This week I’ll be tackling some FAQ’s for the blog:

Question 1, comes from, “My need to accentuate the positive.”

What is the average height of the Unicorn Soup staff?

Great question! Unicorn Soup is staffed exclusively with the awkwardly tall. The average staff member is 6’4 1/2 ” tall.

Unless of course we’ve gotten into our wives’ heels again.  In which case, we become far taller and far more awkward.

Question 2, comes from, “My sense of self-loathing.”

A lot of your strips deal with husbands humiliating themselves in front of their wives.  Are humiliations such a common experience in your real life?

Apparently, “My sense of self-loathing” is single. Look back after you’re married and this will seem like a silly question.

Question 3, comes from, “My need for external validation.”

Your comic is great! In two words or less, can you tell me how Jim became such an amazing artist and how you became such a hilarious writer?

Gamma rays.

Question 4, comes from, “My desire to sit at the cool kids’ table.”

Other than your own, what are some of your favorite webcomics?

Most of these are NSFW due to naughty words (Zombie Boy excluded).

Legacy Control

The Obscure Gentlemen

The Frumps


Zombie Boy

We follow and read quite a few outstanding talents, but I’m too tired to post them all.  Follow me (Jack) on Twitter for more awesome webcomics.

Our final question comes from, “Fear itself.”







This is a damn fine comic, I gotta say. This reads like a younger version of my dad is writing it, and my dad was cool so that’s top notch. It’s also very pretty! I hope you ascend the unknowable stepladder of internet fame.

Good luck with your kid! If they don’t wind up as dorky as you just try for another, it can take a few shots sometimes, but going to Comic-Con as father and son was a worthwhile experience.

Thanks for the kind words. Jack is the one with the new kid, but knowing him, he’ll raise a fine nerd on the first try. My own kids are older, and well on their way to dorkhood. Check back with us next week– I daresay we’re getting better at this comic thing.
