And in every remake of Spider-Man, it’ll be the thief he didn’t stop. So?

David Willis captioned this “Comix Only For People who Can Read Sheet Music”…

I don’t have an actual Ewww comic for today, but I suspect that any explanation for this one will be suitably unpleasant.

Sort-of Synchronicity

Cidu Bill on Nov 17th 2011

A few weeks ago, on the CJA site, I posted an interview about the failings of campus security in dealing with assault and sexual assault cases. This morning, taking a break from typing it up for the magazine’s print edition, I saw this in David Willis’s Dumbing of Age:

Meeting Comic Strip Artists

Cidu Bill on Oct 14th 2011

It’s odd when you meet artists who occasionally draw themselves into their own strips, because you don’t always know what to expect: David Willis looked so much like the “David Willis” character that if I’d passed him in the street, I’d probably have thought “Wow, that guy looks a lot like David Willis. Or maybe Walky.”

Randy Mulholland, on the other hand, looks nothing like “Randy Mulholland.”

Francesco Marciulano also looked nothing like “Medium Large Guy” — but to be fair, he never explicitly said this character was supposed to be his stand-in.

This all comes to mind because I’m planning to meet up with Zack Weiner tomorrow at NYCC, and he frequently draws himself into his strip — and I’m just hoping he won’t be sitting behind his table naked.

I have shirts older than David Willis

Cidu Bill on May 17th 2010

I was reminded of just how old I am when I met Shortpacked’s David Willis at the Wild Pig Comic Con in Springfield, NJ Saturday afternoon. My wife came along for a single reason: to tell David she’s a great fan of the Batman gags he writes into his strip. He drew her this

which she’s going to hang on the wall in her cubicle at work. And then, since gardening takes up most of her free time in spring and summer, she of course had to buy this

Wild-Pig Comic Con

Cidu Bill on May 10th 2010

This weekend in Springfield, NJ, not far from where I live. David Willis and Randy Milholland, two of my favorite webcomic creators will be there, so how can I not show up?

I’ll finally see whether David Willis really does look like Walky.
