Heeeey, this ‘Naming Rights’ thing has promise… What if you guys woke up one day and were reading “WalMart Presents Greg Cravens’ comic strip, “Buying Stuff Is Fun” brought to you by MeUndies” one day? Ooooh, all that WalMart money, and corporate humor, filtered through committee… what FUN!
Welcome to the second freebee extra cartoon this week. In case you read at a fixed time each day and skip days that I don’t usually post new cartoons, a couple of taps on the ‘back’ arrow button are in order.
What I’m doing with the new cartoons, I think, is trying to clear my conscience a bit. I’ve owed you guys some extra consideration for a while now- since before I put up the Patreon Link. I thought I’d feel better about asking you guys to pony up a buck a month or more if I kept up a little better with previous hat-on-the-pavement events.
I tell ya, back when I first started, I was hoping that ads on the site and retail partner ads that ran in the oldest of the product review posts would pay the way for Hubris. I’m old school enough to be a little queasy asking you guys to do more than just enjoy the site. On the other hand, y’know, life. So there’s a Patreon link and a tip jar link and the sort of ‘new economy of the web’ stuff. I’m pleased and proud that I have readers who’ll pony up to keep Hubris happening.
And Patreon is about to give me my first list of Patrons, so I can send out your incentive goodies. If you’d like to Patronize Hubris, now is a great time to commit to a couple of bucks or five per month, so I can send you some goodies too.
Now, go outside and play, for heaven’s sake.
If you can’t give your Professional Opinion in good conscience, how would you feel about giving your Opinion of Profession? Oops. Too late. Lowell offered his Fact of Profession. Never mind.
More importantly, here’s an extra cartoon for you this week! I’ve owed you guys a couple of extra for a few months, since some folks hit the Tip Jar a while back. Sorry it took so long. The windup to this story arc has been building for a long time, though, and since the scripts were writ, and the art got done (somehow) you get TWO new freebees this week. And MY conscience is better.
Well, here’s the next news for you Team Hubris folks- The pages for the Great Stanky Creek Outdoorfest are finally all laid out. I’ve got 22 new comic strips left to draw up to complete it, along with a few spot illustrations. The Patreon Patrons will get first crack at autographed copies, and after that, you’ll have to meet me at some of the Conventions to get yours. I signed up for the big Charlotte Heroes Con in June. And I hope to have lots of goodies for anyone who can come out and play.
I admit to dragging my feet on the book- knowing it would take a lot of time to get together all the old notes (and new ones) about the new strips, and then finding a largish block of time to draw up that many really got under my skin. Now that the layouts are done, and I can sort of see where things need to be plugged in, I think we’re back on track. The book following the Outdoorfest book will come along a LOT quicker.
For those of you who have pledged on the Hubris Patreon Page- Patreon doesn’t run your cards and tell me what’s what until the end of the month. So the goodies are coming, but it’ll be early February- just so you know.
