Here we go! The official beginning to “Heropotamus!”

A couple weeks ago I was listening to one of my favorite Christmas “novelty” songs with my girls. “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”. While watching them laugh and dance/march around, I had a thought. “This might make a fun comic strip concept… a little girl who gets a Hippo for Christmas” And as I listened to the words it hit me. There’s a line that goes “And see a Hippo Hero Standing there”


And “Heropotamus” was born.

It actually wasn’t named until after I sent a message to the guys at Crash Land Studio and said “Whatcha think?” and “Any ideas for the name?”.

It was then I discovered that Tommy HATED that song (don’t know how? Scrooge himself LOVED that song 😉 ), Jamie is an idea factory (actually, I didn’t discover that… I’ve known that… one of his ideas inspired the Hippo’s name. Hint: see the hippo’s twitter page) and Eric came up with the title we know and love…. HEROPOTAMUS!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little experiment. Feel free to tell your friends & family (even enemies) and come back every Monday, Wednesday & Friday for a new toon!

Have a great Christmas!

    Welcome to the world of webcomics (or at least new webcomics). Love the purple tint to everything. Very novel way to color a strip.

    Following crashland on twitter so I hope not to miss one. Good luck!!

    Great concept, looks like it will be fun to follow along. I’ll be here every MWF. I just added it to my Morning Coffee. Best Wishes on a great run.
