I've been toying around with Barb's origin for a while now. There's a definite rhyme to the reason - she has had her soul taken over by a Norseperson - and I've been thinking of ways to tell that person's story for some time. At one point I was going to do a companion book, but I think that may confuse readers when they see two separate books under the same header. At the same time, shifting the narrative from now to ancient times may be a bit much, because I may not want to return once I start having fun in that realm.

Don't worry...I'll figure something out. We're in no rush here. It's not that I don't know the story I want to's HOW I want to tell said story.

MUGS ARE BACK!: The House of Haha has informed me their printer is making mugs again! Which is cool because one of my favorite things right now is the Bounty Hunter mug I'm proud to own!

Got my first shirts (and coffee mug) (I must've been the last mug order) back from House of Haha (with the earlier Bounty Road design to them) and I was pretty much blown away. I can tell you to buy with confidence'll get a nice looking product for your money. As if there was any doubt! :)

The latest insanity from Studio Fugazi is now available on t-shirts, tote bags, and hats from the mad, beautiful people at House of Haha!

I told you we'd have Barbrabarian shirts, and other sundry merchandise! This is the first of a couple fun designs I have planned. I'm also going to work on a logo-only design which I think will look really nice on a shirt or mug. I'm really excited about this...I mean something I created is actually going to be worn by people...actual people! :)

Click the links above to see the craziness. And sleep well in the knowledge that by buying something you're supporting not one but two small independent businesses.
