Huge thanks to my pal Charlie Bates for a tremendous guest week, as I work on the Tao of Igor Kickstarter (wait – WHAT?)! Check out his fantastic comics at DevilBear.net, and follow him on Twitter at @Batesian!
Hey! Dork Tower has a Patreon, that makes all this happen! Check it out, why don’t you?
“Where’s John?” UK GAMES EXPO EDITION: I’ll be in Birmingham, England’s NEC this weekend. I believe I can be found at Booth #1-D18. There will be a giant Greater Than Games banner hanging from the ceiling. I *believe* signing times are 10 am and 4 pm, but I’ll try and just hang around in general […]
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, of if you are a Dork Tower Patreon backer, you may have seen the Infinity Dorks art I drew, and that Brian Effing Patterson colored brilliantly! It’s Free Comic Book Day, May 5th, and to celebrate the Dork Store will be giving away 4×6 Infinity Dorks prints […]
Had a couple’a crummy days, to be honest. At work, anyway. To be fair, on a number of levels, 2018 is a dumpster fire atop a tire fire, teetering on a toxic waste dump. Which is also on fire. This was a professional setback that I hadn’t expected, though. The phonecall came Wednesday night. Short story […]
Mail! We get mail! Got a question you’d like to throw my way? Drop me a line, anytime! Or send something to MUSKRAT MAILBAG, Box 45063, Madison, WI 53744. (Hint: candy is dandy). Hi John, Apologies if you get a lot of questions like this. For your Illuminati card drawings were you given a lot […]
Twenty-five years ago, today, I went on most amazing first date of my life, with Judith, who I had just met two weeks earlier. It was incredible, filled with joy, wonder and laughter, as – over the course of a sunny Saturday afternoon – I began to realize how amazing this woman was. We’ve had […]
We had some flooding in South central Wisconsin, last week, and Casa Muskrat was hit. We’re safe, we didn’t lose much of anything, and all is dry now. Still, lugging the contents of an entire basement to another floor is Nature’s way of telling you, “you’ve got too much shit.” (Also “hey – I bet […]
Hey, gang! Several updates, a few of which I should have gotten to weeks ago. Weeks, I tells ya! PATREON AND ON Next Wednesday marks the one-month anniversary of the Dork Tower Patreon’s launch. Frankly, it’s been an amazing few weeks. It certainly took me by surprise, particularly as we began smack-dab in the middle […]
My friend – many, many people’s friend – Stephen Toulouse (or, as pretty much the entire world knew him, Stepto) died, last October. Stepto being Stepto, he had already managed to cheat Death once. One-for-two is a far better average than most of us will ever know. Those couple extra years the world had him […]
This morning I was playing around on my iPad Pro, with the Apple Pen and Click Studios. Here’s something the likes of which you’e probably not seen me do, before. I did it all in one layer, which was probably a mistake. But I like how it turned out, and I continue to be wowed […]
