The Toonhole Idiots
Like the first girl to go through puberty in middle school, Toonhole suddenly got popular! Check out all this press we’re getting. Why, if press were money… well, we still couldn’t afford rent.
First up, it’s TOONHOLE month over at FMyLife.com. Toonhole is the second comic to be featured on FML, second onto the classy Cyanide and Happiness folks. Check out the FML INTERVIEW <---- Right there. Today's comic is co-published on FML as well as Toonhole. Go check it out on FML’s site! A big thanks to ALICE from FML for the interview.
We’ve been following Brian King over at InkOutbreak.com since they launched. Brian is running a wonderful webcomics aggregator that helps tons of creators and audience members find each other. He contacted us and we feel really honored to be the first DOUBLE DIGIT INTERVIEW! So go check our interview out HERE <------ !!!
—–LBCC Interview #1
We got interviewed a couple times at Long Beach Comic Con and we just found the first of them to go online. The folks at WU Entertainment dropped by to interview Mike, Ryan, and John. Chris was out pooping. Check it out:

It’s been a crazy couple of months doing Lou the Frog content, and I’m jumping on other content creation for a bit to finish other projects. I wanted to hear what you, the loyal readers, thought. Did you guys like the series? More specifically:
– Do you guys like the serial content as our usual one-off gag cartoons?
– Would you like to see more Lou the Frog content?
– Would you buy a Lou the Frog comic book? Or other Lou the Frog merchandise?
– Did you prefer the long format comic or long format cartoon?
I’d like to start doing character content, but I want to gauge how my stuff went over with you guys. Leave me some comments and let me know! Also, feel free to email me anytime: chris (at) toonhole.com and follow me on Twitter: @toonholechris
Well, we survived Long Beach Comic Con last weekend. All the Toonholers were present, Toonhole Mike, Toonhole Ryan, Toonhole John, and myself (Toonhole Chris, not pictured). We had to wake up really early and pack our free books, flyers, and banners and get on the road. I was super tired but also really excited to get going and meet some folks.
Once we got there and set up, we started handing out small books full of our comics to try to get the word out about us. There were a bunch of people that liked ’em!
Even the children got in on the action… Until their parents came over.
We had some prints of some of our popular comics for sale that people really liked too. They came with frames and a handshake.
Oh, and you see Macho Man Randy Savage peeking around our booth? Yup, he was there supporting Toonhole. Oh wait, yeah, he does kinda look like Toonhole Ryan. Pretty sweet costume Ryan had, huh?
Overall, we had a great convention and met up with a lot of cool folks, including Chris and Shane Houghton of Reed Gunther fame, Peter from Rock, Paper, Cynic (who totally rocks! Check it!), Kevin Woody who just put out The Space Mayor of Spacetown, Denis from LAWLS, John Yuen and Matt Yuen who co-starred in Observe and Report, Angus Oblong who created the Oblongs, and Tupac Shakur, who is most certainly not dead, cuz he loves our new comics.
If you saw us at LBCC and came to the site, give us a shout in the comments section. We’d like to know what you’d like to see at other cons and what you think about the site.
