Catte Belle and Macka and CAB Gets Inked 2019https://www.fuzzy-princess.com are each 20-page, black and white, minicomic, comic strip books written and illustrated by Charles Brubaker. Published by Smallbug Press.
These two black and white minis (the color image is a postcard) feature Charles’ 2019 Inktober work through a series of single and multiple panel cartoons. Familiar characters from Charles’ comic books and strips make appearances in short gag-themed strips showcasing Charles’ mastery of inking and storytelling! Each of these are great for a quick chuckle, but can also be viewed as a resource for learning about the anatomy of a cartoon. Charles does an excellent job of laying out multiple panels to set up a gag and then deliver with 100% satisfaction! A lot can be gleaned from these minis as well as any of Charles’ other comics!

If you like ADULT COMIX, then you gotta check out Dexter Cockburn’ Goofy Funnies! In these pages you’ll find nothing but cleanly drawn, unabashed, adult fun! Dexter really displays his talents as an artist and storyteller! The comic starts off with the continuing saga Space Rats, as Spunky finds himself imprisoned with a sex-starved space mouse that wants to be set free, but has a stronger urge for something else! Then in a mostly silent story, Fudster gives a buxomy babe a pearl necklace! Later Pippa Creme goes on a date and finds herself doing a little under the table work! Next Junior Ranger Becky has to hide Bosco Bear when an unexpected visitor cums a knocking! And finally Fudster gets it up again when he and a voluptuous vixen fill the pages with all sorts of lubricious loveliness!
The Space Odditoriumhttps://buff.ly/2V2i1A3 is 12-page, full color, digest size, Sci-Fi fantasy comic written by Chris Calzia with art by Dave Law. Published by Public Restroom Comics.
This is a standalone mini companion piece to volumes 1 and 2 of The Space Odditorium. The ‘70s psychedelic art style is what grabbed my attention to this comic, then the story hooked me! It’s pretty short but jumps right in without a lot of exposition. A member of a holographic family questions if free will exist or not as he contemplates how the last human can be used as a weapon against alien overlords.
The art is popping with bright colors, halftone dots, and unconventional compositions! This serves as a great introduction to The Space Odditorium series as it familiarizes the reader with the central character, setting, and showcases the impressive art!

Mr. Do ponders by a pond and takes a walk through the forest with a blacked-out butterfly. While walking he encounters a talking mask that ask a bunch of questions until a helping hand intervenes with a well-placed rock. A rat makes off with the mask and a demon takes an interest in Mr. Do! All this and Mr. Do’sMushroom Forest, a flying severed finger (that may also be the blacked-out butterfly?), neat underground art, strange stories, and the ultimate question Pink Floyd asked us all! What more can you ask for?!
