Check out the latest Cyanide and Happiness short, Totally Forgot. I was the guest writer on this one and I think it turned out bitchin’.
I’m diving back into my archive and retroactively adding bonus panels to my old comics. There are plenty to do, since I only started doing bonus panels about four months ago. Anyway, I’m adding them at random, though I would like to get them all finished eventually.
Here are the first four I added today.
Next weekend I will be at The Emerald City Comicon in Seattle! I’ll be there with all three books, the rest of the Bear Shirts, prints, and both shot glass designs. I’ll also have some original artwork with me. Come by and at the very least say hi! Channelate will be sharing booth space with the likes of Invisible Bread, Buttersafe, Robbie and Bobby, ARG, Corvink, and Woody After Hours. It’s like a webcomic island! So remember 2420 when you’re aimlessly stumbling about the convention center.
The Store just got some new stuff all up in it!
First is the third collection of channelate comics! It’s called “You Used to Be Funnier”.
It collects comics from 2012 and only the best comics of 2011. It’s also the first channelate book to be a big sexy square. It’s 110 pages in full color. There’s a bonus section and a Q&A at the end. Also, there are a handful of little extra comics that run across the bottom of some pages.
I’m really excited about this book. It turned out better than I could have hoped for. Pre-order it and get a free channelate can koozie with your order. I will order only a handful of extra books for ECCC and will sell what ever is left on the site after. So if you want ensure you get a copy, please order during the pre-order if you can. http://channelate.bigcartel.com/product/you-used-to-be-funnier
And finally, after getting a few requests over the past couple years, I am getting a small run of the first book “Men’s Room Small Talk” reprinted. It costs only $9! It’s 128 pages in black and white. It collects the comics from the first year and a half of the strip. As with the others, the pre-order comes with a koozie. http://channelate.bigcartel.com/product/men-s-room-small-talk
So there you have it. If you enjoy the comics I make, picking up something from the store is a great way to support the effort and get something in return! 2012 was my first entire year of doing channelate full time. It was a crazy year and I couldn’t have done it without all you great SOB’s that read and spread the comics.
If you don’t want anything from the store, you can always support the comic by telling people about it.
Hey er’body, we have a new shirt up for pre-order in our newly relaunched store.
The pre-order goes from today until November 7th and will include a FREE (root) beer koozie!
We’ve also added a companion to the Happiness Elixir shot glass.
If you already have the Happiness Elixir shot glass in your grubby mitts, email a pic of you and the shot glass to ryan(at)channelate.com and get 25% off the new shot glass to complete your set!
But wait, there’s more! . . . And it’s all in the store so just go look at it yourself gaaddamnit. CLICK HERE

I posted to the Channelate FB page asking for some prompts to get the juices flowing on a new song. This is the result of that. It’s a love song about someone who’s in love with the alien who had previously abducted them. I really want to get good at writing music, so I can start incorporating music videos in to the comic more. But for me, doing comedy in music form is still a struggle, so this will be a fun exercise if I can stick with it. I’m happy with the way this short song turned out. I’m still a total noob when it comes to mixing and mastering, but I think I did a better job than on the song I did in January. Though, after going back and listening to that first one, I thought it was funny that this new one is in the same key. I guess I need to venture out on the next one.
