New Comic

Its not a new iNTERMEZZO or DYSLEXIC COSMIC, this is a stand alone one shot project that is completely different than anything else I have ever done.

Finally someone looks at the Odyssey and asks that burning question that no one has dared to ask.

What if Ulysses was a wiener dog?
Now available at  The shipment of my comics from Ka-Blam is on the way and I will have copies at any conventions I attend, starting with Heroescon.

Wendy is going on a business trip today and won't be home until late tomorrow night.

What I think will happen... I'll get a lot of stuff done and spend the whole time drawing and/or writing.

What probably will happen... I'll sit, watch TV, Facebook, and generally feel anxious about it until she gets back.

Usually I get some things done I plan to do, but not nearly as many as I imagine. 
The comic obsession (and it has been growing because of Heroescon, my apologies to my friends who have to put up with the Heroescon plans, and me showing them everything I am working on for it) gets it focus stolen when Wendy is not at home.  I keep thinking that I need to be doing something but have to focus to get it done.

Heroescon Location

I (along with my friends) will be in a booth space at Heroescon!  That is 10x10 feet of all the cool stuff we can cram inside.

We have booth #320.  This is undoubtedly the best location I have had at Heroescon.  I hope the placement towards the front/ center of the room will get a lot of eyes and hands checking out some Bear Butt Comics!

IN Case You Were Wondering...

I did NOT win the lottery over the weekend.  So Alex Ross will NOT be doing the art for the next issue of iNTERMEZZO.  If that changes I will let you know.

Heroescon is coming!

I will be set up at Heroescon this year (I missed last year because of work, grrr).  I will be there with two artist friends of mine; Stacy and her leather masks who does a lot of shows with me and Jason, a sculpture and steampunk costumer who did the last Heroescon with us.  Both of them have beautiful work. 
We will NOT be along the wall in the small press area.  We have chipped in to get a booth in the main area of the action. I think that will really get us to where we will be noticed and easy to find.

I am working on another new art print for the show.  I have been doing a lot of those lately and they have some very funny stuff.  Be sure to stop by and check them out.

Be sure to stop by and check out my new comics as well.  By showtime I will have 9 issues of iNTERMEZZO, 2 issues of DYSLEXIC COSMIC and a stand alone story called THE JOURNEY OF BRAVE ULYSSES (which is so much different than anything else I have ever done). More on it when the book is back from Ka-Blam, my printer who is fantastic to work with.

Number 2...

So, if this is something that becomes a possibility, would you be interested?

Thought for the day

The nice thing about facebook is that you get to keep up with people you never get to see anymore.  you also get to keep up with the people you only see once or twice a year, and remember why you only see them once or twice a year.

Days off, road trips and comic book stores.

For my day off yesterday I went to Winston Salem, NC with my wife (who was going for business).  While she was in her meeting I went around to every comic book store I could find.

In all I found 5, but one was closed.  I dropped off copies of iNTERMEZZO and DYSLEXIC COSMIC for them to peruse and pass around.  They all were genuinely nice and all seemed interested.  I was quite happy, that is a day well spent.

And of course I bought stuff everywhere I went.  Here is a pic.
Burke street comics was my first stop.  Had a great conversation about Avengers and a con I had done with him earlier, hope to be back there soon.  Bought some old Defenders and Captain America comics.
Ssalefish was next, got an old Adventures into the Unknown comic (love the sort of stuff you can't find anymore, classic sci fi and the like) and The Metal Men (who are just fun characters that don't get used enough.
Went to Infinity Comics, but they were closed.  Darn.  But it looks like they will be having a convention soon, Yay.
In Greensboro Wendy and I went to Parts Unknown which had a lot of cool books that I could go broke on very quickly.  Hardcover art books and the like, very cool stuff, nice store.  Picked up The Death of Captain Marvel, which I have always wanted and an EC Comic reprint (again, cool old stuff).
The last store was ACME comics, that is a nice, big store with a lot of stuff.  Got a Marvel team up book and a Brave and the Bold where Batman and Plastic Man team up to save Christmas (cannot get any better than that).  And the big prize was a Captain Marvel comic ...not Shazam, not the Kree guy, but an obscure book that used the name in between. Since they have characters named Dr. Strange, and Dr. Fate I assume they had no fear of litigation (hiding in a basement perhaps).
So that was my day.  And what a good one it was.

Dyslexic Cosmic 2

A new issue of runaway trains of thought!  This issue features art by Matthew D. Smith and  Joseph T. Rentschler, and the writing of myself and Esko Mason (who also appears in live action in the lead story).  I wrote a bunch of stuff, did the photo work and the cover.

Very Pleased.  Soon to be available on and available at Free Comic Book Day at the Hobby Shop in Wilson NC tomorrow (May 4th)!

I just found out that the bearbuttcomics website is down.  Apparently I missed the timeframe to renew it.  I will get this handled as quickly as I can.  Just a big screw up on my part, not going anywhere.  I'm not giving up on this yet.
