This book came out beautiful, and I really enjoyed looking back at this year of strips…a really fun and whacky year of Rip Haywire comics!
Amazon: Rip Haywire goes Kablooey book !
I hated to do this, but day in and day out I got bombarded with SPAM from my comments section. I just deleted over 1,000 spams recently and said “ENOUGH”. I tried all the spam stuff and it never helped so I had to screen every comment and approve the fan comments and decline the spam comments…if I never approved one of your comments it was because it was surrounded in a sea of spam comments and I missed it…sorry ’bout that.
If anybody wants to comment on a strip that they especially liked or laughed at or just said “huh?”
head over to
Or Facebook :
You win spam…you win
I thought this would be fun to share with Rip Haywire fans
I took the initiative to kind of explain Rip Haywire to new readers…following in the footsteps of the great adventure comics and created a Phantom-esque “for those who came in late…” styled week of strips for new readers whose newspapers picked up Rip Haywire…No idea if they will ever use this but it’s in the system and can be used. I’m now also trying to focus on shorter stories if you can believe it…this strip is always under construction until it starts to work for me instead of me working for it…still the most fun i’ve ever had…(besides Brevity) But not an easy sell to newspaper editors…but to the editors who take a chance on Rip Haywire I and the readers thank you!
Check ‘em out.
Anthony VanArsdale sent some fan art my way of Breezy, Rip’s newest gal pal. Anthony told me he worked up this piece from the 3rd panel of the strip she first appeared in. He also wrote jokingly:
“P.S. Breezy can give me a ride in her copter anytime she wants! That is assuming she gets a new one.”
Don’t worry, she will be getting a new helicopter soon. I love this! It has that little golden books type appeal to it, doesn’t it? It’s so cool. Thank you, Anthony! I can’t stop staring at it! Check out Anthony’s blog @ www.anthonyvanarsdale.com
