Everything had changed, everything was strange

Next time: comics.... on the internet!

It seems that lately, the only webcomics I've been directing you towards are the same usual suspects I'm always plugging. So here's a new one (for me): Dresden Codak! I don't even have to tell you why I like this comic. Just look at it! Look at this intense bear chase, or this epic conflict, or this incredible homage to A Lesson is Learned. I can actually feel the author having fun just by reading it. And so will you! (Maybe.)

Magazines

As many of you already know, I work for a pair of children's science magazines: KNOW, for ages 6 to 9; and YES Mag, for ages 9 to 14.

As a designer and illustrator, I get to do all kinds of cool stuff. Mascots, trading cards, superhero comics, Dr. Seuss parodies... there are few things more fun than working on a children's magazine.

And there's few children's magazines as good as these two. Unlike most, they are not full of thinly-veiled movie advertisements masquarading as real articles. KNOW and YES are packed with great original science stories about dinosaurs and robots and bugs and sandcastles and all kinds of other cool stuff that doesn't have line of licensed pyjamas or a happy meal toy.

Anyhow, the long and the short of it is that I'm very proud of the magazines we put out. And I know it's that time of year where everyone is scrambling for gift ideas. So if you know (or are) someone in our age range, check out the YES Mag Online Store, where you can learn more about the magazines and download PDFs of sample pages.

And if you do decide to buy something, enter the coupon code XSL43 when you proceed to the checkout, and you will get 10% off your order. This is a special discount for Sam and Fuzzy readers, which my boss Dave was happy to give me when I asked him about it.

A nice place for midwives and crossing guards

My one-armed uncle gave me a sword for my birthday once!

Today is the last day you can order shirts and books with guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery. If you don't want to gamble by ordering during the "highly probably pre-Christmas" delivery phase, today is your day!
