If you’re ever looking for something to do on the days when I don’t update, here are two comics worth checking out:
The Mighty Monkey-Men
My old friend Terry Biddle has been illustrating and drawing comics for a long time, but just recently posted his first online. The Mighty Monkey-Men, a 12-page story, has some really great art and a fun story. He says he’ll post more soon, so if you like it, post him a comment on his site and tell him you want more. I’m sure that’ll speed things along. LINK »
The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
Back when I used to be much more of a LiveJournal user, I would follow the work of E.K. (aka BigBigTruck). She was a great artist who would post some music mixes every once in a while. She frequently posted sketches from a comic she assured everyone she was working on, a road trip story about two guys named TJ and Amal. Comics and music, I could get behind that. After a while I lost track, probably around when I stopped using LJ so much.
Flash forward to earlier this week, when I see that she’s bid on the Project Wonderful advertising space on this here website. I was thrilled and immediately went through all 10 chapters of the comic currently available on her site, and downloaded every music mix I could find therein. The story is still mounting but the artwork is great and she clearly has this all worked out in her head. She has, after all, been writing this story for something like 5 damn years. Go check it out, tell her Ross sent ya. LINK »
