All you have to do is put on your favorite Geek t-shirt and then jump in a body of water , or if you dont have a body of water to jump in you can use a tub, shower or a bucket dumped on ya. At some point while doing this say or yell "BUBBAWORLD COMIX IS AWESOME". Put the video up on youtube and/or the Facebook. Then you are entered. I will be choosing multiple winners out of the entries. CLICK HERE for the youtube video explaining this and it also gives an example of something you can do.

I've been making regular updates again I tells ya. It feels good to be back in the saddle. I have six humor titles and three days a week to update. I will do three one week and the other three the next and just keep alternating. It's been working out pretty well actually. My page views have been steadily increasing. It's an easier schedule for me to keep also. I think it also helps the readers when they only have to worry about reading three updates a week. I have little time to read now and need to figure out when to read more. By only have the three updates that give the reader two days to get to read the comic strip before the next one goes up and he/she feels they they are getting behind. Be sure to spread the word that the Bubbaworld C
Having to use a wrist brace while I draw but I have started back drawing again. Three new strips are penciled in for next week. About to ink them in a bit.
I'm a cartoonist. If you've read me blogs or seen my comic blogs you may have suspected this. I write and draw many humor comic titles and put them on the interwebs , I do. The main six humor titles appear on my website at BUBBAWORLD COMIX . Usually they update every day.... a title for each day. I take the Sundays off now don't I. Anyway, years ago I started a Halloween special. At that time there were Halloween specials all over the web by cartoonists. Usually collaborations and such. Now it's not as common, sad really when you thinks about it. I still do it. I likes the way my special evolved over the years. TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD is the title I started with for the special them oh so many years ago. At first it was the brothers from the QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR comic strip telling tales from an actual appliance graveyard. I would do Halloween horror humor with the different titles I had. Then it occurred to me that I could do a cross over event. Yeah , that's the ticket. I would cross over QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR, MISSISSIPPI SWAMP DRAGONS, DAWN OF TIME, CAPN' GEEZER, SPACE REDNECKS & GOING BATTY into one horror humor special each year. It worked. I've done it each year on my BWC website.
The first year I had a bit of a happy accident. I broke the fourth wall with the CAPN' GEEZER characters. the Capn' and Bot have two companions traveling with them in his time machine. Zoe and Red Shirt. I had been drawing my strips for years and stockpiling them. I had even put them in a self published monthly paper here locally. When I decided to fully go online with me comics I started from the beginning of the strips I had been stockpiling. So in the Halloween special the Red Shirt companion mentions that he has not been introduced into the series online yet but was with them for the special. The Capn' replies that he's a time traveler and that Red Shirt will be a companion and that he can cross his own time line for a holiday special. So I uploaded that page and was pleased with myself. The following Thursday, the day CAPN' GEEZER updates on, I uploaded the CG strip and realized it was the first appearance and introduction of Zoe. Zoe herself had not even been introduced into the strip yet. Even though these are humor strips I tend to have story lines and occasionally will call back on past events. But I have decided that each Halloween TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD specials would have something of the future hinted in it.
One year I had the CAPN' GEEZER strip written way ahead of the one showing up on the web in updates. I was also way ahead on drawing the CG strip and had just been updating it and not drawing new ones for a little while. I had been drawing Bot's new body and getting use to the design when I did the Halloween special that year. I drew Bot in his new body and never realized it till after the updates. That was fine though. Thru time travel we got another peak into the future. Another year I was doing my comics in a new style that hadn't started showing up in the updates before the Halloween special was drawn that way, it also had the Emu that was about to make an appearance in each title. In twenty eleven I had redisgned the SPACE REDNECKS space ship but it was first seen in the TALES special for that year before it happened. The question is what did I hide in plain sight this time ( 2012 ) that will be showing up in the titles. I guess you're just gonna have to read the TALES FROM THE APPLIANCE GRAVEYARD : IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE special and then the ARCHIVES of my comic strips to find out.
A new QUICK APPLIANCE REPAIR is up....YAYY! The updates have begun. Also I will be at the Mississippi Pulp Con at the MS Arts Center on Feb. 16 , 2013. Be sure to come out and check it out. Follow the link and learn more about it.
I'm planning an interesting thing for the end of the year. I'm gonna work on writing my Halloween special for next year and getting it drawn early so I can start it on Halloween day and have it go uninterrupted thru November which will take up past Thanksgiving. I already have a ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER story written that I will be working on also so it can be my Christmas special. No , it's not a Christmas story it will just be appearing during the month of December. If this works out I will be able to take it easy during the three close holidays while not missing updates while working on new comics for the new year without being in a rush. Yay!
Updates have begun. Only one week of updates for the Halloween special left before regular updates start back.
After about a month hiatus from burned out computers and other things going on, I miss the second day of updates due to a lightning storm. I'm soooo lucky. Really, I am. My computer was plugged directly to the internet and it ran in and took out the land line plug. It didn't affect the motherboard at all and didn't affect the wireless connection. My friend the computer guru checked it all out and got my wireless router working again. Now to finish the twenty something page Halloween special that I was about to rename the Halloween / Thanksgiving / Christmas / New Year's / Groundhog Day / Valentine special , cause it started to look like it would take that long to get it uploaded completely.
I had my computer crash a couple of weeks ago. Amazing how six years of cat hair can clog your vent fan and burn up your processor. Amazingly my computer guru friend was able to retrieve my data to put on me new laptop. I was contemplating on getting a new computer anyway.... update and such.
Of course my program I use to do my website, it was drag and drop sort of thing.... no time to learn html and such, was gonna have to be uploaded on my new lappy. I haven't seen that cd in over six years, when I uploaded on my old laptop. It's a miracle I found it that time. I hated that program. Why haven't I changed programs before? ... time has no meaning to one such as I sometimes. Well, I went and found this Weebly.com place and am ecstatic about how it's doing. I've been meaning to redesign my website for centuries now.... well maybe not centuries .... decades maybe.... well definitely years.... yes , I have been meaning to do this for years..... screw it, Centuries sounds way cooler. I've been meaning to update for CENTURIES I tells ya.
Now I've just got to contact some folks and move me domain names to attach to my new website so everyone using them can find me.... I'M OVER HERE!! Hope they heard me.
