– Here’s a guest strip from Barry Deutsch. I have 7 housemates besides Charles (for real), and that’s just too many to add to the comic. I left Barry out for pretty much the exact reason mentioned here, but now it’s kind of become a running joke. Barry is the creator of the multiple award winning graphic novel series Hereville (oh, which I did the colors for!). Hereville started out as a web comic, and watching Barry work on the series was what convinced me to try my own!
– Here’s some art that I don’t think any of you have seen before. This was a marker illustration done for a kickstarter backer. The scan didn’t come out great but I actually like the drawing a lot! Click on the image to see it at full size!
– The Patreon campaign is going great! Our first month just ended and we’re already getting close to our $500 Milestone Goal, which is a monthly live draw event! Well, not super close. We still have $140ish to go. But still!
– My friends Ben an Elaine have just started their Kickstarter for their new book. If you haven’t read Licensed Heroes yet you should totally check it out, and check out the kickstarter!
This is a great guest strip and the style makes me want someone to draw Modest Medusa visiting Bloom County. I think she’d have great fun with Opus, Binkley and the gang.
Why are there two Jakes?
I think Vest Jake is from a parallel dimension.
Who’s that other Jake?
HA! Very funny. 🙂
Love the kickstarter backer!
I didn’t know you were friends with a muppet. So worldly.
This comic makes me miss my days writing for a comic strip. I still have a few saved. but they only serve as memories of a short times where i thought i could create a webcomic series. I envy you and barry and everyone else with artistic talent.
My eldest girl loves Hereville, she had read her copy so many times I’m fairly sure it’s one sneeze away from falling apart.
I bet Barry is the Prince of Yeld. He could totally rock the horns.
Email me if you think your daughter would enjoy a sketch being emailed to her! –Barry
I like your team rocket shirt. Plus, I think shaving your beard off will spur this kind of reaction:
“Who is that strange man, and what did he do with Jake?”
I liked “Hereville” online and liked the book, too…but this one reminds me too much of early “Bloom County” for me to be comfortable with it. Make Barry a character in “Modest Medusa” instead…
Barry’s non-Hereville work is very “Bloom County”.
Guys who don’t have any concept of personal space with other guys can be very… I don’t know. You have to be good friends with them to tolerate them.
For some unknown reason, one of my closest friends, who is an immigrant from Cambodia, loves to greet me by grabbing my chest.
I suspect it’s because I’ll fight back, even though I know he knows kung-fu and is stronger than me. Thinking about it, he probably does it because I do fight back. There’s no way I can just let him get away with it, though.
It’s a catch-22.
