A Joke NOT in MAD #7

As I developed ideas for "Shazam Funnies" (which appears in MAD #7), I actually had two ideas for a Calvin and Hobbes parody. Here's the one you didn't see--

I typically supply a script and descriptions of my concepts. My other "Billy and Tawny" idea is the one that got chosen. It is more MAD-like. (If you've ever read my Halo and Sprocket stories, you know that sometimes I get a little sweet, as compared to always going for a joke-only punchline.) Here's the finish "Shazam Funnies" that appeared in MAD.

However, my other idea stuck in my mind, so I went ahead and drew it just for kicks!

Here is another piece of my art that appears in MAD #7-- the Batman/Superman gag on the cover of the Potrzebie comic section. I've seen a cropped, square version of this shared around the internet, but honestly I like the bigger, vertical image more.

Anyhoo, MAD #7 is no sale NOW. You should go buy it. I think that cover's pretty funny! :)

Aquaman Funnies from MAD #6

I think I've written before that as I grew up in the boonies of Arkansas (where the school didn't have art classes) the only artwork I saw was that in comic books, Sunday comic strips, and MAD. Well, this month, all three come crashing together in MAD #6 with Aquaman Funnies! I had SO MUCH fun creating this--

It just occurred to me that I also enjoyed artwork on board games and product packaging as a kid. Hmmm, maybe someday I should find a way to parody those too. Hmmm.

Btw, I don't usually share the entirety of my current MAD strips, but it can already be found over at SCREEN RANT.

Be sure to pick up MAD #6! Look for this snazzy cover--!

Superman Dunking a Pirate.

So-- After seeing this old Superman page...

...I wanted to make an animated gif and post it on a site, but needed a link to pull from. So, I'm posting it here. :)

Take that, Pirate!!!!

Hey! I just realized this image is a bit like these Superman gifs I did a several years ago.
