AN EXPLOSIVE END TO THE CRAZYVERSARY THANKS TO SHANNON!!!

And so it ends.  The CRAZYVERSARY 2015 has concluded.  I know, it's a tough time, but we'll come back next year!  It may be a little different, but I promise it'll come back.  And since it's over for now, we may as well end it with a "Bang," so let's see what Shannon O'Brien has unleashed...

Wow, two fart jokes in two days.  Have we gone low brow or what?  Still, who doesn't enjoy a good laugh at a hilarious fart?  Simple rule of comedy: FARTS ARE FUNNY!!!

Shannon O'Brien is a very dear friend of mine.  I met her on Twitter after missing her at WonderCon last year.  She'd come to my table while I was on my lunch break and really went out of her way to contact me on Twitter and make friends afterward.  Ever since we've been best pals!  Her comic, The Adventures Of Wendy And Lucy, is a funny tale about two silly dogs who get into all sorts of mischief and adventures.  What I like most about Shannon is that she's always positive and optimistic.  Her optimism is infectious and makes all who meet her strive to bring more smiles.  Her storybook art style is a real eye-pleaser and I love reading the comic exploits of her goofy dogs!  Thanks again Shannon.  You really gassed, er, CLASSED up Mike And Mindy!

Well, that's all for the CRAZYVERSARY folks.  I wanna thank all the amazing artists for taking the time to give Mike and Mindy one last send off.  I love and respect each of you like you were my family.  The web comic community is a truly amazing one and unlike any other.  The support and help we offer each other is inspiring and I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful genre.

Next week marks another special event.  The first Bubble Fox book was recently released and to celebrate, I'll be presenting The Spirit Of Bubble Fox, a presentation of 12 comics, IN COLOR, that have been deemed the best from Bubble's first year on the web.  It should be a lot of fun, so be sure to come back next week and check it out.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

HEADS IN THE CLOUDS WITH PETER, MIKE AND MINDY!!!

It's Thursday folks and we only got two more to go for the 2015 CRAZYVERSARY!  I know, now that Mike And Mindy is over, these will likely be the last guest comics ever, but you know what?  If people still wanna do them then I'm more than happy to take them, so we'll see how it goes next year!  Until then, enjoy this "Explosive" comic from Peter Rasmussen...

Back alley farts.  Almost as dangerous as stalled elevator farts!  It's often said that helium-based gags were the bread and butter of the Mike And Mindy series, and indeed they were for the most part.  But fart jokes played a HUGE role too over the years and were very popular with readers for some reason.  And it should also be noted that Mike and Mindy AREN'T related, but Peter's son declared that for story purposes, they are!  I can't argue with a six-year-old's logic.  It's very sound!

Peter Rasmussen is a Danish-born artist living in England doing the hilarious web comic Badly Doodled, a slice of life tale about his daily adventures in fatherhood.  It's a very sweet comic that often echoes real life for any who've raised kids.  Peter's son is a funny little guy who often critiques my comics, usually voicing his displeasure for my LACK of gross out gags!  I can't draw them every strip, but I try to work them in when I can!  Hopefully this strip picks up some of that slack.  Thanks again Peter!  This strip was a real -Wait for it- GAS!!!

One…  One more to go…  Shannon O'Brien's stopping by and promised me some "Explosive" laughs, so we'll see if she can deliver!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all tomorrow!

MIKE AND MINDY GET CUTE WITH MEGAN!!!

HUMP DAY IS HERE!!!  Is everybody spunky and is everybody's oatmeal lumpy?  What's that?  It's "Hump" Day not "Humpty" Day?  Oh.  My bad!  Anyway, we got a very cute offering from Megan McKay here, so enjoy...

BWAAAAW!!! Don't ya just wanna eat them up?!  They look so darn adorable with those giant eyes!  Almost like Chibi-style drawings!  I swear it's puppies and kittens rolled into one here!

Megan McKay is the genius behind the hilarious comic Doodle For Food, which falls into the same category as The Far Side.  It's silly, irreverent, and totally off the wall.  So naturally, it's a comic that's right up my alley!  I love what she's done with my "Kids" here.  The large pupils, chubby limbs and lack of noses just made me go all doughy-eyed!  Thanks again Megan!  If your comic's title is true, you'll likely be changing it to I Got Plenty Of Food Now, Thank You! because it's gonna be big!

Well, that's all for now, but don't hold your breath!  We'll be back tomorrow with a guest toon from Peter Rasmussen that will definitely leave your head in the "Clouds!"  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all tomorrow!

STICKIN' AROUND WITH PJ AND PALS!!!

Hello!  It's Tuesday!  And the great PJ Day has traveled to the CRAZYVERSE with a few notable pals in order to bring more fun and cheer to the CRAZYVERSARY!  Warning though, you may find it hard to leave after reading this one...

Mike and Mindy never like it when friends have to go home.  Unfortunately, it's antics like this that often discourage repeat visits after their company DOES get free!  Hopefully, Gorr (Mark Stokes' Zombie Boy), Picpak (Kim Belding's Picpak Dog) and Suzanne (David Hurley's Don't Pick The Flowers) won't be scared away after this playdate!

PJ Day, creator of the hilarious comic Flatt Bear, is no stranger to these parts, having done a guest comic for me last year.  I too have had the honor of drawing his wonderful characters in guest comic form and highly recommend his tale of a goofy bear in the Witness Protection Program living with a single mother and her rowdy daughter to anyone in need of a laugh or two!  I gotta say, I love how he added Bubble Fox and a few other web comic pals to that sticky mess that Mike and Mindy created!  Thanks again PJ!  The more the merrier I always say!

Well, it's about to be the midway point, but don't be sad!  We got a super cute bit from Megan McKay coming tomorrow, so I hope you'll stick around to see it!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all tomorrow!

MIKE VS. MINDY… BATTLE OF THE CENTURY PRESENTED BY CANDY!!!

Welcome back!  It's the final week of the CRAZYVERSARY, but there's no reason to be sad.  We still got five wonderful guest comics for your viewing pleasure, starting with this epic from the great Candy Briones!  Enjoy...

Mike and mindy have always had a volatile relationship for sure.  But when it comes to cake, NEVER stand in their way!  As you can see, their helium hijinks are mere child's play compared to their unrelenting desire for sweets!

Candy Briones is the delightful cartoonist behind the hilarious comic Taco El Gato, the tale of a slacker cat who gains super powers after eating magical tacos.  She's also a very funny and kind person and one of the few pals on Twitter I've gotten the honor to meet in person.  When I got this toon I geeked out pretty hard.  I was a huge Dragonball Z fan as a teen, so getting a Mike And Mindy guest comic like this was certainly a thrill!  Thanks again Candy!  You're as sweet as your namesake and I hope to see ya at WonderCon in April!

Well folks, that's all for now.  We'll be back tomorrow with a toon from PJ Day that I just know will "Stick" with all of you!  Until then, take care and I'll see y'all tomorrow!

MIKE, MINDY AND VAS… HELIUM SAVIORS!!!

Week Three of the 2015 CRAZYVERSARY has come to an end.  I know, I know, we're all sad, but that just means we'll have to make the finale next week REALLY count!  But for this party to work, we'll need some balloons!  What's that you say?  Helium's running out?  Never fear!  Vas Littlecrow has found an ample supply!  Watch and learn…

Sheesh Mike!  You were just in space even!  Didn't you notice the abundant supply of helium hanging around the sun?  Why do you think aliens have such squeaky voices?

Vas Littlecrow is quite the busy bee in the world of web comics having really seen and done it all.  Her comic, Rasputin Catamite, is a graphic tale (Quite literally!  Adults only!) with amazing artwork and characterization.  She also hosts the weekly Web Comic Chat on Twitter, a way to help us web cartoonists connect and share ideas and stories about our processes.  It's always a fun time to be had, so we all owe Vas a debt of gratitude for helping us connect!  I owe her a bigger debt for this amazing toon she sent me.  I love seeing Mike and Mindy in a more serious style.  The fact that they're willing to search the galaxy to help keep their favorite gag alive speaks volumes for their character!  Thanks again Vas!  You are a true beacon in the Web Comic Sea.

And so ends Week Three!  Thanks again to Tim Green, Scott Warren, Eline W., Dave Craig and Vas Littlecrow for all the awesome comics you guys sent me this week!  I'm honored and blessed to have such amazing friends!  The CRAZYVERSARY ends next week, but not before we get five more awesome comics, starting with a "Powerful" strip from Candy Briones!  Until then, take care, and I'll catch y'all next time!

CHANGE IS GOOD, ESPECIALLY WHEN DAVE EXPLAINS IT!!!

Another week is almost up, but not before we unveil a couple more comics for your viewing pleasure!  Dave Craig is here and man did he deliver something special!  Enjoy...

That's right folks!  Mike and Mindy were merely Bubble and Willow the whole time!  It's hard for foxes to get work, but luckily that is finally changing.  And because of that, Bubble and Willow didn't have to hide anymore, so now they can be there foxy selves!

Dave Craig is the genius behind the hilarious (And sometimes adult, so beware) Horovitz Comics.  His comic is literally the second coming of the legendary The Far Side in terms of its irreverent and outrageous humor!  He's also a huge Bubble Fox fan and a pretty deep thinker, as this is a very special comic.  Mike and Mindy have passed the torch and show that change is necessary and the show must go on, especially in comics.  Dave really nailed this one and it almost brought tears to my eyes the story was so beautiful.  Thanks again Dave.  And thanks for doing such a remarkable job coloring it!  Talk about eye candy!

Well, Week Three ends tomorrow folks, but don't be sad! Vas Littlecrow is here and taking us on a trip we'll never forget!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all tomorrow!
