Guest Comic By Sam Logan Of Sam & Fuzzy

“Winter Is Coming” shirts are now IN THE STORE!!! [based on this comic]


NYCC Guest Week is in full effect!

I am at New York Comic-Con with Blind Ferret at Booth #1821 this weekend  (10-13 to 10-16). I will trade awkward stares for confusing winks and t-shirts, sketches, prints and books for stacks and stacks of monies. I will be giving out free “Sci-Fives” all weekend [the hand gesture, not the t-shirt].

Sam Logan of Sam and Fuzzy understands my struggle. It isn’t enough to just juxtapose two elements of pop culture and wait for the delicious LOLs to roll in. You have to find a reason WHY the juxtaposition is funny. The equation must have a result other than “I know both’o thems things.” It’s not enough to say, “What if Batman was in Starfleet?” Because he would… wait… what IF Batman WAS in Starfleet?! I… I have have to go start a new comic.

Sam Logan has the unique distinction of being one of the 4 or 5 Canadians I know. He also makes essentially the best Harry Potter T-shirt the word has ever seen, and draws caves like nobody’s business. Not to mention he is one of my favorite convention buddies in all of comicdom. I take immense pleasure in improving his merchandise, and helping his create horrifying characters [scroll down to the blog post] and t-shirts that no one would ever want.

COMMENTERS: Following Sam’s example, come up with your own terrible pop-culture mashup. Puns are encouraged. Actually being funny for the right reasons is not.

NYCC Guest Week has started!

I am going to be at New York Comic-Con with Blind Ferret at Booth #1821 this weekend  (10-13 to 10-16). Come say hi with your mouth and purchase things with your money. I will be giving out free “Sci-Fives” all weekend [the hand gesture, not the t-shirt].

Paul Southworth of Not Invented Here starts off guest week right by trying to convince us all that people actually watch videos of other people playing Internet blocks Minecraft… wait, what? That’s a real thing? Well, holy shit. You learn something questionable every day.

Paul has one of the most unique art styles in webcomics. I’ve always envied his ability to create characters with uniquely shaped body types and non-standard proportions. He isn’t confined by realism and that allows him to draw characters that are actually fun to look at. His style is like a curvier Gendy Tartakovsky. It’s something my brain absolutely will not let me do. Now he has gone so far as to show me what MY OWN CHARACTERS would look like if I knew how draw them correctly. That miserable sonuvabitch.

A million years ago I did a guest comic for Paul’s now concluded comic Ugly Hill. You can see more great HijiNKS ENSUE Guest Comics by other awesome artists HERE.

COMMENTERS: Do you do this Minecraft video thing? Feel feel to post yours or your favorites in the comments.

Guest Comic By Brian Patterson Of d20 Monkey: “The World According To L.A.R.P.”

I am closing out some current t-shirt and print designs. Please check out this blog post since the stuff on closeout probably won’t be available again any time soon.

NEWS! I will not be attending HeroesCon this weekend. Read more HERE. Sorry, Charlotte Fancy Bastards.

GUEST COMIC WEEK ROCKETS INTO TOMORROW! In celebration of my 30th birthday I’m taking the week off. How can you help celebrate my 1/3 life crisis? Oh I don’t know… maybe donate, get something off the wish list or buy something from the store or Sharksplode? Sure. Why not. Whatever.

Today’s foam tipped and cardboard shielded guest comic comes from Brian Patterson of d20 Monkey! The last time Brian sat in for me it was one of the best received guest comics in HE history (HEstory, or HijiNKS ENSUstory), so of course when the need arose I asked him to take the reigns once more. I do apologize to any of you Fancy Bastards that can’t control the boners produced by panel 3. If boners persist for more than four hours, please see a physician.

Guest Comic By Len Peralta “Gaga Giveaways”

Wil Wheaton and I got excited and made a thing! Check out our Gallifrey University Fighting Time Lords Shirt which you can purchase now over at Sharksplode.

GUEST COMIC WEEK CONTINUES WITH RECKLESS ABANDON! In celebration of my 30th birthday I’m taking the week off and recharging from Phoenix Comicon (which was amazing btw). How can you help celebrate my 1/3 life crisis? Oh I don’t know… maybe donate, get something off the wish list or buy something from the store or Sharksplode? Sure. Why not.

Today’s gagaguest comic comes from Len Peralta! Len is an amazing geek illustrator who has worked with Paul and Storm, w00tstock, Jonathan Coulton, John Hodgeman, Rifftrax and Wil Wheaton. He is also the creator of the “Geek A Week” trading cards and the “50 vs. 50 Project“. If you like knowing what awesome geeks are up to, follow Len on twitter.

NEWS! I will not be attending HeroesCon this weekend. I had to back out and eat the plane ticket (it was not delicious), due to having sold nearly all of the t-shirts I purchased for that show at Phoenix Comicon (thanks Phoenix!) and due to my being completely exhausted after 4 days of super hard work in the sweltering Arizona comics mines. I am very sorry to those of your in Charlotte that were looking forward to seeing me at the show. As it stands I have very little left to sell and very little energy left to give. My sincere apologies.

GUEST COMICS! I am taking this week off from comicing since I JUST got back from Phoenix and AND it’s my birthday this week (June 3rd… feel free to, oh I don’t know… donate, get something off the wish list or buy something from the store or Sharksplode). I have some very fine guest comics lined up for you this week. Please to enjoy this first submission from my friend David.

David Willis is either one of my favorite human beings, my arch nemesis or a little of both. Either way he understands the hold that geek pop-culture has over my life and knows how to exploit my weakness. Lucky for me, he has a childlike enthusiasm for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic which trumps any fanboy shortcomings I may posses 100 fold. Please read his comics, Shortpacked and Dumbing Of Age. Please read them so he will tell me where my wife is. He keeps mailing me envelopes full of her hair.
