It’s Wacky Wonder Woman Wednesday!

Yep, I’m saddened by how little comic books there are at “comic book” conventions these days, and also embarrassed by all these people in costumes. But, what the hell…

That’s my long time pal Dave Scroggy (we traded comics back in 1964!), Wonder Woman and me!

Though she looks like a cardboard cutout here this Wonder Woman was real , complete with aluminum foil wrist bands!

Yoe Got Mail!

Yo, Craig!
So, I’m the very last photo, huh?  Story of my life– bringing up the rear!

Anyway, it was good to see you.  Not great, perhaps, but good.

Next time I’m in NY I’ll certainly try to visit your castle– assuming it will accommodate my entourage.  You know, the usual group– makeup girl, stunt double, publicity staff, bodyguards, agents, manager, hair dresser and the ever-present band of worshippers, acolytes and devotees.

Would write even more brilliant stuff for you but I gotta rush out to an appointment now.  You know how Spielberg worries when I’m late!

Excelsior!

–Stan

Yo Stan,

As I recall that would be “Sam Spielberg” the shoe-shine guy on the first floor of your office building that you have an appointment with every Tuesday. Don’t forget to bring the brown wingtips! Anyway, I’m glad it was good for you– it was good for me.

Eggs benedict!

–Craig

New York Comic Con


Denis Kitchen, who is rumored to be a member of the Ernie Bushmiller Society. But, when I asked him directly here he flatly denied any involvement. Yeah, right!


Alberto Ruiz –I hate this guy because he can draw so damn well.


Mega-talent Robert Tonner showing off some of the exquisite figures his company, Tonner Doll Company, is famous for.


Bill Plympton. Bill always has a new great new animation show coming out and a bevy beautiful babes surrounding him–how does he do it?


Carmine F-ing Infantino off in a dark corner! Good thing I had my Flash!


Chris Staros from one of my fave comic book companies, Top Shelf, sporting his new “Britney” haircut. Trendy!


David Webster from Midtown Comics! Midtown Comics is a fantastic shop, but I’m not quite sure how to describe what part of Manhattan they’re in. Midtown, BTW, is a big supporter of Arf–thanks, David! David’s with Uriel Caton from Diamond Direct. I caught them comsidering joining the Revolution but NOT the Bushmiller Society–they’re no fools!


Stan the Man (my hero) and me, Craig the Boy, share the Secret M.M.M.S. Handshake at the opening of the Stan Lee Exhibit at MoCCA. That’s Ken the Curator in the middle. Matt the Exhibit Designer was off to the side, I’m afraid. Congrats to Ken and Matt and all at MoCCA for this incredible show! It’s a must-see, True-Believer! Excederin! (Or something like that).

Tomorrow: Wacky Wonder Woman photos from the Con!

Doh! It’s Doll Man Monday

More symbolic kinkiness from the “World’s Mightiest Mite”! This time our hero faces off in a “sword” fight with a crazed bow-tied villain. Go Doll Man, go!

Happy Birthday to Yoe!

That’s me! Got this great birthday card this morning from the studio gang drawn by our own super Luke McDonnell. That’s me as the Flash cause that’s one of my fave statues we just did for Dark Horse. Now I’m off like the Flash to the New York Comic Con. Will have a full report next week including, hopefully, pics from the Stan Lee party tonight at MoCCA. See you there?

Happy Birthday, Bill Holman!

If any cartoonist represents what the Arf books are all about it’s Bill Holman. The books have the subtitle of “The Unholy Marriage of Art and Comics” and Holman’s screwball Dada-esque comic strip Smokey Stover epitomizes that. I had a Holman cartoon in the “Artists and Models” section of the first Arf book, Modern Arf. Then one Holman cartoon was in the first chapter of Arf Museum. Now in the third Arf book, Arf Forum I have finally devoted a whole chapter to the Master. This chapter was based on information I gleaned from a personal interview I had with Bill in his home/studio shortly before his passing. And the visuals in the lengthy color chapter are rarities–photos, unpublished art–he gave generously me and a plethora of Smokey Stover strips. Happy Birthday, Bill, and Smokey Stover Foo-ever!


Bill was a lovable nut-case.


Here’s an unpublished illustration Bill did for a a volunteer firehouse I snagged recently–you’ll see it full oage in all its glory in the Arf Forum book.

Art marries comics in an unholy way–Smokey Stover (and Spooky!) are the zenith of that!

The Smokey Stover statue YOE! Studio sculpted for the Syrocco-style series at Dark Horse comics. Don’t tell Dave Scroggy Dark Horse, but I would have done this one for free!

It’s Wacky Wonder Woman Wednesday!

The Arf Lovers is taking a GIANT leap forward today!. My FIRST video, and I want to make it great. So for Wacky Wonder Woman Wenesday I am excited to present a 250 pound roller skating transvestite dressed as Wonder Woman skating to the “Heroes” song as a burly man signs for the deaf all introduced by a skinny-ass blonde in a bikini. I’m so very proud.

Britney Goes Henry!

What’s the buzz? Britney goes Henry, but she ain’t talkin’! I was just telling Madonna the other day how I hate name-droppers, but I want mention that I did Britney’s first ever interview when she WAS talking–about her music and her first CD that was just about to be released. This was for the magazine that YOE! Studio produced for the back pockets of Mudd Jeans. Britney was so grateful for the push that she kindly did an interview with me later when she had become a “super-star” for Big Boy Magazine/Comic which we produce and YOE! Mag the magazine we license our name to for South Africa. Ah, back when Britney was a “role-model”! And that’s the bald-faced truth!

Henry.
Britney.

When I did this interview nobody had even heard of Britney (this was before her CD came out, remember) so we didn’t even put her photo on the cover. When I interviewed her, she was brunette and flat chested, and told me about spending the most ever on a shirt–100 bucks!

By the time I interviewed her for Big Boy she was a Big Deal and we plastered her on the front. We cropped the photo close as she was starting to dress sexy in expensive clothes I bet, but still loved by Moms and young kids.

By the time we interviewed her for our South African YOE Mag (edited by Heather Proudfoot) Britney just needed one name and was starting to get “not-so-innocent.”
But she still hadn’t flipped her wig!

Doh! It’s Doll Man Monday! Observed.

Doll man was tied up (literally) yesterday during President’s Day, but here he is now, folks! After seeing the new Arf Lovers Doll Man feature last week Jim Ludwig wrote on the GCD-Chat forum: “Are you trying to pervert my pure mind? I never noticed the symbolism until you mentioned it on Arf Lovers. Now I will always be looking for them in Doll Man”. Bruce Mason sent a Doll Man cover and responded, “Seems fair. The attached scan (below) doesn’t have any symbolism, just good art by Bryant”. Tony Isabella came back and exclaimed, “Who are you kidding, Bruce? That erect candle with the dripping wax? It’s pornography ; ) ”

Yeah Tony, and I think that the candle holder is symbolic of testicles and the villain’s nose looks pretty phallic itself. May this is TOO much but even the flame looks like a symbolic body part to me (don’t ask which one). All in the day of Doll Man!
