At long last, I have posted another West of Bathurst book update, complete with an illustration of a steampunk Neil Gaiman. Yes, the book really is almost finished.
Kari Maaren is raising funds for West of Bathurst: Soul-Destroyingly Huge Print Collection on Kickstarter! An enormous collection of the complete run of West of Bathurst, a webcomic about friendship, maple doughnuts, and possibly Satan.

The West of Bathurst Kickstarter campaign has entered its final day. It reached its initial goal on Monday morning and its first stretch goal about forty minutes ago, and it is not completely inconceivable that it could also hit its second stretch goal ($9,500). It currently stands at $8,592. If you've been procrastinating on pledging, this is your last chance to obey the terrible nagging before it finally, mercifully, falls silent.

Thanks for all your support thus far. You guys are awesome.

I've posted an update on my West of Bathurst Kickstarter campaign. It contains brand new material, including a glimpse of the book's front cover and a special WoB "shameless self-promotion" comic starring WoB regulars Elisa and Athar. Now I must desperately go and mark something.
Salutations, illustrious Kickstarter supporters and everybody else everywhere. It is Saturday, and I should be marking, so naturally, I'm writing an update instead. I'm sure you understand.We've reached the nail-biting bit of the campaign where pledges are trickling in one by one and we still have a long, long way to go. We're up to $4,130, or 55% funded. Hurrah!To keep hope alive and burning in our hearts like a beacon made of something eldritch...

Here's my commissioned song about Caitlin Sweet's new young-adult novel, The Door in the Mountain.

Look, everybody:  I am in a contest, and so are a bunch of other geek musicians:  Debs and Errol, Copy Red Leader, Press Start 2 Play, and The Blast Processors.  Also, CBC Music seems to have noticed.  Hurrah!  Please vote for us if you can.  I like voting.  Voting is cool.
 
Looks like there's a geek alliance forming in our #Searchlight competition. Check out the #VoteGeek campaign, and let us know if you see any other alliances forming. Totally encouraged!

The West of Bathurst Kickstarter campaign has ended. We've raised $9,350 and almost hit the second stretch goal (in fact, we came so close, that I'm likely just going to fulfil its terms). Thanks for all your support, guys. You're awesome.
Ladies and Gentlemen:Look at that: in thirty days, we've raised $9,350. We came just shy of hitting our second stretch goal; in fact, we were so close that I wouldn't be particularly surprised if a second month's worth of daily It Never Rains comics turned up at some point.Thank you all for your pledges, your supportive messages, your tireless sharing, and your general awesomeness. This is where the hard bit begins.In the coming weeks, Martin and...

I've posted a new Kickstarter update for my West of Bathurst collection campaign. I believe I forgot to mention the last one here because most of the time, I can't for the life of me remember that Google+ exists. I WANT to remember. I DO. There are just way too many social media sites.

At any rate, the campaign is entering its final week. Please consider supporting it and/or spreading the word. We're at $6,171; we need $7,500.
Most glorious greetings and salutations to you all! Welcome to the West of Bathurst campaign's final week.In this profoundly moving update, I shall urge you to spread the word, introduce you to the guest artists, reveal what a small bit of the book's inside is going to look like, reveal my dastardly plans for world domination, poke fun at my TARDIS-like apartment, which cannot travel in time but can provide a space in which it's possible for seem...

Greetings. I'm doing a Kickstarter campaign to fund my enormous collection of West of Bathurst comics. If you can contribute, you are awesome. If you can tell people the project exists, you are also awesome. If you can't do either thing, you are still awesome, albeit in a subtly different way. Hurrah for awesomeness.

I keep forgetting that I can link my comic here.  Perhaps I should do that.  Hello, everyone.  I have a new comic called It Never Rains; it's been running for three and a half weeks now.  Here's the latest strip.  Hurrah for new comics.
