I know I had said Blinky and Sal was over and it was eluded to the fact that he had been euthanized, but what can I say? I like the little guy. He may be popping up every so often in between episodes of Barb.
Blinky and Sal may be over, but there are book collections available and there will be new projects coming soon!
One of the great things about having a character that can travel through time is that literally nothing matters after that. It’s basically cheating. And, no. I don’t think just being aware of that fact gets me off the hook for lazy writing.
Blinky and Sal is coming to an end. It’s been a fun ride. I still have several weeks left to get through before I move on to something new. But, for parties interested, there are three comic book collections out right now. Maybe one day later a fourth will come out with the final episodes.
Straight from the Pit of Hell is a sprawling collection from the comic’s undisciplined origins up through the first gags to appear on Patheos-NonReligious. Short gags concerning existential dread and whatnot as well as the longer stories “Luna,” “The Debt,” “Skin (it’s my party and owl cry if I want to)”, “The Spiderhouse Rules”, and “Pilgrim’s Digress”.
Toddspeed features more dark whimsy as well as the first appearances of Neil NeGrasse Bison and Tim the pervert tree. It also includes Spatsby’s near death experience mini-story.
Propaganda contains self-contained jokes and jabs and the much longer political time-travel saga concerning Mayor Clown Hitler’s rise to power. It also features the lighter mini-story of Blinky’s diet.
I am pleased to announce that the second printed collection of Blinky and Sal comics is available to own on Amazon.
Propaganda will also be available soon so keep a sharp eye.
A very big thank you to all the people who enjoy the strip and support it.
It’s been a real joy to push myself to make two new comics a week and learn new tools and experiment with different ideas.
Stay weird. Just don’t let the darkness get the better of you.
