There is a battle coming up in Goblins. An important one. For years, my notes have described the scenery of this battle as follows... "...in a clearing... [edit] ...young trees, mostly pine and maple. Light, thorny underbrush." That's it. Boring. I really like introducing interesting landscapes for battles to take place in. An upside-down forest room, a stone bridge at a dungeon crawl entrance, a carefully balanced platform hanging from giant chains, in the cleavage of a 900 foot woman (okay, that one never happened). So when I stumbled upon an absolutely beautiful spot tucked deep in the woods near my house, I instantly knew that it would be the location of the battle. Now when I say "location of the battle", I mean that I'll be drawing it into the comic, not that it'll actually be a real spot where fighting will... you know what, if you're confused about that point, I'm just going to leave you to it. Here's the video of Danielle and I (and our dog, Ember) walking to the battle spot. It's mostly just us walking through the forest. Also, it's really shaky camera work. However, it is a unique opportunity to see a real life version of a place where a webcomic battle will happen. To my knowledge, a comic book landscape has never been introduced this way before. Also, Danielle made a webpage for our wedding. If you want to pop in and sign the guestbook, I know it'll make her squee. Thanks so much to those of you who have already commented in it! And if you're not following me on Twitter, please do so. It's a great way to support the comic! Also, I'm drawing live on cam right now. As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt

I'm drawing live, for those who are bored and want to hang out with a mouthy Canadian. EDIT: Broadcast ended. Thanks for hanging out! Follow me on Twitter to catch my next broadcast! As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt

On June 20th, there will be a bonus update written/drawn by the legendary Phil Kahn and T. Campbell. If you don't already know who they are, they create the webcomic Guilded Age as well as many other projects that have influenced the webcomic genre. If you like Goblins, odds are, you'll like Guilded Age. I do. EDIT: The page was written by T. Campbell and Phil Kahn. The artwork is by John Waltrip. My HUGE apologies to Mr. Waltrip. You can read about all three of them here. This guest comic is a bonus page and will not interrupt the main comic schedule (Goblins updates every Tues/Fri). Just a heads up though, I'm getting married August 4th and leaving for my honeymoon on August 8th. So expect some sort of disruption during that time. I know, I know. ;) As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt

Did you know that Goblins has never been advertised? By that, I mean I've never spent money to get the word out about it. This is something that Danielle and I are planning on doing in the near future. We have a couple plans that we're discussing. But while we work on letting more people know about Goblins, so can you! How? Make a video and put it up on Youtube. It can be anything. Write and perform a song, re-enact a scene from the comic, talk about which character you like best, dance with your Big Ears plushie. Anything. Feel free to use my artwork in any way you like for this. The Goblins Youtube Video with the most views as of my wedding day (August 4th, 2012) will receive some original Goblins artwork (a couple panels from the comic), a Big Ears plushie for each person *featured in the video (up to a maximum of five plushies), signed copies of Books 1 and 2, and a signed copy of every Goblins book that I come out with. Forever. The Goblins Youtube Video that Danielle and I pick as our favourite (also on August 4th), will also receive original artwork, a Big Ears plushie for each person *featured in the video (maximum of five plushies) and the same "forever" deal with the signed books. We'll make sure that that this video is different than the 'most viewed' video. (* "featured" means that they're actually a part of your video. I don't want to see you pointing a camera at strangers in line at the bank or your Avengers poster and saying "That's more than five people! I want FIVE plushies, Thunt". Voice actors count as people and the creator gets a plushie even if he/she is never on screen.) Once your video is on Youtube, email me a link (my email is goblins@dccnet.com). I'll link all the vids on my page so you can all check 'em out. Or... If you're lazy like me, you could simply tell someone about Goblins. Tell your friends, enemies, the guy who works at the corner store, that weird lady who hangs out at the bus stop smelling like cheese and yelling at the clouds... anyone. You could even put a link in your forum sig or use a Goblins character for your avatar. Although these things do help the comic, they don't get you a prize. I told you, I'm lazy. Some things that you should NOT do are, spam anyone (ever), pester celebrities to read/endorse Goblins, anything illegal or anything dangerous. EDIT: All submitted videos can be seen by going to the pull-down menu: Fan Community>Goblins Vids or by clicking here. As always, thanks for reading! ~Thunt

I have it on good authority that this is exactly what will go down in Avengers 2.

As always, thanks for reading.
