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.
Almost a year in the making this is without a doubt the best issue of Veggie Dog Saturn! Features 8 collaborative stories by myself and such mini-comics giants as Kurt Dinse, Joe Grunenwald, Chris Hoium, Pat Kain, Jason Martin, Carrie McNinch, Brian John Mitchell and Eric Shonborn! As if that wasn’t enough there’s an amazing wraparound cover featuring the sweet sweet artwork of Jeff Potter and the coloring prowess of Wheeler Hall!
These little treasures retail for a mere $3 and will be available at SPACE this weekend in Columbus, Ohio as well as at Mavericks Cards and Comics in Kettering, Ohio. Or you could simply send the three bucks (postpaid) directly to me at Buyer Beware Comics po box 20083 Dayton, Oh. 45420 (or via paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Easily the most exciting comic project I’ve ever been involved with featuring an insanely diverse mix of some of my absolute favorite mini-comics artists of all time. If you only ever buy one comic from me this is the one. I’ll die a happy man because of this thing!
