How to Make and Fulfill a Contract

Okay, change of plan. Until today there were three ways to get the no-purchase-necessary gift zip file of my hero comics. You could subscribe to the comic, and you’d get a text link along with every comic this month. You could donate, and you’d be given the opportunity to download the file automatically. You could e-mail me, and I’d send you the download link via e-mail.

More than a few of those who chose to e-mail me, for whatever reason, didn’t get the return e-mail with the link. I think a lot of it has to do with spam filters, but that’s just one possibility. Many of those people sent a second e-mail wanting to know where their link was. I responded, again, via e-mail. Unsurprisingly, not all of my responses seem to have gotten through. Also, many who chose to donate did not get the automatic download prompt. Many of these people e-mailed me. I responded. Not all of the responses have gotten through.

I apologize. This was supposed to be a thank you gift for my readers, not a frustrating hassle for my readers. To just fix the problem once and for all I’m just going to post the download link with the comic for the rest of the month.  Here it is.

And as always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links  (USUKCanada).

"Can't it be both?" is my usual response to most ___ or ___ questions.

Fourth panel gave me a good laugh. Poor mullet boss with his over exerted self confidence...

October 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

Well, that's very generous of you. Thanks.

I need a t-shirt that says, "Everything I do, I do handsomely"

October 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterH. Torbinsen

Thank you. I think I've tried e-mailing you about 4 times, so this was a very nice fix.

Also, great comic.

October 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

That is both classy and awesome of you. Thank you very much!

Also, comic good.

Thanks for the link Scott. I did email you without receiving a reply, but I didn't want to hassle you. I'm pretty sure I learnt about not hassling for an extra reward in a BI at some point in time...

I agree with the other "classy" statements, since it's been as frustrating for you as them. I have 3 kids (and a wife), so I'll do all of my Christmas shopping through your Amazon affiliate.
Gotta keep up with the Meyers.

I giggled till my ears plugged. Awesome comic today.

On an unrelated note, having just downloaded the comics (thanks, btw) Radioactive junk Scott kinda looks like Heisenberg.

In your store the 2012 calendar is no longer available. It is the copyright issue all over again!

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenternew link

my response to forked questions is usually "yes," but i think I'm going to add "can't it be both?" to my repertoire.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterbashir

Love panel 1 - Scott's surly expression of resignation, sullen resentment and mistrust mixed with an inkling if hope (soon to be dashed . . .)

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaddy

I second H. Torbinsen's suggestion.

Mullet Boss: his power derives from his mullet, his Members Only jacket, and his bottle of Drakkar Noir.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

I can't seem to get the file to unzip on my mac. Any good programs out there?

Great comic btw.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Mullet boss could try his hand at selling Dos Equis beer. "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I do it handsomely."

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMikey


There's lots of good programs out there, but very few good programs will run on a mac.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHari

I just did the download and the size was 17.7 meg. I think some of the email clients still don't allow attachments over 10 meg.

H. Torbinsen may be on to something - "Everything I do, I do handsomely" definitely belongs in the BI store, just a question of whether you put mullet boss on it or not.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHari

You, sir, are awesome. I am going to make a donation right now just to thank you for being cool enough to post the link for all....Done!

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew

4th panel is solid gold.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLuke314pi

Thank you very much!

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRob

I usually shorten "can't it be both?" to just "Both".

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLee

Just once, I'd like to actually see this dreaded RJ-17 form, just to see what all the whining is about. And also, thanks for the artwork downloadable linkage!

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

This made me go to Mirriam Webster's to read all 5 definitions of handsome. You've already improved my daily average IQ starting point. I assume work will lower it for me today.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHotHam

@James Yeamans : I'd show it to you, but I dropped it.

Very gracious of you, Scott. And excellent comic, as usual.

October 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCzernobog

You rock! Superbly done dry sense of humor. I love it!

October 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRobby

I suspect the RJ-17 and the 27B-6 hang out in the same drinking spots.

October 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMike Finke

Just so long as he puts the new cover page on his TPS report.

October 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterResuna

Would your mom hate mullet boss or become enamored with him?

October 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Dude, thank you for the download.

Everything you do, you are doing handsomely.
