ComicFury Spring Exchange 2023!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Fri, May 5th, 2023
The most recent installment in the ComicFury Holiday Exchanges is now live, and for the first time, Weird in a Can participated!

I was assigned to draw something for "Questionable Influence", by ACottontail, and produced this crossover piece (also available in this site's Gallery):

And in return, I got this amazing piece by Aneesah, of Acid Box (which I've now placed on the Fanart page)!

2022 Halloween Piece!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Thu, October 20th, 2022
Yes! It's that time of year again!
This year's Halloween piece is now over in the Gallery!
The theme this year is Tim Burton characters, with Liz, George, and Phil as Sally, Edward, and Betelgeuse from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, and Beetlejuice, respectively:

(Yes, I know Burton didn't direct Nightmare Before Christmas, but he's still credited as the one who created the concept)

Also, the Single-Page Versions of Chapters 10 and 11 are now up!

Happy Halloween!

Five Years of Weird in a Can!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Thu, September 1st, 2022
On September 1, 2017, I launched WiaC by uploading all 21 pages of the first chapter, "Blast From the Class".

Five years, ten chapters, 11 Intermissions, two holiday specials, and 264 pages later, here we are!
Weird in a Can has allowed me to grow as a writer and artist, as well as introducing me to several really cool people, and giving me opportunities that I didn't have before.

I want to give a big shout-out to you, my readers, for joining me as I present this silly high-school sitcom in comic form. I know the update schedule has been incredibly inconsistent, with frequent hiatuses, but you stuck with me anyway. Thank you for that!

I definitely planned to end this five-year anniversary post with a big announcement...but things didn't come through in time. So, whenever it's ready, we can just have a belated celebration, I guess?

And lastly, because I wanna give you folks SOMETHING...I, uh, updated the Cast page with new artwork and rewrote the bios. That's...something, right?

Anyway, happy five years of Weird in a Can, and here's to many more!

2021 Holiday Piece!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Thu, December 23rd, 2021
As usual, I've got a new Christmas-themed piece in the gallery, or a little further down this blog post if you scroll a bit.

Yeah, I'm going back to the Dickens well again...

Not sure how well the joke works.
That said, I hope that, despite everything that's happened lately, you folks have been well, and Merry Christmas!

(By the way, if WiaC's not enough Amazing Chris Godbey for you, consider this a reminder that there's always my other comic, Draw, O Coward!)

Halloween piece and some other news!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Sun, October 24th, 2021
This year's Halloween piece is now up in the gallery!

It's got the Weirdo Trio dressed as the hosts of EC's classic horror comics: The Haunt of Fear, Tales From the Crypt, and The Vault of Horror!

In other news, once again, this trio makes a cameo in a recent page of Bananas (as usual, warning for language)!

I've also started a side comic project: a gag-a-day, infrequently-updated comic strip called "Draw, O Coward", taking inspiration from stuff like "The Far Side" and the comics of The New Yorker!

And yes, I'm aware this comic hasn't updated since June. Chapter 10 is currently in the process of being drawn, with Chapter 11* following shortly. It'll happen, I promise!

* That's the eleventh chapter of WiaC, not bankruptcy.

Chapter 9: Single-Page Version, and a cameo!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Fri, June 4th, 2021
Hey, have you been holding out on reading the most recent chapter because you're waiting for the single-page version?
No excuses now, because here it is!

Also, in the most recent page of Bananas, Percy has decorated his apartment with a poster for Weird in a Can pinball!

And, as always, follow Weird in a Can on Social Media, if you're that kinda person.


Halloween 2020 image, and new Gallery page!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Thu, October 15th, 2020
Unfortunately, progress on the next chapters of WiaC have been rather slow as of late. It's been a bit of a rough year, as I'm sure you all know.
"But what can I do for my awesome readers, who are probably getting frustrated with waiting for updates?" I thought to myself.
"How about an art gallery page on the site, to collect the non-comic Weird in a Can artwork?" I then thought.
"Nah, they can see the art on other places." I also thought.
"But now...they can see it on the site itself." I thought in rebuttal.
"It's still not an update, though", I concluded.

...I forgot where I was going with this.

Yeah, there's a Gallery! page on the site's navigation now! Containing the non-com---well, you already know.
And to celebrate this occurence, the page features this year's WiaC Halloween drawing: a Resident Evil-themed piece!

With Liz as Jill, George as Chris, and Phil as Wesker!

Happy Halloween!

Chapter 8: Single-Page Version, and new Fan Art!

by Amazing Chris Godbey on Fri, July 31st, 2020

The eighth chapter of WiaC, "Saturday Knight Fever", is now-available in Single-Page Version here!
(Are the Single-Page Versions still relevant even though ComicFury now has a "Scroll View" for all comics hosted on it? I dunno.)

Anyways, in other news, I just got some nifty Halloween-themed fanart of a vampire Phil from Jeremy7, author of LECTRO and Pine Hill Creature Feature:

It (and many more awesome pieces) are available for viewing on the Fan Art pages!
