Cintiq 13HD and Companion users
I have a Cintiq 13HD and it is a great device, with a few quirks. My main problem with it is that I find the stand fragile and fiddly, and the device screen too low to work on comfortably.
If you also have this problem, I recommend the Kensington Smartfit Easy Riser Laptop Cooling Stand. Despite having a name four words too long, it’s robust, easily adjustable, and has useful rubber feet that prevent “slippage”. It costs less than £20.
This is one:
I hope this helps… someone?

Bad Machinery Book 2 available now!
I’m proud to announce that Bad Machinery Book 2: the Case Of The Good Boy is now available through Oni Press!
I’ve done more than thirty new pages for this edition, plus bonus material from the top drawer. We’re all proud of this book and I hope you enjoy it.
If you’re outside the US/Canada, you can get it from your local comic shop - if they don’t have it, ask them to order it for you. Any bookshop will be able to order it for you - its ISBN is 9781620101148 - it’s not in normal bookshops until March 12th.
In the UK, I recommend the following stores:
Travelling Man (Leeds, Manchester), Page 45 (Nottingham), Gosh! Comics and Orbital (London), Dave’s Comics (Brighton).
Most importantly of all, tell your friends, and hopefully these collections will keep coming.

drgonzorw asked: Hello John, I was just curious if you would consider Shelly to be (aromantic) asexual? As we've seen recently, and other times that Shelly certainly partakes in the physical act of love from time to time, but she never seems to be able to be romantically attached to anyone for very long (unless Tim is indeed "the one." or Black Metal Simon was).
I think the most “romantic” people are the ones who have the hardest time finding love at all. To me, Shelley is simply walking the length of the counter before making her selection.
