I've always had a desire to do some
sort of regular comic strip, but never seemed to be able to come up
with the discipline to make it work out. I'm better off at one shot
things, if anything. Here's a "fun" look back at some trial and
error comics I've done at retroCRUSH through the years. Some of
these go back as far as 1997 or so.
THE ADVENTURES OF BONE BOY
I made these comic strips back in 2000,
and they're kind of funny to look back on in a train-wreck sort of
way. I was legitimately trying to make a bad strip, but I like the
character nonetheless and hope to bring him back some day.
I don't know why being a gay
necrophiliac is a punch line, but I always dug those classic comic
strips where the joke victim is so blown over that their heels shoot
up in the air in amazement. It's sort of the comic strip
equivalent of a spit take.
I used my good buddy Steve as the
poor victim of this comic strip. Steve has both eyes on the same
side of his face, as you can see. I also love the idea of giant
computers that still have reel to reel tapes on top.
Every good hero needs a good origin
story. Unfortunately, Bone-Boy's isn't very good.
Ha ha! What the fuck does this even
mean? It also just occurred to me that Bikini Girl's incessant
desire to screw Bone-Boy makes her a necrophiliac, too!
You can really notice he's checking
out her camel toe because of the dotted lines that are coming out of
Get it? See, she's dead so she can't
get a sex change, now! Let this be a lesson to you, kids!
I'm embarrassed to even put this
strip on there. You can't get more sexist than this, can you? Also,
check out the crazy proportions of Bikini Girl in panel 1. She looks
THE ADVENTURES OF NO-EYELID-MAN
This one still makes me laugh. It's
from round 2000, too, and was inspired by a silly 3 panel sketch my
buddy Steve Graf made in college that I re-adapted in these first 3
panels. Anyway, I liked the idea of traditional superhero origin
sources with more realistic side effects.
HULK VS. MISTER T SKETCH (2006)
I don't even remember drawing this at all, but I
I think what I'm trying to say with
this strip is that we have to stop listening to our dicks, and pay
more attention to what our taints are trying to say. Otherwise,
we just end up in arguments that end up in violence. Plus, I
think that if Hulk wants to fight fair, he shouldn't even be fighting
Mr. T at all, because he's a 50 year old cancer survivor, and even
though he's helluva tough, he'd likely get his head punched clean
off. But that's a strip for another day.
THE ADVENTURES OF SHIT-BOY
I did this back in 1994, and put it up
on the web many years later. I can't find the original art,
unfortunately, just this cut up version with a computer font pasted
