"Uh… I’ll take a number four, with a side of twelve, and an atheist to go."

I like “Hippy Capitalists” just because I like the idea of a chick on bell bottom jeans, a top hat, and monocle.

hi i’m number four

It all looks so good, how do i I pick just one?

Here’s my webcomic map for emeraldcitycomicon.  This is a WIP and will be updated as I remember all the people I forgot.  Sorry for the size.  That’s how ECCC posted the map and I didn’t resize it at all.
Note that TopatoCo includes a whole pile of webcomic people that I couldn’t list individually.  They were all recently announced as guests by ECCC themselves, though, so you can read their blog on that for the info.
As for me specifically, I’m in 811 with several friends.  It will be crowded.

Aaahhhh! That’s such a great idea, thank you for doing this and sharing it! We’ll have a hi-res PDF map up on the site in the next week or so if you want to update that too. :)

Here’s another map to webcomics at ECCC, where it seems I am listed as “HJ!.” That’s a… creative abbreviation. Two things about this map are important. A) The ECCC floor is twice as big as it was when I first went there in 2010. B) ECCC is the most webcomics friendly show I have ever been to.

We found out Emerald City Comicon table placements today, so I put this thing together to show you where we’ll be next month.  Joel and I (and also Explosm I am pretty sure) are in that 1412-ish area.  It’s a good area!  Something Positive/Girls With Slingshots and Devil’s Panties are just one aisle over, and Blind Ferret is behind them.  
Apparently Topatoco is that long-ass table in the Pike Street bridge.  Man, they’re gonna have a pretty sweet view behind ‘em.
And it seems my old tablemates such as Magnolia Porter and Kory Bing and Kel McDonald are like all the way over on the other side at 310?  Weird.  This will make it harder for me to casually annoy them.  

Hear that, Party Joel? The ECCC party (with me, David Willis and Cyanide & Happiness) is at booth 1412!

Shortpacked!: The Nineties

In my day, if your eyes weren’t pupil-less white slits with glowing pink radiation, then they were just little sinister rhombuses. And a man’s shoulders were 6 feet wide! Like the wing span of a condor, they were! MAJESTIC! And on those shoulders were 3, sometimes 4 impossibly large guns! Musta’ been seven…eight hundred pounds of munitions strapped to every back. Even those with regular human strength carried a 200 lb. plasma cannon. How did we afford these guns and where did we get the power cells?! No one knew!  

And everyone was somebody’s baby who traveled back in time from some dystopian future!

Matter’o fact, there wasn’t a future what WEREN’T distopian! Every future you popped yer head into were full’o burnt out halves of buildings and damn near everything was CURRENTLY on fire! You wanna talk killer robots?! I’ll tell ya’ ‘bout killer robots! What ya did was as soon as ya found yerself in one’o these distopian future paradox scenerios, you joined yerself up with one’o the main revolutionary organizations. Now sit down a spell, cuz I need ta tell ya about portals to the past and how to choose the right one. Purple ones is good. Green ones is good too, but not as good as purple. Now you find a purple portal to your own past with a little black and white Kirby Crackle on the edges and you jump right in that sumnabitch like it were a slip’n slide.

I made a silly thing! A rainbow Jayne Hat, at the behest of Joel Watson. For context see here, here and here. A big kids version is now in the works.
Sometimes there are shitty things on the internet but fun silly things come out of that. In such cases, I like to Get Excited And Make Things. I don’t feel like wading into the depths of why a rainbow Jayne hat takes a shitty thing and makes it into a slightly more uplifting thing, but if you know who plays Jayne Cobb and the opinions he’s voiced about the LGBT community….a rainbow Jayne hat seems an improvement. (I recommend this article at Huffington Post about separating art from the artist)

Mobile Alt-Text Button For Webcomics

An extremely helpful reader named Dan H. wrote me this bit of javascript to allow people reading my comics on mobile devices to see the alt-text/hover text on my images. I get a ton of comments about how helpful this little button is, so I thought I would share the code for others to use and modify as they see fit. 

My site is driven by Wordpress (and uses Comicpress/Comic Easel to power the comics), so I just posted this script into an empty text widget and dropped it into the foot via the Wordpress dashboard. It should word on non-wordpress sites as well, as long as you paste it in the right place (please don’t ask me where that is for you site. I will have absolutely no idea). 

<!—Begin Mobile Alt Text Button Code—>

<script type=”text/javascript”:>
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery(‘#comic-wrap’).css(‘position’,’relative’);
jQuery(‘<a id=”checker” style=”position:absolute; width:125px; height:41px; background:url(http://i.imgur.com/wVsIO.jpg); background-position:0 -40px; display:block; bottom:35px; right:325px; cursor:pointer”></a>’).appendTo(‘#comic-wrap’);
jQuery(‘#checker’).hover(function() {
jQuery(this).css(‘background-position’,’0px 0px’);
},function() {
jQuery(this).css(‘background-position’,’0px -40px’);
}).live(‘click’,function() {
cA = jQuery(‘#comic-wrap img’).attr(‘alt’);
jQuery(‘#page-wide-wrap’).before(‘<div style=”background:black; opacity:.7; display:none; margin:0; position:absolute; z-index:9000;” id=”mask”></div><p id=”modal” style=”position:absolute; display:none; top:90px; z-index:9001; margin:0; width:400px; background:white; color:black; padding:15px; font-size:20px; font-family:Tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; -webkit-border-radius: 14px; border-radius: 14px;”>’+cA+’</p>’);
mH = jQuery(document).height();
mW = jQuery(window).width();
wW = jQuery(window).width();
jQuery(‘#mask’).css({‘width’:mW,’height’:mH}).fadeIn(‘slow’);
jQuery(‘#modal’).css({‘left’:wW/2-200}).fadeIn();;
jQuery(‘#modal’).click(function() {

jQuery(‘#mask’).click(function() {

The bolded values in the copy of the code below are what you are going to watch to change to be relevant to your own site. I have probably missed something since I do not fully understand this code. 

<!—Begin Mobile Alt Text Button Code—>

<script type=”text/javascript”:>
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery(‘#THE DIV ID THAT HOLDS YOU COMIC’).css(‘position’,’relative’);
jQuery(‘<a id=”checker” style=”position:absolute; width:125px; height:41px; background:url(http://THE URL OF YOUR ALT TEXT BUTTON IMAGE.jpg); background-position:0 -40px; display:block; bottom:35px; right:325px; cursor:pointer”></a>’).appendTo(‘#THE DIV ID THAT HOLDS YOU COMIC’);
jQuery(‘#checker’).hover(function() {
jQuery(this).css(‘background-position’,’0px 0px’);
},function() {
jQuery(this).css(‘background-position’,’0px -40px’);
}).live(‘click’,function() {
cA = jQuery(‘#THE DIV ID THAT HOLDS YOU COMIC img’).attr(‘alt’);
jQuery(‘#THE DIV ID THAT HOLDS YOUR WHOLE PAGE’).before(‘<div style=”background:black; opacity:.7; display:none; margin:0; position:absolute; z-index:9000;” id=”mask”></div><p id=”modal” style=”position:absolute; display:none; top:90px; z-index:9001; margin:0; width:400px; background:white; color:black; padding:15px; font-size:20px; font-family:Tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; -webkit-border-radius: 14px; border-radius: 14px;”>’+cA+’</p>’);

jQuery(‘#mask’).click(function() {

});

});

function kill() {
jQuery(‘#modal’).fadeOut(‘fast’).remove();
jQuery(‘#mask’).fadeOut(‘fast’).remove();
};
</script>

Some notes: 

The “background-position:0 -40px” refers to how the alt text button image contains both the “off state” and the “hover state.” The -40px is how much the image shifts to give the illusion of highlighting when you hover over it. You’ll probably have to change this to suite your site. 

The actual image looks like this: 

The rest of the bolded values are values that you will likely have to play with to make the alt-text button work on your site. I do not claim to know exactly what each one does other than that I am pretty sure they are involved with the positioning of the button relative to your content and site layout. 

I come from the “knows just enough to be dangerous” coding school, so I typically copy and paste useful code then play around with the values until it magically stops breaking my site and does the thing I want it to do. This also means if you try out this code and it doesn’t work for you, I will not be able to help you troubleshoot. I hope some of your find this useful. It’d be nice if someone with the know how turned this into a Wordpress Plugin.
