Anyone out there who digs my work, please encourage your local comic book retailer to order the holy heck out of this one, in hopes there will be many more to come with me and Marvel! www.comicbookresources.com/art…

Thanks again for the sketch back at C4. I'm throughly impressed with your art style, and I am very amused with Bodie Troll so far.

One question... Where and how did you come up with the idea of Socko? The whole concept seems like something you really took your time to think of, and is so deeply amusing, I can't stop laughing...

From one fellow artist to another, Thank You, and keep it coming!!
Hunter Jurkowski.

Hi, Hunter!

I thought having a medieval equivalent to the modern, manic media machine we have in our world would be funny in Bodie. I thought doing a media machine in the form of a Punch and Judy type puppet show would make it even funnier, so I created Socko to report the most sensationalistic news through comedy and violence--not too removed from how we get our news now!

I recently became aware of your work through the MLP comic, and I have to say I adore the expressiveness of your art! You inspire me, friend.

I also just ordered the Dead Duck and Zombie Chick collection on Ape Comics.  Amazon has sellers with a starting price for that book at about $200!  (Go ahead, look for it there, and see if I'm lying!)  Like the Southern expression goes, askin' ain't gettin'!  

Ape Comics was about $16 total--a lot more reasonable.

By the way, not sure if DeviantArt gave you a notification, but I made a bit of fanart (of fanart, technically :D) for you. Cutest Mlp comic to date!

Just wanted to give you props on the Mlp comic - that was SO cute! Hope you'll do more in the future ^^
(Minor crit that you'll probably get a lot: Background environments could be more in tune with the show. Don't know how much reference material you were given.)

heh, for some reason, even though i'd seen your work before, i didn't think to connect the mlp stuff with your name, even though your name was on the cover (i'm really bad with names :D)
looking forward to reading the issue!
