Halloween 2014: My Owlman Costume

This is me as the Owlman of Morrison's Earth 2 comic.
I guess I'm doing kind of an Owlman Returns? I look a little paunchy to me. Like Owlman had hung up the feathers for a few years, but then somebody got him drunk and convinced him to put on the costume ONE MORE TIME:

Still, I was really happy with the stylized-feather-cape thing. Side note: I've definitely proven that such a cape would be completely impractical for any kind of acrobatics.

New story "Expecting to Fly" on the Scary Go Round / Bad Machinery web site

The author of the venerable Scary Go Round webcomic and the more recent Bad Machinery is taking a break from Bad Machinery to do a new story. He does this now and then, and I've really enjoyed the results.

Here's the start of the new story:

Allen has developed his fictional town of Tackleford, UK into a host of characters, and this story is a jump backwards in time to see Shelley Winters as a child.

I've grown the whimsy of Allen's art, the snarky comments of his characters, and the way lots always seems to happen between installments, so that in most strips you spend some time figuring out what happened since last time.

Anyhow, I highly recommend it. has become a daily stop for me.
