For Illustration Friday 10/5/2012. Decided to go with the slang usage of "book" and who would book more than the Road Runner.

S is for Smiley Bone--AlphaBooks

My piece for the letter "S" at the Alphabooks site. Smiley Bone from Jeff Smith's Bone. Probably my favorite character from one of the greatest comic book series of all time. Have always said the one edition would be one of my desert island books.

R is for Reed Gunther---AlphaBooks

For the AlphaBooks Tumblr page letter "R". Reed Gunther by Shane and Chris Houghton is one of my favorite comics right now. Sadly it went on hiatus after issue 10. Hopefully the brothers will get back to it soon. In the meantime if you haven't read it I highly recommend any of the three trades. It's about Reed and his grizzly bear sidekick Sterling battling mystical monsters in the old west.

P is for Pogo--AlphaBooks

My piece for the letter "P" for AlphaBooks Tumblr. Pogo is still one of the best comic strips ever. Not only was Walt Kelly a brilliant cartoonist, but he was political long before strips like Doonesbury. Pogo also had a really cool stop motion film done based on it that is worth seeing if you can find a copy.
