CHRISTMAS: If you want totally awesome Dinosaur Comics clothing to arrive in time for Christmas, you have to order soon! If you're shipping to a non-US address, we can't promise Christmas delivery anymore - but there are gift certificates! And if you're shipping to a US address, you should order before December 17th.

Also! New in the store and pictured above is the A Wizard Has Turned You Into A Whale hoodie that is warm and huggable and awesome, which coincidentally are properties I'm sure are also shared by the person you may want to buy it for!!


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!
