“A dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do”


Looks like things are looking up for Watusi! Maybe the sour taste in his mouth will soon be a thing of the past …

Hey, don’t forget that Free Comic Book Day is coming up this Saturday! Once again Mike Sullivan (“There’s Something Happening in Crawford, KS”) and I have teamed up with a new issue of Free-for-All! to showcase our respective webcomics. I’ll be distributing copies at Lawrence’s Astrokitty Comics & More (15 E. 7th St., Lawrence, KS 66044), where I’ll be doing sketches from 2-5; Mike will be doing the same at Pop Culture Comix (9337 W. 87Th Street, Overland Park, KS, 66212). If you’re out and about, stop in and say hi, get some free comics, and maybe even a sketch. If you can’t make it, stop by www.smearysoapboxpress.com on May 4-5th for a free downloadable version …

  1. Ralphie Sam is the character find of 2013! Have fun on Free Comic Book Day!


    • I like Ralphie Sam, too; maybe we’ll see more of him next time Watusi gets groceries! I’ve been having fun with character designs for this story; kinda makes me wish there were more players in it…


  2. Could it be that whoever’s working up there is the problem? Time will tell I guess! I hope you have a great Free Comic Book Day Dale!


    • I’m looking forward to Saturday, and I’m really excited with how Free-for-All! #2 turned out– hope you have a good FCBD, too!


  3. Is it the Citrus Wolverine up there?


  4. And I was going to ask how Watusi got the money to buy his bottled water, but this shows he doesn’t.


    • Past comics have established that Watusi is pretty well set financially– he didn’t need an emerald mine, after all– but his credit is good at his local greengrocer’s, too…


  5. I think Brien’s on the right track – whomever that is on top of the water tower is more likely to be the cause of the problem than they are to be trying to solve what only Watusi even thinks is a problem. Maybe it’s that lemon-scented Mr. Clean, taking a bath in the water tower, and soaking the H2O with his lemony sweat? Have a great FCBD. I won’t make it as far south as Kansas that weekend, but there’s some fun stuff going on in Des Moines at Cup o’ Kryptonite and the other shops in town, too.


    • I wouldn’t expect to see you in this neck of the woods given all that Cup o’ Kryptonite has on tap … but you can still check out our 2013 offering when the FCBD downloads go live on Saturday!

      And it’s a good thing I’ll reveal this story’s antagonist next week … because Watusi’s clever readers may figure it out before then! I really appreciate the way you all engage with the strip; it helps keep me motivated to get the next strip done, and the next, and…


So... what'd you think?
