Comics a-Plenty

Several of our fellow SHC's have new comics ventures that are definitely worth a mention here.  Interestingly, I'd say they all fall into a genre I'll call funny-auto-bio.  I think there are a lot of arty-auto-bio comics in the world, but not a lot of FUNNY-auto-bio comics.  However, all of a sudden, here are several great funny-auto-bio comics, being produced by Salty 'Hams:

Howard Cruse just launched a new webcomic series called Howard Cruse's Occasional Comix.  It's awesome, just as you'd expect from Cruse.


James Hislope has begun drawing a strip which he regularly posts to Facebook.  It's called A Warehouse Life.  It's fantastic, and I can't believe how fast he turns it out.


Meanwhile, Mark Martin has TWO funny-auto-bio comics running on Facebook: Rowdy and When Mitchy Met Janet.  As usual, he makes brilliance look effortless.

Sketch Cards

I recently finished my first non-charity sketch cards* for the U.K. based Unstoppable Cards' The Avengers 50th Anniversary Trading Card Set, based on the 1960's tv series.

My latest charity-based sketch cards are for Island Dreams, benfitting the Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital’s Family Assistance Fund.

I'm currently working on cards for Alterna Originals 5th Anniversary Card Set, I hope to have these finished and posted online in the next week or so.

*For those that don't know, sketch cards are trading card size (usually 2.5" x 3.5") original artwork that is inserted into packs of trading cards as a premium.
