We’re currently putting together an art show with our friends at Culture Brewing Co in Ocean Beach. We’ll be exhibiting new artwork, as well as prints of drawings from our latest comic book, Unemployed in Ocean Beach. The show opens on Friday, May 8th, and runs through the end of the month. The new comic can be found on the shelves of Galactic Comics on Newport Avenue in O.B., or at our Etsy store.
The Legend of Rudy McBacon is a self-published comic book created by Frank A. and Derek O. Eight issues of the comic were printed between 2004 and 2010, chronicling the adventures of a minor league ballplayer, superhero, monster slayer, Allied soldier, Old West gunhand, community service activist, post-apocalyptic scavenger, and intergalactic drunk. There is still a lot of ambitious rhetoric about putting together the long-awaited ninth issue, but so far only a few preliminary outlines exist. In the meantime, new artwork can be found on our online sketchbook, a collection of drawings, paintings and links to other McBacon-related stuff. We’ll keep trying to dig up some more old comic-con photos, too, you can see the Rudy McBacon crew mingling with other comic book artists, horror movie icons, various costumed weirdos and fellow comic book geeks. We’ve also still got our Cafe Press store going, if you’re in the market for a tasteless throw pillow. As always, we welcome your e-mails:
