Arsenic Lullaby - Short Comics Tex Buckaroo vs Giant eyeball

in comics •  2 months ago

Was about to put up the Krampus story when I noticed a cryptic email from @veryspider asking me not to, using terminology I only half way understand (hey...gimmie a break, I've only been on here for...oh...three months...I should probably understand what this stuff means by now). So...uhm...here's a bunch of stuff, while I figure out what it meant.

Tex Buckaroo is a character I like and like to draw, but is pretty similar to a lot of other A.L. characters as far as his disposition and what the jokes derive from- a beligerant lack of understanding of the world as it is and lack of giving a fuck about figuring it out . Hmmm...sounds like someone else you know, eh? He's a ghost of an old T.V. cowboy from the 40's/50's. Think of the worst person on Mad Men...and and 10% more gregariousness (that might not be a word...just go with it)

This cover for a book he was in just would not turn out as good as the concept. It was supposed to look like you are seeing his reflection in a giant eyeball...and I guess it does, just..I dunno...in my head it was supposed to be better. I guess it turned out alright, it got nominated for an Eisner award for "Best humor publication". I got beat by some reprinted collection of some comic strips I never heard of from 60years ago...which technically should not have even been in the same category because it was reprinted work. But ...whatever...I'm not interested in awards, I have less integrity than that. All I care about is the money!

Also, the tags list on Steemit is generated by code...which puts tags up there based on ONLY popularity of use. You will notice that as of yet #comics does not exist there. So what we have been doing the past week or so is using the hashtag #comics every single time we comment on my posts ( or any other posts if you like). It doesn't matter if it doesn't make sense to use it...the code doesn't know the difference!

later...

Love your style and #comics! Still need to read all the #comics...but will do read the rest of the #comics soon!

Here is my #comics tag:
#comics

And did I say #comics?

·

you did say #comics...as I recall it was when you mentioned your appreciation for my #comics Thanks! Glad you liked the #comics !

·
·

You (and your #comics) are very welcome! Ha I knew I said #comics somewhere. Trying to get another sentence with #comics in it but I'm a bit out of inspiration so I can't really use the #comics tag. So I guess I just have to say #comics to get the #comics tag in my reply.

Anyway I really hope the #comics tag gets more popular and will try next time to use more #comics in my sentences.

Good luck with the #comics tag!

Ah man, I hadn’t seen that Tex story before. Absolutely some fresh laughter for me. You sir, make some funny #comics!

·

why thank you, I think Tex has only appeared twice in A.L. #comics . If you want, I can put the other one up later this week #comics

Very cool #comics! I loved all of them! 😂

·

ThankS a ton! ....By the way...every time you forget to use #comics on my post a kitten dies from gonorrhea. Y'know...just and FYI , but do as you wish!
