More Hamtastic Pinups!

Okay, so I lied, it's one pinup....but one's in color and one's black and white!

The original inks by Jordan Dalton

and now in brilliant color! Thanks Jordan!

As we've said, we LOOOOVE pinups, so keep em coming!

A Call to Action!

Dear faithful readers,

Ham & Eggs need your help. We'll be 10 pages into the story come tomorrow, and we've got a healthy reader base... but we need more. The only real way that online comics gain readers is through word of mouth -- or in this case, word of web.

So here's what we're asking. While you're out there surfing the 'nets, why not drop the name and a link to the comic in some of the message boards you frequent? A few kind words here and there and people will start catching on.

I think we've got a special comic working here. Lauren's art is second to none, and I've never had more fun writing something in my life. Sure, it's a little twisted, but that's what gives it its charm!

So join the HnE Army and help spread the word! Oh, and feel free to use the logo if you'd like.

A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' for NYC Con!

For those who don't already know, Lauren and I will be hitting New York City Con April 18th thru the 20th. We don't have a table, but we'll be bouncing around a few friends' tables throughout the course of the weekend. And one of the things we'll be doing is handing out nice little 8 page "Convention Exclusive" previews of The Slightly Askew Adventures of Inspector Ham & Eggs.

They're going to be full color mini-comic style previews. I've put a few of them together already, and I they look awesome!

Also, we've come up with a nice little Captions & logo to through on the previews, the backs of the t-shirts, and hopefully on more schwag we'll be passing out!

Pretty damn cool, right?

Oh, and don't forget to check out Page 7 which was posted this morning!

Would You Take Me Home?

So I'm big into marketing and merchandise, more to the point I'm a sucker for marketing and merchandise! This being the case it's fun for me to develop ideas and designs for merch from Ham and Eggs! Eventually we will be selling t-shirts, that's for certain. But while Ham and Eggs are still in the beginning stages of it's release and public awareness, Stephen and I wanted to toss some designs around and see the reaction. So what do you think, folks? Would you take them home?

"Ham It Up"
Ham in Cream on Brown or Pink on Brown?
Wearer's left hand side towards the bottom of the shirt.

"Deviled Eggs"
Black on Cardinal Red
Most likely centered on the shirt or on the lower right hand side.

"Sneaking Strudel"
Strudel in Cream on Black, Cream on Green, or White on Maroon?
He'd be 'crawling' over the wearer's left shoulder on the shirt.

The Big Reveal...

So, now Page 4 is posted. And even though we can all agree that Lauren's figures are all adorable, this is by no means a children's story. Not by a long shot.

This is the page I've been DYING to show off. Lauren's gruesomely gorgeous artwork just shines on this page. It's horrific and adorable and compelling all at the same time. I just love it.

It's the page that I'm really hoping is going to hook people into coming back twice a week to read what the hell we're going to do next. And believe me, we've got quite a lot planned!

But don't go thinking Ham 'n Eggs is a one trick pony. We're not about being shocking for shock's sake... Everything we do, no matter how outrageous or off the wall, is for a reason.

So keep checking back. The goodness is only just beginning.

Back from S.P.A.C.E.

Phew... what a weekend! Lauren and I attended S.P.A.C.E. (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) in Columbus, OH. A great time was had by all! Chuck, from over at was there, and he took a bunch of pictures for his coverage of the Con. Here's Lauren (and part of me to the left) showing off 2 original pages from Ham 'n Eggs:

Speaking of Ham 'n Eggs, you no longer have to wait a full week for a new page. (not that you ever DID have to wait a full week for a new page...) That's right, now you can get a double helping of Ham 'n Eggs each week! A new page will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday! In fact, Page 3 was just posted today! What are you waiting for? Get over there!
