I don't even know. 

If this Kickstarter for a Pirate-themed game gets fully funded, Yuko will be providing art for one of the cards! And there's a Yuko Ota pledge package that includes some original art from her. Take a look. 

SPX is coming up in 2 weeks! It's from Sept. 10-11 in Bethesda, MD. More information about that next week!

Catch you Thursday!

John. You are my idol as of right now.

I'm going to do this to my friend's cat and then direct them to your comic so it will make sense to them.


Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 08/31/2011 - 06:30

It still won't make much sense

True Enough

Comment by LJanus (not verified) Wed, 08/31/2011 - 18:41

But it will probably mean spreading the hilarious awesometacity of this comic to one more person.

Tolerant cat...
Although it's a god thing John wasn't in the mood for bongos or some more percussive instrument.

Manly cat kissing

Comment by Raptorix (not verified) Tue, 08/30/2011 - 18:26

Makes me think of how my sister showers her kitten in kisses. Maybe this is how John shows his affection for Cricket without the goofy schmoopy kissy noises. Now it's just goofy.
BTW is John's Saxocat playing related to Advanced Cat Yodeling?

Ah, beat me to it!

I was going to say something about An Engineer's Guide to Cats but... you got the follow-up up first... ah well, still worth mentioning...

And yet...

If he was playing the cat like a trombone, I would be more impressed :)

It'd have to be a longcat.

For a second there I thought you were behind a project kickstarting the translated edition of Florent Maudoux's Freaks' Squeele.

Malheureusement ce n'est pas le cas. C'est dommage. C'est vraiment une tres bonne serie BD.

From the expression in the last panel; I'm guessing that he's getting some good sound out of that cat. :P

... Cats are better suited for the cat accordion. Also, I think we all remember "cat yodeling". (If not, see "An Engineer's Guide to Cats" on the YouTubes.)

I see I'm not alone in totally loving John. All the comics that feature him are my favorites! I sent every single one to a friend of mine. By the fifth one she was telling me to stop. I COULDNT. John is amazing. I wish I knew him.

Pledges finished!

that John is my favorite character of your guy's life. He cracks me up with his absurdity and I also internet-stalked him to find out what he actually does/looks like. I want a I <3 John facebook fan page.... I may make it.
