This is just the collection from last years batch.  Jon has been doing this for many years and introducing comic artist to new fans.  So how does the hardest working man in comics do it?  I don’t know True Believers, he is a man who is passionate about comics, making them and promoting them.  He is a fixture at comic cons all across California, trying to find new ways and new ideas to get his comics and others to the mainstream.

He is, as we speak, trying to get this years CRAZY cartoon experiment off the ground and show the world some new comics and even help fellow artists view their own creations in a new way.  Here’s to hoping we have many more CRAZY cartoon experiments in the future.

I hope you enjoyed this post from many great comic artists, maybe you were introduced to a few new ones here as well.  So Check out their work, just crack open a bottle or can of your favorite Root Beer and hit the web in search of great toons that will make you laugh, cry, sing and even think.  So until next time True Believers, may your mug always be frosted and your root beer always foamy.

Tune in next week True Believers for another post of the 2013 CRAZY cartoon experiment.
