This is the full listing of every news bulletin in Chain Bear history

THIS IS THE NEWS



05th February 2012

A Book!
So, Chain Bear's been a bit slow lately for various reasons. One of the reasons is, I've been writing a book of fairy tales and now you can buy it, wooo! It's available in paperback and in kindle form. Other ebooks will be available in a couple of months' time. Yay!
Thank you for your patience.

Illustration
I have an Illustration Site up now. If you'd like some illustration done for you, let me now. Ka-pow!

Site Update
The old site was getting a bit tatty around the edges so we updated it! And now it's... well it's deliberately tatty around the edges this time. The main trunk is a bit thicker now and everything has a running theme. We still have to update the comment buttons, but they are dynamic and I can't do that by myself so they'll take a bit longer. Do check out the stickers at the bottom of the page - those are some comics I recommend!

Other work by Chain Bear
Hi Guys,Chain Bear, the comic is a little more relaxed these days. We're trying new things and working hard at expanding out careers to the comic is just one of a few things we're focussed on at the moment. Why not check us out around the internets?:

Meanwhile, we're both working on personal projects that we'll hopefully be able to reveal in due course. If you were wondering why Chain Bear is a little different, it's due to our exploration of different creative avenues!

Guest Comic at Drawing Board!
Hey everyone! I've only gone and done a guest comic over at Drawing Board! Go check it out. Then go read through the archives! And if you're gonna say, 'hey, well if he's got time to do a guest comic, then he's got time to do more chainbears' then... well... shh!

To tell you the Drewth
To save the reputation of poor Drew, I shall reveal that Drew's contribution to Chain Bear may have been scrawled out on a touchscreen phone in the middle of the night in bed before we went to Iceland. It may also be true that Drew didn't realise he was a guest cartoonist until his third strip was published. But I can't substantiate these rumours.

Oh goodness, you guys! I'm sorry we've been so lax throughout December. To be fair we were both super busy and super ill. Do you forgive us?

Lack of Updates
Apologies for lack of updates recently. It's been busy times lately in Chain Bear Towers. Comics will come, but unscheduled and all over the place. The twitter feed stays active in the mean time, though. And we're working on something BIG. Well... medium. Ish,

Intenet Problems
Allo! We've got some weird internet problems at home meaning there's no comic going up at the moment. If you wish to pass the time, use the comments thread to imagine what comic would have gone up. It would probably have been something to do with bananas.

The Forever Line
I haven't read the fabulous Cowbirds in Love for a month because I knew Sanjay was doing a serial for the month and I wanted to read it in one sitting. Having read it, I absolutely insist you read his 28-part story immediately. It's called The Forever Line.

Jeff Goldblum: UPDATE!

We only went and did it! :)
Jeff Goldblum totally signed a photo of our cats, Jeff and Goldblum! He said it was "sweet".
His play was great too - make us giggle a-plenty, go and check it out at the Vaudeville (plug plug plug).
Thanks, Jeff Goldblum

Irregularities
Hello! Chain Bear might deviate a little bit from the rigid Mon-Wed-Fri update pattern. The eagle-eyed among you might have noticed this starting already. (cough). It'll all be totally worth it though.

To keep up with the updates, I'd recommend you follow our RSS feed that should update when we put up a new comic.

Comic Delay
Wednesday's comic will appear on Thursday

UPDATE: okay, attempting to update my iPod through crappy iTunes (god damn you Jobs) turned my computer into an abacus which meant I couldnt upload the comic before I had to leave for work. But it exists. Oh, how it exists. This evening it will be up.

A Podcast!
Surprise(ish)! We've teamed up with Tro McFelliweg to bring you a brand new, slightly naff podcast. We've been recording for over a month now, getting used to the idea and have published 4 episodes for your perusal. They're a bit raw and ropey but we're getting better with every week.

So it's called The Proof is in the Popcorn (which is incredibly hard to get your tongue around when nervous) and we watch movies, pull out some choice quotes and discuss what the bloody hell they were talking about. The first three are overly relationshippy/sexual but after that we've been watching other things. Email / Temporary Website / iTunes.

Jeff Goldblum

This message goes out to Jeff Goldblum. Jeff, if you're a Chain Bear fan I want you to sign a photo of our cats, Jeff and Goldblum. In return they will sign a photo of you, if you wish. By which I mean they will fall asleep on it, which is their highest form of praise. We're gonna come to Kevin's theatre to watch you do your acting and we'll swing by for the autograph afterwards okay? Is that cool, Jeff?
Thanks,

Stuart

Everyone Draw Mohammad - the reaction
So it seems some proponents of Islam have decided the best response to EDM is Everybody Draw the Holocaust, which is weird because the holocaust isn't taboo at all. It's terrible, but it's not off limits and no one's gonna kill you for depicting it - in fact, people go out of their way to depict it in the hope of winning Oscars. Probing a little further, it seems that this is a Holocaust Denial group which is a ridiculous position but is a concept which still isn't taboo as there are holocaust deniers loud and proud everywhere. The standard response to Holocaust Denial is to call them a bunch of crazy idiots, because of evidence x, y and z - not to go physically terrorising the deniers. Hilariously they've declared, "you draw Lies about Muhammad and we draw Truth about you" (the you being Jewish people, I guess?)
Wackos.
Stuart

Update: Apparently in some countries you aren't allowed to express denial/skepticism about the holocaust. I would argue this is as stupid as banning drawings of Mohammad.

Nudity Week
At the implicit/explicit request of Abhinav and Bhazor, the week commencing 17th of May will be a nudity week, with no clouds covering penises or nuddin'. So - if you're one to look at Chain Bear on full screen in the middle of a meeting at work, you've been warned.

A late Charge by the Chain Bear Party
Well we've just entered to race for UK Election stuff. Unfortunately because we're so late (Lauren couldn't find her purse as we were leaving) our name isn't on any of the ballots so all you have to do is add and extra box and write "Chain Bear" and put a cross next to it. Don't worry, we've sorted it all out with the constituencies, it's all cool.
What are our policies?

  • Reduction in overall bear-baiting per capita
  • Less volcanoes
  • More boobs (but less earthquakes)
  • Over 60 new flavours
  • Lost will never end

Remember - a vote for Chain Bear is a vote for us.

April 1st
I forgot to mention that the man who makes you healthier from Philidelphia - Sanjay Kuuullllkarniii - featured us on his site here. Oh we'll be cooking up a revenge for Bastille Day, Sanjay - don't you worry!
Also, Lauren says she's shocked at how accurate your depiction of us is; it's almost like you sneak into our house and watch us. Almost like.

Still no internet, Blogs updated
Okay so we're still waiting for internet at home. We'll try and get as many half-decent (ha!) strips onto the site as we can. it's been a pretty lean month but hopefully the dedicated still come back to see if we've got our act together yet.
I've put a couple of new blog posts up recently. I hope you like them.

A couple of things
Firstly, we're moving house at the moment so comics will be thin for another week. We'll try our best!
Secondly, I can't seem to log into my ftp at the moment so the header is stuck on female Chain Bear! Argh!

We found Sanjay's Notebook
Sanjay lost his ideas notebook and we found it and sent the ideas to Alex Culang and Justin Boyd so we could publicly reveal his ideas and hold him to ransom. Unfortunately he decided to all his ideas at once in a kind of shoot the hostage tactic. Well played, Sanjay.

Opportunity to Act on Libel Reform
You may or may not be aware that the UK has some of the worst libel laws in the World, with the burden of proof on the 'libellor' than the subject of their critique. It also has extremely high legal costs and if you can show that a handful of people in the UK have read the questioned critique (easy in this www world), the case can be held here. Together this means that journalists and scientists (to name a couple of examples) are often stifled in publishing valuable critique of high-profile activities for fear that they will be sued at their own considerable expense.
There is now a strong movement to get these laws sorted out , leanr more and to sign the petition, click here to help the interests of free criticism.

Injured Cat Warning
Our kitten,
Goldblum, broke his foot and needs constant attention cos doesn't seem to realise he can't charge around like normal. Even though this means we're stuck in the flat every day this might affect getting comics out 3 times a week on time. But we'll try!

Be Cool, New Jersey!
New Jersey is struggling to pass a bill allowing gay marriage. Unless you want to be branded not cool by Chain Bear, I suggest you sort it out, New Jersey. If you need a hand, this reasoned debate should help.
Thanks,

Not Cool, New York
Well done, New York - I'm sure Lauren's got another comic waiting just for you to start ranting about. Top tip, New York - you already pissed Lauren off on our visit by being too big - don't unleash the rage again!
I like how the leading picture has some nice interracial kissing though. New York's not all bad, rest of the world.
Stuart

(PS. Abhinav - we should get some commentability on the news. I'll speak to you tonight, love and kisses)

Is it funny?
I've added a voting button for Is It Funny Today which allows public voting on a number of webcomics. I'm not sure how it works if it's not meant to be funny, but it seems to be quite a fun place so give it a go; you can vote on each issue of Chain Bear separately.

Oooh, a letter!
We get emails here at Chain Bear, but they're normally just friendly 'just dropping by to say hi' type emails. If emails were physical meetings, the ones we get would be stopping by for a cup of tea type emails. Anyway, we got our first rebuttal email this weekend so I felt it was worth publishing and replying to in an open forum, so I created a letters part of the site and you'll find our brand new email there!
BTW, I'm very surprised that we didn't get anything about this Chain Bear as it seems to be the most provocative, looking at the comments. Shrug!

On Sunday 19th July I will be running in the Cancer Research Race for Life. Please be awesome fellows and sponsor me in this endeavour. All transactions are entirely secure, and any amount will be much appreciated. You can SPONSOR ME HERE. Stuart won't run, because it's just for the females, but the main reason is because he's as lazy and fat as Chain Bear himself. Proud? You bet he is!
Lauren

The race is THIS SUNDAY, everyone. Head on down to Hyde Park if you want to see Lauren running. If you want to recognise her, she'll be the one with the number on her chest. I can't remember what the number is though.

Birthdays and Lebonese
There isn't much new news to report, but I realised that the news needed updating as it was still talking about Easter.
Firstly, we can't remember what day Chain Bear started exactly, but it was around this time so happy birthday Chain Bear! (e-cards welcome :))
Secondly, it's Lauren's birthday on Thursday and she will be 487 years old. (E-cards mandatory).
Thirdly, we went to a Lebonese restaurant on Saturday and it was awesome. Except for the ketchup, which was not awesome.
Stuart

486 was a great year, you guys.
Lauren

The restaurant was called Souk Medina near Seven Dials in London. Mention Chain Bear for a complimentary blank stare!

Not a Fool?
On April 1st you got not so much an April Fool as two comics for the price of one. Who's the fool now, eh? Also, it's based on a true story.

Update: Buttersafe have responded, and Lauren and I are currently manning the rigging and boarding up the windows and all those other things one needs to do to prepare for an invasion.

Further Update: We can't find the rigging.

New Recommendations
Our little recommendation buttons at the bottom of the page have had a little tweak to include two webcomics we think you should check out! Firstly, the delightfully witty Cowbirds in Love, which kind of makes me think of buttersafe mixed with xkcd. Go there now. Secondly, the super-educational Oh My Ology which seems to be a fusion of webcomic and textbook. Go there, also.

I hope you're enjoying 2009!

International Polar Day
Today is International Polar Year's International Polar Day for Polar People! And as we are led by a Commander in Chief of Polar descent, Mr Chain Bear, himself, we though we'd let you know about it.

More Ghostbusters?
Did you know they're making a new Ghostbusters film? I didn't. Abhinav, our electronic engineer in residence, did. Apparently.

Competition 104 - Final
Finally, we sorted out the giant vacuum that is comic 104. This one seemed the most appropriate - thanks MaskMan! A handful of the rest can be found in our DVD Extras

Competition 104 - Update
We've had some interesting entries to fill the slot at comic number 104. I feel a bit like the guy in charge of The Fourth Plinth. It's going to be a busy week but we hope to fill it soon. For those who I didn't get back to, thanks for supplying us with something!

Competition 104!!
Ladies, Gentleman and Bear - we have a kind of competition thing! There's no real prize except honour, I guess - but here are the details:
Upon perusing the archives recently, we have found, bizarrely, that there is no comic number 104! Whatever could have caused this, we wondered, and how to remedy it? Then we thought - let's give the space up to someone else!
So - guys, gals and bears - we want you to send us anything you like to fit in that comic spot, where it will stand for all time. Surprise, Amuse, Shock - whatever you want. We'll put the best one up, and keep some of our favourites in the DVD Extras. Send it over by August 5th!
Stuart and Lauren

Interview
I forgot to mention - Chain Bear was interviewed by The Webcomic Asylum recently. We think it went well, though for some reason, parts of the interview have turned blue!

You may have noticed you can now comment on each individual comic. This is a communication revolution, my comicees!

Opinion!
We've thrown in a little section to highlight some of the blurbs of opinion thrown about the cybernet hyperspace interpages in our fledgling year. If you happen to see anything, good or bad, worth mentioning let us know!

Salmon-Man

I should point out that Salmon-Man is not our creation, but a concept piece of Zeph Gordy. You can find out more about Salmon-Man at his depository under 'Shorts'.

Well we're back from Turkey! It was very nice, thank you - I got a 'Tag Heuer' watch for 70 lira and Lauren got an Official McLaren top, which is pretty exciting! Thanks to all our guest artist, they were awesome! Normal service is resumed!

Also, I'm switching from biro to pencil for a while. Wish me luck!

Sorry for the lack of a a strip on Friday - there was some strange man asleep in the Chain Bear Command Centre (living room) who later turned out to be a friend of my housemate. Whoops.

My Computer has been hit by some kind of crappy virus which means my computer is slowly churning to a halt which means that I might miss an update a couple of times. Let's hope not though.

Due to circumstances beyond our control - and by 'beyond our control' I mean that we have totally decided ourselves - Stuart and I are severing ties with the 'Big City Moose' strip. I know, I know, 'severing' is such a harsh word to use in circumstances such as these, but, nonetheless, this is our decision. Let us not think of this departure with sadness in our hearts, but instead try to see it as a friendly push out the window, a push that might lead to bigger and better things for Chain Bear comics

Hello everyone! Lauren and I will be taking over the running of the site from Mr Chain Bear: we are the artists after all! We're going to be refining everything a little bit and making the Chain bear experience a little better, hopefully. We're keeping the variation and stuff, but we're going to be tightening up the 'keep' filter. We've already thrown out a picture of a baby! But maybe you'll see the second rate stuff in the DVD Extras. Some people do like seeing the Directors Cut, after all. Anyway, stick with us and we'll stick with you!
