This week's pick comes from our Licensing Coordinator, Saarah: I met Charlie Podrebarac earlier this year while working on releasing three themed collections of CowTown comics for Udig. Charlie is just about the nicest guy you'll ever meet, and while an excellent cartoonist, CowTown isn't his only hobby. CowTown BBQ sauce is also something he makes; it's sold several at places around Kansas City, and its even served at Oklahoma Joes'! That said, after our first meeting, he sent me a variety pack of his different sauces, and forever cemented himself as someone to be liked.
If you were a big fan of knock-knock-style jokes as a kid (like myself), and generally laugh with a single "HA," you'll probably like CowTown.
Cowtown is a hand-drawn, hand-painted, hand-lettered panel cartoon produced by Charlie Podrebarac since 1984. Cowtown is where cows, pigs, poultry, cats, dogs, ninnies, aliens, Elvis impersonators, Bigfoot, clowns and a guy named Bob interact in museums, bars, coffee houses, homes, offices, zoos, aquariums, casinos, hot tubs and yes, Bar-B-Q's. Speaking of the latter, Cowtown is also a Barbecue Sauce! Huh? Yes! Moo!
