Great trepidation

Testing the crosspost with the new blog header (Dru! from Pibgorn).

Last time I did this it posted over 1K times to the Hackenblog. Does it again, no more crossposting from here, alas.

In which case you will never see this again:

Webhosting donations (well, we gotta pay the rent somehow): Continue reading

Yes, it happened. On to November.

And on November 8, 2016, don’t forget to vote for the Democrats. They appear to be our only hope at the moment, God help us.

Have we hit bottom with Trump? Or is there worse to come? I wonder.

Oh well, hurry November.

Webhosting donations:
If you like the quality comics mocking going here, you can help out with the webhosting bill with a donation, if you are so inclined. Donations go right to the webhost, DreamHost, so the temptation to spend it on something else will be nonexistent.

Or we’ll be equally grateful if you send us a PayPal donation (I’m not a snob) c/o The Wapshott Press.

And for superb webhosting, please consider:

For webhosting dream deals.




Thank you!

“Stripped” the documentary

So I went to the premiere of Stripped at the ArcLight in Hollywood last night and liked it a lot. If you’re into comics, syndicated or web, comics history, a man whose job title is Comics Historian (what great job), and where comics might be going, you’ll love all 77 minutes of this documentary. Esquire has more on the subject. (Bill Watterson is having a chatty year; he speaks on tape in “Stripped” and Mental Floss had an interview with him in the December 2013 issue.)

I don’t worry about it too much; Rachel Rosenthal once said that artists will make art whether it pays or not, but it’s nice if they get paid, and I agree with her. I don’t agree with R Rosenthal on many things but I agree with her on that. There was a section in “Stripped” about monetizing your webcomic that made it look much easier than I’ve seen it be, but it does seem possible for some people.

It’s a good documentary; try to see it if you like comics. But make up your own mind of course:

Oh, and I got to tell Matt Inman how impressed I was when he mocked that man who was suing him. As a former legal assistant, I was impressed by that. He said it was the greatest week of his life because he didn’t have to thinking up any comics. He also said the Electronic Frontier Foundation provided seven lawyers for him. Then I was even more impressed.

Weapon Brown revival-rerun-retrospective-whatever it is DON’T MISS IT

WeaponBrownRevivalRetrospective20130122

The greatest homage or parody or something to the golden age of newspaper comic ever to be presented on the internets. EVER. And now you can enjoy it four days a week, that’s right: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, unlike those of us who got updates less than four days a week. Hell, you lucky people can buy the freaking floppies and read them in private or public. You might want to read them in private because you will see things you never knew or wanted to know your favorite and America’s best loved comics characters could do. Really.

So please go take a look at the good old Weapon Brown relaunch. You won’t be able to look away. Like this for example:

Advertising Agonistes (that wacky Key Captcha puzzle!)

Hm, is there nothing that ads can’t be put on these days?

Just a heads up that if you decide to make a witty or agonized comment on one of my witty or agonized posts, there’s a cute little puzzle you have to complete to prove your humanity (as opposed to a bot proving its botanity) and on this puzzle, there will henceforth be some kind of ad. No, I don’t really know how it works or what it will be, but I wanted to let y’all know so no one is confused or more confused or something.
