The System 506: Office Forecast

This started as a joke about how hot it is outside and cold in most offices, and then turned into this. Steve’s a jerk.

The System 503: Breaking Routine

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.

The System 498: Infinibox

I was going for a kind of “Ouroboros of inboxes” vibe with that third panel. Pretty happy with it actually!

For those feeling like they can relate, check out this other comic I did about Sisyphus. Or, for that matter, this one on THE EMAIL PROCESS. What can I say, I have an Existentialist streak in me sometimes, though lately I’m thinking Stoicism is more my jazz. Funny since I don’t know how many Stoics would really go to a Coltrane show…

So in other news, I’m going out of town! For the next two weeks, I will be out of the country visiting the UK. While I’m not going to any sort of desolate lands (except Wales) you can expect little to no interaction from me in the meantime. That doesn’t mean the site won’t be updating, as some very kind people have provided guest comics via a last-minute plea on The Twitters. I hope you enjoy them, but if you do or don’t, you can expect more comics from Rosscott as well as the epic 500th comic upon my return on June 9th (though per our update schedule, June 10th).

And while this might not be clear, ALL HILARIAWESOME.COM ORDERS BETWEEN NOW AND JUNE 9th WILL NOT SHIP OR BE PROCESSED UNTIL MY RETURN. Feel free to order, but be aware that I can’t ship things while I’m gone, and this is, for the moment, a one-man operation.

The System 458: Forgiveness

Or this:

As you can imagine after yesterday’s largely successful collaborative comic/chart, it’s been crazy over here. Something about having the chart posted yesterday show up everywhere on the internet has made me a bit busy, so I’m sorry for the delay posting this comic.

When so many people come to your website for one comic, and then you have to do the next comic, it can be tough to know where to start. Sorry this isn’t a chart. Or can haz cats. Or be about artist attribution. But it’s still instructional, so I guess there’s that.

Behind the scenes, expect more going on around here as I try to desperately keep all you new lovely people around on the site, and thanks so much for reading! And you regular Systemics? You know I love you.

The System 451: Tips For Success (Suits)

This comic was written as part of a collaboration with my good friends Lindsay and Marty. I can’t say for sure which one of us wrote it, let’s just say we traded off words. Lindsay does amazing coffee-themed tote bags, wallets, belts and other such things. Marty does the nerd news blog Blast-O-Rama. Both are worth a click.

Add this to a mental list of Hired to Fired: The System’s Tips for Success.

What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever taken a conference call? One Systemic has already mentioned a graveyard. Can anyone match / top that?
