Todayâ€™s Quick Strip is a gag comic called Disclosure by Andy Carolan. The tagline says it is â€œthe shocking truth about alien life on Earth.â€ Itâ€™s high time we had the real story behind that, donâ€™t you agree?
It features aliens doing fun alien things like creating crop circles, visiting Mars and experimenting on Earthâ€™s lifeforms. It turns out they also have to make saucer payments and like to drink strange brews of coffee.

As you probably already know, if you shop at Amazon via any link or banner here at Schlock Mercenary, we here at Chez Tayler get somewhere between 3% and 8% of the money you spend. This is money that comes out of Amazonâ€™s marketing overhead. Itâ€™s a cost that has already been passed along to consumers.

Iâ€™m a bit late on posting this (just came back last night from a long interstate roadtrip up and down some snow covered mountains), but when you get a chance, check out Comixtalkâ€™s End of the Year Roundtable.
The chat involves luminaries like Gary Tyrrell from FLEEN, Delos Woodruff from ArtPatient, Brigid Alverson from Robot 6 and Paperless Comics, and Johanna Draper Carlson from Comics Worth Reading. Also some ridiculous joker named â€œEl Santoâ€ somehow got included on the roster. Come see what people who read webcomics thought of the year! And find out my prediction for the ultimate fate of Bad Machinery.

Fantagraphics (E.C.Segar) 2006
Of the classic comic strip reprint editions which were spurred by Fantagraphicsâ€™ lovely Complete Peanuts set, thereâ€™s probably none so welcome nor needed as much as the titanic Popeye volumes (of which four of the planned six have so far been released, meaning that lining them up allows the spines to spell â€œPOPEâ€ across your bookshelf). Picking up in the thick of Elzie Segarâ€™s Thimble Theater strip, the series starts with Popeyeâ€™s debut and subsequent explosive popularity.

Today’s review is on a comic named Today Nothing Happened. It’s something of a misnomer because something crazy happens in every update. Be warned, there are a lot of comics involving role playing and art classes all mixed in with the panic of daily life. And cats. Which sometimes fight. But that’s to be expected since it’s an artist’s journal comic.
