Watch out for that guy. We haven’t seen the bike sniper in a while, but I thought it was time for a comeback.
In our own way, we all need to be bike snipers. You have to be a little on the offense on your bike, assertive enough to not get run over. This guy is pushing those limits, but there’s an element of that in every cyclist on the road. Some wear it on their sleeve more than others.
It’s also the final day to vote for “Best/Worst File Name” on Thursday’s comic. Vote, won’t you?
New comic! It’s a little bit of a call back to singletasking and the cuddle clock. I’m rather proud of the shower scene, though. Take that, Saul Bass!
Super Art Fight @ Nerdmelt Tonight, ALSO ONLINE
If you’re in LA, join us. Details are here. If not, we’re streaming the whole thing. Details here. But if I find out any of you in LA aren’t at the show and get lazy and watch online, I’ll come to your house and smack you in the face.
This weekend, DC travelers had to contend with this. On every line. All weekend. My heart goes out to everyone that doesn’t get to walk, bike or drive to where they’re going, because it’s going to be a while.
We’re in the FINAL DAYS of ordering CATS DON’T CARE for preorder. So far only mostly women’s shirts (and one awesome men’s shirt) have been ordered, so this might be the first all-ladies shirt I make after the preorder. During the preorder, get whatever you want. We’ll see what happens. If you want yours for only $15 in any size you need, better order now.
This occurs to me every morning when I hear the traffic report.
All shirts are $15 this week!
BY THE WAY! If you’re looking for gifts for loved and not-so-loved ones this holiday season, check out the HilariAwesome.com store, won’t you? The shirts are all MARKED DOWN FOR THE WEEK to $15. Yes, until Sunday, you can get all your shirts cheaper than before! And the Coffee and Venn Diagrams shirts are back in stock, as is the 28 Parsecs poster (by popular demand!).*
*Should that period go there? I was always bad with punctuation and parentheses which, interestingly enough, is the name of my School of Rock cover band.
This one is dedicated to NextBus, DC’s public transit system WMATA, and the 15% of all busses on the timetables that actually don’t exist when you go to wait for them.
Oh yeah! SPX is this weekend here in the DC area! The Small Press Expo is a pretty amazing show, and performing as part of the Ignatz Awards is none other than SUPER ART FIGHT. If you are going to SPX, be sure to come by the Ignatz Awards and stay for our show! Should be about 10pm and runs about an hour.
If seeing me make an idiot of myself in front of a bunch of comic industry professionals isn’t enough, the show itself is also really great. I always find something new to like at this show, and attend just to walk around every year (though it would be nice to have a table).
By the way, a HUGE THANKS to the bunch of you who donated to help me fix my computer! Together, you raised over $200, which covers most of the $310 bill to get it working again. This wound up being extra crucial, as my job’s pay schedule is screwed up and has left me with no money until October 1, so I actually couldn’t have done it without you (or the help of a loan shark). That custom comic I mentioned is in the works, and when I get my comp back in a few days I will be sure to send it out.
Thanks to all who came to Super Art Fight in DC this past weekend! We had a great show. The highlight for me was rapping on stage. As I mentioned on Twitter, I sang a fair amount of Partners in Kryme’s hit T-U-R-T-L-E POWER. And luckily for you, there’s video evidence:
Comicsgirl also posted what’s probably the best recap of what it’s like to attend a Super Art Fight show. Check out her review here. My favorite part was how she described the commentary. It’s not my favorite because it’s about me, it’s my favorite because I think she nailed it:
Nover, along with fellow host Marty Day, kept the action moving. They have a teasing and affable rapport with each other and are always willing to just keep making jokes. Their reactions are part of what make the show so great — they have the perfect combination of quick wits and bafflement about what they’re seeing being drawn and really pull the audience into the action. (Nover also treated the audience to a rendition of Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap” from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle II. I would love to tell you it made sense at the time — although, it almost did — but mostly, it was impressive he remembered as much of it as he did.)
Unfortunately, it was actually from TMNT 1. Still a great review.
