SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE–24 Hour Comic 2009–pg 5(of 24), also: INK PANTHERS, and FALLCON is tomorrow

pg 5

pg 5

   So, you’re “NOT” supposed to come into 24 Hour Comic Day without any preconceived ideas of what you are going to do.  To this I say: “POPPYCOCK!”  I know I can’t come into clean, and frankly in some ways I think thats kind of impossible.  Anyway, ever since I did the last SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE story (in MUSCLES AND FIGHTS 3) I knew I wanted to do another story with him and BAGBOY wher they meet up with a new character…the above BOXGIRL!  So that was one of the few ideas I came into this years 24 Hour Comic Day with.  Adding all the random idea generators and such certainly changed what I thought a BOXGIRL story would be like…but we still have several pages to see how that’ll all play out…

     ALSO:  Are you listening to the INK PANTHERS podcast by ALEX ROBINSON and MIKE DAWSON?  Well if you’re not you should be.  There.  I said it.  ….and I mean YOU TOO, Daniel J Olson!

   FINALLY: FALLCON starts tomorrow!!!  Stop by my booth and pick up the new comics I’ll have made myself or been a part of like:  TOMMY CHICAGO #3, PHIL THE EVIL BEAN OF DOOM, FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY, MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE: THE GUEST ARTIST SPECTACULAR, and ZINE SUPREME.  If so, I’ll see you SATURDAY and SUNDAY from 10am to 5pm at the FAIRGROUNDS!!!

SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE–24 Hour Comic 2009–pg 4(of 24)

pg 4

pg 4

    Panels 3 and 4 were from the GI JOE comic I used as a random idea generator.

   Say…are you PUMPED about the fact FALLCON is this weekend?!?!?!  If not for all the reasons you should be (like meeting masters of the comic form like Peter Bagge, Kevin Cannon, etc), then maybe cause you wanna pick up the new comics I’ll have made myself or been a part of like:  TOMMY CHICAGO #3, PHIL THE EVIL BEAN OF DOOM, FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY, MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE: THE GUEST ARTIST SPECTACULAR, and ZINE SUPREME.  If so, I’ll see you SATURDAY and SUNDAY from 10am to 5pm at the FAIRGROUNDS!!!

SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE–24 Hour Comic 2009–pg 2(of 24)

SMV24hr--pg2

  Two more places ideas for this 24 hour comic came from:

  1)  After the CITY PAGES COMIX ISSUE this year, an employee of the local food co-op, one Mr. Aaron Neumann, wrote me an email saying how much he liked my contribution and how much he hoped I never did a comic about the co-op.  What he didn’t know what that is what we cartoonists call a challenge.  Thusly, after I decided to do a SMV story I knew SMV and BAGBOY needed someplace new to work (having been gloriously fired in their last adventure from the SQUARESVILLE GROCERY STORE) and the co-op challenge was finally answered.  And in case you missed it on page one, Aaron is the co-op manager.  Worry not, he’ll be back in the tale later…

  2)  RANDOM IDEA GENERATOR:  Some used Pictionary.  Some just took some words from the dictionary.  I randomly chose 3 panels from here:

     I used either the dialogue (see panel 2 of this page) or a “re-imagining” of the panel art.

  Oh, and don’t forget to go to FALLCON this weekend.  I’ll be there with cool new stuf and a song in my heart.

COUNTDOWN to…24 HOUR COMIC DAY, FALLCON, FALSE WITNESS #2 and LAW IN POLITICS–day 4 (of 4)

   24 HOUR COMIC DAY is tomorrowSaturday October 3rd (to Sunday October 4th).  Locally(MPLS/STPL, MN) the event will be held at the MN CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS and begins at 10 AM.  All the details are HERE, and we’ll also be blogging throughout the day THERE as well.

FALSE WITNESS #2 -- NOW AVAILABLE!!!

FALSE WITNESS #2 -- NOW AVAILABLE!!!

 

   ALSO:  FALSE WITNESS #2 is now for sale online and at some local comic retailers (Source, Big Brain). It will also be available at FALLCON (Oct 10th and 11th)!.  It is written and pencilled by BILL PRENDERGAST, and features inks/finishes/etc by myself, LUPI MCGINTY, DANIEL J OLSON, JAMES POWELL, and RYAN DOW.  

     Speaking of that project, the October/November issue of LAW IN POLITICS (MINNESOTA) is now out and features an illustration of MN’s own highly-flammable Rep. Michele Bachmann I drew in FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY #1 cropped and colored(again by me) in their “TURKEYS OF THE YEAR” feature, in a section about Ms. Bachmann’s best quotes over the last year.  This issue of LAW AND POLITICS also kicks off the “TURKEYS…” features with a nice illustration by co-Conspirator KEN AVIDOR.  I don’t know if I have the right to post either of the images from the magazine here, so instead I’ll compromise with these:  First up a drawing Ken did of me in the battle of my life (from his LUTEFISK SUSHI ‘C’ contribution)…

    Recently on this here comic blog I posted a short tale called PHIL, THE EVIL BEAN OF DOOM which was written/co-plotted by an 18 year old me and drawn/co-plotted by a 17 year old DAN MURPHY.  Anyway, 15 years later Dan and I are teaming up again for the inevitable sequel/follow-up.  The results will be printed and debuting at FALLCON.  In addition to the new story, PHIL will feature a pin up by me…

    Yep.  To find what happens, swing by my or Brian’s table at FALLCON (though well probably be within spitting distance of each other) and pick up a copy of TOMMY CHICAGO #3 …and #’s 1 and 2 if you need those too.  You can also buy them online HERE.

  ALSO:  The Minneapolis cells own expatriate MIKE SGIER will have a new issue of his series TOBY AND SARA…sometime soon.  In the meanwhiles, you can read the series so far HERE, and also look at this pin-up I did of the T&S crew
