One Shots - 7 - "A Delicate Request"

Sunday, December 18, 2005


I just noticed that by clicking on the "Advertise on this site" link at the bottom of my ads, you can create Google ads that appear specifically on Adventures with Play. Try it!

I said, try it.

Switching Charities

I've decided that Child's Play, the charity started by the godfathers of webcomix over at Penny Arcade is a better recipient of your click-derived donations than the scandal-prone and insufficiently-video-game-affiliated American Red Cross. From now on, 100% of the revenue from this site will go to Child's Play. Now you can check the sidebar to see just how little money your lackadaisical clicking on WoW gold and eyelash straighter ads brings to sick children everywhere. Well, just the English- and French Canadian- speaking parts of everywhere if this map is to be believed.

Oh, and if you only clicked on those ads to benefit the Red Cross, put away your indignant emails. I've just settled up with both organizations for the full amount as of today. Now if I can just con Google into sending me a duplicate adWords check, I'll be back on the dotcom gravy train.

Choo choo.

The next stage of media empire

So I'm thinking of printing a physical comic book with some Adventures with Play strips and other sundry content. It might be fun to do. What do you think? To the sidebar poll question!

The High Brows have it

The third poll question is now closed and "High Brow" has won by a hair's breadth.

  • 42.1% of you say that you prefer thoughtful comix about the human condition. Something along the lines of Descartes' "Meditation on a Ball of Wax."
  • 41.8% prefer the weird stuff; "Meditation on a Ball of Mayonnaise" comes to mind.
  • Only 16.1% of you go for the peasant humor. Rename the last strip to, "Meditation on a Ball of Poop" and consider it your consolation prize.

Here is the poll question for posterity. You may continue voting on it, but your votes will no longer be legally binding.

The next poll question will be up shortly!

One Shots - 5

A new low for Adventures with Play.

If it bends...

There's an interesting discussion on the nature of comedy developing in the comments section of the inaugural strip. What do you think?

Life Imitates Timesink

Some Kingsblood has spawned outside my office. Unfortunately, I no longer remember how to pick it.

Volume 4 is complete

The latest episode wraps up Volume 4 - "Shepherds". As always, you can view the whole volume on one page by clicking here. If you're new to this humble narration, I recommend starting Adventures with Play at the very beginning and clicking on "Next". That way, you can experience the epic story telling in all its alleged majesty!

Volume 5 - "A Trick of the Light" and the next "One Shots" will be starting production real soon now.
