The SAYER Prequel Comic; the best idea we’ve ever had.
On June 23rd, we rolled out our next pair of milestones. In tandem these two milestones will enable us to fund a dream project: a SAYER prequel digital comic book.
While we’re not ready to reveal any information about the storyline of the comic, we’re hugely excited to announce who we’ll be working with in order to make it a reality. Jim Lawson is an artist and writer whose work I grew up reading. Over his years at Mirage working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles he developed an outstanding portfolio of work, and I can’t wait to see his take on the SAYER universe. If we reach our first milestone of $200 per month, we will be able to commission the concept art to find out together!
Working alongside Jim to turn concept to a finished inked page is the incredible Colin Panetta. Typhon is a dark world, both literally and metaphorically, and I’m very excited to see how Colin manages the balance of light and dark with his inking. I’ve been in love with his work since Jonah first introduced this idea to me.
Jim Lawson and I are drawing a comic for the podcast SAYER. The comic is a milestone for the successful Patreon campaign supporting the podcast. Two designs for characters that will appear in the comic have already been posted. Those designs and the comic itself will be available to backers of the Patreon only, so check out and support SAYER on Patreon if you want to see them.
SAYER is a narrative science-fiction podcast with healthy doses of horror and comedy mixed in. It’s an ideal atmosphere for Jim and I to rock out in, and I’m very excited to unleash some of the techniques I’ve been developing for this story.
We are so excited about this project. It’s going to be awesome.

This Dog Is Smarter Than The Average 2-Year-Old Human
Pilley has been diligently teaching Chaser like a child for the past 9 years. And her lessons have clearly paid off, because now Chaser is known as the smartest dog in the world.
“My best metaphor is that she is a two-year-old toddler. She has the capabilities of a two-year-old,” said Pilley on 60 minutes with Anderson Cooper.
While an average 2-year-old knows and understands about 300 words, Chaser knows over a 1000 words and is still learning.
She is also able to correctly identify over 95% of her 1000+ toys and differentiate between certain basic nouns and verbs.
Chaser is clearly the apple of Pilley’s eye, because not only has he spent a significant amount of time teaching her, she’s also the subject of a paper Pilley and his colleague Alliston Reid, published in a peer reviewed scientific journal titled — Border collie comprehends over 1,000 object names as verbal referents.
With her book, “Chaser: Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words,” hitting the top of Amazon’s Movers and Shakers list, she’s well on her way to being known as the Einstein of the dog world.

That’s cool, but my 18 month old can already talk. Can your dog talk? Didn’t think so old man.
