Too good too bad

The two ninja mafia shirts will (finally) go on sale on Monday. I'll probably show some preview images of the final designs later this week.

And now, for no particular reason, here are my ten favourite Beatles songs.

10. Day in the Life

9. Revolution (Single)

8. Lady Madonna

7. My Life

6. Taxman

5. If I Fell

4. Golden Slumbers

3. Paperback Writer

2. I Saw Her Standing There

1. For No One

I'm sure you are a better person for knowing that.

Ball and biscuit

With regards to the prototype Ninja Mafia shirt design I posted on Wednesday: approximately half of you thought the van was awesome, while half of you thought the van was stupid.

I'd hate to leave anyone disappointed, so obviously the only solution is to have two different shirts -- one based off of the prototype, and a new van-free one featuring a lineup of four or five mafia ninjas in various poses. For two weeks or so, you will be able to buy either (or both) of these shirts.

After that time period is up, the more popular design will become a permanent addition to the shop, while the other design will be retired. But for a couple of weeks you'll be able to have your choice. Sound groovy? Groovy. I'll get cracking on the second design over the weekend, and hopefully, I'll be taking preorders by the middle of next week.

Ninjas. I can't stand them. They're everywhere.

The reason that it is taking so long for me to get the Ninja Mafia shirt ready is that I'm having trouble designing it. But I think I may have a winner. Do you like the rough version below? Or would you prefer one without the van? If you think you would actually buy one or the other, email me and let me know your preference. Please be honest! If you don't think you'd buy either, I am OK with that. We're cool.

You know, I never conciously restrict myself to the standard four panel format -- only a consistent height and width for the overall comic. But I usually wind up with four panels anyhow because it's hard to fit a joke into three panels or legible artwork into five.

PS: Nintendo sure knows how to keep me happy.
