More from the vault...


From the land beyond beyond...from a world past hope and fear....
I bid you artwork now appear!
The year: 1990. I had just completed my first complete multi-issue comic tale starring my characters: Buce-n-Gar. This was to be the cover for the paperback edition of the collected five issue series. (Pardon the crappy logo....I was but a young artist then.)
For those of you wondering, Buce is a blue-furred, hulk-sized, two-ton animal called a Ferdag. Gar is a reptilian warlord from the primitive planet of Drendenshall. Together they are a legendary heroic force for good protecting the universe from the sinister Barrium Overlords. Wanna know more? Let me know and I'll post some pages from the old comic book they starred in during my art school days.

Oh I'm in! Definitely, please share more about this. It's fun because it shows us the early you. From it, we can see echoes of what you went on to create.

These issues were planned as a collected...but the company producing them had some difficulties.
I finished the entire story arc as well, handing in the final pages almost 15 years ago. These pages were lost back then (along with this cover piece here) when the print shop folded. They were recently recovered(!!) by the publisher and returned to me. I can't tell you what it meant to have the story finally complete after all these years!
I would love to publish a collected version now...just to have done it...

I am a little late to this blog of yours but back in the 1980s I was (and still am) a HUGE fan of independent comics. Particularly black and white, lower budgeted books of the rare type that featured good (or at least interesting) artwork.
I was a big fan of RAK graphics' books (yes, I know some things did not make sense, like Stephen Darklord's name) and my favorite RAK books were Buce and Gar and Stephen Darklord (after Wayne Losey took over) but Thundermace (yes, his weapon is actually not a mace) was one I loved as well (especially after Wayne Losey started assisting on art.).

I always considered it one of the greater tragedies of the 'B&W Bust' of the late 80s/early 90s that Buce and Gar did not last longer (Same with Roachmill).
I stumbled upon your new "Boose and Gar"(why the name change?) collected TPB at the Indy Comics POD site but they wanted $25 for shipping so I decided to google your name and thankfully was able to order from your store and save $25.
Your recent artwork/sculpting, etc. is freaking AMAZING! You were already one of the better artists working in indie comics back in the day but now you are just one of the better artists PERIOD!

Tony,
Sorry for delay...got your order and you post...
Thanks so much for the kind words. I have been meeting a lot of Boose & Gar fans in the last few years....I am currently working with a small toy company to help revive my characters in the next few months via toys and comics.
I will be posting new artwork and sculptures of the dudes soon, so keep checking out the blog...or my Instagram site.
