Webcomic Rampage: The 6th One

hijinks ensue dragons lair webcomic rampage 2014

I’m loading up the car to drive to Austin right now for WEBCOMIC RAMPAGE! I’ll be debuting an all new MYSTERY BOX and a cool new contraption I’ve devised for sketches called THE SKETCH-A-MATIC. If you want to see what it is, and what THE BIG RED BUTTON does, you’ll have to come visit me at Dragon’s Lair this weekend. D-Lair was nice enough to do a write up about HE here.

I have been working on this new store (the image mockups, the web design, the backend, the integration with my fulfillment partners and printers, shipping, plugins, etc.) and the new shirt and hoodie designs 12-15 hours a day for at least the last 5 days straight. I say “at least” because I honestly don’t know anyway as that time and space and the confines of mortal existence have all become meaningless as my mind has been slowly unmade.

Potter And Daughter, A new podcast I’m making with my kiddo, needs your help!

potter and daughter podcast logo hijink ensue

I’ve added two new rewards levels to my Patreon. At $1750 I am going to completely redesign my website with bigger comics and better organization, and at $2000 I am going to produce and release a new podcast with my daughter all about her journey through the Harry Potter book series. The specifics are below:

Clean Up This Dump!

$1,750 per month

I will design, and/or pay someone to design, a brand new website for HijiNKS ENSUE that will make seeing the newest comics, finding the different kinds of comics (HE, Faneurysm, Con Sketches, etc.) MUCH easier. The comics images will also be about 20% bigger. I will improve the RSS feed for Patrons so that ALL COMICS (not just HE) will appear full sized in the Patron-only feed. I will also reintegrate the HE podcast into so it’s easier to browse the old podcast archive.

Potter And Daughter Podcast!

$2,000 per month

Potter And Daughter is a new podcast that I am recording with my seven year old kiddo, where we talk about the Harry Potter series book by book. She’s been reading the books with her mom for the past few months and listening to her geek out over them is pretty dang cute, if you ask me. So far we’ve recorded a handful of episodes just to make sure the idea is sound. If we reach this goal, we’ll keep recording the series all the way through all 7 books and start releasing them on iTunes and!
