They’re back! And it feels so good. Like you dear reader, I have missed these little guys more than words can express and it is with many tears of joy I am reunited with both them and you once again. Creating these comics is really all I want to do these days, I’m going to start with once a week but hopefully with your help we can have 5 comics a week very soon. To show your support please become a Patreon supporter of Wally & Osborne, it will be totally worth it!

I’m sure many of you have gone and seen the new Surfs Up movie, a surfers story told using penguins. I hadÂ the chance to the other day, but saw Evan Almighty instead, so I still need to go see it. Anyway, I downloaded the game demo for it the other day and it’s actually pretty fun for a surfing game, definitely worth trying out the demo if nothing else.
Also thanks to My Game Company, an independent family-friendly game developer, who’s been advertising their Dirk Dashing: Secret Agent game here on the site all week. If you get a chance, go download that game demo as well.
Now you can game it up this weekend. And after that, go get yourself some paper and crayons and make your own gaming system like Wally, you’ll be the hit of all your friends… or hit by them.

My readers know I love me some penguin news. Thanks to everyone that has commented, messaged or e-mailed me with links to the story.
Fossils of a giant prehistoric penguin have been making the headlines, a penguin with a long spear-like beak that stood about 5 feet tall. This would make it the third largest species of penguin discovered, the first being what Max was based on, which stood at nearly 6 feet tall and weighed in at 300 pounds.
Although what made this particular find newsworthy to scientists is that the remains were found in Peru, a tropical climate, way earlier in history than scientists believed that penguins had migrated to warmer weathered areas. Here’s some of the links:

A friend recently referred me to Wowio. It’s got some cool comics and graphic novels, including several all-ages ones that I’ve been checking out. It’s an e-book store, but all the books are free to download and there is no cost to sign up. In fact if you get 10 people to sign up they give you a free ipod shuffle. So if you do sign up, please enter [email protected] as referring you there and my tunes and I will soon be mobile. 😎
[EDIT: I’m sorry but it’s currently only for USA residents. I forgot to mention that. Apologies to those in other countries. Hopefully they will make it available to them too soon.]
I’m considering offering future Wally & Osborne books from this service. Be a nice way for people to get to see the extra book content that are not able to purchase the books for whatever reasons. Although, I guess it would be nice to be able to even purchase a Wally & Osborne book… yes I’m on it! 😳

Hey guys, quick little update here. There are only three comics left in this storyline, I’ve got them scripted out and just squeezing in time to draw them. I’ve been pretty busy lately with projects, actually drawing stuff, been doing lots of math workbook illustrations, I’ll see if I can get permission to share some of them for fun. Also some educational interactive Flash stuff.
I had planned on drawing up the next comic today but in the time I was suppose to use to do it I got sidetracked making a little script to display avatars next to your names in the comments, heh. What it does is grabs the “favorite” icon from the website you entered, that’s the little icon that appears next to the URL of a website up at the top of your browser. If the site doesn’t have one, the avatar will just be an empty box, and if you don’t have a site entered, then it will default to the Wally and Osborne one:
So more fun with the comments to junk them up with ridiculous posts, smileys and now avatars. Serves me right for not getting the next comics online. I’m on it…
