What are the haps my friends

May 6th, 2011: Even with continental drift, North America and Australia are still in those corners 65 million years ago. Thanks, planet earth! You made writing this comic easy! UPDATE: If T-Rex lived in (dinosaur) Toronto, his map would look like this. Thanks, Martin!

IN OTHER NEWS: The CBC is having a "Write your own Dinosaur Comics" contest, with prizes! I am really excited for this!

AND ALSO: You know what this weekend is? Today AND tomorrow? It's the TORONTO COMICS ARTS FESTIVAL. One of my favourite conventions ever, right here in Toronto, and completely free. You should come! It's so much fun and there's SO MANY amazing comics. I'm doing a panel Saturday at 4:15 with David Malki, Matt Bennardo, Kate Beaton, Aaron Diaz, Chris Hastings and K.C. Green (seriously, that is like an all-stars panel of Rad People) where we'll be playing a non-trademarked version of Pictionary with Machine of Death cards. Should be... AWESOME??

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: you thought it was just a regular thursday didn't you? YOU THOUGHT WRONG. that'll be your epitaph: "here lies [you]: THEY THOUGHT WRONG."
