150: Calvin and Hobbes

Happy 150th cardBOREDsketch! Let's celebrate with some CALVIN AND HOBBES. I remember this li'l comic strip leaving a very big impression on me when I was a kid. My imagination soared to new levels after reading the collected editions. I very much wanted my own Hobbes but never found a toy that came quite to life like he did. Even at a young age I understood that through the eyes of adults, Hobbes was just a toy but to Calvin, he was his best friend that only he can play with.

149: Hey Brother

I'm sure everyone and their mother(boy) is tired of hearing about the new season of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT but I just finished watching it last night and I think it was great. It's worth a subscription to Netflix and the repeated viewings just like seasons 1-3. My lovely wife is about to wrap up season one, so it'll be a Bluth household for a few weeks until she's blue in the face.

148: Khaaaan!!!

When we got back from our honeymoon, we watched the new J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK(s) back to back. INTO DARKNESS was absolutely brilliant. Here's a nod to to the original sequel, WRATH OF KHAN....oh um spoilers I guess. :P

125: Bluntman and Chronic

I am super happy that I will be basking in the sun on a beach in beautiful Punta Cana for my honeymoon a week from now. The comic book nerd in me is sad that I'll be missing JAY AND SILENT BOB'S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE as it rolls into Chicago May 19.

Honeymoon with the wife or watching two stoners try and fight crime...decisions. Snootch.

124: Action Cat & Adventure Bug, AW YEAH COMICS!

At C2E2 last weekend I was able to get the first two issues of AW YEAH COMICS from the crazy talented Art Baltazar and Franco. These two guys are building an empire and it started with their sweet comic book store and their super funded kickstarter. Now they are getting amazing talents to work on these issues including friends Dave Gruba and Rene Castellano over at Instant Press Comics.

All this comics talk reminds me to remind you that I'll be at Dreamland Comics in Schaumburg doing free #cardBOREDsketches from 11am-2pm! Come on in!

122: Bektah, Scratch 9

SCRATCH9 creator, Rob Worley announced Scratch9: Cat Tails #1 is available for pre-ordering! I met Rob last year when he donated to my HEART campaign and got some Scratch9 themed #cardBOREDsketch cards done. He approached me at Kids Read Comics to be a part of his new anthology, Cat Tails. I was beyond thrilled and even more thrilled when he asked me to draw the story of the mummy cat, Bektah.

121: Bodie Troll

Happy May 1st! I finally got my hands on an issue of Jay P. Fosgitt's BODIE TROLL and it is awesome! I got to hang out with Jay a little bit at C2E2 this weekend and he's such a nice guy. I look forward to sharing more convention floors with him in the years to come.

If you have a chance, pick this book up. It's fairytale meets hijinks and it's wonderfully illustrated.
