Page one of Cheese, Dave McKenna and Miss’ fantasy graphic novel completed! See the finished product in 2037.
We’ll continue the D&D story Miss, Dave and I started at the Jam, next month. In the meantime, here’s some over-anxious fan art. Yes, I’m doing fan art of my own comic.

Great use of the Internet
My father recently moved out of my boyhood home in southern New Jersey and came across quite the treasure trove of early Cheese art in a box in the basement. Among the now priceless works was this ‘ad’ for my fathers advertising agency, circa 1985 (age 13-14) or so. I used to set up a table at the local comic convention in my home town and draw ninja turtles for $2 a pop. Amazingly, I actually sold a few. I did con sketches up through high school, eventually getting pretty good at drawing a select handful of my favorite characters, Captain Britain, Blue Devil, Ted Kord Blue Beetle, Spider-Man and TMNT. Seeing this particular image motivated me to draw a ninja turtle in my sketchbook (fig. 2). I think I might be able to ask $3 for it, MOVIN ON UP!
So a few weeks back I started playing Dungeons & Dragons with some folks including Ho12 regulars Dave McKenna, Miss Lasko-Gross with Ho12#4 alum Chris Radtke as DM. This is my character, D’Taco, he’s a Tiefling Warlock sex machine to all the chicks. Our first week he got into some trouble with an Orc and was saved by his pseudodragon, PseudoFizzy (pictured above). We’re meeting every few weeks, I’ll post an image or two from each of our adventures.
Biz (in progress) pin up for Hip Hop Family Tree 3
