Cartoonist Celebrates His Comic Strip’s First Birthday!

Cartoonist Denver Brubaker’s webcomic, Tales of a Checkered Man, is celebrating its first birthday!  Brubaker launched the comic on April 6th of 2010. Tales of a Checkered Man is the story of an average hero who turns to a life of crime-fighting, despite his bad luck and acrophobia. Think “Charlie Brown as a masked vigilante,” Brubaker says. Brubaker, 35, is the creator, writer and artist behind this twice weekly webcomic. “The reaction to the comic has far exceeded my expectations,” the artist notes, “I’m so happy to have reached this milestone with a respectably growing readership in tow.”  Looking forward, Brubaker is content with continuing writing and drawing the misadventures of his costumed hero.  “I love this character.  He’s been a part of my life for years and years, and it’s exciting to be able to share him with everyone and to have people tell me how much they love him back,” the cartoonist says, “It’s a wonderful feeling.”  Brubaker is also now in the stages of planning a book which will collect the entire first year of comic strips.

Denver Brubaker’s webcomic Tales of a Checkered Man can be found at: www.thecheckeredman.com

Hi there!
I draw a webcomic www.afineexample.com and I like it.  You might like it too!  It’s about a pirate and greed and jokes and the economy.  I’ve been on and off working on it for the past 4 years but I recently did a big redesign and I think it’s finally fit for mass consumption.  I’d love a review or a bump or something, but if not hey no hard feelings everybody’s busy these days.  Thanks for doing what you do, and thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
cheers
Brian James

Jump leads new colourist

[10:18:03 PM] Ben Paddon: Not bad! Jump Leads just came out of hiatus, we have a new colourist working on the comic now, and we’re working on getting our books out again.
[10:19:16 PM] Ben Paddon: So, y’know. Exciting!

[10:22:17 PM] Ben Paddon: Our colourist has worked on a number of projects, including IDW comics such as Transformers, GI Joe and Doctor Who.
[10:22:19 PM] Ben Paddon: Which is awesome.

Established colourist Kris Carter will be joining the team. You might recognize the name – he wrote and provided the art for “Waterworld“, our eighth issue. But even if you haven’t read that you might recognise his work from comics such as Transformers: Nefarious, Doctor Who: The Forgotten, Torchwood: Rift War, and Red Dwarf: Songs In The Key Of Files. Clearly, Kris a man with some solid scifi comic credentials.

Mike Nortons Battle Pug
Battlepug: The Web Comic was born out of desperate scramble to appease iFanboy. They contacted Mike to create a signature t-shirt for a new line of merch. However, Mike had been working exclusively with DC Comics for 4 years and had no original properties that he could reveal to the world yet. He drew the image you see above and had Allen color it. And lo, a BATTLEPUG was born!

NEW DELHI — India’s first comic book convention opens in the capital New Delhi on Saturday, with organisers expecting thousands of fans to prove the art form is thriving in the Internet age.
Comic Con India will introduce the country’s booming youth market to new graphic characters including a warrior blessed by the sun god and a half-otter half-human superhero.
Jatin Varma, organiser of the two-day convention, told AFP that the effects of India’s recent economic dynamism have spread from big business into the alternative worlds of youth culture and underground art.

She’s worked in children’s books with Mercer Mayer, in comics on Batman: Gotham County Line with Scott Hampton, collaborated with Mur Lafferty on Beyond the Storm: Shadows of the Big Easy, and otherwise has self-published a handful of small comic book projects. She currently teaches cool computer stuff to keep the bills paid as she prepares to launch the first installation of her potentially epic-sized fully painted comic book series, BloodDreams. She’s also a certified dabbler in video editing.

This was created in dedication to the photographer Vivian Maier, a street photographer from the 1950s – 1990s. Vivian’s work was discovered at an auction here in Chicago where she resided most of her life. Her discovered work includes over 100,000 mostly medium format negatives, thousands of prints, and countless undeveloped rolls of film.
