#751; The Beast in the Labyrinth

This is not a guest comic! East Coast weather has played havoc with the airlines, so a weekend trip to Massachusetts has unexpectedly turned into a week, and I’m still not at home where I can access my computer. Left without my database of weird images, my choices were to scour the web for something usable to make a comic…or do something a little more fun. I’m staying with Jeffrey Rowland at the moment, and while he doesn’t have shelves full of Victorian books like I do, he most certainly does have art supplies and a scanner. So I drew and colored this comic for you! I’m sure our regular players are fervently hoping that this mysterious new character doesn’t find his way back into the normal strips…but who knows?

THIS WEEK: San Diego Comic-Con!

THIS WEEK: San Diego Comic-Con!

It’s time once again for Comic-Con! This year I’ll be sharing the TopatoCo booth (#1229) with old pals Sam Logan and Kory Bing.

I won’t have the newest Wondermark collection there — it’s not quite finished being printed — but I will sign a sticker you can take home and put in the book when you do get it! Or any other book you own, or whatever!

I’m not doing any panels this year, so I’ll just be at the booth the whole time, staring quietly into the middle distance until someone calls my name three times with increasing sharpness. Hope to see you there!



Video: The Last Spaceplane

Here’s a Wondermark puppet animation that I made a while back but never posted online for some reason!

It is an ACTION STORY about a SPACE EMERGENCY.

It was written by Zach Sigelko, and performed by Zach and myself:

THE LAST SPACEPLANE

Over on Patreon I’ve posted a link to an enormous folder full of more experimental puppet videos that Zach and I made!

The above was basically the culmination of this period of experimentation. The archive videos chronicle the early beginnings of our efforts as they gradually grow more refined.

Zach also guested on the latest episode of Malki on the Mark, in which we discuss these puppet videos, and why we made them, and so on.

It was chatting with Zach for this podcast that reminded me that I never really posted many of these online. So thanks, Zach!

I was pleased as punch to be invited to yammer for an hour on ComicLab, the making-comics podcast hosted by my pals Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar.

Here’s a direct link to the episode on their site! (And on Overcast.)
