Skeeter & Skunkbeard Comics

I talked in an earlier post about a comic strip my friend and I create for a small newspaper in Montana. It's called Skeeter & Skunkbeard and it's about two clueless teenage outdoorsmen and their escapades in the outdoors, cotillion class, and the daunting realm of girlfriends. I'll post a strip here from time to time (read: when I have no idea what else to post). Enjoy! (click for full size)

Awesome, really humerous! I was just wondering, have you ever written anymore books?

Not where I expected it to go. Very amusing.

Um, yes and no, Adam. I've written lots of short stories, and made many attempts at writing a novel, dating back to 5th grade. But this was the first one I finished (the others were fairly lengthy but never got anywhere). And I have several ideas that I'm writing the outlines for right now.

How VERY funny. :) I have always wondered what it's like for the little guys. I've sent a couple of my Beta fish down the porcelain express, along with a bouquet of flowers in their memory of course. :P

I've written comic strips for my friends and family, but never tried to get anything published. Way to go on that end.

Gary Larson's The Far Side is my favorite, followed by Calvin and Hobbes.

Leah: Ha! I know a few people who had their "Goldy" replaced as young children without their knowledge.

Anonymous: Nope, I did look at a couple of their videos on youtube, though, after I found out about them.

Brandon: We have the same taste in comics, except reversed.
