Next weekend is the Pittsburgh Comic Con and for me it’s the first show of the year! This will be the launch of the Ralf the Destroyer booth 2.0. We’ll be sporting a new banner, table layout, soft cover books, manga sized comic books, original comic strip art and possibly some sketch cards.

Today, November 16th 2010, marks the one year anniversary of continuously updated Ralf the Destroyer comic strips on this web site. To date that racks up 161 comic strips (mostly dailies and few Sundays). It’s not yet enough to publish a collection (which would be an awesome way to celebrate) but I think it’s a fine start.

For all of those out there who have been thinking they need to change their desktop wallpaper, you’re in luck! I managed to upload the very same wallpaper I put on my computer featuring Ralf the Destroyer on Webcomic Wallpapers.com. Best of all it’s free!
Yes, even though the purpose of that site is to raise support for hungry cartoonists (honestly, how much soup can one person eat?) I chose to make this first offering a freebie for you guys because I appreciate your readership. It comes formatted in several sizes and no strings attached, so go ahead and download a copy for yourself!
Hey there! Just posted a promotional video trailer to the “About the Comic” page (see link in top nav bar) for anyone who hasn’t seen it. I made this a few years back when I was using Flash 8 and had just started shopping my comic around the syndicates. I purchased a great sound track for it (which totally makes the video) from a royalty free music site called Shockwave Sound, so make sure your speakers are turned up!
Okay, looks like I’m set to start posting Monday the 16th three times a week. I picked up some ad space at Project Wonderful so hopefully that will generate some traffic as well.
For any new comers, Ralf the Destroyer is an all ages strip I developed for daily syndication (a long road I’m still traveling) after assisting on Nancy for 6 years. To that end it is created entirely by hand (no vector lines, no fonts etc) just india ink on bristol board. It is a labor of love and I hope that comes through the artwork.
