[Above, not what I expected to find at WeaselComics.com. Below, you do your job, pencil neck, don't tell me how to do mine!]

  1. How can somethin’ so gangsta be so pretty in pictures? When it’s Jay-z’s Rocawear clothing company, having a sale on their line of Peanuts tees.
  2. Yipes! Haw! Ouch! Oh, snap!
  3. Today is the 30th Birthday of Cross Hatch Editor in Chief Brian Heater. Happy Birthday, Brian! You should follow him on Twitter because he is funny and handsome. @bheater
  4. Cross Hatch Mini-Comics Editor Sarah Morean turns 28 on Saturday, but you should just leave her alone, thanks.
  5. Jen Sorensen is the guest cartoonist for a week over at Rhymes with Orange! Her run started on May 9th and will end on May 15th. Or as I call it now, “hangover day.”
  6. Oh fer cute. Did you guys see this sweet photo of Adam Duncan Hines as a kid? It’s like a week or maybe two decades old by now, but cuuuuute! Also, congrats to Adam on his win at the LA Festival of the Book!
  7. I love these chubby quarter-sized autobio minis from Carrie McNinch and now there’s even more to love! Issue #18 of You Can’t Get There From Here was just released.
  8. I hate to encourage you, but here’s a real good deal on all-day VIP passes for Big Apple Comic Con, happening May 21-22. I just like deals! Arright! Sheesh!
  9. It’s the Day of Giving! Today, all donations over $15 made to the Toonseum in Pittsburgh will be matched through pittsburghgives.org. Please help support this institution.

    Weird. I used to know Adam Hines in highschool. He was really good at videogames. And he used to talk about this wonderdog thing very often, even back then, like 10 years ago.
