Squad Car

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Recently my friend Eric reminded me that it has been awhile since I posted anything to this blog.

To remedy that I present to you a comic I did for my friend Joseph Tenney of Capricorn Comix out of North Carolina.

He created Squad Car and asked me to do a short comic about the character. I convinced him to let me do an origin story and had a blast doing so! There are only 20 copies of this comic in existence so I figured I’d post it here in case you missed it.

This is a comic about why you shouldn’t fuck with people. Also because it’s just not nice.

Day Off Diary… the comic!

Printed up this collection of Day Off Diary strips to give away at Genghis Con later this month (see previous post for more details).

That’s right… it’s FREE!!! And you can only get it at the con so come on out and make a day of it at an awesome comic show.

It’s true, you can read most every strip from this collection here on the blog, but I did do a brand new strip just for this book so make sure you pick up a copy at the show!

Edna says it’s pretty great, by the way.

Fantastic Four #9 Project

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

After nine years of commissioning cartoonists from all over North America to recreate a page from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four #9… it is finished!

Each page is redrawn by a different artist who put their own take on the original and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s truly a thing to behold! Just check out the beautiful cover by Nate Mcdonough!

Interior artists include Eric Shonborn, Avery Wynings, Chris Hoium, Christopher Mundy, Justin Wasson, Jeff Potter, Kevin Harris, Pat Kain, Kurt Dinse, Carrie McNinch, Jeffrey Brown, Noah Van Sciver, Jim Woodring, Anthony Vukojevich, Chester Brown, James Kochalka, Tom Williams, Nate Powell, Ron Rege jr, Dustin Harbin, Josue Menjivar and Brandon Graham!

It isn’t for sale, but if you stop by my table at S.P.A.C.E. (ths Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) on July 11th or 12th in Columbus I’d be happy to give you a free copy.

Six of the artists will be attending the show so you could totally get your copy autographed!

For more info on S.P.A.C.E. check out the convention website here.

After We Shot the Grizzly

This new mini-comic is my adaptation of one of my favorite songs by The Handsome Family. The words are the lyrics to the song of the same title from their Last Days of Wonder LP (with songs about Nikola Tesla, bowling alley bars, ghosts and falling in love with strangers at airports it is a great record start to finish).

In case you’re unfamiliar, The Handsome Family is Brett and Rennie Sparks. Rennie writes the lyrics, Brett writes the music and they both sing and play.

So, last year I wrote to Rennie Sparks to ask her permission to do this comic and to my delight she responded, “Go for it!” so off I went and did it!

Now it’s done and is $3 postpaid to anywhere in North America. Send well concealed cash to the address at the bottom of this page for this thirty page black and white mini-comic with full color cover.

Also, for some truly great music that some describe as American Folk or Country Gothic (I just call it awesome!) visit the Handsome Family’s website here.

UPDATE:
So, I just found out this wasn’t a new idea. A cartoonist from the UK by the name of Dan Berry already did it… and did it much better. I guess it’s true “There’s nothing new under the sun.”
Check out an example of Dan’s fantastic work here.
