Hey! Its our old friends SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE and BAGBOY! They’re really fun characters to draw. So it should be no surpirse that SMV and BagBoy will return again soon in both the next issue of MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE I’m doing–#7–but also they’ll co-star in an short I’m doing with ERIK NELSON. Both those will be out sometime this year.
Finally: Today’s Daily Goal Sketch was as fun to draw as it looks. Though if I had my way, I would have drawn the Thing as it appeared when Ms Marvel briefly took ol’ Ben Grimms place.
Yesterday (Dec 24th–aka: Usurped Pagan Holiday Eve) I got an most unexpected, but utterly delightful, holiday greeting letter (of a sort) from world traveler, MPLS Conspiracy alumni, and all-around swell cartoonist MAXEEM KONRARDY. ** It filled me with so much…ummm…not holiday spirit…umm…basically it made me happy to hear from an old friend. So here it. So hope to see you soon Maxeem, and also hope your Usurped Pagan Holiday is going well, dear friends everywhere.
** Maxeem is currently in a “race” with fellow cartoonist buddy ZANDER CANNON to see who can finish their long-in-gestating epic first. Maxeem is doing on EX NOVO LIBRIS and Zander is doing THE REPLACEMENT GOD. You can see the results at http://comiclusion.blogspot.com . Smart money is on Maxeem, but never count a Cannon Brother out before the count. Either way, I think the READER is the real winner.
The back cover pin-up for issue three was by the one and only MAXEEM(http://maxeem.com/)!
Maxeem is a cartoonist and world citizen who has graduated from MCAD, worked for BIG TIME ATTIC(www.bigtimeattic.com/blog), put out some wonderful self-published work, travelled and lived pretty much everywhere, and most of all Maxeem has decided the computers did it(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZryf1sZBQc).
I first discovered Max’s work when he was self-publishing the title POOP MONKEY several years back. Nowadays he’s given it the classy title EX NOVO LIBRIS and you can read the whole damn thing(so far, and Max tells me the conclusion IS coming) at http://maxeem.com/comics/enl/.
Thanks again Max!
