A little pen and inktober


Apparently inktober is a thing, and as a pen and ink guy, I’d be remiss if I didn’t contribute something to the pantheon. Occasionally I’ll like to take a panel of The Punchin’ Bag and do it as a larger scale drawing, throw a wrench into the works as far as style (I mean, it’s still me and it’s still black and white, so it won’t be too jarring). So here’s a bit from the next Punchin’ Bag strip, a slightly more detailed or stylized Tex Arkana.

The Punchin’ Bag 13: Tex Arkana

I had to take a few weeks off to work on prints and actual, factual, printed comic books for Gentleman & Scholar Comics‘ booth at the Portland Comic Expo. It’s surreal.

Now, though, PB is back talking to an old friend of GSC, Tex Arkana. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t go well for The Punchin’ Bag. You’ll get’em next time, Punchy!


The Punchin’ Bag #1/2 Cover


A slightly cleaner version of the Punchin’ Bag #1/2 Bonus Issue Aschcan Spectacular, upcoming for the Portland Comic Expo in October. It may or may not be a cover swipe of Marvel Team-Up #150.

PB #1/2 is a collection of the first 12 one pagers from ThePunchinBag.tumblr.com.

I was going to collect every 24 pages into an issues, but the Expo came up, so we get a throwback to the days of Wizard and their #1/2 issue mail-aways.
