Today’s comic is coming to you late for reasons of Homework.
In the meantime, enjoy this image of a bunch of BICP cast members having a peaceful (?) afternoon tea with their author.
More gag-based strips. These, though, are tied together by an ongoing regular cast.
Catball and Clown Girl, no longer updating: an angry lump of a cat (with no feet!) and his cheerful sidekick.
Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai, ongoing: a silent fox and the samurai for whom he sidekicks.
Chopping Block, no longer updating: a serial killer and all his favorite knives. (Warning for dark content.)
Happle Tea, ongoing: a cute kid and a bunch of gods, spirits, and mythological creatures.
Nedroid Picture Diary, ongoing: an optimistic potato-shaped bear and a snarky bird.
ShaBot 6000, no longer updating: a Jewish robot.
Vicious Lies, no longer updating: this guy and his wife. Seriously, though, it’s funny.
A bunch of plottier comics, with engaging characters driving them.
The Gods of Arr-Kelan: fantasy with SF elements, complete. What happens when a random bunch of human spacefaring passengers get thrown into the roles of deities (complete with sudden magical powers) on an alien world. A lot of it reminds me of Trigun.
Look Straight Ahead: real-world psychology, complete. Follows a teenager through a mental break with reality, evocatively illustrated from his POV.
What Nonsense: mostly-realism with anthro characters, ongoing. An overworked businessman gets sent to what was supposed to be a nice calming retreat, only to find himself in the company of a bunch of exceedingly strange fellow guests.
Trying Human: sci-fi, ongoing. Our heroine is fighting against experimented on by aliens; one of the greys is developing a crush on her; her boyfriend just moved away for a super-secret job that turns out to be at Area 51; and we keep flashing back to the story of a woman who worked there in the ’50s and made friends with the first grey they caught.
Unsounded: fantasy, ongoing. There’s a snarky, scrappy girl with a tail; her bodyguard is a serious-minded magic-wielding zombie; and she’s trying to carry out a mission without tripping any wires in some kind of developing severe international conflict.
Bruno the Bandit: fantasy, completed. This one’s more gag-based, but the drama ramps up as the arcs start building on each other, while satirizing everything from epic fantasy to reality TV along the way.
Shrink your browser, and BICP’s layout now shrinks down with you.
Zoom in, and all the spacing on the text stays harmonious and fluid.
And if you’re reading on a mobile device or another tiny screen, you’ll find the sidebars rearranging, and some of them disappearing completely, to keep the latest comic front and center.
We’re still working out the kinks — for instance, my own not-so-smart phone isn’t picking up on the cues to display the smaller layout. (Media queries, how do they work.) Anyone with HTML/CSS experience who wants to look at the code, your suggestions would be welcome.
And to everyone in general: if you see something anywhere on the site that looks broken, please comment here and let me know!
But I’m A Cat Person finally has some link banners! Use them to link to the comic on your website, in your forum signatures, anywhere you want.
You can find these, and any future banners and buttons, on the links page.
A personal theory about that time in “Numbers” when the Man in the Tan Jacket hijacked the broadcast.
As if “he’s trying to protect the town, but most people can’t remember him long enough to act on the warnings he gives” wasn’t emotional enough for a character bio.
