In today's San Francisco Chronicle, elves need jobs. Do you have any available positions?
If you can read French, or simply enjoy the mystery of foreign languages, you'll be excited to hear that the French edition of Truth Serum Conversations has gone to the printers. It will be available from Cambourakis. Expect everything the English version has, but without the comfort of recognizable words. Here's the cover.
Now that Halloween has been ruined, there are few ways to enjoy it. Fortunately, we have a treat for you – a Halloween-themed comic! Half the Battle includes cameos from G.I. Joe, Pac-Man, Strawberry Shortcake, Portly Smurf, and more!
When someone offers you money to draw a baby monster, you draw a baby monster.
In stores now is Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies, featuring our very dark story "BAM!" It's only two pages so you could totally read it in the store before getting yelled at for treating the store like a library. And don't worry if you're a slow reader because there are literally only two words and you probbaly already know them.
Want a drink so good it will make you cry? Good, because we want you to cry – cry right into your mouth as part of our tear juice recipe, featured in newspapers across the country yesterday as part of The Goods by McSweeney's. If you missed it, you're probbaly already crying. If only you had our recipe to help turn those tears into a thirst-quenching beverage.
Never ones to jump a bandwagon, we like to wait until the wagon is so heavy with passengers that it's slowed to a crawl and there is barely room for anyone else. So, we've joined Twitter. That's right, the same Twitter everyone won't shut up about.
The Savage Dragon doesn't hate women the way this image implies. In fact, he loves women, but his relationship with this one is complicated. You can see just how vulnerable this muscle-bound man-dragon is in our story appearing in Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies, an enormous, 144-page book, available for pre-order now.

Last year we brought you The Jerk Machine, by way of Mome. Out now, volume 21 of Mome contains our short story "Almost Candied Chimera," featuring the unknowable Happy Hardaway. Your local comic store probably has a copy, so might Borders (if they're still in business), and Fantagraphics definitely does.
Friendship Town, our weekly comic which runs in the San Francisco Chronicle is now available for online consumption. Read it here, each and every week. In celebration, here are several strips the Chronicle rejected.
Now available from McSweeney's is our Brian Wilson (of the Giants and incongruous beard fame) poster. Learn how to grow a beard just like Brian's for only $8.
Now you have one less reason to not read a newspaper. McSweeney's has begun producing The Goods, a weekly supplement of kid's activity pages, syndicated to papers across the nation. The first included our Body Limits activity (excerpt below), where children are encouraged to test their physical limits.
There's this thing, here.
Not only is this website available wherever the internet is found, but now these other things are also available to the world.
1. Truth Serum is now appearing in Italian magazine Internationale. If you're in Italy, pick up a copy. If you're not, then never mind. We weren't talking to you anyway.
2. UK web magazine Don't Panic has an interview with Jon Adams.
3. Later this year, expect Truth Serum Conversations to appear as a hardcover edition in France. If you don't speak French it won't be of much use to you. So maybe you should try the English edition, available in our store.
