    One final find at APE was the work of Danny Roberts. I was going to add him in here, but his website was down. Go ahead and check out Damned Ink Studios

    Check out his (Danny Roberts) gallery of The Injured, it’s really impressive.

    i like the slice of toast guy. anddddd some of the other ones. but the one i remember right now is toast. i like anthropomorphic breakfast items. eggs (heros), bad aigs (bad doods), cheese wheels (heroines), belgium waffles (snooty), cheerios, (always getting lost under the fridge).

    i totally just read the whole comic book here by your number 6 person. i’m not the hugest fan of the style or the writing, but i was still totally engrossed by it. possibly in part because it was a better option than index coding.

    Page #5 (Brad Silverman) is paying homage to Daisy Kutter, who was originally conceived by Kazu Kibuishi. Kazu is the artist I was telling you about who drew “Copper” and “Clive & Cabbage”. (Rabbit & Cabbage from my poor memory)

    Page 4 and here’s a link to the real Daisy Kutter
