Email + RSS feed errors now resolved

If you’re reading this on an RSS reader, you probably noticed a bunch of old posts pop up today! There was an error in the feed. Be sure to read the latest comics in order, oldest ones first! (Or catch up with the entire sick elephant saga, now concluded, by starting at sickelephant.com.)

If you’re reading this via email, my guess is that it’s going to be a VERY LONG EMAIL with several weeks’ worth of comics you never received. Be sure to start from the bottom of the email so you read the comics in order (or catch up on the site).

Sorry for this extra trouble! The problem should be fixed now.

If you’re reading this on the website, you are a very good person to still visit independent websites! I hope you continue to. HOWEVER, just for the record, this is a good time to refresh everyone’s memory as to the different ways to subscribe to the comic:

Get a daily emailwondermark.com/email
Twitter feed for the comictwitter.com/wondermarkfeed
Twitter feed for me personallytwitter.com/malki
Facebook page for the comicfacebook.com/wondermarkdotcom

All of those get you all the comics (although of course with social media you’re more likely to miss some, thanks to “the algorithm” and Facebook’s business model of bottlenecking).

I have a Tumblr too (irregularly updated, though I did just post a couple good ones) and of course I also post various things to Patreon.

If you have some other way you’d like to see the comics — some way of reading comics that’s popular now that I don’t know about — you can contact me via any of the above things! (Or leave a comment on this post.)

(I’ve already squatted the Instagram and will start posting there once I find some elves who can break all the old comics into individual square panels for me.)



Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

Here are a few of the Roll-a-Sketch drawings I did for folks at Gen Con earlier this summer! (Click the images for a closer look.)

TERMINATOR + BAT:

Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES + OWL:

Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

RACCOON + MAID:

Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

UNICORN + GRADUATE + PAINTER + SITH LORD:

Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

I’m pretty fond of this last one, I gotta tell you. But lest we think there’s only one way to do a unicorn artist:

UNICORN + PAINTER + NERD + PEANUTS:

Roll-a-Sketches from Gen Con!

I have it on good authority that this is the original version, and Rockwell just cribbed from it from the past somehow.



It’s the FINAL DAY for the book Kickstarter

I’ve been crowing about this for a while now, so I assume you know about the Wondermark book Kickstarter already if you’re interested!

Here’s just a final reminder that the campaign ends FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2 at 4pm Pacific. UPDATE: It’s over now! If you missed it, you’ll have another chance to pre-order a bit later.

(And you can pledge for a digital copy for just $6 if you don’t need or want any more physical books!)

It's the FINAL DAY for the book Kickstarter

You’ll still be able to get the book later, once it’s printed and we receive actual copies in hand, but the money we raise during this period will determine how many pages the final book will have.

I’m pleased to announce that with less than 24 hours remaining, we have broken the $20K stretch goal, and now the book will be (AT LEAST) 140 pages long!

It MIGHT even get longer still, if we can break $22,500 in the final day. Which could happen! UPDATE: It did! The book will now be 144 pages long!!

We ALSO broke the 400 backer count goal, meaning now every order will ship with a sheet of word balloon stickers, so you’ll be able to correct or amend any bad punchlines that accidentally make it into the book.

The sticker sheet will come with a selection of both blank balloons (so you can write your own punchline), and also some handy pre-written punchlines for general use anywhere. I think it’ll be a pretty useful item.

That’s it! The Kickstarter will end tomorrow, and then hopefully we’ll get back onto something like a regular schedule around here with comics. The endless sick elephant saga of ’18 will conclude in two final dramatic episodes next week!!
