Oh, Boy! Daily journal comic

This is my daily journal comic, "Oh, Boy!". I announced it here about a year ago (I think). Lots has changed in the style and format, and it recently moved from my website to instagram. I now post a comic every evening by simply taking a photo of my sketchbook w/ my phone and zapping it onto Instagram. This makes the comic a lot easier to keep up w/, as I was scanning each comic and coloring in Photoshop. I hope you'll enjoy it. Thanks, Jed

Meddling Auntie icebreaker comics for families

Bullies? Drugs? Puberty? Some topics are important to talk about but hard to bring up. For the past six years, I've been making comics for my niece to start conversations on tough subjects and soften harsh truths with cartoons. Now they're finally ready to share. Behold my total lack of qualifications. Appreciate the editing of Consultant Kristine Chester. Read the comics online or order hard copies for giving, sharing, and adding your own notes. No matter what, get motivated to break the ice with a kid you love. The only wrong way to talk about these things is not to talk about them at all.

I self-published my first comic, The Offbeat Path!

I've been drawing and posting comics for a while, and I finally had enough decent material to make a book out of it. It's 26 pages worth of autobiography, dreams, and musings on the culture I live in. You can download the book (a pdf) for a buck fifty from my Gumroad page, or you can go to my Tumblr and poke around in my archive to see most of the stories included.

Gay erotic comics in DRM-free PDF format // purchase & download for $3.50 or less through Selz

Hi, folks! I am Dale Lazarov and I write and edit gay erotic comics drawn by distinctive and evocative illustrators like Steve MacIsaac, Drub and Chas Hunter, among others. Our smart, wholesome gay comics smut is full of man-on-man carnality and sweetness. They don't have dialogue or captions so they don't require translation; just your horniness! ;-D As you may know, I have published four hardcovers of gay erotic comics published and distributed internationally by Bruno Gmünder Verlag. Now we're selling both original-to-digital and digital-reprint homoerotic comics in PDF format directly to readers online using Selz, an Australian payment processor that's committed to distributing our art online for purchase and download. As you can imagine, direct digital sales to readers through the internet allows us to circumvent censorious apps and unadventurous bookstores. Also, we both keep more money from your purchase and drastically lower the price of the comics to prices competitive with mainstream comics. So go buy some now! Purchase and download at http://dalelazarov.selz.com/ ; NSFW page samples are available at http://www.dalelazarov.com/ [more inside]

Resilient Brainforest: Comics by people who don't (usually) make comics

1. Everyone has stories to tell. 2. Anyone can make a comic (even if you can't draw) 3. People often surprise themselves by rising to a creative challenge. THUS: A monthly comic book (PDF) comprising comics I've solicited from friends and acquaintances. If that's not sufficient impetus to investigate, I'll add that the latest issue's theme is "Sex", and the resulting comics are appropriately NSFW.
