Why isn’t the comic still called Scary Go Round?
I get asked this all the time. Why isn’t Giant Days called Scary Go Round? Why isn’t Bad Machinery called Scary Go Round? It’s on the same URL. There are characters in common.
The answer is really easy. It’s the same reason that a bank robber changes his name when he runs away to Brazil. So people won’t keep asking him questions about what he did back when he robbed banks. It’s a line in the sand. Also, I robbed a load of banks.
It’s still on the same URL because I don’t believe you should ever give people a jumping-off point. Disappearing from their bookmarks is a pretty easy way to lose a load of lazy dudes.

I’ve had a number of messages from people struggling to get the Bad Machinery book outside the USA, particularly in the UK and Australia. Here’s what to do:

If you want a personalised book, I will be selling adhesive personalised bookplates from the beginning of May.
