FREE COMICS BY EMAIL

December 9, 2011

I’m a freakin’ genius I tells ya.  Even though I couldn’t spell “genius” without spellcheck doesn’t mean a thing.  I write and draw comics, I do.  Better than that , I offer them for free to anyone that wants to read them.  Who doesn’t want to read free comics?  Communists maybe.  No… I bet even the communists like free comics.  I have a website but even better I offer an email pdf three days a week.  All you have to do is email me at bubbaworldcomix@gmail.net and tell me you want “free comics”.

You may wonder what kind of comics are on this email.  Does it make me psychic if you were wondering that?  I’ll have to look into that.  I have eight humor comics…..EIGHT!!  Every Monday you will get QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR ( a strip about two idiot brothers working for their dad.)  MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS ( as the name suggests, this is a strip about a psychotic chicken in a floppy ear hat and a pessimistic clown.)  & BUBBA GNOMES ( gnomes and mystical type stuff but with a redneck twist to it.)  On Wednesday you get DAWN OF TIME ( Bubba the Caveman and Milo the Chimp and their friends at the beginning of history.) CAPN’ GEEZER ( travel space and time with Capn’ Geezer and his companions.  Oh… his main arch nemesis , Major Evil, travels in a Port-O-Pottie time machine.) & !?!  (…. that’s right , I named a strip with punctuation.  It’s an experiment to see if I can do a strip with no words ever and convey the humor only thru the action of the character.)  On Friday there’s SPACE REDNECKS ( Houston , MS with it’s own space program.  Yes, the M.S.S. BESSIE II is a space shuttle that runs off of moonshine.)  & GOING BATTY ( A Mad Scientist & his pet bat and all the freaks in the castle…. including the grotesques humpbacked assistant , BUTTERCUP. )

Is that an impressive list of humor comic strips or what.  What more could anyone want?  A time travel action adventure comic strip saga that appears all three days each week you say.  That’s AMAZING!  I just happen to be preparing a time travel action adventure comic strip saga that will appear all three days of the week starting on Dec. 19.  The title of this strip will be DOX.   Be sure to join up now and start from the beginning.  It will be Awesome I tells ya.  Tell your friends… heck , tell your enemies …. spread the word so everybody can share in the awesomeness.

See Ya in the Funny Web Pages….

 

24 HOUR COMIC BOOK DAY & OTHER STUFF

August 30, 2011

It just occurred to me that I didnt even be putting a link in me earlier blog for my web comic site.  Well let me do that now before I gets distracted… Oh , something shiny!  What was i doing?… oh yeah… BUBBAWORLD COMIX is my web comic site, it is.  Now that I think about it I might have linked it… I’m not sure.  Well, I’m too lazy to check and see so it is most definitely linked here.  I do six humor titles .  One title for each day of the week.  That’s freakin’ awesome.  Seymour is my editor… did I mention that Seymour is my cat?… No…. well he is my cat.  I’ve been his human for over 16 years now.  My that’s a long time.  I dont know what I would do if something happened to him. Yes I do, I would run around my front yard screaming incoherently (  I spelled “incoherently” right the first time, I almost never get that word right ) while ripping my clothes and throwing myself down to the ground while beating my fists in the dirt.  My neighbors will probably just think , “Oh, it’s just another Tuesday night at that nutter cartoonist’s house again.”  Maybe I shouldnt do that so often… oh well.  Seymour is a good editor , … well he’s cheap.  He literally works for catfood.  He does seem to like the comics I show him though.  Of course he may realize he’s getting catfood if he approves of them.

24 HOUR COMIC BOOK DAY!! It’s going to be on Oct 1st.  I will be participating in it.  What is it you say, I will tells ya.  You draw comics for 24 hours straight.  I’m gonna be some kind of loopy by the end of that I tell ya what.  Rambling more than usual I bet.  I will be on the FACEBOOK updating my status as I go.  Some other cartoonists might be joining me online.  Every October I do a special comic where I cross all six titles into one humorous Halloween story called TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD.  Last year it was ” ATTACK OF THE WERECLOWN ” .  This year it will be , ” THE LEGEND OF THE MONKEY WOLF DOG “.  Fun I tells ya.  This will be my 24 hour comic.  I will be working on it that whole weekend and trying to get it ready to post to me site early the following week.  If you want to follow my loopyness on the FACEBOOK  then I’ve just linked the event page for you to go to.  If you want to friend me on the FACEBOOK then my page is linked to the word SUPERCALIFRASTICESPIALIDOSHIOUS  … Why did I link to that word you say?  I havent the foggiest idea why actually.  This is an event you can follow online from the comfort of your own home …. unless your home isn’t comfortable.  You can even comment and post as we draw for 24 hours straight just for your amusement.  Saturday October 1st from 10 a.m. till 10 a.m. the next day.  I’m pretty sure Seymour will be napping 23 of those 24 hours.

And once again you can find of of me books HERE, just follow the link.  You can get them in the traditional print format or as a download.  The downloads are cheaper and you can get more for less.  I’ve got 8 books out now.  Four are humor comic strip collections, Two are humor Halloween specials ( the TALES books I’ve mentioned earlier ) and Two are actual Horror Graphic Novels.  That’s right, I do Horror too.  I’m just versatile I tells ya.

Gotta go, but remember….. If you have a song stuck in your head, you might as well dance to it.

See Ya In The Funny Web Pages.

Books on CD vs Print

October 7, 2010

I’m experimenting with with PDF file books on CD now.  I have one I’ve just released that contains my first three collection books and my Halloween Humor book from 2009 into one huge volume.  It has bonus gag comics and an article about the evolution of BubbaWorld Comix.   It even comes with an original piece of artwork for the CD case cover.  You can get four of my books for the price of nearly one of them.

I like holding a book in my hand , but lets face it… I read a lot on the computer already.  If I found a deal like this from some of the cartoonists I follow I would probably snap it up in a heartbeat.

I’m considering even creating a book that will solely come out on CD.  Half will be a ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER story and the other half will be a new steam punk idea I’m working on.  It will be over a hundred page book that will cost five or six dollars as opposed to the fifteen or twenty dollars I would have to charge for a printed version.

The graphic novel series I’m planning to come out with about Time Travel was originally going to be five or six books released over as many years.  Now I’m wondering if I should just do one huge saga and sell it way cheaper than I could ever have it printed.  And the whole story could come out at once instead of spreading it over time so everyone’s wallets will have time to recover.

I can still have the books printed, just keep a couple of copies or order them special for the people that absolutely refuse or can’t use a CD book.

Let me know yall’s opinions on this.

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.

SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON

May 31, 2010

I am getting ready for the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON in Jackson MS.  It will be June 26 and 27.  Only 27 days away.

I ( BUBBAWORLD COMIX ) will  be in the Artist Alley with some other mighty fine artists, I’ll tell you what.  I was there last year and enjoyed every minute of it.  I plan to enjoy every minute of this year’s convention even more.  Last year I didn’t know any of the guys from the HEROES & DREAMS COMIC BOOK STORE in Flowood, MS or any of the other artists in the Artist Alley.  It didn’t take long to make friends with them and it seems like I’ve known them for years instead of  just the one.  So not only do I get to be in a cool Convention held in Jackson MS, and hang out with some cool folks and artists, but now they will be old friends this year.  And a whole weekend to get into a lot of craziness with them.

I will also be drawing up a storm of sketches and sketch cards with a lot pre drawn also.  Need your favorite Muppet with a Green Lantern ring, then I’m your man…need some Zombie Smurf cards, then I’m your man.  Want some BubbaWorld Comix original artwork,  then I’m definitely your man.

I will have books with me also.  BubbaWorld Comix Vol One & Two along with the horror graphic novel MISFITS & MAYHEM.  Most importantly though, I will be releasing BubbaWorld Comix Vol Three for the Con.  Vol One contains the collections from my humor titles QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR & MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS while Vol Two contains SPACE REDNECKS & GOING BATTY.  Vol Three will be the collection of CAPN’ GEEZER & DAWN OF TIME.  CAPN’ GEEZER is about a Time Traveler and his companions facing villians like, Major Evil, who travels thru time in his Port O Pottie Time Machine.  DAWN OF TIME is my humor title about Bubba the Caveman and his chimp friend Milo.  Bubba is the warm spot in the Gene Pool.  Since June of 2009 this will make my 5th book that I’ve self published.  TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD is the Halloween humor book that collects the Halloween humor stories that cross over all six of my BubbaWorld titles together.  Vol Two of this and Vol Two of MISFITS & MAYHEM will release in October 2010 but I will cover that more in another post.  Sadly to say I will not have any copies of the TALES book with me at the Con this year.  Needless to say, it’s been a busy year.

Lets talk more about the Con.  Larry Kenney will be there.  The Voice of Lion-O himself.  Not to mention he was also Count Chocula and Sonny the CoCo Puffs Bird.  He was there last year and he was awesome to hang out with.  Steven Butler, the artist for the Sonic the Hedghog book put out by Archie Comics, will be there.  Mitch Byrd is coming.  Both of them are legends in the comics industry.  Jesse Labbe and Anthony Coffee will be there.  They are responsible for BERONA’S WAR. It’s a pretty cool book, I already have mine.  Check it out at their website Amity Ink.  Another friend of mine I made last year at the Con and who is a pretty ding dang cool artist also is Shane Henderson.  He and his cousin are working on a horror graphic novel that I can’t wait to get my hands on.  Wade Acuff….you just need to come and check out his artwork.  You will be glad you did.  T.D. Roebuck does some pretty cool sketch cards and artwork.  I have a Tom Baker she did for me.  She’s married to a clown though…INKY THE CLOWN!  He’s awesome and should be at the Comic Con also.  He was there last year and was a blast.  Chuck Jett the Chucksquatch will be there doing sketch cards and if you like horror art then you need to check out some of his stuff.  He may even have his own book with him too.

There will be many more artists including the web cartoonists Kevin Hayman who does the ERRANT APPRENTICE comic strip.  Come on out and check them all out while they’re under one roof.  Then later that night at the same hotel will be a couple of get togethers.  I’ll just post the flyers fro them here.

The whole weekend will be a blast.  If I wasn’t already in the Artist Alley I would be getting me a hotel room and enjoy the full two days of the convention.  We’re lucky to have a shop in Mississippi with people who care enough to put this Comic Convention on in our own backyard.  And there will be other shops supporting it from around the state.  3 Alarm Comics from Biloxi will have an exhibitor booth and so will the newly opened CrossFire Comics from Meridian.  There will be plenty of other exhibitors there also so be sure to gather up your family and come out and get your geek on.

COMIC BOOK STORE APPERANCES

May 12, 2010

Two stores in two weeks.  It was AWESOME! I’ll tell you what.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY was May first.  It’s always on the first Saturday in May and I spent the entire day at HEROES & DREAMS in Flowood, MS.  There were a few of us artists there that day.  Myself of course, BUBBAWORLD COMIX.  T.D. Roebuck, Shane Henderson, Wade Acuff, Kevin Hayman (the ERRANT APPRENTICE), Jesse Labbe’ and Anthony Coffey were all there.  Some of us were promoting our books and all of us were doing sketches and sketch cards for the public.

The artist currently known as Chuck Jett spent the day with us too but didnt actually set up to draw.  Here he’s trying to capture someone’s soul.  The place was packed for most of the morning and then the crowd was still good but more managable after lunch time.  I took plenty of pictures of stuff Kevin drew but totally forgot to take any of what I was drawing.  I am the absent minded one at times.

Grand Master Josh was there and even someone turning in our pics to the empire.

It was a great time, I sold sketch cards and sketches and commissions and was very happy.  The store stayed open a little later than normal so I opted to go on home instead of going out to eat with everyone.  I do enjoy when I get to go out and eat with the guys.  I definitely will the next time.  It was an awesome day as it always is when I spend it at the HEROES & DREAMS in Flowood.  This is also the store that will be putting on the SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON in Jackson the last weekend of June of this year (2010) at the Cabot Lodge.  I will be in the Artist Alley both Saturday and Sunday.  Be sure to check it out.

The following Saturday I was in Meridian, MS at Crossfire Comics.

This was also an awesome weekend.  Some of the same folks were there with us and more.  Myself ( BUBBAWORLD COMIX ) and my partner on the MISFITS & MAYHEM horror graphic novel Shane Sullivan, T.D. Roebuck and Wade Acuff from the previous weekend.  James Powell and Oliver Twisted came up from the coast area along with Mitch Byrd and Steven Butler and Bryan King ( Neo-Earth ).  Chuck Jett was also there and was set up this time with his art and sketches.

Shane even got Steven Butler to draw him a Savage Sword of Sonic… in case you live in a cave and dont know, Steven is the artist for Sonic the Hedgehog comic book from Archie Comics…..and I just realized once again I forgot to take pictures of the things I was actually drawing.

…and of course there was the jam piece that all the artists contributed on.  Those are always fun to do.  We really need to do one for Heroes & Dreams at the convention in June.

Also I was interviewed by the local news in Meridian while at Crossfire Comics and you can see it here http://www.wtok.com/home/headlines/93209049.html

SIGNINGS, CONVENTIONS and SUCH

April 23, 2010

I , BUBBAWORLD COMIX , will be at some places here within the next three weeks.  April 24th, which is on a Saturday, I will be at the first Arts & Crafts festival in Weir, MS.  One of the things that concerns me of this appearance is the weather.  It may be raining and T-storms that day.  If I wake up Saturday morning and it’s raining I will not be going to an out door festival.  If however the weather is good I will be setting up my tent and may even stat doing Comic-a-tures .  Similar to caricatures but I will be drawing people more like they were a character out of a comic strip or book.

Much like I did myself here.  It’s also the perfect weight loss plan.  I just drew myself the size I ought to be.  I literally erased those pounds.  I will probably start doing these at my other signings if they do well for me.

The next event will be FREE COMIC BOOK DAY at Heroes & Dreams in Flowood, MS.  I will be there with other local Mississippi artists drawing sketches, sketch cards and comic-a-tures.  I’m really looking forward to this also.  Every year Comic Book Shops give out special free promotional comics all across the nation on the first Saturday in May.  This year it’s on May 1st.  I believe that they will be open from 10 am till 8 pm.  Check out the HEROES & DREAMS website for more information about them.  I go to Heroes & Dreams a lot now doing signings and sketch sessions and always enjoy myself immensely.  This will be the first FCBD that I spend with them.  I’ve gone to others in different places before.  At one I got the actor that plays Aquaman on the WB Smallville series to sign my Namor #1.

Something else that I’m really looking forward to is the opening of a new Comic Book Shop in Meridian, MS.  Crossfire Comics will be opening the first week of May and will be having an Artist Summit May 8th.  Also on a Saturday.  Myself and some other fine Mississippi cartoonists/artists will be at this gathering.  Steven Butler and Mitch Byrd will even be joining us for this one.  Mississippi needs more Comic Book Stores and Meridian is a good place for one to open.  If you cant make it to Flowood on FCBD and Meridian is closer then show up at CrossFire Comics.  But by all means, if you can make both do it.  Lets support our Comic Book Shops that put on these events for their customers.

If you are on the coast FCBD will be celebrated by 3 Alarm Comics and will have some fine artists there too.  I will be in Flowood that day but do enjoy when I’m able to hang out on the coast with Scott and them.

MISSISSIPPI’s SOUTHERN FRIED COMIC CON will be held the last weekend of June.  June 26 & 27.  The fine folks at HEROES & DREAMS will be throwing another fine Comic Con in Jackson at the Cabot Lodge this year.  I will be there along with some mighty fine cartoonists & Artists.  Larry Kenney the voice of Lion-O of the Thundercats will be there again and he is a blast to hang out with.  I’ve been looking forward to this show all year.  I made some good friends at it last year and will enjoy having a whole weekend to hang out with them.  I provided a link to the con and they have a facebook page for the latest updates.  All three Comic Book Shops I’ve mentioned in this post will be represented there.  I think they are even planning panels this year.  I dont have the details on those yet.  If you’re in Mississippi and enjoy comics or Sci Fi then you should really support this Con.  I was at it last year and I plan to be at it every year they put it on.  Come out and see me at these shows, read my comics at the BUBBAWORLD COMIX web site and I’ll “See you in the Funny Web Pages.”
