Ah, this is technically the very first double-page spread I have done in my comic. I literally trimmed two 11″ x 17″ sheets of bristol at the “trim” line and taped them together. Should be interesting in paper form, not sure how well it will work online in terms of reading the text.
My use of text here is pretty clumsy. I may actually go back and hand in the text on the banners and boxes as I am not skilled enough in warping text in Photoshop to get the effects I want. This is in part why having someone do your lettering would be helpful.
So, what do we have here? Dick Cheney? A shotgun blast to the face? So, what, gun control rights. Blackface? Oh, boy, we’re getting into race politics? Lots going on here at The Devil & Mr. Gandhi.
In case there is any doubt about the matter, the creator of this comic is very much for strong(er) gun control laws and very much against the use of blackface in all its incarnations. Maybe I will write some brilliant progressive liberal manifesto in which I elucidate all my views on equality…. or not. Hope you’re enjoying Season 3 of The Devil & Mr. Gandhi. Stay tuned for more!
The Devil has gone in search of Dick.
Where is Riviera, TX? And what relevance does it have? Who is Devil’s “Spiritual Guru”? Well, maybe Google Riviera, TX, shotgun, and ranch. You’ll get a sneak preview as to where Devil is going.
So, Trump has won the Republican candidacy, and instead of thanking his ol’ buddy, his ol’ pal Devil, he snubs him! Well, that had Devil steaming under the collar to be sure. He is more upset about it than you might think. And in his hour of crisis, his hour of need, Gandhi attacks him? What’s going on? Just because Devil wants to take a trip to the Riviera? Oh, wait, you say that Devil does not actually say “THE” Riviera? There may be some other Riviera? You are a more intelligent and perspicacious audience than I previously thought! Well done! Stay tuned to see where Devil is going.
Welcome back! I’m talking to myself, not you, dear audience. Welcome back, me. You’ve been away for far too long. Where have you been? Why are your writing to yourself like this? Oh, don’t mind me.
It’s the totally non-climactic return of The Devil & Mr. Gandhi! No color, not even halftoning, just black and white ink and letters. To be honest, I feel like I need to crank out pages for this 2016 Election-themed comic if I want to publish it before Election Day, which means no time to color. So, look for more and faster updates, but all in black and white. Wish me luck, and tune in often to see how The Devil & Mr. Gandhi make out on The Road to the White House.
For your enjoyment, I present to you a guest strip by the indomitable James Kersey.
I can’t quite explain how appreciative I am regarding guest strips from other creators. This comic strip, in its printed form, the new daily format, what I post on Tapastic, never would have happened if I didn’t not receive an awesome piece of “reward” art. You can read more about that HERE. I’ve been in a rut of sorts since devoting so much time and effort for the Holidaze / Devil & Gandhi crossover issue and this guest strip by Jim not only made my day, it truly re-inspired me to get back to work doing daily strips and full-page runs for a new issue as well. Thanks, Jim!
