Annoyingly, our manufacturer (not us, don’t shoot!) has experienced some delays in the production of the Dawn Tripod figurine. The release date has therefore been pushed back to 05 May 2014.
We apologize for this delay and any convenience caused.

OMG, Azure Striker Gunvolt is the new Mega Man ZX ⊟
Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero/ZX) announced this beauty at BitSummit, and it’s coming out exclusively for eShop this summer in Japan. Considering there are English subtitles and an ESRB rating is pending, a North American release for Azure Striker Gunvolt seems like a sure bet.
Soooo… when is Keiji Inafune gonna announce his version of Mega Man Legends with the serial number filed off and complete the trifecta?
Did you guys know that carrots are actually bad for rabbits? They’re too high in sugar and can lead to tooth decay and other serious health defects in our furry little friends. So why did Bugs Bunny eat them all the time? Because of Clark Gable, that’s why.
The reference might not seem so obvious to us know, but when Bugs first appeared in theaters over seventy years ago the audience immediately understood that when Bugs ate a carrot and talked with his mouth full; he was parodying Clark Cable in Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934).
It turns out that, according to Friz Freleng’s unpublished memoirs, that It Happened One Night was one the animators favorite films and that at least three characteristics of Bugs Bunny are based on the film. Besides Clark Gable inspiring Bugs’ carrot addiction; his personality was based on Oscar Shapely, a minor character in the film who consistently referred to Gable as Doc. Not only that, the famous Rabbit was named after Bugs Dooley; an imaginary character mentioned in the film.
Sure, It Happened One Night is considered to be one the best romantic comedies of all time, and it might have been directed by Frank Capra, who’s arguably the greatest American film director ever; but this might be one of those rare cases where the parody has outlived the original reference.
Support Peter & Company via Patreon
What is Patreon: Think of it like an ongoing Kickstarter. It’s a new system that allows for readers of original online content to directly support the creators of the series they love. If you become a patron, you can choose any dollar amount (even just $1) to contribute each time a new update is posted.
You can also set a monthly budget for your donations: if you want to donate $5 a page, but set your cap at $10, it will only apply to the first two content updates each month. There are also both individual rewards and overall milestones (cumulative of all donors combined), so becoming a patron carries a lot of incentives!
For Peter & Company, I have set several levels of rewards for individual pledge amounts:
For at least $5: You will be granted access to the P&C Pledge Sketch Club! Throughout each month I will schedule a number of special Livestreams where I will draw free sketches for members of this group. Simply show up to the stream, tell me what you want me to draw, and I’ll make it happen (within limits).
For at least $10: The $5 tier reward, and also receive a signed and sketched copy of the first Peter & Company book collection!
For at least $20: The $10 tier rewards, plus a signed & sketched copy of the upcoming second P&C book, “Of Cats and Crushes.”
For at least $30: The $20 tier, plus a special collector’s edition of the upcoming Peter & Company Bible, an in depth behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming animated series. Includes a wealth of character art, series notes, and details on the process of moving from comics to animation.
By pledging as a patron to Peter and Company, you will be contributing to both the comic and the future animated series. The more funds we can raise for the series’ budget, the better quality we will be able to make the pilot episode and the greater chance we have of delivering a successful pitch. Individual comic updates will continue even after the animated series is launched, and will be posted to the official site regularly on Mondays.
Regardless of whether or not you are able to pledge, I would like to thank everyone who has been following and enjoying Peter & Company over the years. Whitney and I have been completely blown away by the level of kindness and support we’ve received from everyone, especially these past few months. You guys are simply the greatest people in the world to us!
