UJ Guest Comics

Over the years I’ve done exactly 4 guest comics for friend-of-the-comic cartoonist David Wilborn’s Urban Jungle.

David and I started our webcomics at roughly the same time, and I’ve been super pleased to help him out with a guest comic the few-plus-one times I’ve done it. Especially since he’s a real cartoonist with a real comic, and I am/have neither of those things.

My four guest comics:

I was comicking — I swear — but then I didn’t like how the comic was turning out, so I ditched it. But by then I had no time to start over on a new one. So no comic. I’ve been stripped of my title of Comic King after all my fruitless comicking.

Turns out there’s no comic today, sorry about that. However, since we’re all still looking at my stale 80s Juicy Fruit reference, I sought out a video of the commercial in question. Here’s a pretty good presentation of it:

I’m sorry to announce that the the comic that was scheduled to be released today, “Little Big Horn”, has been recalled.  Its release will be delayed a week or so to allow me to root out any unfortunate and/or inadvertent quotes from the Qur’an it may contain.

[Update: The comic was finally released, only one week late.]
