Buzzboy Pencils by the great Mike Wieringo

Buzzboy Pencils by the great Mike Wieringo

Mike Wieringo was a friend to Jamar, Rich, and myself, and he was taken from us waaaay too early a few years ago. As far as I know, Mike was never really demanding when he signed contracts with the big comics companies– but he did have one stipulation: He could create art for small press books if he wanted. And he did: for Scott Kurtz’ PvP comic, for Scott Sava’s Dreamland Chronicles, and luckilly for me– Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule #1.

Kickstarter! Comic Book Diner Graphic Novel Project!

Hey everyone. I’ve been so focused on outside stuff this month, that I just realized I haven’t mentioned this here yet. We of the Comic Book Diner podcast, John Gallagher, Jamar Nicholas, and I are putting together a new all ages graphic novel project! We’re collecting our recent Buzzboy and Roboy Red work, along with Jamar’s Leon: Protector of the Playground , into one slipcased edition! This special edition will feature copies of all three graphic novels! To do this, we’ve decided to go through Kickstarter.com to fund the books via preorders. Kickstarter is a way to get backing (funding) by the people who will ultimately buy our books anyway, and we’re offering all kinds of cool incentives! So, if you’re looking for a great set to help build a library of kid friendly comics for the kids (and adults!) in your life, please check out the link to the right, or click below to see a video of what we’re hoping to accomplish, and all of the details of this exciting new project! Thanks! I’ll be back very soon with more art! Stay tuned!
