You may have gathered from today’s strip that I’m still a pretty big fan of the Burton-directed Batman movie from ’89. Sure, it had some odd aspects to it, such as Prince music every thirty seconds and Batman killing people, but at least there aren’t any toots in it. At least none you can hear in the final audio.
“Wait a second! This isn’t a cat book!” Well you’ve got me there, but if you’re a fan of CAAATS! then I think I’ve got something new you might like.
Written by Jeff Britton (see, we’re good at rhyming), Loathsome Limericks and Rotten Rhymes is a kid’s book that I illustrated back in 2012/2013 and is now available to the public. Inside you’ll find 50 (give or take) poems that range from creepy, to gross, to awkward to borderline horrific. But don’t get too scared; it’s all in good fun. Unless you don’t have fun. In that case, sorry.
I had a blast working on the project as illustration has always been one of my big passions in addition to comics and I’m happy to finally be able to share it. Below are some sample pages for you to check out; if you’re so inclined, digital copies of the book are available to purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
And if you decide to give it a read, I’d love to hear what you think! Tweet at me, email me, hide under my bed and just as I’m going to sleep, jump out and scream what you thought about it then scurry off into the shadows. But anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for reading!
Ever read a comic in which the main character talks to himself? And then talks to himself a little more? And a little more? And then you say something like, “one more word to himself and I’m throwing this on the burn pile.”
Personally, it’s one of my pet peeves in comics. I’d much rather see a character doing something, anything at all, rather than having to slog through every word passing through his or her head. It’s like Facebook with fewer pictures of coffee.
Anyway, there I go ranting on the internet; I should probably stop. How are you?
