. Whatever.

If you have read my Phoenix Comicon Fancy Photo comic, then you understand the heat-induced delusions I must have been suffering when I tell you my original plan involved all of the above panels being integrated into that original comic. It would have been a comic so tall, so massive, such an affront to God, that people would have attempted to scale it in order to reach the heavens.  I felt like the previous Phoenix Fun Times comic had a loose narrative, so rather than call this “Part 2,” I am calling it “The Outtakes.” These are the bits that landed on the cutting room floor.

Big big thanks to Wil, Anne and Ryan Wheaton, Boyan and Amy. Additional thanks to Aaron “Chief” Douglas, the Phoenix Ghostbusters, the naked men who assaulted me, the people in the Stargate whose names I never caught (though the man drew Ryan’s super portrait and also draws Spider-Man), the wizarding folk, the cranky, square-headed man with the ballon house and Eric Fiallos who took the Geek Prom photos.. Damn, I already miss Phoenix.

  1. Happy Birthday Joel! Thank you for all of the laughs and I raise my glass to what lies ahead for the Hijinks Ensue crew!

  2. so I'm guessing you've repressed the memories of what happened between panels 6 & 7.

    other then near death due to cheese bear, and a little "bad touching" from batman, spiderman & capt America(?), it looks like it was an awesome time

  3. Happy birthday, good sir! May your days be merry and bright, and all that jazz!

    Great pics. I especially love the photo of the Chie–I mean Aaron Douglas and Wes–I mean GAH I'M CONFUSED. Anyway, it's a great photo.

    I *really* want to go to Nerd Prom. Or do I? It looks a bit…molest-y…

  4. Do not fear Death. Death is always at our side. When we show fear, it jumps at us faster than light. But, if we do not show fear, it casts its eye upon us gently and then guides us into infinity…

    Happy Birthday.


  5. Happy birthday, Joel! 😀 Way to face death like a champ. Maybe you two could, you know, hang out or whatever and forget this whole "making you age and eventually croak" thing? WHO KNOWS.

    Good luck with being old and stuff!

  6. "Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

    Happy Birthday

  7. Has anyone else noticed the site being down in the morning? I usually check it around 8:30am central time, but the past two days it was down around then.

  8. Happy Birthday, youngster!

    No, seriously. I have D&D books older than you. I still have my high school jacket, which was out of style by the time you were born. I'm old enough to be your father. Actually, Joel, I am y%$00s2u246i9p $%9uh t43p29h upru%hf ——– Carrier Lost ———-
