I'll keep looking for better answers.

Seemed fitting after last night’s presidential debate.

Yep. Long walk to a short pun.

This is what Mufasa meant when he talked about the circle of life.

Next time, we’ll cover the bit about how Twitter is turning into Facebook.

This comic was my last one for the “I Love Charts” collection, which was unfortunately has shut down for the time being. So you can expect a few less charts around here, as I won’t be cross-posting the ones that were premiering on Medium.com.

I did, however, post my full “bike theft” story on Medium as it seemed to lend itself to the format. I’ve been amazed how many people have commented (mostly in person) how much they followed along with the story. So, you can read the whole thing here.

Baltimore Comic Con

That was this past weekend,and it was a lot of fun! I went into the weekend expecting to set up and have a table and sell comics and things, but unfortunately my busy work schedule and lack of stable mental reserves of energy got in the way. If you looked for me at my table, I apologize. I was there both afternoons socializing with the rest of the Super Art Fight crew, but I didn’t have it in me to lug giant suitcases 160 miles round trip and spend every waking moment worrying about selling things. So, like many of you, I spent my “time off” hanging out at a convention. I haven’t just hung out a con in so long, it was glorious! Thank you to all of you who came by and chatted. I even somehow wound up selling 2 books, despite not really having a table “set up” at all.

SPX Next Weekend

SO. EXCITED. FOR. SPX.

Or just a jetpack?

But what’s the real best gift?

This was last week’s Medium chart. Of course, this week’s chart is up now.

If you see Reddit on the road, kill it.

There is only the joke. There is no joke.

Super Art Fight Kickstarter’s Final Days!

We are wrapping up on our Super Art Fight book Kickstarter, and can still use your help! While we have met our goal (thank you so much) we are still looking to make the book bigger and better, and are close to our next stretch goal. If we can raise another (as of this posting) $444 we will be adding an amazing comic about a prehistoric Super Art Fight to the book courtesy of Michael Bracco. You can learn more about it here.

Thank You Awesome Con DC

Thanks to everyone who came to Awesome Con. It was by far the one of the best cons I have ever been to, which is the highest praise I can possibly give to a convention that did not exist before this year. Oh, and it was less than 2 miles from my house, which also made it the most convenient convention I have ever been to. We did our amazing Super Art Fight on Saturday to a completely packed room. I’m finding YouTube vids of it and will post separately in the next few days.

For a little behind the scenes, sales were amazing. The best I’ve ever had at a convention. I had to run home on Saturday after the dealer room closed and bring back more prints and shirts to sell, because I had run out of everything. On top of that the fact that it was so close to home and I didn’t have to pay for a hotel or anything, it was flat out amazing.

I’ll write up more about the show soon, but thank you again to all who came out! As I always like to say, it’s great to put a commenter-name or site visit number to some faces. It’s heartwarming to know real people out there read this nonsense. Thank you.

More Shirts Soon

Keep your eyes peeled to the site because I’m going to be reordering a bunch of shirts that I am now out of over in the HilariAwesome.com store. If you want a women’s shirt in any size, I don’t keep them in stock but am happy to order them for you. Just email me at systemcomic at gmail dotcom with which one you would like and what size and we’ll take it from there.

The System 600: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED SINCE THE LAST TIME WE DID THIS

Like numbers 500400300200 and 100, another recap of what we’ve learned in the last 100 comics. I enjoy putting these together, but they do take quite a while. All the panels are from comics from the last 100 comics. Can you name where all of them are from?

Also, we have something else to celebrate! We also recently passed the four-year anniversary of the comic as well. 400 comics! That’s pretty good, right? That officially makes The System my longest-held job / relationship.

<I’ll insert more words about what it’s like to do 600 comics here soon.>

Anyway, if you want to help me celebrate, there’s a few things you can do:

  • Share your favorite comics from the archive with friends.
  • Comment on posts.
  • Buy prints of any comics you like from HilariAwesome.com, our online store.
  • Buy shirts from HilariAwesome.com, our online store.
  • GET READY to give me more money, because I’m going to be launching a Kickstarter for The System Book 1 in a few weeks. As soon as the book is mostly built and I have a quote for the number of books, it’ll all come together. Stay tuned!

I was going to write something funny, but then someone in the room just said

I need to buy more RAM, right now my state-of-the-art computer (that you guys helped me buy, thanks!) only came with 2GB and FREAKS THE HELL OUT whenever I ask it to do, yknow, things. I’m adding more, don’t worry.

Come see me at Connecticon!

I’m here at Connecticon already! All weekend I’ll be at a table with posters, comic prints, and some shirts from the online store. You should come by and see it! It’ll look something like this:

Also, if you come by, I’ll give you free stuff if you mention you read the comic. It’s that easy. Just say that you read it. I won’t quiz you! High fives are free.

The System 593: Tasks

Based on today’s trip to the Apple Store. Turns out the only thing wrong with my MacBook Pro is that I use it for things.
