What are the haps my friends

July 7th, 2009: I finished Asterios Polyp last night and was really impressed by it. It's a great comic all on its own, but the way it explores and exploits the medium is what really sells it. Funny and charming and thoroughly enjoyable! It's humorously narrated by Asterios' affable twin brother, who died in childbirth. How is that not awesome?

GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...


Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: i wasn't sure if you could be food poisoned to death, so i looked it up and saw that you could. "oh good" i said, because it made my punchline work, and then i realized i just said "oh good" to millions of deaths throughout history? wow, go me
