Convention season is just around the corner, a little over one month away. In order to prepare for it, I have ordered some mew products and promotional tools. I have now received my standing banner and flyers!
I am gearing up to get some things accomplished by the time Emerald City Comic Con rolls around in March. I’ll be on the main floor this year and hope to have some wonderful new product to sell. In order to do that I need to make some money for printing costs, etc.
So I’m having a sale! http://chanceofdom.bigcartel.com/
Chance Of DOOM canvas shopping bags are only $10!

Ever since I escaped from the dreadfully boring suburbs and headed out to find a new life, I have forced myself to think “outside the box.” I had to train myself to think differently in art school. I had to think differently to fit into the goth scene, or at least I thought I did.
It’s been 17 years of thinking so much outside of the box that I can’t remember how to think normal. I don’t know how to think like everybody else does. I have no idea how people normally act in standard social situations [I have a difficult time not saying stupid things at parties where I don't know many people, etc.] I have no clue what music most people want to listen to [part of the reason I was never a popular DJ at the club.] I have no idea what makes everybody laugh [Not many people 'get' my jokes, or follow when I say weird things.]
I’m stuck outside the box and I don’t know if I want back in or not.
So for the rest of the month I’m going to make the most Mundane, Normal, and Painfully Obvious choices for the Song Of The Day. And after that, only Wednesdays will have a Song Of The Day attached to them, a song, as always, that has something to do with the Chance Of DOOM strip that gets posted. I’m sorry if this upsets the few of you that looked forward to seeing what I would post. It’s just that it takes a good hour or two away from my drawing time every week to pick the songs, find the videos, get the code, and post them every weekday. I’m sure more people will want to see more comics than just another song. I originally started posting them just so that I would have something to post every day and also to help monetize my websites a bit, but so far it has made me $0. Oh well, maybe when I have more readers I’ll pick it up again.
So enjoy this last week and a half of completely predictable Halloween Songs Of The Day.
Here is Writhe and his Brunswick Hosts Oliver and Olivia
There are a few ways for you to help me keep these comic strips running:
Come see me at conventions. Jet City Comic Show is THIS WEEKEND Saturday Sept. 22nd at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. This will be my first time at Jet City, so help me make it a good one by stopping by and saying “Hello!”
Buy stuff from my STORE. After the Jet City show this weekend, I’ll be doing a quick inventory of Writhe & Shine and Overcast With A Chance Of DOOM! merchandise then revealing the Über Comics Store! Keep watching for updates.
Click on the ads. You may have noticed that there are a few ads on the sites. Whether they are paid advertisements or just links to other comic sites, they all may have something that interests you. The more you readers click on those links, the more traffic is directed to my site. The more traffic I get, the more I get from those paid advertisements. All of that money [mostly only pennies at a time] gets put directly back into MY advertising on other sites, and therefore more traffic…
Buy songs and albums from my Song of the Day links. Every weekday I put up a new Song of the Day and every week I update the Song of the Day Archive. These links go to Amazon.com where you can download the albums for very little money. Every time you use one of my links to buy things off of Amazon, I get a percentage of that sale.
Tell friends, ‘LIKE’ the strips on Facebook, repost them, link to them, vote for me, etc. There are so many ways to send other people to my sites. Only you know the best ways. Talk about them in your blog, recommend them to friends, post them on various sites. Vote for me on various comics rating sites [see my Links page]. Anything helps! [damn, I feel like one of those panhandlers with the cardboard signs.]
So there you go. If you’d like to keep seeing these comic strips, you can help me in any or all of those ways. Thanks!
