Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman

Time for the twelfth installment of Steven Weissman's in-progress pages from "Blue Jay," an epic 32-page story from Chocolate Cheeks, the next collection of the Yikes! gang's adventures. In this week's episode: Oh Elzie Crisler, so cute and yet so bad!

And guess what? You no longer have to be registered and logged in to read our webcomics (though we still encourage you to sign up)! We've decided that we want to share the fun with everyone. Why now? Because starting Monday we'll be bringing you (drum roll)...

...daily (Mon.-Fri.) installments of Rocky, the hilarious smash-hit Swedish comic strip by Martin Kellerman beloved by everyone from Eurocomics über-aficionados like our own Kim Thompson to world-famous rap mega-star 50 Cent (no fooling)!

Meanwhile, if you haven't been able to read "Blue Jay" until now, you can catch up on past installments on Steven's blog. Enjoy!

John Pham has a joint release party for his Sublife Vol. 1 and Ron Regé Jr.'s Against Pain at Family in LA on Sunday October 19 at 7 PM. Music by Ron in the guise of Discombobulated Ventriloquist. Sounds like a must-go to me!

Boody Pulp Coloring
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under productionCraig YoeBoody Rogers 9 Oct 2008 11:33 AM

While going through some of Craig Yoe's comic books here at the office I came across a particularly great example of the old pulp coloring. Why they didn't bother to just build the entirety of the suit's black color with cyan I don't know... (That's a Boody Rogers comic page.)

A Month of Ray Fenwick = $73.85 (Priceless)
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Ray Fenwick 7 Oct 2008 2:47 PM

A smart idea from the mind of Ray: Little books that act like arts grants.

If you make real money for a living I don't know why you wouldn't buy a Coffee Money Zine. You will get bored with your new gadgets.

cz.jpg

From Ray: "The purchase of a CMZ pays for one month's worth of coffee, and allows me to loiter in the coffee shop from 7 - 8:30 a.m. every weekday while I practice writing. CMZ sponsors get 30 days of little drawings, some good, some not, much like my own notebooks. The concept for each one is different.

For the inaugural CMZ, the idea was to just put pencil to paper and draw, without any pre-concieved idea. Which, you know. Not always a huge success, but sometimes, fine."

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
$22.50 - - 15 X single americanos ($1.50 after tax)
$37.50 - - 15 X double americanos ($2.50 after tax)
$3.85 - - - Price of single notebook
