News from Chrispy! Listen up!



If you took at look at today's Precocious, it's pretty easy to know where this Copper Road came from! It was a good enough bit of silliness, so how could I resist illustrating Kaitlyn's little trick? Vote here to see the new comic!

And, no, I'm not really familiar with that franchise... nor do I actually understand how it's played on a Wii U. I've never seen a Wii U in action. I'm not concerned about accuracy here. (My full experience is choosing a certain character, learning to turn into a weight, having the weight make the character fall to its death, and having people sigh and change the game we were playing so I would stop embarrassing myself.)

(First off, DC-area people should look for me (and my books) at tables E10 and E11 this weekend at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD!)



Once again, I went to bed last night before the update happened - and once again doing so meant not being around to do comic work when it was needed! There is a bonus companion joke to today's comic, and you can see it by voting for Precocious on Top Webcomics!

This started out as a the alt text joke, but mirroring Bud's speech is part of the humor, so I had half of this comic already done! Why not go ahead and finish it? The master recruiter would have wanted it that way.


As the time is upon us, this is moved from the post below to up here! DC-area friends, you can find me at the SpiderForest Webcomic Collective table at the Small Press Expo in DC! (Well, Bethesda.) Find me with the cool kids at tables E10 and E11!

Since it's a crowded table - lots of awesome SpiderForest books for you to buy! - I'm just bringing my books and the strip #1000 cast post cards for sketching. SPX peeps will get a small bonus sketch in every Precocious book they buy, though! Buy multiple Precocious books, get goodies! Buy my book(s) *and* a book from another SpiderForester, get more goodies!

With a bunch of us behind the two tables, and my health *still* being problematic, I might rotate out from the table for stretches this weekend. (I prefer hanging out at the table, though, so I'm fighting!) Keep watch over my Twitter feed for updates!

(By the way, while my internet situation may be dicey during this trip, a new bonus comic is scheduled to go up this weekend!)

Quick rundown, for those with low attention spans:

-Vote here to see the new Copper Road comic!
-The epic Precocious/Curtailed crossover reached an amazing end! Go read it!
-I'll be at SPX in DC, Sept 13-14, at the SpiderForest tables, E10 and E11!
-Oh yeah, I reached 2000 comics. And I updated comic 1000 into a cast poster!


EXPANDED NEWSING: It's the first of the month, so a new Copper Road is here for your enjoyment! Vote here to see it! Also, since it's the first, that means the Copper Road archive was updated with last month's comics, starting here. (The bonus Precocious comics from last month can be found here and here.)

The new comic is another one taken right from my life. Read it, then imagine me answering the door and finding the woman brought her young daughter with her.


I hope you've been reading along with Curtailed! Every week, Mandy and Fox have surprised me with a new epic Precocious crossover! I cannot thank her enough for this incredibly experience. If you want to re-live the glory, start here. (And if you click the "previous" link on that page, you see the guest strip I made for Curtailed!)


So, I hit my 2000th comic a couple days back, and that's kinda a HUGE DEAL - but I had to spend the day in bed after re-aggravating the injury that took my August away. (You know, it turns out you need your hip to do JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN LIFE. This has really sucked!) So here I am celebrating it now! Wanna rock strip 2000? How about celebrating it with strip.... 1000?  I reworked that fancy comic with the post-1000 characters for an 11x17" poster! Don't like that? Look around the store for art cards, charms and the Precocious books!  (Yes, I know there's already a banner on the front page for this, but I have a LOT of doctor bills piling up, since I'm super broken at the moment.)
Please don't block my ads! I need them to live!
