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.

Heroes & Dreams Signing

October 6, 2010

the HEROES & DREAMS anniversary will be Oct 16th in Flowood , MS.  That’s on a Saturday peoples, get out and check them out.  I will be there with my books and art.  I will have the new BUBBAWORLD COMIX GAS GIANT  Vol 1 with me.  The 406 page pdf file book on CD.

Here’s a couple of pictures of the CD books after I’ve done the original artwork for the CD case.  The Chicken and Clown in these pictures have already been sold but the great thing is I can draw more Chickens and Clowns at any time. The first four BWC books and a bunch of extras as a CD book for only $20.

Along with the GAS GIANT book on CD I will have two new “traditional” books with me.  TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD: IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN MASSACRE DR BROWN.  This book also contains the brand new content never before seen on the web ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER.  I will also have the MISFITS & MAYHEM VOL 2 with me.  Check out the Check someone used to by the new horror graphic novel and Halloween Humor special with.  ( important info has been whited out ).

isn’t it ironic, I really do think.

I will also have my art and sketch cards with me.

BUBBAWORLD COMIX UNIVERSE SKETCH CARDS part four

July 17, 2010

Above is Mr. Mann and he owns The Mann’s Bookstore.  It’s mostly comics, sci fi and horror.  Everything else is called miscellaneous and fits on one tiny shelf.

Below is Cho Nuff and he has the Feng Shui Coffee shop.  He’s from the far east…..Arkansas.

Sophisticated Al wears overalls , top hat, and a monocle which tends to upset Cho Nuff’s feng shui for his Coffee shop.

Below are three redneck aliens that fake crop circles to create confusion.  They only appeared in one MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS strip and I doubt I will use them again.

…..more to come later…… BUBBAWORLD COMIX

BubbaWorld Comix Universe Sketch Cards (part 2)

July 12, 2010

…..MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS sketch cards continued…..

Above  is BILL THE SWAMP DRAGON.  He’s the one with the goatee and necktie.  He and Bubba and Herman all live in a cave in the swamps of Nanih Waiya.  It’s a lovely cave that any Hobbit would be proud to call home.  Below is BUBBA THE SWAMP DRAGON.  He has the ascot tie and no facial hair.  Swamp Dragons like eating teddy bears and knocking the slats out of your bed and letting you blame someone or something else.  There’s a theory that there may be some sort of perception filter around them so people either ignore them or think they’re something else unless made to directly confront it.

Below are some views of the front door of the Swamp Dragon Cave.

FUZZYWHAT is pretty much what his name suggests.  A big lump of fur with eyes.  He’s from a different dimension.  There was rift to his dimension behind Herman’s boots in his closet that led to Fuzzywhat’s dimension that had been there for years.  Fuzzywhat decided to step thru to see what was on the other side and when he did the rift closed leaving Fuzzywhat trapped on this side.

….more to come later……

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

VAN’S ARTIST ALLEY UPDATE

September 23, 2009

We are getting closer, and closer to the Van’s artist alley in Ridgeland, MS on Hwy 51 at Van’s Comics & Cards.  There will be seven tables of Cartoonists and Writers there selling there art and books.

I ,bubbaworldcomix.com , will  be there with 3 new books myself.  BUBBAWORLD COMIX VOL ONE which contains a collection of strips from my two titles, QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR and MISSISSIPPIS SWAMP DRAGONS.   The second book is a Halloween special , TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD.  This one uses all six of my humor titles in Halloween themed stories.  They are specials that I have put up in the past three years on my website that I have collected in a book.  The third book is an actual Horror Graphic Novel, MISFITS & MAYHEM.  It even has it’s own Horror Host, Creepy Clyde.  It has six short horror stories, three written by me and three written by Shane Sullivan (who will be with me at Van’s Artist Alley).  All six stories were illistrated by me.

Be sure to tell everyone you know that would be interested in this to come out and support us.

GRAPHIC NOVELS UPDATE

September 16, 2009

I have ordered the MISFITS & MAYHEM horror graphic novel and should have them in shortly.  I have also ordered, at the same time, the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD Halloween special for BubbaWorld Comix .

MISFITS & MAYHEM is a graphic novel containing six horror stories.  Three are written by me, Andy B. Childress.  Three are written by my friend, Shane Sullivan.  All six stories are drawn, inked, and lettered by me, Andy B. Childress.  I did this book in a totally different style from the way I do my humor strips.  TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD is a collection of Halloween themed stories involving all six of my humor strip titles that appear on the BubbaWorldComix.com website.  Some of the stories even cross over some or all of the titles.  Come October there will be a new TALES special on the website.  The book collects all the past specials that are not avaliable online any longer.  The new special will only be up for the month of October and will come down the month of November.  It will come out in book form next year with a special story that will appear only in the book.  The new story will contain never before seen characters that I have been working on.

I love Halloween web comic specials but have trouble finding any online any more.  So I do one every year.

I will be promoting the two new books all thru October.  I have signings lined up for four of the five weekends of October.  The first three Saturdays will be in Jackson, MS.  Oct 3 will be at Van’s Artist Alley in Ridgeland, MS held in Van’s Comics & Cards.  Oct 10 will be in Flowood, Ms at the Heroes & Dreams Comic Shop.  Oct 17 will be in the Eudora Weltly Library in Jackson, Ms with the Imagicopter group.  Oct 3o will be at the Book Mart on Main Street in Starkville, Ms.

I will be releasing a BubbaWorld Comix collection book every four months and also other graphic novels from time to time.  I have already written a manuscript for a sci fi time travel graphic novel 5 or 6 part saga.  I’m currently working on thumbnail layouts for the pages of the first book in the saga.  All this while keeping a six day a week update schedule on my comics website.

CHUCK JET bio for VAN’S ARTIST ALLEY

August 28, 2009

This is the bio for Chuck Jet, another artist that will be appearing at Van’s Artist Alley in Ridgeland MS , Oct 3rd, 10am till 6pm.

Baptized in motor oil and raised in the shadows of the Catholic Church comes the “no holds barred” artwork of Chuck Jett. Chuck is currently turning his attention from the more traditional fine art background he suffered to the world of horror and sci-fi fantasy art, finding the challenges to be more fun and rewarding. When asked about being an artist and his techniques, Chuck replied, “I’d rather be a professional wrestler.”

Misfits & Mayhem Graphic Novel Update

August 20, 2009

The Horror graphic novel that I have been working on for the last while is finally all penciled in.  Now I just have to ink in the MISFITS & MAYHEM and do a cover and put it together in me computer.  It will go quicker than it seems.  For one thing, 2 1/2 of the 6 stories are already inked in.  Inking goes quicker than the drawing of it.  By the middle of the last week of August I should be through with it…. the weekend at the lastest.  Then I just have to scan them in and set up the book and email it off.  Which means it will be with me at the Van’s Artist Alley in Ridgeland, MS on October 3rd.  Be sure to come by and get your copy along with the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD BubbaWorld Comix Halloween Special that will come out on the same day.  There will also be six other tables of artists and writers there too.

Check out BUBBAWORLD COMIX for updates and comics.

Stephen Butler Bio for Van’s Artist Alley

July 29, 2009

Each week or so I will be posting a bio of an artist appearing at Van’s Artist Alley in Ridgeland, MS on Oct 3rd.  This week is Stephen Butler.

Steven Butler was born, raised, and still lives in the rural wilds of Lucedale, Mississippi.  He is married to a lovely lady named Christy and has 4 children,(Eric-18, Savannah-14, Lily-Ann-10, and Aaron Dale-6).  He has spent pretty much the entirety of his adult life as a self-employed freelance artist, working primarily in the comic book market as a penciler.  He got his start in 1989, and has worked for a number of comic book companies, inluding First Comics where he worked on the title The Badger, Marvel Comics, where he worked on Silver Sable and the Wild Pack, Web Of Spider-Man, Punisher War Journal, etc. Disney Adventures Magazine, where he drew pretty much anything and everything, and Archie Comics, where he has been working on the Sonic The Hedgehog comics since 1998.  He has also worked on several Christian Comics publications including “Powermark” and “Welcome To Holsom”.  Steven is very thankful to have a job like this, because it beats about a thousand other jobs he can think of, and is even more grateful to have such an understanding and supportive wife who never gives him grief over acting like a kid in his 40’s.  Steven just wonders why he wrote this bio in 3rd person— probably because he read too many Incredible Hulk comics in the ’70’s.
