These are funny, Joe. Do more. Watch the misspellings (e.g. magnet, hideous).
you want to ruin my fun by making me proofread these?
i personally find it to be hilarious* that i leave the quality so low. yep, its part of the concept that you don't understand. you see, its too deep for you. jesus & joe operates on a level of thinking that states that there are no typos, and that every other usage of a particular words is in fact the incorrect spelling. and i totally didn't just directly rip off david rees and his copy/paste clip-art-esque formula... i uhh... y'know was super original and did it way before anyone else.
...yeah, or MSPaint doesnt have spellcheck and i'm not very smart.
I thought about recommending "Get Your War On" to you, but I can see you are way ahead of me.
I was recently researching syndication and self syndication because I found I enjoyed the editorial cartoons. King Features Syndicate had said in Artists and Graphic designers market that good writing would make up for bad art far better than good art would make up for bad writing. At the time, I took their meaning to be that if it's funny the characters can be very simplified but if it's not funny then you don't get syndicated no matter how great an artist you are. I imagine they are sticklers about the spelling though.
For a self published internet 'zine there is freedom to mess around with the English language, and I think that would be actually in keeping with a very irreverent comic. Don't be discouraged by me. I'm just some old clod who gets his writings critiqued so much it costs me a box of paper before I have a demurrer my boss will let me file.
Zimfin and Dadaist, thanks for the comments. There are more coming. Many of us never got our comics finished in time for the polls, so were finishing them a bit at a time to post here. I have 16 coming myself, and I know there are others doing the same.

Here's a little comic (my first attempt) I made as a present for my very special lady friend. Our dog, Punkers the Dog, loves her some eggs, and this is one of the many adventures she had (we think) before she was found by the shelter we adopted her from.
i should definately pop around here more often!
just wanted to post some pages here, get some feedback
more are on their way.They were done during the last 6 months, and are in chronological order
what i think: in the first few pages i didn't yet get the whole "black is frickin' black, not infinite shades of grey" thing, but jee, thats hard.
I've gotta find a way to avoid stiffening up the pencils after each pass.

I like the drawing here. To a certain extent you can let the inker worry about the "black is black" thing. Don't sweat the small stuff.
The one guy with a head like a cigarette butt reminds me of Cylinderhead. I can't find an obvious link using Google but Cylinderhead was a character in a Slave Labor Graphics work from the 80s, and of course his head was a cylinder. I thought it was pretty weird until I saw Chairface Chippendale.
