Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman

Time for the new 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: getting to the bottom of things by climbing to the top. (Note: last week's page is also still up, since we had to update the page yesterday for scheduling reasons.)

Rocky by Martin Kellerman

This is also a great time to catch up on our current 5-day chunk of Martin Kellerman's Rocky, updated Monday-Friday!

As a reminder, registration is no longer required to read our webcomics; they're free for all!

PRISON PIT: The Graphic Novel by Johnny Ryan

World Peace Hulk
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 12 Nov 2008 7:50 PM

James Kochalka couldn't have done it better. Hard to believe this gentle soul would be waging war against the world a mere 28 years later. From Defenders #75 (1979) by Ed Hannigan, Herb Trimpe and Mike Esposito. That Greenpeace address is about a mere mile and a half  from our office; I don't think it's still there. Oh, and NEVER accuse the Defenders of being intolerant.

The Tijuana Bibles: America's Forgotten Comic Strips Vol. 9

Now available on Fantagraphics.com: the popular long-running series from Eros Comix, The Tijuana Bibles: America's Forgotten Comic Strips, including the brand-new Volume 9 (shown above) and past volumes #2 and 5-8! (Click here to browse the full list.) This series, edited by Michael Dowers, collects the hard-to-find comics booklets produced mainly in the 1930s that feature the most popular comic strip characters and media personalities of the day in sexually-explicit and outrageously satirical situations. These taboo-busting pamphlets were the original "underground" comix, and this reprint series is of interest to nostalgia buffs, connoisseurs of vintage erotica, and anyone else who likes fun, dirty stories. Each volume features snappy original cover art by Pat Moriarity.
