Answer for question 4294.

What type of natural disasters frighten you the most? Have you personally experienced a disaster of that type?
I have an outsized fear of tidal waves. There are a lot of things out there that can kill you, many of which are far more common in my area (i.e. tornadoes), but there's nothing like looking up in the distance and seeing a towering wall of water coming your way from which there is no escape.

Answer for question 4158.

There's a lot of nostalgia around old franchises coming back right now. Movies, TV shows, even action figures! What's something from your childhood that you wish would come back? Why?

(This question will remain in place for a few days while Writer's Block is re-launched -- we'll have new questions each weekday starting on Monday!)
Is it too obvious to say Star Trek?

Sure, Trek never really went away per se, but it's definitely due for a comeback. On one hand I was disappointed that they didn't try to embrace the success of the 2009 movie and piggyback a new TV series onto that, but the prospects of it coming out and being really good are better now than ever before.

I would love to see what a Trek show would be like after Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead have shown how much you can really do with TV.

Buzzed Bear and Octeapus

We have two Misters Coffee, because coffeemakers are the best way to make iced tea but you don't want that tea to taste like coffee. Since they look basically the same, we put little stickers on them to differentiate which was which. The coffee maker has a bear and the tea maker has an octopus. As a warmup drawing, I decided to make them into cartoon characters.


I can easily see these two trading barbs in a wacky office comedy.
