Backwoods Comics Festival was a Blast

October 9, 2012

The BWCF was a blast I tells ya.  Cartoonists , writers , artists, comics and collectiable vendors, cospalyers and even a sweetshop selling Jelly Babies.  That’s right, I said Jelly Babies!  They’re a delicacy on Earth I tells ya.

AND CLOWNS! I FORGOT TO MENTION CLOWNS!  Inky the Clown, only the bestus Clown in all of creation I tells ya, was there…

….and Geeky the Clown Puppet was there , and apparently he has a twin sister …..

…. and Jimmy Johnson , creator of the ARLO & JANIS comic strip , was there to sign copies of his new book.

If you didn’t make it to the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL then your life is sad and pathethic compared to those who did go.  But never fear , it will be back next year in the same place on the same weekend.  Sept 28, 2013 at the Coliseum in Louisville, MS.

DOX : a Time Travel Adventure comic strip Saga

March 4, 2012

I do a lot in the way of comics I tells ya.  I keep losing count on how many comics I actually draw and write.  Each week I have to draw a strip for each of my eight main humor titles.  I also have a ninth humor title that I do as specials.  I also do a Mississippi and National political comic weekly now.  I’ve worked on Horror graphic novels in the past and will do more in the future.  But I am right now drawing THREE pages every week for an action adventure time travel saga comic strip that I call DOX.

I put this comic strip at the bottom of each page ( total of three each week ) of my Digital Periodical that I send out free to subscribers. It has the eight amin humor titles that I mentioned earlier spread over the three days.  And the DOX strip is on every page Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.  But you can now catch up on the DOX saga with the archives that I put up on one of these here wordpress sites.  In fact, every time that the word DOX appears in this article it is linked to the site starting with the very first page.  Be sure to check it out.

Also , if you like my comics be sure to check out my BOOKS at the link provided.  You can order them online in print form or as PDF downloads.  And if you are in or near central MS come Sept 29 you can bring any books of mine you have for me to sign and draw in to the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL & TIME TRAVEL MEET UP.

I will talk about the other comics I do thru out the week.  Till then , See Ya in the Funny Pages.

SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON 2010

July 4, 2010

It was great , fabulous and I ( BUBBAWORLD COMIX ) had the time of my life, I’ll tell you what.  It was the weekend of June 27-28th and if you missed it I weep for you.  There’s always next year.  Start planning now cause you dont want to miss it.

It’s the third year for Jackson to have a con and the second for me to be a part of it.  It gets better each year.  It gives me a whole weekend to spend with the friends I made at it last year that I only get to see once in awhile every few weeks at the Heroes & Dreams ( Flowood MS ) during the year.  There are plenty of people in costumes, artists in artist alley, exhibitors, and people with comic books and merchandise.

I’ve been in the artist alley for the last two years and June marks the month I put my first collection book out.  I had my 3rd collection book that I released at the con which makes my 5th book total that I’ve put out since June 2009.  Next year I plan to not be in the artist alley and instead get an actual booth for my books and art.  I held off releasing this book so it would be a con release but next year I will be releasing BWC vol 5 at the beginning of June ( I know this because I release something every four months ) and I will be making a special unscheduled release for the Con next year.  THE DOX SAGA.  It’s a sci fi thriller that I’ve already written the whole series for and will be five or six graphic novels.  The first of which will be the Con release at the next con and I will release the others at the next five or six following cons.  I will post more on the DOX SAGA through out the year in more blogs.

DISCOMBOBULATED

June 2, 2010

I will be slightly busy for the next 3 months or so.  June the 12th is the PULPCON in Jackson at the Commons.  Some writers and artists will be gathering for this.  I will be one of them.

While I get ready for this I will also be preparing for the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON in Jackson on June 26-27.  I will be trying to get new sketch cards and sketches drawn up before the con but will also be taking requests at the con also.

But what I have really been working on is more books.  I will be releasing BUBBAWORLD COMIX VOL 3 at the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON.  It’s in my computer and all I have to do is a couple of covers and then I can order it.  This book will feature ” CAPN’ GEEZER:  Port O Pottie Time Machines, Oh My!” on side one and “DAWN OF TIME: The Warm Spot in the Gene Pool” on the other.  Yes, it will be a flip book like the first two comic collections I’ve already put out.  It’s Wednesday so I need to get on the ball and get those covers done.

I’ve also been working on the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD VOL 2.  It will be coming out in October.  It will put in print the special holiday special crossing over all six of my humor titles in the story “It’s The Great Pumpkin Massacre Dr Brown” that appeared on my BUBBAWORLDCOMIX.COM website last October.  As a special somethin’ somethin’ I’m adding a story with a brand new character that has never appeared anywhere on the web or in print.  ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER.  It’s another humor title that will appear in each TALES each year when they go to print.  I’ve been drawing the ZACK pages for the last week or so.  I’ve got the first 14 penciled and inked.  The story itself is 26 pages long.  I’ve been wanting to use this character for a couple or more years so I’m glad that I’m finally doing it.

I’m also working on the MISFITS & MAYHEM VOL 2.  It’s a horror graphic novel comic book with it’s own horror host.  This is one of the very few projects that I work with someone else on.  Shane Sullivan writes three of the stories and I write three of the stories.  Then we talked about the intros and outros with the Creepy Clyde horror host , then I draw and ink it in.  Shane just finished his stories about a week ago and I sat down one Saturday and banged out my three stories in about two hours.  I also finished writing the ZACK story while I was at it.  I’ve just penciled in the first page to M&M today.  It should be between 80 to 100 pages , which mean I need to draw and ink one to two pages every day for the next 90 days in order to get it done in time to put together in my computer and send off to the printers.  All this while also  finishing up the last ten pages to the ZACK story and writing and drawing THIS year’s TALES special that will be on the web for October.  Luckily I have all of September to finish that one.    But I still need to draw one regular humor comic strip a day just so I dont lose my buffer for my daily updated site.

Did I mention I have a sci fi graphic novel series I want to do?  I’ve already written it down….years ago….and am now in the process of thumbnailing the pages for the first of five or six part saga.  It deals with time travel and such.  Most likely it will start appearing in 2011 unless I magically find some spare time somewhere.  I work on appliances during the day so I have to make time for all this comic productions and what nots.

Be sure to make it to the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON on June 26 & 27 and pick up a book or a sketch or a sketch card from me.  I put Vol One out in June of 2009 and now I will have Vol 3 out in June 2010.  Along with the TALES and the MISFITS books that’s a total of five books I’ve put out this year.  I cant wait to see how this next year goes.
