Shaenon: Ages ago, Jeff and I were discussing what the titles of the Skin Horse books would be if we’d followed the classic 1980s-era Andrews McMeel naming convention, where comic-strip collections are named after quotations from the strip.  You know, like how the Calvin & Hobbes books are called things like Something Under the Bed Is Drooling and Why Am I Peeing on a Ford Logo.

Somehow that conversation led to this month’s wallpaper, featuring Skin Horse Volumes 1-5 as they might have appeared in earlier eras of comic-strip history.  The main lesson I took away from this is that I’m disturbingly good at drawing Cathy characters.

Anyway, if you make a donation in any amount to the Skin Horse Tip Jar, or contribute any amount to our Patreon, we’ll send you a link to the wallpaper.  Patreon contributors will continue to receive new wallpaper for the length of their contribution.

As a bonus, you’ll also get the “Rock Band” wallpaper, one of the first designs I did, which is also chockablock with pop-culture references mostly of interest to me.


Channing: I still feel that “The Snack of Destruction” would have been an excellent title for Volume 1. Man, I love the Killotron robots. I should totally write them into the next storyline or something.
