So. Ten years and a week after I posted the last Scam! comic, I present this semi-new Scam! comic. I started drawing the top three panels of this piece in July of 2006, but for whatever reason I abandoned it. Ten years later, I finished this page. It’s going to lead to a bigger story concerning what our hero has been up to for the past decade. Click on the image for a larger, readable version.
It feels great to get back into comics again. Since 2006, I have been out of the loop with sequential art (at least in terms of anything available to the public). Aside from Scam!, I’m also working on a regular series that will be announced soon.
When I look back on much of my older work, I cringe over the content. Quite a bit of offensive ignorance on my part. Though at the time I felt my intentions were good, my attempts at shock and satire fell flat. Time has turned a spotlight on these failures (at least for me), and it’s something I think about a lot. Maturity might not be apparent in the strip above (since it was started in 2006), but if I continue Scam! on a weekly basis, I do hope it better reflects the growth I’ve made as a person.
New Scam!, you marcies!!
How much of the above is true?

Chweet dreams are maitre’de (s)…
in other news- Ugh. I’m tired. I have this new routine (at least for the
next couple weeks) where I get up, go to work, come home around
5:30, go to sleep til 8-8:30, get up and get to work(at home). This
project romantic story is doing a number on me, but it is bringing
back the passion for drawing/coloring/et al… I just can’t wait until
Not looking foward to doing the whole tax thing next week. every
year I swear I’m gonna get them shits done early, and I never do…
To everybody that’s e-mailed, called, texted, etc…sorry if I haven’t
replied yet. I’m slow. I’m trying to stay in this work mode right now,
that’s why I’m not going out for coffee and all that shee-eie-yot. I’ll
probably break out tomorrow night, hit the beetle (as usual). Just
trying to save some dough, plus stay close to home. Once this story
is all wrapped up I’ll be oot and aboot again.
Oh! New ish of Mad Kids (Zack & Cody (w.t.fuck?) cover) should
be out. Go get it. If it’s not out, buy the last issue (I’m sure none of
you test tube babies got it yet!)
