The SHREK post.

According to the mammoth billboards, Hobo covered park benches, and McDonalds that litter Hollywood these days, the 4th and "final" Shrek sequel comes out this weekend. Final - after the Puss in Boots spinoff and Xmas direct to DVD offerings. But then after that, NO MORE.

Oh, who are we kidding? This stuff is going to go on forever after. There are still MORE stories to tell and I'm sure Smash Mouth could use the money. Children's birthday parties don't pay as well as they used to.

Where am I going with this, you ask? Stop talking and I'll get to it. I may have mentioned that in the grand adventure of artistic diversity, I took a freelance job providing the art for a Shrek comic, published by Ape Entertainment, that serves as a sort of "prequel" to this new animated feature.

It was written by Scott SHAAAAAAW! (who created Captain Carrot, writes/draws Simpsons comics and has an unmatched Hawaiian shirt collection). Below are some examples of uncolored pages.

If you have kids that won't stop that gurggleing scream that they are known for while you're trying to do life stuff then might I suggest picking up the Shrek Prequel at your local comic shop, Amazon or Borders. Or if you live in Canada, Wallmart. They'll probably find the paper quality tasty as they stick it in their mouth.

We Won!

The ELDRITCH! beast is finally at peace for now, finding a new home at ZUDA comics. We did it. YOU did it! You screamed the loudest and blew out DC's eardrums. Your support and hard work has been no less then staggering and Aaron and I couldn't be more humbled or proud.

At some point, once the high of this experience settles down, we'll hopefully get to thank each and everyone of you. But for now, know that this is all YOUR doing and ELDRITCH! would not have gotten to where it was without the help of friends, fans and family alike. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you. We love you all!

Aaron and I are still reeling from the hard battle fought, but we've licked our wounds enough to make an appearance at COMICS UNLIMITED for Free Comic Book Day from 11am to 1pm. These are rad cats with a great store. If you're in the Westminster area, stop in and get some free books. Aaron and I will be signing and doing some sketching.

Right now - I'm gonna let the computer repair itself. It looks all melt-y.
