Recently I had the honor of creating a Flatt Bear guest comic strip for creator, P.J. Day. I always enjoy the challenge of working with other cartoonist’s characters, and P.J.’s affable protagonist bear, Duffy is unquestionably fun to work with!
What better place for a bear in the witness protection program to find a safe haven than the Flatt Bear Cafe and Boarding house? P.J. combines a wry sense of humor with a truly original cartoon style to produce this delightful comic strip, which he posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Hear my fun interview with Brandon and Colin Oliver, those two Canadian siblings from Kitchener, Ontario reponsible for unleashing TWXXD on an unsuspecting world. Lots of lively discussion about comics, writing techniques, and poutine! Give it a listen here.
If you don’t know Crispin Wood, that is something you need to rectify immediately. This comic kingpin kicks up the laughs at Small Blue Yonder, a spot on the web where he mines gems of comic hilarity seven days a week. His style is instantly recognizable, there’s an elegance to his line and color that could pass for top illustration. If he should ever collect his work into one volume, I’m sure you’d want it up on your shelf amidst some of the greats like Al Jaffee, Harvey Kurtzman and Don Martin. Crispin is also a professional animator, and his talent with movement shines in this special animated gif he created, inspired by my recent animated strip. Hey Crispin, thanks for this and for being such an inspiration!

Josh Hughes is a cartoonist’s cartoonist. Everything the guy draws just sparkles with fun! Thanks so much Josh for gifting me and my readers with this amazing illustration! I just wonder at your wondrous talent, and really dig your rendition of Zombie Boy and Gorr. Bravo!
Josh has two strips online, Atomic Terrier is a high-flying space adventure filled with aliens, enormous space creatures, space pirates, and a cast of lovable characters that’s a joy to read! It buzzes with unbound creativity, and updates on Mondays and Thursdays.
Josh’s other strip follows the adventures of two robot brothers, The Bot Brothers, and it’s filled with phantasmagoric creatures pulled from the deep well of Josh’s bottomless imagination. Each strip is a delight, funny and spectacularly rendered. It updates on Wednesdays. Don’t miss either of these amazing strips, I guarantee you’ll love them!

I mentioned to Jon Esparza that Boog looked like a ball with legs and a few weeks later this hilarious comic strip arrived in my email box!
