Hey, do you Gargs know what a Chick Tract is? They’re little paper pamphlets made (in)famous by Jack T. Chick, an evangelical, fundamentalist Christian publisher, writer, and comic book artist. They are “equal parts hate literature and fire-and-brimstone sermonizing,” according to Robert Ito.
Which means they are AWESOME.
Chick Tracts are so infamously bad– so one-sided and crazy in their dialogue, and so unabashedly simple in their artwork– “good” people are handsome and well-kept, “evil” or “misled” people are ugly and disheveled, for instance– that one can’t help but enjoy them as utter, unabashed propaganda pieces.
Naturally, as an Indie Comics guy, it’s only natural that I would want to subvert this format for the joy and pleasure of promoting independent comics! Namely, the Two Gargoyles line!
Thanks to Mike Rieger’s art and technical expertise, Two Gargoyles has now produced its very own “Garg Tract”– A Litany of Vice. I’m preparing to mass-produce them for promotional purposes. Want one? Watch this space, and I’ll tell you how to get one of your very own!
The site has been refreshed, retooled and updated! Now you can see the latest pages of posted comics, including a snazzy thumbnail of the page; navigate instantly to any page of any uploaded comic series! Just use the drop-down menu on the right side of the page under “Comics,” and select the series you want; then on the following page, select “Jump To” to go to any part of the comic!
The menubar has been updated with the all-new, all-important SHOP option– now Two Gargoyles merchandise is just one “gimme dat!” button away– and with Christmas coming, fun comic booky stuff is available just in time for the special someone in your life– even if it’s you!
All of this is made possible by the talents of Mike Rieger of mikerieger.ca ! Major thanks for going “under the hood” and making things work! Mike also made the sexy, snazzy new slider graphics at the top of the home page that talk about our comics!
You may have noticed that there’s now an update schedule at Twogargs! Every Monday there will be a new page of Gloaming, every Wednesday there will be a new page of Twilight Detective Agency, and every Saturday there will be a new page of Diaperman! This will allow our fans to stay current and have their memories refreshed for our stories, as well as inviting new readers to get to know our comics and characters. Please, do spread the word and invite your friends to come to twogargs.com for FREE comics!
Occasionally we will have a “Sunday FUNday” comic, our own Twogargs-related webseries “In The Wings,” a series of behind-the-scenes gags about our characters’ lives when they’re not actually “in character” in their own comics. The newest one is up today!
I hope you’re all having a great weekend– and happy American Thanksgiving to our friends south of the 49th parallel!
Do you like dumb jokes? Do you like VISUAL dumb jokes? Then you’ve got to check out “Mike Rieger draws DUMB JOKES and he must be stopped,” or just “DUMB JOKES” for short.
Mike has long had a habit of drawing random puns, mashups, and humorous randomness for years. He was the first artist on TwoGargs’ humourous superhero series DIAPERMAN, and his wit continues to find its way into Twogargs’ scripts.
His first collection of art prints, his book “Modern Oddity,” hints at his humour but this latest art book makes it blatant. If you feel like a good laugh (and a great book that can be either a coffee table conversation starter OR a bathroom reader), check out Mike’s DUMB JOKES.
