And we're back!  I would tell you about the awesome time I had at WonderCon, but I did this post more than a week before!  I have no idea what happens yet!  Rather than cause a rift in the space-time continuum, enjoy this Mike And Mindy Guest Strip by the amazing James Anderson of Ellie On Planet X!  It is Guest Week after all...

Talk about karma!  Ruining naps is just plain wrong!  At least that mustache is more fitting on Mike than Mindy!

James Anderson is awesome.  There just aren't enough words to describe how amazing and whimsical his art is.  His comic, Ellie On Comic X, is always on my list of must see comics and looks like one of those cherished Little Golden Books from our childhood that we all love so much.  To see that same look applied to Mike and Mindy, it just melts my heart.  And that last panel...  Talk about a killer gag?  I actually missed it the first time around, it's so subtle!  Thanks again James.  Ellie and crew are always welcome to come get CRAZY!

Well folks, that's all for today.  We'll be back next time with the fifth installment of the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT!!!  This one's gonna be epic!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all next time!

And we're back!  And next weekend is WonderCon!  I'll have all the info on my table and rates/giveaways in next week's post!  But for now, it's time to travel to a land far, far away as we take a closer look at one of the most beloved fairy tales ever in the New Mushrooms!  Enjoy...

I'm not sure what's goofier here?  Jack's Mom being incredibly stupid or the fact that it's 15th century England and they seem to live in a modern town house!  Fairy Tales are always mired in such silliness like kids wandering into houses made of candy or bears leaving their homes without locking the doors.  It' almost as if we're suppose to learn through example or something!

I suppose it's time to discuss the elephant in the room here.  Yes, the Kickstarter campaign that Kim Belding and I were doing did not pass.  We tried our best but there just wasn't enough interest among potential backers.  So where do we go from here?  In another direction of course.  Kim and I are already discussing a new plan, something on a smaller scale that would actually come out more along the lines of a series of shorts rather than one whole show.  This plan will be more of a privately funded venture between Kim and I but will open it up for other backers should anyone be interested.  More details will be made available as our plans progress.

For those of you that did back us and help spread the word on social media, I wanna thank you all from the bottom of my heart, especially my good friend Chris Gobbett, who went above and beyond the call of duty for us.  Kim and I don't regret trying this and would (and likely will) do it again in a heart beat.  The only regret I do have on this venture is that we couldn't make it happen for all you awesome people.  Rest assured, CRAZY In Pink will see the light of day somewhere down the road!  So stay "Tooned!"

Well folks, that's all for this week.  We'll be back next time with a WonderCon special, featuring a New Mike And Mindy splash page, all my Con info and happenings and a look back at WonderCon 2013!  So get ready for some awesomeness!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all next time!

And here we are, the month of April in the year 2014.  JESUS NOOOOOO!!!  I TURN 30 IN A FEW WEEKS!!!  IT'S NOT FAIR DAMMIT!!!  I DON'T WANNA GET OLD!!!

Sorry, my inner child's just freaking out.  It's true.  This month I officially become an old fart.  Not really looking forward to it, but oh well.  You cant stop Father Time, so the best I can do is try to entertain him!  And what better way than with a new Mike And Mindy comic!  Went through a lot just to get this one ready, so I really hope y'all enjoy it...

Wow!  Guess you can say this comic definitely "Sucks!"  And poor Mike learns another lesson the hard way: Don't EVER mess with Mindy's hair!  It's very special to her!  And bonus points to any who noticed the colors on their undies are reversed.  Opposites do attract after all!

So ends another week of CRAZY.  We'll be back next time with a New Mushrooms that will have you laughing 'til the "Cows come home!"  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Several weeks ago, I got a very pleasant surprise in my inbox from the hilarious Crispin Wood of Small Blue Yonder.  I just couldn't let this one wait for an open Guest spot,  it was deserving of an immediate post, and here it is, "Rising to the occasion!  Enjoy...

Apparently, there's a helium shortage in the World today, and now we know why!  Shame on you Mike and Mindy, for making "Light" of a problem that's rapidly "Expanding!"  And if you're gonna land in Oz, at least drop an a witch when you land!  You might have gotten a better reception!  I swear, those two are just full of "Hot Air!"

Crispin Wood is a genius, flat and simple.  When I read his strip, Small Blue Yonder, I immediately think of The Far Side.  It has that same sardonic approach that makes the gags pop out even more!  When Crispin asked me if I was aware of the helium shortage, I simply joked it could have serious implications for Mike and Mindy.  Let's face it, inflation is their trademark gag after all!  Little did I know he was dropping a hint for what might be the funniest Mike And Mindy Guest Strip ever!  Crispin knows comedy and I'm honored to have him as a friend!  Thanks again Crispin.  Hopefully those "Airheads" didn't deplete all the World's helium just now!

And so concludes the month of March!  We'll be back next time with a new Mike And Mindy that I'm sure everybody will want to "Gobble" up!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back my CRAZIES!  It's Guest Week!  An The amazing Jack Slade of Scaredemy has come by with an "Out Of This World" comic that'll really "Lighten" up the mood!  Enjoy...

Wow!  Talk about an "Inflated Ego!"  Many have accused Mike of having a "Swollen" head, and this just confirms it!  I suppose stranger things can happen in space!

Jack Slade is the amazing artist behind the hilarious spook comic Scaredemy, the tale of a boy named Simon whose life is turned upside down when he enters his father's alma mater, which just happens to be a boarding school for ghosts, monsters and other ghouls!  Jack's artwork is so fluid and clean you can almost see it move.  And his stories are downright hilarious, among the funniest on the web.  He is also a very dear friend and one of my favorites to chat with on Twitter.  He even taught me how to draw folded arms!  Jack asked me last year to give his "Students" the CRAZY treatment, which you can see here!  Thanks again Jack!  Your talent is always "Expanding!"

Well folks, that's all for today.  We got another Guest Comic coming next week, a special toon from Crispin Wood that'll really "Lift" everybody's spirits!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

It's CRAZY, er, Cookie Season here at the CRAZYVERSE!  Normally, I'd be in hiding right now as every niece I have would be bombarding me with demands to buy Girl Scout Cookies off of them.  But only one niece still does it, and she's already met her quota so her mom laid off the demands!  Yup, all is well.  Or so I thought...

GAAA!!!  Totally forgot about my pals in the web comic realm!  Helen Madden has trained her daughters Pixie and Princess well!  Can't deny such cuteness! ARRRRRRGH!!!

I rarely make appearances in the comics, but this is a special occasion.  Last month, Helen Madden did a wonderful guest strip for the CRAZYVERSARY, inserting Mike and Mindy into her weekly strip Adventures Of A Cynical Woman.  Those goofy kids decided to take a "Bite" out of Pixie and Princess' cookie costumes, so I thought it would only be fair to let the girls have a little bit of CRAZY fun in return.  You kids are shrewd saleswomen!  Hope y'all break some sales records this year!

Folks, we lost a titan recently.  Animal House, Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Back To School, Groundhog Day...  Where would comedy be without these movies?  How sad would life be without these movies?  Flat and simple, Harold Ramis made this World a better place.  He was a huge influence on me and so many others.  Even now, weeks after, I'm still at a loss for words.  He was such a force in comedy, and yet was kinda this silent hero.  To be so good and yet so humble, he really set an example that so many young writers need to be following today.  I'm thankful that Mr. Ramis lived in my lifetime and thankful that he leaves behind such an amazing legacy and library.  Thank you so much Mr. Ramis.  May we meet on the other side.

Well folks, that's all for this week.  We'll be back next time with a New Mike And Mindy guest strip!  Until then, take it easy and I'll catch y'all later!
