Chess in the Movies! #1 - Kitridge...




I giggle every time I look at this one.

Perhaps it is a bit dated, but I don't care. I had it ready and since I just finished Report Cards and I'm in the middle of Parent Teacher interviews I'll finish up the "Pawns Down the Middle" stuff next week.


See you next time.

Center Yourself - 019



New comic! I can't wait to put up next week's strip. It makes me giggle every time I think about it.

See you next time.

Play It Again - 018



Comic ontime! Yay!

I think that this is actually the oldest comic that I have up now. Even though I have never posted it, this is the last comic I made before taking everything down and starting over.

I just found THIS. From what I can tell, this book Learn How to Play Chess by Reading the Comic Book came out after my comic strip did. Not that it matters. Isn't it funny how two people created such a similar sounding product at the same time. And we're both from Canada! Life is funny that way. i was hoping to find out some more information, but I can't even find a contact for the creator. From the cover image it is clear that our comics are completely different in visual style and tone, but I would really like to get a look.

So stop reading and go practice already.

See you next time.

Playing Pawns Part 2 - 017



It's about time this went up. Sickness spread through the house like wildfire this past week and this is the first chance I have had to post #17.

I'm experimenting with using the computer for lettering. My font choices are limited and here is what I have so far. Any suggestions?

See you next time.

Power Mariah and Jack Hammer Play Chess - Bonus Comic



This one needs some explaining. I have created superhero identities for my two kids – Power Mariah and Jack Hammer. I am teaching my 4yr old daughter how to play chess and she told me that she wanted me to make Jack Hammer and Power Mariah into chess pieces. So here we are.

What’s with the dinosaur and killer robot pawns? Former enemies of JH and PM.

See you in two days for comic #17.
