NEWS: HijiNKS ENSUE is going to once a week, and will end in 2016. [Read more]
I’m launching a new comic on June 1!
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!Tags: david willis, joel does a guest comic, shortpacked, transformers
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.appearances, conventions, dragon's lair webcomic rampage, news, podcast
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.
You can pick up the book in 4 delicious flavors: Regular, Regular Artist Edition, Ultimate Fancy Edition and Ultimate Fancy Artist Edition. Other than conventions this will probably be your only chance to get a personalized and sketched book. You can also add a SUPREME ULTIMATE FANCY BASTARD Donation upgrade to your order if you would REALLY like to support HE and help with the astronomical costs of printing actual full color books on actual paper (we’re talking $8000 – $10,000 here). read more…Tags: hijinks ensue books, news, store
Oh, man I am crazy excited about these. Order quick so you can get them out before Solstice or Boxing Day or whatever.
The pack is $15 and you get 12 cards (3 of each design). By large demand there is a “I’m a Snowflake On The Wind” card, an Xmas-ized version of “If Loving You Is Wrong…“, and 2 brand new designs feating the Zombiefied HE Crew and Boxcar Pete commanding a legion of rats!Tags: holiday cards, news, store
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

Once upon a time I made A COMIC about 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.Tags: chris hardwick, news
The British Knights are coming! No, I am not talking about shoes from the late 80’s/early 90’s. I’m talking about the Queen most elite guard of chivalrous badasses.

Do you believe in an Alien’s right to choose? Alien reproductive rights is certainly a complicated and divisive issue. At least we can all agree not to touch their blood. Because it’s made of acid. And it will melt your fingers off.

Hey, dudes, there’s one last hurrah for me this convention season, and it’s a doozy! On December 11-12, Dragon’s Lair Comics in Austin, Texas, is holding Webcomic Rampage [link to Facebook Event]! It’s Saturday and Sunday, each day beginning with a panel featuring all of us webcomics guests, and culminating in some Webcomics Christmas Shopping. Who’s coming?
David Willis of Shortpacked!/Dumbing of Age
Danielle Coresetto of Girls with Slingshots!
Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue
Bill Williams of Side Chicks
Randy Milholland of Something Positive
Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content
Josh Lesnick of Girly
These are all awesome people and Webcomic Rampage is going to be awesome. Be there!
Last year this was a fantastic and informal show with tons of creators and readers just hanging out and talking comics. I had a blast and can’t wait to do it again.Tags: appearances, conventions, news
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!].
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…Tags: appearances
