If you’re wondering about the billboard in panel 1: I’ve had The Best Show on my brain lately, particularly because a DVD I worked on for it finally shipped out this month! (The above image is from the video portion I worked on)
The Best Show is a weekly 3 hour comedy + music radio show hosted by Tom Scharpling. The show features amazing guests like Paul F Tompkins, Patton Oswalt, Jen Kirkman, Paul Scheer and more, along with random listener call-ins. Mixed in with the genuine calls are in-character calls from Tom’s comedy partner, Jon Wurster, who plays various bizarre characters, mostly from the fictional town of Newbridge, New Jersey. One might first mistake these for regular listener calls, but the conversation gradually veers toward the absurd by the end.
If you are one of the lucky folks who received a DVD from WFMU, check out the music video for Fucked Up’s “Ballad of Hammerhead”, which I animated along with John Dretzka and Adam Shumaker. The video was written by Matt Fraction and the artwork drawn by Chip Zdarsky.
