I hope our alien overlords like coffee.

Eventually, I’m sure the cup will run out. But in the meantime, it’ll be a fun ride.

Super Art Fight in NYC This Weekend!

2014-Brooklyn-08-square-social

Super Art Fight, the live-action art competition* I co-host and help run, is coming to NYC this weekend! We’re doing a show Saturday night at Palisades Bar and Music Hall, in Brooklyn. This is our first-ever NYC show, and we’re hoping it paves the way for many more.

We’re ART-FIGHTING against the College Humor team of artists, so you can come see:

get straight-up taken down to beat-town by the heroic artistic stylings of

I have a DRINK BOUNTY going for the night. If you come, and you tell me you came because of this post, I’ll buy you a drink for every friend you bring. Yes. Really. Bring 3 friends, get 3 drinks. Your friends get no drinks. They are your problem.

SO BUY A TICKET ALREADY HERE »

*Super Art Fight is “Pictionary meets pro-wrestling, where competing artists each round have 25 minutes to cover the same canvas with artwork and win over the crowd with everything they do. Every 5 minutes we spin the WHEEL OF DEATH, random topics that the artists have to work into the artwork somehow, somewhere. It’s funny, fun, and ridiculous. Check out a video of what that can look like here.

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!

The System 555: The Universal Laws of Cats

This was fact-checked thanks to my good friends Spike Jetpack Solomon, Steven Motocross Fluffybutt, Riley Day, and Delilah Whatshername. Yes, they’re all cats. And, while adorable, they don’t give a f*%k about you.

Clearly I now need to make a t-shirt with an adorable cat on it that says “I DON’T CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE.” I may just do that.

Speaking of cats, if you like cats on t-shirts, you may want to check out Professor Internet.

The System 530: How long until the next bus?

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).

Next year. I hope.

The System 529: Days Off

I feel this way all the time. I call it “giving a shit”. Also, this is a pseudo-followup to this comic from Memorial Day a few years ago.

Meanwhile, the other day I made a quick poster and posted an image of it online. People wanted me to make it for sale, so I did! You can now buy it from the HilariAwesome.com store here. Or you can click the image below. If you’re not familiar with the source material, first read this and then watch this (that second one NSFW).

Buy this…

The System 502: The New Holidays

10,000th Tweet Day

Celebrated by: Reminiscing about tweets past. Singing songs like “Auld Slang Syne” and drinking. Silly hats are a must.

Traditional gifts: A new charger/battery for your Twitter-choosing device of choice. Cards should be no more than 140 characters. Sending photos of gifts and well-wishes via TwitPic and yFrog.

AIM Screen Name’s Bar / Bat Mitzvah

Celebrated by: Attending the event where your little boy screen name becomes a man (screen name). Witness as DrkwngDck1245 comes of age as he chats those on his buddy list with the chosen reading from the Torah, or more likely a link to a funny video that’s secretly a way to send your friend a picture of something they didn’t want to see.

Traditional gifts: Skype credits in multiples of 18, or a really nice Wacom pen.

Computer Warranty Expiration Day

Celebrated by: Wearing black, and looking back on the good times. The minute your warranty expires, your computer will start showing signs of age. The only real good news is the older your computer gets, the sooner you get to a new one.

Traditional gifts: A new computer.*

*Send money to systemcomic at gmail dot com.

What new holidays do you celebrate?

The System 414: Backing Up

A special public service announcement from your friends at The System. By the way if this comic looks familiar, it ran as part of an article on ZDnet thanks to Systemic SkawtNYC, who is now a blogger over there. I reformat and sometimes write him comics for his blog posts, which has been great to invite people over to the site. If you’re coming over because of that, hello! Otherwise you should check out his blog here, it’s pretty interesting stuff.

Remember, I’ll be at InterventionCon this coming weekend with many goods for sale. Be sure to stop by my table and say hi, even if you don’t plan on purchasing anything. If you find me at the con, be sure to let me know that you’ve already read the comic. Current readers get free stuff! The secret password is “tacos”.

For that matter, I’ll be on a few events as part of SUPER ART FIGHT which we’re doing as part of the con. The confirmed events so far are our full live event on Saturday and an “after dark” SAF show that night that is sure to be interesting, and R-rated in nature. We’re letting Noguchi use all his 4-letter words, so that will not be something to miss. Be sure to come see those too!
