Elves of Infinite Jest

oh161215Today’s title comes from a commentator over at gocomics.com.  I always give credit where credit is due. Which why T deserves a tip-o-pen for adding stripy to “stained stripy red.” Good, funny change.

Snap, Crackle, Ack!

oh160903Don’t worry, Verne isn’t going to really change. He can’t. It’s a comics rule that characters do not develop. They do not grow. They do not arc. See Peanuts. See Calvin & Hobbes. You want your losers to stay losers. You want your scoundrel to keep on scoundrel-ing. And you want your Hammy to keep on hugging.

Sorry Verne. Them’s the rules.

Breaking the Fifth Wall

oh160229I’ve never actually read Mary Worth. Or Garfield for that matter. Actually, I hardly ever read comics at all these days since we stopped getting a daily paper about ten years ago.

Wait. Did I just type that out loud?

In Bits They Trust

oh131223I have no idea what Bitcoins are all about. Something about virtual currency, laundering money, China…

Whatever.

Fortunately, I don’t need to understand it to make fun of it. I don’t have to be ignorant to write good comics. But sometimes it helps.

Three Heads Are Thicker Than One

oh131219Flying drones delivering packages to my house will have to beware of hawks, owls, vultures and our dog Jack who eats all flying things.  Jack goes nuts every time the vultures roost on our chimney. You don’t want to see what he did once to a Frisbee.

I don’t think Jeff Bezos figured Jack into the design of his drones.

Life on Pause

oh131029Too much of anything is bad. Except for comics. And kid’s books. And pretty much anything I do creatively.  You can’t O.D. on me.

In theory.
