Hey! I’m gonna have a spot at my local wacky people convention, the Alabama Phoenix Festival, the weekend of May 25-27, here in my hometown of Birmingham. I’ll do caricatures and such, but I figured it sure would be nice if I had a real-live, printed-on-paper comic book to hock. So I’m gonna do a small run of print-on-demand comics, collecting all of Jakey the Jerk‘s adventures so far. And if you’re gonna make a comic book, you have to put something on the cover. So here’s what I drew. It’s based on the harrowing adventure that was had in Kablooey!!! – part 6.
(I expect this little self-publishing venture to be fun, but I’d also like to eventually get some of my stuff published by OTHER people! If you’ve got a connection to any of the weirder publishers out there, send them my way, will ya?)
I haven’t priced Jakey the Jerk #1 yet, but I’ll try to keep it reasonable. If anybody wants one, email me — cgarrison [at] bham.rr.com — and I’ll put you on a list of people to notify when they’re ready.
Next week, back to Ghost of a Chance, starring Onion Puss!
