New Shirtby andy on 05.22.2013
Last week I promised to release some new products along with the site redesign. today I am happy to show off our newest shirt: SQUID
This latest collaboration between Explosm and the nightmarish creatures of Lovecraftian lore shows the true dangers of playing with knowledge... especially if it is in regards to the Great Old Ones! So enjoy this shirt before Sho-Gath gets them all!
Don't forget to use the discount code "New Style" to get 15% off at the store. Also Rob will be attending the Phoenix Comicon this weekend and you can find him at booth 1381!
Biggerer and Bettererby andy on 05.17.2013
Here at the Explosm Store we are excited about the upcoming show. The new show means new merchandise and also an upgrade in our presentation. With this in mind we are giving our store a face lift over the next few weeks. We are also changing our shirts to be softer and better fitting! We will re-release our shirts over the next few weeks, as well as release several new designs as well. The first shirts that we are upgrading in quality are; Axe of Kindness, Comic Strip, F-bomb, Squeeze, and Too Hardcore! Check them out!
To commemorate the upgrade we are holding a sale! If you type in the discount code NEW STYLE while checking out you will receive 15% off of your purchase! The sale is starting today and lasts until May 27th! Let the Summer of Sales begin!
I'm Back and Bringing New Posters With Meby andy on 05.01.2013
After absconding to Mexico with as much of the Explosm funds as I could, life was good. Margaritas and sleeping on the beach was awesome. Unfortunately Rob and Dave hired the combined might of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Hulk Hogan to find me. Now I am back and at the mercy of Hulkamania. In order to make up the money I already spent I am releasing a new poster! I bring you the most important medical announcement since sliced bread (that awful disease). So check out Apple a Day at our Store before an Atomic Leg Drop takes me out!
Phoenix Comicon!by Rob on 04.30.2013
We're in the midst of production on the show (which is coming along excellently) and I just wanted to make a quick mention that I'll be in Phoenix this Memorial Day weekend for Phoenix Comicon at booth 1381.
We'll have some C&H stuff available for purchase (including a con-exclusive poster) and I'll be doing sketches as well. I'll even sketch myself beating you up with a weapon of your choice.
See you there!
Going Rogue on Explosm!by Andy on 04.05.2013
As I get older, I realize that Explosm may not provide enough for me in the future. The release of the Gentleman Zombie Poster has made me consider my own mortality.
This is why I decided to take Explosm for all it is worth! For the next week I am offering a 15% off sale on Explosm merchandise, as well as reducing the price of the Depressing Comic Book to 10 bucks. Simply type in "LATER CHUMPS" into the discount code to get 15% off and assist in my escape to Mexico.
Also don't forget about the Banana Bar Crawl in Dallas on the 13th! The more people that go, the easier it will be for me to make my escape.
We're doing things in April!by Matt on 03.29.2013
As if making hours and hours of animation wasn't crazy enough (hint: it is!), we're also gonna be making appearances all over the place next month. If you'd like to come see us in person (hint: you should!) we're making it a lot more easier than usual.
In April alone, we've got three big things going on! First up, on April 3rd and 4th, I will personally be heading down to the Univeristy of North Carolina for their annual comedy festival. I'll be doing a Q&A on the 3rd and a cartoon drawing workshop on the 4th. I'll be giving out free high fives at both. Festival info here.
On April 13th we'll be having another Banana Bar Crawl! Don your fanciest banana costume and drunkenly roam the streets of Dallas with Rob, Dave, Kris, Derek, even our merch guy Andy! Facebook event page can be found here.
Last but definitely not least, from the 26th to the 28th, Dave, Kris and Shawn will make their way back to Chicago once again for this year's C2E2! Come get some sketches and grab some merch, possibly even a new con-exclusive poster! Show info here.
And hey, if you can make it down to ANY of these and you're one of our Kickstarter backers, PLEASE let us know so we can thank you in person!
We're writing like our rescue depends on it.by Derek on 03.26.2013
I've successfully locked everyone in the writing closet and I'm not letting them out until we've got our show and shorts written. Hopefully the lack of food and clean water will have them hallucinating pretty soon, otherwise I'll have to get more creative.
In the meantime while the guys are writing / attempting to call for help, check out our friends at FML who've been putting out fantastic videos about other people's suffering. Killer production combined with the sorrow of others is good for the soul!

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a jar of spiders I'm going to slip under the closet door.
We did it? We did it!!by Matt on 03.17.2013
You guys. My god. You guys.
I love you all so much. We had no idea that we'd actually hit all these goals. In one month, we've raised over $700,000 to not only create a fully-independent animated show, but hit EVERY SINGLE stretch goal we set out. Seriously, thank you.
We've got a LOT of work ahead of us, but we are so incredibly excited for it.
And if you can make it, PLEASE come to our livestream tonight, 7-10pm central (5-8 PST, 8-11 EST) so we can thank you in person and draw you a bunch of silly doodles.
And again, from the bottom of our hearts, seriously THANK YOU.
We're making 10 Episodes!by Matt on 03.15.2013
Holy crap, you guys! While we were nuzzled asleep here in Fort Collins after a long day of non-stop writing, you guys blew that 10 episode stretch goal out of the water!
Now we're only 20k away from a special DEPRESSING EPISODE. You have no idea how excited that makes us.
I wonder if we can hit that goal by tonight. Because after that, we've got one last MAJOR goal: year long shorts! It's a tough one, but might actually do it. What the hell. WE MIGHT HIT EVERY STRETCH GOAL.
Five Days of Kickstarter Madness Left!by Derek on 03.12.2013
Wow. You're all awesome.
Not only are we going to release The Cyanide and Happiness Show this fall, but you've unlocked six months of shorts, an exclusive Purple Shirted Eye Stabber Plushie, a flip book, AND the swimsuit calendar!
Do you want to see an entire Depressing episode? Than help us spread the word, there's only five days left to help us get there! Check out our Kickstarter here!
Don't forget, on the last day (March 17) we're hosting a three hours end-of-Kickstarter Draw-A-Thon from 7-10pm Central. You'll be able to watch the live webcast of the guys drawing improvised, collaborative sketches of suggestions you post in the chat window.
If you haven't seen the guys pull these sketches off at a convention, here's one of my favorites from Emerald City Comic:
