Tales from the Brain Jar, #8

Remember when we used to talk about convention sketches? All the great times we had before we got all caught up in hockey talk. It’s back now and today is a fun one. I’ve already mentioned Chris Moreno on this blog before. He is the artist who did the art for my picture and the one of Brandon and the cake. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you are at a convention and want a fantastic sketch, go see this man. Funny, gory, sexy, etc… He brings it all.

So after all this man crush talk about Chris you can see I got this fantastic Monkey in a Wagon versus Lemur on a Big Wheel sketch! This was done at Megacon in 2006. Obviously if given a choice, all brain jars would ride roller skates. If you’re unfamiliar with the characters, it is an epic story of two creatures whose hate spans decades.

Actually it is a collection of short stories where a monkey and a lemur due battle in all sorts of different settings and time periods. Kind of like a primate Spy vs Spy. It is hysterically funny and worth tracking down all of the issues if you can find them.

While I’m at it, I’d also recommend you pick up the Sidekick trade. More comedy gold right there; and also drawn by Chris. The man knows how to make with the ha ha. So the next time you are at a convention, check the artist alley. If you see Chris tell him Ken says hello and then get him to autograph pornographic comics he didn’t write….he loves that!
