Let me preface this by saying Gary Oldman is a GREAT actor and among my favorites. True Romance, The Professional and The Fifth Element are EXCELLENT! It just seems that now Gary Oldman is in the same boat as Morgan Freeman just playing himself more or less. In the last few movies I saw him in he looked like he walked off the set, changed clothes and went right to the next movie. I think wearing glasses may be in his contract. Here’s hoping that another character like Drexl Spivey is in his future.
Being laid off is definitely a shock to the system. We all deal with it differently. Doug builds a couch nest, eats pizza, drinks beer, watches DVD box sets of Stargate SG1 and forgets to shower.

Happy Holidays from dot Problems! See you in 2014!
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!
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!
