Looks like things are looking up for Watusi! Maybe the sour taste in his mouth will soon be a thing of the past …

Hey, don’t forget that Free Comic Book Day is coming up this Saturday! Once again Mike Sullivan (“There’s Something Happening in Crawford, KS”) and I have teamed up with a new issue of Free-for-All! to showcase our respective webcomics. I’ll be distributing copies at Lawrence’s Astrokitty Comics & More (15 E. 7th St., Lawrence, KS 66044), where I’ll be doing sketches from 2-5; Mike will be doing the same at Pop Culture Comix (9337 W. 87Th Street, Overland Park, KS, 66212). If you’re out and about, stop in and say hi, get some free comics, and maybe even a sketch. If you can’t make it, stop by www.smearysoapboxpress.com on May 4-5th for a free downloadable version …

Different strokes for different folks, I guess…

Guess what? I’ve finally got something new out in print! Keith O’Brien (of Teebo infamy) just released a pun-filled minicomic starring his katana-wielding detective Samurai Slate: “PUNctual, or, Time & PUNishment.” Puns are hard to write without wearing thin, but Keith pulls it off in these six pun-packed comics featuring four guest artists and a cover by Tom Cherry. Thanks for including me in the fun, Keith!
