My Renewed Determination (Guest Strip by James Kersey)

For your enjoyment, I present to you a guest strip by the indomitable James Kersey.

James Kersey takes over my comic

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!

You can see more of Jim’s artwork on Twitter, at his website, and order cool prints and other merchandise on Society6.

A Dose of Daily Comics

devil and flagIf you’ve been wondering where have The Devil  & Gandhi been….. well, they’ve been on Tapastic! You can check out some of the latest “daily” format comic strips here: and full page episodes will be coming back soon, including another crossover episode with Holidaze Comics.  And speaking of Holidaze… have you supported their Kickstarter campaign yet? You should, because every dollar you commit to Holidaze will go to a starving child in need.  Or, maybe not. Maybe you will exchange your money for a printed, 140 page collected comic book! Either way, right?



The Double-Cross(Over) [Page 6]

Devil and Gandhi

Well, leave it to Mr. Defazio to swoop in and pick up the hot chicks, right? He’s kind of old and gross for those two, but he does “own”(?) or run an apartment building. Who knows? Anyway, so ends the 6-page installment of the Devil & Gandhi / Holidaze Crossover.  I hope you enjoyed it. The Devil thought he was getting away with something buying that so-called gift for Gandhi, but in the end, Gandhi had a way of turning things around, thus the double-cross in this crossover event.

So, now Dave and Andrew get to take over. They are hard at work on a Free Comic Book Day comic, so the Devil & Gandhi Crossover Event will be stretching out over most of 2015, so stay tuned to here and to

I’ll be posting pages 4-6 as Part 2 of The Double-Cross(Over) on Tapastic, and  I may even post all 6 pages on one webpage for easier viewing.  Hope you enjoyed!

Devil and Gandhi

Page 5, just one more page to go!  This isn’t the same hot tub party The Devil left the other day.  What are swans doing there? And is that Cupid and Dracula from Holidaze?! Tune in on Friday to see what exactly is going on and see who is getting cross and who is getting “double-crossed” in this double-cross-over!

The Double-Cross(Over) [Page 2]


A Priest, a Rabbi, and Mohandas Gandhi walk into a bar….  Not quite, but close. Gandhi wasn’t going to let a crude Snowman stop him from finding out where Devil has been spending time. But he probably didn’t expect to run into such a peculiar cast of characters in the bar known as Holidaze.

holidaze_charactersClick on the link above to see the cast of regulars Dave Dellecese and Andrew Cieslinski have dreamed up for Holidaze. If you want to see an brilliant page of mythical icon cameo appearances, be sure to pick up Issue #1 of Holidaze at Comixology, you won’t regret it.

As for this page, I chose to borrow St. Paddy, Chester the Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy, and Cupid. You may also recognize a certain macabre poet who has met with Devil & Gandhi previously. Is Holidaze on Baker St. in London? No, I don’t think so, so another character is a bit out of place here.  And who is that hairy guy on the left? Let’s just say it’s best not to use the bathroom after he’s been in there.

Where is this episode going? Chill out! Another page is coming up this Friday. Gandhi will get to the bottom of Devil’s newly found profession.

Devil and Gandhi

Welcome back, everybody! I am pleased, excited, and downright proud to present to you the Season 3 premiere episode of The Devil & Mr. Gandhi. You’ve waited long enough, it’s time to kick off the start of the comic crossover event of 2015.

Holidaze Crossover

If you haven’t yet been to visit Holidaze, run, don’t walk! Check out and follow Dave and Andrew on all of their social media accounts. You won’t regret it.  And for the first 6 pages of Season 3 of The Devil & Mr. Gandhi, our two old chums will be visiting with the fine folks of Holidaze. Many thanks to Dave and Andrew for letting me borrow some of their characters.  And guess what? In the future, Dave and Andrew get to borrow Devil and Gandhi, and I cannot wait to see what happens. Tune in on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week and next to see what happens in my 6-page installment of the Devil & Gandhi / Holidaze Crossover Event!

Happy New Year 2015

Devil and Gandhi New YearHappy New Year from the entire staff: management, crew, migrant workers, outsourced labor, and unpaid interns of Ink Puddle Enterprises and The Devil & Mr. Gandhi comic! It’s been an exciting year. The Devil and Gandhi had their Issue #1 supersized up to regular comic format, Issue #2 was published, and both made it to the Small Press Expo (SPX). We’ve swapped some awesome art with fellow comickers, and most importantly… we’ve survived! Yippee!

2015 is literally, figuratively, and ironically just around the corner.  Be sure to stay tuned for the rest of Season 3, including a Crossover Event with fine folks over at Holidaze Comics! Expect more adventures, more merchandise, and more mayhem. See you next year!
