Honestly, if you can't make a pun out of a set-up line like that... Bear puns are gimmes.
Alright! Weekly updates are a go! Maybe they won't all be ten panels, though. That... that's actually a lot of work.
Also, if there are any errors in my representation of the Canadian legal system, I apologize. I pretty much based it all on the cancelled CBC show This is Wonderland.

Fun News! I've managed to kick the winter blahs with the help of a friend I call "Vitamin D Supplements", and am feeling ambitious enough to aim for weekly updates to this blog. So yes, look for new comics here every Tuesday. Hang me if I'm lying!
Well, I've been trying to track down one or two comics that I know are missing from my archive, but have had no luck so far. Does this mean the end for this comics journal? Nah, I'll just make some more. On that note, here's a new comic:
Hey, sorry for the delay in getting this one up, it's just that the only jpg I have of it on my computer suffered from irregular cropping of the top border (you can see it there), and I have been unable to get photoshop, which used to function so well for me, to load, so I couldn't fix it. I was hoping some solution would present itself, but it didn't, so here's the comic, warts (and by warts I mean "irregular cropping") and all.
There's actually a pretty good story behind this comic, too. Every so often, I have a dream where a comedian dies. First, it was Gilbert Gottfried, and I had to break the news to my parents, who didn't even care. Next came the Stephen Colbert dream, as presented above. A while later I had a dream where Louie Anderson's rotting zombie corpse visited me in the middle of the night and accused me of not caring that he had died, and my having to admit to him that I really hadn't given him much thought since "Life with Louie" was taken off the air, and hadn't even heard that he had died. Finally, and quite recently, I had a dream where Amy Poehler had died in childbirth and we had a global day of mourning. After each of these dreams, I have checked the internet to make sure that they did not come true, and so far (and fortunately) my prophetic powers have demonstrated a 0% success rate!

Another Delay followed by a comic. Don't you just love it? I wrote this one while I was dealing with a lot of English essays, and there may have been some bleed-in. See if you can guess how!

No update yesterday? I must have been sick. In fact, I still am sick today, but it's not the focus of my life anymore. I'm probably on the mend, so no worries! Anyways, here's a comic that makes no sense:
This is pretty much taken word for word from a conversation I had with my sister, except for the end. That didn't happen. I'm still alive.

What is this comic? What does it mean? Perhaps it simply is. One thing is for sure: if we could all pretend that the "ciAPs" in the third panel read as "CLAPS", it'd probably help it out a lot.
This is another good "layout" comic. Fun side note: the real life person on whom the foil character in these comics is based complained about how I drew his nose so much that I finally changed it in this comic. Also, if you want something fun to do as a cartoonist, design a character who only exists to be sketchy and beaten up. Hours of laughs!

Another later Empty Spaces. By this time, I had about a month to work on each of these (thanks to the monthly releasing of MONDO, now at www.mondomagazine.net
) rather than a week, so I had a lot more time to decide the layout, work on the artwork, etc. I had been drawing frost gremlins in the margins of my schoolwork for some time, so it was good to finally put them to use.
