Comedy And TrageD’oh!

Do me a favor, if you enjoy this comic, please check out my store, my shirts on Sharksplode, and my wife’s geeky jewelry on Etsy. It would help us out a great deal. DENVER FANCY BASTARDS: I will be at Denver Comic Con THIS WEEKEND with Cyanide & Happiness...
Secret Agent Man

Secret Agent Man

[It’s 4:30am. I’ll color this one when I wake up.] Coulson Lives! Yay! Except that sort of deflates the emotional impetus for the unification of the team in the 3rd act of The Avengers! Boo! I have complex and conflicting emotions about a thing just like...
The Boy Who Cried Happy Ending

The Boy Who Cried Happy Ending

Mine and Wil’s T-Shirt site, Sharksplode, is involved in the Reddit T-Shirt Exchange this year, and to get these started we’re launching a brand new shirt. The Reddit “Reddshirt“… shirt!  In the last comic, I invented the concept of...
The Best Part Of Waking Up

The Best Part Of Waking Up

Part 1 of a probably two parter. If you don’t already own everything in my store… what… what’s wrong? Are you ok?  Joss Whedon signs a multiyear deal with one of the largest entertainment companies in the world...
Dead Leaves On The Dirty Wind

Dead Leaves On The Dirty Wind

[STORE UPDATE 02/04/13] Thanks to the diligence of the Blind Ferret team, the HijiNKS Ensue Store is un-hacked, re-upped and back-backed! I’ve lost over a 1/4 of my merch revenue for the month (and Jan/Feb are already slow months) so let’s all go celebrate...

For Every Action There Is A Redaction

CRUISE FUNDRAISER UPDATE: 98/100 prints are sold!  Only 2 prints remain! I am expecting delivery of the prints any day now and they’ll start shipping as soon as they arrive. I made a new eBook/iBook! It’s called “Sorry I Ruined Your Book Vol....

Unfortunate Furniture

CRUISE FUNDRAISER: 77/100 prints are sold and I only have until Dec 15th (2 days left!) to meet my goal of selling all 100. Help me get on a nerd boat and get some neat art for yourself in the process! I doubt Joss Whedon is the type to gloat, but I bet he had to be...

I Got The Moves Like Xander

I Got The Moves Like Xander

Here’s a mostly true San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Story starring my good friend Stepto (who you may remember from a previous appearance). It seems that while I was decompressing from the w00stock 4.0 festivities in Balboa theater as all the performers signed things...
SDCC 2012 Fancy Sketches

SDCC 2012 Fancy Sketches

I am still recuperating from SDCC. I will resume drawing Fancy Sketch Drive sketches this week, and start mailing them out as they are finished. There were almost 60 ordered so it’s going to take me a while. I appreciate your patience. I have a guest comic up at...
You Don’t Have To Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here

You Don’t Have To Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here

Alternate Title: “A Shawarma Bees” – I did not use this title because, despite making me laugh for an hour, it doesn’t make any sense. Read more about the new direction I am taking the comic in and how you can help HERE if you haven’t...
Waiving A New Banner

Waiving A New Banner

Alternate Title: “Hunting Ruffalo” Why are things happening in the comic that seem to relate to things that happened in yesterday’s comic and the day before’s comic? Because times, they are a changin’. Also comics. Comics are a thing that...
Of Tradition And Obligation

Of Tradition And Obligation

Did you know I have published two books of my comics containing NEW COMMENTARY for absolutely every comic, embarrassing stuff I drew in middle school and high school, and LOTS more extras that have never been published online? Well, I did and I’m really proud of...
Earth’s Most Magnetic Heroes

Earth’s Most Magnetic Heroes

Wow, we haven’t seen the Evil Fox Executive in a LONG time. I know Fox doesn’t have anything to do with The Avengers, but who else could be behind such a nefarious plot besides Joss Whedon’s oldest nemesis? Who else would want to take something good...
¿Terra? No Va

¿Terra? No Va

“Winter Is Coming” shirts are now IN THE STORE!!! [based on this comic] “¿Terra? No Va” translates to “Terra? Doesn’t Go.” As in, “With such a great premise Terra Nova could go SO MANY AMAZING PLACES, but choses not...
So Much Ado, So Little Time

So Much Ado, So Little Time

Wil Wheaton and I got excited and made this “Fighting Time Lords” shirt for you! No, really. Specifically FOR YOU. [For the confusified…] The man is a machine! And not the “rise up and destroy humanity” kind. He’s more the...

Cursed, Hexed And Vexed

Cursed, Hexed And Vexed

I doubt it’s actually in real danger of cancellation (no I don’t), but according to sources (rumors) Marvel IS seriously trying to ruin Whedon’s Avengers by demanding a potentially impossibly low budget. COME SEE ME AND SCARY UNCLE RANDY THIS WEEKEND...
Stop, Hey What’s That Sound?

Stop, Hey What’s That Sound?

“There is a key issue that we do not see eye to eye on and on this issue I refuse to back down. That is the issue of your brains and my desire to eat them because they are delicious and also BRAAAAAAAINS!” David went to the Rally To Restore Sanity and/or...
The Doctor Is Win

The Doctor Is Win

Alternate Title: “Horrible Fears A Who” This comic started as a commission for a reader named Justin who I met at Dallas Animefest 2010. His idea was for a “Doctor vs. Doctor” duel with The Good Doctor triumphing over the horrible doctor. I...
Unwavering Devotion

Unwavering Devotion

Josh doesn’t actually know what the character on his posterior really means, but if he shows it at the China Dragon Palace he gets a half priced buffet on Tuesdays. Which begs the question, why is he pulling his ass out in Chinese restaurants? QUICK NEWS!...
Avengers Get All Assembley!

Avengers Get All Assembley!

Still working on a proper C2E2 write up. In the meantime, let’s speculate wildly about Joss Whedon possibly, maybe, definitely directing The Avengers movie. What Whedonisms should he include in the film and which ones should he hold back on? As a fan of his...
Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Cancellation

Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Cancellation

This could very well be my last Dollhouse related comic. Revisit the ghost of Dollhouse Comic Past HERE. I think this comic sums up my feeling towards Dollhouse’s cancellation pretty well. There was definitely a spark of Whedon-Genius there, but it wasn’t...
The Darkseid Of The Fox

The Darkseid Of The Fox

[HOLIDAY SHPPING DEADLINES!!! I’ll be announcing these soon, but if you want a book (especially an Artist Edition) you should probably ORDER IT like right now] This origin story may sound familiar, and it may completely contradict the previous origin story for...
Jazz Fangs

Jazz Fangs

What can we expect from a Whedon-directed episode of Glee? Dark Willow and Andrew the uber-nerd signing a mashup of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and Positive K’s “I Got A Man”? A medley from “The Music Man” performed by...
Black As Pitch Meeting

Black As Pitch Meeting

In all fairness to Fox, their proposed space western sounds more like a Jonah Hex ripoff than a Firefly/Serenity wannabe. Credit where credit is due, I suppose. I love writing for the Evil Fox Exec. Despite appearing only a handful of times, I have his entire back...
Guest Star Galactica

Guest Star Galactica

Here’s the 2nd installment of this week’s “Lo FiJiNKS” comics. The preorder for the book is going amazingly well. Much better than I expected. Big thanks to everyone who has preordered so far. As of this posting there are only about 35 Ultimate...
Rebuffed

Rebuffed

A “Buffy” Movie without Joss Whedon? I will simply state that I am not in favor of this idea. But, I am self aware enough to admit that I am not an unbiased observer and am probably unable to render an wholly  objective opinion on the subject. That is why...
SciFi’s Choice

SciFi’s Choice

[digg-reddit-me]This comic has been making the inter–rounds so I though I would say “Hi” to all the new visitors. If you liked this comic, you can check out more HE comics about: TV, Dollhouse, Terminator: TSCC, SciFi, Joss Whedon, Battlestar...
Mixing Metaphors

Mixing Metaphors

Today’s HijiNKS Ensue brought to you buy Cmd+C/Cmd+V Comics. That’s Cmd+C/Cmd+V Comics, when your comic absolutely, positively has to be posted 12 hours late! [having dinner with the family then posting more… but the thing you need to understand is...
Monsters LLC, A Subsidiary Of Newscorp

Monsters LLC, A Subsidiary Of Newscorp

FOX employees are called “Sadness Technicians.” I guess it’s true that a tiger can’t change its stripes and a FOX can’t change its douchebaggery. Long story short, FOX is not going to air the 13th (and likely last ever) episode of...
A Crisis Of Faith

A Crisis Of Faith

Get it? Faith? Eliza Dushku? BAM! ZING! [Also, I should point out that Joel and Shepherd Eli are making a “W” sign on their chests in panel 3.] I really hate to fan the flames here, but Dollhouse just isn’t doing anything for me. I feel torn between...
The Con Job

The Con Job

A few Hollywood writers are working on “ComicCon, The Movie.” The very limited information I could find about the project makes it sound like “Empire Records” meets “Revenge of the Nerds.” Done well this could be an enjoyable flick...
Stacking The Odds

Stacking The Odds

As I type this, the series premiere of Joss Whedon’s first foray into TV in 5 years, “Dollhouse,” is only hours away. I approach this show with so much trepidation, that I’m not even sure if I’m enthusiastic any more. Joss and Fox have...
I’m A Snowflake On The Wind

I’m A Snowflake On The Wind

Bill Watterson and “Calvin and Hobbes” are two of the primary reasons I started making comics. Those of you who donate or subscribe to The Vault, have seen my earlier attempts to emulate his work (“it’s like Calvin and Hobbes but with a robot...
My Uncle The Astronaut

My Uncle The Astronaut

Molested by an astronaut. There’s your answer. What else could explain why Fox would launch a cerebral, high concept scifi show produced by Joss Whedon (Dollhouse) in the very same 9pm Friday time slot that obliterated their last cerebral, high concept scifi...
Comic-Con ’08 Revelations Pt. 1 “SereniTube”

Comic-Con ’08 Revelations Pt. 1 “SereniTube”

The Podcast Vidcast Simulcast Castcast will be tonight with Josh and Eli, starting between 8 and 9pm central. Check Twitter for exact times. Comic-Con ’08 is over and the webs are returning to normal. I wasn’t able to attend (much less exhibit), but...
Of Mice and Musicals

Of Mice and Musicals

I found out during recording of HijiNKS Ensue Podcast #21 that the legion horde of Whedon Zombies brought down DrHorrible.com with a swiftness. Mmmm, delicious server brains. I still haven’t seen the first episode of “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long...
Can’t Stop The Signal Fire

Can’t Stop The Signal Fire

Universal Studios is burning. No, there weren’t any reports of Firefly/Serenity set pieces going up in flames, but they did lose the Courthouse from Back to the Future. If any of you find yourselves traveling in the past to June 1st 2008 and you have to solve a...

Can’t Stop the Serenity

Has it been too long since you saw “Serenity” in the theater? Unless you saw it earlier today, the answer is yes. Can’t Stop the Serenity is organizing viewing of the BDM to benefit Equality Now. Any Dallas area FB’s can catch it June 22 at the...
What’s “Taters,” Precious?

What’s “Taters,” Precious?

“Po-Ta-Toes!” This is one of those comics that I didn’t have to write, because it just happened. Josh wanted to kill me and be done with it. He said I couldn’t be trusted and there was nothing left but evil in me, but Eli wouldn’t let him...
He’s a maniac, a maniac on the floor

He’s a maniac, a maniac on the floor

Despite the fact that we know almost nothing about Joss Whedon’s internet musical (they have those now?), “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog,” it now has it’s own fan blog. That may be a little “putting the fan-blorg before the actual...

Joss Whedon’s Intertnet Musical and more links!

Joss is writing and producing an internet musical called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog.” It will star Captain Tight Pants (Nathon Fillion) as Captain Hammer, and Felicia Day (former slayerette and current “The Guild” star). Hear it...
Save Dollhouse!

Save Dollhouse!

All I’m saying is if we started collecting signatures on the petition now, it will save us time in the long run. How many of you want to wait until Fox actually cancels “Dollhouse” to start the “Save Dollhouse” campaign. We’ve...
