Some announcements!

Some announcements!

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 16:38 by Ananth in response to delilah and the basilisk: epilogue

Poor Death ... there really isn't anything in the Reaper Handbook about people turned to stone. Cecilia seems to have some ideas though ... Lucky for him!

We have a couple of announcements! 

CHRISTMAS DEADLINES
First, our belated Christmas deadline. The deadline for any orders you want to receive by Christmas is 12 PM EST tomorrow (Wednesday). That's noon tomorrow! Sorry for the short notice - we've had to play it by ear this year. We'll pack up whatever orders we get and ship 'em first thing Thursday. As far as what's in stock, plenty of prints, almost all sizes of the Mawzantine tees, and limited sizes of PaleontoLOLgy, ZooLOLogy, and Phoenix Down tees. There are also only a few totes left! 

TCAF 2010 (May 8-9)
We'll be at TCAF 2010! That's the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, which we've attended in the past but never given ourselves the opportunity to be behind a table. We'll be sharing with TK. More info about that show in the run up to it. 

DARK HORSE PRESENTS
That thing we were working on at the end of last month is an 8-page short for Dark Horse Presents. It'll go up in February 2010. A lot of fun to work on, and we're mega excited to see it go up. 

PALEONTOLOLGY TEES
A final note about PaleontoLOLgy tees - we've reordered them! They won't arrive in time for Christmas, but they'll be back in stock soon. We'll pass on the details as soon as we get word back from our printer (as you can imagine, December is a busy time for everyone!). )

Hope you guys are having a good week so far! The holidays are just around the corner. ;) Hang in there!

That would be by far... the most creepy house to walk by EVER! D:

It's like Christmas and

It's like Christmas and Halloween at the same time ... !

Dude, I don't know about

Comment by Robert V Aldrich (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 15:38

Dude, I don't know about you, but if I came across a house that had a bunch of Maws hanging out on human-like statues decorated with festive holiday lights, I would go out of my way to walk by it each and every day.

i love how morbidly cute

Comment by DisposablePal (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:10

i love how morbidly cute both of the stories are. Johnny Wander is easily my favorite webcomic this year. Keep up the good work

Comment by Adam M (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 18:47

"Morbidly cute" is exactly the phrase that came to mind when I read this. :-)

You're too kind, I'm so glad

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:29

You're too kind, I'm so glad you enjoy it!

ha-HA!

Comment by yraelis (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:15

XD the people-statues look like zombiesssss. (oh and that FRETFRET face that Death's got on is hilariously similar to Gonta).

You guys are amazinggggg

Fret

Comment by Softspoken (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 21:26

Maybe Gonta saw Death, and decided to take lessons?
Always funny when someone is more confident and decisive than an ageless incarnation of a universal force.

Depending on your

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:30

Depending on your personality, you have an eon to sharpen your skills or an eon to fret away! ;)

Deadly Christmas XD

Comment by Razor (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:16

Happy Holidays...from Death and the missus!

(can cecilia get more adorable? I think not! =D )

aww

Comment by shoshtastic (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:18

Cecilia is a problem solver with flair. I agree both these stories were morbidly adorable!

Cute

Comment by Randomness (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:28

This is a super cute page, but is it just me or do Death and Cecilia look like kids in that last panel?

this is EXACTLY the comic i

Comment by David Kingaby (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:43

this is EXACTLY the comic i wanted to see today!

Hah, nice!

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:30

Hah, nice!

I like Cecilia's design

Comment by Nojh (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 17:57

I like Cecilia's design sense.

<3

Comment by Brax (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 18:06

The *fretfretfret* look on Death's face is too cute for words. XD

Oh, Cecilia, you genius, you. :D *stamp of approval*

One Has to Wonder...

Comment by Joe D. (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 18:19

Is Death just nervous about EVERYTHING? You'd think that after a couple million years on the job, something like this wouldn't phase him.

Unless... is this a NEW death per chance, Ananth & Co? That could be an interesting storyline to pursue. Death takes Ceci home to "meet the family."

Yuko and I have been talking

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:32

Yuko and I have been talking about background info for short stories next year, and this did come up! We'll see. :)

Woo! Crossover!

Comment by Chris D. (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 18:26

Just goes to show all it takes it two separate stories in a comic world before they do a cross over. :-)

Just got my palentlology shirt, love your business card, too. It's a good way to promote the comic.

mahhhhhhhh lucky even though

Comment by supersamurai (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 20:07

Death and Cecilia are quite

Comment by Midori (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 20:10

Death and Cecilia are quite adorable in this one! xD I like the subtle change in style-- the two look really cute despite the situation, haha. Your guys' side stories make me happy : D

So glad these stories have

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:33

So glad these stories have been well-met!

Haha, wasn't expecting an

Comment by Kasek (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 20:11

Haha, wasn't expecting an epilogue, let alone one like this.Poor Death looks so nervous, looks like there's far more to Cecilia than meets the eye if she doesn't mind a skeleton hand and petrified humans in her front yard.

I love Death and Cecilia and

Comment by QuoteRadar (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 20:19

I love Death and Cecilia and I like how you've subtly adapted them into the style of Delilah and the Basilisk. Cute!

I will never get tired of

Comment by Rayna (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 20:59

I will never get tired of seeing Death fret. IT'S ADORABLE and also totes hilarious. Greatest couple ever, oman. :Db

Addendum

Comment by Rayna (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 21:01

One small thing! It looks like Cecilia's floating on the stairs rather than actually sitting on it. :|a

Oh lord

Comment by KA42 (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 22:14

I'm sorry, but this page alone, just might be the cutest thing you have ever drawn. I can't stop just smiling at this one page.
Please. Will you guys please make a wallpaper of Cecilia and Death?

Death's age

Comment by Kyo (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 22:31

Death looks about 12 at the end there.

Though he is Death, so he could change how he appears

They were adapted to the

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:34

They were adapted to the style of Delilah & The Basilisk ... everyone looks a little kiddish in that style. ;)

Well, this is

Comment by allison (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 22:51

Well, this is embarrassing... I just now realized that when Cecilia met death on that date... It was a date with death.

Very clever ploy there, you two. I feel silly for taking so long to realize it, though.

haha if it makes you feel

Comment by supersamurai (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 20:06

haha if it makes you feel any better...

... i just got that too @_@

Buttons?

Comment by VeroJade (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 22:57

Are you guys making more buttons?

Yup! Can't say as to when

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:35

Yup! Can't say as to when they'll be back in the store, but yes. :)

OMG*squee*

Comment by Yuki-chanthecrazycat (not verified) Tue, 12/15/2009 - 23:25

MAWS!!! ON TOP OF THE ZOMBIE STATUES!!!

i love you guys.

Y'know...

Comment by Matt B. (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 00:26

Death kind of reminds me of Charlie Brown for some reason in that last panel. Probably the fretting.

DHP

Comment by Kyven (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 00:42

It would be nice if the Dark Horse Presents short leads to you doing some work in print for them. A Cecilia and Death miniseries perhaps?

Hah, that'd be cute! Print

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:36

Hah, that'd be cute! Print work would be lovely. :)

Oh Hey

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 04:00

Took me a while to notice the Maws

Ha. I love how you

Comment by Galth (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 08:01

Ha. I love how you redesigned these characters to work with the Delilah short's art style. Nice touch.

Much better than my epilogue.

Comment by Joe (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 09:31

So THAT'S where lawn gnomes come from.

I wonder if Death is more

Comment by Justin G. (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 10:29

I wonder if Death is more worried about the statues or the Maws on top of the statues, he seemed quite confused and frustrated by the creatures in his notes previously.

Guys, this is absolutely

Comment by Robert V Aldrich (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 10:32

Guys, this is absolutely brilliant. Well-played and well-done.

Ahaha, thank you Rob!

Ahaha, thank you Rob! 

AH! AH!

Comment by Dr3w (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 13:24

HOLY CRAP THAT'S THE MOST EPIC EPILOGUE EVER

Sorry. But you just made an EPIC WIN for that one. You guys ever make it down to the Greenville SC/Atlanta GA area? I'd love to meet you both and praise your work in person.

We don't have plans to head

Comment by Ananth Wed, 12/16/2009 - 17:06

We don't have plans to head that way yet, but if for some reason that changes we'll be sure to mention it on the site! :DD

Mecha-cute :3

Comment by il biggo (not verified) Wed, 12/16/2009 - 18:09

This is so cute I could cry.
First I wanted to hug the Basilisk. Now I want to hug Death and tell him it's gonna be alright :-)
