Captain Jibidy 107

Today's episode is here. I just can't get enough of that Spider-Pirate. And neither can Jibidy.

Mar 29, 2008


Turns out that I'm not quite caught up enough to keep up with the three comics a week deal. I'll have the next issue up on Monday, and see how much I manage to complete over the next few days.

--I finally starting watching the new Battlestar Galactica. I'm not hooked yet, but I'm about halfway through season 1 and so far it's really interesting. Certainly nice to watch something smart while Lost is on a mini hiatus.

Captain Jibidy 106

Today's issue is here. Pete deals with the revelation of Billy's identity. Poorly.

New Jibidy up tonight

Seriously. As soon as I get home. Look for it.

Captain Jibidy 105

Monday's strip is up here. The mystery of Billy Fang continues to unravel. For more on the twist at the end, look to Wednesday's #106. My apologies for the partial lego nudity. (if that doesn't entice you to click the link, I don't know what will)

--I'm not a vegetarian anymore! I'm super excited and have already managed to consume beef, turkey, chicken, and pork in the last 36 hours. Gross, right? So much for the 12 pounds I lost over the last six weeks.
--I picked up the new Gnarls Barkley album on Friday (The Odd Couple), but I've only listened through once or twice so far. What I've heard I really like.
--Finally saw Cronenberg's Naked Lunch. Maybe the weirdest movie I've ever seen. And I've seen some weird stuff.

Junk Whisperer

I'm just about finished with my novel, The Junk Whisperer. It should available in early April. Anyways, I just read this piece of dialogue. And it made me laugh. If it makes you laugh (out of context, of course) maybe you should pick up the book when it comes out.

Thad also thought that little people were funny, but mostly when they weren’t trying to kill him. Thunk! Another throwing star hit the mailbox. “Sonuvabitch!” it exclaimed.

“He's about halfway across the yard, can you shoot the dwarf or something?” Thad asked.

“Oh, so now you’re ok with me killing people?”

“It’s self defense!” he exclaimed. "I’m not exactly giving you permission to go on a spree at a convent.”

Captain Jibidy 104

Read Friday's issue here.

It's time to learn a little more about Billy Fang.

It's that time of year again!

This still may be my favorite YouTube video ever:

Captain Jibidy 103

Wednesday's strip is up here. It features a gag I've wanted to include since I first saw the commercials for the Simpsons movie. Plus, does Marlo know The Lumberjack?

St Patty's Day

Go Irish and all that jazz (just not Notre Dame). I did a St Patty's day Jibidy back in 2005. Monty Python fans will hopefully notice an homage to the "What have the Roman's ever done for us?" speech from Monty Python.

Captain Jibidy 102

Read Monday's episode here. Will Marlo crack, and let the boys stay with her?

Don't forget, three new strips this week, so come back on Wednesday for #103.

Mar 12, 2008

Captain Jibidy 101

Read the issue here. I'm sure Marlo is going to love the idea of Jibidy and crew crashing at her place.

No comic this Saturday, but check out three (count 'em) issues of Jibidy next week. 102 drops on Monday, 103 on Wednesday, and 104 on Friday.

Which way to the smash bros kegger?

Captain Jibidy volume 1 now available!

That's right, all you piratical aficionados, strips 50-99 - featuring the full daring rescue and escape of Captain Jibidy and his crew from homicidal robots and vicious vikings - can now be a real live book for your coffee table, magazine rack, or comic book long box!

The book is available through the new ahoy-matey bookstore:
You can order a full color print book there. I know it's a little pricey (hey, color printing isn't cheap!) so there is also a handy Adobe pdf version available for download. How much does that cost? What if I told you that I'd give it to you for three low payments of $0.00! That's right, the electronic version is free.

Why are you still here? Go get the comic! And check out Captain Jibidy #101 on Wednesday.

Captain Jibidy 100

Read the comic here. As you'll see, it's high time to get some much needed estrogen back in this comic.

In related Jibidy news, stay tuned to this blog for information on how you too can own your very own copy of Captain Jibidy vol 1. (A print collection of strips 50-99)

In unrelated music news - I've been experimenting a bit with itunes lately. I usually play new music to death and I decided to mix it up a little bit and sort my library by "last played", start at the bottom, and listen to all the music I haven't listened to for years (in some cases since 2004 or 2005). Here's a sampling of the gems that have cropped up:

Don Henley - End of Innocence
BNL - If I had a Million Dollars
Saliva - Click Click Boom
Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow - Picture
Defuser - Karma
Pinmonkey - Barbed Wire and Roses
Ja Rule - I Cry
Leeann Rimes - Can't Fight the Moonlight

I've got NO idea why these songs aren't on high rotation. Seriously.

New Jibidy coming Saturday

#100 still needs a little work - look for it this weekend.

Roundup - some good, some not

1. Brett Favre retires (ESPN) - Favre has been my favorite footballer as long as I've loved the game. Here's another great piece about him. We'll miss you Brett.

"Brett, we miss you already" (Also ESPN)

2. The co-creator of D&D passes away. I hope he was aligned lawful good. (CNN)

3. Liev Schreiber actually looks like Sabretooth (Page6)

Captain Jibidy 99

See it here: Captain Jibidy 99

This is a direct carry over from the last issue. So the line of dialogue at the top is the Consultant speaking to the Red Ninja. Anyways, that finished Volume 1 of the story. I tried to make 50-99 a pretty complete, kind of contained story. I hope you enjoy it. I decided the cast is a little too big, and some get lost in the shuffle. So, the next volume will be shorter (likely 100-125) and will focus on Jibidy, Pete, and Billy. Volume three will feature Jake, Lou, and Steve. Think of it as the Blue and Gold squads. Or not.
