074 – Warbow

Here’s a thing that passed me by in my childhood, The Saga of Crystar. There was a comic and a toyline, but as far as the Shonborn household was concerned, it never happened. So, Jason Young Fortnight ends with Warbow, a supporting character from the Crystar mythos. It was not easy to find anything on …

073 – Mr. Monster

Back to the things I’ve not read. Though this one makes no sense, because Mr. Monster seems right up my alley. While researching this character for Jason Young Fortnight, I discovered that Mr. Monster was actually a golden-age public domain Canadian comic character. Michael T. Gilbert took the character and made it his own. Anyhoo, …

072 – Roachmill

Hey! I’ve read this one! Sorta. Jason Young Fortnight gave me the original run of the Roachmill series. I thought he was “giving” giving them to me, not to borrow. I was wrong. Because, as all books that I believe I own, it gets set in a pile and remains unread. I did read the …

071 – Batman

Never read this goddman book either. But if Jason Young Fortnight insists on these obscure bullshit nobodies, The Carpal Tunnel abides. I was trying to experiment with something minimalistic and simple looking. Guess what? Minimalistic and simple is very difficult and frustrating.

070 – Cerebus

Jason Young Fortnight does not support misogyny.

069 – Black Vulcan

069 – Black Vulcan

Hey, I’ve never read a Black Vulcan comic either! Jesus Christ, Jason Young Fortnight! Oh wait… Black Vulcan doesn’t exist in comics. He was a stand-in for Black Lightning on the various cartoons called the Super Friends. He was, like every other character on the Super Friends, bland and generic. However, I personally prefer to …

068 – Carrie McNinch

Jason Young Fortnight’s a big fan of autobiographical mini-comics. One of those is a diary comic called You Don’t Get There From Here. Guess what? I’ve never read it. But I do not particularly enjoy autobio minicomics not called Veggie Dog Saturn. But that’s just me. Anyhoo, he asked me to draw the subject of …

067 – Concrete

Jason, of Jason Young Fortnight fame, forced me to read a Concrete comic a few years ago, and I loved it. I then went out and bought a couple of the trades. Haven’t read ’em! I’m awful. I loved drawing this, though. This is also the second time Jason has requested Concrete from me. I’m …

066 – Pig Iron

Jason Young Fortnight should be a band name, like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Remember when that insisted on being something? Oh, the 90s. I love you, I miss you, but you were awful. Anyhoo. Pig Iron is from Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew. I believe he is in the aforementioned Crew of Zoo. As …

065 – G.I. Robot

It’s a Fortnight of Jason Young proportions. And here we have G.I. Robot, and I had never seen or heard of this character before drawing it. Even after reading up on him while doing this sketch, I still don’t get it. So there we go. G.I. Robot, everybody.
