I’m Going To Be In Pictures (Guest Comic By Didu)

Those Hollywood FOOLS! They have no idea how much bacon I can eat. I assume after the international release I would be paid residuals in Canadian bacon.

I am spending this week catching up on projects and preparing for Webcomics Weekend so, once again, Didu has graced us with her unique interpretation of the HE crew. I LOVE how she draws these guys. I am considering ripping off some of her ideas for my next character design revisions. I also enjoy the fact that her guest comics always deal with the actual people behind the HE characters and not the characters themselves. I think she bases her guest comics more on the Podcast Crew than the comic, which spices things up.

So, regarding the HE movie… SHIA EFFING THE’BEAF?! I can only assume he’s playing me. I know he draws a box office crowd, but come-fucking-on! Was Christian Bale not available? Did anyone call Edward Norton’s people? At least give me Paul Rudd or John Cussack. Jesus Titty-Manipulating Christ Shia Lebeouf Mother Fuck.

Alright, Fancy Bastards. Let’s get this movie pitch down before we take it to H-Wood. Who’s playing who? Who’s directing? What’s the plot? Drama, comedy, psychological thriller or straight up zombie love story? Gimme the over all arch for a trilogy? 20 years later what will the prequels focus on and how will they fuck up the canon? Product tie ins? Is there a talking CGI dog or just a cameo by Jackie Chan as Denise’s dad? THE COMMENTS BECKON YOU WITH THEIR SIREN SONG!

When Joel is Away… (Guest Comic By Didu)

The Geeks Will Play.

Starting today you will be treated to a trio of guest comics from your fellow Fancy Bastards. Regular HE programming will return on Friday 12-26-08.

You may remember Didu from about 6 months ago when she sent me this completely awesome hand painted birthday card for HE’s one year anniversary. Her guest comic features a slew of background in-jokes that only long time FB’s will be able to appreciate. If you look hard enough you might find a unicorn with multicolored gastrointestinal problems.

Didu is from Finland and does a fantastic music comic HERE. I also believe that because she is small and spritely and is named Didu that she is a magical comic drawing ice-pixie. Those are just my personal feelings and (probably) in no way true.

I am always so impressed by artists like Didu that can actually make awesome art with real art supplies. I am terrible with paints, pencils and pastels. Photoshop is my crutch, my prison (my own prison?). Didu’s comics have that special quality of being desceptively simple. They convey a ton of information and expression with few lines and broad strokes. I envy that. I feel like I have to draw everything in order for you to see it. Real artists can give you just enough info to let your imagination do the legwork.

UPDATE:

Didu posted the “making of” on her LJ.

Highlight the inviso-text below to see all the in-jokes:

Back Row: Uninvited guest from Joel’s Birthday, Iron Man, Didu, Boxcar Pete,SethRogan, because he’s in EVERYTHING these days, Unicorn Vomiting a rainbow

Front Row: Eli is drinking “Hooker Blood Remover” and pouring a beer on the floor, and denise has a Car on her face (all from Joel’s birthday party), Little Girl from the Heroes comic “There Goes My Hero,” Josh dancing with Dumbledore from… gay.
