The Shallow End

Please do not give me too much credit for today’s comic. I did not come up with WINEPOOL. I merely documented, and commented on its existence. WINEPOOL is a real thing… and ALL TOO real thing. It is a sign of the times, as well as a portent of things to come. 100 years from now, what little is left of humanity will measure their history in two epochs: Before WINEPOOL and After WINEPOOL. After WINEPOOL will also be known as THE GREAT BLOOD WAR, or THE CENTURY OF SKULLS. Either way, no good can come of it. Still, it’s best not to fight the inevitable. Our new WINEPOOL-based society is sure to take foot any day now, and those who refuse to adapt will certainly be left in the shallow end.

In the last day or so the HijiNKS ENSUE Patreon went over $1500, which means starting next month there will be 4 new comics a week! This is either going to take the form of 4 HE comics or 3 HE comics and one FANEURYSM comic. Haven’t decided yet. Either way, thank you all so much for the support!

Guest Comic By Natalie Metzger

CALGARY FANCY BASTARDS!

Thank you so much for treating me so kindly while I visited your fine city, and thank you to my friends/brothers from  Cyanide & Happiness for hosting me and letting me play in there sandbox once again. I worked harder and drew more at this con than I ever have in my entire life. We, Rob Denbleyker and I, literally sketched for 9 hours a day, 4 days in a row with no more than a 15 minute break each day. My hands are sore, my brain is tired, and my heart is full of Alberta beaf… no, wait. My stomach… no, pretty sure it’s my heart. 

I hope to see you again next year, Calgary!

RE: This comic
When I was at Emerald City Comicon last month, I received the first ever piece of “post-reboot” HE fan art
(WARNING: ADORBS) from Fancy Bastard Natalie Metzger. She contacted me and offered a guest comic for my Calgary trip and I was all too happy to accept. Oh, little bottles of booze, you will surely be my undoing. You and the Great Old Ones. But mostly you.

Natalie has two webcomics going on right now:

http://cthulhuslippers.com and http://over-encumbered.com

She also has a website/hub here:  http://thefuzzyslug.com

STORE STUFF!
There are some great PRINTS and POSTERS in the store. Your walls cry out for them. Appease your lamenting walls!

Scared Straight

NEWS NEWS NEWS!!!

HijiNKS ENSUE finally has a proper About/Characters page, and an Archive page that links to and explains the different types of comics I’ve made over the years. I’ve also updated the Support page.

My Patreon hit $750, so starting in April (the first month Patrons will be charged) HijiNKS ENSUE will have an official Monday/Wednesday/Friday update schedule and THEN it went past $1000 so every month I will do TWO HijiNKS Hangouts, where me and my awesome cartoonist/creator/maker/professional awesome person friends will hang out with you live via Google+, answer questions, tell stories, draw dicks, etc. It will be a lot like my ComfyCon Panel.

At $1500, you will be forcing me to do FOUR HE comics a week, and I am OK with that.

COMMENTERS: Did you ever meet someone as a kid, or hear someone speak as a teen, or interact with a particular person in any way that made you say, “THAT. That is what I want to be.” Hearing Niel deGrasse Tyson talk on Cosmos (seriously, watch this show with your kids) about his encounter with Carl Sagan at 17, and how it shaped not only WHAT he wanted to become, but THE KIND OF PERSON he wanted to be really got me thinking about this.

Let’s Real Talk

NEWS NEWS NEWS!!!

For the first time in 6+ yeas, HijiNKS ENSUE has a proper About/Characters page, and an Archive page that links to and explains the different types of comics I’ve made over the years. I’ve also updated the Support page.

My Patreon blasted past the $750, so starting in April (the first month Patrons will be charged) HijiNKS ENSUE will have an official Monday/Wednesday/Friday update schedule! I am gearing up this month, so expect something very close to a M/W/F schedule for the rest of March as well.

When we hit $1000 (only $25 from now, as of this posting), I’ll start (in April) producing 2 HijiNKS Hangouts (a live streaming Google Hangout with me and some of my wonderfully interesting and funny comicer/maker friends)  a month AND I will release my ukulele cover of “Let It Go” from Frozen as a thank you to all the Patrons.

At $1500 you will get FOUR HijiNKS ENSUE comics a week, Mon-Thurs. I really hope we get there, because I am looking for something to force me/guilt me into making more comics.

Uncancelling The Adrunkalypse

This is taken from a Fancy Digital Sketch I did for Fancy Bastard David Lewis, who asked for “The HijiNKS ENSUE cast’s entry into the Pacific Rim Jaeger program.”

I posted a few more Fancy Digital sketches on my Tumblr (here and here). If you are still waiting on a sketch, you are a wonderful and patient person who will be rewarded very soon with a weird drawing like the one above.

I might post a few more of these sketches as Lofi’s depending on how they turn out.

I imagine if you get the Kaiju monsters drunk enough, they’ll have to stop wreaking havoc and start throwing up instead.
