Happy Hug Your Cat Day!

I'm more of a dog person myself, but since I'm a huge fan of Gemma Correll's work and it's Hug Your Cat Day (not a joke — click here if you don't believe me). I think you should stop everything you're doing and go hug your cat. Don't have one? Go find a nice cat, then give it a soft, humane squeeze. After that, click here for more funny cartoons from Gemma. Right meow!

Cartoonist Will Wilson, creator of the Ordinary Bill comic strip, is getting married! His marriage proposal is certainly one of the cutest I've ever seen. Watch Will propose to his girlfriend via his comic strip (while secretly filming her)! I'll bet you can't make it through this video without a gigantic smile on your face.

 

 

 

 

CONGRATS, WILL! We wish you and that beautiful fiancee of yours the very best!

Attending Heroes Con this year?

If you're one of the lucky ones attending Heroes Con this year, stop by the Team Cul de Sac booth (AA-630), and don't miss these fun events:

 

SATURDAY, 6/8 @ 11am
 

Room 206: TEAM CUL DE SAC

Eisner-nominated Chris Sparks started Team Cul de Sac in 2010 to raise money for Parkinson’s research.  In honor of Richard Thompson, the Reuben award-winning cartoonist of the daily strip, Cul de Sac, Sparks assembled the book, Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson’s.  The team continues to fundraise through book sales, auction items from cartoonists and the annual HeroesCon Drink and Draw event.  The panel features Chris Sparks talking with TCDS contributors Steve Conley, SL GallantDave McDonald,Craig Fischer and more!  See it, then stop by their table and see some of the items they’re auctioning off this weekend, including the rare Bill Watterson signed copy of The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, and an Art Spiegelman signed and sketched edition of Maus!

 

 

SATURDAY, 6/8 @ 3pm

 

Room 209/210: MEGA MUSIC PANEL: “And Brainiac on Xylophone”:
On the Intersection(s) of Comics and Music 

Comics and music share a lot of affinities—both depend heavily on rhythm and intervals, and many cartoonists are also musicians—and cartoonist Ben Towle and blogger Craig Fischer have organized a diverse smorgasbord of a panel to explore these affinities. Ben will discuss the many ways cartoonists represent music visually, and will chair a wide-ranging panel on comics and music with Peter Bagge (Hate,Yeah!), Ed Piskor (Hip-Hop Family Tree), Andrew Robinson and Vivek J. Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle). Craig will talk about the work of Marc Weidenbaum, an editor, teacher and musician who’s been combining comics and music in his creative projects for over two decades. And Charlotte avant-duo Ghost Trees (Brent Bagwell on saxophone, Seth Nanaa on drums) will participate in two live comics/music performances, including a soundtrack for Joe Lambert’s “Turtle, Keep It Steady,” a rock-n-roll retelling of the Tortoise-Hare fable!

This is not a pipe. This is not a halfpipe. This is not a tattoo.

Leci-n'est'pas-une-pipe

 

The image above is a photo of a famous painting called, The Treachery of Images by Belgian artist René Magritte, painted in 1928. The writing "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" translates to "This is not a pipe." Now, as you can see below, this piece has been fairly inspirational around GoComics. Check it out ...

Rose is Rose Snow DAY!

To those in the midwest- Be SAFE!

Rest In Peace, Pauline "Dear Abby" Phillips

Dearabby

 

Today is a very sad day for the Universal Uclick family. We are mourning the loss of a brilliant woman. The original "Dear Abby," Pauline Friedman Phillips, passed away at the age of 94 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's disease. She passed her advice column on to her daughter in 2000, and it continues to be the mostly widely syndicated column in the world.

 

Rest in peace, Pauline "Dear Abby" Phillips. Your legacy will live on.

I miss Scrubs.

Shout out to all the funnies/Scrubs fanatics in the world! Last night I was enjoying my nightly Scrubs fix, and totally geeked out a little after watching J.D. and Turk reference their favorite comics. Man, I miss those nerds. Check the clip below.
