A True Westword Romance

Last month I submitted this comic to Westword's (Denver's Alt Weekly Newspaper) annual comics issue, but sadly it was not selected. I was reminded  that Panel 5 took place exactly 16 years ago today, so I thought I'd share it. (Click image for full size)

Brother, Can You Spare A Dime

Another early experimental piece. Dabbled with some coloring, texturing and hand lettering. The joke is an old one and was mainly just to provide some structure for the art and some things I wanted to try. From the Brain Teaser Comics Archive, April 2013.

Wash You Doin'? & Everybody Complains About the Weather

NOTE: The following strips and comments were originally posted at Brain Teaser Comics in Feruary 2013, but I moved them here as they fit the Blank Tape aesthetic more than Brain Teaser as I was re-designing that site.

I've been very busy recently, hence, no recent comics.

I moved in mid-January, and then my wife had surgery. While waiting for her to recover I had lots of down time at the hospital. I discovered @veryshortstory on Twitter. @veryshortstory tells complete tales in a single tweet written by Sean Hill. Find out more at

I read a few of these and thought they'd make fun comics, so I adapted a couple in my free time, while Mrs. Disaster slept. Here is the first, a tragic tale of a mother and her laundry.

The second story by @veryshortstory aka Sean Hill, that I adapted into comic form.

Shoulda Seen It Comin'

Working just with black and white in marker here. No Photoshop cleanup. Trying to use more blacks for more dynamic contrasted layouts. (Reposting some older Brain Teaser Comics strips that didn't really fit the feel of that strip when I did my relaunch)
