Moved my blog from Google's Blogger to my own domain. I've also restricted Facebook posts to a weekly blurb. If you'd like to be added to a list to receive major news, like if a new book drops, just send me your email address to mh@marchansenstuff.com.

Meanwhile, when I finish coloring the cover for Ralph Snart Adventures #7, I'll update the store link.

Latest Poop 04-16-19

Just finished writing, layouts and lettering for RSA #8. Final part of the Frump Trilogy.

Ralph, Doofus and Fat Louie are on the lam after Ralph killed Vladimir Poopin and put President Frump in a coma (with Fat Louie's unknowing help). Foreign spies turn Frump into a 25-foot tall monster with only one thought on it's mind -- KILL SNART. Ralph also finds love (love is a loose term here). Doctor Goot cameo.

Beer #44 is priming, #45 is fermenting and #46 is in the planning stages.

Twitter Impressions

Something amiss with Twitter...
Not enough likes or retweets to justify 80k impressions.

Website Update

UPDATE: Total redo. Had to make initial page faster. Using JSON (and some tricks), rendering is now 30x faster - typical load time should be less than a one second. Also fixed some bugs and added some enhancements. Even works in IE 9-11. Good Lord!

Had to update php up from version 5.2 (old as hell) to at least 5.6, but is now compatible up to 7.2. Also, made more mobile friendly. Cut a lot of fat and a lot of bad coding. Overall, much more solid and secure. COOL!

Cartoon Confidential Cover

Forgot I even did the cover to this book -- Cartoon Confidential published by Malibu in June, 1991. I probably forgot because Tom Smith did such a crappy job of coloring my black & white line art. I think it came about after I had contacted Tom Mason at Malibu about publishing Doctor Gorpon in early 1991.

You can read it here.

It's A Hard Life

RSA 0314RSA 0314

Today I'm releasing Volume 3 Issue 14 of RSA. It's only available on my website for now, but it has been submitted to comixology.com. It'll take a month or two for them to process. Issue 15 will be released in March.

I originally completed issue 14 in April of 1989, and finished issue 15 in June. Also, during this time (from April through June), I was working on the 3-D issue 24.

Issues 14 and 15 of Volume 3 started out as self-parody but ended up turning into a semi-autobiographical farce. A lot of what appears in the issues; between RS and NOW, and myself and NOW, mirrored much of what was going on behind the scenes. Those issues turned out to be very prophetic in a weird and twisted way.

Ralph Snart Adventures being taken over by NOW Comics and being turned into crap was not simply my own paranoia -- it actually happened! Less than a year after I had written and drawn those two issues, I did quit NOW Comics (over money), NOW publisher Tony Caputo did abscond with the rights to the book, and then NOW did let hack writers and artists take over Ralph Snart.

Everything that I might've subconsciously been paranoid about at the time actually did come to pass. Hah! The good news is that I eventually did get paid monies owed (to Tony's credit) and many years later, I reacquired the rights to Ralph Snart (no credit).

Almost

Getting close to finishing RSA Volume 3 issues 14 and 15. So, shut up!
