This comic is soooo late guys. I got sick last week, then saved over the .psd for the inks, and then I had an absolute NIGHTMARE getting an instagram-sized version. I ended up splitting it into four panels, and water-marking each. Frustrating stuff, but I guess that’s the reality of a 4-panel comic.
On the other hand- 4 WHOLE PANELS. That’s like… 6 times the content or something.
Lego Batman is fascinating to me because it really demonstrates the versatility of the character. It’s been said before, but with so many versions of the character, everybody has their definitive Batman.
The recent “Nolan-ized” Batman has resulted in a lot of dark, edgy interpretations of the character. I hope TheLEGO Batman Movie brings some of his goofy aspects to the forefront.
Dinosaurs in the batcave? Bat-shark repellent? The CONDIMENT KING?
So, obviously, first of all, congratulations on making it this far down the page. Apologies as well. When I woke up today, it wasn’t my mission to make a bunch of people look at Donald Trump in a chain-mail bikini. I swear it wasn’t.
And yet, here we are.
No amount of words can undo the fact that you’ve seen this anymore than it can undo the fact that I drew it. So, I hope you got your chucks out of it. Chucks being short-hand for chuckles, as opposed to some sweet Chuck Taylor’s. Although, I’d be stoked if you got some of those too.
Am I allowed to plug Chuck Taylor’s? They don’t pay me or nothin’, I just think they make a fine-looking shoe.
Anyways, catch me at @hotwheeel on Twitter or corndogcomics on Instagram to see new comics first. Thanks for reading!
Back again, with the same art. I fixed it though! That awful text (that haunted my dreams) has been fixed and I decided to include the pencil lines for a bit of shading. Also I included a version without text for anybody interested!
Two woods diverged in a yellow wood, and I took the path with a bunch of university classes, and little time for creative pursuits. This blog, subsequently, acquired that abandoned aesthetic we all know and love.
Things have changed. Without the looming responsibility of learning about junk, I can just make junk instead!
Right? Right. Right?
So it’s official. The blog is back, and hopefully it comes with a slew of new creative content. Slews I say. Stay tuned for (hopefully) BRAND-SPANKING NEW COMICS every week. Failing that, expect rough sketches of whatever I’m working on or perhaps my humorous musings about writin’, drawin’, self-promotin’ and high-fallutin’.
That is my promise to you, the loyal reader. New content and comics probably. Of uncertain quantities at an undisclosed point in the future. Hey, I’m doing my best here.
One small step for mankind, one giant, hurtling leap into the abyss for Corey. Trying to be a humour writer these days is a lot about marketing yourself, especially your online presence. You need to be funny and creative, and do it consistently where it will be seen by countless people. I feel I’ve prepared enough yo enact my new years resolution though: one funny tweet a day. It’s going to be grueling, and I know there will be days where I am simply incapable of 140 humorous characters, but I’m excited to challenge myself in this way, and hopefully get some of my stupid shit heard. Follow me @hotwheeel if you aren’t already. It should be an interesting ride.
Hey, so here’s a thing I did. After hours of banging my head over simple errors, my website has finally been uploaded. The Small World Project was designed to bring the global community a little closer together- and to get me a half decent mark. Still, it’s kind of neat, and my first real foray into web design. Would highly recommend the squarespace platform to those looking to create their own sites.
In conclusion, check out the site, and send in a submission! That would be neat. No pressure or anything though, alright? I know you got a lot of stuff going on.
I’ve got a cool little project that I’m finally close enough to unveiling to the world! Details as they come, but in the meantime, I have a newfound respect for web designers and they way they wield CSS like an obscure and forgotten tongue, full of arcane power and untold secrets. Man, fuck those guys.
