New Underground Comix Coming!
« on: January 18, 2024, 10:15:28 AM »
    For those of you that enjoyed our Christmas Charity Set, one of our contributing artists - Floydman Sumner - is putting out his own rag soon! He's calling them Swell Comics, and they look like they'll be similar to the old MAD comics and underground mags Jay Lynch used to draw! You can find more info at FundMyComic.com. Go check it out, show some support, or even order a copy! Keep Wacky-ish art alive!

Now is this going to be like 'MAD Magazine', but with characters from the Wacky world!?!? That would be cool, but just a spin off of the magazine with non-Wacky characters....sorry no thanks.

It would be cool to have a new comic series based on the MANY Wacky characters and items from our Wacky world to hopefully inspire future wacky collectors.

Something similar to:

IDW and later Dynamite Comics did Garbage Pail Kids comic books, why not have Dynamite Comics do a new Wacky Packages comic book series?

    I think you all have a great opportunity here. There has always been a connection between comics and Wackys. Jay Lynch did tons of cartooning, like Nard and Pat, The Pigeon People, and even some Bazooka Joe strips. Art Spiegelman is famous for his Maus graphic novels, but did tons of lesser known work too. Bill Griffith had his nationally recognized Zippy the Pin Head comic after he gave us Generally Defective bulbs. More recently Jeff Zapata has done both Wackys and work on comics. What you have here is a chance to get in on the ground floor and grab a Number 1 issue! It will help the artist, and you'll be able to say "I knew him way back when!" With MAD magazine defunct, what else are you gonna read??? Order your copy of SWELL today!
