I am a guest on Comic Book Club tonight! If you live in the NYC area and would like to spend your Tuesday evening watching me and a few comedians talk comic books, well then this is a fine way to achieve that goal. The show is free, and you must be 21 to enter (because it is a bar). If you miss the show, you can catch the podcast! But coming live might get you PRIIIIIZEEES. (some donated by Midtown Comics, some by me. Also my prizes are totally sweet)
Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe #1 comes out TOMORROW, Wednesday November 6th! Jacopo and I worked really hard on this book, and we’re both quite proud of it, so I hope you check it out. Also Issues 3-4 will be coming out EVERY OTHER WEEK. PRETTY LUCKY. Available at your local comic shop, and probably digitally through Comixology or the Marvel Comics App.
Hey that Kickstarter we’re doing for Legendary Showdown is going uh… PRETTY GREAT. As of this writing, we’ve blown past the goal of $15,000, ensuring the game will be funded and produced. As of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $54,000, meaning we’ve already blasted through some stretch goal rewards that I am currently working on, like redrawn cards, new characters and action cards, and a new challenge coin. You can take a look at the updates on the Kickstarter page for more info.
I have to say that Blake at Killer Robot Games and I are both pretty blown away by the INCREDIBLE support that kind folks like you have put in. It’s a really great game, and I’m so happy so many of you are into it! With support like this, we’ve got some sweet stretch goal prizes we’ll be unveiling soon, stuff I wouldn’t have thought possible at the start of this campaign. Keep an eye out over the next couple days! We’re making cool things!
I should also mention I’m doing art for ANOTHER card game, Alteil Horizons. It looks pretty incredible! Take a look.
One final thing: I’m still doing personalized book orders through TopatoCo! We’ll be leaving the sale open until sometime in early-mid December aka: Christmas order cutoff.

Oh my goodness, I am happy to finally announce the Kickstarter for a project I have been working on for QUITE some time now with Killer Robot Games: Legendary Showdown. It’s a card game where you take characters, weapons, scenarios and actions from The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, and strategically deploy them in a game of one-ups-manship (is that how you spell that? WHO KNOWS)
The game is COMPLETELY FINISHED. All we have to do is print it. But printing a card game is EXPENSIVE. And so, Kickstarter. Besides giving you the opportunity to pre-order the game, there are some fun other rewards we’ve got lined up, like a Dr. McNinja challenge coin, and health center informational pamphlets on zombies and Paul Bunyan’s Disease.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the game (like how to play it) please check out the presentation Killer Robot and I have put together on the Kickstarter! I will personally state that I enjoy my prototype version of the game VERY much and make friends play it anytime they come over. I hope you’ll support the project and enjoy your copy as well!

I’m going to be making a couple appearances at New York Comic Con this weekend!
12:30pm-1:30pm: Room 1A08: Beyond the Webcomic Panel with Kate Beaton, Ryan North and Seth Fishman.
5pm – 5:40pm: Marvel Comics Booth #1354 : Signing! I will sign whatever physical object you bring for me to sign. Doesn’t have to just be Marvel stuff.
3pm – 3:30pm: ShiftyLook Booth #1620: Ryan North and I will talk about Galaga, and if you want us to sign stuff after, come up and say hi! Ryan is a very tall man, and I am a bearded fellow who will probably be wearing a blazer. Look for that combo.
I hope to see you there!
PS: The uh… the stuff we’ll be talking about in that panel is exactly why there was no page on Monday. Sorry. Deadlines for EVERYTHING are INTENSE right now, partially due to NYCC itself.
PPS: Don’t forget you can get a personalized book this week!
PPPS: I’ve got something NEW and VERY COOL and DR. MCNINJA-Y coming soon that I’ve been working on for like… a year or two now.

And you can buy it if you want to buy it!
He’s a doctor! He’s a ninja! And now, his earliest exploits are collected in one mighty omnibus volume! Featuring stories from the very beginnings of the Dr. McNinja webcomic, This book offers a hefty dose of science, action, and outrageous comedy. This omnibus presents more than five hundred pages of hilarious strips, some of them long out of print.
WOOOOO!!! LET ME TELL YOU WHAT IS IN THIS BOOK:
1) ALL the comics from Dr. McNinja #1/2 through Punch Dracula.
2) TWENTY FOUR pages of comics that are NOT available online or anywhere else.
3) Alt Text style commentaries written exclusively for the book.
4) An introduction by your friend and and mine, Ryan Q. North.
5) Let me just go ahead and repeat, there are over 500 pages in this book.
And for a limited time (probably a week or two, or up until the point where the task becomes impossible for me to accomplish) I will personalize your book via a bookplate I have designed for just such an occasion. This is also available for the other Dr. McNinja books.
And as a bonus, if you buy these things, I won’t starve! Always nice not to starve.
