Super Proud

June is Gay Pride Month. So this seemed like a good way to start off the month. I’ll be running other LGBTQ-themed gags about once a week during June.

By the way, this is the first time I’ve posted this comic on the web. But I actually created it last year and turned it into a fridge magnet for the San Diego Comic-Con. Sales at the Prism Comics booth were…well, super!

 

Art by Gill Fox from the cover of Crack Comics #26, Nov. 1942.

Bunk Mates

I turned this image into a fridge magnet for sale at the Prism Comics booth at the San Diego Comic-Con last week.
.
But I couldn’t decide what color the background should be. So, before the show, I posted four variations on Facebook and asked friends for their opinions.
.
This one above was the favorite, but a strong second was this one with the rust brown background. (See below.)
.
And the magnet? It sold well. Thanks for all the help everyone!
