Here we are, a day late but better than never!  We wrap up the Crazy cartoon Experiment this week with the second part of our fourth installment.  We still got a little bit of "Explosive" action left, so let's get to it!

 CAAATS! creator Matt Gross has returned for another go, and he certainly dropped a "Bomb" here!  What in Heaven's name has that thing been eating?  Looks like he could use some "Thunderwear" himself!

Casey At The Bat  creator Bob Glasscock enters the CCE with this look at how the Boxer Rebellion REALLY went down.  Next up, Bob plans to give the accurate treatment to the battle of Waterloo!

Matt Gajdos of the hilarious and often sweet Mister G Kids has provide this hilarious strip for his rookie effort!  Talk about getting a "Bang" for your buck!  Who knew big and tall stores could be so cruel?

Stephen McGee of the outrageous Rain Dogs comic makes his CCE debut (and scores some huge points with me) by giving Mike and Mindy a guest spot in his entry!  Leave it to Mike to overcomplicate things!  His butt's gonna be really sore when he gets back down... Provided he ever does!

 The always hilarious Crashsuit of the Robot Cake Tank returns to the CRAZYVERSE with this re-imagining of the destruction of Alderaan.  I wonder if the crew on the Millennium Falcon could smell anything when they came out of Light Speed?

Brendan "Jim" Boughen of Cartoons By Jim sent in this Dandy.  Apparently 007 needs to be a bit kinder to M in the future!  On a side note, I had no idea the flap at the front of briefs was called a "Y-front."  You see?  The CCE CAN be educational when given the chance!

Finally, Corey Davies of Cosworth Grind enters the world of the CCE and "Drops" quite a strip on all of us!  Let that be a lesson to all current and future henchmen: Your job is to follow orders, not question them.  Regardless of how doomed your leader's plans appear to be.

And thus concludes the Crazy cartoon Experiment 4!  I hope you readers enjoyed these wild entries.  I think I speak for all my fellow creators when I say we had a great time drawing these.  And yes, there will be a Fifth one!  So if you want in, follow me on Twitter for updates and rules!  The next theme will be announced next month so stay "Tooned"!

Finally this week, the lovely Michelle Hernandez of Pen Hits The Pad sent in yet another piece of Fan Art featuring the one and only and ever so cut MINDY!  So sit back and enjoy as Mindy smells the roses...

Mindy ought to get some sort of sponsorship deal.  She is clearly making bloomers fashionable again!  And what a sweet message.  I love ya too Mindy!  And the necktie, such a great touch!  Mere words don't do Michelle's art any justice.  She makes everything look so whimsical and sweet.  I especially love it when she draws my characters.  She makes them look like real kids.  It's a skill I wish I had.  Thanks again Michelle my Belle.

Well, that's all this week folks.  I'll be back next time with a NEW Mike and Mindy that'll really "String" you along.  There's also an "Explosive" New Splash Page celebrating the 4th Of July and loads of pics taking a look back at a past Comic Con (Yup. It's that time of year already!).  So "Toon" in next time!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

After six long months, the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT is back!  For those of you new to the blog or merely forgot, the premise is simple: A theme or subject is given, and numerous artists draw their interpretations of it.  We've had some wild themes in the past, but this time around may very well be the CRAZIEST: "Exploding Underwear"...  Needless to say, we got some very "Combustible" entries!  So sit back and enjoy as we kick off the first part of the Fourth installment of this wild project!

 First up, infamous Pepsi hater and Picpak Dog creator Kim Belding who actually helped inspire the theme!  You see, Kim loved the exploding bloomers gag from Mike And Mindy #32 (August 2012), and said I should put 'em in every comic!  I laughed but noted that I just couldn't come up with that many ways to explode underwear, but it would make a good CCE theme down the road.  Kim eagerly volunteered so here we are!  And just like always, Kim "Blasted" a winner!

 Up next, my CRAZY "Brother" from the Great White North, Off Season creator Warren Frantz!  Here he took his character Hardy and gave him the ultimate in underwear protection: THUNDERWEAR!!! Finally!  A product us dudes can really benefit from!  I'd patent that one Warren.  Those could really "Explode" onto the scene!

 And here we have my entry!  I remember hearing a while back about two eight-year-olds that invented underwear with a tear-away strap that were supposedly wedgie-proof.  Not a bad idea, but can't we do better than that?  Here, I present underwear that's not only wedgie proof, but will REALLY give bullies something to think about!  I'm already working on a newer version that hunts down friends and relatives of the bullies, just to drive the point across further!

Here we have CCE newcomer Jim Haas, creator of Nate The Robot.  In this entry, the bots take exploding "Boxers" a bit too literally and, well... You know that's gonna sting tomorrow!  Let's just hope they don't try "Combing the Desert" next!

Vinnie The Vampire creator and very good friend Tim Green is responsible for this brilliant homage to to the legendary Spy Vs. Spy and the not-so-legendary (Yet!) Mike And Mindy.  Mike knows just how much Mindy likes her bloomers!  Too bad she's a few steps ahead of him, much like their pointy nosed forbearers!  I gotta be honest folks, this is my personal favorite so far!  Tim really "Set it Off" here!

Crass Fed Comics mastermind Robert Deans sure knows how to get a party started!  Once again, Mike and Mindy get to do a guest spot as Mike reveals he too has a trick or two up his sleeve!  Or pocket in this case!  I can already see Rob face palming with this right up! 

Next up is another CCE newcomer and very good friend, By The Fingernails creator Dave Schubert!  Big "Schooby" Cool teaches us a very valuable lesson when it comes to spy gear: ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION!!!  That and cats make rotten secret agents!

 The Canadian invasion continues with another CCE rookie, Lunarbaboon Comics creator Chris Grady!  Here, he took the simply approach, and one that will no doubt make a lot of us gag if we saw this in real life!  (Seriously, have you ever seen your grandparents make out! *Shivers*)

The newbies just keep rolling out here!  Zombie Oaks creator Axton Kahler decided to add a really personal touch in this one.  You see, some pals of ours are constantly harassed by the internet trolls that frequent a certain website.  Axton is no doubt stirring up a hornet's nest here, but kudos to him for having the guts to stand up for some very cool creators. 

I think it might be easier to just say from here on out that the rest of today's participants are CCE rookies!  Up next, Benjamin Pernick of Turbo Sloth!  Here, he teaches us that even undies have feelings.  Let that be a lesson to you all: Free and easy ain't what it's cracked up to be!

 Up next is Mark Glavin of Adorable Crap. 70 years later and it's still fun to rip on Nazis!  This one might have been a bit adult for this site, but since it bashes Hitler, I'll let slide.  As Jon Lovitz says in Rat Race: "Well, Hitler had it coming!  What goes around comes around!"  Indeed.

Here we have artist Drake Tigerclaw of Victor 70, who shows that "Thunderwear" definitely seems to have some legs to it!  As the Tiger suggests, that is indeed a very cruel prank.  Kids today sure take things far!  Gotta love the payoff though.  Very original!
Last up, we have V. Barker of Chalky Hearts, who no doubt has given everyone a lot of ideas right now!  I guess that's one way to get around that.  Can't say I'd take this approach at airport security.  Quite frankly, I gave up on flying altogether. Too much of a hassle!

And thus we come to the halfway mark of the latest experiment.  But never fear!  We have even more coming next week as well as a some special Mindy fan art from the lovely Michelle Hernandez!  So get ready for even more "Explosive" comics heading your way!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Hello CRAZY faithful!  You see that image above?  It's part of the Fan Art Challenge that my good pal Dawn Griffin hosted for her hilarious comic strip Zorphbert and Fred!  And right now, YOU can help me win this deal by voting for ZORPHIE PUFFS right now!  Click here to bring the CRAZY trophy home!  There are other great entries too by the way, so no peer pressure here!  And be sure to have a bowl afterwards!

 *Caution: The CRAZYVERSE is NOT responsible for any inflating that may occur from eating "Zorphie Puffs" cereal*

And while the CRAZY train's still rolling, checkout the Guest Strip I did for Jack Slade's awesomely funny Scaredemy strip!  If you haven't read it yet, your missing out an a great comic about a boy named Simon and his misadventures at a school for monsters, ghouls and assorted weirdos!  If only this place had existed when I was a kid! Click here and explore the comedy beyond!

Well, it's Mushrooms week and we have a very special edition today!  Last year, I did a strip called "Euphemisms" that got quite a response among readers.  It's time to get literal folks!  Enjoy the new 'toon...

Darn taffy pullers!  You just can't be too careful around those things!  And technically, that kid's more cubed than square, but then the joke wouldn't work so I decided to take some cartoon liberties with it!  And I have seen it rain cats and dogs before.  Spilled a bag of Snausages once.  The neighborhood strays went nuts!  Those fuzzy projectiles are all stars from the Web Comics realm by the way.  Among those featured are Olive and Hazel (From Matt Gross' CAAATS!), Puck and Lanny (From Warren Frantz's Off Season), Cody (From Jamie Cosley's Cody the Cavalier) and Gorr (Mark Stokes' Zombie Boy)!  I've sung the praises of these strips and their creators before, and I'm gonna do it again!  Click those links!  Your lives will be richer for it!

And now, it's time for some Fan Art!  This gem came to me from Dutch artist Nathalie Kokke!  Enjoy...

I'd had a rough few days a couple of months ago and Nathalie was kind enough to send me this piece to cheer me up.  Needless to say, it worked!  I really love how this looks.  Nathalie's got such a beautiful style.  Mindy looks like a Disney princess even!  Thanks again Nathalie.  You got a great talent!  If you'd like to see more of her amazing work, click here!

Well folks, that's all for today.  We'll be back next time with something very EXPLOSIVE...  The return of the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT!!!  It's been six long months since the last one and we got a great line-up planned for the fourth installment, so be ready.  Part one goes up next week!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to June!  Time sure flies fast here in the CRAZYVERSE!  Seriously, we're already approaching the halfway point of 2013!  CRAZY, no?  Anyway, it's the first week of the month and that can mean only one thing: NEW Mike and Mindy!

After an epic struggle to get to school on time (only to learn it was a whole lot of effort for nothing), Mike and Mindy are happy to be taking it easy at the start of Summer vacation.  And there's nothing better than a nice little game of leapfrog to start things right.  Enjoy the comic...

OUCH!!! Guess this game wasn't a "Smash" hit... Or was it?!  Poor Mike.  He just seems to have the worst luck when it comes to strategically placed poles!  I suppose that's the price you pay when leapfrogging with your eyes closed!

Well, that's all for this week!  We'll be back next week with a special edition of Mushrooms and perhaps even some Fan Art!  In the meantime, take care and I'll catch y'all next time!
