Regarding the X Days of Xmas Day 4

Regarding the X Days of Xmas Day 4

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:

The X Days of Xmas, Day 4

This one (“Frankincensed“) might very well be my favorite of all X days that compose The X Days of Xmas.

I was torn between a couple different “adoration of the magi” paintings.  It was fortunate I picked this one, because it afforded the kissing/zerbert layer of the comic, an idea that came pretty late in the process.

For more information on zerberts, please consult Bill Cosby.
