Good afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Digital Comics and all the ships at sea! Today we are taking a look at a really fun book from Wes Locher, Eduardo Jimenez, and Alterna Comics. Step inside, walk this way!

You and me, Babe!

Hey!

Hey!

(I think I’ve already used this particular Def Leppard joke, oh well, sue me for ripping myself off, like John Fogerty)

The Horror Of Loon Lake!

Standard

First things I should mention before I get going on this write up, I know and am friends with several people involved with the making of this book, many of which we have interviewed here on The Gravy Age. For one of the stories involved (Smell A Rat) I wrote some (bad) music inspired by it, the music was used in the background of the Kickstarter video, and my name appears twice in the book, once on the Thank You page, and on a headstone on a pin-up. I’m dead in this book! Morbid? Or funny? It’s a honor, is what it is, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t touched. So now that all that is out of the way, put on your spooky pants, and lets purify ourselves in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, and go fishing at Loon Lake.

Let’s make Chewler happen folks!

Standard

There is a new Kickstarter going on for Chewler a new book from friends of The Gravy Age David M. Brown (author of the creepy Obscura, that I loved) from Fifth Dimension Comics, with art by the brain-melting Shannon Gretzon from Exspastic Comics (that I interviewed here) and letterer Sean Fagan (who… isn’t Donald Fagan from Steely Dan? I didn’t think out this parenthetical ahead of time). What’s not to love about this book? Nazi’s? The internet loves those! I dare you to get into an argument online and see how long it takes for them to get mentioned. Aliens? Look, if you don’t know they run everything. Clones? Everybody wants a clone, but one that’s just dumb enough to go to work for you, because face it, it might rain out there and you don’t want to put on pants, besides, Rockford Files is on. Go check it out though folks, let’s make this a thing.* You can go check out the Kickstarter for Chewler here. And stay tuned for a review of Chewler, coming soon!

 

*Not a thing like we made Limp Bizkit, I was there, you were there, we all just stood by and let it happen. Jesus people…
