Dinosaur Bands

Yes, after endlessly deliberating I have finally done some T Shirt designs. And by that I mean I have drawn two and then just dug up some old unused art for the others. Rest assured more will be added, especially if I get any requests to make t shirts featured in the comics available (although please note, I do not own the rights to Dr. Zoidberg). Trot on over to here to check them out.

Strange In A Stranger Land

Here we have the trailer for the new Hope For The Future Collection. Our last two trailers for HFTF were greeted with worldwide acclaim, and grown men were seen to weep openly in the streets and embrace their former enemies, inspired by the sheer awesomeness of extremely limited animation and a burst of some tasty tunes.

This is no different, as you can see, but this time we decided to write some lyrics in order to fully express the mind manglingly cryptic themes of this epochal comic book series. The ideal musical medium for this was naturally a vaguely glam rock mid paced guitar stomp, with plentiful harmonies, because, as Brian Eno says,  backing vocals solve everything (although he’s never heard my nasal rasp). Many many thanks to our resident musical director Oliver for putting the whole thing together, and to our pal Ben who played the bass.

Let’s not forget the real message here, which is BUY HOPE FOR THE FUTURE BOOK 3, which is something you can do at the UK Web & Minicomix Thing, next Saturday, March 27th at London’s Queen Mary University in Mile End.  You can also buy a bunch of our other crap, pick up our contribution to the Dino-Saw-Us project, get a sketch, or just say hello. We will probably have Quality Street. I also have a four page strip in the Dinosaur Themed Official Anthology, but that’s the last time I’ll be doing fully painted comics as it takes too long!

Even though our Be In The Next Issue Of The Comic and Twitter Feed Scavenger Hunt went down like a fucking lead balloon at November’s Thoughtbubble, we’ll be doing the same thing here, so if you want to appear in HFTF issue 13 pop over and buy something, or repeat something from our Twitter feed to us to get some cool free junk.

Cover Your Nipples!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

And now it’s time for some shameless self promotion. We here at Hope For The Future and Flying Monkey Comics love to give you, the British (and International) public the best in comics entertainment. But that shit’s hard, yo. So in the meantime, while you’re waiting for our glacial, Brian Bolland like progress on the next issue, why not console yourself, wrapped in the womblike comfort of one of our fantastic T shirt designs from Zazzle? Classic Rock fan? We gots Homo  Superior and Metallic styles!

 

WesternyTentacular and Forked designs for your ass. And you can’t get any more Hipsterlicious than our all purpose “That Band You Like” shizzle. Zazzle shizzle. Zizzle.

 

Also, cover your iPad, iPhone or Laptop with one of our awesome illustrational escapades. And that thing that never made it onto the fanart section of The Decemberists’ website.

 

and, as they say, much, much more. You can even get this stuff in the UK! Although why anyone in other countries would even be reading this is beyond me. Ahem. You can also request a design – want a T shirt of some fucker in the background of issue 5? Just let me know, Joe, we won’t judge you. Look, we iconoclastic unprolific comics artists gotta eat!
