GoComics Adds New Comics in September
September was a busy month for GoComics! We launched FOUR new comics! Let’s take a look back:
Lug Nuts by J.C. Duffy
Creator J.C. Duffy describes Lug Nuts by saying, “Suffice it to say that this is a comic strip with baseless delusions of grandeur, prompting occasional forays into uncharted territory, a dark forest where head-scratching and madness lurk behind every hollow log and hollow leg. Fasten your spats, and if you're on your bike, wear white. Remember to tip your waitress, and if a horse answers, hang up.”
J.C. Duffy has been a cartoonist with The New Yorker since 1998, and his cartoons have also appeared in Mad, Barron's, Esquire, Time and other magazines. He has been writing and drawing the syndicated newspaper comic strip The Fusco Brothers since 1989. His cartoons also appear on greeting cards, online licensing sites and in national advertising campaigns, and his humorous short stories appear in Narrative and Funny Times. His six books include five Fusco Brothers collections published by Andrews McMeel Universal and "Moot Points," published by Addison-Wesley, and his cartoons have also been featured in numerous anthologies.
The Awkward Yeti by Nick Seluk
The Awkward Yeti encompasses a variety of comics about life, introversion, science and the balance of our inner dialogue. See mundane ailments turned into epic stories, decide whether you’re more of a Heart or a Brain and try to see which of your friends is the most “Lars.” The Awkward Yeti is like reading multiple webcomics in one series, all from the same creator.
The Awkward Yeti creator Nick Seluk has been cartooning since childhood, when he made comics during class for his close friends. He dabbled in cartooning in high school and college, even creating a set of strips to submit to syndicates based on a middle-aged superhero. After college, he settled into graphic design, and used T-shirt designs as his cartooning outlet, primarily finding a niche in online contests before eventually starting his work with The Awkward Yeti in 2012. Nick lives in a Detroit suburb with his wife, three young children and a very awkward dog.
Half Full – in Spanish by Maria Scrivan
Maria Scrivan’s Half Full originally launched on GoComics in 2013. Now, it’s available in Spanish, too!
Half Full gives a unique and intelligent insight to the truths and trials of everyday life. From airline travel to social media, couples therapy or house hunting, it’s not always easy to see the bright side, but if you wait long enough, there is usually something to laugh about.
Scrivan’s cartoons are published in MAD, Parade, Prospect Magazine (U.K.), on Mashable.com, Salon.com, Funny Times and many other publications. She licenses her work to Recycled Paper Greetings, NobleWorks Cards, RSVP Greetings, American Greetings, Oatmeal Studios, CheckAdvantage and Neat-O Shop. Scrivan is a member of the National Cartoonists Society.
Winston by Andrew Hart
Winston is an unusual little boy who is very bright and has a unique slant on life. He lives at home with his mother and Gloom, the manifestation of her depression. Kinglsey, Winston’s pet crow, serves as the voice of optimism and encouragement. He helps to balance things out as young Winston tries to navigate his way in the world.
Aside from drawing Winston, creator Andrew Hart is a freelance illustrator, children’s book illustrator and editorial cartoonist. He is a founding member of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society, a cadre of artists who live, breathe and love cartooning and doing good.
