I’m subscribed to the Kindle Daily Deal emails from Amazon. Every time I get one that mentions a book I want - which is rare, but does sometimes happen - I go check my library. If they have it then I go write down what it would have cost me to buy it for the Kindle and check it out from the library instead. When my “saved Kindle money” reaches $20 I go make a donation to the library in that amount. I feel like it’s a good tradeoff.

Thank you all for your kind words about Graveyard Quest’s ending. We will see a physical release of it eventually, just not this year. Next year. Definitely by next TCAF at least.
Friday I announced that I’m starting up a new comic: an adaptation of the original Pinocchio story! It’s gonna be good. Starts up on Sept 15th, right after SPX, which I will be at with Topatoco.

PATREON! + BACK! + STORE!

IDW PUBLISHING’S TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES COMICS ARE THE TMNT COMICS YOU’VE WANTED SINCE 1989
By Chris Sims
Listen folks, I want to like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a lot. I have a huge amount of childhood nostalgia caught up in those characters, and as an adult, I can recognize TMNT as arguably the single most successful independent comic book of all time, a cornerstone that paved the way for a revolution of creator-owned books that continues today. I want them to be good, but there’s so much of it, spread across so much media, that it’s hard to figure out what to get into if I want something that’s going to live up to those high hopes.
Fortunately, Comixology celebrated the release of the latest Ninja Turtles movie with a sale on the current run of comics from IDW Publishing and gave me exactly the opportunity I was looking for. Since I had only heard good things about those comics — and since everyone I asked about them told me to just get it all — I took the plunge ad bought up everything they had, and I’ve been spending the last few days reading through. And seriously?
It is good. It’s, like, X-Men in the ’70s good.

I concur. The new series is better than the original ever was.

denniebright did a garf, roboch did a garf, SO YOU KNOW WHAT HERE I DID A GARF TOO.  It’s the first thing I’ve ever animated that I spent more than 10 minutes on so hurrah!  I want to color it but I really don’t think I’ll have time.

Bossk (Bounty Hunter) 38 figures(1980) KennerMerchandising Is Forever

Merchandisingisforever has now covered my two favorite Star Wars figures (Snaggletooth being the other), and I could watch the paint and color variations on their tiny faces all day.  It’s my new favorite thing on the internet, tied for first place with that deer-attacks-hunter video that I love so much.  Do the world a favor and go say hi. 
Also, Bossk’s eyes are kind of hypnotic.  If I commit some kind of vintage-Star-Wars-related crime in the next couple of days, inform the authorities that I was acting under the influence of 38 Bossk figures when I did so.

Clayface.
Talking with friends last night about the upcoming DC movies, I was saying it would have been interesting if they’d built their franchise villains-first. A bunch of horror movies or monster movies featuring characters like Clayface, Man-Bat, Parasite, Cheetah, Killer Croc, focusing on the villains’ tragic backstories and revenge plots, with the heroes playing a limited role and only really showing their stuff during the climax. Twenty minutes of Batman at the end of “Dark Knight: Clayface” but OH how you’d be anticipating those twenty minutes. Some mega-villain and a few pawns show up across all the movies to tie them together, and then, when you’ve got four or five under your belt, you’ve got a good roster of villains ready for a Justice League film. 
I dunno, I hate superhero movies anyway.

I’d pay to see that.
