Knighty Nite

I’m sure many of your FB’s saw “Dark Knight” last night around midnight… midknight? I hope to catch it this weekend. So far the review have gone something like, “Holy shit, Batman!” so I am enthused.

I’ve never read the “Watchmen” comics. I know, I will turn in my comic geek card at the door. I had been reading that die hard fans of Alan Moore’s anti-hero opus were worried about the movie not staying true to the source material, but apparently the trailer (that is showing with “Dark Knight“) is assuaging their fears.

I only know of the characters and story what Josh has told me and what I’ve read on Wiki, but the trailer was bonerific to say the least, even if their Batman analog is a freaking barn owl.

Speaking of Batman… just watch this and smile.

Guest Comic: Guest Comic By Keegan Mykris Of “Guinea Tech”

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.
