Today’s Extended Weather Forecast Comes From Phil the Groundhog

Far from your average weatherman, today’s weather report stars a very special guest!

 

Making just one appearance each year, on February 2, thousands of viewers anxiously await the verdict of one furry woodland creature, as he comes out of hibernation to predict the weather for the remainder of the winter. His name is Punxsutawney Phil, and he is the official groundhog of Groundhog Day.

 

With a home in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Phil has burrowed his way to fame, starring in political campaigns, sporting events, Hollywood movies – even popping up around GoComics!

Despite his massive stardom and undeniable cuteness, Phil has one flaw: His shadow only has a 39% success rate. So, whether you’re a fan of the cold or praying for spring, just know that Old Man Winter ultimately has the final say!

5 Reasons We Love Sundays

Sundays are loved for many reasons, but as a comic fan, the first day of the week really only means one thing: Sunday Funnies!

 

Though we have many hilarious features updating as many as seven days a week on GoComics, there a few cartoonists who save their sillies for one special day. After a full week of eager anticipation, we cherish Sunday’s arrival because with it comes a fresh dose of 5 of our favorite funnies:

 

1. We love to check in with FoxTrot, and find out what latest shenanigans Jason and his siblings have concocted.

Meet Your Creator: John McNamee (Pie Comic)

MYC_blog_header

 

The GoComics “Meet Your Creator” series brings you firsthand insight into the lives and careers of your favorite cartoonists. Each week, we hand over the keys to one of our talented creators, who share their inspirations, achievements, creative processes, studios and more! Read on to hear from this week’s featured cartoonist: John McNamee of Pie Comic.

 

 

Pie Comic by John McNamee

 

 

Hey there, Internets. John McNamee, creator of Pie Comic here. GoComics asked me to introduce myself to y’all and tell you a little bit about myself. That’s what’s happening now.

 

In the beginning ...

 

The comics page was really big in my house. I remember my dad and I having a kind of fantasy draft for what our dream lineup would be. He always took Mary Worth, which, whatever, he’s living his life. For me it was always Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin felt more real that anyone I knew. I wanted to be him.

 

 

Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson
Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson

I literally did this until a couple years ago.

 

 

I also lived a few block away from Big Planet Comics, what I would only later realize is a truly amazing comic book store. There I got into Lewis Trondheim, Jason, Dan Clowes, James Kochalka and any number of cartoonists who were frustratingly better than me.

 

I tried really hard to draw like them, but that wasn’t happening. I still wanted to do a strip though, and at the University of Virginia's newspaper, the Cavalier Daily, I got a chance. I cobbled together some characters I could draw over and over, and titled the strip “Pie” after a joke in an improv scene. (I didn’t know I’d be stuck with it for the next decade!)

 

 

John McNamee
Soooooo ugly. Look away!!


 

I drew the strip every day for three years. After I graduated, no one told me to stop, so I took it online. It looked the same for a bunch of years, and I lost interest in it a bit, occasionally updating out of habit. I got a gig contributing to the Onion News Network, moved to Los Angeles, and studied improv and sketch.

 

 

 

 

 

After a while, I came back to the comic. I came up with a new drawing style, switched back to a daily schedule, and integrated what I learned from improv into my strips.

 

 

John McNamee
Much better.

 

 

Now, two years later, I cartoon full time. I have a little studio in my apartment.

The funny thing about inspiration is that every time you think you know what gets the ideas going, it changes. So here’s a partial list of some of the things that have inspired me in the past:

 

• Fairy tales

• Myths

• Common idioms

• My childhood

• Other people’s comics

• Being angry

• Being sad

• Being happy

• Spiders

• Space

• History

• My relationships

• Batman

• Trees

• Movies

• Books

• Songs

• Philosophy

• Science

• Jeff Goldblum

• Deadlines

 

Besides Pie Comic, I also do a biweekly comic strip called Cluster Fudge. I recently got my first comic into Mad Magazine, fulfilling my lifelong dream of warping America’s youth. I contribute to the Onion’s sister site, Clickhole, and I’m finishing my first full comic issue, called “Punch Mapplethorpe.” It’s gonna be real silly.

GoComics A to Z, Vol. 24: The Quixote Syndrome

A weekly feature spotlighting new & unusual features on the GoComics A-Z roster

 

1703e4e0df370132e3b6005056a9545d

Feature: The Quixote Syndrome
Creator: Peter Mann
Format: large format
Frequency: every Monday
Recommended if you like: Existential Comics, elaborate sketches torn out of the notebook of your Western Civ classmate who reads too much philosophy and eats too much acid.

 

F405ef9026c90133fe71005056a9545d

What exactly is "The Quixote Syndrome" ? Comic Historians I spoke with were baffled at the question. WebMD offered zero help. The cartoonist himself has referred to it as "a chronic graphic condition characterized by inflammation of the bookish imagination — often irreverent, occasionally profound, and always with a heavy dose of strange." A deep search in the annals of the Laugh Tracks blog revealed an interview with Peter Mann in which he states that the comic began as an accompaniment to his teachings in the freshman humanities program at Stanford University, where he earned a doctorate in History and Humanities.

 

My own personal scan of the TQC reveals something at once brilliant and juvenile — a mix of expressionism, surreal character sketches, and an illuminating look at historical riddles such as what became of Rasputin's, err... magic wand. The comic isn't for the faint-hearted, and doesn't offer much in the way of recurring characters, reliable punchlines or modern-day Web jargon such as "I eat all the bacon" (though it certainly could — both Nietzche and James Joyce are rumored to have been big fans of bacon). As an old friend and classmate of Peter's (full disclosure), I've been a big fan since Day 1. But the recent "Boy Giant and Beckett" series (a fictional blend of real events and actual Beckett quotes) has me revisiting the unusual comic all over again.

GoComics Adds New Comics in January

Catch up on the latest and greatest additions to GoComics!

 

Gil by Norm Feuti

 

 

Gil by Norm Feuti
 

Meet Gil. He’s an 8-year-old kid and a bit of an underdog. He doesn’t have the newest toys or live in a fancy house. His parents are split up – his single mother supports them with her factory job income, and his father isn’t around as often as a father ought to be. But none of these things seem to have an adverse affect on Gil’s relentless optimism and upbeat attitude.

 

Norm Feuti is a syndicated cartoonist, author and freelance artist living in Massachusetts.

Bleeker: The Rechargeable Dog by Jonathan Mahood

 

 

Bleeker- The Rechargeable Dog by Jonathan Mahood

 

When Skip Smalls begged his parents for a dog, he should have been more specific. For his 10th birthday, they finally acquiesce and give him Bleeker ― a rechargeable dog equipped with Spock-like sensibilities and his own programmable training manual.  

 

Skip is an average kid with an above-average dog. He struggles to enjoy dog ownership as he adapts to Bleeker’s buggy operating system. While some dogs may chew shoes, Bleeker opens the garage door and turns off the TV when he scratches himself! As a result, Skip has technical support on speed dial. However, there are benefits to having a dog that is computer-literate and runs on batteries. Bleeker helps to keep accident-prone Skip out of harm’s way and even assists him with his homework. Despite some glitches, Skip is learning a lot about his electronic dog ― and himself ― during the training process.

 

Jonathan Mahood grew up in a household surrounded by comic strips. While in high school, he had his first work published — under an assumed name! — in his brother’s university newspaper. The comics took a bit of a backseat for four years, while he studied sculpture at York University in Toronto. The summer after graduating, he discovered a collection of George Herriman’s classic cartoon Krazy Kat and it reignited his love of comic strips. Between carving blocks of stone and wood, he doodled in his sketchbooks and began creating comic strips for local publications. Then, after years of sending cartoon submissions to newspaper syndicates (and receiving the corresponding rejection letters), Mahood decided to launch his first comic online in July 2006. Called Hoover: The Rechargeable Dog, the strip combined his two favorite companions, his dog and his iPod, eventually renaming it Bleeker in 2007, honoring his grandfather’s middle name. Since then, the comic has built a strong daily audience, attracted interest for an animated television series and has been translated weekly for Die Zeit, Germany’s largest national weekly newspaper. King Features Syndicate syndicated Bleeker: The Rechargeable Dog from 2011 to 2015. Mahood lives in a small town north of Toronto with his dog and his iPhone.

The Worried Well by Dana Maier

The Worried Well by Dana Jeri Maier

 

Dana Jeri Maier's comics provide useful advice, philosophical musings and spot-on witticisms. She shows us ourselves, not unkindly, as silly and vain and self-involved. Her cartoons feel very interior, a mind watching the world and muttering to itself. They're what that person standing by themselves at the party, not talking to anyone, pretending to look vaguely interested in nothing in particular, has been secretly thinking the whole time.

 

Dana Jeri Maier is an artist and cartoonist living in Washington, DC. She has exhibited widely throughout the DC Metro area and various street corners, if you know where to look. Maier’s site-specific mural, Inscrutable Comic, is on permanent display at the Flashpoint Gallery in Washington, DC.

Dadding Badly by John Kovaleski

 

Dadding Badly by John Kovaleski

 

Dadding Badly documents one dad’s experience of raising a miniature version of himself who can’t talk, walk, forage for food or have any concept of proper bathroom habits.

 

John Kovaleski is a cartoonist and writer living somewhere above ground. He is the creator of the comic strip Bo Nanas, and a contributor to MAD Magazine. He is also a father of his own small human, who seems to be turning out OK so far. Fingers crossed.

Phoebe and Her Unicorn by Dana Simpson

“Sometimes a unicorn shows up in your life and makes everything better.” – Dana Simpson, Phoebe and Her Unicorn cartoonist

 

Glitter is falling from the sky around the GoComics headquarters as we celebrate Dana Simpson’s latest and greatest achievement! Dana has been named the winner of a 2016 Pacific Northwest Book Award for “Unicorn on a Roll”!

 

As Dana is honored with this award, she’s shared her journey to success in “Me and My Unicorn: An Essay.” Dana writes:

 

"One day I wrote a strip with a unicorn in it. It was a one-off joke, riffing on a theme that was looming large in my life at the time: knowing what counts as a reasonable expectation. Phoebe was conversing with a voice off camera about whether her ideas about her life were realistic. Final panel: pan out, and look, she’s talking about this to a unicorn. I was on the verge of blowing the opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream; given that, it was a pretty hopeful comic strip.

 

"And then the unicorn wouldn’t leave. Once she was there, she was there. She more or less announced herself as the second main character in the strip.

 

"Being a unicorn, she wanted attention. She needed to shine in front of an admiring audience. This dovetailed nicely with my own goals.”

 

Quickly gaining popularity as a webcomic, Universal Uclick decided to bring the magic of Phoebe and Her Unicorn to newspapers around the country. The magical, sparkling comic strip launched in more than 100 outlets last year.

 

Fans can’t get enough! Andrews McMeel Publishing has published two Phoebe and Her Unicorn collections (here and here), with a third and fourth hitting bookshelves this year!

 

We’re SO proud of your dedication, talent and success, Dana!
