    "It's all in the knees" comic #4
    I'm late updating my livejournal, so people may have caught my latest comic elsewhere.

    Junior high seems kind of like an "easy" target...but...I like easy targets!

    I posted some stuff on my blog from a strange and fun British comic strip...

    Patriotic Superheroes Year 2
    Decided to make the creation of new patriotic superheroes a July 4th tradition and this year Pete came up with two.

    Starting small:

    I think it's time for freedom-loving supertypes to be based on American radicals who, time has shown us, were ahead of their times. And then, you know, they get turned to bugs or something.If I'd been smart, I'd a had Susan B. Ant surfing on a dollar coin and saying "Don't forget your SOCIAL CHANGE" as she punched the face of a sexist criminal with the proportionate strength of a feminist ant!

    Pete created this one--the idea of a giant using the Washington monument as a sword seems worthy of Kirby...though my execution falls a bit short of that hype!

    Don't blame Pete for this next one--it's the corniest one, finding its source material in the lyrics to "You're a Grand Old Flag."

    The duo below comes straight out of "This Land Is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie. (The final line of the chorus: "This land was made for you and me.") Pete rewrote the lyrics to describe their origin.
    "As I was walking
    down a wonderful highway
    I saw a genie
    his name Jamie
    He told me
    I had three wishes

    I told him
    I'd narrow it down to one.

    The only wish I had
    was that my friend and I
    would be patriotic superheroes"
    And their names were U and Me!

    The glove keeps going
    I finished another 1/2 chapter of Power Glove.

    Also: Mark Martin did some Power Glove fan art. (Click on "Paul takes a bath.")

    Somebody pinch me!

    Oh, also had knee operation. Should be walking in a few days--and then the bionics kick in!

    I noticed the other day that somebody from Tempe, Arizona, has been reading my webcomics...a lot! Don't know if it's someone on livejournal, but if so, thanks! Want to buy some Power Glove coffee mugs? Seriously, if you're out there, let me know!

    Um, hopefully it's not someone looking to sue me for using a trademarked, um, Power Glove, for example.

    mobius comic
    I did a mobius strip comic, where the end of the strip leads directly and--possibly--seamlessly to the beginning.

    I did it because I edited a feature in Nick Mag where we asked Sam Henderson, Mark Martin, Jef Czekaj, Graham Annable, and James Kochalka to make mobius comics....and after I assigned it I wanted to prove to myself it was possible. (I maybe should have done that BEFORE assigning, but it all worked out.)

    Here's how some of the Nick Mag ones ended up.

    Anyone else want to try?

    Better late...
    I updated my blog with a comics-geeky season's greetings. It involves lip-reading.

    Milt Gross comics
    I posted an old Milt Gross comic on my log: Patsy Pancake is the title. And there's a penguin named Chives.

    It's awesome!

    KM, MB strip 2

    Finished another Kitty Man and Mighty Boots comic.

    There are talking animals in this strip, apparently.

    kitty man and mighty boots
    I'm doing some daily strip format Kitty Man and Mighty Boots comics on WebComicsNation. I like the format! Um, but not the daily part.

    Happy Black Saturday, mall-goers!

    EDIT: I fixed the link!

    Crafty Thankgiving
    Thanksgiving was good--it has been the last few years, because of a great tradition!

    Sean Taggart (painter and cartoonist and creator of the Jerky Boys cartoon incarnation) and Bronwyn Taggart (radio celebrity, Iowa boosteress, and awesome writer) come over. Bronwyn and Peggy cook, cook, cook while Sean, Pete, and I make crafts, place settings, and Thanksgiving decorations. Then we all eat.

    This year, Team: Decorate was joined by neice Cassie Clements of Bridgeport Texas. Bridgeport's loss was Cold Spring's gain--Cassie's a craft dynamo!

    Here's a selection of this year's decorations...

    I drawed this and Cassie colored it (watercolors) in like 10 seconds. I'm hoping she'll move to NY permanently so I can make her color everything I draw forever!

    Pete sculpted this skull and crossbones (plus tons of other things, but this was my fave). No direct Thanksgiving connection, but who cares?

    Turkey sculpture by Sean Taggart.

    This torch by Pete is cool. He made a cone, taped it, then strategically crumpled and shaped another piece of paper for the fire.

    the critic has spoken
    Tom Spurgeon, aka, reviewed Power Glove, my web comic.

    Lucky for me--Tom's a great writer, and it's so flattering to see his perfectly chosen words describing my comics efforts. Plus I think he liked them.

    Current Mood: grateful

    Power Glove--with the running, jumping, etc
    Updated POWER GLOVE finally! Lots of action in this one (eventually)--it was fun to draw.

    I'm cheating!
    It's hardly in the spirit of the "live" part of "livejournal" but Stephen DeStefano (big time awesome cartoonist and animation tycoon) posted a birthday comic I did for him years ago!

    book sale, ass-kicking eagles
    Garrison had its book sale this weekend--and as per usual I bought a lot of books. My boy Pete, though, struck it rich, with many good finds, including this book--which boasts the best combination of book title, book cover, and book-cover haircut in the history of literature.
    He's halfway through reading it.

    I got a good one, too!
    Haven't read it yet.

    Also: came up with a rough idea for a Power Glove storyline. The fellow below is a karate-action eagle named POW who is part of said story idea.

    Another John Stanley comic--on the interweb!
    I posted another John Stanley comic on my blog. This one is funny (but kind of creepy), as opposed to the last one, which was creepy (but kind of funny).

    Lunchtime comic
    I drew this comic for my son, Pete, to take in his lunch the other day (to read, not to eat). It took me like 4 minutes, but turned out pretty well. Why is it that the less planning the better for me? Perhaps it's cuz lack of any drawing skills means whatever I can whip off in a second is better than anything ambitious, which I inevitably work to death! Hooray for epiphanies!

    The evil DJ is threatening the crowd with "Nickelback." It got smudged.

    How did we all become such geeks? PLUS SCARY SKETCH
    I'm sitting here updating my livejournal while my son, Pete, plays Pokemon Colosseum, my wife goes off to do statistics (in between frantic crammings of "Deathly Hollows"), and I just organised all the comics on the magazine rack that dominates my living room.

    Oh, well, I guess I was always like this. Self-hate won't turn me into man who can exercize without whining and who can cook for himself.

    Here's a drawing Pete made yesterday. It's a glowing skeleton seen in a mirror (the mirror has a smiley face on it). Pretty cool, eh?
