031 - Van Hemochromatosis

Boy, what a terrible looking explosion.

Anyway, here's the comic. This one is special because, unlike the last I-don't-know-how-many comics, I actually finished this one before update time! Now, granted, I finished it only 25 minutes before then, but it gave me enough time to write this out and do a not-so-rushed mini comic. I also had fun doing this comic, so there's that, too.

It's unfortunate I couldn't find any medical conditions involving blood that sound more like "Helsing" than "Hemochromatosis", since that doesn't sound a thing like "Helsing" But, it had more S's than "Hemophilia", so I put it in. Maybe one day I'll think of a better pun involving blood and Bram Stoker's Dracula for the title, and I'll shake my fist at the air and curse.

This comic is somewhat special, as it is the last comic I will ever completely draw as a high school student. I will be graduating this Friday. Holy shit stuff!

Mini Comic

Just droppin' some knowledge on ya.

- Have a bloody good week, eh?

I hate myself for that pun. Ow.

030 - This Comic Is Political Or Something

Here you are. I've been busy all week. I also didn't even draw this at my house, but I made this comic JUST FOR YOU.

See you next week. I'll try to kick my not doing this comic habit.


Here you go.

- Goodbye. Have a relaxing week.

029 - Only Mildly Based Off Of A True Story

This comic is so fucking meta it hurts!

Anyway, yeah, there ya go. This is based off a true story. Twice, actually.

So, there ya go. Sorry it's late. Again.

I remember when I used to have my comics finished by Sunday nights, let alone started by then. Oh well, maybe I'll start working on them earlier someday. As long as I don't need to stay up until 4 in the morning like last time.


I give you two this week to make up for the lack of one last week.


There ya go.

I saw Star Trek last week. It was awesome. I'd go as far as to say it was one of, if not the best movie this year so far.

- Have a good week.

028 - Going Down Down Down Down Down

Jesus Chris I thought I'd never finish this. I'll fix up any mistakes I may have made tomorrow.

I'm really really really really sorry it's so late.

I didn't include myself in this comic because I don't want Dragons With Pom Poms to turn into a complete author wank.

I got the inspiration for this when, while visiting the New York Museum of Art, I found out they have people standing on the elevators like this. I call them elevator jockeys, but not to their face. I don't know what they're actually called.

I actually attempted this joke on the elevator jockeys. The first year I visited the museum, the lady that was tending to the elevator actually responded with the answer to the joke (as illustrated in the article). She seemed less annoyed doing it, and everyone in the elevator had a laugh. It was the high point of my day.

The next year no one caught on to the joke, but I did get into some interesting conversations with people about working at the museum.

Also, think of this comic as a way of saying "Yeah, I hate the puns I made the last few comics, too." Really, I hate puns, yet I somehow like them at the same time. It's strange.


I'll do a mini comic when I get home from school tomorrow. I'm way too tired to do one at the moment.

-Have a week.

Ah fuck, Blogspot doesn't want images this big! I'll upload it to the alternate host in a moment.

027 - My Other Power Is Sexual Healing

Oh me.

I'm sorry this comic is another wordplay, but I did this last minute as a replacement for what was originally going to be this week's comic.

Why did I switch comics so late in the schedule? Well, to put it frankly, the first comic just wasn't funny. At all. It was two guys talking and laughing about how they accidentally killed their friend. It's much more tastefully done than what it sounds like, but it wasn't funny. At no point in the comic would someone say "Oh, haha, that's humorous in some way."

So I switched it for this comic which I came up with about five hours ago and drew an hour ago. It's much better. Maybe someone might actually find it funny? I'm not holding my breath, but I hope so.

So I'm very sorry to have a second consecutive week where the joke is some wordplay. Very very very sorry. Hopefully things will be different next week. Maybe I'll actually, you know, work on the comic before Sunday.

I start work again next week. Rafting season is beginning again, which means I can start earning money. With each paycheck I get I'm going to be putting a little bit toward a website and a little bit toward getting a fancy Cintiq monitor. It'll only be a forever and half before I get enough scratch saved up for one, but I'm patient. The rest goes to college and other general things like video games and not starving to death.

The prospect of having a Cintiq monitor excites me in ways it really shouldn't. Honestly, it's one of my dreams to have a Cintiq. Whenever I see one my mouth waters and I see a little montage of all the things Cindy (the name of the monitor in my dreams) and I would do together. The drawing. The doodling. The scribbling. The erasing. The laughing. The crying. The long walks in the park. Staring into each other for hours on end. The passionate lovemaking...

Right, anyway.


I've got no comment on this one. I thought up and did this about 7 minutes ago. I really procrastinated this week. I'm sorry.

I wonder if I apologize this much in my other posts... I should, you know, do updates I don't feel the need to apologize for.

-Have a frakkin awesome week.

PS. For the large amount who don't get the joke (sorry sorry sorry), in the last panel the skeleton is singing Dog Eat Dog by Adam Ant.
