It’s Saturday, which means it’s time for our Saturday Sci-Fi Series: Drive.

Just a reminder: You can now read the archives easily, in order — and including all the “historical” documents from the empire — over HERE.


The horror….the horror….

My joking idea from the other week seems to have been more prophetic than I ever could’ve feared.

I’m speaking, of course, about the “Star Wars Babies” strips (Read ’em here: ONE, TWO).

It turns out that Ol’ George is actually pursuing this idea.

Next up: My jokes on “Star Wars: Golden Girls Edition”, starring Betty White.

Appearance Added!

For those of you in/around Los Angeles, some news: I’ve added an April 7 book signing at Metropolis Comics in Bellflower, CA, from 5-8 PM, with fellow cartoonist David Malki.

I should have all the Sheldon books with me, plus the prints. And a super exclusive which isn’t in the Sheldon Store yet: HUGS.*

*Note: Offer invalid if you’re all sweaty from a jog or somethin’.

Read “Drive” Archives in Order

There’s a new way to read “Drive”.

We’re still working on the full-function, separate site for Drive…but a lot of you have been asking for a way to easily read the strips in order.

And you know what? You’re right. It’s a long-form story, with a prologue that takes place 143 years before the main story, has a mix of historical “documents” thrown in, and a bunch of other stuff that just needs its own webspace to live.

So! Thanks to the kindness and brilliance of resident Sheldon tech guru Phillip Karlsson, we now have a separate sub-directory for Drive.

The new site will replace this, once it comes online…but in the meantime, it’s a great way to read the strip:


Two more pics from Seattle…

These are coming in late, but they’re both sufficiently weird enough pics that they’re worth adding, just for the laugh:

Exhibit A: A sketch request for Arthur in a cupcake car:

Exhibit B: Another completely random pose with a Sheldon reader:

3-D Printing of Sheldon

At Emerald City Comicon, a really nice Sheldon reader named Matthew asked if he could do some 3-D printing of Sheldon characters, or Drive characters/ships.

Having worked at Mattel Toys, and fallen in love with their super-expensive 3-D printers waaaaaay in the back of the Mattel Design Center, I of course said “Yes!” ….3-D printing is awesome. (Not familiar with it? Here’s a sped-up YouTube video to give you the basic idea.)

Anyway, to do a 3-D printing, Matthew needs a CAD-type file that could be “loaded into Blender or Sketchup”, which, I’ll be honest, I don’t have. I just draws ’em, I don’t have the skill to model ’em.

But! I know there are a few Sheldonistas out there who have started CAD files of Drive ships, or who have hand-sculpted Sheldon characters in the past. If the former would be willing to share their files, or the latter be willing to do a 3-D scan — if they have access to one — send ’em on to Matthew! Matthew notes that “simpler models print best.”


Saturday Sci-Fi: Drive!

It’s Saturday! That means it’s time for our sci-fi series, “Drive”.

Just a reminder: When the emperor mentions a “Veetan”, he’s talking about our big, Russian-sounding friend Nosh. But maybe that goes without saying! This story is unfolding slow enough, at one entry per week, that I don’t want to assume you remember what happened 20 weeks back. 🙂

Anyway, here are the full archives in order:

Text Entry: Continuum,
Text Entry: Secrets,
Text Entry: Veetans,
#16, #17, Text Entry: Memos, #18, #19, #20, #21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28, #29.


Lots of census-takers, census-cartographers, and census-statiticians have written in saying they’ve enjoyed the last two days of strips, which is great!

Related question: Who knew so many census-related employees read Sheldon? Guys, all I ask is that when you get my returned census form, you don’t call me on the fact that I put down “Breen” as my race. IT IS A LEGITIMATE RACE IN STAR TREK.

Wondercon Cancellation

A heads up to San Franciscans: Due to two family events, I had to cancel my appearance at Wondercon. My apologies for that — I was really looking forward to going! But you guys understand…family’s gotta come first.

Next year, I promise!
