WE WERE LATE. Actually, the doorknob got replaced this morning. Crisis averted!
Some of you are new to the site! Here is the quick version of Johnny Wander: charm of life autobio-comics with the occasional break for fiction shorts. If you've coming over from Girls with Slingshots, welcome - hope you enjoy it! And if you're a regular JW reader, we have a guest strip up over at GWS - it's a little NSFW (not safe for work), so don't click through if you or your employers are easily offended!
Looks like Delilah and her pal found lunch! We'll just help ourselves ...
We're thinking of making a print set out of this week's art - are you guys interested? Let us know in the comments!
We'll be at Connecticon next week! We'll bring tees and maybe a Maw figurine or two, so catch us early! And speaking of tees, I mentioned it last week: PaleontoLOLgy and ZooLOLogy tees are back in stock!
That's all from us! Have a good weekend, everyone!
One of many things wrong with Spacklehaus. Every time it rained, we got a little swimming pool in the basement. I sometimes imagine the house as an old prize fighter, on his last legs, doing his best but ultimately falling short. We were in Rochester this past weekend for Toracon, and we took a moment to drive by Spacklehaus - the red paint on the shutters has bled down the front of the building and the houses on either side seem to have been repainted, so it looks a little like a haunted house.
Hey guys, the website just deleted a huge news post I had written up. I'm on a severe time crunch and don't have the time to rewrite it, so I'll just hit on the key points.
I'm certain this has been mentioned before, my day job is basically doing work-for-hire comics. Right now, I'm trying to hit this deadline before we leave for Toracon tomorrow and there isn't time for much else. Sorry guys, I'll be more diligent next week!
A while back, George bought frosting for the pill cookies that went with his Dr. Mario costume. John's since been taking care of the frosting by squeezing it onto a spoon and eating it. What I'm trying to say is that give him the frosting and run away while he's distracted.
We ordered new bookmarks today. Those cat bookmarks will be back, and they'll be joined by a puppy bookmark and a Maw bookmark.
Mort was the landlord in Rochester, and he was an odd guy. If he was an action figure, he'd come with a bottle in a brown paper bag, a cigarette, and spackle, and if you pushed the button on his back he'd say one of his Mort-isms, in the voice of Watto (the little flying scrap dealer in Phantom Menace). There were a lot! You'll probably see more Spacklehaus memoirs in the near future - we talked about living there during one of our panels at I-Con, and it brought everything (hilariously) back.
You guys might recall this comic from way back when - sometimes dreams do come true.
Hey guys! I know many of you are headed to PAX East, but we will be at I-Con in Long Island this weekend! If you're free and in the area, come by and say hello. We'll be bringing all the JW merch we can carry, and we'd love to say hey! We'll be sharing a table with Mookie of Dominic Deegan.
If any one of them starts crying, they all start crying ... it was all wailing and gnashing of teeth on that plane. Some of it might've been mine, to be honest ... one of the babies had a cry of the exact frequency needed to drill a hole into my skull. Mutant?
We'll be at Connecticon! Conrad will be posting the relevant info in the sidebar tonight or tomorrow, but click through on the link and check it out. Hopefully we'll see you there! We will have some JW merch to sell!
