B-DayB-DayMy birthday’s tomorrow (August 4th)! If you wanted to get me something, the best gift you can give is by becoming a Defender or renewing your Defender membership! Since before Kickstarter and Patreon existed, you guys were  keeping this comic a-running and there’s nothing I’d rather do! Except maybe nap. And you guys can’t buy me a nap. So instead become a defender! And THANKS! Happy b-day to me!

Intervention6 is just TWO WEEKS AWAY! August 14-16, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville! I’ve got two panels Saturday morning (at 10 and 11!) and my eldest daughter Leah will be with me selling doodles and doing commissions and raking in the dough like she did last intervention! I hope you guys can come by and us!

We STILL seem to have a RANDOM ARCHIVE GLITCH where clicking on the next comic will take you to the next comic page, but oddly display a comic from a totally different date. Hitting Refresh sometimes helps. We're working on it!

***Fifteen Years of Sluggy Freelance!***


Wow! Fifteen years and still going strong! I can hardly believe it, yet here we are! For the 5th anniversary I did a cool flash animated comic to welcome the return of Zoë as a regular member of the strip, back when Flash was new-ish! For the 10th anniversary I tried to put together a collective celebration of Sluggy Freelance (and in classic ‘me-style’ never got the durn thing done).
So on this 15th anniversary I must admit I’ve been stumped on what to do. No time for flash animations or to put together a collective celebration for you. And the tone of the recent strips sure aren’t “Zoë’s Triumphant Return!” More like “Sasha, how could you?”

So we’ve got the basic standard animated strip, but with color and heart. Thanks to my wife Rachel for coming up with the idea of having Kiki sing “Fifty” instead of “Fifteen” which made me think of how slipups get exaggerated and can totally burn your career in the Olympics …  and there you go.

Whereas accolades are nice, in the end I’ve always let the comics’ quality speak for itself. It seems like it is the only thing in my business that I get right. So I’m not going to go for fanfare* this year.  Just the knowledge that here I am, a decade and a half from where Torg and the gang started, still standing proud, and still feeling very, very lucky to be doing this for a living, and feeling very grateful to you all for allowing me to do so, and still enjoying run-on sentences. Thanks to you all!

*And for the record, if I had time in my schedule I would TOTALLY go for fanfare!

Our 15th Anniversary Celebration Continues!
Yes, I know in this world Torg and the gang don’t have Twitter, they have Bleater. But I always think of these first-comic-parody comics as being commentary on our real-world internet. And how could I get Satan fired over just 12 characters (ala Bleater)? Wait, don’t answer that.
