Boy have I got some blogging for you

Internet people, sometimes I have a bunch of things I forget to write about over time, and I have to make up a bulleted list to let you know about all of them. Perhaps I will come up with a name for these posts. Let’s say it’s the Dr. McBlogstorm March Edition.

  • We have quite a few shows coming up in April (FOUR CITIES. THREE WEEKS), if you’ll just check our Appearances list on the right there. Notably, Kent will be making a rare appearance at Boston Comic Con, signing books, and doing sketches in Artists Alley. I’ll be at MoCCA in New  York that weekend, so clearly you should see one of us on Saturday, and then drive to see the other on Sunday, and then we’ll both sign  your books.
  • Also in KENT NEWS, he’s doing commissions right now! You can check out his site for info and examples.
  • You might remember back in the fall, I asked for your help with my dog, Commissioner Gordon in the Cutest Dog Competition? Some friends made comics to rally support! Well somehow, I missed one! Here it is by Angela Melick of Wasted Talent! Wasted Talent’s a pretty swell comic.

Enough about Dr. McNinja. On to friends.


Inker for Hire

I’m really sorry to announce that at the end of this story, I’ll be taking over the inking of Dr. McNinja, and Kent Archer will no longer be working with us. I think we both can say that the parting is amicable, and we’ll still remain friends, despite no longer being “coworkers.”
I remember the first time Kent and I teamed up on a comic in college, about six years ago.  I wrote and pencilled an adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood that featured an axe murderer with a high school’s wolf mascot head. I was amazed to see what Kent did to my artwork, transforming and improving it with shadow and texture. And I remember telling him about this “doctor/ninja” thing I would probably work on after we graduated, and would he like to ink it for me?
And then he inked it for me for nearly five years. He’s been terrific to work with, and I’m going to miss him a lot.
So if you happen to be in the position where you’re looking for an inker, I happen to know one who is pretty fantastic, and has some time freed up. Here are some examples of his work. You can check out more of his portfolio here.
Best of luck, Kent.

The Multiverse and You

multleftmultrightFIRST OFF: Folks, Kent is still looking for a new job. Do you or someone you know need an inker? Kent’s skilled, friends. We used to call him “Brush Control” in college. You can take a look at his portfolio here.

MOVING ON: Jon Rosenberg has started up a brand new comic strip called SCENES FROM A MULITIVERSE.

SCENES.

THE MULTIVERSE.

YOU CANNOT GO WRONG.

Jon’s spent over 10 years working his other comic, Goats, and I’m excited to see some freshness get mixed up with his hilarious style and considerable experience. It’s going to make for a terrific comic. He’s already got a few winners right out of the danged gate! CHECK IT.

Dr. McNinja Boy Scout Patches!

McNinja-Patches

This is perhaps one of the coolest things to come out of this webcomic. (At least for me.) The boys of the Potomac Council have chosen to go with a Dr. McNinja theme for their National Jamboree troop.

“But WHYYYY!?” you exclaim, angrily spitting cereal and milk at your monitor.

Because Dr. McNinja’s home, Cumberland, Maryland is in the Potomac Council! (Also, I’m an Eagle Scout from Potomac Council.) And it’s time they got some Jamboree patches that didn’t have a train, or the C&O Canal or like… the entrance to a very long tunnel on it or something.

If you’re interested in getting ahold of any of this set for yourself, (Top is the trader. Middle is the contingent patch. Bottom is the staff patch) you’re going to have to be attending the 2010 Boy Scout National Jamboree. Seek out members of Troop 420, or Jamboree Staff members from the Potomac Council. If you’re lucky, they’ll be willing to trade.
