Keeping Funny Books Funny
I haven’t posted in a month or so, but I am still working on this comic. It’s taking me longer than i’d like, but it’s coming out good. I guess I’d rather have a comic take longer than I wanted and be happy with it, then put it out quick and have it suck.

There’s a bit of a spoiler in these two panels.
I really like Big Daddy Bacon in that second panel. I like the way his knees look.

I’ve had an idea for this story for some time, so I sat down and wrote out a few ideas.

It’s Saturday morning and that means cartoons. Here are Alex Schubert’s magnificently misanthropic Blobby Boys in “Max’s Song.” Also be sure to check out Alex’s latest comics on VICE

seriously one of my favorite cartoonist.

I’ll bet you’ve been wondering where the hell I’ve been the last month? Well wonder no more! I was busy putting in time on this awesome comic! Now it’s all ready for you to enjoy!

What the hell is it about? Let me just tease you with this: Big titted Cyclops hooker! What? You still aren’t convinced? Well what if I told you this comic has some seriously cheesy one-liners? And a Jive talking Pimp? And people getting slashed up with a samurai sword? I’ll bet that’s enough to wet your appetite!

It seems Jerkface and his band of troublemakers is up to no good, but this time they may have bitten off more than they can chew. There are about to enter a fight for their very lives and you’re super lucky cause you can get a front row seat for the action!

How can you get one? That’s easy: you should get ahold of me at my email address, itszackempire@gmail.com, and I might just send one your way. Just make sure you tell everyone all about it!

Or if you really wanted to you could go to my store and buy one!

either way, don’t miss out on this baby!

The story continues! Now that BDB has found out that he owes his boss some money he has decided to confront him. But things don’t really go his way as he finds out he can’t yell or punch his way out of things.

The name Cunt Hunt was actually the least offensive name I came up with for the strip club where BDB works, if you can believe it.

It’s funny to look at how short I used to draw BDB’s leg’s. I just did a drawing of him the other day and he has a much more normal body type (for a piece of bacon with arms and legs that is). That must have been something that went away the more I drew him.

BDB mentions smoking, which he also talks about in his first story, but I don’t think it’s really mentioned after that. I did have a lot of my characters smoking at first, but mostly I just forgot about it.

Both Edgar and Alfonze where designed with only one try. I knew that they were mostly throw away characters so I didn’t feel pressure when designing them.

The first panel on page three is set up to look like Lonewolf is taking a piss outside, but really he is getting his dick sucked.

Lonewolf has gone through the most design changes of any character I draw. He doesn’t really look anything like that anymore.

hey hey hey, it’s the next few pages of Ugly people number two. I forgot to post pages last week, but I had a few thing going on that kept me busy.

In these three pages we are introduced to the driving force behind the comic: BDB needs money! I didn’t mean to but I basically came up with a way to put BDB into any number of situations he normally wouldn’t go anywhere near. I just have to write into the story that he s getting paid for something. It was a way of failing up.

Jackie’s breast in panel two are some of the best breasts I’ve ever drawn. To me they really look like two heavy breasts resting because a woman is laying on her side. It’s something kind of perverted, I know, but I’m still proud of it.

The kitchen is covered dirt and grease and you wouldn’t believe how often a kitchen will really look like that.

The joke on the second page might come off a bit confusing. I meant it to read like Alfonze yells out because I said he was going to think about BDB fucking Jackie, but then he corrects himself and says he meant he would think about himself fucking Jackie. I was trying to say that he really was going  picture BDB fucking her, but he didn’t mean to say it. It can also read like he yelled out because he wanted to picture BDB fucking him, which is not what I meant.

Yeah, I used the joke of someone ordering a diet coke after they order nothing but shit. So what?

There are some panels where BDB doesn’t look good but I can see I was starting to form him into the character design he would eventually have.    

Here’s something I did about a month ago. Not really sure what is going on here. It’s just a drawing done for the fun of it, rather than something will be done later on for a comic. I’ve posted a few things lately that have just been drawings because it’s something I’ve been working hard at getting back into my routine. I pretty much only draw when it’s related to comics and I think that it has had more of a negative effect than a positive one. It was fun to be able to just cut loose and draw for the fun it.
My daughter saw this drawing and told me the guy on the left was named Frog Captain. I guess you can’t argue with that.

here’s a page from another story I’m working on. The story is that BDB and Johnny Jawbreaker find a treasure map, then go to the beach. It’s awesome.
