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.

STARTING BACK & NEW SCHEDULE

August 26, 2013

I penciled in three new comic strips today and plan to ink them in just a bit after writing this here blog I tells ya.  i have six main titles that usually updated on Monday thru Saturday.  I’ve been putting off  drawing for over three months now because of an injured wrist.  I’ve started back but will still be using a wrist brace as I draw and ink.  I will only be updating three times a week.  QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR, MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS and DAWN OF TIME will update next week and the week after that will be CAPN’ GEEZER , SPACE REDNECKS and GOING BATTY.  Each week will alternate between the set of three titles till I get to a place where I can produce six comics a week again.  I will also be working on the Halloween specials.  A new ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER is already written and ready to be drawn and I’m about to start writing on a new TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD.  I plan to have the New TALES start on Halloween day and go on for a month with ZACK continuing afterward for another month.  Both stories should be around 30 or so strips each.  This should get me thru the holidays and give me time to have some of the regular comics done up to be ahead for a change.  Yay.

So, starting Sept 2nd check out BUBBAWORLD COMIX for new updates.  The best ding dang comics in the civilized world and beyond Mississippi too.  Also I will begin updating the wordpress archives that I have for those comics also.

Don’t forget if you’re in north/central MS that the BACKWOODS COMICS FESTIVAL is Sept 28, 2013 at the Coliseum in Louisville, MS.

COMICS AND SPECIALS

January 29, 2013

I’m a cartoonist.  If you’ve read me blogs or seen my comic blogs you may have suspected this.  I write and draw many humor comic titles and put them on the interwebs , I do.  The main six humor titles appear on my website at BUBBAWORLD COMIX .  Usually they update every day…. a title for each day.  I take the Sundays off now don’t I.  Anyway, years ago I started a Halloween special.  At that time there were Halloween specials all over the web  by cartoonists.  Usually collaborations and such.  Now it’s not as common, sad really when you thinks about it.  I still do it.  I likes the way my special evolved over the years.  TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD is the title I started with for the special them oh so many years ago.  At first it was the brothers from the QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR comic strip telling tales from an actual appliance graveyard.  I would do Halloween horror humor with the different titles I had.  Then it occurred to me that I could do a cross over event.  Yeah , that’s the ticket.  I would cross over QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR, MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS, DAWN OF TIME, CAPN’ GEEZER, SPACE REDNECKS & GOING BATTY into one horror humor special each year.  It worked.  I’ve done it each year on my BWC website.

The first year I had a bit of a happy accident.  I broke the fourth wall with the CAPN’ GEEZER characters.  the Capn’ and Bot have two companions traveling with them in his time machine.  Zoe and Red Shirt.  I had been drawing my strips for years and stockpiling them.  I had even put them in a self published monthly paper here locally.  When I decided to fully go online with me comics I started from the beginning of the strips I had been stockpiling.  So in the Halloween special the Red Shirt companion mentions that he has not been introduced into the series online yet but was with them for the special.  The Capn’ replies that he’s a time traveler and that Red Shirt will be a companion and that he can cross his own time line for a holiday special.  So I uploaded that page and was pleased with myself.  The following Thursday, the day CAPN’ GEEZER updates on, I uploaded the CG strip and realized it was the first appearance and introduction of Zoe.  Zoe herself had not even been introduced into the strip yet.  Even though these are humor strips I tend to have story lines and occasionally will call back on past events.  But I have decided that each Halloween TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD specials would have something of the future hinted in it.

One year I had the CAPN’ GEEZER strip written way ahead of the one showing up on the web in updates.  I was also way ahead on drawing the CG strip and had just been updating it and not drawing new ones for a little while.  I had been drawing Bot’s new body and getting use to the design when I did the Halloween special that year.  I drew Bot in his new body and never realized it till after the updates.  That was fine though.  Thru time travel we got another peak into the future.  Another year I was doing my comics in a new style that hadn’t started showing up in the updates before the Halloween special was drawn that way, it also had the Emu that was about to make an appearance in each title.  In twenty eleven I had redisgned the SPACE REDNECKS space ship but it was first seen in the TALES special for that year before it happened.  The question is what did I hide in plain sight this time ( 2012 ) that will be showing up in the titles.  I guess you’re just gonna have to read the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD : IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE special and then the ARCHIVES of my comic strips to find out.

HORROR MOVIE MARATHON

October 30, 2011

You’re probably been thinking, “Where’s he at?  Why hasn’t he posted any blogs lately?  Is he dead in a ditch?  How many licks does it take to get to the center of this tootsie roll lolly pop, Mr Owl?”  Quit searching the ditches, I’m fine.  To be perfectly honest I didnt even notice myself missing… mainly due to the fact that no matter where I went , there I was. 

It’s Horror Movie Marathon night.  Something I do around every Halloween.  Whichever friends can join me help.  How they actually help I’m not sure.  It aint like they prop my eyelids open the later it gets.  they’re just there watching the same movies with me… and eating my candy.  Ah, they help me eat my candy, although that aint really much help.  I like my candy…. they’re being more of a hinderance now that I think of it.  I may have to rethink this next year.  BRINGS YOUR OWN CANDY YOU CANDY EATING GOOF’S , I’ll yell.  That should do it.

After the Horror Movie Marathon we will listen to the Coast to Coast AM Radio Show.  There are some freaks that call in to that show I tells ya.  They will just about let anyone talk on the radio that calls in on open lines night.  Which makes me wonder what they think of me when they quit ansewing my phone calls.  Oh well, Ob la da sey la vie…. or something like that anyway.

I’ve started an email comics paper by email I have.  I’m sending it to anyone that wants it for free.  They just have to let me know they want it and the email address they want it sent too.  Apparently telepathy isnt the best way to let me know seeing as how I havent received any emails by thoughts yet.  So if you want it just email me at bubbaworldcomix (at) gmail (dot) com  .   I wrote it that way so the spammers wont be sending me so much I tells ya.

See Ya in the Funny Pages.

YOUTUBE VIDEOS & HALLOWEEN CANDY OH MY!

September 14, 2011

I just did a video…. on the youtube even.  BUBBAWORLD COMIX LOW BUDGET CARTOON THEATER.  I plan to do more of these in the future too….. I’m not so sure about the past though.  I dont think I will be doing any others back then.  My time machine is on the fritz again , and by on the fritz again I mean it’s never has worked.  Oh well.  There will be plenty more in the future and when we get there we will look back and say, “Hey …. there’s a lot more of these Low Budget Cartoons in the past now!”  And we will all be pleasantly confused.   I even linked the video for ya’s I did.

I have six different humor titles , my that’s a lot, and I plan to eventually use all of them in the Low Budget Cartoon Theater.  I also plan to put them out semi regularly.  I also plan to keep working on my time machine.  One day if it works I may travel back and tell myself it wasnt worth all the bother and to give up on it.

I’M EATING HALLOWEEN CANDY AND IT’S ONLY THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER!!!   I’m eating it while I write this here blog I am.  It’s not even the year old stuff that you find in between your couch cushions on them cold lonely nights when you wonder if it’s still safe to eat while you’re already chewing on it!  NO!  This is the good stuff that is hitting the store shelves a month early.  Two months early is you realize that Halloween is at the end of the month.  But that’s okay…. I’m an adult now…. in age anyway…. and don’t have to wait on having Halloween candy till Halloween.  I can buy bags of it and munch on it now.  Of course my friends say, ” You might eat it all up before Halloween and not have any for the Trick or Treaters.”  To which my reply is always, “SO!  Let the little beggars go out and get a job and buy there own freakin’ candy.”  I will probably also be mildly curious as to how they avoided and got past all  the traps.

I’ve gots to go draw sumpthin’….

NEW BOOK: BUBBAWORLD COMIX VOL 4

February 18, 2011

That’s right interwebers, I will shortly be putting out Vol 4 of BUBBAWORLD COMIX. Ironically Vol 4 is my eighth book to self publish…. the math seems a little odd there, doesn’t it. Well I have put out two Horror Graphic Novels and two Halloween Humor specials, so if you were the least bit confused , that accounts for the other four books……I LIKE JELLY BABBIES……

VOL4 will bring us full circle. I collect strips from two of my six humor titles for each volume. We have come back around and this book will contain strips from QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR and MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS.

If you are new to BUBBAWORLD COMIX, first let me say I’m glad you’ve finally crawled out from that rock you’ve been under, next let me tell ya about these two titles quickly.
QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR is a comic strip about two idiot brothers working for there dad in the appliance repair business. They have misadventures involving coffee shops, neurotic mailmen, aliens, Elvis, redneck neighbors, Bigfoots….Bigfeet?… and so on. Occasionally they get a service call run.
MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS , as the name suggests, is a comic strip about a psychotic chicken in a floppy ear hat and a pessimistic Clown that lives next door. Herman (the psychotic chicken) does live with two Swamp Dragons by the names of Bill & Bubba. Knothead the Clown lives in a two story mobile home next to the Swamp Dragons’ cave. It’s a rather nice cave with lovely furniture. Sort of like what a Hobbit Hole would look like if the Hobbit was seven feet tall and had long tails.

The past three volumes of BUBBAWORLD COMIX have been flip books. Each title had it’s own cover and half the book was upside down to the other half. I have started releasing my books as PDF’s now. In order to make the transition to a downloadable file or a book on CD easier for me I’m only doing one cover. Also the entire book will be orientated in one direction. It will be divided into two chapters, one for each title. And it will have a black and white cover for each chapter inside the book with a color cover on the outside using characters from both titles in it.

The book will be over 100 pages and will cost $20. You will be able to get the download for $5.

If you are interested in any of the other books I have done then go HERE and check them out. They’re available in print or download there. I will be blogging again when I get closer to releasing the book. That shouldn’t be long. I have the file nearly finished. I just have to make a cover and the two chapter inside covers.

Buy Horror Graphic Novels and Halloween Themed Comics

October 24, 2010

GO HERE TO BUY THE HORROR GRAPHIC NOVELS ….. MISFITS & MAYHEM VOL 2 AND MISFITS & MAYHEM VOL 1.

I’m finished with the MISFITS & MAYHEM VOL 2 horror graphic novel. The link above will take you to a page where you can buy all of my books. They are all available as traditional print books or as a download. The download is way cheaper too.

This is the cover to MISFITS & MAYHEM 2. I’m rather proud of the lettering I did on the name. It , like the first one, has six short horror stories. Three are written by me, Andy B. Childress, and the other three are written by Shane Sullivan. The stories are once again introduced by the horror host Creepy Clyde and his misfit band of performers from his Night Carnival. There’s even a Hell Hound this year.

This is a HORROR BOOK. I’m known for my humor books so I just want to point out that the M&M books have violence and death in it.

But if it is HUMOR that you like I have the new TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD : IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN MASSACRE DR. BROWN!

This is the second vol of TALES and it of course has last year’s web comic Halloween special that appeared at BUBBAWORLD COMIX. It also contains all new content in the ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER story. Yes the Zombie story is done in a humorous style also. Trust me you’ll love it.

You will want to read this story just to see the cool Zombie Mobile I gave him. There will be a new TALES this year on or slightly before Halloween at BUBBAWORLD COMIX. Be sure to check it out and go get the books or downloads of them at MY STOREFRONT now.

Download Comic Books

October 20, 2010

I’ve recently took the first four of my books and made it into one huge pdf file book on CD. I have no way to offer this book for a download but the place that I get my books in print form can offer all of my regular books as down loadable files. You can now get all seven of my books from that site as either a print book or a down loadable file just by going HERE.  I will be putting my future books up in the same location for download.  The good thing about the downloadable books is that you can get them a lot cheaper than the print books.
