What's not to love about cartoons? From Calvin & Hobbes, to the Peanuts, to superhero comics of Superman and Spider-man, back to Looney Tunes. Cartoons have been my life since I was a baby. Until fourth grade, I wanted to be an inventor like Doc Brown, but I had no sense of mechanics or math or anything one would need to actual invent anything. But I drew everything. It was only a matter of time before I fully embraced my drawing. Since then I've created characters like Tick, cartoon T.C. & Jason, and countless others.

It Might Get Loud Comic
As the summer ends, so does the summer movie season. What that means for all of us is that movies that mean something to anyone are not going to be swooping into the theaters for the next two or three months. The fall season tends to bring the drudged up crap from the lower recesses of Hollywood. Not that that necessarily means everything that comes out is crap. It just means that as the fall comes and summer goes, the films will be less recognizable by name, and at best more like, "Oh, I think I saw a commercial for that" from now 'til about two weeks before Thanksgiving when the Holiday movie season begins. This weekend brought us District 9. But I do not bring you a comic about District 9. This week, you get Bandslam and It Might Get Loud. I've supplied the trailers and the links to these offerings since more than most won't have a clue what either of these flicks are. Check out "It Might Get Loud". It looks really great, and if anyone actually gets to see it, send me an email and tell me about it, since (surpringly) no one out here in the LA region seems to have it. As for Bandslam... uh... OH! White boys rapping! Ho-lar-e-US! HA-Ha... >sigh<... ha.
