Hey hey! The maniacs over at Royal Flush have a new amazing looking issue coming out next month, with a cover story of my favorite current TV show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia! Sadly, I did not have time to make a new Diarrhea Dog comic for this issue, but here's the very first Diarrhea Dog comic strips I did for issues #2 and 3 (long since sold-out).

I'm about to send off 180 sketch cards of Marvel Comics characters to my friends at Discount Comic Book Service, who ran a promo last year for my MODOK comic (buy the comic, get a sketch card). I've been posting scans of the cards as I go - I think this is the last of them.
If I had the energy I'd write some commentary about these cards. Like how I feel guilty at having to only spend a few minutes dashing each one out instead of lovingly laboring over every single one them. How I discovered the depressingly low rates that the criminal trading card companies pay artists to draw sketch cards for them. How I thought I'd be drawing, at most, 100 - 150 cards but ended up having to do over four hundred. Or how deceptively complex the Falcon's costume is, or how much I like drawing Doctor Octopus, Rogue, The Angel and Galactus, and how much I hate drawing Daredevil, Cyclops and Iceman, or how I probably spent more time drawing these giveaway promos than I did actually writing, drawing, coloring and lettering the very comic book they were promoting. And ultimately how I learned I will most likely never, ever, EVER do anything like this ever again. But I'm too tired.
Instead I just leave you with this gem, my favorite card of the entire bunch, a character I don't much care for to be honest, but it came out so nice I could hardly believe a I actually drew it, so I decided to keep it for myself:
