You Maniacs!

So much is going on right now in my life, that I am still in the re-creating phase... recreating my website, my business, and my self. As part of the process, and in order to keep (relatively) sane, I am making time to have some fun. This idea came to me, and I loved it enough to pursue.

Albert, of The Inquiring Minds, pays tribute to one of our favorite movies by re-enacting this classic scene from Planet of the Apes! I really hope that you enjoy it.

This print, of course, is available at Zazzle and Cafe Press for those of you who like the print and would like to support HappyGlyphs Comics. This should also be available soon directly through our new website. If you want to order directly through, please drop us a line and we will arrange it.

Thanks so much!

Cheers, JOHN :0)

PS Here's another Planet of the Apes tribute from my book, "Take Me Away From All This!!".

Downtime... please stand by...

As part of my 're-creating', we are updating and upgrading the business, starting with

We are migrating to a new and better server, so you may experience a lot of white boxes with red 'x's in them. Please stand by.

It is weird doing this in the middle of The Ghost Pirate Skeletons of Three Craters Lake, but it had to be done since we were constantly running out of hosting space, having had the archives of two comic strips and a graphic novel in the system.

HappyGlyphs will now have unlimited space and bandwidth, and some nicer features which will give us all a nicer, easier way of doing things.

New strips are coming, a much better website is coming, and since I cannot send out a newsletter at the moment, all updates will be at this page for the meantime.

Hopefully we will be back in business by tomorrow(Tuesday) March 3rd.

Cheers, and wish me luck! JOHN :0)

PS Please enjoy these ancient comic strips I found from when I was first creating Knight and Day. 'Yikes' for the art, but the jokes are still good. :0) And if you like these, Steve and Amy's amusing and wonderful story can be found in my first book, "Take Me Away From All This!!"... an honest look at those first days of marriage. Remember, these were the practice strips... the strips in the book are much better, and tell the first year of Steve and Amy's marriage, with all the ups and downs of sharing space, and chores, and the fights, and making up, and even house hunting, job loss, and yes, a pregnancy. All very good stuff! Just ask anyone who's read the book. :0)
