Shortpacked Guest Comic: Robots N’ Dees Guys

Guys, I made a giant comic for you! It just happens to be on a different website. My friend David Willis is taking his belated honeymoon this week (on JoCo Cruise Crazy of all places) and I did a guest comic for him over at Shortpacked.

Before you read it (and you MUST read it) you will need to familiarize yourself with the all too true story of how the US Post Office stole a box of David’s books and replaced them with the bottom half of a blender. I know it sounds like the craziest of fictions, but it is 100% tue and 100% robot-tits insane.

David also makes a comic about college life antics called Dumbing Of Age. Read heartily and enjoy!

Webcomic Rampage Panel Pt. 1 On The HE Podcast


There is a special episode of the HE Podcast UP NOW. It is a webcomics panel recorded at the annual Dragon’s Lair Webcomic Rampage event in Austin, TX. Enjoy!

It features myself, Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots, Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content, David Willis of Shortpacked and Randal Milholland of Something Positive.

If you like listening to friends tell stories about stalkers, shitty jobs and making a living doing what they love, I think you will appreciate this.

Here are some pics from the event on Flickr and Facebook.

The Book 2 Presale Is Upon Us!

Tremble and feast your eyes skyward! Witness the horror! The sky has cracked wide! All manner of unspeakable evil escape its gaping maw! Also the HijiNKS ENSUE Book 2 Presale has started. So there’s that to look forward to.

Help Me Name HE Book 2

I had set aside today and tomorrow for drawing the cover to the next HijiNKS Ensue book, in hopes of putting up the presale next week. But so far I can’t settle on a name. This is a big deal because it determines what I will draw for the cover. Here are my current title contenders:

HijiNKS ENSUE Volume 2: My Heart Is A Hate-Filled Pineapple
HijiNKS ENSUE Volume 2: A Hate-Filled Pineapple

[both in reference to The Evil Fox Executive explaining why he is so evil]

HijiNKS ENSUE Volume 2: The Doom Engine
HijiNKS ENSUE Volume 2: The Doom Furnace

HijiNKS ENSUE Podcast with The Nerdist: Chris Hardwick!

Once upon a time I made A COMIC about Chris Hardwick.

HijiNKS ENSUE Twitter Movie Comic With Chris Hardwick

Then, through the magic of Twitter and The Internet I was able to interview the very same Chris Hardwick while he was in Dallas doing a few stand up gigs. Chris killed with murder-style laugh-times on stage and was extremely gracious and kind off stage. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed… conversating it.

If you Fancy Bastards aren’t already clued in to The Nerdist, you must check out his BLOG, The Nerdist Podcast (Matt Smith is the most recent guest) and The Node (a crowdsourcing/nerdsourcing/problem solving online community). Much like The Freemasons, it is invite only. So you’ll need to learn the secret handshake and go through the spanking machine to get in.

Austin Fancy Bastard/ Something*Positive Meetup!

HijiNKS ENSUE at Wizard World Austin!

This weekend (November 12-14) I will be sharing a table at Austin Comic-Con with Randy from Something*Positive (Randy will only be there Saturday and Sunday). Saturday night after the con we are going to have a joint reader meetup at [location to be determined by you!].

Velocirandy!

If you are an Austin local, please feel free to suggest a good place for the meetup within general walking (or short driving) distance from the Austin Convention Center (which is located at 500 East Ceaser Chavez). It’s right in the heart of downtown so there should be plenty of choices.

We are looking for a place that serves food and drinks (preferably BBQ), has more of a “hang out” atmosphere than a bar atmosphere and can accommodate medium to large crowds comfortably. Make a comment below with your suggestions and Randy and I will pick a winner.

These locations have already been suggested. Feel free to comment on these as well: read more…
