#1132 – Cimicidae

Fortunately I’ve never been tormented by actual bed bugs. But I am sometimes frightened for a split second when I pull back the covers until I remember I bought a fresh batch of black socks. Those little specks of black lint get everywhere until after a few trips through the laundry/sock black hole.

Canada is still in the lead for the book #5 preorder! I usually get a big rush from Germany and Australia near the end so they may not hold on to the lead for long.

I had a lot of fun drawing all the bits and bobs inside Biff’s head for the cover.

Not much of it was planned out. I just drew it stream of consiousness style in the pencil stage. Most of that was copied directly to the final inks but there were a few spots that I went off script and added new stuff that felt better balanced. Get your copy of the bits and bobs #5 in the store today!

    For a SECOND I thought it was blood

    Facebook button! I thank you *bows*

    You don’t really get bedbugs over here – you have to be very unlucky. Usually it’s just ticks and stuff like that (but you have to be out bush-walking).

    I agree – Awesome pajamas. I need some new ones, come to think of it. Thanks for reminding me.

    Bedbugs have become a huge problem nationwide.

    But Biff apparently found the mother lode.

    I solved my faux bedbug problem by not wearing socks to bed.

    Biff’s a robot? And all this time I just thought he was an alien.

  7. YukiYukimura says:

    I get the feeling that Biff will be a victim of pyjama theft in the near future…
    …why are you looking at me like that?!

    @JOHN – you didn’t know? I would recognise one anywhere…
    …because I’m totally NOT a robot run by my real self from a secret bunker in a secret location.
    I’m just… normal…
    …sort of?

    I live in Colorado. We’re supposed to be one of the states with the worst bedbug problems. That’s why I sleep on the couch.

    @ John Small Berries: Say hi to Dr. Lizardo for me.

  10. Gwid says:

    @ Cari – Right, not because your wife made you.

  11. Cyndaquazy says:

    I luv Biff’s jammies

    So, clearly not dream week.
    Maybe the theme is something else to do with sleeping?
    Or, it could be that there’s NO theme this week… 🙂

    Darn bedbugs! Well, at least they weren’t helicopters… (see Biff #202)

    @ Yuki Yukimura – Whoa… You mean (not) like from Surrogates? Cool!

    Your sock experience reminds me of one of my own. New blue bathrobe for college. Never washed and worn after a shower. Oh my stars and garters, I’ve become Hank McCoy.

  15. DaemonThanatos says:

    yeah, no kidding. I woke up one night to find THREE of the little monsters feasting on me…and the funny part is that when I tried to kill them, two got away. The next day, both of them were dead. Apparently, my blood is toxic to bed bugs.

  16. Marscaleb says:

    I’ve had bed bugs. Those things are terrible.
    I was paranoid for years, always checking my bed-sheets for little bloodstains.

    I hail from the future where they have made RAID specifically for bed bugs!
