I’ll be honest; I had NO idea what Krampus was. I originally heard about it through the Venture Brothers cartoon but thought it was something THEY made up. I had no idea it was actual folklore! I’m guessing the Coca-Cola corporation didn’t really want to market a demon so they went with Santa. Good call Coke. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your holiday, whichever one that may be!
When it was announced that Hostess was going out of business people freaked out and Twinkies started selling on eBay for crazy prices. This was Doug’s reaction. Personally I think some smart company will buy Hostess to keep feeding us that glorious, yellow, high fructose corn syrup treat! Not that we need it…

Great Scott! dot Problems turns 3 years old today! Yeah! Who’da thunk it?
Prometheus comes out tomorrow and I can’t wait to see it! Ridley Scott announced that he’s going to do a sequel to Blade Runner (which is also awesome) and that led me to wonder what other movies he might revisit. For the record, I’m totally hoping for a Legend prequel/sequel. Seriously.
I also uploaded a video of the creation of this strip from inks to completion. Check it out on my YouTube channel and subscribe!
First off, this is NOT a joke. Well it kinda is but it’s not an “April Fool’s” joke. Michael Bay announced that they will be rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as aliens. Yup, aliens. This caused quite a backlash on the Internet for all of us that grew up with the “classic” TMNT comics, cartoons and live action movies. Bay tried to back peddle a bit saying it stays true to the source material but I guess we will see. As for Total Recall, it seems it will not take place on Mars much to the dismay of most of us. Who knows maybe they are saving the Mars stuff as a surprise. It would be nice not to know every single spoiler. Go ninja, go ninja, GO!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This year St. Patrick’s Day falls on the same weekend as WonderCon! This year it’s in Anaheim, right down the street from me so I’ll be there! I still have some Dot Problems magnets so if you want one, find me! I’m bringing my girlfriend and her nephews and this will be the boys very first comic-con! I can’t wait to see their faces!
If I met you at WonderCon please LIKE my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I really wanted to post a Valentine’s Day themed strip but couldn’t think of the right one until this image popped into my head. I still get shivers. Anyway, I hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day with your loved one, cyber sweetheart or stalkee!
Oddly enough Doug has great penmanship when it comes to this.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
See you in 2012!
Thanksgiving already? Time flies. Doug forgot to invite anybody to his Thanksgiving dinner but that probably won’t stop him from eating it all.
First off I apologize to anyone who is offended by this strip. I meant no ill will, the idea came from a friend of mine who is known to come to Halloween parties dressed as a famous person who recently died, was injured or had something terrible happen to them. His past costumes have been Princess Di post crash, Michael Jackson with children attached to him and Siegfried (or was it Roy) post tiger attack just to give you an idea. After last years comic strip I figured Doug had that same mentality so he upped the ante with a Dan Wheldon costume. I think the other option he would have went with was Steve Jobs. Again, sorry.
If you are here because you got a free magnet at NYCC or LBCC, WELCOME! Tweet me @dotproblems!
After taking a week off for vacation, coming back to reality was a bit hard. I think I’m STILL on island time. I’ve been playing Dead Island for the XBOX and it brings me back to the resort we stayed at…well minus the zombie-pacolpyse. For Doug all it means is coming home to a stable Internet connection and liberally applying aloe vera occasionally.
