Long Beach Comic Expo 2018 Aftermath

The beach may be long, but this weekend seemed really short. What am I talking about? The Long Beach Comic Expo that just happened this past weekend! It seemed to go by quickly. It was in Long Beach, California. I was trying to make a joke, but forget it.

Long Beach Comic Expo

Alright, let’s just get to this. As the first California convention for Poop Office, we were looking forward to hearing what Californians think of this crappy comic. We weren’t disappointed. The first person that approached the table on Saturday morning just gave us a traditional “Duuuude!” Here are some highlights from the rest of the weekend.

  • Shouldn’t there be different color poops? This is healthy, though.
  • I don’t even know the story and it already sounds great.
  • (Pointing at the poop action figures we give out in a mug shaped like a toilet bowl) Look, it’s the Cleveland Browns in the Super
  • I want a poop! Wow, I said that out loud.
  • (Little girl) I’d be able to work there. I smell like poop all the time!
  • (Pointing at poop) Mom, it’s you!
  • You can’t help but giggle when you come here.
  • My husband said I have to buy a poop book.
  • Wait, you can take this little poopy thing? (Referring to the poop action figures and whether they’re really free)
  • Where’s the nearest restroom? Oh, it’s right here. (Points at our table)
  • My wife said to me, “If you don’t get me anything else, get me Poop Office!”
  • That’s just not… right.
  • You hilarious as sh– , man! (He said “sh– -”, not the whole word)
  • (Man speaking to his wife) I want a free poop just so I can poop in your bag.
  • (A mom, to us, while buying something for her kid) I don’t get it, but I guess you guys get it.
  • This is really cool (Repeated probably 4 or 5 times)
  • Why is there so much poop?

The winner for “I’m Not Totally Sure What They Meant” goes to the kid that said this:

  • What are you supposed to do anyway?

Finally, the “We’re Not for Sale” award goes to the little girl who said this:

  • I want everything here. Even you guys. Even this table.

Thank you, Long Beach, for a fun show! We’ll see you again real soon.

Up next for us is Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, California May 19 and 20. I hear nothing but good things about this show, so we’re really looking forward to it!

Long Beach Comic Expo 2018 – The West Coast Debut

Now that Poop Office is operating on the west coast, it’s time to do a real west coast convention! This weekend February 17-18, Poop Office makes its west coast debut at the Long Beach Comic Expo. It’s at the beautiful Long Beach Convention Center (Hall A).

We’ll be at table B12 in the Artist Alley section. There’ll be stacks of the new Poop Office collected edition along with tons more plush dolls and catnip toys. We’ve spent the last several weeks cutting and sewing these things, and we’re ready to get rid of them! Please stop by and take some poop off our hands.

See you in Long Beach!

Baltimore Comic-Con 2017 Aftermath!

I usually don’t wait several weeks before posting some sort of write-up about a convention I attended, but my new job’s been really busy! Yeah, I have some time after work, but there’s television that needs watchin’! I got it all figured out now, though, so sit back and pretend that it’s still September and that NYCC hasn’t happened yet…

Whoa, another great Baltimore Comic-Con has come and gone! As always, it was great seeing everyone and all the great comics for sale! I bought a Venom magnet, so for me it was kind of the Baltimore Magnet-Con.

Usually a post a fun list of stuff people said at our table. This year, I think I’m going to give you a little more. I’m getting better at the social media thing, so there were plenty of photos posted on my Twitter and Instagram accounts. Definitely check those out, and “like” my Facebook page if you’re into that kind of thing.

What am I doing? This is not entertaining! You know what is entertaining? A kid dressed as a toilet holding a poop!

Kid dressed as a toilet holding a poop

Yep, that’s one of the Poop Office catnip cat toys that toilet’s holding. Right after this photo was taken, he ate that poop and said it was delicious. But he’s not the only one who loved that sweet, sweet taste. I got this cool video of very satisfied customer, a beautiful cat named Talula, who loved her new catnip toy.

The convention wasn’t all fun and games and toilets and cats, though. I went through a bit of an identity crisis around halfway through the con. I was considering completely switching around my business model, abandoning the whole Poop Office comic book thing and focusing entirely on pop culture mash-ups, or “Poop Culture” as I’d probably call it. I created a few prototypes before abandoning the idea as lacking integrity, but you can still take a look.

I'm Poop Rick!

Poop Rick needs some work. It was my first attempt, so cut me some slack!

Poop Jessica JonesPoop Matt Murdock

Poop X-23

All pretty horrible, right? If you want to see another one, just send me a tweet or something and request it. I’ll draw whatever you want, but I can’t guarantee I won’t draw it poorly!

Whatdya say we wrap this up, huh? I’ve got a nice big list of table comments for you. Some of them are weirder than ever! Here you go!

  • I sure noticed this! (Imitating herself) “Oh my god it’s Poop Office!”
  • (Pointing at the Poop Office collection) I was just thinking I needed something to spend 45 minutes with when I take a poop in the morning.
  • This is hilarious… This is poop… Oh my god… It’s poop…
  • I kind of like this, daddy. He’s called Poop Office! Poop! Poop! Poop!
  • I’m troubled by your plushie.
  • I’ve never been more excited about two words put together.
  • What is going on? I love it.
  • If I brought any of this stuff to the office, I’d get in trouble.
  • Look, Daddy! Poopy letters!
  • I don’t even want to know the details, the thought process, the guesswork… It’s awesome, but I don’t need to know.
  • That’s beautiful. You’re doing God’s good work!
  • We’re gonna play with our poop later.
  • Hell no!
  • (Looking at the Fumetti poster) Ew, why is it textured?
  • (Referring to the #2 Boss mug) I wish they had a #3 boss. I’d get that.
  • Poop Office: It gets everything… officey!
  • Younger brother (excitedly): Look here! Poops in a toilet
    Older brother: *shrugs in distinterest*

Presenting a new special category of parents who refuse to let their children indulge in their poop interests:

  • (Mom to child) I’m not buying you poop.
  • Daughter: Poop!
    Father: No, you’re not getting office poop!
  • (Father to kids) I’m not buying you a book about poop.

Lot of good ones this year, but I think my favorite is the following:

  • (Pointing at the plush dolls) Oh my god, is that a Diglett?! (After discovering it is not) Uhh ugh, oh nevermind, it’s not a Diglett.

My drawings and plush dolls have been mistaken for potatoes in this past, but this, being the first post-Pokémon Go convention we’ve exhibited at, is the first time it’s been mistaken for a Diglett. Can’t really blame them. Take away the mouth and add a big, pink nose and it’s a Diglett!

That’s all I got for you this time. It was a lot, though, so you can’t complain. Before I go, I want to announce that Poop Office will be appearing at two conventions in 2018. There may be more coming, but these are the two I’ve paid for so far!

The first is the Long Beach Comic Expo in Long Beach, California on February 17 and 18. The second is Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, California on May 19 and 20. These are the first west coast convention appearances for Poop Office (i.e., poopearances), so we’re pretty excited. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

But until then… Keep Poopin’!

Back at the Baltimore Comic-Con

Remember when I announced that I’d moved to the west coast and was going to start going to west coast conventions? That’s still all true, but I also love the Baltimore Comic-Con. That’s why all the poops are going to be packing up and flying back east for this year’s show!

That’s right, this weekend from September 22-24, you can find Poop Office, including the new collection and associated merchandise, in Artist Alley at Table A61. I’m going to be selling the new Poop Office collection for less than cover price, too, to celebrate the big release!

What’s that? You’re more of a visual learner and would prefer a map of some sort? Well, check back… tomorr– Oh wait, I’ve got a map right here. No waiting required!

Artist Alley Table A61

While you’re there, be sure to pick up the Baltimore Comic-Con exclusive crab mallet! It’s probably the only convention that ever sells such a product, so you don’t want to miss out.

And thus concludes the third big announcement of the week! I think this is the last one, but if I think of something else, I’ll let you all know.

But until then…

Awesome Con DC 2016 Aftermath!

Awesome Con DC was two weeks ago! I’m a little late on this one, but cut me some slack. I had a lot to recover from, including this awesome fan art (which put me in the same company as Tom King, Franco, and Sam Ellis!). I also got to do two T-shirt sketches (those are drawings on T-shirts, not of T-shirts), which is a first.

Poop Office Fan Art

What wasn’t a first was hearing lots of interesting stuff at the table! So without further ado, here’s the greatest hits. There are a lot, but that’s just because people are very talkative in Washington, DC.

  • Oh, it’s actually a comic.
  • Somebody needed to do this.
  • I am not embarrassed to say that I want to buy these.
  • Kid: Can I get one of these? Mom: Seriously?
  • It is poop. And it’s beautiful.
  • (Explaining why the plush dolls shouldn’t have happy expressions) Could you imagine a smiling poop? Look in the toilet and it’s smiling back at you? That’s like something out of Stephen King.
  • Poop! (Caresses the catnip toys) Precious poop!
  • ¡Mierda!
  • (To his friend) This is where I got the poop plushie you see me cuddling with all the time.
  • This is wrong. This is just wrong! Ugh, I just…
  • Me: You can look through the comics if you like. Kid: Eh.
  • (Mother talking to her child) It’s poop acting like people. That’s called “personification.”
  • This actually makes me want to go to the bathroom.
  • Husband: It’s poop. Wife (deadpan): Yeah, I know.
  • My brother texted me and said, “Get me a poop action figure.” What is that?
  • I have great respect for you people.
  • (Regarding the poop action figures) Eww, they’ve been up somebody’s butt! (Not actually true)
  • You guys have poop action figures? Oh my gawd!
  • If I got one of these [plush dolls] for Christmas I could sleep better at night!
  • (Picks up a poop action figure with a blank expression drawn on it) This one, it captures my soul.
  • (Little kid) Why are you doing a comic about poop?!
  • Babe, I want a turd!
  • It’s a potato!
  • Fecal matter is everywhere.
  • Poop Office! Yay! (Begins clapping their hands)
  • (Looking at the “#2 Boss” mug) Hashtag two boss.
  • (Looks at cover of issue #4) Mom: Eww, the water’s yellow. Kid: Yeah, because it’s pee.
  • I’m pretty sure if I got something like this for my husband he would get in trouble at work.
  • This is the poop center.
  • Your booth made me laugh in the best way possible.

And now for the specialty categories!

Signs that Poop Office is famous:
  • This is funny from last year.
  • Here’s the poop table!
  • I’m so excited the poop people are here!
  • This is the poop man.
  • Poop Office is famous. Everyone is talking about it.
Most Creative Award (using Poop Office products to insult each other):
  • Person #1: (Points to one of the poop button and says to friend) This is you! Person #2: (Points to issue #2) This is your mom! (Person #1 points to plush) This is your brother!
Most Self-Aware Award:
  • Guy: I appreciate this. Me: I appreciate you appreciating this. Guy again: You’d probably appreciate me more if I bought something. (He didn’t buy anything)
Most Educational Award (for teaching me that calling someone an egg is a thing):
  • We need to throw this at [our friend] when he’s being an egg.
All Around Winner Award:
  • (Regarding the action figures marked as free) Does this pay any dollars?

In case you’re wondering, no the free poop action figures you can pick up at our convention appearances do not pay any dollars. But they are free.

AwesomeCon DC 2016 – Table M8

AwesomeCon DC

It’s that time of year again — AwesomeCon DC time!
Me and the poops are going to be in Artist Alley at table M8.
I think we’re right next to the Geek Balloonist.

Here’s a map to help you find your way to our table.
Notice how I crossed out “awesome” and wrote in “poop”?
That’s kind of cute, right? I did that with my mouse.

Poop Office Table M8

Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 Aftermath!

Baltimore Comic-Con

I’m still recovering from what was our most successful Baltimore Comic-Con yet! It was a great convention this year. The weather was nice. The people were nice. And I got to see Edward James Olmos‘ mustache from 30 feet away!

This was also the first con that we tried advertising in the bathroom. They were only up for a few hours on Friday before the convention center staff cleaned them up, so I think we probably weren’t allowed to post stuff there. Oh well. Maybe next time! We got compliments about the ads, so I thought I’d post it here for anyone who missed it.

You smelled the poop. Now read the comic!

Big thanks to everyone who came by to see us. For those who couldn’t make it, Poop Office #6 is now available in digital form on the store page. If you’re a ComiXology fan, I’m working on getting Poop Office #6 up there, too. It’ll probably be a few weeks, though.

Anyway, let’s get to the main event! Here’s what people were saying around the Poop Office table this year:

  • I think [our cat] would like that [catnip toy]. She needs it!
  • I’m looking for a special poop.
  • (Pointing at the cover to issue #4) Is that piss in the water jug? Oh god. I’m done. (leaves)
  • I want to laugh but I don’t want to be insulting.
  • (Re: poop plush) Child: I want one of these. Parent: No!
  • I gather you guys love bowel movements.
  • Poop, there it is!
  • This is a very attractive nuisance for children.
  • Oh look, it’s the poops again!
  • Power Girl: I have to say that was really slick putting ads in the stalls. Frickin’ brilliant.
  • You guys keep doing what you’re doing.
  • Alright, give me the shit!
  • I’m sure you get this a lot — they look like burnt chicken nuggets.
  • (While taking someone’s photo in front of the plushes) Say ‘Poop’!
  • I’m gonna get in trouble for this, but… (buys something)
  • I don’t like this. I don’t like it because it’s poop.
  • Look! Little shits!
  • (Girl had whole stuffed poop collection at home) I got poop! This is my third poop doll!
  • (Regarding his wife) Of all the comics I bought, this one upset her the most.
  • Really? Shit art?
  • I look forward to reading these, God help me.
  • (After handing him the free sketch I did for him) Last year you were the best buy of the convention. This year you’re the best sketch.
The winner in the “I can’t remember if it was the mom or the child who liked/disliked Poop Office” category is:
  • Mom: But it’s poop! Child: Mom, you just don’t understand.

Baltimore Comic-Con 2015

Baltimore Comic-Con

Poopert and the rest of the gang from Poop Office (including me) are back to stink up Charm City this weekend! We’ll all be at the Baltimore Comic-Con at table A70. Stop by and fart hello!

Poop Office @ Table A70

I'll see you in Baltimore!


HeroesCon 2015 Aftermath!

I’m still recovering from this weekend’s HeroesCon. It was our first trip there. I’d heard about how great this convention was my whole life, and it definitely lived up to the hype! Charlotte’s a beautiful city, the con was a true celebration of comic books, and the evening events had free guacamole! What more could you ask for? I want to send a big thank you to everyone we met this weekend! We definitely had a lot of fun and will probably be returning to HeroesCon sometime in the future.

Poop Office's table was right next to the bathroom

Our table was literally right next to one of the bathrooms. It was so right next to it that people pointed it out more than once every 10-15 minutes (seriously, we counted), which was fun!

Here are some other things people said to us:

  • I want to hold your poop in my hands.
  • That’s so funny, I’m gonna die.
  • It’s poop time.
  • It’s awkward going to the bathroom right next to the poop sign.
  • I don’t condone this.
  • This needs to be made into a motion picture.
  • I would invest in this.
  • (Mother of two children joins them at the table) Of course this is where I would find my boys.
  • (Smells one of the plush dolls) This smells like a stuffed animal.
  • (Notices we’re right next to the bathroom) They got the Poop Office next to the poop office!
  • This is probably the only time where you’d say, “Yes! I got seated next to the bathroom!”

There were a few kids that thought we were selling potato/peanut merchandise:

  • Daddy, look! Potatoes!
  • Look, potato people!
  • It’s a peanut!

This con’s winner is the guy who managed to see through my entire scam!

  • Really… you sell stuffed brown pillows and call it poop?

Honorable mention goes to the “y’all” comments we got:

  • Y’all are hilarious.
  • Y’all are brilliant.
  • Y’all are crazy, you know that?

And now please take a moment of silence to remember those that didn’t make it:

Dead poops

RIP Smashy, Sleepy, Scar, and Befuddled


HeroesCon 2015


Poop Office is will be appearing at yet another convention! This time we’ll be at HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Charlotte Convention Center June 19-21. Follow the stink to Table AA-63 in Artist Alley, in the very back-right corner of the convention hall next to the restrooms.
