Hey, Hooligans! I know I've not been on DA much lately. Let me know how you're doing. What projects are you working on? Life changes? Victories? Setbacks?

I got all the formatting on my 2nd book done, finally! It was slowed down a lot because I wrote this foreword bout my personal evolution from being afraid of making political comedy to embracing it this past year, and tying that together with the rise of alt-right racism or white supremacy since 2001. It was a lot of hard work researching things like the Charlottesville riot, the Dylann Roof church shooting, etc... and even harder writing comedy around all that! :faint: But I'm glad I did it. It made the foreword a lot better, and it gave me a much clearer understanding of recent history. :nod:

My friend Mizz-Swagnificent made this awesome gift art from an old comic strip of mine from back in 2012!

Sweet! Here's the original strip I made:

Rock Star! by woohooligan

:new: My friend Lizzy opened up some emergency commissions to get some convention supplies she needs. Check it out!

The keyboard on my laptop is disintegrating and I'll have to replace it (the keyboard or the laptop, not sure which) soon.

That's all I've got for now. I'm just waiting on my books to come in to ship out to my Kickstarter backers and catching up on my social media that I've not been on much lately.

So what are you doing? :D

Hi! I'm Sam and I create Laughter for a Better World! You can help us do that by joining us on Patreon! Or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

I have lots of sources of inspiration, my top three being the Daily Show's John Stewart, Adam Conover and George Carlin. Others include Gary Larson, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: "any man not busy being born is busy dying." :nod:

Hey, Hooligans! I neglected to post an update about this on Thursday. Oops! The Kickstarter campaign funded and hit its first stretch goal at the same time! :D 

But I also have some other cool news! Yesterday, Scott Rosenberg backed the project! 

Scott's an NYT best-selling author, former VP of Marvel and Chairman of  Platinum Studios (Cowboys & Aliens, Hero by Night, I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space). But what you may know best from his work is producing the comic series Men in Black from Malibu Comics, which he signed to the movie deal before selling Malibu to Marvel.


That's so flattering! :D 

In the hours since I published the Kickstarter update about Scott backing the project, we picked up a couple more backers and are just $8 from our 2nd stretch goal! So I published another update to let all the backers know that anyone who pledged at $4 or more can upgrade to the next level to put us over that next stretch goal so that all the $12+ backers will get not just one Kickstarter exclusive print, but all three! 

You've only got 3 DAYS left to get these cool rewards! If you get one of the books, you're getting it at regular price, and all three exclusive prints are FREE! And if you get both books, you also get a free custom art-card caricature! :la:

The final exclusive print is my favorite, this tribute to the very first issue of Captain America, with our Pigasus standing in for Cap, socking old Adolf on the jaw!

This is awesome! It's kind of weird because I didn't expect to need stretch goals at all, but now it looks like I need to think up a fourth stretch goal, since it looks like we're likely to hit the first three. But it's so cool to have this project exceed all my expectations!

Last 3 days to get in on the action! :la:

Keep on rockin' it, Hooligans!

Captain America Tribute
Hey, Hooligans! This is day 5 of our Kickstarter and we're already 2/3rds funded!

Yesterday I finished up the 2nd of two images I'm presenting for backers to vote on what they'd like for the Kickstarter exclusive print & desktop wallpaper. The first is a parody of the Rosie Riveter poster with Grumpy Cat. This 2nd one is a tribute to the very first issue of Captain America, on the cover of which, Cap punches Hitler. It's some interesting history, and you can read more about that in the 2nd update on the Kickstarter.

Have an awesome weekend!

Hey, Hooligans! Great news! :D

I relaunched our Kickstarter this morning and we're already 48% funded! :la: Just one Kickstarter Exclusive Print or $8 gets us to 50% funded in the first day! (EDIT: 55% by the end of the first day -- 2/3rds funded by day 5!)

Thank you all for all your support over the years, it really means a lot to me! :D


EDIT: This Captain America tribute is one of two extra images backers are voting on (along with the cover) for the Kickstarter exclusive print & desktop wallpaper. For more background on the Captain America cover and info about the voting, check out our 2nd project update.

Woohooligan vol 2: Laugh It Forward
Hey, Hooligans! My newsletter subscribers and patrons helped design this cover for our next book! :D

Our Kickstarter launches tomorrow, Tuesday, May 15th!

Here's the project URL:

EDIT: After a little under a week, the project is already 67% funded! :la:

Trivia: the blind justice character is named Themis and she is not a god, she's one of the titans. Also, she was never blind -- that's a modern addition. Though to be fair, there's not really a singular translation of what Themis means in English. It does mean "justice", but it also meant "will of the gods", which wasn't necessarily just, merely what the gods decided. So somebody getting their comeuppance like Tantalus was Themis, but so was getting crabs or dying of tuberculosis for no particular reason. ;P

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Themis

Also, scholars of Greek mythology will tell you, the Greeks were pretty fascist in their thinking. If you were strong or beautiful, it was only because the gods loved you, and therefore you must be "good", because you were beautiful and strong. And of course conversely if you were ill or had deformities, that indicated that you were "bad" and the gods were punishing you for it. This lead to a pretty awful culture for anyone who wasn't beautiful and strong, though it also lead to some funny anecdotes, like the time a prostitute won a trial by flashing her boobs to the jurors and saying, "obviously I'm good and the gods love me if they gave me these!... If the tits are legit, you must acquit!" ;P

Sure thing! I'd be more than happy to discuss art tips, cartooning and whatnot with you. It'd be a great conversation.

I've been having some health issues with my blood-sugar, but I have an endocrinologist appointment at the end of January, and I'm not letting it get in the way of planning my Kickstarter in March! I'm also going to use that campaign to help promote some other friends and creators. :D
