Today's guest strip by

Instant Classic's Brian Carroll

Under the wire

Today's update arrives a couple of hours later than usual, but rest assured, those extra hours were time well spent... Brian was just putting the finishing touches on today's guest strip tour-de-force. If you've read Instant Classic before -- and if you haven't you should -- you are already familiar with Brian Carroll's creative mastermindery. You are also probably familiar with Litchfield. Who knew he and Rikk would play off each other so well?

I sure have gotten a lot of questions about yesterday's strip! Some people have been asking if I drew it, which I can honestly say I did not. Meanwhile, other readers are asking why Rikk's most recent work strongly resembles the brilliant art of Wigu's Jeff Rowland. Now that is a good question!

Today's guest strip by

Skull Panda's Rikk Estoban

Brain worms

Surprise! Today's guest strip was brought to you by the always controversial Rikk Estoban. If nothing else, he is certainly a versatile artist. His previous work wasn't entirely disimilar to my own. However, I think this strip's art reminds me more of another webcartoonist's work. I just can't quite place my finger on which one.

I can't link you to Rikk's website because he hasn't finished building it yet. He says that it's because you "can't rush real art," but between you and me, I think he's just a bit of a slacker. Don't worry, when Rikk finally launches his online home, I will definitely hook you up.

As I mentioned yesterday, a new DVD edition of the Iron Giant was released today! I haven't got my copy yet, but I will soon. I'm really hoping that lots of people will pick up this vastly underappreciated gem of animation now that director Brad Bird has made his name with a newer, more popular flick. Which new flick? I don't know, something about a family of computer-animated superheros, maybe you've heard of it?

Today's guest strip by

Comet 7's Dave Tekiela

A message and some words to call your own

Dave Tekiela is frequently a man of large pixels, but today's strip (and occassionaly his own comic) shows that he has a firm handle on the smaller variety, as well. Dave's strip for us today is the kind that gets funnier and funnier every time you read it... even if it is a touch more disturbing than this comic usually gets. I mean, killing off one of a comic's major cast members in a guest strip? How rude! What kind of cartoonist does that?

What a week of purchasable entertainment this is shaping up to be! In the next five days, Metroid Prime 2, Half-Life 2, Alien Hominid, Viewtiful Joe 2 and the new edition of The Iron Giant on DVD will all be landing in stores. I definitely won't be buying them all at once, but honestly, I probably shouldn't be buying any of them until I get this Christmas special finished!
