Old College Comics Store

We got a store!

… Online. Head over to our shop to order print copies of our comic anthology The Freshmen Fifteen and the first issue of our superhero comic Afterman. And if you’re looking to cover up some wall space, check out the art prints up for sale. We’ve got a page of art from Afterman illustrated by Jeff Chang and designed by Anne Lee, along with the cover art for The Freshmen Fifteen illustrated by Andrew Wilson and designed by Brian Dunning. They’re straight up COOL.

If you’re just looking to read digital copies on your digital device, you can always purchase our comics using digital money at Graphicly.com.

But guess what else? The Freshmen Fifteen is up on Amazon and iBookstore too!

AAAAHH!! SO HAPPY I COULD JUST DIE!!

Sexy Superheroes #4: RAWR-schach

Bet you never guessed this hard-boiled dame had a tramp-stamp under that coat! She may not have the best people skills, but she sure is a cheap date. Can of beans and a spoon, and you’ve made dinner! I’m sure she’ll come up with a way to thank you.

“Oops! I seem to have misplaced my trench coat!”

Old College Songs: “Timeosaurs”

One of the perks offered during our Indiegogo campaign was to have an original song written and performed by Andy Kneis. We’ve already posted three songs by Andy, now here’s the fourth and final one: Timeosaurs! The astonishing tale of time traveling dinos! Featuring myself as a meteor, Joe Bryant as the lead dino, Andy as the narrator, and an amazing performance by Katy Parker as a pig–the song is exactly as the tag line above says: “bodaciously cretaceous!”

Seriously, Katy needs to drop more flows over Andy’s fat beats and break into that rap game.

Sexy Superheroes #3: Dr. Strangely Attractive

Does she turn you on in spite of the goatee or because of it? That’s for me to know and a lifetime of therapy to help you figure out.

She didn’t go to 8 years of supernatural medical school to be called Mrs. Strangely Attractive!

Old College Songs: “Eric Techno”

One of the perks offered during our Indiegogo campaign was to have an original song written and performed by Andy Kneis. You might have seen this a while ago on our Facebook, but turns out we completely forgot to post it here on the blog. And a track doesn’t drop until it’s on the blog.

Created for supporter Eric Stolze, “Eric Techno” is a song about a computer in love with a human man. A man named Eric Stolze. If you ever meet Eric Stolze in the flesh you’ll understand why any human or machine would instantly fall in love and repeat his name in a blog post. So it’s a VERY personal song, and maybe by the time it’s over you’ll have learned something about the difference between techno and trance. 01001001 0100000 01101100 01110101 01110110 0100000 01110101 0100000 01000101 01110010 01101001 01100011

Check us out on Bleeding Cool & LB Post!

Yesterday, Christmas day, we received a lovely, lovely gift. Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool published an article I wrote about what we’ve been up to with Old College Comics. We’ve been fans of Johnston’s writing and Bleeding Cool for years, and they even published an article Eric Bryan wrote for our blog not too long ago about the end of ‘Hellblazer.’ So we have a couple of reasons to thank them this year.

Read ‘The Old College Spirit.’

Old College Classical

One of the perks offered during our Indiegogo campaign was to have an original song written and performed by Andy Kneis. When we asked Indiegogo donators Clare and Tom which style of music they’d like for their song, they said classical. Andy quickly licked his quill and began scrolling away for hours. This is what he gave me. I shouted and screamed, “Andy! This has no words! It is not a song if it is not sung! Go! Rewrite!” Andy slapped me and said, “I can’t rewrite what’s perfect!” And the rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks for the support, Clare and Tom! Enjoy!
