  1. theheroesofcrash.com One of my favorite website traditions is the annual April Fools' Day filler. I'm not big on practical jokes, myself... but Cannon sure is, which is why he pranks a character from someone else's webcomic every year! This year's target is the Happy Homemaker - a supervillainess bent on taking away her fellow woman's choice to have a career. Her arch-nemesis is the feminist superheroine Gyno-Star, who appears in the last panel. If you want to read a feminist webcomic whose wit and flawed heroes are reminiscent of one of the GOOD seasons of The Simpsons, then check out The Adventures of Gyno-Star via my Links page! Many thanks to the talented Rebecca Cohen for letting me borrow her characters! Last year, I had considered having Cannon play a prank on Gyno-Star, but I couldn't think of a practical joke that was clever enough. I like to make Cannon's pranks take advantage of the target's attributes, or at least be poetic in some way. While Gyno-Star does have a few character flaws (she can be a bit vain or self-absorbed at times), I didn't feel like Cannon's pranks could take full advantage of that, and I felt that it wouldn't be right for Cannon to play a prank that mocked Gyno-Star's feminist ideals (That's the sort of thing that Gyno-Star's villains would do). This year, I considered Gyno-Star again, but then I thought it would be fun for him to prank one of Gyno-Star's villains, and playing this joke on the Happy Homemaker just sprang to mind. I have to be honest, Happy Homemaker looks kinda like an evil version of my own mom in that first panel. But I suppose that she is, essentially, an evil mom, having unsuccessfully attempted to rebrand herself as "The Stay-At-Home-Mom". I had fun drawing her retro 1950s look, which seems to work well with my drawing style (Which was partially inspired by retro-style cartoons). Sharp-eyed viewers might notice that one picture frame reads "Lair Sweet Lair" (although it's partly obscured by a text balloon). I liked that gag, as well as "Out Darn Spot" (If that's not the name of a cleaning product, it should be!). Drawing this comic was a lot of fun, which probably made it easier to stay focused and complete it in record time (I submitted it to Rebecca Cohen for approval before posting it). I consider it an honor that she liked the concept when I first proposed it, and an even greater honor that she liked the finished product! :-D I do like making fan art, but if you want to let me know how much you like MY characters, don't forget that I still have my annual Fan Art Contest going on! You can click the "Contest Rules an' Stuff" button on my main page in order to read the rules in FULL detail. Be aware that I've tweaked the contest this year, and now EVERYONE is guaranteed a prize! So click that button for all the specific details, and have fun entering!
  2. theheroesofcrash.com These tips all work pretty well for me (aside from scheduling; I tend to have only a few holiday-based responsibilities outside of work). Anyone who knows me, knows that as soon as December begins, I practically turn into a Christmas elf with enough holiday cheer to light up the tree in Rockefeller Center. I was initially going to have the radio play Christmas music (One local station has already started! Ugh!) to hammer home the idea that we start Christmas too early, but I decided to go with a slightly more obscure joke and have the radio start playing Alice's Restaurant. Fans of this song know that it's played EVERY Thanksgiving on many radio stations across the country (My family always listens... especially my mom and my sister Tyler Winthrop , who are HUGE Arlo Guthrie fans!). I recommend giving this song a listen, especially in light of certain political events as of late. Those of you who are anxiously awaiting the next canonical strip are probably a tad frustrated, having three fillers in four weeks, but we have had two holidays and one disastrous election I wanted to address. I do hope you've been enjoying my fillers, but if not, I plan on making the next four updates be canonical comics, up until the Christmas and New Year's fillers. In the meantime, have a happy Thanksgiving!
  3. I'm gonna be in San Antonio, Texas for a week and a half (starting Monday), so the site won't update until I get back. But don't despair, because I've got two things that will keep you amused in the meantime. First, I'm still doing Daily Drawings, which I'll be posting on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook, as usual. Second, I've created The Playlist of C.R.A.S.H. - a collection of songs related to your favorite HoC characters. Search for my playlist on Spotify, or recreate it yourself! Now you may be wondering why I chose these particular songs. Most of them are songs that I feel capture each character's personality and/or their taste in music. Want more specifics? Okay: Belt Boy - Superman seemed like the kind of catchy, upbeat song Belt Boy would like, plus it's about superheroes. Corner of the Sky capture's BB's dreams of meeting his destiny as a great hero. Titanium Maiden - I think these song titles speak for themselves. Heh heh! Cannon - Cheer Up captures Cannon's sarcastic attitude toward life pretty well, whereas EVERYTHING EXPLODES is all about his love of blowin' stuff up, as well as video games (it's by the same band that did the music for the Scott Pilgrim game!) B.O.N.N.I.E. - A song by a robot A.I. and a song associated with internet mischief... Gee, what could those have to do with B.O.N.N.I.E.? Caped Cod - Because "Under the Sea" was too obvious. Enticia - A song about Enticia enjoying life, and one about her confidence (with just a smidgeon of egotism). The former was harder to pick for Enticia, as I wanted to use a song by a black female artist that didn't use any swears, but also had an element of "girl power" to it; it took a lot of searching to find this song. Unk - I feel like these songs show off how mellow Unk really is. They also seem to suggest Unk has some sort of link to the beach or islands... Jackknife - Because no one likes Jackknife. Nyah, nyah! Dino-Mo - Do I really need to explain this one? Dodge - The first song was obvious, and Eye of the Tiger seemed like the kind of song Dodge would listen to while working out. Sugar Rush - How much more obvious can I get? Gelatin Boy - Ennui (On We Go) sums up Gelatin Boy's pessimism pretty well, while the second one shows that GB can relate to the often-mocked Aquaman. Bonus songs - Just a handful of songs that I've heard over the years and thought were appropriate. We Are Giants is particularly appropriate if you check out the music video. Cartoon Heroes seemed very appropriate to end the playlist, as it addresses just how toony and zany my superheroes are. It also gets a little meta, pushing against (but not breaking) the fourth wall like a cartoonist's signature. What better way to end it?
