Our Absurd Life: 09/18/20 – Disembodied


Hola Night Howls (I actually like that, what with the cartoon’s subject matter.)

I hope everyone has had a significant day.  Better than an insignificant one, right?

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon brings out my more macabre personality.  My first published story was actually an 8-page horror comic book story that I had written 25 years ago — I’m still waiting for the $240 check to arrive in the mail (I think the page rate was supposed to be $30 a page).  I should probably stop pestering the mail person about it.  That particular comic book publisher went out of business shortly after my debut.  It was an extremely exciting experience to get a comic book story published.  I still write comic books today and am currently collaborating with a friend from my childhood named Rudolfo Ledesma AKA Rolo in NYC.  

He’s a dynamite illustrator and I am always happy to write comic book scripts for his characters. 

I wish everyone a happy, healthy rest of your evening.

And if anyone recalls one of my favorite 80’s TV shows called Tales From the Darkside . . .
