Hey folks, today's guest strip is by Rebecca Clements who puts the fun into fungus with her comic KinokoFry. Take a LOOK!
Also Boxcar Comics has done their first podcast! I wasn't able to get involved in this one, but it seems like a lot of fun, and I hope I'll be able to call in in future. Take a listen!

Ok, I think things are close enough to fruition to reveal what's going on - the project I'm working on (which you can see a snippet of a few entries back) is for a new children's comic called the DFC, which is launching at the end of May. I've spent the last 2 weeks at home, finishing off my first 11 week storyline (I say finishing off - I have been working every night this week, and still have two more to colour) and I've surprised myself with how non-crappy it's turned out.

Today's unimaginably excellent guest strip is by that master of the biro, Nobby Nobody, creator of the tentacle-tastic comic Odd Fish. Go read it, and marvel at the cross-hatching!

Sorry for late upload/incomplete colour/lack of unfeasibility - time was not on my side today. For those wanting to know just what it is that is screwing up my update schedule there is a CLUE hidden somewhere in this comic! WOO.

Hi! An early update this week, and today's excellent guest strip is by Kevin Forbes, the creator of the creepily brilliant Simulated Comic Product. Thank you Kevin!

And so our tale reaches its poorly thought out conclusion. Hurrah! Next week I hope to feature a comic without a polar bear in it. Here's hoping!
And this episode marks the half way point to the devils own comic: episode #666! Significant!

Ok, so it looks like there is more to this story than I thought, so actually it is going to conclude next week. I really am just making this all up as I go along - does it show?
Also I'm pleased to announce that Boxcar Comics (an excellent collective of super-talented webcomic creators that I am a part of) is re-launching as a new super-powered version of it's old self. There are going to be podcasts! And jam comics! And a creepy guy in the corner with a pipe! Oh wait that's me.

Sorry folks, I know updates have been very patchy lately, and this is a step in the wrong direction, but I really will finish this storyline next week. And I promise the reason for all these missed updates will be revealed in May. Hang in there!
EDIT: it looks like the preorders for the new neurosurgery t-shirt aren't going that well, so if you want to order one I suggest you order as soon as possible because you might not get another chance!

Yesterday I went to a science talk about ampakines (yes, I go to science talks in my spare time. I am that cool), and it was really interesting in an intensely creepy sort of way. See ampakines are smart drugs, that is, drugs that make you smarter. They gave them to a rat and it was able to learn patterns in half the time it would take a normal rat. They then gave the rat some more and were able to teach it things that it is not possible to teach a rat. Yes, they created a super intelligent (and almost certainly evil) rat.
