Q:I bought a Bravest Warriors page from you yesterday but forgot to ask if you could please sign it? :) -Dave
For sure! Thanks for ordering!
I like this chill request, it makes me want to hunt down a Catbug page for this guy
hello you dudes -
My friend Paul Hammond’s comic Hey You Guys is really great - he took over my old spot in The Coast when True Story ended. I love this comic so much, it is beautiful and weird and funny.
PLUS he’s one half of the amazing screenprinting duo Yo Rodeo!
They make posters that you need.
anyways look at his stuff
Eugene Mirman had a pilot for Comedy Central. Not for a TV show, but an entire TV network.
It would be like Oprah’s channel, but Eugene Mirman instead. This is a clip of a fake movie from a fake interview on a fake talk show on Eugene’s fake TV network.
please watch this. it is amazing.
Q:Hi Mike, who does your colors? Was that something you arranged or did the publisher set that up for you?
If you mean the colors for the Bravest Warriors interiors, they’re done by the amazing Lisa Moore (usually up against some insane deadline). She’s a superhero.
If you’re talking about the Adventure Time covers, I’ve always done my own colors for those.
Bravest Warriors Vol. 2
A little bit of catch-up here. The Warriors’ second paperback comics anthology from BOOM! Studios is waiting to be purchased. Collecting stand-alone issues five through eight, the book features drawings by Mike Holmes, words by Joey Comeau, and a slick cover by Tyson Hesse. It’s currently $11.28 (cheap!) over on Amazon.
And don’t forget the awesome backup stories written & drawn by Ryan Pequin!
Q:Do you think of your audience when you draw a comic, or imagine someone reading your comic as you draw it? Or do you draw for yourself?
I draw my comics for homicide detectives, so that is who I imagine reading my comics as I work on them.
You know the type. Watched his mom and sister get gunned down over his dad’s drug debts and swore he’d become a cop. Last time he saw his father was when he had to testify against him, but it looks like he’ll have to pay a visit to the state prison to see if he can shake some information about Big Joe Paglia out of him. He has the highest clearance rate in the precinct but he’s never gonna make captain with that chip on his shoulder and that devil on his back. His marriage went to shit ever since he started hitting the bottle. He wants to stop, but he can’t shake that image of his partner’s body getting torn into by the Antelope Ripper after he tied the both of him up in the governor’s mansion. His new partner seems eager, but he can’t trust her yet - she’s a little green, a “diversity hire”, if you know what I mean. She might be the only friend he’s got, though. He knows what the other detectives think of him. He’s no rat, but when they all skimmed a little off the Rordiguez heroin seizure and he passed on taking anything, they started looking at him funny. Doesn’t help that the chief has been riding him ever since he disobeyed a direct order to lay off the mayor’s son’s drug charge. Doesn’t help that he has his ex-wife calling him ten times a day for alimony. He just ended a twelve hour shift by talking a tweaker out of murdering a baby he was using as a hostage and he wants to relax. He goes to his local, orders a shot a cold one, slams a quarter into the jukebox to play his favourite - Charlie “Bird” Parker. He opens up the newest issue of Lose. It’s the only good, pure thing in his day - the only ray of light in his miserable fucking life.
Q:Not really a question, but I just wanted you to know that my daughter finally got to the latest issue of Bravest Warriors last night and loved it! Here's hoping Impossibear and space chicken continue to enjoy their butter skating glory!
She’ll see more butter skates soon, for sure. I’m just finishing the next issue tonight - it’s gonna be big!
Q:How big are the original Bravest Warriors pages?
Good question! I draw at 8.5 x 14 for Bravest Warriors - the linework looks the best at that size, I think.
Q:I just sent an order to you, and I attached a note to sender, but I just want to make sure - can i get a page that has Plum? That would be A+ awesome. P.S. I love your work you're the best. -Caleb Palmquist
Absolutely! I’ll make sure you get a good Plum page. Thanks!
