Guest Comic and Vacation

Guest Comic and Vacation

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:

Guest Comic and Vacation

Urban JungleI’m on vacation this week, giving you extra time to fall in love with “Howard’s Manuscript”. Right now you just like it as a friend.

But I haven’t left you completely without something new and DDTish this week. I recently did a guest comic for friend-of-DDT David Wilborn’s Urban Jungle. Go for the greyscale collage comic, and then stay for the full-color animals in neckties.
