Did you know that talk like a pirate day is a thing that people celebrate? It is! As luck would have it, next week is 2017's talk like a pirate day on September 19th. In honor of this most ridiculous celebration, I will be releasing 3 comics that week on a M/W/F schedule. This will give me the ability to try out and showcase a quick story in a mini serial format. In the meantime, to whet your appetite I will leave you with my favorite pirate joke:
What did the pirate's hook and pegleg cost him? An arm and a leg!
Manners are always important, whether you're in the locker room or not. Hope everyone had a relaxing holiday weekend this Labor Day; the panel I was a part of on Friday at PAX West went better than I could have hoped. The panel Hosts kept the audience engaged and firing drawing prompts, and the artists all seemed to have a blast with an evening of just doodling for fun. The people I talked to over the weekend who had been able to catch the panel all said it was enjoyable, and I'm very happy that this type of improv art seems to be accepted.
If you weren't able to catch the panel on Friday or didn't attend PAX West this year, we will (hopefully) have a video of the panel up in the near future. Pray to the audio AND visual gods that everything was recorded correctly. If that's something that might interest you, feel free to follow @PP_AfterDark or @Dino_Timecop on Twitter or any other social media for updates on that release.
Temporal technology is a tricky business, but luckily the Dino Timecop Force Science Division is there to help pick up the pieces when things to wrong. In this case it's several trillion pieces but hey, who's counting?
As a final reminder, I'll be at PAX West 2017 this weekend and I'll be on a live Let's Draw panel this Friday with some other terrific artists! If you're attending the convention and have that night free, I encourage you to stop by for an hour of fun. We even have some panel exclusive swag giveaways.
It's important to have goals in life. Even if they're shallow beyond belief, they're at least a destination that you can reliably measure distance to. I do hope however that unlike our dino heroes, your retirement aspirations don't involve eating your co-worker's family.
This week is very special as it breaks with the standard release schedule so I can bring you two guest strips by some of my very talented artistic friends. Like I said last week, we'll get to see some truly unique interpretations of what it means to serve on the Dino Timecop Force with a focus on the character of Frank. And if you still don't remember who Frank is, you can catch up on the origins of the myth, the stego, the legend himself right here.
Keep your eyes open for these guests strips on Wednesday and Friday!
In all honesty I've never actually been to an event in which this particular projectile launcher has been utilized, but it seems like a thing that would either be terribly fun or terribly tragic. I mean, I'm pretty sure that the entire concept is incredibly dangerous which is probably one of the many reasons you don't see them that often.
I actually had a series of comics featuring the net gun, and I was contemplating waiting to release them in November and call it Net-vember (heh). Upon further reflection, there are really only so many ways that net guns can be funny, and I got cold feet at the prospect of delivering an entire month's worth of net themed humor. Plus, I didn't want to field any questions or statements about how Net-vember isn't a real thing.
