Welcome to August CRAZIES!!!  Sadly, no Comic Con recap this year, because, well, stuff.  Things are slowly starting to head back in the wrong direction again, but I'm confident we'll get back on the right track, but that's neither here nor there.  Art has returned to the CRAZYVERSE!!!  So let's just cut to the chase, shall we?  Enjoy...

It's a bird!  It's a plane!  No!  It's Rylee, the Guardian Corgi, aka Heavenly Kibble!  Faster than a speeding cat, louder than a squeaking toy and stronger than stale Pedigree, Rylee is the creation of cartoonist Joie Foster, a dear friend from the con circuit who's making quite a name for herself these days, not only in comics but in animation too!  Her comic series, Heavenly Kibble: Guardian Corgi, is a fun all ages read about a corgi and her human fighting to save the world from evil!  What I like about this series, besides the fact that it's silly as all get out, is that there are a lot of great homages and nods to classic anime and manga, namely Sailor Moon.  I also like the fact that Rylee, the corgi in question, is not anthropomorphic.  She's drawn as a realistic dog, a stubby little corgi who can only go as fast as her short legs will take her!  I met Joie back in 2014 at WonderCon.  We were in the same aisle and became fast friends with a mutual love of cartoons, 80's nostalgia and the sad fact that neither of us had much luck that year, though our luck would change and quick!  We also share an interest in wacky clothing, as I tend to wear funny novelty shirts while Joie wears funny novelty pants!  Between the two of us, we've probably put a few Spencer's employees though college!  One of things I miss most about cons is seeing all my pals that I literally only get to see at shows maybe once or twice a year.  Hopefully next year, we can all get together again for some comics, food truck staples and silly clothes!  Until then, keep those corgis rocking Joie!

That's all for today.  Next week, come back and we'll do some moose stuff.  What does that entail?  Hell if I know?  We don't have moose in San Diego, though my nephew eats like one, such bad table manners that boy has!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
