Free Bandette / Pimento story… by Jennifer Meyer

It's time for another free story!

TODAY! Huzzah and Presto! It’s the fourth free installment of Bandette’s Urchin Stories! Each of these stories is written by me, and then illustrated by some of my favorite artists (and I have pretty good taste).

In this one, Bandette’s dog, Pimento, stars in “Good Boy!” … illustrated by the super-most splendid Jennifer Meyer!

What story lurks beneath this adorable image? You'll have to spend NOTHING to find out!

This free strip is wagging its tail, waiting impatiently for you to read it at MonkeyBrainComics.com! Also be sure to read the other Urchin Stories, “Signs”, with art by Steve Lieber, and “A Hint From Heloise”drawn by Tina Kim! Also… the Three Ballerinas star in “The Call” drawn by Jonathan Case!

If you missed the link above, here is where you can click to get the story… FOR FREE!

But, please, I do not understand. Are not ALL things free?

More FREE Bandette!

Your free pass is sponsored by the new "iBelieve" (tm) technology. You have to merely think that you want this Bandette short story to be free, and then it will be. Offer not valid on thinking of other things you wish were free, like groceries, rent, and the phone number of that barista you've been eyeing like a moonstruck puppydog.

TODAY! The third bonus Bandette: Urchin Stories!

The Three Ballerinas star in “The Call” written by me and drawn by Jonathan Case, creator of of Sea Freak and artist for The Green River Killer and The Creep!

This free new strip is up and just waiting for you to read it at MonkeyBrainComics.com! Also be sure to read the other two Urchin Stories, “Signs”, with art by Steve Lieber, and “A Hint From Heloise”drawn by Tina Kim!

Because it was a strip concerning the 3 Ballerinas, I wanted an artist talented at drawing the ladies. I went with Jonathan Case. I did well. He did well. Well, well, well!

Me: Seattle: Convention: Just the FACTS

FACT: I'm going to be at the Emerald City Comic Convention this weekend.

FACT: All ostriches are creepy.

FACT: I... I... awww, man. That's adorable.

FACT: You will be sad if you miss this show!

FACT: I usually try not to be a dick at conventions, so you might as well say, "Hello!"

FACT: All creators are like this.

FACT: I'll be signing at the Dark Horse booth at 2:00 on Saturday.

FACT: I'll have a table with the rest of the merry ol' Periscope crowd, the studio of which I'm a part. Our tables are 2621/2627

FACT: I'm not sure about that last fact, actually, as the maps are a bit confusing, and in the words of my fellow Periscoper Ron Chan, "The ECCC website says that Periscope island are booths 2621/2627. I'm fairly certain that is actually wrong, and that it should actually say 2621/2617, as 2617 is actually the booth adjacent to 2621, and I don't see a 2627 anywhere on the floor map." So I might have lied to you about that last one being a fact.

Sorry.

My Three Favorite Metaphorical Children

Show us your Hype Dance!

As a writer, I begin to hype my favorite projects whenever I take too many or too few of my special pills, and today is one of those days. SOOOOO….

COLDER is available at the goodest of comic stores.

PREPARE TO DIE! is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all fine bookstores.

BANDETTE is available online from the wonderful folks at ComiXology.

And here’s a little peek at each of em….

BANDETTE! This year Colleen and I started the adventures of Bandette, an artful dodger, a thief, a teen girl who fights crime (sort of) with pluck and presto!
BANDETTE! It’s the adventures of Bandette, an artful dodger, a thief, a teen girl who fights crime (sort of) with pluck and presto!
At heart… it’s an adventure comic. There’s not that many adventure comics out there, and I love to read them, so Colleen Coover and I took it upon ourselves to MAKE one.
And then there’s my other type of writing. Well, one of my other types of writing. I love to write horror books as well. Right now, Juan Ferreyra and I are releasing our creator-owned series Colder at Dark Horse Comics. Above is one my all time favorite characters to write, the insane bastard known as Nimble Jack.
Look! Doesn’t the cover of the first issue just put a warm spot in your heart? Group hug, everybody!

Yes. Let. Us. Hug. It. Out.

And… OH LOOK! Paul does prose real goodly too! I’m super proud of this novel, and it’s been receiving rave reviews across the board (Publisher’s Weekly, Barnes & Noble, etc, etc) and I’m certainly going to be doing more novels. Some day a meteor will hit you. You know that, right? Do you want your last thought on Earth to be, “Oh shit! METEOR!” Me either. That has nothing to do with this book. It really IS a good book, though.

Here’s them links again!

Cartoonists Model Socks

I know that it’s terribly cliche for cartoonists to model socks, but here’s yet another batch of cartoonists modeling them, including me. The photos come from SOCK DREAMS (the company that makes half of my studio shiver with near orgasmic glee) after they stopped by Periscope Studio (aka: Studio That Paul Belongs To) and we did us some modeling. I can only say I’m sorry for spreading SO MUCH SEXY on your computer screens.

That's my bald head in the 2nd panel. And the dog is Sally, who is our unofficial mascot, and who ghost-writes about half my comics.

That ol' Periscope gang of mine. Look how well we model socks! I'm right there in the middle of it, rocking the "lights shining off my head" look. I wish you could see how awesome the socks I'm modeling are. Also, hey "Why Aren't There More Women In Comics?" people... note the look of Periscope Studios, please. There are a LOT of women in comics. There just aren't a lot of women doing comics of the type that women don't generally care about. It's like saying, "Why aren't there more women in competitive ball-scratching?"

This scares me. Probably going to use this as an author photo for my horror titles.

Seattle Signing! January 30th!

To all those in the Seattle area, or willing to fly in, or send their robot doubles, I’ll be doing a reading at the University Book Store at 7:00 on January 30th! My pal Mark Teppo will also be reading, so it’s a double shot of words that will amaze and surprise, and perhaps I’ll open my world famous kissing booth, despite local law enforcement and certain legal restrictions. (This is pure hype: I will not be opening the kissing booth. Sorry.)

HERE BE SIGNING INFORMATION!

I'll be reading from my 1st novel, which I wrote when I was irritated at the lack of character development in superhero comics, so I went n' solved that shit.

Mark will be reading from Earth Thirst, his newest novel. Him words be good!

Mark (right) and myself at an earlier reading.

NEW BANDETTE: FREE! Urchin Stories # 2

BIG NEWS! BIG NEWS!

We’re continuing our fun exploration of some of the secondary characters in Bandette, as part of my personal belief that there’s no such thing as secondary characters, only untold stories. This time the focus is on the hardest working and most-secondhand-smoke-breathing police officer in the story, Heloise!

Helping with the art this time is my friend, the lovely and talented Tina Kim. Thanks for art-ing, Tina!

Tina’s website is… HERE.

Okay… the FREE STRIP can be found RIGHT HERE!. You can click RIGHT HERE and GET A FREE TWO PAGE COMIC. There is also a link for the first of the free strips, and of course you can purchase episodes of Bandette for a mere 99 cents right here! I will humbly say that it is the greatest thing of all great things.

Bandette Cosplay

I can’t even express how tickled I am that artist Reetta Linjama (her spiffy website, HERE) dressed up as Bandette. It makes all the fun of creating Bandette comics even more funner!

Quite perfect!

Even the whimsical smile is in place!
