Another Day, Another Convention


Had fun at Mighty Con in Wheaton on November 11, 2017! It's a cold convention, but nothing can stop Hypno Brain Comics!

World Conquest Progressing Smoothly

TOM'S REPORT: I just got back from the first ever Geneva Public Library Mini Comic Con! It was a fun time, and I'm so glad I was asked to be a guest. I got to talk to the talented Steve Palenica and he had some great stories about his experiences in the industry, and I also really enjoyed chatting about Star Wars, Godzilla, and Powerpuff Girls with everyone. Thank you to those who checked out my work and bought some comics, you all rock! Long live Hypno Brain Comics!

KEVIN'S REPORT: Here's some pictures I snapped. Long live Hypno Brain Comics!




Tom to be Guest of Honor at Comic Con!


Hey, everybody! Tom here! On September 24, 2017 I'll be one of the two guests of honor at the first ever Geneva Public Library Mini Comic Convention in Geneva, Illinois!

I was told the convention will be from 2-4pm, though the website says 1-4pm (so I'll be there at 1:00). I'll be part of a panel from 3-4pm: "Ask the Experts: Local Comic Creators Talk Shop". Fellow artist Steve Palenica and I will talk about making comics and all that good stuff, then I'll do some Q&A with you and your fellow audience members. Fun!

When I'm not busy with the panel, I'll be selling my comics, signing autographs, and making deals with Hollywood for the Freakshow Squadron Movie (right?). This'll probably be the comic equivalent of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan; I'll inspire a new age of artists.

Freakshow Squadron's Favorite Music Fun!

I took a break from erasing the pencils from Freakshow Squadron Comics #8 and jotted down a list of what I figure are the Squadron's favorite bands (real-world bands, not the ones I made up in the series' pages). I didn't put too much thought into this, it was just for fun. The bands are listed in no particular order, except their favorite bands will be underlined.


VERLOREN: Mors Syphilitica, Darkthrone, Cure, Burzum, Nuit Noire, She Past Away, Forlornist, Rammstein, Ramones

SUBMUTANT: Ramones, Minor Threat, Slayer, Municipal Waste, D.R.I., Nachthexen, Dr. Livingdead (first two demo EPs), Black Flag, S.O.D., Negative Approach, Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans (UK), Teen Idles, (and although he doesn't brag about it, he likes Beatles and Metallica)

MONSTROSITIC: Shonen Knife, cub, Beat Happening, Puffy Ami-Yumi, Tiger Trap, Ramones, Beatles

RANDOM MAN: Buddy Holly, Del Shannon, Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Little Richard, Ramones, Franky Valli and the Four Seasons

THE GLOBSTER: Movie and video game soundtracks, among them are Star Wars: A New Hope, Super Mario Bros (NES), Diddy Kong Racing (N64), Super Mario 64 (N64)

APPARITIONGEIST: I don't know, really... classical music maybe? Hmm...

RADIOACTIVE CHIMP: I guess I don't imagine RC listening to music. He's too busy eating and sleeping.

Ha ha, wasn't that fun? See any of your favorite bands on the list?
