The boys are disturbed by this article.
A resurrection from 2009, prompted by this great piece by Nick Cohen.
This week’s prompted by Dominic Grieve.
Congrats to Patrick in the UK who wins this month’s raffle prize of a signed copy of the 1st volume of J&M strips, “Where’s the Soap?” Congrats!
I’m a cultural imperialist. I believe in universal human rights.
On hols for the next 2 weeks, so the next to comics will be auto-posts. Hope there are no typos.
Oh and Lulu has 25% off all print books until Aug 14, just in case you were thinking of buying a J&M book.
I asked the famous biologist Jerry Coyne to edit this one from last year, and he agreed! It’s much more scientifically sound now. Thanks, Jerry.
Oh, and yes, somebody really did say “Kaboom! Pow! Lights out! Party’s over!“…
You can read the backstory and inspiration for this one here.
PATRON NEWS. All the patrons who pledged $10 or more per month, and who told me which comic they’d like printed, had their prints sent out in the post yesterday. A large number of you haven’t yet said which print you’d like signed and sent, which is a bit worrying. Are you not getting the messages from Patreon? Maybe you should check your spam folder?
This month’s raffle prize, for patrons of $4 and over per month, is a signed personalised copy of Vol 4 – Big Al. The draw will be on 1st of August. Good luck!
Thanks to this week’s guest writer, Ann Widdecombe, who faces the “sort of atheism” that “wouldn’t once have been said”.
Patreon news. All the clerihews are written and delivered. At least I think so. There were 80 of them altogether. If you pledged $3 or more per month and haven’t yet received your personally composed clerihew, please let me know and I’ll write one for you straight away.
Why do we even bishop?
To those patrons patiently awaiting their signed prints and raffle prizes, please hang in there! You haven’t been forgotten – it’s just taking some time to get things right. Plus I’m still pounding out the clerihews – though there are only about eleven left to go at the time of writing.
(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read all about it here.)
Or, to give it its correct spelling, cornby fash.
Patrons who have pledged $2 or more per month can now download any or all of the PDFs of the J&M books. Check your Patreon messages for the links. Thank you!
An old one today, from 2007.
Did you see Darwin Harmless’s great song, “Don’t be Divisive”, inspired by last week’s strip? Watch it here on YouTube. Warning: it’s catchy.
For those patrons still awaiting their clerihews, signed prints, and other rewards – I haven’t forgotten you! Clerihews are taking up quite a bit of time, but I’m about 75% of the way through them now. Once they’re done, I’ll concentrate on getting all the other rewards out. Thank you for your patience.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that this month’s raffle winner is another Australian! Congrats, James, you win a signed copy of Born Again.
It’s been a while since the boys sang a song.
A thought: if you’re too ashamed of your beliefs to admit to them in public, you might want to reconsider whether or not they’re worth holding on to.
