A while back, my friend Lucas Turnbloom, cartoonist of Imagine This, came up with a really great character: Do’Raath, The Klingon Barista. Do’Raath works at Starbucks and serves up lattes, mochas and cappuccinos…with honor!
Do’Raath isn’t a regular character in Imagine This (he only appears from time to time) but he never fails to crack me up. Below is one of my favorite Do’Raath strips. Other Do’Raath appearances are: Here, and here, and here.
And if you have never read Imagine This, do yourself a favor and go through the archive. It’s a very funny strip.
A friend of mine, Mike Witmer, is the creator of a hilarious strip called Pinkerton. It features four main characters—Tucker (a rabbit), Buckley (a fox), Steve (a guinea pig) and Martin (a moose)—who live in a national park called Pinkerton Park.
I’ve been following Pinkerton since it first began almost exactly four years ago. Today is strip #600 – quite a milestone. Go read Pinkerton and have a good laugh.
This week Tom Racine of Tall Tale Radio interviews Scott Hilburn of The Argyle Sweater, one of my favorite single panel features. Mike Witmer (cartoonist of the hilarious Pinkerton) and I are also on this show. Scott talks about his journey to syndication and answers all the questions he gets about his comic’s similarity to “The Far Side.”
