Hey bros and sistahs. Guess what Saturday, October 2nd is? Why, it’s 24-Hour Comics Day! And Ben and Steve of PHIL COMICS will be participating at Chicago’s own Comic Vault from 11am on Saturday to 11am on Sunday. How cool does that sound?
I know what you’re thinking, and no, we won’t be making a PHIL comic book (not yet at least). We’ll be doing a “pilot” issue of a character we’ve had in our wheelhouse since 2004. MATT SHEASBY: RETAIL DETECTIVE.
See you on 24 Hour Comics Day!

“hey where have updates been??”
Ben (of Ben and Steve) has been super-busy writing and performing in a monthly live stage show called “The Telethon,” which happens every second Saturday of the month at the Playground Theater in Chicago (3209 Halsted). Wouldn’t you know it, Steve (of Ben and Steve) also performs in that show! Sound interesting? Check out this youtube promo for the August show!
Steve (of Ben and Steve) has been super-busy starting a brand new webcomic–a spin-off of PHIL if you can imagine that! It’s called Phil’s Adventures, and it’s an globe-trotting comic strip that the whole family can enjoy. It actually made its first apperance in a March 2008 update on HaveYourPhil.com and has occassionally appeared on this site since. It updates 24 times a month, and if you have a soft spot for Calvin and Hobbes, Tintin, or Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, chances are you’ll like it.
PHIL will be updated today (Thursday), tomorrow, and Saturday, and return to regularly scheduled updates next week.

This is why we can’t have nice things. I update to the newest versions of everything and it all falls apart again. Well, the comic works, and that’s all that matters for now, and I’ll just bother anyone and everyone I know who knows how to make internet pretty.
We just switched over to a new server. Right now there aren’t too many changes from the old site (in fact, a few things are missing, including all of the comics from 2007) but this will be fixed and there should be a number of good changes to come. But hey, categories work again! That’s fun!
