Since the Tumblr account I’ve been using for the last couple of years is largely dedicated to promoting or celebrating the works of other people, I’ve started this Tumblr account specifically to showcase my own art- and designwork.

Another old BOO! collaboration with story by me and art by Manning Krull. This one was killing me in the writing phase, I loved the gag but and the premise but the piece never ended up sitting correctly. Eventually I realized the ending seemed too serious, like I had written this as a legitimate “blow your mind with that twist ending!” story when it had been meant as a gentle parody of such, so I added “DUN DUN DUNNNNHHH!” to the script, Manning did that perfect shot of the Grim Reaper, voila.

The protagonist’s name, although never used in the comic, is “Hero H. Champion, The Challenge-Beater”. The “H” stands for “Hercules, As Good As Or Better Than”

Slumberjack, from the first published BOO!HALLOWEEN STORIES many moons back. The poem, in case you can’t read this low-res copy:

Art and words by me, Calamity Jon

When you sleep and nightmares gambol
Through your dreams and cruelly scramble
Slumber dear into things queer
Which torment you with fright

Somnambulating monster shut
Your eyes with threat of murder but
Hope is near, for now look here
Comes Slumberjack, the King of Night!

Swinging fast his fabled hatchet
His steed so fast, no one can catch it
Your nightly fears are in arrears
Old Jack has heard your plight

With jabs and spears and roguish sneers
Good Jack has won this fight

Have no fear of evening villains
Slumberjack is apt at killin’
Even packs of diamondbacks
And sinister giraffes

The beast beneath your bed, Jack fears
It not at all, it’s left in tears
As in the sack filled up with tacks
Jack throws him for a laugh

And say your arms turn into snakes
Jack’s on the job! A piece of cake
To deftly hack them with his axe
And thin you down by half

He cuts and wacks you and attacks you
To trim your wheat of chaff

And if your eyes say something dire
Why, Jack would pierce them with a wire
So you needn’t peep things dark and deep
On which you wouldn’t like to peer

Such passion for your innocence
Results in worthy violence
Rwards you reap in ample heaps
Since Jack now calls you “Frere”

It’s Slumberjack, Sleep’s Dauphin
Mightier than any man
Who’ll maim to keep you safe as sheep
From dreams which end in tears

Let good dreams keep you while you sleep
For Slumberjack is near…
