This is super exciting! If you like fantastic webcomics, then this is the project to back! 25 amazing and talented webcartoonists (and also me) are cobbling together a collection of their work for a PRINTED WEBCOMIC ANTHOLOGY BOOK. Spearheaded by the creator of The DaneMen Comics, this promises to be a worthy anthology for any webcomic fan.
Help make the project possible by backing it on Kickstarter and securing your own copy!
I know. I know. I keep mentioning the book. But what can I say? I’m super excited to get the first 5 years of Blinky and Sal together on paper.

You can also be super cool and get your very own copy of Straight from the Pit of Hell on Amazon.
Already thinking about what to call the next collection of comics.
Interviewer: Luna, you are perhaps the only regular human character in the comic strip Blinky & Sal.
Luna: I guess so. Yeah. Huh. Never really thought about it before. Weird.
Interviewer: You made your debut in a 4 part story arc called “Luna” on July 27, 2015.
Luna: Gosh. Was it that long ago?
Interviewer: You were quickly established as a mad scientist. What kind of mad science do you do?
Luna: Oh, you know. Mad botany. Mad meteorology. Mad oceanography. Mad cosmology. Mad particle physics. Mad cryptozoology. Et cetera. I guess I’m what you’d call a Renaissance mad scientist. Sometimes I literally just take random beakers of chemicals and pour them together without even measuring.
Interviewer: Do you have any hypotheses before you begin an experiment?
Luna: Nope. Most of my experiments are unrepeatable anyway so…y’know.
Interviewer: I see you stick more to the mad part than the science part.
Luna: Play to your strengths! [laughing]
Interviewer: Now, you have drawn some harsh criticism for your controversial experimentation on live animals. What would you say to your critics?
Luna: I would just like them to know that my animal test subjects always—
Rogue Bat: Don’t answer it, Luna!!!
Interviewer: How did you get in here?
Rogue Bat: They just want to expose you to scandal and use your body to sell ad space! I can’t stand idly by and watch you be so exploited by a vile and lascivious media.
Interviewer: Somebody call animal control. I think it’s rabid.
Luna: Blinky, I’m giving an interview. Go back to the lab. I’ll be done in an hour. Seven, tops. What’s gotten into you?
Rogue Bat: Luna, I’ve wanted to tell you for so long. I lo—
[At this point the varmint was tasered, tranquilized, caged, and removed from the premises by authorities.]
Interviewer: Whew. Your fans certainly are out there.
Luna: Sorry about that. I’ll take a look at his brain when I get home. I got a new band saw I wanted to test out anyway. It’ll be a fun way to wind down after my first photo shoot.
Interviewer: Thank you for talking with us today. Luna can be seen popping up in new episodes of Blinky & Sal on Patheos.
Luna: Thanks! Keep on sciencing, everybody!
BLINKY & SAL ARE MOVING TO PATHEOS NONRELIGIOUS CHANNEL!
The soul searching bat you love will be hosted on a new website! Blinky, Sal, Spatsby, Luna, Todd, and the rest will still pop up here at The Big Insane Happy, but for the latest adventures check us out at our new location. The gang will continue to have irreverent escapades and question society and you don’t want to miss it!
If you love these guys (because they love you and thank you for all your support), please follow them at their new home. They’d love for you to continue the journey with them!
We’ve grown a lot since 2013 and there’s a whole lot more growing to do. Stay tuned.
