Hey! The about page has Samwell University located in Samwell Massachusetts, USA! 

But here’s a map for reference:

I’ve still got to finish this, but this is the 2nd floor of the Haus during Bitty’s sophomore year! Can you guess whose room is whose? (And where the stairs to the attic are?)

State of Da Blog

Hey guys! Just a quick update. The next comic probably won’t go up for a while, so please don’t stress yourself out by checking the blog for updates.

When it does update…you’ll know. ._.!

In the meantime if you have any questions I’ll answer ‘em privately when I can! (I LOVE asks! I love all the ask-a-wellies too, but they’re hard to do.(; ʘ‿ʘ ))

Thanks for reading!

p.s. bitty also tweets like, urryday.

"No no no, come on, Shits, don’t tell them about that."
“Braaah, if we don’t, who will? Tradition and legacy and goddamn heritage and all that. Seniors gots responsibilities, son.”

So, I was re-reading this comic (again) and I when you introduced Lardo Shitty says something about getting "the fucking chop", so I was just wondering what Lardo's hair looked like before she cut it?

"…Wow."

"Please don’t quit."

I've been playing hockey for years and Check Please literally nails the entire game and its culture. How do you write it all so accurately if you've never played? I also play goalie and would love to see a main character between the pipes!

ngoziu:

Not only have I never played, I skate like a newborn giraffe and have literally held a hockey stick in my hand once!

And I’m from Texas.

I’ll probably do a FAQ/write-up on the creation of Check,Please!, but long story short, I did 3-months of hockey research my senior year of college in order to write my first screenplay Hardy, a story about a really butch hockey player named Chris Einhardt who falls for his best friend and former teammate. It has intellectual gems like:

MALKOV
…Yeah. Not really. But I mean,
everyone has like fucking random
thoughts. Okay, say you have like
a million thoughts in a year, so
maybe like 400 thousand are about
girls and stuff, and maybe 400
thousand are about hockey, and
maybe 1 of them has to be randomly
about a guy. Completely randomly.
But that thought may not even be a
full thought anyway. And you don’t
act on that, because, hey. That’s
pretty fucking gay. But there’s a
line. Now, gay guys—your friend?
Shit. Like 500, 600 thousand thoughts a
year about cocks and stuff.

HARDY
Six hundred thousand.

MALKOV
Ehhh, give or take a cock.

HARDY
Okay.

For the writing of that screenplay I interviewed hockey players at Yale (one of whom plays in the AHL!) and roommates of hockey players, talked to the hockey beat reporter for the newspaper, interviewed girls who dated hockey players, watched every single of documentary about hockey ever, checked out books from the library about hockey, hit up JSTOR for scholarly articles on hockey culture, watched Miracle/Goon/Slapshot and took notes during hockey games.

Believe you me, I was paranoid about stepping into this completely foreign culture and making some horrible faux pas. But the upside of the excessive research is that I had all this leftover hockey know-how when I completed the screenplay…

which I used to create Check,Please!

We know how Johnson sees Chowder, but how does Chowder see his predecessor? Is he in awe? A lil weirded out?

Why'd you add the bunny on his bed in the two most recent comics in his room?

Aw naw son Señor Bunny makes a few cameos—like Comic 8 for example.

He also starts appearing after Bitty finishes unpacking in Comic 2…and then goes into hibernation to reemerge in the spring. I don’t know what Bitty’s going to do about SB once he moves into the Haus. It’s in serious danger of Ransom and Holster taking selfies with it???
