For the first time since I was in short pants, I am living in a state which observes Daylight Savings Time, the almost-universally derided arbitrary casting-akimbo of Mickey Mouse's inexorably turning arms. Today - for the first time as an adult actually - I "Fell Forward," and later this year I will "Spring Back, Lord Have Mercy." These mnemonics for this really come in handy.

I really should have mentioned this yesterday, but I ended up being too busy. Tonight, between 6pm and 9pm, there's a Friends of the Nib Comics Jam at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, hosted by Jim Woodring with special guest Kim Deitch.

Hey all, as you know I've just recently made a big move cross-country and practically all the way through the alphabet from Arizona to Washington. To help offset some of the costs of the trip, I'm selling some small pieces of original art on eBay right now. I expect them to sell for

This week, my girl and I need to nail down our plans for getting out stuff from Tucson up to Washington. Do any of you have movers you might recommend, or for that matter that you'd not recommend?
It looks like we'll need not just movers for our possessions but also for one of our cars.
Any help is appreciated, thanks gang.

You remember that, some time ago, I got a commission to draw Superman riding Devil Dinosaur?
Same guy commissioned Doctor Doom riding Devil Dinosaur.
I'm gonna be drawing guys riding Devil Dinosaur until I'm old and gray.

Attracting my attention this morning during a break from an all-night marathon drawing session (freelancing1, I'm sorry to say, rather than an unprecedented state of high productivity on my own projects) was this article wherein it's speculated that a trio of ink-wash illustrations of Disney characters recently discovered in Germany may've been the handiwork of one Adolf Hitler. Yes, they think they've discovered Hitler's Disney Channel fan-art.

I had almost forgotten: A week or so back when Steve Gerber passed away, I mentioned that I had done some Howard the Duck drawings. I scanned them in while I was visiting Tucson over the weekend...
Just a standard Howard to start with. I think I could be pretty happy drawing a Howard comic. I like his look...

Arizona-based cartoonist Jon Morris is pleased as punch to announce the debut of Jeremy: The Complete Strip Collection in conjunction with Lulu (lulu.com), the worldâ€™s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
Jeremy: The Complete Strip Collection contains every individual Jeremy comic strip appearance as they were originally published on the web between the years 2000 and 2005. Also included is a sketchbook section, and both full-page and multi-page Jeremy stories from comic book collections such as Gumbo and BOO:Halloween Stories, as well as the mini-comic story Dandelions.
That is lots of stuff, scientists have verified as much.

As you may or may not know, my goodest internets friend Manning Krull and I make it a habit to produce a Halloween Comic every other year, or so, by the name of BOO!:HALLOWEEN STORIES (The most recent iteration resides here in all its sepia-toned glory).
We are BIG fans of Halloween so it's always been our pleasure to collaborate on the spooky-themed anthology. We had big BIG plans to come back this year with an impressive volume of stories, but unfortunately we ended up not having the time to dedicate to it. Which sucks and is terrible, and was making us all sad. We looked like this: :-(
Along those lines, I recently wrapped up The Calamity! Project, a collaborative comic involving dozens of creators providing work based on a common theme. I'm exceedingly pleased with the final result, and I really think everyone involved did a bang-up job. In fact, so much so that I've been eager to start a second collaborative comic project.
