Triple "Hammer of Love" Solves All 08 Mar, 2004, 18:59 / 11 comments

Proving he can come through in a pinch, Tim Schafer has gone and updated Double Fine Action News with a single solution to the three problems of how to cope with Sam & Max 2 being cancelled, showing your love for Double Fine Action Comics, and supporting Grim Fandango in the GameSpy Grudge Title Fight:

Buy this Hickee comic.

The comic, created by Graham Annable the lead animator on Sam & Max 2 also features comics by Sam & Max 2's lead artist Derek Sakai and Joe White, another animator on the game, as well as comics by Double Fine's Nathan Stapley, Razmig Mavlian, and Scott Campbell, creator of the two-headed baby and the Double Fine Action Comics, and comics by Grim Fandango animators Dave Bogan and Vamberto Maduro. How can you pass this up? You can't.

Also, yes, we might have written about Hickee a while ago, but nobody noticed. For a funnier version of this same information, visit Double Fine Action News as soon as posible. More of this stuff at www.grickle.net.

    The official site

    I haven't looked at it all yet but in the Hickee section they have a 'daily' comic. It hasn't been changed since January 24, but if you're clever you might be able to find the old ones. ??

    Those Double Fine Action Comics are cool.

    I want a two-headed-baby tshirt. There, I said it.

    No kidding. That would be great. Someone e-mailed me last year wanting me to ask Tim about it. I did, but, as you would expect, there was no responce. To bad. I can't think of a shirt I would rather be wearing.

    I think the double fine banner is very decorative but not that cool-looking, so preferably it would just be the 2-headed baby printed on a yellow shirt. I would buy ten of those.

    Have you asked him about it? Maybe he would listen to you.

    Is it legal to make your own 2HB shirts if you don't sell them?

    What makes you think DF is more likely to listen to me? I don't think it's that important anyway, though I hope they'll consider the idea for E3 or whatever.

    Holy crap. Suddenly Tim is plugging his employee's work, running a daily comic by Scott and talking about things like Jane Jensen and Sam & Max. I'm loving it.

    (one of the issues of Hickee can be had at Amazon for people who probably can't find an issue in stores since they live in Holland and are Marek)
