|Pete Sickman-Garner lives!
We are very excited having just received the original art for Pete Sickman-Garner's contribution to Laugh Riot Comics.
It's been a while since the last "Hey, Mister" (Top Shelf) hit the stands and as a fan of his it was a huge treat to see new work. It is awesomely sick and funny. Thanks Pete!
If you've never read "Hey, Mister"... now is the perfect time to start http://www.topshelfcomix.com/creators.php?artist=28
You will be glad you did.
I'm serious... he beheads sting. That's how great these comics are.
