Comics Now Issue #2

According to David Hedgecock at APE Entertainment, Issue #2 has been printed and delivered to the folks at Diamond. Diamond is expected to distribute the magazines the second or third week of March. I'm still working on my strip for issue #3. I'll post some roughs shortly, Stay Tuned!

Presto Change-oh!

Well, I'm shelving the gag I had for issue #3. After finding out that most of the content for #3 will be themed towards the 70th anniversary of Superman, so I figured I may as well do the same. I hope to resurrect the existing gag for issue #4. It should still be funny then . . . heh.
