We’ve seen fan art. But have we seen fan art of a photograph put in a frame and then arranged on a table made to look like it belongs to the character who owns the photo? Jackson Ferrell is hardcore, yo. So here we have a photo of Ethan and Amber at their prom night, all parties involved totally straight so far as they know, resting in a frame on Amber’s desk of homework and recreational reading. Sweetness.

Hey, you guys! Randomfanboy has taken it upon himself to enlist a bunch of folks to do voices of characters from Dumbing of Age and then marry this audio to panels from the comic! You know, because he’s awesome. This project is called Dubbing of Age, because, duh, and you can follow his and the voice talents’ progress on the Dubbing of Age YouTube channel.
It’s pretty damn amazing. Check out a teaser below, featuring 50maidsofgray as Joyce and I-don’t-know-who-can’t-find-a-name as Dorothy!
Hey, who wants a sweet Dina poster? If that answer’s you, then check out “Rarr!”, which is an 11×17″ piece of work printed on glossy cardstock. There’s also a wallpaper option for you, too. Check out the store page for details!
And I’m finally putting Dumbing of Age Book 1 in the store. I’m not done sending out the Kickstarter orders, but Halloween’s over and so I figgered I’d throw it up in the store anyway, what with it being Christmas shopping season now. I’ll just have to start mailing out new and old orders concurrently. (I’ve got about two-thirds of the Kickstarter orders in the mail so far, which is twice the number of books I’ve ever had to mail out before. Woof! It’s keeping me busy!)
Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University and the setting of Dumbing of Age itself, will be my location on October 5! (That’s this Friday.) I’ll be signing Dumbing of Age books at Vintage Phoenix Comic Books from 5-7pm! I’ll bring a stack of them with me, of course, plus probably a few Shortpacked! book 1 reprints. If you live in or around Bloomington and wanna come meet me and maybe get a book or a sketch, I’ll be there!
I will eat at Mother Bear’s Pizza or I will die.

Hey, some of you may know Josh Fruhlinger from his daily newspaper comic strip commentary at Comics Curmudgeon. Well, now you can also know him from his United States President Slash Fic Blog, Hail to the Slash. Josh commissioned art from me for the title! I have provided the too-hot-for-blog extra slobber version to the left. The full and final version of the graphic can be seen at the site itself, of course, as well as lots of stories about Presidents sodomizing each other.
I am still cranking out the 100 “Crisis” poster orders! I have approximately 75 of them in the mail. What complicates things is that this is also the week that my three literal tons of Dumbing of Age book 1 and Shortpacked! book 1 reprints arrived! (See top image!) And so I’m also working on those at an equally furious pace. I will probably have… 100 of them ready to go out the door to the post office on Monday? That is out of roughly 600 orders, so please bear with me. Those first 100 are from the folks who didn’t ask for any extras, since I wanted to get a huge chunk of them ready to be mailed as soon as possible — you know, to get some feeling of immediate accomplishment. Just throwing books in postage pre-paid envelopes and slapping labels on. It’ll be much slower going once I hit the international orders and folks who pledged for sketches.
So I’ll be keeping busy for a while. And probably be rewatching a lot of DVDs while creating more stacks of enveloped books like the ones on the right.
A week from Monday, on September 10, I will have been doing webcomics for fifteen years. Dumbing of Age will also be celebrating its second birthday! To celebrate this milestone, I have put together a limited poster! Suffice to say, it’s the busiest thing I have ever drawn in my life.
A while ago, Joel Watson was all, hey, you should do a parody of Superboy Prime punching the universe and all the pieces scattering into the Walkyverse and the Dumbiverse. That’d be a poster you can do. And it was a fine idea, but it wasn’t “all-encompassing work of horror” enough for me. I needed something that would take me a month to complete. And so I’ve parodied a different, better crisis instead.
As a result, every character who’s ever appeared in one of my webcomics is in this thing. I poured through my own archives day by day, grabbing folks to squeeze in here. Some of them are pretty in your face. Some may be less obvious, but still pretty easy to find. Some may be essentially unrecognizable mostly-obscured heads in the background. But they’re all here. And there’s both Walkyverse and Dumbiverse versions of everybody. (You can probably tell where the split in the composition takes place.)
It’s an 11″x17″ slab of cardstock gloss craziness, and there’s only
50 100 of them. I’ll number and autograph them all. If you want one, here it is in the store.
UPDATE: I woke up this morning to find I’d sold seventy of my fifty posters, so, uh, I just ordered a second 50.
UPDATE AGAIN: They’re gone! Sold out in 23.5 hours. Woof!
