Here are a few ‘Guest Comics’, where either I’ve worked with other people’s characters, or they’ve used Crowbar Benson in a strip. I find it fun trying to work with someone else’s style, you always learn something.
This is a comic I did for Rod Salm of ‘Death at Your Door’. Rod is a fellow Manitoban who I met at the Winnipeg Comic Con, and he’s a great guy who does an excellent comic! Of course, he had me at ‘Manitoban’…
You know how some people draw kinda the way you wish you could draw? Faraday the Blob is like that for me… It’s extremely creative visually, and the longer you look at it, the more stuff you find in it. Excellent comic.
Here’s a link the the actual guest comic I did, wherein I tried my best to mimic Alan Ryan’s drawing style.
Woody After Hours is a webcomic about a guy who interviews webcomic characters on his late night cable show (it’s also a lot more than that, but that’s sort of the premise). It’s really well done, with excellent art by Paul Westover and great writing by Ben Carter. I was pretty excited when they offered Crowbar one of the guest slots. Not surprisingly, Crowbar acted like a drunken pig… The mayhem begins here: Crowbar guesting on Woody After Hours.
I met Guy Flannigan and Kip O’Neil at the Winnipeg Comic Con, both great guys! The story behind this comic is that Guy twittered that he had a pinched nerve in his shoulder and might not be able to draw his comic, and naturally I thought that was so funny I had to turn it into a strip…
Addanac City is the colourful comic strip by the unbelievably prolific George Ford. George was in the middle of a move, and needed a few guest strips to tide him over, and I was happy to oblige.
Here are a few strips that have used Crowbar in one form or another
This is part of an ongoing bet, based on the fact that the Leafs ALWAYS lose…. The story starts here.
This from the aforementioned Kip O’Neil and Guy Flannigan… they captured the look, and they draw an excellent Habs logo!
