Excuse me, yes, is that a bandwagon? Have room for one more do you? Great, I’ll just hop right on …
Ok, I sketched this out a couple days ago after seeing one of those commercials for the 40th time. I thought they were clever the first couple times, but enough already. Seriously.
Then I noticed that this was a popular parody target amongst real cartoonists who are far better than I as was mentioned before. Oh well. I figured I would finish mine off real quick and post it now rather than waiting until next week when it would be a tired joke.
Sorry Pookey, just add this one to the pile. By the way, you forgot to mention this one from DJ, this one from Today: The Comic and this one from PC Weenies.
What’s this? Another Digital Strips comic update? You bet your sweet bippy it is. Can anyone feel the crescendo coming?
I recently discovered that a new documentary is being made about Will Eisner and deservedly so. No matter where or how you read your comics, in books, in a newspaper or on the web, Eisner’s influence can be felt. He’s widely considered the “Father” of comics and pioneered the concept of the graphic novel and coined the phrase “sequential art”. I can’t wait to check out this film.
Hey there folks. Right from the seat back tray table of my latest flight to your glowing monitor, yet another Digital Strips comic.
I’m sorry to report that this very site has been the target of a rather mean spirited attempt to shut us down and it may yet succeed, if only temporarily. As a result I’ve had to shut off access to our comments and prevent new comments from being posted, at least for the time being. I know that the comments section on our site has been an active part of our conversations lately and it’s really sad that I have to do this, but it must be done.
It’s late at night and I’m in my hotel room in Dallas, TX. I just wanted to jump online and give a little update here on the Digital Strips comic. I know it seems like I’ve been slacking, but really I’ve been drawing and writing the comic from plane to plane. It’s just damn hard to find a scanner when you really need one. The hotels I hop around to all have business centers where printers and photocopiers are aplenty, but I have yet to find one with a scanner. This past weekend I made it back home for a few precious hours before hitting the airways yet again and I was able to get a bunch of stuff scanned.
Here’s another Digital Strips comic. Moving right along in my little story I’m expanding the world a tad. I need a place where we can mention all our new additions to the roster, so I’m getting the comic to a place where other characters can come and go.
On another note, we’ve gotten some complaints about the audio quality in recent shows. In case you didn’t catch this situation, Phil’s computer has gone kaput. Continue reading
Ok, I’m getting back into doing some more Digital Strips comics. I have an idea for a new story arc and this will be the lead in for it. I had taken some time away from doing the comics while I tried to put together an animated/video/podcast thing, but that has turned out to be far more time consuming and a much bigger pain in the butt than I had anticipated. I think I’ll stick with comics, it’s much more of a solo kind of affair.
I love drawing comics. I’m not known by and large as a cartoonist and I’m certainly not a professional, but I carry around a sketchbook with me almost everywhere I go and draw comics every chance I get even if it is for my own amusement or the amusement of my friends and family. I just wanted to get that out there before I go on here. Some of you may be asking yourselves what has been going on with Zampzon and Digital Strips. I know I’ve been noticeably absent for weeks now.

Hello boys and girls. Remember me? I know I haven’t been around a whole lot lately, but I wanted to hop online and let everyone know about a really great milestone one of my favorite comics has reached. I just thought everyone should take note that HOUSD is about to post it’s 1,000th comic to the web. Geeze, one thousand freaking comics. No matter how you slice it, that is a lot of work and dedication. We send out our sincerest congratulations to Ali Graham for all the effort he’s put into entertaining us all … for free. Be sure to stop by tomorrow when many thoughts and much fan artwork will be posted on the HOUSD site in celebration. And if you happen to be at the UK Web and Mini Comix Thing be sure to stop by and pat Ali on the back in person. Nice going Ali!
