Hey, it's been a long time since I typed anything here! The last update was before our last convention of 2015. Without further ado, here's our schedule for 2016!

Boston Comic Con
August 12-14
Table D-714

Aaaaand that's it. But if you go to Boston, you get to see us and Shatner! Pretty good deal. Our dearth of con appearances is due simply to the fact that we haven't been able to make new issues as quickly as we like. We're not getting out of the convention scene by any means, but we thought we'd take this year to regroup, so when we travel, we'll have more than a single new issue to show for it! We hope we haven't disappointed any fans at our usual stops, but we'll be back, trust us!

Underburbs #17 is well underway. It's currently in the inking stage, and I'll be handing pages off to TJ all month for greyscale and all that good stuff finally finished! It's been sent to the printers and will be available in August! In the meantime, we've finally uploaded and submitted Underburbs #12-16 to! So between these and the trades, you'll finally be able to catch up on the entire series in both physical and digital formats.

Thanks for reading and supporting our book for the last ten (oh, Lord, it's really been that long) years!


Issues 12-16 are now up on IndyPlanet!

We've been self-publishing The Underburbs since October 2006. If you're interested in reading it, simply drop us a line. We'll be glad to give you a book in exchange for money. Blunt, I know, but that's self-publishing for ya.


BCC 2016 - Big Boss Quickie by Underburbs
BCC 2016 - Big Boss Quickie
The last sketch of BCC, and it was a second Big Boss! I had the Snake Eater theme stuck in my head the entire time.

Here's an original character from :icongraphicginger:

We did a lot of cartoon animals this BCC.

Another commission for Bunnygirl Magician Usa's number one fan, :icontoonman1508:

I almost gave her boots instead of the heels just to break up the color a little more, but decided to stick to the character model, since he was mind enough to provide printed reference.

I bought Volume 1 and 2 off IndyPlanet and the files kept failing to download. So now I'm outta downloads. Any advice, fellas?

All I can suggest is to contact IndyPlanet and let them know. You're sadly not the first person to have this problem. I've been trying to contact them as well.

Hello, I just buy the fist comic of Underburbs (vol 1) on IndyComics, but I'm unable to read the pdf or even repair it, the file is damaged. I don't know if there is an other way to obtain it. I can send you the payement proof if your want. Thanks by advance.

Just read through vol. 3. Love the comic!

Thanks! I'm hoping the rest of the series will be up by the end of the week.

Just finished volume 3. Regrettably, I am unable to continue the series on IndyPlanet, as issues 12-14 (but not #15, oddly enough) are unavailable.

We changed printers a few years back due to our original one unexpectedly closing down. Since IndyPlanet is tied in with KaBlam (our current printer), issues we haven't reprinted through KaBlam aren't on the site yet.

Let me know when you've taken care of that.

Were you buying digital or physical? Because I can mail out physical copies.
