Cool Jerk and I are taking a break

Hi, everyone— buckle in for some quick Cool Jerk news!


• Have you checked out the latest Cool Jerk? In the longest single Cool Jerk story arc, I wrapped up a 10-year dangling plot thread and put a bow on it, bringing closure to the whole “shabu shabu to go” story line from 2008 (!). This leads me to the next blurb.

•Due to the National Emergency that’s going on, I’m taking a bit of a hiatus from weekly Cool Jerk strips. Just doesn’t seem right to cartoon while, you know, we’re in the middle of a National Emergency. On the flip side, this will give me time to complete TWO all-new Cool Jerk books that will be back from the printers before I exhibit at the Denver Pop Culture Con (May 31-June 2). I’ll likely return to Cool Jerk later in the year (so long as the National Emergency ends, of course); I have some changes in mind that might make it necessary to call it “Cool Jerk 2.0.” Stay ‘tooned to my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for updates, random nonsense and such.

• At San Diego Comic-Con last summer, I unveiled the never-before-seen remastered college strips — Like, For Shore! The Complete Works. (Read more about the LFS! collections here.) The first printing is limited to 75 copies, and some are now available at the Cool Jerk store!

• Cool Jerk will be at Southern California Comics (Kearny Mesa, San Diego) on May 4 for Free Comic Book Day. In the spirit of the day, I will legit have about 25 Cool Jerk books available for FREE. And I’ll have other items for sale, too (such as Like, For Shore! numbered collections, enamel pins, canvas panels, t-shirts and other stuff)! Selling merch means I can fund the next book. And speaking of…

• Work is well underway on the new Cool Jerk collection. These things take time but I intend to have it off to the printers in late 2019 or early 2020. Its name: Cool Jerk Vol. 5: WUAAARGH.

Thanks for reading, stick around and I hope to see you online (and/or at FCBD, Denver and/or San Diego Comic-Con)!
