What are the haps my friends

February 5th, 2007: Dinosaur Comics is four years old today! I put the first comic up on February 1st, 2003. That is insane and awesome and I can't thank you guys enough for supporting me. Here's something I like to link to February 1st: the first Dinosaur Comic I ever did, before GOING BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD. Things to notice:

  • there is a different panel layout
  • Utahraptor looks like a frog?
  • T-Rex looks evil
  • there is a spelling mistake
  • It took me 8/10ths of a comic for me to realize how terrible this layout was
It is a window into an alternate, crappier universe. Thanks for reading my comics for four years now, everyone!

Also whoah, check this out! My friend Posterchild made a giant T-Rex stepping on a tiny woman stencil! That is extremely excellent. Thanks Post!

FINALLY, you probably heard about the Mooninite thing, which echos the Mario blocks thing that Post and I were involved in last year. I will say that what I find most frustrating is the police and media's labelling of events like these: calling them "hoaxes" or "pranks" when they're neither, they're ads and art, respectively.

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!
