Drunken Comics

The other day, my KFF and gaming buddy Furn Sai Yuk (not completely his real name) brought me a gift, the magical gift of drunken comics. Specifically, mini-comics made by Carlton Stevens AKA Cmonies, like Strong Style Jones.Apparently, Cmonies makes his comics only or mostly when he's drunk, sometimes with a drunk buddy (S.S.Jones is co-authored by Doug Slack) which gives them an expressionistic ink stroke look I enjoy, and a sort of faux-naiveté in the story. It's a lot like "outsider art", except that the lack of training and knowledge is simulated by alcohol. These are completely crazy comics where anything can happen and does, and starring potty-mouthed characters who may or may not be drunk themselves. Take Strong Style Jones, for example. He's a masked wrestler who drinks space whiskey in space and hallucinates a need to beat a Cyber Samoan and win the galactic title belt.
The poor Cyber Samoan is only trying to save a space truck full of puppies from careening into a star! Some very fun wrestling action, certainly more than in the only other luchadore comic I ever read.

The other mini-comic Furn handed me is Dynamite Comanche, a rougher (drunker?) effort about a Native American with a talking wolf pelt on his shoulders fighting the demon possessing George Washington.
Why would I kid about that premise? The comics are easy to order on Cmonies' Tumblr account, Don't Drink and Draw, and while you're there, check out his art, much of it devoted to wrestling and drinking. Because you have to be dedicated.
