History

The project started in late June 2020 when CakeBrunch was approached by Justin Chapman[2] because the crew liked a comic he made of Pickle and Taco.[3] They wanted to commission him to make Inanimate Insanity comics in a similar style. CakeBrunch was worried about ideas and his art style but Justin said the crew was all for his stylization and gave him lots of ideas to work with.

Volume #1 started on July 8, 2020 with "Complaints" and ran until September 9, 2020 with "Everything's About-OJ."

In the Inanimate Insanity Direct of April 1, 2021, the first five comics were revealed to be a part of a first volume, and Volume #2 was coming soon. Volume #2 started on April 16, 2021 with "Snow Bow".

Canonicity

The comics are considered "Level 2 canon," where "they can be considered canonical unless there’s any contradictions made in the actual series"[4] [5] if they ever need to contradict the comics for the main show,[6] according to CakeBrunch, Taylor Grodin and Justin Chapman on their respective Tumblrs.

Blurbs

This was the announcement for the series on the show's Twitter[1] on July 7, 2020, with slightly different announcements on the YouTube Community tab and on Taylor's Tumblr blog[7] the same day.

"🌟 Introducing: Inanimate Comics! 🌟
  A new series of webcomics featuring your favorite #InanimateInsanity characters! "


"Our first comic will be launching tomorrow, created by @cakebrunch!"

From the official website:

Trivia

  • No characters still competing in Inanimate Insanity II have physically appeared in the comics yet.
    • However, a lightbulb with a similar design to Lightbulb appeared in "Letters", the first reference to a currently-competing Inanimate Insanity II contestant.
