Unpublished Back to the Drawing Board from Comics Now #4

The final "Back to the Drawing Board" strip I submitted for the canned issue #4 of COMICS NOW!

I used Arim Zola because he was featured heavily in Captain America at the time I created the strip. I originally had Zola being dissed because he wasn't HD or needed a digital conversion box. I went with the Guitar Hero gag because I got to use a couple of goofy AIM Agents.

Comics Now! Magazine, We Hardly Knew Ye...

Sad News. Comics Now! Magazine is officially no more. It was a fun ride. Hopefully the fourth issue will surface somehow, I have my toes crossed. I have some other stuff in the works, so keep an eye out on this space for more details. Thanks to Bryan Deemer for the opportunity and to the guys at Ape Entertainment and the entire staff of the magazine. Lastly a big thanks to you for stopping by and giving our little dog and pony show a try! See ya in the pixelated funny pages!

Back to the Drawing Board from Issue #3

Here it is, the full strip from the just released issue #3 of COMICS NOW! I tried to capture the goofy Golden Age era of Superman with this strip.

If you look closely, you'll see a young Siegel and Shuster enjoying the festivities. My favorite part of the strip is the guy at the lower left.
