Just worry about drawing the comic, will you?

As the proud owner of the original artwork for RR's "Four Weenies of the Apocalypse", I'm pleased to see PROFESSOR CHASTE the Weenie Wizard represented in this new strip.

or maybe start marketing these winged-turtle-shell-helmets ?

my eyes are focus groups!

This might also help!

I dig the Fail Whale cameo up in the Bering Sea.

Though, interestingly enough the intro sequence with the plastic tree in the garbage patch is a lot like the intro to the Gorillaz "Plastic Beach" album.

I'm eagerly awaiting the appearance of the Starship Kalakala.

re: Kalakala 
a celebration of flotsam !    
naw, She's parked in the ILK 'verse for now.  No worries, she's in good prosthetic hands!
Maybe I can take her for a spin next 24 hr comic day.

When can I buy an "IKE the potbelly stove! (HERMIT CRAB FIRE DEMON)" Tee-shirt?

by NineInchNachos on 4/12/2012 @ 12:58pm

Is there a difference between Wood, Pellot and Gas stoves in your strip?

by NineInchNachos on 4/25/2012 @ 9:54pm
pot belly stoves are traditionally wood and or coal fired.

So a real cartoon strip, with real recurring characters and everything?  Love the Tacomic, but something more along the lines of a frame by frame serialization style with a cast of characters would be fun to see.  Hope to see more of these soon

i'm drawing another page right now!  tune in tomorrow!

I'd like to see a strip showing IKE the potbelly stove and Iron Lung Kitty hanging out at Wright Park in violation of the park No Smoking ordinance. The two of them had just built a kiosk there so that they could sell water pipes and other theme related paraphernalia at the annual Ethnic Fest. However, unknown to them, the festival had shifted its location. While waiting for other booth vendors to arrive, Iron Lung Kitty meets a romantic interest over at the park's newly built recreation center and spayground. Meanwhile, on the park's upper hillside a uniformed man from 1-800-Got Junk is watching through binoculars, the movement below of IKE the potbelly stove.
