The cast of The Scotland Company decks the halls for everyone's favorite holiday. That is, Miss Pennycandy is decking the halls as the men lounge around pretending to be important.

Happy birthday to Xanadu Bruggers, our one and only Pennycandy!

AM vs PM

Sometimes my co-teacher, Paul, and I disagree in the class. When this happens, we always settle our differences amicably. Then I stab him in the back.

Our rocky relationship is made easier by the desserts that our students bring us every week. These desserts are a requirement of the course, and you teach any kind of class at all, I'd recommend the same for your syllabus.

While munching desserts, I like to catch up on what films my students have been watching. When a student told me they'd just seen The Fly for the first time, it made me wonder what a reverse-Fly flick might look like...

Between the sword fights, decadent desserts, and insectoid mutants, the AM/PM class tends to keep things interesting.

Languid Jack-O-Lanterns

Last week, I challenged the Twitterverse to board a four-panel sequence illustrating the theme, "Languid Jack-O-Lanterns." I strayed pretty far from the actual meaning of 'languid,' but the sequence was fun to board, none the less. Enjoy! 

SFX: Footsteps 

SFX: Creaky door

Sally: "Jack, are you okay? I noticed your most recent Jack-O-Lanterns are looking a"

Jack: "I haven't had much time for pumpkin carving, Sally. You see, I've discovered a new enthralling holiday..."

Jack: "FLAG DAY!"

If you'd like to participate in this weekend's four-panel challenge, the theme is "Tournament Squirrels."

I have a theory that Zynga is slowly enslaving the human race in a Blofeldian scheme of world domination and I refuse to take part. After all, "Farmville Invite" is an anagram for "Villain Vet Firm." I always wondered where Bond baddies took their pet kitties and sharks when they got sick.

So next time someone sends you a Farmville invite, feel free to drop this on their FB wall. It's a cute way to say, "You're one invite away from being unfriended."

Say no to evil. Say no to Farmville.

First Day of Class

It's first day of class for our Fall Semester at the Academy of Art University, which means printing up a fresh batch of inspiration packets (art compliments of the great Tom Gately) and a fresh horrifying paint job at the Academy.

The paint scheme is already having adverse effects on our students.

Can't wait to see what effect an entire semester in this crimson nightmare will have on my psyche. Stay tuned!

Fantasy Football II: Ravens vs Bengals

In Game of Thrones, ravens are messenger birds used to deliver bad news across great distances. It's looking like Marvin Lewis is going to have to send a raven back home to Cincinnati after the carrion birds pick the Bengals' bones clean tonight.

Giants vs. Cowboys

This is why I'm not a huge football fan. When I hear "Giants vs Cowboys," I imagine something along these lines... which case I'd bet on the giants every single time.

Green Lantern

Below is the Green Lantern redesign that DC unveiled yesterday, complete with gimp mask, biker gloves and gun. This called for a redesign.

I hope that gun is worth the beating Batman is going to give him for breaking Rule #1.

Lusty Faith

Last Friday, I issued another four-panel story challenge. This time the theme was "lusty faith". An old joke immediately came to mind, and here's what I came up with:

SFX: Abbey bell tolls.

SFX: Birds chirping, gentle breeze blowing.

SFX: Nuns giggle.

Nun: "You two will stop giggling at once, or heaven help me I'll put the seats back on these bicycles!"
