Draw IronHide Tom!

Because Free Comics need promotion, too!

This was Dashing Dean Trippe's idea. I showed him an early copy of The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom, and he was really taken with the idea of seeing how different people would interpret my minimally-drawn protagonist. He's hard at work on his version as we speak. So join the fun! Then the fine folks at AdHouse and I will present all the different versions sometime around May 6th.

If you need additional motivation, how's this: a free copy of The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom! It'll be waiting for you at your local comics shop!

What, that's not enough? Okay, howabout this: I'll send you a postcard image of IronHide Tom participating in the sports activity of your choice.

Here's some more Tom pages for reference.

I don't know how to say this without sounding like a geek, but I can't believe you live in Memphis!
I mean, I live in Memphis and you've done comics that I absolutely loved. My mind has been blown, and it never would have happened if it weren't for that pesky Dean Trippe. When he told me he was coming down to speak at MCA (which I didn't get to see) at your behest I had to see who he was talking about, and I couldn't believe it.
I just didn't know there were any awesome people here in town besides the ones I already knew. Much less, awesome on your level.
Okay, now that I've completely done my fanboy-ed out I'm going to go.

Holy Moly! I'm not just awesome, I've acheived some particular level of awesome! Thanks, Chris, you flatter the bejeezus out of me! We have a couple comics-related events at MCA each year, so stay in touch; you're invited to them all.

Citing the shock poor Chris just went through, I may finally be able to talk the lovely wife into letting me put a giant flaming beacon over the house that reads:


Thanks again for the kind words, Chris!
