Every Monday, Wednesday Friday
In the Dorm known for being the "artsy" or "music" Dorm, the Lobby can become a horrible place. It's now infected with legions of Gothic freaks!
Greetings, loyal readers, I have a great annoucement to make!

The first Printed Collection of Dorm Dorks, "Dorm Dorks: Primordial Soup" Is now available for order!

If you go to www.indyplanet.com you'll see me listed under the "New Products For October" section. Or you can jump straight here to look at the cover, and some sample pages!

Of course, if you'd rather by the book straight from me, you can do that too, and if you do, I might just put a free personalized sketch in the front, cause I love you so so much.

I'm super excited about this! Remember, tell your friends, go to www.indyplanet .com, or just click here to order the coolest comic strip ever!

If you want to buy direct from me, keep checking this site for announcements about my upcoming convention appearances, and also, I'll be putting some buy buttons around here as well, so you can buy a personalized version through the web. But for those of you who live far, far away, feel free to go ahead and order the book from Indyplanet. Thanks!

Day Job

Please allow me to get long-winded and philosophical for a moment... You see, the dream for any of us cartoonists is that one day, we can quit our day jobs, wake up when WE decide, and spend all day long doing the thing we really love: making comics. To be able to say that we make comics full time is the most glorious thing we can dream of achieving.

Recently, Kris Straub, the creator of one of my favorite webcomics of all time, was lamenting on his blog recently about how, after several years of being a full time cartoonist, he was having to take a day job again to keep things afloat. Now, sometimes these things just happen, and there's nothing you can do, and it doesn't mean that Kris isn't one of the top cartoonists working right now (he is in my opinion, anyway).

I just realized that a lot of my readers might be unaware of the greatness that is Starslip Crisis. So I wanted to point you guys in his direction. Head over to www.starslip.com and spend some time browsing the archives. If you're feeling especially generous, check out his store--he's got a wide variety of awesome products to check out. So help a cartoonist out. If you like his work, help him continue to live the dream.

Of course, I'd be lying if I didn't encourage you to feel free to help me out here at Dorm Dorks, if you're so inclined--that's why there's a tip jar, and of course, the first print collection. But I'd rather you get hooked on Starslip, like I am. It's one of the things I look forward to most each day. Just remember, the power you have as a reader is incredible. So use it wisely, and make Starslip Crisis a part of your day!

Rumblings of things to come...

My apologies for anyone who has had difficulty getting the site to work lately. I'm actually in the process of something very exciting (I think) and should have something to show in the next few weeks, but what I was working on caused the site to be down for a few brief periods lately. All should be good, now, though, so enjoy the comics and stay tuned for some cool developments!
