UPDATES

April 22, 2017

So much time and so little to do…. no… strike that… now reverse it.  There we go.  Yes , there is so much to talk about, where does one begin?  THE MIDDLE!  To start at the beginning is so predictable.

My PATREON page is a good middle place to begin.  If you haven’t heard of Patreon it’s where creative types can have people support them on a monthly basis to help them to keep creating.  It’s a lovely concept.  Now if I only had some supporters there it would be even better.  I have perks for some of the tiers but the one I’m gonna focus on is the $2 a month tier.  That is such a low price and you get so much.  You will get to see the pages for the DOX graphic novel or graphic novels as I draw and produce them.  I wrote the novel years ago and just got around to publishing it a month ago….. Time has no meaning to me, which might explain why I’m always burning my biscuits…. The DOX NOVEL can be bought on my lulu page which I believe , and I’m unanimous in this, that the word DOX is being linked to it.  I’ve decided to do it in a more fun style than I was trying before.  A style that fits me a little better and is a bit more distinctive too, I believe.  Check out the Shak-a-ree … they’re a nasty bit of business I’ll tell you.

….mmmm…. one of these guys is a cyborg… I wonder how that happened?… mmmm …. Maybe you should buy the book… or join in supporting me on the Patreon and see as the pages unfold.  This sounds like so much fun, I can’t wait to draw it all.

What’s next … or previous… time has no meaning here…

BOOKS!!  I’ve been putting books out.  Links everywhere.  In no particular order… because that’s how we roll around here…  LIGHTS OUT vol. 2 is a horror comic written by my friend Landon McMinn and follows the adventures of a young boy and his teddy bear fighting the Supernatural.  He plans this to be a five part story and LIGHTS OUT vol 1 is also available cause you might want to read these in order. Both Books were illustrated by me , Andy B. CHildress.  Then there is the BUBBAWORLD COMIX OMNIBUS 2 I just put out a wee bit ago which means there is a BUBBAWORLD COMIX OMNIBUS 1 also.  They collect my six main humor titles in each book.  If you would like there is the BWC GAS GIANT: GALACTIC MAYHEM  Vol 1 and Vol 2 or the GAS GIANT PDF book that contains both of them.  Vol 1 and 2 combined are 700 pages of comicy goodness.  There’s more at my books page, even a coloring book for grown up folks.

This pic shows 16 of the 17 books I’ve put out in the last few years.

I plan to be doing some podcasts before to long.  One will be just geeks and nerds talking comics and nerddom and geekdom.  The other one will be a comedy audio series with a bit of sci fi thrown in for good measure.  More about these later… or before… however that works out.  Until then have a Bubbatastic Day.

Oh, and keep checking on BUBBAWORLD COMIX main website for one shot gag comics.

Block Printing

March 5, 2017

Over the last few years I have gotten back into block printing.  Basically you take a lino block and draw a design and then carve it out with some carving tools.  Then you take some ink with a roller and roll on the block and press it onto the paper.  Occasionally you may have some blood mixed in with the ink… I suggest cutting away from your other hand.  Really, I have the scars to push this point home.

I decided to do a chicken print in celebration of my comic character’s HERMAN THE PSYCHOTIC CHICKEN’s 33rd years since I created him.  So I decided to make 33 prints only.  So they will be numbered 1/33 to 33/33 like you do when labeling prints.  I will actually be making 66 prints in all… 33 will be in black and white and 33 will be hand painted with water colors.  And they will be avaliable for only $33 for the pair.  But only 33 people will be able to get them.  If you’re interested in this limited print then you can email me at bubbaworldcomix@gmail.com and see if they’re all gone yet.  Here’s the first one painted.

Also if you ever want to watch me making my art and comics I live stream it on my twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/bubbaworldcomix  .  Be sure to check it out sometime.

NEW YEAR’S UPDATE

January 1, 2017

Hello peoples.  I have a new collection book with all six of my main humor titles called BUBBAWORLD COMIX OMNIBUS VOL 2.  It is available HERE just click away.

I have been working on the ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER book which is also a humor comic.  The cool thing is that it will be available for free as a PDF online for anyone to read that would like to.  It will be ready in mid to late January at http://issuu.com/bubbaworldcomix so be sure to click there and follow me over there.  I will try to put out a humor comic ( usually a graphic novel size ) after this first one at least four times a year.  I’m doing my Monthly MISSISSIPPI ARTS AND CULTURE magazine there also.  It also afforded me a test run to check out the site.

My sci fi, horror , and adventure comics will still be for sale at my LULU page but as I start to sell ads in the PDF humor books I may be able to offer my print books cheaper.

I’m currently working ( literally right now ) on the second book of LIGHTS OUT for February .  Just click the name of the book for book one if you haven’t gotten it yet.  It is a horror comic.

In April, towards the end of the month I will be releasing SPACE REDNECKS : THERE GOES THE GALAXY on the http://issuu.com/bubbaworldcomix site as a free PDF humor comic graphic novel.

There will still be updates at BUBBAWORLD COMIX main page of humor one shot gag comics also.

There is more to come and I hope yall have a happy new year.

September 5, 2016

I’ve been working on the New ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER book.  It’s a humor comic about , well, a zombie hunter.  It has two stories with him and his sidekick Be-elza Boo Boo the demon.  It’s been fun working on this one.  I’m also about to start working on LIGHT OUT BOOK TWO of Five.  Landon McMinn ( the writer ) has is written,  I’ve just got to start laying out pages.  I want to have it done before Pensacon in Feb.  The BUBBAWORLD COMIX OMNIBUS VOL TWO is in my computer finished.  It just needs a cover and I can put it out.  My sci fi time travel novel DOX has been written for ten years.  I originally was going to use it as a manuscript to put out a series of graphic novels but never had the time so now it’s just coming out as a VERY illustrated novel.  I will be putting 151 illustrations in it actually.  That’s four books I’m working on at one time.  I have another waiting to start as soon as I get these , or some of these, done.  I’ve just counted and didn’t even realize that I had 13 books that I’ve self published.  Mostly humor, some horror.  I’ll post a list here then I have to get back to the drawing board.  I literally will be going to the drawing board…. I’m a CARTOONIST! YAY!  Yall have a Bubbatastic day why don’t ya.

CHANGE

November 30, 2015

“I’ve just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we’ve learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest. Pencils ready!”  Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory quote.

The only constant in the Universe is Change…. and my underwear…. and Change is coming to the BUBBAWORLD COMIX site , I tells ya.
For centuries ….. well maybe not centuries , although it feels like centuries, not that it’s a bad thing , just saying… for a long time now I have been doing six comic strip titles.  Originally when it was a paper it was six pages with each title a full page.  Then I made it four pages and each title got half a page with one title getting a full page.  Then I changed again…. I went to the interwebs.  It became a web comic.  I was updating six days a week.  That’s a lot for a web cartoonist.  A different title for each day of the week.  Then I had to take side jobs that became full time jobs and I made a new change.  I went to three updates a week, still pretty good, and did three titles one week and three titles the next week.  All this I was putting out collection books of the strips too.
Now the time for Change has come again.  Having six titles on one page makes the archives a little difficult.  I had six archive pages, one for each title, that held about ten strips each.  Then I created six wordpress sites for the full archives of each strip.  All six titles are humor strips and have one shot gag strips but each one of them has ongoing stories also.  With each title updating twice a month it’s a little hard to keep up with whats going on.  If it takes three or four strips to advance a story then you’re looking at it taking six to eight weeks to read that story while doing the same with five other titles.
Here is the Change.  I will be dropping all six titles on the BUBBAWORLD COMIX webpage and replace it with a one shot humor gag strip.  It won’t involve regular characters and will not have ongoing storylines.  Do not fear, the six original titles are not going anywhere.  They will become books.  I have a collection book that will be released in the upcoming weeks and more strips for a second collection book.  After that each title will have it’s on long base story in book form.  Around fifty pages or so which will be around a hundred strips.  Two strips per printed page.  The page count depends on how the story goes.  Hopefully I can come out with a book every couple of months and all the titles will be represented within the year.  I could never stop doing these titles, they are like my children…  they’ve just hit puberty and need to grow into something different , hopefully something better.
Two weeks and one day.  That’s how many updates of the old way will happen before the new Changes take place.  These are the last seven strips That I had written so I’m drawing them before switching over.  Until then, I’ll see ya in the funny pages.

P.S.  I will still be updating the six archive pages on wordpress with the new strips so those sites will still be active, and will announce books on those sites when the times come.

I’m on Patreon now!

April 17, 2015

I’m on Patreon now! Oh yeah!  “What’s patreon?”, you ask.  Only the best thing ever.  If you’re familiar with Kickstarter and IndyGoGo then you have the general idea.  It’s a site where creators ( art, comics, writers, film makers , ect. ) can be supported by people from all over from $1 a month on up to whatever they feel like helping with.  Unlike Kick and Indy , Patreon is on going.  It’s for people that are going to making content whether anyone is supporting them or not.  Now you can have supporters and possibly make more content.

I’m a cartoonist.  I write and draw six humor comic strips that I put up on my webpage at BUBBAWORLD COMIX.  I’m doing this no matter what.  I’m also working on some side projects also.  Some humor, some sci fi adventure, and some horror.  Them more supporters I get on Patreon the more time I can spend on writing and drawing.  Also, if you’re a supporter of my page you get perks.  The $1 per month donations gets to restore a little more faith I have in Humanity, and they get a nifty BWC wall paper for their computing device.  The $5 a month perk gets to see the pages that I’m working on for my side projects as I finish them.  They get to read the books before they’re printed and they will not be on the web anywhere else.  The people that support with $10 a month get access to a video series that I’m calling , “Making Comics”.  It’s me with the help of my monster puppet Roscoe showing how to make comics from scratch.  Drawing tips, character development, backgrounds, lettering , panels and layouts, and eventually even self publishing.  It will be a on going series and after I get to the point of making comics and producing them then the series will evolve into me making my projects and behind the scenes as I make those projects.  Also, The higher tiers have access to the lower tier perks as well.  There is also a $15 perk that gets a Bubbaworld Comix original art Sketch Card in color mailed to you for each month that you are supporting me at the $15 tier.  You also have access to the other tiers too.

If you like the sound of this then go to my site HERE and show your support and spread the word to your friends too.  Have a Bubbatastic day and I’ll see ya in the funny pages.

COOL STUFF I TELLS YA!

September 26, 2014

Who’s got three thumbs and is currently working on a ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER humor comic special AND is putting together another hardback book collection of his comic strips.  Me , that’s who.  Oh, by the way if any of you have lost a thumb recently I think I may have found it.

First off , I do six humor title comic strips regularly at my BUBBAWORLD COMIX site and archive each one on it’s own WordPress site.  But occasionally I will do a special of sorts.  I’ve done one ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER special in the past and now I’m working on ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER AND THE OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE VAMPIRE.  Fun fun fun I tells ya.  I wrote this one a while back but now I have the time to draw it.  I may write a few more stories and just release it in a hardback book instead of putting it online.  I put enough online with me other comics that you can get an idea of what I do and how I do it.

Then there’s the new collection book I’m putting together.  I could go ahead and finish it now but there are a few more CAPN’ GEEZER strips that I want to come out and be in the book so as not to chop off the end of a story arc.  This will be a collection that takes all six titles and divides them up into chapters.  It may be around 120 or 125 pages.  It will probably cost around twenty dollars which aint bad for a hardback book that size.

Each year I have been known to do a special around the Halloween time called TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD.  It usually takes the six main titles and crosses them over into a humor Halloween story.  This year will be a little different though.  Instead of doing it as an ongoing comic for a month that takes over the website I’m going to do a low budget animation on the youtubes type of thing.  It may only involve one of the titles also.  I can hardly wait to get around to doing this.  Stay tuned for more funness from the BUBBAWORLD COMIX and I’ll see ya in the funny pages.
