Wed, Jul 30 - Con Returned Whew! Comic-Con was a lot of fun! I'll admit, I was doing a lot of complaining about having to get ready for it, but it was worth it. Got to hang out with Keith and Lonnie and Miriam and others, met up with Dan Harmon, attended a fun Adult Swim party, sang "Oh Fionna" to its writer Rebecca Sugar, got and loved the first two JediAcademy books by Jeffrey Brown, got and loved Heck by Zander Cannon, and just basically hung out and drank a lot and made people smile every now and again. As I said: Fun! And now this weekend is the sure-to-be-great , which means it's time to do an early update, and as promised this one comes with TWO whole cartoons! Well, techinically two whole cartoons, though admittedly one is pretty brisk. Here it is: Okay, that one's a bit enigmatic, I'll admit. But check out the awesome seriousness of its sequel!What the hell? What is all this Mant business about? I can't say I'm absolutely sure myself, but sometimes you just have to let the creative process play itself out and see where you end up. I guarantee a shocking twist next week!

Wed, July 23 - Comics & Cons! It has become that time of year again! What time? Taco Time? Adventure Time? Space Time? No, friends, no. It's San Diego Comic-Con time! And as you, my loyal readers well know, that means I'll be once again hawking my wares at the big show, flower-hatted up like all get-out, standing behind my table in the Small Press Area, K16 alongside the likes of Lonnie Milsap, the inestimable and of course many others, handing out flyers and enticing unsuspecting passersby into entering the strange and yet occasionally rewarding world of Bob the Angry Flower. If you happen to be in San Diego this week, and additionally happen to be going to the Big Show, stop on by and say "Hi"! You know... for kids! The Bad News Because it's so early in the week and I'm heading out to the Con, I'm holding out on posting a new strip this week. The horror!The Good News On my return from the Con and before my almost immediate departure north for the , I'll post two --count 'em-- two cartoons this time next week! Trust me, it's better this way. Mant lives! He hungers!Golden West Music FestMiriam LibickiKeith Knight
Fri, July 4 - Aw, C'Mon Yeah, I know American readers are busy boozing and fireworking and filling themselves with patriotic pride. Hey, if it was my nation's brithday, I'd be doing the same. Indeed, I did so three days ago. But that was then and this is Friday, and Friday is when new Bob the Angry Flower cartoons arrive, and so so here is one.
Fri, Jun 27 - summertimes I hope y'all enjoying the newly minted days of summer, brought fresh from the universe to all of us this Friday. This particular Friday, if you know what I mean. Whether you do or you don't, it makes no difference in your potential reading of this week's cartoon, lovingly named
Fri, Jun 13 - I Seriously Wish I had a recorder attached to my brain, because it is enormously frustrating to have a bunch of well-conceived ideas constructed into sentences, only to have them all whisper away into the night when I sit down to type out this week's update. Stupid brain! Damned gin! In any case, here's this week's cartoon
Fri, Jun 6 - HI!!! Hi, folks! I trust you've all been enjoying the longer and ever longer days, even as the melancholy whiffs set in about how it's only a week or two before the days start getting shorter again. How are you all doing? Are you, as they say, "feeling it!"? I genuinely hope so, because -- let us not be mistaken -- I hope that Bob the Angry Flower readers are discriminating sorts, attuned to meaning and seasons and the occasional laugh delivered in cartoon form. Is such a laugh available this week? Tough to say. This strip is far less funny than last week's strip, but I chuckled a couple of times while drawing it. Funny? I'll leave it to you all to decide as you investigate the ridiculous intracacies of the
