I got a new computer! Yay! I am able to post new Schlubs. The newest Schlub will be posted this Monday.
Windows 10 has the Instagram app now. I created an account for the Schlub. I’ll be posting The Schlub daily on Instagram. If you’ve never read The Schlub from the beginning, now is your chance. The Schlub’s Instagram account is at https://www.instagram.com/theschlub/. The first one will be posted this Monday.
Thanks for standing by while I deal with my computer issues. In the meantime, I’m adding a few images from my new project, Rainbow Ninja.
Years ago in college I took an animation class at Clark College. I had two animation projects- create a cartoon about the color wheel and animate an internal combustion engine. I created a red circle character. I forgot what I called him. In the internal combustion cartoon, I created a small character called “Slick Greasy.” It was a drop of oil.
The latest Schlub, The Schlub brother, Slick Greasy, visits him. On his shirt is a picture the character I drew in 1998. Slick Greasy lives!
A while back I blogged about my alien story- here, here, and here.
I also said that I finally completed the story in an old 8 page Zetaman comic I did as a fund raiser.
The comic was featured in a web show series I did years ago- The Real Adventures of Zetaman.

Well… I was wrong.
It has been redone, yet again. The latest version is on Tapastic at http://tapastic.com/series/Zetaman
The reason why I redid the story again was-
1. I didn’t like the art.
2. There were people parodied in it which I don’t care for in real life.
3. I wanted the story to tie more into Holly Wood: Space Diva as well as Issue #5.
The revise alien story ties into the origin of Extremely Conservative Woman. The inflatable alien in the first Z draft became an alien scout for the Z’nus. The fate of the alien will be expanded on in the future. And the revised story would explain why the Z’nu Queen hates humans so much.
Here is the first version of the Zetaman vs. Alien story.
I found this old comic doing some spring cleaning.
Years ago I did a second revision of my alien story. I renamed my comic company “Clark Comics” because I lived in Clark County and was going to Clark College.
The second story, Mighty Man vs. The Forest Animals, was redone for the New 52 Rightguy backup story in Naked Man Comics #2.
Cleaning up the art box and I though I post some random stuff I found.
An old version of the New 52 Rightguy vs. The forest animals. Like the alien story I was constantly revising this.
I found an old page I was going to submit to NEC comics to be a Tick illustrator. I don’t know why I didn’t send it in.
As a teen I thought I was going to create this masterpiece comic story with some heroes fighting against the world issues and stuff. I think it is a trap that a lot of inspiring creators fall in… wanting to be the next Alan Moore. I might do a small story featuring these old creations. Clearly a group not fit for the Naked-Verse.
No Schlub this week. I’ve been on vacation which quelled any rage in me.
Years ago I imagine The Schlub as a strip that took place in a candy store. At the time I did manage Sweet Factory. I thought venting about it would make a great comic. I didn’t imagine The Schlub as a webcomic because at the time the internet was fairly new (Late 90’s). I scrapped the project because I didn’t have it in me to vent for 24 pages about working in a candy store.
Here are some of the sketches. The Schlub was originally going ot have a co-worker who was crazy. I hired several people who I should not have and it bit me in the butt more times than I care for.
I had a lot of messed up customers that would come in and dig their gross hands in candy bins. Sometimes I would wish for some EXTREME justice to be done to those greedy candy pigs.
Crazy co-worker freaking out. Also, The Schlub would ride the MAX. I rode the MAX all the time back in the day. A great time to reflect on how much my life sucked.
I found my first attempt at a comic. This was drafted years ago in 1996. As a teenager I thought that my serious work would be dedicated to a character called The Element Man. I later realized that the character was too similar to the DC comics character, Captain Atom. So I dropped it.
I’m actually a bit ashamed about posting the rest of the comic. The comic has no story. It is filled with a bunch of aggressive statements about fighting with no plot nor a conclusion. I was a horrible illustrator as a teenager.
Triple Comics cira 1996
All done with sharpie markers folks!
Living in Bethel, CT, I thought one day I’d be living in New York. God, what is up with the chin?!?
My lack of perspective… literally. That phone booth is way off base.
Of course, as a teenage, anything with swords was edgy.
