SLOM GOOEY #1




Here's the cover of Slom Gooey with some quick coloring ("quick" meaning done in about an hour). This will be re-colored once I prepare the whole comic. I feel like it should be a little nastier...

Oh man, this is great. I can't wait to read it.

Awesome, you might push the reds in the gums, maybe add some greenish, more yellowish highlights in the teeth to emphasize the nastiness. What's the book about?

Mostyn said...

cool. I love the teeth.

Fourthed! Looks wicked. I actually like the toned down colors, too.

"What's the book about?"

It'll be a 20 page book with multiple strips. Right now I have 8 pages of a Karl Alfred story, a 2-page centerfold that's about half inked, and a few ideas for some single page strips. I'm gonna try to work Dingus in there somewhere.

Color cover, B&W interior, 5x8. My goal is to get it into some stores like Quimby's and Chicago Comics that take consignment books.

Cool drawing Matthew, the book sounds great, good luck with it.

Mostyn said...

Hey matt. Can we get copies before they are all sold out and worth hundreds of dollars? signed?

Matthew Allison said...

You got it! I was gonna do multiple foil-embossed covers with an Arthur Suydam zombie/sketch variant every 50 copies.

Actually I will be sending each of you copies once they're printed.

This really reminds me that I need to see dentist - my least favorite thing in the world.

Great drawing.

Yeah, the teeth letters are fantastic.

With the help of a Dremel tool and some codine, EVERYONE can have teeth like that!
