Love that Perry Bible Fellowship!


Perry Bible Fellowship creator, Nicholas Gurewitch, was cool enough to do this sketch to honor Comix Connection on twenty years of business, so I wanted to thank him and stress to anyone who has not picked up The Trial of Colonel Sweeto to do so now! It's quirky, funny stuff, and the only graphic novel I know of spurned by Hasbro toys and served a cease and desist letter because of the likeness of the cover to Candyland.

And... readers should be pleased to know a second collection of Perry Bible Fellowship strips is on its way this fall! This new book will span the entirety of the strip's print run with bonus features like lost strips, sketches, and a behind-the-scenes interview by Wondermark's David Malki and an introduction by Juno writer, Diablo Cody.



Sorry for the delayed post, gang, but if I hadn't dropped the ball, you would have missed out on the cool guy with the pickle!

I SOLVED IT!

Happiness to Bill/Ned is 20 years of comic doing, and happiness to a trollgre (say that like troll and ogre mixed together) is a good ol' sparkly fart. May excellence prevail is questioning "which is more happy, 20 years of service or a fart?"... and the answer to that is up to you, but Mr. Gurewitch... happiness WILL prevail.
