This is something fun Chris Duffy and I cooked up for the current issue of SpongeBob Comics. Animation in a comic book, you ask? These gifs don’t do it justice—you’ll have to snatch up a copy to see the flipbook effect yourself. What are you waiting for?! Here are a couple vines (1, 2) that show you how it works.
All of these genius comic book animations make me supremely happy.
I’ve got a hairy story in BART SIMPSON #89 about mustaches, chesterfields, goatees, and soul patches! …And beards, and sideburns, and five o’clock shadows, and Fu Manchus, and mutton chops. But NO HILTER MUSTACHES, YOU HEAR ME?!?
I haven’t had any comics come out in the last few months since getting my staff gig at Nickelodeon, but that’s about to change!
I suppose it’s appropriate that my first story back is a SpongeBob Comics story! The fine folks behind SB Comics work so far in advance (to make sure issues always come out on time) that this story is just now seeing print even though I wrote it over a year ago!
My story is expertly illustrated by Stephanie Gladden (whom I’ve never met, but has me as a new fan)!
