A month ago I put out a request to webcomic creators to share with us their view of themselves or their comic strip characters at age 100. I won’t be able to comment while deep in other stuff so make sure to give all my guest cartoons the love and support that you never gave me.
First up is Byron Wilkins of 1977 – The Comic. Why is Byron first…well because he was the first to send me something and by now he is wondering whether or not I would actually use it.
1977 explores the madcap life of four friends trying to make it in the Rock biz. The 70’s were all about the Kouchie and the Coochie so don’t click on the link if you are offended by sexual or drug references. Byron says of his creation “The comic is based loosely on my life back in 1977 when I was 20 and eager to be a “rock star” and ended up playing gigs at bars in downstate Illinois (the big time for sure!).”
Byron’s character Bud (hmmm wonder how he got that name) is a 20 year old Chicago native who plays bass in the band. Check out Byron’s site for more folks from the band and be sure to follow his TWITTER updates.
Come back in 2 days for another new guest cartoon from Off Season!! You can also keep up with me via Twitter. (just not now, I am busy I told you)
