Drink Me





I'm putting the Zappadan comix into a book and I'm working on a wrap-around image for the cover. There are currently 26 pages of story. I'll add a couple of bonus never before seen pages. Add the front, back, inside front cover, and inside back cover for a total of 32 pages of art, 8.5 x 11 inches.

I'm going to have this one printed up myself, instead of going the Cafepress route. I'll have more details after talking to the printer.

Zappadan Comix 2010 Grand Wazoo Finale























A day late and a dollar short at the end of Zappadan is par for the course here at Zencomix, but that's OK. It's all fun and games until someone loses a pie.

Zappadan Comix: Smokestack Lightning

UPDATE: Captain Beefheart Goes to Heaven










To be continued...Meanwhile, I think it was in The Real Frank Zappa Book where Zappa described Captain Beefheart as "Howling Wolf on Thorazine".
