I was at a Memphis Comics Convention this past weekend. There was an Ood.
You guys know I do a newspaper cartoon, right?
It’s called ‘The Buckets’, and if you’d like it in YOUR newspaper, then you should contact said paper and send them HERE to THIS LINK, and they can get all the information from the syndicate about running it.
It’s funny, it’s topical, and best of all, it’s monstrously inexpensive, if my monthly royalty checks are anything to go by. Newspapers listen to their readers- a little. They check through the comment sections under their online articles anyhow. So send ‘em to Universal Syndicate and let ‘em know The Buckets is a comic strip you’d like them to run. Mention advertising rates. That always perks ‘em up.
Or, if you want your local paper to run Hubris? They can contact me here at this site through the ‘contact’ or ‘email’ buttons. And so long as they let me put ‘hubriscomics.com’ on the cartoon for the title? They can run it for free. At least until a syndicate’s willing to sell it to them for me. Then it’s money, pal.
There you go- Seven Buckets a week for a smallish pittance, or Hubris as many times a week as they care to run it until they’ve burned through the archive, for FREE. Newspapers everywhere, rejoice.
Cartoonists are such thugs. Here we are: me, Jeff Keane (Family Circus), and Scott Stantis (Chicago Tribune, Prickly City) wantonly vandalizing a coffee table in a private citizen’s home. (John Hambrock-The Brilliant Mind Of Edison Lee)
The only thing that kept us out of jail, I guess, was that we asked permission first.
The local skate group works hard to set up skate lessons and competitions for the kids, and for that matter, for adults.
If you have the chance, come on around and skate with us!
Here, I made this poster to remind you:
