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’ve received about as many negative emails as I have positive ones about this week’s Presidents Day comic.  So I’ll clarify: c’mon, people, of course Lincoln was a great president; it’s just fascinating to examine some of the measures he took to keep the country together.  Surely not every decision he made was exactly right.  I would argue, for example, that he should have beefed up his security detail.

By the way, now that I’ve reviewed the numbers again–it turns out the number of negative emails I’ve received so far this week is exactly the same as the number of positive emails (zero). This is also the same as the number of neutral emails I’ve received this week (zero).
