December 4th, 2013
My precious website, how I have missed you! I’ve been spending so much time with that dolled-up Kickstarter site that you may think I have forgotten the dirty old whore who got me to where I am. But I could never forget you, my scrappy site. With all the crow’s feet of your coding glitches and your gloppy CSS mascara, you are still the only website for me.
WIDFdotC, you do not have the pizazz of Kickstarter, that Las Vegas casino where the foolish dump their money and their seed into one waiting slot after another. Instead you are the cozy, dingy saloon that lured in so many prospectors over the years to witness the burlesque of my cartoons for the first time. Yes, then Kickstarter came along and gave those grizzled nomads a taste of the big city highlife, but here is to where they will all return. Your warm hooch and player piano ditties (not to mention that soft cot in the pantry) are what make you the place tens of dozens of people call “home”. And though that mean old bank up the street keeps threatening to call in your mortgage, you’ll pull through somehow. You always do.(Thanks to your connections with the local opium concern.)
So… man! I wish I could spend some time swimming around in all my gold coins, but there’s just too much to do! if I though the stress of the Kickstarter was going to end with the Kickstarter, I was smoking too much (or not enough) of those choice green nuggets that the majority of my haul will eventually be spent on! Now I’ve got to mail surveys, compile mailing lists, negotiate prices and hunt Ukranians through the streets of Cleveland (the last thing I expected!)
Suffice to say, success is a nightmare I wouldn’t wish on anyone! Success is a cheap fraud foisted on our culture’s consumer zombies! So send me more of your money and unburden yourself from the chains of success! Let ME take up your sins!!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll just wade in my gold coins up to my knees before going back to my plow.

Well, it happened! A buncha crazy bastards who didn’t realize that they should be investing in gold bouillon instead threw their money down on my craps table. And as usual, the House won!My Kickstarter has been successfully funded
not, as you might have guessed, by a last-minute donation from the Chubb Group, but by viewers like you! The Weapon Brown graphic novel is now going to be a horrifying reality!! I’d like to thank everyone of you for your support, no matter what form it took, and I can’t wait to get this product into every waiting pair of hands!
And there’s even more good news on the way as I prepare this website for the brand new content that will begin arriving after Weapon Brown completes its second run as a daily strip. I am looking forward to bringing back some familiar faces and all new creations. Thanks again to you all for making this nonsensical experiment I call my career possible!

My Kickstarter is in its final hours, and here’s a little pre-celebration “thank you” to you all! This campaign has been a great success, and you are to thank! But that’s no excuse not to give me whatever you have left in your pockets!! Help me end this drive with an atomic explosion worthy of the Last War!

This is a clip from the recent Simpsons episode “YOLO”. Can anyone tell me the name of the song? I know I’ve heard it before playing over images of flowers blossoming and fawns frolicking, but I can’t identify it.

Here’s a shout-out for my Kickstarter from The Outhouse
comic forums. It’s about time I got proper recognition for my toilet humor!

In honor of the “shmoo reveal” in this week’s strips, here’s a loop I created from the infamous “Gimme Pizza Slow” viral meme worm that is plaguing our nation.To me this sounds like the hook to some Easter egg track from off of Odelay!

This Kickstarter thing is starting to feel like a job! Why should I have to work to keep the cash streaming in? Haven’t I already given enough over the years? Nobody told me a job in cartooning would require me to get out of bed before 11AM! I want to talk to the man in charge!
The KS continues to both rock and roll, And although it has not reached dubstep proportions, I feel that it is only a matter of time. I am past $20K, so a NEW short story will now be added to the book! And if things keep trending upwards a hardcover edition is not out of the question! Oh my gosh… I-I feel dubstepping coming on!!
