Life Finds A Way

For certain values of life, that is; in this case, the value would be The minions of a belligerent, poisonous space potato. The way found is how to ship the finest in webcomics merch to you in times of isolation:

Hello! Here’s some good news. Starting today we’re shipping orders again! We’ve figured out a one-person-in-the-warehouse-at-a-time policy that includes rigorous sanitizing before and after shifts.

The precautions we’re taking exceed those advised by the CDC and WHO, both of whom have indicated there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.

Due to these precautions, shipping will be slower than normal. Please allow 4-8 business days for your order to ship (this is subject to change depending on the Situation¹).

However, due to widespread service disruptions that change on an almost daily basis, we will be holding on to non-US orders for a while longer until things clear up. As always, if you have any questions please contact us here or at

And huge thanks to our team: Agent Paperklip, @tomselleck69, @CptOblivion, @MrReciprocity, and The Marlboro Kid!

Hey, you know how you can add little notes to your TopatoCo order that get read by whoever is doing the packing of your merch? This would be the place to include a thank you, or some little token of appreciation². Maybe if we ask nicely, Topato can add a button to the ordering process that lets you add a tip for whoever is sending out your t-shirt, poster, or book order.

Shocking Proof God’s Plan Is Coming True…

Humanity has worshipped a few zillion gods and I’m curious which one, but I have a feeling you’re talking about the god referred to by the tetragrammaton, YHWH (which Larry Gonick reliably informs me is pronounced Yahoo-Wahoo). So tell me — if this proof is so awesome, why are you trying to get me to pay you to see it instead of spreading it far and wide? I really hope that you’re right and it is proof that your god is real, because as I recall he had some nice bits of vengeance planned for the profiteers and falsely pious like you.

¹ Editor’s note: this is the general situation we live in right now, not the person who calls himself The Situation who last I heard was in federal prison for tax evasion.

² I will usually include a recipe for a cocktail that I’ve worked up, or a playlist suggestion for the next impromptu warehouse dance party.

³ Depending on how bad the world breaks further.
