This ran in The Pacer (University of Tennessee, Martin's student paper) in September 23, 2008. The only time (so far) that my comic caused outrage.

I've done this several times before, and I won't lie, it's a pain in the ass, and a bit messy, But on the other hand, you get a neat effect out of it, so it's useful. Click on pics to embiggen:

I've picked up more comic work as of late, including a big one that I will announce later once everything is in place. In the meantime, I'm gearing up to release Smallbug Comics #1 by November. Attached are some pictures from the proof copy I received.
Thanks for being patient!

Today is the birthday of one of my cartooning heroes, Sergio Aragones. I'm a longtime fan of his, first from his work for MAD Magazine, then later for Groo the Wanderer, Day of the Dead, Sergio Funnies, and other comic book works.

Happy birthday, El Maestro!
