Here it is...



FUNRAMA #2!

From the ashes of devastation caused by The Mutant Punks, comes the second chapter in the epic struggle for Funrama: RACCOON! Rampaging private-school thugs; mentally-unstable super-villainous cousins and a dark brooding secret admirer that vanishes before your eyes: What is a teenage superhero supposed to do? Meet Raccoon. Average student by day, vigilante by night. With the help of her trusty sidekicks, Flora and Freakshow, she must balance the everyday problems of small-town Minnesota as a superhero and still graduate on time. But a monkey-wrench is thrown into her plans when a magical Funrama key is slipped into her locker and a mysterious speedster named Jaguar offers her an ultimatum too big for even her crime-fighting skills. Don't miss this thrilling, action-packed chapter in the ongoing Funrama!

Art and typos by Ryan Kelly; 36 pages; $4

This special comic comes with exclusive pin-up art by Valia Kapadai, John Cei Douglas, Rachel Dukes, Grant Gould and Ross Campbell!


From the author:
"I will be drawing Funrama for the rest of my life. I started these stories and characters when I was 11 years old. I will be drawing this comic when I'm 91 years old. I'm making this comic for myself. If you read it, that's great, that's awesome. All of these stories might be collected or put online eventually for free. But that's not a promise. Maybe , maybe not. I don't know yet, I'm just winging it here. So you don't have to buy this comic if you don't want to. If you buy Funrama #2, you get to read it right away. There are only 400 made. When it is sold out, it's sold out. Listen, I know the extra cost of shipping is bad, it's not totally my fault. Funrama #2 is 36 pages , whereas #1 was only 28 pages. But I'll try to do better next time with the cost controls and the quality control. This is why I commission extra pin-up art for these single issues: To provide a little extra value.

Okay, Have FUN!

April Update: C2E2, FUNRAMA #2 and Stuff!



Up there is the cover art for SAUCER COUNTRY #5. That will be out in July 2012, and that's the end of first arc. Also, SAUCER COUNTRY #2 is out tomorrow, please look for it at your comic shop or download. I hope you like it. Here's a small Preview.



I'm happy to accept this year's Eisner nomination for BEST LIMITED SERIES for THE NEW YORK FIVE. Wow. I'm very thankful for that. I'm so glad to see the book get a little more recognition. Working with Brian is always a treat, I hope we get to make another book for you soon!

Here's an unused cover design:



Don't forget to read Cocotte the weekly webcomic by me and Kat Vapid. Here's this weeks page:



Here's an illustration of an orange stink beetle. Inks and watercolors:



Here's a movie poster I did for the film BEST FRIENDS FOREVER. They are raising money for it on their Kickstarter. Donate and you get the poster. Go check it out, there is only 13 days left.



This weekend, I'll be appearing at the C2E2 convention in Chicago April 13-15. I'll have a table in artist alley. Table B15. I'll be doing sketches for a respectable fee. I can't do any 1-2 hour "commissions" at shows any more. They burn me out. I can do those at home.

AAAAAAND, Hello what do we have here? FUNRAMA #2 is ready for the show!...




This book is a convention only item. You can't buy it in shops. Only 400 made. pin-up gallery included. $4 price tag. After C2E2, I will make what's left available for purchase on this here blog. But the cost may be too much for people, as the shipping is higher this time. I will have some available at MN Spring Con and in local comic shops.
There's a printing error and typo or two, but still worth your money I guess.

Stay tuned next week, when I will post the official solicitation and ordering info.

And in Funrama #2 you will see this preview for FUNRAMA #3, introducing...CACTUS MAN!



I need to update the look of this blog too. It's a little fussy and old. Next time. Have a great weekend. Be good to yourself and others.
