Built to resist, mother@#$%. December 4, 2008 Posted by Mookie
After six years of making a comic on the internet I finally broke down and decided to swear in it. I also happen to find the concept of foul-mouthed clergy very funny. Besides, if you've been reading the comic this long and have tolerated all the gore and other violence, I don't think one little swear word is going to change your opinion of me or the strip.

For those of you who like a soundtrack to comics, I urge you to listen to "Built (To Resist)" by Grip Inc. when reading today's comic as well as yesterday's. Not only do I think it's a killer song, but it's very appropriate.

The real world is bleak enough these days as it is. My webcomic doesn't need to add to any of that, even if it seemed like I was going that way for a little while.

Now excuse me while I try my hand at being a real businessman again...

Ahem.

Don't forget that the THREE VOLUME HOLIDAY SPECIAL is still going strong in the SEER'S CATALOG. This is a limited-time offer so be sure to get your order in so it'll arrive in time for the holidays!

That's all from me for now.
Rock on, motherf@#$ers!
Strictly Commercial like Frank Zappa. December 1, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I certainly hope everyone had a lovely and gluttonous holiday weekend. I certainly did. My family stuffed a delicious tofurkey down my throat and my chocolate (tofu) cream pie was a rousing success. I'm still digesting it all. Mmm.

I made the nearly fatal mistake of going Black Friday shopping with my girlfriend and her mother the next day. It was executed with such military-like precision that it got me in the mood to make a holiday shopping announcement of my own... only without the precision and organization of my girlfriend and her mother.

You can now order all three volumes of Dominic Deegan from the SEER'S CATALOG! You have the option of ordering all three separately or taking advantage of a limited-time holiday bargain! It's the holidays and I'm feeling festive, so head on over to the store and see if the Three Volume Holiday Special tickles your fancy! If not, then I'm sorry I tickled you. I know some people hate that.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on!
Happy Tofurkey Day! November 27, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I hope you all have a wonderfully gluttonous holiday. I will be stuffing my face full of tofurkey and my home-made chocolate (tofu) cream pie. Mmm!

The comic will resume on Friday.
Take care and have a happy holiday!
In which I whore out myself and my friends. November 24, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Just a heads-up that there won't be a comic up on Thursday, which is Thanksgiving day for those of us in the U.S. We'll all be busy stuffing our faces and thanking whatever god we pray to that we can still stuff our faces. I will be gorging myself on a tofurkey. Don't knock it until you try it.

ECSTASY & EVIL will be back in stock just after Thanksgiving. I'd been telling folks at conventions that I expected the shipment to come earlier, but there were some miscommunications with the printer and the major holiday does tend to screw with regular shipping. I'll be updating the SEER'S CATALOG next week along with a special holiday deal for buying all three books at once.

Speaking of updates, the LINKS page has been updated with a couple of new webcomic links as well as another fan forum! They all get my stamp of approval (whatever weight that may carry) so be sure to go check 'em out! I must admit that I found the "Boom De Ah Dah" strip slay particularly endearing.

I also find it worth mentioning that my buddy Garth Graham has launched a new webcomic called Finder's Keepers. I've had the pleasure of seeing this project develop from its black-and-white infancy to the full-color beauty it is now. This promises to be a great urban fantasy tale and I can't wait to see where he goes with it.

Also worth mentioning is Absinthe Junk, a band that just happens to feature my dear friend Juno. She's a multi-talented lady with a killer ear for good music and her band's original music is just as unique as she is. Do yourself a favor and give Absinthe Junk a listen.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Delayed blast webcomic! November 20, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Sorry for the delayed update, folks. The internet was down at my apartment all night and it only just came back up. Many thanks for your patience, as always.
Seeing "the gray" like Dominic. November 19, 2008 Posted by Mookie
The reason there's a gray tone to all the panels in today's strip is because I scanned this in on my father's computer and the settings for his scanner were all but alien to me. I'm visiting my parents for an afternoon and will scan today's comic again once I'm back at Mookie Headquarters later today, where I will make it look all "proper."

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
I don't FEEL tardy... November 18, 2008 Posted by Mookie
November's absurdly late Donation Wallpapers are up for your approval and, with luck, enjoyment. My apologies yet again for them being so late this month. As I said before, I have no good excuse for the delay.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled splatter.
Rock on.
Picture Pages! November 17, 2008 Posted by Mookie
What's the time? Pict-chah-time!
Ahem.

I'm still getting the hang of my fancy new camera and these pictures are but a sampling of what I've been able to do with it so far. The following photos are from NEKOCON, my cats lounging around my apartment, and this past weekend's anti-Proposition 8 rally in Boston. I took a crap-load of pictures and not all of them came out terribly well, but these small few are the ones I feel comfortable showing off, even if they aren't all that wonderful.

NEKOCON 2008
My thanks and love to everyone who came to say "hi."
Detective Quilt!
Barnet!
Thumbs up, baby!
Barnet again!
Peek-a-boo!
Dominic!
Aww! puppy-face!

MY CATS
They have come to hate my new hobby.
Scamp
Rascal

GAY RIGHTS RALLY IN BOSTON
There were a ton of great and clever protest signs, but these were my favorite pictures.
What a crowd.
The simplest sign says it best.
Supporter with flag.
I love this poster. Period.
Portrait of a supporter.

I'll be posting more photos as I get better with my fancy new camera. That is, if you folks are interested in that sort of thing.

November's absurdly late Donation Wallpapers should be up tomorrow or Wednesday. I really have no (good) excuse for this ridiculous delay.

That should be all from me for now.
Rock on.
It's one of the seven deadly sins. November 14, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I want to say that I have a perfectly good reason for not putting up November's Donation Wallpapers this week, or for showing off pictures from NEKOCON or for not doing any of the things I said I was going to do this week. I want to say that there were some extraordinary circumstances keeping me from doing so...

...but the truth of the matter is that, aside from updating the comic, I just had a lazy week. Blah.

I will definitely have news on the restocking of ECSTASY & EVIL next week, along with all the stuff I said I was going to do this week. I'm a bad Mookie.

Oh, and if you're of a particularly political frame-of-mind I may be attending this weekend's protest of the passing of Proposition 8 in California, which will be one of many across the country. Since I live in the Boston area, you can guess which one I may be at. Come on out if you feel as strongly about this issue as I do.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on... blah.
Made it. November 10, 2008 Posted by Mookie
NEKOCON was a blast but it left me absolutely exhausted. I was, however, able to get today's strip done so there wouldn't be any crummy Monday-after-the-con filler. With the exception of Thanksgiving there aren't any other planned interruptions for the remainder of the year.

As I said, I'm beat. I'll have a convention report up either tomorrow or Wednesday, complete with pictures (taken with my fancy new camera). I'll also have updates concerning the restocking of ECSTASY & EVIL, November's Donation Wallpapers and some changes to the strip come 2009.

But that's all for later.
Right now I'm going to recover from my last convention of the year while you folks hopefully enjoy some more splatter.

Rock on.
Last but certainly not least. November 7, 2008 Posted by Mookie
If you're reading this I'm off to NEKOCON for the weekend. It's my last convention of 2008 and I hope to close out the year with a bang, so be sure to stop by and say "hi" if you're in the area. I'll be hanging out with the usual peanut gallery and maybe you can help us cause some more mischief.

While I'm gone the strip will update much like today's comic, as a one-panel strip. I did three of them to cover my absence and with any luck you fine folks will find them satisfactory while I'm gone. Sunday's will be particularly eye-opening.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on, and I'll see you at NEKOCON!
In my (not much of a) defense... November 4, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I think this came across clearly in today's comic but I feel the need to clarify something just in case.

Garrit's argument of "I only hit you once..." isn't much of a defense at all and neither he nor I are saying that only hitting your spouse once isn't abuse. He was just trying to make it clear that he only struck his ex-wife once and not repeatedly. He's not proud of it and neither should anyone who indulges in any form of abuse, physical or otherwise.

I have discovered that it's better to apologize on the side of caution when it comes to the internet.

I also forgot to mention that November's Donation Wallpapers ought to be up after I come back from NEKOCON this weekend. One may be necromantic. One may be splattery. In either case I do hope you like them.

That's all from me for now.
Hope to see you at Nekocon!
Rock on.
It's the final countdown! November 3, 2008 Posted by Mookie
The big news to report today is that I'll be heading down to NEKOCON this weekend. It's my last convention for 2008 and I'm hoping to end this con season on a high note. I'll be there with the usual swag and I think I'll be doing a couple of panels. Stop by and say "hi" to find out!

The strip should update while I'm gone, even if they are three one-panel comics... splattery or not.

ECSTASY & EVIL ought to be back in stock a short time after Nekocon. I'll keep you folks posted as to any developments concerning shipment dates and all that.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Closing out Halloween weekend... in Hell! November 2, 2008 Posted by Mookie
He's baaaaaaack.
Although it's anybody's guess what he's trying to say in today's strip. I have no idea, either! He wouldn't tell me! The Infernomancer is a very mysterious guy, after all.

All kidding aside, I feel compelled to give the same warning I always do whenever The Infernomancer shows up around here.

Things are going to get splattery.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
Happy Halloween! October 31, 2008 Posted by Mookie
Normally I hate doing unannounced filler like this, but I'm feeling unusually festive this year and the spirit of this spooky holiday just got me in a stranglehold.

So I do hope you folks can find it in your collective hearts to forgive me while I get into costume and wish you all a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
