20th Anniversary

Get a Free Hardcover Book at Dragoncon!

You heard correctly. If you attend our panel “Storytelling in the Mobile Medium: Dethany in Virtu/Noir” on Sunday, Sept. 6 at 1:00 p.m. in Hilton Room 201, you’ll receive a free hardcover “Kevin & Kell” collection. (“You get a book! You get a book! You get a book!…”)  Not only that, we’ll raffle off original art. You can’t afford *not* to come!

During the four days of the con you’ll find me at Table 32 in the Artist’s Alley, downstairs at the Hyatt.

Just as a reminder, “Dethany in Virtu/Noir,” is an interactive novella featuring Dethany of “On the Fastrack” as she adopts a 1940s private eye persona to solve a crime in cyberspace. She finds herself in the middle of a gang war between two groups; one promoting online transparency and the other heightened data security.

Along with John Lotshaw and my wife Teri Holbrook, we’ve created a unique blend of words and images, available for the iPad. Readers will be able to make choices determining the direction of the plot, and we estimate that it offers roughly two hours of crime-solving fun. It’s yours for $2.99. Learn more about it by visiting its website here.

Alice in Wonderland exhibit

The Cartoon Museum in London has an exhibit spotlighting the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, through its depiction in comics.  I’m delighted and honored to be part of it, with the original artwork of the Fastrack Sunday strip of Sept 15, 2013.  It runs through November.

Vintage Kevin & Kell

Classic “Kevin & Kell” strips are now featured on King Features’s Comic Kingdom site. Go here, and pick up the action from today’s date back in 2009.

Longest Running Webcomic

After several years of research I can definitely make the claim you see at the top of the page. “Kevin & Kell” is without doubt the longest-running continually updated daily webcomic, having never missed a scheduled upload in almost twenty years.

Sheep Dip, Cryptwarming and GEST8

GEST8,” features all of the “Safe Havens” strips from 2011. See Jenny and Ming go through their pregnancies together, with Samantha caught in the middle.

Cryptwarming,” the new collection of “Fastrack” strips featuring the complete year of 2011, is now available!  See the lengths Dethany goes to in order to become a homeowner. Also included are bonuses like sketches from the housewarming party, and an interview with Dethany herself.

Get dipped! The twentieth “Kevin & Kell” collection “Sheep Dip” is now available for purchase. During this complete year of 2013 we follow the introducution of Rhonda’s living diploma, who turns out to have more secrets than anyone realizes. Fortunately his bodyguard Caniche is tasked with protecting his fleece.  Other events include Rudy’s appearance on “America’s Got Compost” and Kevin and Kell’s couples retreat.

Don’t like dead trees? E-books for the “Kevin & Kell” collections “MOUSCAR” and “Predator Camp” are now available for purchase here for $8.99 each.

2015 Kevin & Kell patron program

The 2015 patron program which supports all three of my strips, is now active. Every year I do a special parody print for those who contribute at the Light Herbivore Salad level and above, and  for 2015 I’m featuring the female members of the cast as Disney princesses, plus Angelique as Malificent.
