My Year in Review I: “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”

NewYearCarson

2013 in Review Part I: Bright Shiny Objects (OR, “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”) 2013 will go down – for me, at any rate – as the year my distraction by Bright, Shiny Objects reached Critical Mass. If the year were a short story, it’d be titled “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal.” If I were […]

Dork Tower – Where Do We Go From Here? A Psychological Selfie.

Selfie

  “First Dork Tower in over two months,” noted one tweet, ecstatically, when today’s strip went up. Boy, oh boy, did I hate seeing that. I never meant to take time away from the strip. But things got busy this summer. Very busy. I mean, like “last five minutes of Iron Chef America, where the […]

Eat Brains, Shiny Venns and My ConQuest Schedule

EatBrainsT

My pal Brett Myers suggested this idea to me, a few years ago. I still love it, and I cry silent but tasty Foodie tears that the folks who make my T-shirts didn’t want to make it an actual, honest-to-goodness T-shirt-for-sale. I mean, c’mon! There MUST be ten or twelve people who are into Michael […]

That’s OK, though.When your job is essentially a glorified version of Goofing Off, every day can be “Take Your Daughter to Work Day.” Still, “Can I be a cartoonist when I grow up?” Daughter, Age 4, will sometimes ask. Making me wonder where I […]

The Path to a Munchkin Pathfinder Cover

Cover2Large

I should be in Hannover, right now, getting ready for the big 20th anniversary party of Hannover Spielt. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. Most of yesterday afternoon was spent at Dane County Regional Airport, watching the weather reports from Minneapolis and Detroit. It made for fine television, really. Much better than watching cable news […]

LUNCH-HOUR FLASH CHARITY! Let’s be amazing!

My friend Michael Webb is one of the finest people I know. Seriously. This is one very, very good human being. The sort of person we all wish we were, particularly when you wake up hung-over. Not that this has ever happened to me. Ever. A good friend of Michael’s runs an orphanage in Haiti. […]

The Munchkin Cavalry is coming!

If you pop over to the Steve Jackson Games site, you’ll notice there is another big Munchkin release this month: The Good, The Bad and the Munchkin 2: Beating a Dead Horse. “What’s this?” you ask. To quote Steve Jackson Games: “A Horse Is A Horse . . . A corpse, of course! The rowdiest […]

EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek at Munchkin 8 – Half Horse, Will Travel

So it’s a relatively well-known fact that I’ve illustrated more than 3,500 Munchkin cards over the last ten years – this breaks down to about a card a day. The latest expansion for the game system is (Drum-roll please: ta-DAH) Munchkin 8 – Half Horse, Will Travel, a brand-new 112-card set, and honestly, I think it’s my favorite […]
