Ed Classic Octopussy 5


So that’s the end of the Octopussy story line, but I forgot I had two more wrap up comics to go with it. Sunday and Monday we’ll have two more extra awesome comics. I hope you enjoy them.

Ed Classic Octopussy 4

Interesting fact about this story, this was the very first strip drawn for it. I drew off this awesome idea of Rabbit fight an octopus. I hadn’t named the octopus or even knew what he was doing. This strip was an introduction to Rabbit. I still love the way it’s drawn. John looks amazing and Rabbit’s blade in the second panel is amazing. I love that it’s covered in octopus guts.  This is beauty at it’s best.

The basic development of Octopus Johns started here in this comic.  This is where I started to flesh out the idea that he worked for Ted.  This story was also the first time we really get to see Rabbit in action.  It was only a month later that I started to work on the current version of the comic that is published now.  A lot of ideas from this strip was incorporable into the current strip.  Also some ideas were left at the way side, like Ted using lots of robots.  Ted and robots actually date back to 2004, two years before even ED the Business warrior was even thought of.  He was a mystery villain in my superhero comic Fallen Dove Boy.  Yes, Ted is an older character than Ed. It’s hard to give up a cool villain sometimes.  I hope you enjoy the next two weeks of this awesome strip.

ed 108 – end of chapter two

First I’d like to wish my Mom a Happy Birthday!  Hope you have an awesome one.  Make Dad take you some where nice.  Second I have bad news about ED.  I’ve been a little lazy lately.  Work has been slowly killing me and my moral to actually work on ED.  Ed will be taking a little hiatus for at least the next two weeks.  I know, horrible news, but not the end of the world.  On Thursday I’ll be posting a extra Political Comic, so two of those this week.  The next two week I have a longer ED classic story.  It’s nine strips long, so you’ll be getting an extra Wednesday comic!!!  Then chapter three should start.  I’ve started to work on it and it should be as good.



ed 107 – let’s be friends again

ed 104 – return of TED!!!

sixty-five – is this the twilight

The end of an era.  The end of chapter one.


Bad news indeed.  Now what will Ted do?  No company to steal from.



It’s Thursday!  The giveaway event is over.  I bet you’re all wondering who won.  The winner of the awesome watercolor is Jeni!!!  I know, who saw that coming?  No one.  Well I guess anyone who looked and saw that she was one of the six people to enter the giveaway.  Don’t worry, I promise to do more giveaway in the coming months.  I love to draw and I want to start giving them away to people.  Keeping reading Ed and look out for the next giveaway.

Enter the Hemi (ed the business warrior 36)

Oh snaps the return of the Hemi Clan.  If you remember from Ed the business warrior number fifteen and thirty-one, Ed won the business warrior belt from Hemi the third.  Who’s family held the belt for three generations!  The longest anyone family had the belt.  Hemi the fourth story is about to start…

Rabbit is your guy!

Tell your friends that ED and Rabbit are the coolest!  Who doesn’t want to talk about cool guys with big guts.  Plus we’ve got some awesome belts.  Belts that will rock your world.  They are super belts.

Ed the business warrior thirty-two

Doom is coming!  What is doom?  Why is it coming for ED?  Look out for big surprises in the the coming month.  Okay maybe not big surprises, but fun action with new evils.

Oh that Blake and Octopus Johns is up to no good.  What can I say.  I’m never up up good either.  Hope you all are enjoying the comic.

Ed the business warrior twenty-three

Did you know it cost a dollar to ride the bus in Bloomington these days.  That seems really high to me, especially for how far I would take it.  Just going downtown and back would cost more than driving myself.  Seems a little silly if you ask me.

special saturday sketch

I was going through my backpack this week and I opened the front pocket.  This pocket doesn’t hold very much, mostly just a couple sheets of paper.  As I did this I found this awesome sketch I drew last year when I was still in college.  It was a picture of Octopus Johns.  I love to draw Octopus Johns, and this is one of the first pictures I drew of him.  I always knew he was going to be a bad guy.  I love the tentacles, they’re always my favorite part of the octopus.  I thought you guys might like to see one of my first sketches of a beloved villain.

Ed the new comic #2

Who doesn’t need a hero?  I always need a hero.  So tomorrow is the big day!  The start of the four comics in a row.  Are you ready?  I hope so.  See you all tomorrow.
