Six months ago, back in April, Wondermark celebrated its ten-year anniversary. I didn’t mention it at the time, because I felt it deserved a long writeup of some sort, or some thoughtful reminiscence, an introspective look back at a decade of doing this.

But it turned out to be an incredibly busy six months! Making the Machine of Death game and releasing This Is How You Die, as well as a variety of side projects, have kept me pleasantly occupied.

I felt bad because I didn’t even mark the passing of the anniversary, and then I didn’t come back to talk about it, and now here it is six months later and still, not a peep. But I figure that’s okay, because I am busy. That’s what I want, that’s my goal: to be constantly busy making things.

So the fact that I felt too busy to sit down and write a long nostalgic post about the days when I sat around on my couch and fumbled my way through making a few early comics and posting them online is itself the point. I’ve come a long way and it’s continually getting more interesting. I’m glad to be busy; it’s a sign that things are working.

Still! One thing I want to discuss is this: As you may know, a few years ago I released a series of three books with Dark Horse Comics. They’re lovely hardcover collections of Wondermark strips, each with quite a bit of extra exclusive content as well. The first, Beards of our Forefathers, was even nominated for the Eisner Award for “Best Humor Publication.” How about that!

Well, the hardcover edition of Beards has long since sold through its entire printing, and the second volume, Clever Tricks to Stave Off Death, is just a handful of copies away from doing so as well.

So, with permission from Dark Horse, I’ve reissued both volumes in lovely full-color paperback, complete with a new spot-gloss treatment on the spine:

Beards of our Forefathers – Paperback

Clever Tricks to Stave Off Death – Paperback

And they’re available right now!

If you already know how neat these books are, well, these new inexpensive editions make great gifts. And if you haven’t checked them out yet, I’m pleased to say that for the tenth anniversary of Wondermark, each book is only ten bucks.

Thanks for your support!
