This year’s 12-Hour Comic Thon was an even bigger success than last year! For more info on the Comic Thon check out this link. Here are a few images from the event that was held on Saturday, October 13th (the date was chosen to honor Gaz’s birthday):

The newest addition to the Comics Archives: ˈAk sh ən ˈKämik ˈNəmbər Wən (Action Comic #1): Action Comic #1
Eep! Back by popular demand!
Check out the new category in the above menu bar – Comics! (To download a copy of issue #3 of the Eep comic book, just click on the links below. Beware, though, they are large files, so it may take time to download them).
Interesting historical side note: Eep #3 was completed and printed less than a month before September 11th, 2001. Soon after the attack on our beloved monuments to capitalism (that statement was tainted with sarcasm, though I do think the attack was tragic), ‘Missing’ posters, similar to the one I created for the cover of Eep #3 littered the streets of NYC, in hopes that families and friends would soon be reunited. Due to the attack on the World Trade Center, the Small Press Expo (in Bethesda, MD), the independent comic book convention in which Eep #3 was slated to make its official debut, was canceled. So, independent comic book artists from the NYC area organized to put on an alternate alternative comic expo in Brooklyn called the ‘SPXiles’ which, from what I remember, was a huge success.
Interesting personal side note: And, Gaz, if you’re reading this (correct me if I’m wrong), I believe that convention was the first time we hung out for an extended period of time — it was fun!
For all of you ‘Eep’ fans out there (maybe two or three of you), here’s cover artwork that I did circa 1999 during a phase of my life where I was obsessed with drawing the buildings of San Fransisco. This is pre-computer inclusion into my artwork, so it is all pen & ink and zipatone paper (oh, how I used to love my zipatone paper!). These covers never made it to print. The first image was intended for the front cover of issue #3 and the second image was intended for the back cover.
