New HijiNKS ENSUE Store Explosm 2013

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!

A few of the shirts and the Lil’ Wil plushies (only 150 left) are up for preorder now (while they’re being shipped to the new warehouse) and the rest will be added when they arrive in a couple of weeks. New shirts to follow after that.

Big big thanks to explosm/Cyanide And Happiness (Derek, Andy, Rob, Matt, Kris and Dave) for making this possible.

BIG CRAZY GIANT MEGA BLOWOUT SALE IN THE HijiNKS ENSUE STORE!!!

hijinks-ensue-blowout-sale-blog-post-2013-09-07

Here’s the deal, you Fancy Bastards. I have to move ALL OF MY T-SHIRTS, BOOKS, PLUSHIES, ETC. from one warehouse to another entirely different warehouse on the complete opposite end of North America and that is going to be an expensive and tedious process. In order to make that process LESS EXPENSIVE and LESS TEDIOUS, I am willing to offer my mercantile goods to you at roughly their cost plus a little bit to cover the labor of the actual humans who are packing and shipping them and what not.

THAT MEANS: Until 9/21/13 I will have HE Book 1 for $10 (books are the heaviest and hardest to ship so PLEASE buy these!), Book 2 for $15, and all shirts for $9 – $15. I don’t expect you will see deals like this in the HE store ever again unless I am going entirely out of business and NONE of us wants that (except for YOU, Gary. Yes I know you want me gone, but I won’t go that easily you son of a bitch!).

So GO GO GO BUY BUY BUY STUFF STUFF STUFF! 

[And go go go fuck yourself, Gary.]

These shirts are being shipped by Blind Ferret, not me. As far as I know it shouldn’t be more than $10 or so. Sorry about that.

It’s $14 shipping for one shirt to California, unfortunately. (I know it’s not your fault! Just letting you know.)
WHAT?! Checking on it now.

Joel, I discovered your comic about 8 months ago, I have started from the beginning and have been following your comic ever since I caught up 6 months ago. I love your strip, the experiment, all of it. Also, my fiancee is about to get a lot of stuff from your wifes store. I just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do. Your comic has helped keep a smile on my face and reassure me there are others out there that think like I do.

Sailing? As in Christopher Cross’ Sailing? You just got cooler (in an easy listening from 1979 sort of way).

How much money do you need to restart the podcast?

1 reply · active 87 weeks ago

It’s not that simple. I need money to make it worth my time, time to make it possible within the confines of reality and other interested parties to make it not just me.

HijiNKS ENSUE At Fan Expo Canada (Toronto)!!!

2013-08-18-hijinks-ensue-at-fan-expo-canada-toronto

Your eyes and your literacy do not deceive you! I will be at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto this weekend with Blind Ferret and Randy Milholland of of Something*Positive. I will be at booth #844 and I will have t-shirts, books, sketches, prints, Lil’ Wil plushies and… THE MYSTERY BOXXXXX!!!

Come by and buy stuff or say hi, or ‘eh or aboot or CTHULHU FHTAGAN or whatever you Torontoonians say. Remember (always remember and NEVER forget) that you have the option (NAY, THE RESPONSIBILITY!) to bring me tribute in the form of exotic boozes, confectionary treats, Starbucks Doubleshots (the ones in the tiny cans), or actual Starbucks Iced Soy Lattes in exchange for my favor. My favor may take the form of a free sketch, a handshake, a confused and confusing scowl or a series of fierce blows to the head and knees and maybe the ear canals.

UPDATE: OH CRAPSPASM I JUST REMEMBERED THE KOREAN BBQ PLACE IN TORONTO THAT SERVES UNLIMITED MEATS FOR LIKE $8 OK NOW I’M SUPER EXCITED!!!

ANOTHER THING! 

Check out these Tetris earrings my wife made!

Are you going to the con?

Larry · 95 weeks ago

Tell me more about this Korean BBQ place, please! I’m going to be in Toronto the week after this con.

I’ll also suggest that, last time I was there, there were a bunch of decent and cheap sushi places on Eglinton between Yonge and Mt. Pleasant. Also, I suggest you try the amazing Jewish delicacy known as Smoked Meat. Caplansky’s near U of T and Centre Street Deli up in the burbs are both amazing, and different enough that it’s worth going to both if you want.

It’s amazing. They just keep bringing you raw meat and you cook it in your table and it’s AMAZING. The more the cook the dirtier the grill gets with meat drippings so the longer you’re their cooking, the better the food tastes.

Thanks! I do love Korean BBQ. There’s one in Philly where the little old lady who brings the bulbogi et al to your table doesn’t really trust you to get it right unless you are asian, female, and over 50.

I feel kind of cheated with this comic. A week or so with no new comic, and this new one is basically an advertisement for something else I can’t afford. 🙁 But I know this is not just a hobby for you, so you do what you gotta do. Also, I was thinking of buying a drawing from you if it’s still available when I get paid Friday. Is a zombie panda eating the HE crew too complicated?

Sorry, no edit button. To add to the end of my other post, I’ll most likely be including an extra $10 donation if that matters at all.
Trying not to be too insulted by your initial comment, but if you feel you aren’t getting what you deserve from this situation then perhaps you should seek free entertainment elsewhere. If you want to buy a sketch that’s cool, but 4 characters will require more than a $10 donation. The guidelines are posted on the sketch drive page.
I am SOOO looking forward to meeting you at Fan Expo this year! I missed you laster year as I was at the Star Wars Celebration Convention. My friend bought me your second book and i’ve been hooked ever since.

That’s great! Im glad you enjoyed the book.
They’re made to order so they’ll be available when you’re ready. Thanks!

 

Fancy Digital Sketch Drive 2013 is GO GO GO!

Give me money, I’ll give you art. Very simple. VERY fancy. More info HERE

hijinks-ensue-digital-sketch-drive-07-13

On August 1, 2012 my outside air conditioner died . The year before that, on August 1, 2011, the inside AC unit died. Both times you, The Fancy Bastards, saved my sweltering ass by purchasing sketch cards from my Fancy Sketch Drive. Here we are on August 1, 2013 and (so far) no major home appliances have exploded, but finances ARE super tight in HijiNKS ENSUE land.

To that end I am offering my first ever Digital Fancy Sketch Drive!For $20 I will draw just about whatever you want and send you a hi-res 8.5×11″ file, suitable for printing and framing. It will have a nice border denoting the 2013 Fancy Digital Sketch Drive and everything.

GO BUY A SKETCH!

just put in a request, but forgot to say, you can IM me if it’s confusing.

it’s likely confusing.

Hi Joel, when you say to write in the sketch request in the checkout field does that mean the one down at the bottom of the page or on PayPal? If it’s the latter I’ve made a major booboo.

2 replies · active 96 weeks ago

In the box during check out that says “sketch request.” I just checked and you did yours right.

Thank you, please ignore the incredibly worried email I have just sent you. Of all the things I did wrong one of them was not subscribing to replies on this comment…

Emailing me would make it easier for me to help you.
I sent your sketch download link via email on October 27, 2013
