TopatoCo Missives/Prophecies - It Comes From Internet

2014 Holiday Ordering Deadlines

At TopatoCo, we are not a billion-dollar corporation with hundreds of thousands of underpaid workers on the precipice of uprising. We’re just a few reasonably happy people that get paid okay and try real hard! We have no drones, no box-folding robots, no conveyor belts and no “corporate strategy.” That’s why we have… holiday ordering deadlines!

Please note that the target arrival date for all these deadlines is December 24 or sooner. For dates that come before December 24 , read this and please give us a couple extra days just in case because things start gettin’ pretty crazy around here right about now. We run a robot-free workplace and people are imprefect.

Skybridge: The Battle in Seattle

At some point this weekend (March 28-30) you may find yourself in a strange costume on the Skybridge of the Washington State Convention Center. To your left is TopatoCo (The Good Guys). To your right is BOOM! Studios. The tension is so thick it cannot be cut. Scientists will be studying how thick the tension is for practical uses in building aircraft frames.


We are outgunned and outnumbered but we believe we might win. Maybe. We have street smarts and gumption and all that. We have the combined power of:

Emily Horne & Joey Comeau (A Softer World): They have badass tattoos.

Aaron Diaz (Dresden Codak): Aaron once beat up a gang.

Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson (Tiny Kitten Teeth): Frank is from New Zealand.

Tyson Hesse (Boxer Hockey/Diesel): Tyson was born without the part of his brain that feels fear.

Jeph Jacques (Questionable Content): Jeph is 11 feet tall.

Kate Leth (Kate Leth): Kate also had badass tattoos.

Sam Logan (Sam and Fuzzy): Sam is a demolitions expert.

David Malki ! (Wondermark/Machine of Death): David is the deadliest man in the world with parody rap lyrics.

Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics/All Kinds of Stuff): Ryan is TWELVE feet tall.

Dante Shepherd (Surviving the World): Dante has super intelligence and hearing.

Chris Yates (Chris Yates Studios): Chris uses power tools like, all the time.

We will have STUFF. We will have THINGS. We will have surprises. We will have the WILL TO SURVIVE. But most importantly, we will have friendship. And street smarts.

Introducing Michael Kupperman by KC Green

We welcome at TopatoCo with open arms MICHAEL KUPPERMAN! An  influential cartoonist for myself starting all the way back to his days with Snake ‘N’ Bacon’s Cartoon Cabaret to his current Tales Designed to Thrizzle series and all the stuff in between and all the stuff in the future he has yet to create. Michael brings in some great prints and a new shirt that will have you laughing along with Pagus!! Ha ha ha ha! More eggs for Pagus! Go get his books or follow him on tumblr or twitter  He has a website too, but nobody looks at websites anymore, it’s all about getting social and rubbing elbows with Tom from Myspace or Tim from Twitter or Tum from Facebook!

Look At This Cool Slideshow

Now that ComicCon has ended and we have spent the week following sitting in  quiet rooms, empty save for one old, wooden chair, completely alone and in silence, facing straight forward with our feet on the floor and our hands on our knees, blinking only occasionally and taking great care to keep our heart-rates at 40bpm or lower, we figured it was time to make a cool slideshow featuring all the new merchandise we haven’t made a big ol stink about yet!

New shirts from Kris Straub, KC Green, Ryan North, Rosemary Mosco, and ME, new paperbacks from David Malki ! and John Allison!
