Guest Strip: Doug Latino & Gideon Kendall

Categories:  Guest Strip

doug_tzDoug Latino’s earliest comic memories involve Mad Magazine, Mad paperbacks, and wondering if that Mr. Natural character he kept seeing on t-shirts really had all the answers. He also knew a couple of minutes in that the mom of his best friend at the time, Doug, made a big mistake taking Doug and Doug to the drive-in theater to see Fritz the Cat. He wouldn’t have gone if he had known about Crumb’s lousy film contract. He’s come back around to writing, giving it up shortly after college to pursue a rewarding career in newspaper publishing. You can follow him on Twitter at @douglatino.

Gideon Kendall always loved comics. As a youngster he copied Garfield and Doonesbury panels. He got really good at drawing the White House. Then he got into superheroes, and practiced inventing engorged fictitious muscle groups. Now he’s trying to get really good at drawing Doug Latino. He also paints garbage, works as an animation designer, and illustrates children’s books. He’ll do just about anything to earn a living, as long as it involves making pictures. Go to:

    Everyone knows werewolves don’t like lungs. They’re too spongy and give them gas.

    This is a pretty awesome job of illustration and it is true to form. Doug would certainly react like that. He was always good at telling stories. Great first shot. I can’t wait to see more.

    Great imagination, even thought that is exactly what would happen except for a silver stake or a wooden bullet, or something like that. Artwork is a perfect match, too. Good stuff.

    I have only known 2 werewolves, and they both ate a lot of lungs, and come to think of it, they both took Gas-X.
