Mauro & I made a comic for Cracked today

Mauro's so awesome.

I’m trying to break out of my slow, skull-crushing, overwrought column work, and I miss writing comics, so I slung one stone at two birds and dashed off this script questioning Battleship’s existence. And Mauro, being Mauro, drew it lickety-split. He also did the colors on this one.

Coming Soon to a Theater Near You (Unfortunately)

I dunno, it made me laugh. Hopefully you, too.

And now, to polish off the next column — “Six Things Girls Should Know about Nice Guys.”




Don’t forget:

DOSE #3 release party tonight. Dove Parlour. 7 p.m.

This issue is an extremely short-run print, and features contributions from Molly Crabapple, John Leavitt, Josh Elder, Brian Warmoth, Nathan Alderman, Chris G, and art from J Sjostrom, Arif Rakhman, and Mauro Vargas (of Hannibal fame). Why not order one?

Standard Comic
Black & White
Page Count: 48
Written and Illustrated by Brendan McGinley, Molly Crabapple, John Leavitt, Josh Elder, Brian Warmoth, Christopher S. Wilson, Mauro Vargas, J Sjostrom
In the third issue, Li’l Sammy Swift goes to prison for murder, a sperm whale finds daily life discomforting, and John Wilkes Booth makes a great action hero if you’re willing to overlook history. We invert the boring Fantastic Four movies with “Doom/Tuck,” and reveal Shakespeare’s role in the murder of Christopher Marlowe. Also, red-hot indie stars Molly Crabapple and John Leavitt stop by with a four-pager.
Comics’ greatest b&w humor anthology! (Well, greatest CURRENT…actually, the only one that we know of. If there’s another, it’s probably better than this.)
