Robot Commenting

Hey everybody, I hope you are enjoying the Taco story--we're closing in on the big finale soon.

We're doing a little streamlining here at the blog. Stop by and take a look if you follow the posts through a reader. We have a snappy new red robot header.

If you are new to the blog, this story is a Halloween story that has grown out of proportion into the LONGEST STORY EVER on this blog. I don't always do horror stories, but when I do, they go long.

I've been getting a lot of weird auto-generated spam comments lately. You've seen them, long rambling sentences that don't relate to the blog post (or anything, really.) I don't know what they are, or why they generate. They seem harmless, just irritating. Yesterday I got SEVEN!

I've always had an open commenting forum. I like hearing what people have to say, but it seems like I'm getting more robot comments than people comments lately. So I'm now moderating comments. Your comments will now take a bit longer to appear on the blog.

Thanks, and we'll see you on Monday.

Taco Hell Drive Thru p3 24

Skipped day!

Uh-oh! Couldn't get today's post up in time--mark it as a lost day. The story will continue tomorrow.
But you have to admit, 2013 has been pretty good so far, right? I've been maintaining the site like it's 2010! Five posts a week--just like the old days! Woo!

Taco Hell Drive Thru p3 23

Alternate Universe Rapunzel's Revenge Cover

A little while back, the publisher considered doing a reprint of Rapunzel's Revenge--smaller in size, with a new cover. We ended up skipping the new cover, but the book will be out soon in a smaller size. Not as small as the Hazardous Tales books, but quite a bit smaller than the big books that came out years ago.

This means two things: A) You need to track down these adorable new sizes, your shelf will be empty without them! (Both Calamity Jack and Rapunzel will be out in new sizes.)

and B) Time to start hoarding those old, large-sized editions. If you can find them--especially the hardcovers--grab them and put them in your air-tight vault! Because they will soon be rare!

The books will use the old covers. But just for kicks, here's a sketch I did for an alternate Rapunzel cover.

A Little Donner Party Sneak Peek

Last week on Hazardous Monday, the new HAZARDOUS TALES story and cover were revealed. This week, we're showing a sample page! Here are the Reed children preparing for their trip in Springfield, Illinois.

This is a combo-Frankenstein page with panels from pages 8 and 9. Enjoy!

Hazardous Tales #3 will be...

I promised that March would be the month the new Hazardous Tales book would be revealed.

Well, it's March.

Time to get hungry. Hazardous Tales #3 is......

That's right, Hazardous Tales book #3 is the tragic story of the Donner Party. We're not skimping on the horrible details either. The entire journey is covered, from beginning to end. I'm very excited to see the reactions to this story--it's a juicy one!

Out this Summer!
