This story features the evil clone of Sam that was created in the very first story, “Accidents Happen”. It takes place at the same time as the events in “Lair of the Insectaurs”…

It’s been at least two years since we’ve seen a Naughty Bits collection, but our long national nightmare has come to an end! The newest collection of stuff you wouldn’t want your mother to catch you reading is now out—Alternate Centaurs: Attack of the Naughty Bits!!
This collection contains, in addition to some previously released material, an all-new, never-before-released story: “Magic Man”. Previously seen stories include “Accidental Menfolk”, “Curse of Futa Springs” and “Horse Sense”.
There’s also a selection of pieces from the late Patreon version of NSFW Friday and the obligatory Sketchbook Raid! And let’s not forget the gorgeous cover art done by Ian Samson!
The book is available in print and PDF versions from Lulu.com. The print edition [Click here to order] is $45, and is FULL COLOR and 130 pages. The digital PDF edition [Click here to order] is sized for your tablet and is $25.
Remember, the purchase of these books helps to keep Accidental Centaurs on the air. I realize that may seem a little—what’s the word here? “Hypocritical”… that’s it!—since there hasn’t been an update for several months, but… it’s coming… REALLY!
Seriously, if you’re into this sort of thing (and you know who you are!), please check out “Attack of the Naughty Bits” now, available online from Lulu.com!
In honor of the return of Rick and Morty on Adult Swim, (and for me to get excited about a show on what’s normally a tepid morass of Seth McFarlane off-network reruns and hideous Seth McFarlane wannabes, it could only be Rick and Morty or The Venture Brothers…) here’s a little goodie I threw together…
Hey, thanks for your patience as things get retooled here at Stately Lotshaw Manor. I still have big plans for Alex, Sam and Lenny, and I should be making some announcements soon… like a new story and a timeline for Year Two!
Not only does it have corrected pages (which have not been posted online), this download edition features pages from the manual for the PP-1001 Portable Probability Field Analyzer and Projector! It’s also in full color, which the webcomic version is not…
I need to come up with some content to put up here as I get the next story ready. The plan is for a really neat, special story, and I don’t want to rush it.
However, since I don’t want to leave you in the lurch, I’d like to ask you for questions you’d like answered about the strip, the characters, me, my workflow (or lack thereof). Anything you’d like to know, just post it in the comments. Ask questions of me or the characters. I’ll pull questions that I can make into entertaining (and informative answers) and put them up on the site.
It’s like “Viewer Mail”, but with fewer snarky skits and hokey jokes.
It’s always sad when cartooning loses one of it’s own. It’s even sadder when the voice that is stilled is one of cartooning’s Greats (the folks who earned that capital letter). Sadder still is when you know that voice personally and called him a friend.
Roy Doty passed away. He was what I call a “That Guy” illustrator. People may not know the name, but when you show an example of the work, they’ll say, “Oh! THAT guy!”. We don’t have “that guy” illustrators any more. They’re a victim of the time and changes in media. That’s a real shame.
I got to meet Roy for the first time when he was the Guest of Honor at the Southeast NCS Chapter meeting in Memphis. I sat across from him as we ate some truly legendary dry rub ribs at Rendezvous, listening to some truly legendary stories about the glory days of cartooning. He nicknamed me “Slim” and drew the image I’ve posted with this message. At the Reubens in Boston, after he had been honored by the NCS with the Gold Key, he and I sat in the ballroom for hours, talking. Just talking.
Later, I worked with him on a proposed animated version of Wordless Workshop. In Pittsburgh, I showed him a sample of animation. He paid me the highest compliment of my career. “You get it,” he said. “People have been trying to animate my work for 60 years. You understand it. Simplicity!”
There was nothing simple about Roy’s work. Simplicity and cleanliness should never be confused for non-complexity. Just as Ernie Bushmiller honed his work to a fine edge, Roy wielded his pen like a surgeon does a scalpel. Only what is absolutely necessary is on the page. Remove any one thing, and it’s just lines. The whole is always more than sum of the parts.
I hope one day to be a crusty curmudgeon with a twinkle in my eye, just like Roy. He griped, he complained, he drove many NCS Presidents to drink (well, that’s not hard to do… we’re talking about the NCS…), but he always had his tongue firmly in his cheek and the best of intentions. We’re going to miss Roy.
You know… “That guy…”
For those of you who like Plain Brown Wrapper, I wanted you to know that I’ve put a bunch of NSFW Friday originals up for sale over on Etsy. These pieces are priced starting at $25, and the won’t be the last. I’m also going to do some clean pieces that will be available over there as well.
Remember, these sales help support Accidental Centaurs by supporting me. Please consider buying some of the swag I have on the site, such as Accidental Centaurs all-ages books and comics, Plain Brown Wrapper digital downloads, or my retrocomputing merch! It’s all going to a good cause: keeping me from having to get a real job so I can keep drawing centaurs for you!
UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that Buy Adult link led to a page full of bad links. This has been corrected by having the links involved take you the pbw.accidentalcentaurs.com page, which is what I meant for the links to do in the first place.
For the last several months, I have been honored to be working with the great Guy Gilchrist, who writes and draws the classic strip Nancy®. The first product of this work debuts today on GoComics: Random Acts of Nancy!
In this feature, we’ll be taking classic Ernie Bushmiller panels from Nancy that were offbeat and wacky to begin with, and then pull them out-of-context so they become even more bizarre and surreal. It’s a Dada experience that would make Jean Arp’s head explode, and it starts today at the Random Acts of Nancy page on GoComics.com.
UPDATE: The links now take you directly to the Random Acts page on GoComics!
