Above is the Beetle Bailey strip that Jason Martin and I used for the basis of our second Double Blind jam strip. I’m not embarrassed to say that the finished product made me laugh out loud like an idiot.

Jason Martin told me about a type of comic jam I’d never heard of called ‘Double Blind’. You find a comic strip and one person writes new words to go with the original pictures and the other person draws new pictures to go with the original words.
Neither person sees what the other is doing while you’re working so the results can be really different than what either person intended.
We did one based on the above Blondie strip. Check it out below!
My friend Jason Martin visited this weekend and shared a table with me at the small press comics show Extra Space in Columbus (it went well, thanks for asking)!
We had a great time nerding out over comics, music, food and comics. Also comics came up quite a bit.
After the show Jason and I decided to do some jam comics where we took turns writing and drawing a panel, hoping to have a coherent comic at the end of the page. I think they came out pretty good.
This is a book of 30 pages of just that, culled from a pile of my drawings I recently unearthed that somehow survived for the last quarter century in my Mom’s basement.
I’m proud to say, looking through this collection the only thing that gives me a similar feeling is flipping through a Rob Liefeld comic.
So I guess that’s a win.

When I got the idea to do a Mad Magazine style parody of the movie Point Break I figured it would be about eight pages or so. Just something to amuse my friend Doogie and I (both of us being huge fans of the film).
Somehow it inexplicably just kept going until it became what you see here. My first graphic novel. I sincerely hope you enjoy it, but don’t feel bad if you don’t. Me and Doogie both think it’s awesome.
