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.

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.

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.

THINK OR SWIM

June 6, 2014

Occasionally I do more than just write and draw comics on the interwebs at BUBBAWORLD COMIX.  I put out short films and such on the Youtubes, I do.  I’ve created a new gameshow for the youtubes called THINK OR SWIM and because of the marvels of modern technology you can go to the first episode by clicking on the name…. or HERE.  My first guest is a local film maker and youtuber in my home town, Landon.  His site is DARKSTEEL VIDEOS.  Click on his link also to check out his videos.  I’m in one of them and plan to be in more.

CAPN’ GEEZER comic strip COMPANION CONTEST

April 18, 2013

BUBBAWORLD COMIX is holding a contest for actual people to become companions in the CAPN’ GEEZER comic strip.  Travel thru space and time with Capn’ Geezer and his assistant , Bot , in a comic strip.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Your name and likeness will be a companion in the CAPN’ GEEZER comic strip.  If you win you can decide if you want your last name used or not.

It may be a one shot , it may be for weeks or months… there is no telling how long.  Zoe and Red Shirt have been there for 13 years so far.  I doubt it will be that long though.

This is a humor strip so there will be jokes and silly situations.  If you have any problem with you cartoon likeness being in those situations or saying things that I write then don’t enter the contest.  If you enter the contest you are giving me license to use this character the way I choose to do so.

If by chance you are a steampunker then let me know if you want to appear as your steampunk persona.

HOW TO ENTER

Multiple ways to enter

1.  Write an email and send it to me HERE telling me how much you want to be a companion traveling thru time and space with CAPN’ GEEZER & BOT.  Mention how long you have been reading CG or if you’ve just started reading it.  New fans have the same chance of wining as old fans.  Include a photo of yourself.  Close up and full body shot.  I will have to make you into a cartoon after all if you win.

2.  Or make a youtube video telling why you want to be a companion.  Pretty much the same as number one just as a video.  Of course you will be in the video so there’s the included pictures.  Try to get some close ups and full body shots.  I will be making a YouTube video and putting the link HERE for response videos to be added to it.  For now my youtube channel is HERE

3.  Bribe is an ugly word.  But it does works.  Presents and gifts will be accepted.

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.

TRAVEL VLOGGING TUPELO, MS

October 18, 2012

I went to Tupelo , MS to check out the two Halloween stores there and ended up getting some giant cartoon hand gloves to add to my accessories.  While I was there I figured it would be the perfect time to stop in at Poe Poz Comic shop in Tupelo and vlog a little with Geeky the Clown puppet.  Check it out HERE.

LAND MASS

August 28, 2012

Apparently Mississippi is a land mass now, or at least that’s how the Weather Channel sees us.  No big surprise really, I mean I remember when they would conveniently stand in front of MS when showing the map and talking about some storm system that was leaving Arkansas and approaching Alabama almost like it was going to teleport over or something.  Being referred to as a Land Mass is almost a step up actually.

I remember a few times when they would mention a town in MS followed by a stare into the camera for a brief second that almost seem to convey , “Oh, those poor bastards”.  When you’re ignored by the Weather Channel as much as we are and then your town is mentioned on the air you realize it’s because some “wrath of God” type of storm is barreling down on ya.  It’s so bad that even the Weather Channel can’t ignore it.  Can you imagine the panic in the streets of whatever town in MS that would be mentioned on air.  The people must have run out into the streets screaming , ” THE WEATHER CHANNEL MENTIONED OUR TOWN’S NAME!  WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! WE’RE DOOMED!  WE’RE DOOMED! “…. or something like that I would imagine.
