Fan Stuff

WoB doesn't really seem to be the sort of comic that provokes fan art. However, it now has its very first item of fan stuff. If any more turns up, I shall post it here as well.

Fan Stuff #1: Casey Mulligan Flow Chart

Ekin Akkus explains this chart as follows:

He has a medical/psychological disorder, does not he? If it's medical, it happens once in a while, when he's experiencing emotional highs/downs. It shows he's human. If it's psychological, he suppresses these emotional moments in his memory, either unintentionally or intentionally. Huh! :) I doubt that it is intentional, if not, he might be Satan. If these happen unintentionally, it shows that he's human. Maybe, I should do a flowchart.


Either way, you deserve a "whoaaa". I don't remember that I said that to a webcomic before. Not that you are a webcomic; you draw the plot. And the comic.

Subsequently, Ekin has added two more options: 1) that Casey's psychological disorder prompts him not to forget his emotional highs/lows but to forget that lying about them to people who have just witnessed them is illogical, and 2) that Casey is deliberately screwing with everyone.

Fan Stuff #2: Marie Vs. the Lego People

Nur Hussein has provided this in-depth look into what might happen if Marie were confronted by two large Lego people. I expect there might be some screaming.

Fan Stuff #3: The Lego Saga Continues

Nur Hussein has continued his Lego/WoB crossover. He offers some explanation of what is going on here:

Our two teleporters have been stuck in Toronto for months now, but the Doctor detected their distress signal in the time vortex and dropped in to rescue them.

"Hello, I'm the Doctor," he said casually.

"Please take us back home!" cried the two teleporters.

"That's what I'm here for," said the Doctor cheerfully. "And hello Casey."

"Nice to see you again Doctor," said Casey, smiling and kneeling so that he could talk to them at eye level. "You've changed."

"Well it's just the TARDIS projecting an image into your mind," said the Doctor. "To make the ride comfortable for them. That, and I've died a few times."

"I'll see you around then," said Casey as the two travellers entered the TARDIS with the Doctor and it winked out of that reality to take them away, west of Bathurst.

Fan Stuff #4: Marie Compared to a Penguin

A reader who styles himself SunshineRain has put together this collection of images in support of his theory that Marie is actually a flightless swimming bird.

Fan Stuff #5: Sexy Casey

I'm not surewhat to say about this portrait of Casey by reader Dances with Fish via the superhero generatorHeromachine 2.5besides: holy mackerel...I wish I could draw Casey looking that sexy. That is a sexy, sexy Casey.

Considering the background, I just have to add this:

“Hello, ladies. Look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies' scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up...where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand? Back at me. I have it: it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again; the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Fan Stuff #6:  Entries in Summer Contest #5, 2013

Below please find entries in Summer Contest #5, the rules for which are as follows:

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a one-panel scene between at least two WoB characters of your choice and post it somewhere online, then link to it in the comments section (or mail it to me if you can't, but be aware that I will share it; if you take this option, let me know what name or alias you want displayed).  Again, stick figures are an option here.  The panel should involve at least two of the following elements:  Casey's mom, a shiny object, bricks, Master Ramsay, the Elvis, maple doughnuts, Christmas, the number seven, and a ukulele.

Original locations for the entries, if they have original locations, will be linked via the entrants' names.

Entry #1:  Laura (2nd Place [Tie])

Laura has specified that this is the piece Barbara is playing on her ukulele.  Obviously, she will receive bonus points for shoehorning in a Doctor Who reference.

Entry #2:  Nobilis


Entry #3:  Dances With Fish

Entry #4:  Tarina

Entry #5:  Tarina (2nd Place [Tie])

Entry #6:  Errol Elumir (1st Place)

Regarding these comics:  they were posted by Errol Elumir of  Debs & Errol (click on the comics themselves for the original posts) during Summer Contest #5.  Only the last of them qualifies for the contest (yes, it is fudging the "one panel" rule a bit, but Errol has specified that he's okay with only the final panel being considered); however, I wanted to post them all together, so I've stuck all three in the "Contest" section of this page.  Errol has even replicated my style and my way of drawing bushes in the background so I don't have to do bricks.  He contacted me the evening before the comic posted to ask what font I used in my comics.  I informed him than I used my own actual handwriting.  This did not please him.  I do think that in my next comic, I may go the font route.  The dialogue takes me a stupidly long time because I do it all by hand, then use Photoshop to straighten all the letters out.  This is an absolutely ridiculous method that wastes oodles of precious time, but I'm used to it.  At any rate, Errol's solution of finding a nice font was very, very wise.

Entry #7:  Lumair

Casey Meets Hagrid
