Last week I brought Marco Rubio a spine to replace the one he lost when he voted to confirm Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. Today the Senate will be holding a hearing and possibly voting on Tillerson’s nomination. Sadly the spine and I will be working from my office at Greenpeace for this one.
I’m also an attorney, and spent several hours at Dulles International Airport yesterday volunteering my services for detainees affected by Trump’s executive order. AMA!
The spine in the news:
Hello there! I am a french translator for C&H on a fan-account on twitter (https://twitter.com/C_and_H_FR) and I noticed that Kris recently changed his font in his comics. Could you please tell me what it is? I can't find it anywhere and now is my chance.
Also, I really really really REALLY like your comics. Keep up the good work! You're awesome!
did you make eye contact with him?
He made eye contact with me, and with the spine.
Did it send chills down his sp.......wait, he doesn't have one.
Thanks for reminding us, we definitely knead to get on that soon.
He looked confused, and then mildly alarmed.
Firstly, massive fan, love your work. My question: which comic that you've each made are you the most proud of? The one that made you laugh while you were thinking/designing it.
How many detainees did you personally speak with?
Thanks! For my comics I couldn't stop myself with this one:
Customs and Border Patrol is refusing to allow attorneys to speak with detainees. In violation of the court order.
Have you guys ever thought of of making a cyanide and happiness video game?
The plastic spine I held up.
Great comic, loved it for a while now.
I often find myself running out of creative ideas. Like I have a reservoir of creativity which gets drained if I do too many "creative" things for too long. Do this sort of thing happen to you guys? If so, how do you overcome it?
Are you going to now start following him around with a pair of truck nuts?
Creative fatigue is a real thing for sure, and it's an obstacle for us as we do so much writing so often. Something that helps is getting out of your comfort zone a bit or put yourself in situations where you can get ideas by accident. Sometimes being distracted helps instead of hunting inspiration down.
ALSO: the Senate is about to hold a debate on confirming Rex Tillerson. Senate Democrats are trying to hold it up. Call your Senators and tell them to Reject Rex!
Thanks for doing this, what do you believe is your most wholesome piece of work?
Why is Rex Tillerson bad for the planet?
I find this pretty damn wholesome: http://explosm.net/comics/151/
Rex Tillerson spent his entire career at ExxonMobil. His job was to find, extract, and burn carbon. Which, as everyone but this administration knows, causes climate change. Which is really bad for the planet. That's the short answer. There are many more reasons, ask away!
What was the best response you've gotten from your spine trolling?
Has to be this, which arrived in the mail: http://imgur.com/a/dX46u
My very first email address was for SFDT.
What do you guys think of Rick & Morty?
I know its a comic not a cartoon but I think the humour style has a lot of crossover.
We love that cartoon! Justin Roiland even helped us with one of our Kickstarters.
