George Clinton - Martial Law

My pal Overton Loyd sent me this video today. If you've ever wanted to see me assaulted by a swat team, enjoy 1:01. I'm not sure who's a finer actor, me or Flea as camcorder guy.

INT. THE WHITE HOUSE - INAUGURATION DAY

The small murmuring crowd of Secret Service agents and Joe Biden parts to make way for Barack Obama. He knocks on a closed door.

Knock Knock.

"Dick? It's the President. Unlock the door."

Silence.

"Come on, I know you're in there, Dick. Unlock the door so we can talk."

A muffled voice is heard through the locked door. "You have to call me Mr. Vice-President. It's the law."

"It's not, Dick. I looked it up. Just open the door."

"I'm not leaving."

"It's time."

"I have a gun."

"I've seen how you shoot, Dick. I'm not scared. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here."

Scott Christian Sava's THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES


One of my New Year's resolutions has been to blog more often. Since I've been working on the end of SPECIAL FORCES, and I can't post the pages without ruining the ending for everyone, I figured I'd link to somebody else's cartoons today.

Scott Christian Sava first caught my eye with an innovative "Spider-Man" graphic novel a few years ago. His creative use of 3d computer graphics inspired me, and I felt like I was seeing the future of comic books. His more recent book, The Dreamland Chronicles is even cooler He also has a funny book called "The Lab".

Seeing his books inspired me to use more 3d tools in my own work. I look at his stuff for ideas and techniques I can steal for my own stuff.

Anyway, instead of reading one of my cartoons today, enjoy THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES!

Coming Soon From Harper Collins!


My publisher told me to stop work on my Toussaint biography and make a comic about our new president. We know there are already Obama comics out there, but trust us. This book will be a totally different take on the material. This is just a quick rough sketch. I'm still working out the story.

More on this as it develops.

Read I DIE AT MIDNIGHT for free!

One of my favorite stories, I DIE AT MIDNIGHT was originally published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint in 2000. It's a romantic comedy about a man who has taken poison which will kill him by midnight. Will he find the cure in time?
This was the second book of mine to use 3d graphics, and my first to use art drawn entirely on the computer. Since the technology has advanced considerably in the last nine years since the book's debut, I've redrawn some of the pages for the new version.

Kyle Baker Teams Up with Webcarzz to Drive Original Comic Series

I'm really psyched about this project. I've been wanting to do a virtual world/social networking thing for kids, and this idea knocked me out. Kids, gaming and racing cars!

I love entertaining kids. It's why I got into cartooning. This is going to be a blast.

Here's the official Press release:

Acclaimed Cartoonist to Bring the Webcarzz World to Life


Las Vegas, Kids@Play Summit at CES, January 8, 2009 – Webcarzz, Inc., the company developing the upcoming virtual world targeted towards boys and their affinity for cars and racing, today announced it has entered into a partnership with world-renowned cartoonist Kyle Baker. Baker will develop a comic book series based on the signature Webcarzz world, an isometric playground populated by original cars that kids are creating. The announcement was made in a press conference today as part of the Kids@Play Summit at CES.

“The world of cars and racing – from a kids perspective – is something that I am very interested in exploring,” remarked Baker. “As both a father and an artist, I can appreciate the imaginative design of the Webcarzz world with its bold shapes and colors. It is the perfect setting for a new comic book.”

“Comic books and graphic novels are increasingly used to fuel new brands and intellectual properties in the video game space – and our relationship with Kyle is sure to spark the interest of consumers all around the world,” said Nique Fajors, Executive Vice President, Webcarzz Inc. “Kyle’s talent, combined with his exceptional sense of humor, will no doubt deliver an outstanding comic book that captures the vision and quality of the Webcarzz world and further entertains our consumers.”

An accomplished cartoonist, comic book writer, animator and artist, Baker has authored thirteen graphic novels, including You are Here, Why I Hate Saturn and King David. He was a writer and artist on Disney’s PHINEAS AND FERB, and penned two Plastic Man books for Vertigo/DC Comics and Nat Turner, Cartoonist Volume 1 & 2 and The Bakers collection.

Baker is world recognized and the recipient of eight Eisner Awards, including four wins in the “Best writer/Artist: Humor” category. Baker has also won five Harvey Awards, several Glyph Comics Awards and three awards for his comic series Nat Turner (Best Cover, Best Artist, and Story of the Year); in 2007, he won Best Artist for The Bakers.

In addition to his comic work, Kyle Baker cartoons have been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vibe, Esquire, BusinessWeek, Rolling Stone, The Village Voice and many other magazines, newspapers and books. His work in animation has appeared on MTV and he contributed to the Shrek and Looney Tunes movies.
