SIMPLER CONSPIRACY TIMES

A rejected New Yorker cartoon from a “slightly” simpler time when we had no idea what was coming. For the record, Frasier was an okay show from the looks of the few episodes
I saw. It was not “must see tv” for me personally. During that time period I was
only interested in keeping up with The X-Files. I guess the truth could still out there
if it’s not… “fake news.”

My “Semi-Reliable” Diary Comics At The Comics Journal

A big thanks to Editor in Chief, Tucker Stone for allowing me to do
a week of diary comics over at The Comics Journal this week! Do
you wonder why I’m doing this? Do you have questions about
how reliable they are? Do you wonder when it will be a
Netflix series? I have answers!

I never really gave much thought to creating autobiographical comics. After all, my life has not been incredibly traumatic or
amazing. I wasn’t a kid who made the difficult move from my
country of origin to a foreign land. I didn’t survive a war. I didn’t
grow up in a funeral home. I didn’t even work as file clerk at
the Veterans Administration Hospital in Ohio! The short stories
related in my Semi-Reliable Diary Comics from the 90’s kind of
spilled out of me as I attempted to write some sort of 90’s genre
tv show review.  That idea deflated as soon I typed the words,
“Night Man was a tv show…” But what was going on with
me personally while Star Trek TNG and Batman Adventures was
king seemed like a story I was more interested in telling.

These “Diaries” were a bit therapeutic for me, even if reading
them is absolutely no fun for you. Writing about past events
can cause long lost memories and emotions to bubble to the
surface, and I tried my best not to be too precious or make
poignant inspirational messages out of my memories. What
you see is mostly how it all came back to me. We all know
memories are unreliable.

Why are they “semi-reliable?” As I said above, our memories
are imperfect at best. I was a big fan of Eddie Campbell’s comics
in the 90s and often enjoyed his Alec strips. Thus, I admit taking
a page from Alec and changed names, dates and chronology
to protect the guilty and the innocent. After all, when it
becomes a Netflix show I don’t want any lawsuits.

MoCCA, CORONA AND A NEW BOOK

I am no longer on face book (if anyone misses me). No social media is perfect, but fb was becoming particularly troubling.  Thus, I hope to be posting here more often where absolutely nobody will be seeing my ramblings!  Ha! I laugh…but that is basically true.

On to the main point of this post though! I wanted to announce and show off a preview of the 5th issue of Rabbit Who Fights! Rabbit Who Fights is my one man Anthology which is basically published once a year. This issue has a wrap around cover and TWO Disciples 12 stories along with some humorous cartoons as always.

The book is at the printer now, but will premier at MoCCA…unless  the Coronavirus blows up and causes all large gatherings to be cancelled.

If you can’t get to MoCCA, it will be on sale at various stores that I will post about at a later date. It will also be on sale (along with my other books) on my Gumroad site! 

Wash your hands, don’t touch the hand holds on the subway
and enjoy the brief preview below! See my updates
on Instagram! (owned by fb…. I know… : (

Free! Totally Free comics!!

Free comics of mine in this post, that is.

Our old microwave started to turn itself on.
Yes, you’d be sitting there watching the latest amazing
prequel like…let’s say…Sheldon, because somebody has
to watch that, and the microwave would start cooking
nothing. Thankfully I was  home to unplug it, which is
what I had to do, as it would NOT stop turning on. I
never knew microwaves could, or would, do this. 

The microwave delivery people, three of them, 
took away the bad microwave. While they installed
the new one, they needed to borrow scissors and use
the bathroom. Then we talked about the plot
developments in Sheldon while I wondered
where the scissors had got to. 

Back to free comics. This page is from Issue two of
RWF, my self published comic. Issue two is sold out,
but you can get other issues HERE!   Watch
your microwaves!

Red Ryder Installment 6

Page 19 of my graphic novel, which has so little to do with Red Riding Hood that even I’m confused by the title, is available on my Patreon page.  if you want to give the story so far a read, just go HERE.  Otherwise, enjoy the page below which never appeared in any version of Red Riding Hood ever.

Friday in Brooklyn

 I hate ice coffee. I love coffee, but ice coffee is just a chore. Kind of like medication that you need to take. Yesterday it reached 90 degrees in Brooklyn so…it’s ice coffee season. It also means that soon people will be outside enjoying summer. As they should. So I’ll squeeze in one more promo concerning my self publishing empire! If you haven’t yet signed up to get the first issue of Rabbit Who Fights, you can do so HERE.  See a sample page below:

Is it political? Is it a super hero type book? I’ll be honest, it’s evolving as I work on it. Issue two has a completely different type of story related to the above characters.

The first week in June will also see part three of Red Ryder and the Big Bad Woods. A bit of which you can see below!

Is that not the most EXCITING dialogue you have ever heard?

In conclusion, ice coffee bad, check out my Patreon- comic publishing empire if you get a moment.

Thanks!

Press Release Friday (from my press secretary )

“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE”
April 21, 2017

Humor, Horror and Age Drive Tim Hamilton to Self-Publish Comics.

Children’s book author, New Yorker cartoonist and artist behind the Eisner nominated adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is adding self-publishing to his busy schedule.

Tim Hamilton announces he will write and illustrate his own twenty four-page anthology comic titled, Rabbit Who Fights which will come out three times a year. The anthology will contain sci-fi horror inspired and informed by the current state of the world, along with humor in the form of Hamilton’s comic, Brother Sasquatch. Previously available only on-line, Brother Sasquatch’s, humor is also informed by the darker side of human nature. The book will also contain rejected New Yorker cartoons and a story called, Hospital Comics.

He will also digitally publish a monthly humorous adventure called, Red Ryder and the Big Bad Woods which will involve talking animals and the existential threat of senility and old age.

Hamilton is publishing this all through Patreon with the intent of getting his own creations into public view on his own terms. Most of these comics don’t fit easily into a marketable niche and Hamilton wanted them in print before he gets any older as self-publishing is a game for the young.

You can see previews and find out more about, Rabbit Who Fights and Red Ryder and the Big Bad Woods on Hamilton’s Patreon page at:  https://www.patreon.com/TimHamiltoncomics

Frog Friday

Early in the morning, before I started working on the daily grind of a project I’ll talk about later, I warmed up my fingers drawing some frogs. This character is featured in my on going story Red Ryder And The Big Bad Woods on my Patreon page. Although I’m on Patreon and those who subscribe get to see all sorts of behind the scenes sausage making, I of course will still post fun stuff here for all to see!
(If you want to see more talking animals…head over to my Patreon)
