Hi! I'm Sam and I create Laughter for a Better World! You can help us do that by joining us on Patreon! Or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

I have lots of sources of inspiration, my top three being the Daily Show's John Stewart, Adam Conover and George Carlin. Others include Gary Larson, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: "any man not busy being born is busy dying." :nod:

Captain America Tribute
Hey, Hooligans! This is day 5 of our Kickstarter and we're already 2/3rds funded!

Yesterday I finished up the 2nd of two images I'm presenting for backers to vote on what they'd like for the Kickstarter exclusive print & desktop wallpaper. The first is a parody of the Rosie Riveter poster with Grumpy Cat. This 2nd one is a tribute to the very first issue of Captain America, on the cover of which, Cap punches Hitler. It's some interesting history, and you can read more about that in the 2nd update on the Kickstarter.

Have an awesome weekend!

- Sam

Woohooligan vol 2: Laugh It Forward
Hey, Hooligans! My newsletter subscribers and patrons helped design this cover for our next book! :D

Our Kickstarter launches tomorrow, Tuesday, May 15th!

Here's the project URL:

EDIT: After a little under a week, the project is already 67% funded! :la:

Trivia: the blind justice character is named Themis and she is not a god, she's one of the titans. Also, she was never blind -- that's a modern addition. Though to be fair, there's not really a singular translation of what Themis means in English. It does mean "justice", but it also meant "will of the gods", which wasn't necessarily just, merely what the gods decided. So somebody getting their comeuppance like Tantalus was Themis, but so was getting crabs or dying of tuberculosis for no particular reason. ;P

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Themis

Also, scholars of Greek mythology will tell you, the Greeks were pretty fascist in their thinking. If you were strong or beautiful, it was only because the gods loved you, and therefore you must be "good", because you were beautiful and strong. And of course conversely if you were ill or had deformities, that indicated that you were "bad" and the gods were punishing you for it. This lead to a pretty awful culture for anyone who wasn't beautiful and strong, though it also lead to some funny anecdotes, like the time a prostitute won a trial by flashing her boobs to the jurors and saying, "obviously I'm good and the gods love me if they gave me these!... If the tits are legit, you must acquit!" ;P

Hey, Hooligans! A few months back I had this little dust-up with pro-internet troll and arguably the most hated man in comics today, Richard Meyer, which was great for me, gave me tons of material for satire. :boogie: Basically, he and his fans can't handle their own medicine. I pushed back the relaunch of our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter because I wanted to get this off my to-do list first.

I've had some pretty good feedback on it so far!

"I love what you’re doing... like Swift meets a calm Bill Hicks, you use your comedy to expose the animal trappings of human nature. Ego, fear, ignorance, etc... You have a unique voice and perspective." - Eric Hailey

"oh...mygod. I... LOVED it xDDD Even lovey is sitting to the side, having no idea what I pulled up and says 'I love this guy, he's hilarious' and we're both just laughing our asses off." - Punkocalypse

I put it in my Twitter rotation with a bunch of Carlin-esque descriptions like:

"Meyer says jokes bring people together, so in that spirit, I think the world would be better off if he were butfucked to death by a pack of rabbid hyenas. ;P #satire"

or

"Meyer says jokes bring people together, so in that spirit, I think the world would be better off if someone force-fed him 50 gallons of Ebola-tainted whale jizz. ;P #satire"

Those descriptions make more sense a few minutes into the video, they're basically Meyer's idea of satire. Thanks in advance for the likes and let me know what you think!

- Sam




:new: And here's the video for the upcoming Kickstarter relaunch on Tuesday!

Hey, Hooligans!

As seemed apparent within a few days of the end, our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter campaign didn't fund. I learned a lot, and I'll be relaunching the campaign in May. If you'd like to know more about the hilarious mistakes I made :lmao: and the changes I'm making for the next launch, check out my post-campaign update. :D

Thanks!

p.s. What are you doing these days? New projects? Old projects? Let me know!
