ADDANAC CITY Comics~ All a-Twitter

Hank the Heartthrob?

Twitter’s everywhere these days. It seems like anyone who’s anyone has a Twitter account and, boy, are they using it. You’ve got celebrities, newspeople, politicians, and even your average joe logging in on there.

Twitter is also the ideal chill-spot for bloggers and webcomic creators. Anyone worth their salt has made sure that they can relay their latest feelings, ponderings, and opinions instantaneously.

After sitting on the sidelines for quite a while, I decided to join the revolution and see what all the fuss was about. Last week, I signed up (it wasn’t as difficult or mind-blowing as I had feared). Then I went on a search to find all of my favorite people. I’m a newbie right now, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it. I like to let people know what I have upcoming for ADDANAC CITY, and whatever it is I happen to be doing at the given moment.

Twitter’s a great place if you like to be nosy and get up-to-the-minute information on your friends and/or fave celebs.

One thing I have noticed, though, is that Twitter can become very addictive. I find myself stopping what I’m doing just to find out what somebody else is doing. And nine times out of ten, something’s happening. It’s the Land of Instant Gratification; sorta like a ticker-tape of titillating trivia.

I can see how people get swept into it, especially while they’re at work. The ADDANAC CITY comic below depicts such a situation. I hope you enjoy it.

If you are a faithful Twitterer, you can follow the life and times of Hank Addanac and I by clicking here. If your days are as weird and/or interesting as Hank’s, I may end up returning the favor and following you.

ADDANAC CITY Comics~ I Beg Your Presidential Pardon…

Sometimes ya gotta take a break from saving the economy

Sometimes ya gotta take a break from saving the economy

My comic strip character, Hank of ADDANAC CITY, encounters a lot of people throughout his young life. He has an extremely bad habit of pulling pranks on the telephone. It’s a good thing that it appears he has friends in high places, because he’s gonna need ’em.

My fellow cartoonist, Bearman, inspired me to try my hand at creating an Obama cartoon. I don’t know if I did as well as he, but I tried. I don’t consider this to be a political cartoon even though it depicts a political figure.

This strip is, by no means, sanctioned by President Obama nor the United States government. I just wanted to have fun, and attempt drawing something different. I thought it would be kinda neat if Hank and Obama had some sort of interaction. Plus, who knows? Obama may visit ADDANAC CITY one day for one of his famous town hall Main Street stopovers.

Aw, man….the repercussions of that…. 🙂

ADDANAC CITY Comics~ Thank You All!

Stiletto-sharp entertainment

I just wanted to take a second to say Thank You to all of my wonderful ADDANAC CITY readers. You’ve helped make March a record-setting month for the AC website.

I’ve only been creating the weirdo escapades of Hank, Christie, and Tim since August 2008, and the webcomic series hardly has the audience and notoriety of the more popular “big dog” comics like Penny Arcade and PVP, but it’s been growing steadily month by month.

Well, my little unknown webcomic named Addanac City welcomed almost 9,000 visitors this past March with over 100,000 hits and page views. That may not sound like much, but I’m well-pleased. After all, the site received less than 2,000 monthly visitors during its initial release. I just hope that everyone who stops by each day will continue to enjoy reading Hank’s comedic situations.

Once again, thank you all very much for your support!
