The ASPCA raised hell over this page. It took a while to convince them that, despite appearances, Hartmann is not actually an animal.

I didn't have to write this page of +The Specialists. I just got Luke and Hartmann arguing over the proper pronunciation of "gif" and they took care of the rest.
The battle of manbeast vs beastman continues in this week's page!

I made Luke do this scene ten times. I said it was trying to capture just the right tone for the page, but the truth is that I was just mad at him for taking the last bagel that morning.

The effects look expensive on this page, but you'd be surprised at what you can accomplish with simple forced-perspective tricks.
In this week's page, Agnes turns the tables on Geist. Check it out!

I have high hopes for 2017. Getting back in the saddle with new pages of +The Specialists is a great way to kick things off!

Hey, everyone, check this out! My friend +Cameron Hays is Kickstarting his album of Lovecraft-inspired children's songs. These are a lot of fun for any Lovecraft fan, but they're an especially great way to share your love of the creepy and weird with your kids. (Also, I co-wrote three of the songs!) Give it a look!

Mark is a true "Method" guy. He insisted that we actually dislocate his shoulder for this page. But the lawyers intervened, saying that we'd lose our insurance if we intentionally injured our cast. This was the one time I was grateful to have the suits around micromanaging things.
Geist turns up the heat on both Agnes and Mark, in today's new page.
Also: please note we'll be on hiatus for the month of December, so that we can rest a little and build our buffer back up.
