Size 8 1/2 x 11/ aprox 22 pages/ free from: Eraser Dust Comics 15096 Buena Vista Ave. White Rock, B.C. Canada , v4B1X9

Holy cow! I'm not sue how to describe this one! It's humor.....and the humor is something like Mike Goetz, but with a lot more characters. The artist is RC Johnston, who also has a band called "Quanset". He includes comics drawn on sticky backed paper, so you can make your own stickers. One of the stickers is a key hole you can hold it up to your eye, and spy on anyone, anywhere, anytime.

I am not sure what to make of the rest of the comic, other than it's different. Heck , get one their free, what could it hurt?

The Making Of a Comic Book Chapter #1

Since this blog is supposed to be about making homemade komics, I thought I would show the various steps in this project as they occur. I am doing the penciling and inking for a new issue of Tim Corrigan's "MightyGuy" comic. This issue is based on a plot line by me, called "Night of NIGHTOWL"
Tim wrote the script, lettered all the word balloons, and very lightly did the character layout and placement. All I have to do is the finished pencils, and the final inking. To make it even easier, he has included a typed narrative for each panel. The page shown here on the right is my pencil of panel one. The added challenge is to make the characters look like Tim's characters including the proper expressions. I am not sure how well the pencils will show up here but you can click on the image to enlarge it.
The page on the top ( sorry, the page with all the panels penciled should have been on the bottom) has panels two and three penciled. The next step is inking . Since I am working on three seperate projects at the same time, it may be a while before I get the inked page up on the the blog .

( Who are the Wasper Men?)/ digest size / 12 pages/ free to new readers/ from Jerry Smith 3344 Horner Dr. Morristown, TN 37814/

Let me quote a letter from Larry Blake to Jerry Smith, from the inside cover of this issue. It says more about Jerry's work in a few sentences, than I could in a couple of paragraphs.

" You have a host of strong concepts and characters that lesser comic's writers would kill for! All your titles I've seen are strong enough to carry their own series! You could draw like Da Vinci, but it'd be pointless if you had nothing to write that anyone would care about! Not everyone has the goods, Jerry, but you do! It's no wonder that you and Troy Hickman were such a good team....Your writing is as fresh as his... And way more imaginative in some ways. What I wouldn't give to be in on a brainstorming session with both of you at once! You have an amazing book here. I hope it goes on and on forever!"

I'll second that motion!
