We haven’t seen Throgor’s pet hyena in a really long time. Here he is again; now, a female spotted hyena would be much bigger and deadlier, but Throgor is just going to have to settle for the oppressed male of the species. Go read more about hyenas, they’re fascinating animals. Zoology is fun.
It’s here! For those of you who didn’t participate in the successful Kickstarter fundraiser for the new book, fear not: SCAPULA World’s Worst Villain is now available for sale!
Continuing the complete book collection of the series, the latest volume is printed in a much larger format than before (meaning you wont have to strain yer little peepers readin’ it)!
SCAPULA World’s Worst Villain collects six complete storylines, beginning from the series’ 2013 relaunch. A major bonus is that all of the daily strips appear in color for the first time ever! Also features The Halloween Gang Class of 2014 (a ‘class picture’ spread profiling the punk kids in Scapula’s army), special limited series of comics from DADAMAN, extended character profiles, and ‘How to Ruin Comics the Scapula Way’, a behind-the-scenes chapter, revealing the complete process of creating the comics.

I’m very sorry to report that longtime reader Lady Jenn passed away earlier this week; she was only 28. Jenn was one of my greatest fans, who devotedly read and commented on every new Scapula comic I made for years on end.
Jenn was always a great source of humor, intellect, pathos, and (perhaps most memorably to everyone here) an encyclopaedic knowledge of how to beat up people in the most absurd of scenarios. She loved monster movies almost as much as I do (if that’s even possible!). She spoke from her heart about the characters I created as if they were real people, and believe me, if that isn’t the ultimate compliment to a comics creator then I simply don’t know what is.
The contrast of her write-ups on combat and her intimate comments on life gave me the impression that she was someone who had endured extreme hardship for so many years, but still did not let it take over her. She was capable of great love and herculean support, and she always showed it around here.
It’s common for me, as a cartoonist, to lament about not having millions and billions of readers, but what I can’t lament on is that the readership that I have now is made up of some incredible individuals, and Jenn was most certainly one of the best. Rest in peace, my friend.
