We Stopped Not Making Comics Again!

Dear Reader,

Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! We have a new comic up! And after a long and elegant courtship, we've partnered up with Topatoco to sell it and many other comics as beautiful ALILBTDII prints!

I'm also working on a Kickstarter this month for a video game called SCALE where you can suck the size out of one thing and shoot it into another! We've raised a very generous amount of money. But, as of writing, we are still a fair distance from our funding goal. So any help supporting the project or spreading the word is much appreciated. In the game, you can do neat things like enlarge the moon to flood the earth and travel by boat.

I also post comics here every two weeks or so. And I'm working on some other projects that will be announced soon on teen news services tumblr and twitter.

Several ideas on how to start this post

Another year, another rumination on death and aging from your favorite internet funnymakers.

This year, we bring you another rumination on death and aging by us, the internet laffmen.

A year has passed since our heralded return, I NAME THEE ANNIHILATOR!. It was universally hailed as one of the greatest episodes of A Lesson Is Learned. From this creative apex we could only fall, limbs uselessly flailing, into the abyss of relative mediocrity.

Greetings, readers! We hope you had an enjoyable year. Please enjoy this fresh cut of

Welcome, readers! Are you sitting comfortably? Did you know that sitting for very long stretches can be damaging? Remember to get up from time to time and pace around the room. Remember to first pick up your toys off the floor or you may be injured. Do not play with badly-made toys, as they will snap off and lodge

Cowabunga, dear readers. It is autumn. A season of mugs and cardigans. I hope you will savor this latest A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible. The script is very well-written. I am pleased with how it translated to comic form. It is funny and also makes you think about things. Please hold it delicately.

Today we have begun selling prints of our comics through Topatoco.com. We are very pleased about this. We have wanted to do this for a long time. Topatoco is great and sells many fine things from many wonderful creators. Jeffrey Rowland was extremely helpful in setting up the shop, sharing his insight and tailoring it to our requests. Thanks also to David Malki for getting the ball rolling. We appreciate you guys.

More episodes will find their way to the shop sooner than you may suspect. Let us know if you have a favorite you would like to have in your own home.

Have you seen the Scale Kickstarter? Dale is writing the story for this wonderful game, Scale. In the game, you can change the size of things, very dramatically! Like make a house so small you can put it in your pocket (I do not know if they have implemented pockets as a concept but it would be pleasant to be a mouse in a safe woolen pocket). I urge you to take a look. They have about a week left to raise the rest of the money they need to make the game. If you are a fan of comics, you may like the $65 tier, which offers a Scale art print by the estimable Aaron Diaz, KC Green, Dale, or me.

As for me, I’m spending most of my time working with writer Tevis Thompson on my first graphic novel, Second Quest. We've been posting updates about once a month. Even if you didn’t back the Kickstarter, you’ll be able to buy the book when it comes out next year.

If you’d like to stay in touch, follow me on twitter, tumblr or facebook.

Be exultant to each other.
