As you know my wife’s grandfather passed away on Sunday. We are out of town for the funeral and I assumed there would be no comics for the rest of the week. Then I remembered there is a such a thing called a… how you say the word, “Guest Comic?” Yes, this is it.
I immediately thought of Fancy Bastard Keegan Mykris, who you will remember from his fantastic interpretation of Josh in the “Godspeed You Fancy Bastard” get up.
I am extremely grateful for his help and love what he came up with. More so than anything, I love his depiction of Josh. That’s really all there is to say about that. It’s just… majestic (in the package region).
Also, listeners of the HijiNKS Ensue Podcast will enjoy the reference to Eli’s sordid past as a child in Mexico. Doomed to off-brand Disney Movies (Peliculas de Disney!) and even offer-brand toys.
Keegan and Alex Mykris have a webcomic called “Guinea Tech” at Guinea-Tech.com. Head over there, check it out and thank him for keeping HijiNKS Ensue alive while I am away. I love his black, white and grey art style.
Looks like we’ll have another guest comic on Friday, then hopefully I’ll be able to return home and get back to drawing for Monday’s comic.
Thank you all for your comments, Tweets and emails of support. I really do appreciate it.
Nice guest strip.
Joel, condolences to your family, take the time you need…and then get your ass back to work, so that I can have the funny.
Majestic, sure, sure. I mean, I see the tackle, but where's the rod?
Nice guest strip. I love the Mexican Batman toys.
Nice, at first I thought the can was a toilet paper roll.
The link to Keegan's rendition of Josh as a fancy bastard is broken: pretty simple typo.
wow, i'm impressed, you really managed to capture the grace and wonder that are my legs.
Hours of watching from the bushes I guess.
you look really sexy in that pink tank top
This comic puts the 'lolly' in 'lolly bag'…
I love the way Josh's shirt rests off his shoulders. His magical junk is scary, but entertaining.
I wanna know what the Joker can had (has?) in it before it became the Joker can?
Stubbly leg!josh was awesome… it's like he shaved his legs at once point and now its growing back in… wicked excellent
I figured it's been awhile since he left for the tryouts, but he holds out hope for "the call." Until then he wears his outfit, much like Tobias wore the blue paint. To be ready at all times.
That makes perfect sense… he seems like Tobias… in a way… sorta… maybe… StubblyLegs!Josh awesome anyways
I'm probably really over thinking Joel's characters.. 🙂 lol
I hadn't even thought of the Tobias thing until now. Nice reference. Very commendable.
I think its all bundled up rod.
Josh is definitely NOT a never nude.
Certainly more than I ever do.
Je, justo queria leer acerca de esto, investigando llegue hasta tu blog, exelente entrada !!! gracias !!
