It's guest week again!  This time, Joe Flanders of the hilarious Web Comic Ninja And Pirate has dropped by!  So let's dive on in and have some "Loud" party fun!

Did I say loud?  I meant controlled!  This may very well be the tamest house party ever!  Love that Gromit is among the revelers!  Kids at school used to think I was weird for knowing what Wallace And Gromit was.  Uncouth Americans!  (I'm one to talk.  I can't even make it through 15 minutes of Doctor Who! )

Joe Flanders is a funny guy.  Strike that.  He's a REALLY funny guy!  His comic, Ninja And Pirate is among the most insanely funny web comics you will find!  The story, as you may have guessed, is about a Ninja and a Pirate and the wacky situations they get into on a regular basis!  From reading gruesome fairy tales to toddlers to ladies learning to be comfortable farting in front of dudes, Joe's hilarious duo have covered a lot of ground!  Joe is also a hell of a nice guy and a very supportive friend!  You need a good laugh?  Then click on the links to Joe's site!  You'll be thankful you did!  Thanks again Joe.  You rock dude!

Well, that's all for this week folks.  We close September on a somber note next week as the CRAZYVERSE pays tribute to a man whose spirit I never thought could be silenced, Robin Williams.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later.

And we're back!  Mike and Mindy enjoyed their week long break, as well as seeing others get the brunt of the punishment for a change!  Those two were giggling an awful lot the other day, so I went to see what was up and opened the door.  Big mistake on my part!  Why?  Well, see for yourself...

Not only did they need new clothes after that, they also devastated South San Diego!  The smell lingered for days!  And no, those skull undies AREN'T available for purchase... Yet!  And remember kids, lighting your farts may be hilarious, but it can carry horrible consequences!  Proceed at your own risk!

Well folks, that's all for now.  Next week, we'll have a New Mike And Mindy Guest Comic by the great Joe Flanders of Ninja & Pirate!  If it's anything like his regular toons, it should an epically hilarious strip, so stay 'tooned!"  Until then, take it easy and I'll catch y'all later!

September is here!  Normally, Mike And Mindy would be appearing this week, but thanks to a challenge by my good pal Warren Frantz, the creator of Off Season, I had to change things up a bit.  You see, for a better part of the last three weeks, people the World over are dumping ice water on themselves to help raise awareness and money for ALS research.  Sadly, a skin condition prevents me from dumping ice water on myself (I've gone into shock twice as a kid from jokers who put ice water in a Super Soaker.  Scary stuff.)  Luckily, cartoon me is perfectly healthy (Although with the weather being so bad right now, real me is tempted to risk it!), and raring to go!  So let's do this!

Why oh why did I let that stupid fox help out?  Well, at least we can make a few bucks extra renting Bubble out as an advertising blimp! It's interesting to note that California is in fact in the middle of a crippling drought, leading many towns here asking locals not to do ice bucket challenges due to water shortages.  Luckily, slime is quite plentiful 'round these parts and no, I didn't use slime because Warren's Canadian!  If that were the case, I would've said "I don't know" first!  Anyhoo, the guests in this strip are Gloria and Gayle Golz from the aforementioned Off Season.  After being challenged by his kids, Warren posted a video of himself taking the ice bath and then challenged me, which leads to this cartoon today!  ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a terrible condition that destroys muscles and nerves.  I've lost a neighbor to it and a former coworker battles it right now even.  If you haven't already, checkout ALSA.org to donate and stop the disease in its tracks.  And please don't just dump water on yourself simply because you think it's a viral video fad.  ACTUALLY donate and help a great cause!

Well, that's all for now.  Mike And Mindy will return next week with their most explosive comic ever... LITERALLY!!!  Until then, take it easy, PLEASE help ALS research and donate at ALSA.org and I'll catch y'all later!

Is it really that time again?  You bet ya!  So let's not waste anymore precious seconds and dive right in!  It's the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT 6!!!  The theme was A Monster Cereal Box Cover, so lets see what my CRAZY Cartoon Pals came up with, shall we?  Enjoy...

Kim Belding, Picpak Dog

 CCE veteran Kim Belding is back and finally got in first with this absolutely terrifying cover featuring the scariest monster there is: SKRILLEX!  Side effect do include an unhealthy love of dubstep and techno music!

Me.  Um, yeah...

 Here's my entry into the CCE!  Finally managed to finish early for a change and work in one of my beloved monsters!  This piece also marks a first for me: This is the first ever piece I've ever completely inked digitally.  A rather odd feeling, but I'm pretty happy with the turnout.

David Hurley, Don't Pick The Flowers

David Hurley makes his CCE debut with this funny cover!  Suzanne's always concocting something, usually with frightening results!  This time, her experimenting has paid off!  Just hope that cloud don't eat ALL the flowers!

Tim Green, Vinnie The Vampire

 Tim Green comes back to the CCE with the monster to scare all monsters: SUNNY!!!  Trust me folks, she may look cute, but you don't ever wanna cross this little terror!  Especially if you are A Negative!

Warren Frantz, Off Season
 Canada's CRAZIEST cartoonist returns to the CCE with this wacky creature from the Canadian Great Lakes!  Many an outdoor hockey player has gone missing from swimming to close to the holes it has left in the ice!

Scott Warren, Crunchy Bunches

 Scott Warren makes his CCE debut with this rather spirited piece!  Given that his comic is all about cereal mascots, he seemed like a perfect fit for this experiment!  He's also one of the folks who helped inspire this theme: It was a Crunchy Bunches comic last year about aliens getting the Halloween Cereal Mascots to help them take over the Earth that fanned the spark of an idea into a raging fire!  Thanks again Scott!

 EW Crowe returns to the CCE with a piece that's destined to keep most of us awake tonight!  Never stare at a gorgon!  Bad things will happen!  Oh wait, it comes with a blindfold?  Cool!  In that case stare all you want!

Dawn Griffin, Zorphbert & Fred

 After a long hiatus, the great Dawn Griffin returns to the CCE!  She is the other artist who helped inspire this experiment when she did a Z&F cereal box cover theme for a fan art contest (Which I won!)  When I saw this in my inbox, I flipped my lid it was so awesome!  Then on Twitter, Dawn informed me that through wild coincidence, another artist did a shirt with a similar theme!  The whole point behind the CCE is to see how different/similar artists think.  Having seen this and the shirt, I feel it's merely proof that not only do great minds think alike, but so do creative minds too.

Stephen Conroy, Australia

And finally, another newcomer to the CCE, Twitter pal Stephen Conroy, whose Monster has taken on a life of his own, defending other cereal monsters from harm!  Stephen's a pretty cool dude and hopefully will have a site of his own soon so ALL can check out his awesome artwork!

And so ends another CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT!  What's that?  You demand another theme already?  OK, fine!  Here it is:

Draw your (Or your favorite) web comic character(s) as demented parade balloons!

That's right folks!  Why should the mainstream have all the fun every Thanksgiving?  So grab some helium and give your toons the Macy's Day treatment!  The deadline is NOVEMBER 19TH, 2014, so PLENTY of time to do this!  Huge thanks to Tim Green from Vinnie The Vampire for coming up with this Experiment's theme!  And, as always, KEEP IT FAMILY FRIENDLY!!!  This is an all-ages site so NOTHING graphic or adult in nature!  Other than that, have fun!

That's all for now folks.  Next week, something a little different as Mushrooms gets the top billing this month thanks to a special challenge from my good pal Warren Frantz.  So until then, take it easy and I'll catch y'all later!

It's Guest Week!  And today week got a hard-hitting strip from Rich Lauzon, the master behind the hilarious Space Pest Removal!  So sit back, relax and DUCK!!!  This one comes at ya rather fast...

Talk about taking one for the team!  Mike sure knows how to take a punch, er, shot!  I hope Mindy gave Mike a kiss later for his troubles!  Whatever works I suppose.  Carnies are a hard bunch to guilt, but M&M have pulled off the impossible yet again!

Rich Lauzon is an amazing artist from Canada who does the outrageous Space Pest Removal, the tale of two alien exterminators (Who cameo as plush toys in the strip) that travel the galaxy capturing and releasing space pests!  Rich is also an awesome dude and when I got this a few weeks back, I almost spit my soda out I was laughing so hard!  (Note to all future artists: DON'T drink anything while seeing guest art for the first time!)  Thanks again Rich for delivering another "Strike" in the M&M canon!
That's all for this now folks but fear not, for next week, the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT returns for its sixth installment!  I hope y'all got a "Monster" appetite for this one, because it's gonna be big!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all next time!

Another week, another comic!  Time to pay tribute to one of my all-time favorite books and films, Willy Wonka (Charlie) And The Chocolate Factory!  I've wanted to do one for a while, so here goes...

We only make fun of the things we love, and believe me I LOVE the old movie and book, even the new movie!  Roald Dahl was a big influence on the CRAZYVERSE so it is in good fun that I parody this classic.  With that said, Willy Wonka would've been in a world of trouble if he existed in today's world!  Believe it not, the scene in the original where he has the kids sign a waiver was added after Warner Bros. pointed out to Dahl that Wonka would be arrested for allowing such things to happen at his factory.  And since so many bad things happen, albeit to really bad kids, I just had to explore what REALLY would've happened at the end!

And that's all for this week folks.  We got a wonderful guest comic coming next week from master cartoonist Rich Lauzon of Space Pest Removal!  So take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Well, we are now into August and finally recovered a bit from the insane time that was Comic Con 2014!  It's also time for a new Mike And Mindy, so slip into your bathing suit and sandals and head to the beach and enjoy the new toon!  Oh yeah, and put on some sunblock too!  Gets bad at the beach...

 Well, Mindy's always had quite a few uses.  Guess pool floaty can now be added to her resume!  I do have one curiosity about the beach toy though.  I'm quite proud of the color job I did, but why is it in comics/cartoons these things are always yellow with red polkadots?  And why do they all have those nubs on the head?  What horse has those?  Only a cartoonist could ponder such things!

And now, as promised, here are some pics from Comic Con 2014!  Enjoy...

 Hocus Pocus Cosplay!  Imagine my shock when my iPhone pic of this made it onto Dorkly.com's best cosplayers of SDCC14!  Pure joy!

 Dumb And Dumber Cosplay!  Hell yeah these dudes rock!


 Sexy Hulkamania?  It's true what they say: ANYTHING can be sexified at Comic Con!  On a side note, seeing Sting show up at the WWE panel was a dream come true!  As a wrestling fan, I can now die fulfilled!

 The Godzilla experience at the Hilton Park.  If only the movie had been as cool!

 Poor Jedi.  His medicolorian count is too low!

 Lydia Deets!  The Original Red Wedding!

 Blankman!  Talk about obscure!

 Sorry Robocop, but you JUST missed Sting.

 Colonel Sanderz and Dark Helmet.  He couldnt go to Comic Con until he had his coffee!
For the first time ever, Top Gun Cosplay!

Assemble your crew!


Buttercup and the Dread Pirate Roberts!  They were looking for the Fire Swamps!

The Elliot Brigade celebrate the digging up of the failed ET games that nearly destroyed the gaming industry!  (For real!  Look it up!)

And so ends another Comic Con.  Was a pretty wild time and man did it take a lot out of me!  Got some amazing books and swag though and made many new friends while catching up with some old ones.  And now, it's time to lay SDCC to rest and start gearing up for Long Beach Comic Con!

Well folks, that's all for now.  I'll be back next time with a new Mushrooms comic.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
