Apes with Uzis (plus the yeti crab!)
Free Comic Book Day is just around the corner, and the 215 Ink/FUBAR Press books are well on their way to being a part of it in stores across the country. I'm in the process of lettering one of the 215 entries, an Apes with Uzis tale: the first part of a story titled "the Package". The first few panels are above, written by Mark Bertolini and illustrated by Peebo Mondia.
As for the story...well...you'll just have to wait until the first Saturday in May to pick up the book. Let this be said, though: it involves monkeys dressed up in clothes and riding motorcycles. And I'm pretty sure that's a Tick shirt our protagonist is wearing on the first page. So what's not to like?
Also, Henry at the very enjoyable "I Love the Yeti" blog posted this image yesterday, reminding us all that on March 22nd, 2005, the famed yeti crab was discovered. The world is a better place for it. Check out the blog at http://ilovetheyeti.blogspot.com/!
