not dead yet....?

If any of you are still checking this blog out, it may not be dead just yet. I'm in the process of trying to jumpstart my creative life after taking a big break. Moving, a new job, etc. killed all of my time. I'm working on making things happen again.... so keep you eyes pealed.... things may get posted here soon! Thanks!

an update on 'Gregory'....

Good day good readers - For those of you who don't follow my 2 podcasts, my other blog or my Facebook page.... I recently bought a house! It's got nothing inside but the walls, so that means there's a lot of work ahead. Due to a lack free time and my new job starting next week, my time will be limited. That being said, I make no promises if and when an issue will drop. I am going to try my best to keep you updated and to provide new laughs when I can. 'Gregory' isn't dying, just taking an extended break.... until he's moved into his new home. (or until i have an hour free and a good idea to draw out) That's it. That's my update. Keep hope alive, as 'Gregory' WILL return....! And angrier than ever! ENJOY! joel.

issue 132 - Gregory: the really angry robot

My kids have been watching a LOT of 'Ninjago' lately and I admit that it's sunk into my brain. They love it, I think it's harmless and fun for them. It is a very historically inaccurate show, not like MY ninja comics. Either way, the idea for this grew out of that show and I don't regret it one bit. (side note: I bet you're dying to see the back of his ninja gi now, huh?) ENJOY!

issue 131 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Good day, true believers! Sorry for the delay on a new issue, but here it is! With my new job, sort of, starting tomorrow.... I wanted to make sure and get something out to you by around the usual release date. This issue was written by my good friend Cody. He's a regular contributor to my podcast, 'The Sunshine Happy Kpants Hour' and a person I respect for his creative skills. Now, this issue is a bit of a grenade joke, so you may have to sit with it a minute before you get it. I think it's hilarious and I hope you will too! ENJOY!

NOT SAFE FOR WORK! issue 2 - Duck, Duck.... MOOSE!

Here's another issue of 'Duck, Duck.... MOOSE!'. This is the final one and just as NSFW as the last one. Hopefully, I'll have some time to get back to 'Gregory' again, but until then.... ENJOY!

NOT SAFE FOR WORK! issue 1 - Duck, Duck.... MOOSE!

Okay, before you read this spin-off issue thingy.... it's vulgar. I needed a break from the cleanliness of 'Gregory' for a bit, so I went off the deep end. It's simple and obnoxious, but I still find it funny for some reason. I hope I don't loose any regular readers over it, but I figured you'd like to see all angles of my comic creativity. There are only 2 issues of this comic and then we'll finally get back to the regular 'Gregory' good stuff! ENJOY!

issue 4 - Timmy and the Talking Mower

I guess I have to admit, that I'd probably be the 'Timmy' character in this series. I love the concept and perhaps I'll get back to it again someday. Until then, this is the last issue that's been done so far. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to leave some feed back. ENJOY!

issue 3 - Timmy and the Talking Mower

Tommy, all by himself, talking to himself.... for some reason it makes me giggle. I mean, who ever sat around and wondered what their lawn mower was thinking? I guess I'm that guy. If you were a lawn mower, what kind of stuff would be going through your brain on a daily basis? Perhaps this is exactly what you'd be thinking. ENJOY! (only 1 more issue left for next week....)

issue 2 - Timmy and the Talking Mower

Here's issue 2 of 'Timmy and the Talking Mower'. It hasn't really hit its stride just yet, but this was a nice little "filler" issue. No matter how good the content is, I love the artwork style for this comic.... not sure why. I've got 2 more after this and then it's back to regular 'Gregory' issues. Enjoy this and if it goes over okay, I have one other short side project to share, but it's pretty offensive. Until then, ENJOY!

(NSFW!) Issue 1 - Timmy and the Talking Mower

Before you read this, be aware that it's a bit different from my usual 'Gregory' issues. It is a bit "dirty". With my recent schedule demands and problems finding any free time, I figured it was time to release these special issues of a side comic I did. There is another one, that is far more foul, that is in the library.... however, I'm not sure if it will ever surface. Until then, you get a few issues of 'Timmy and the Talking Mower'. I'm not 100% sure where the inspiration for this comic came from, but I think the majority of it was based on the idea of a mower catching its owner.... well, you'll see. Also, it gave me a break from the 'Gregory' style and format and allowed me to try something a little different. I'm actually pretty happy with all the issues that were born from this one single idea. They're simple, silly and I dig the art. I hope you dig them as much as I do. ENJOY!

issue 130 - Gregory: the really angry robot

It's been a hell of a week. Time has been minimal, but I wanted to get you something new to view.... and here it is! It's kind of last minute and a bit simplistic, but it makes me giggle. I hope you can dig it. ENJOY!

Tribute Issue - Wil

Back in the day, I used to get tribute or fan made issues. I don't seem them much anymore, but I saved every one I ever received. This one came from my good friend, Wil. This issue came a bit of a classic, because Wil made Dennis actually talk. That was unheard of previously. Wil did a great job of capturing the comic and it's damn fun to read. Check it out and I hope ya dig it! ENJOY!

issue 129 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Gregory is very often "RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES!" and this an example of that. A direct response to something that I did over the weekend.... I saw 'The Avengers'. It's kind of stuck with me and I thought it would make a perfect follow up to use it in an issue of 'Gregory'. The end result is simple, but funny. (to me) I mean, who doesn't want to be a superhero? ENJOY!

issue 128 - Gregory: the really angry robot

I've decided to continue with the strip for a bit longer, but I'm not 100% about its future. I love it and I hope you all do too. For now, I give you The Smoking Moose.... a favorite of mine. The whole concept of this issue was based around one little play on words. Sometimes, it's just that simple. I hope you dig it. ENJOY!

issue 127 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Here is the next installment of 'Gregory: the really angry robot'! This time, Mark and Steve are back and still trying hard to be Gregory and myself. Too bad they'll never succeed. It's funny none the less and yet another idea that came to me and trumped all of my previously written ideas. I hope you ENJOY it and I'll see you next week!

issue 126 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Sometimes an idea comes and it's only just a word or two. I write it down and the rest comes later. This was one of those times. While coming up with several issues worth of material, the words "Think Tank" came into my head. It felt like somewhere deep down there would be something funny to come out of it later. I think I was right. What do you think? ENJOY!

issue 125 - Gregory: the really angry robot

I have a habit, in case you haven't noticed, of using a similar concept for more than one issue. If the joke seems to be funny one way and wil play itself out in a funny way again.... then I sort of recycle it. Here is a prime example. It was funny to me using myself in the comic, but I thought it was also funny using Spongebob and less familiar. You expect me to act the way I did in issue 124, but perhaps you wouldn't expect the same behaviour from Rob Zombie. Anyway.... ENJOY!

issue 124 - Gregory: the really angry robot

This issue is HOT off the presses! (I mean, I literally just finished it 2 minutes ago.) The concept is not new, but everything else is. I love including Rob Zombie and this is kind of the way I think it would go down.... if I was ever to be in the same room with him. That's it for this week, look for Rob to be back again next week! In the meantime, ENJOY!

Tribute and Tribute Redux - Gregory: the really angry robot

Due to some time constraints this week, I don't have a new issue for you. Sorry.

Instead, I have two versions of an issue created for me by a friend as a "tribute" issue to Gregory. The first issue below is the original version. The second one is the version I re-did. I LOVE the original, but it was requested that I re-master it for release. It's a classic either way and I thought you'd like to see both versions and decide for yourself which is the best one. That's it for this week and I will do my best to have a new issue for you this time next week. ENJOY!

Original version:

Redux version:

issue 123 - Gregory: the really angry robot

The idea for this issue hit me and I couldn't help but chuckle a bit. The whole concept is a bit absurd and that's the way I like it. You may recognize the layout from issue 101, but that's not uncommon for this comic strip now is it? I hope you dig it and I'll be back next week for more fun and stupidity! ENJOY!

issue 122 - Gregory: the really angry robot

It's no secret that I LOVE Rob Zombie and I LOVE Spongebob Squarepants. (no 'K' in his name.) A while back, I introduced both of them into the 'Gregory-verse' and then introduced them to each other. It was bound to happen that they would meet again and here it is! I actually told this joke originally to a friend, but it seemed more appropriate to have Spongebob deliver it, rather than me. Anyway, here's the fruit of that labor. ENJOY!

issue 121 - Gregory: the really angry robot

After writing about 17 new issues in one day, I end up putting this one in front of all them.... one that I wrote while walking down the aisle at the store. 2 days ago. I'm a goofy dude. After I came up with this one, I laughed, but I was the only one laughing. Hopefully you'll laugh at this, I think it's pretty funny. I love word play. ENJOY!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

issue 120 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Well, well, well.... Mark and Steve are back. This time the joke is so simple, it's stupid. And by stupid, I mean this joke is kind of stupid. I just came up with the idea and rolled with it. Is it any good? I'll let you decide. ENJOY! See ya next week!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

issue 119 - Gregory: the really angry robot

This is my favorite of the new issues, so far. I hope you'll like it as much as I do. I'm not 100% sure where the idea came from and how in the heck I came up with the ending, but I love it. More new issues to come.... be prepared. ENJOY!

issue 118 - Gregory: the really angry robot

Soooo, this may have been written write after the Super Bowl.... but I still find this funny. Plus, I have been looking for a reason to use the Gregory TV panels again. This is the first in a series of new issues, by the way. I wrote them in a day and have only drawn out the first two. You can expect the rest in the upcoming weeks. Either way, ENJOY!
