The Down Side is BACK!

Once upon a time (in 2002 or so) I started a comic strip called "The Down Side."

(The title was in homage to Mel Brooks  -- quoting Spaceballs -- and not Gary Larson, but I'm certainly not above raising the Far Side in tribute.)

Anyways, the strip was basically a sitcom about the residents of an apartment complex. I may bring that concept back to the fore, but for now, The Down Side is mostly whatever silly joke pops into my head at the time I sit down to draw. (Though the Saint brothers have popped up in a few strips already...)

The reboot of the comic came back in December, when I started to do 2 comics a week over at my Patreon page (http://www.patreon.com/erikburnham) just to have some ready content available... and the other day I finally decided to get going on my plans to share them with non-patrons, too! 

The strips will be a month or so behind Patreon, but you can read them for free over on twitter at: 


Follow! 

Like! 

Share! 

And thank you for all of it.

Introducing the Friendly Neighborhood Webhead Podcast

It's been a wild and wacky time here in the world since the great Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown of 2020; I had to pause some work projects, but found plenty of things to fill my time.

One of those things is a new (limited maxi-series) podcast with my friend Ethan Colchamiro. We're calling it the Friendly Neighborhood Webhead Podcast, and yes, it's about Spider-Man.

Specifically, in each episode, we discuss a 30 minute block of the movie before switching to a comics topic. Two episodes have been released (and should be available wherever you find your podcasts) with more ready and waiting. 

Episodes 1-4, all completed, focus on the first Spider-Man film by Sam Raimi. 

Please join us!

Follow us on twitter @webheadpodcast

Email us at cinemaspidey AT mail DOT COM.

And subscribe to us anywhere you get a podcast! You can check us out at our dedicated Anchor page!

We'd love to hear from you as we grow!

Two New Miniseries Starting This Month!

Hey, everybody!

Happy New Year!

I've been a busy fella lately, keeping up with my Patreon (at www.patreon.com/erikburnham), where I've had new comic strips and panels up every Tuesday and Thursday, as well as scripts and other content.

I've also been busy working on two new comics, both debuting this month, and you'll see more after the jump!

Responses to Marvel Action Spider-Man

They've been great so far!

I'll share this review, which calls us "the first hit of the Marvel Action line"

CLICK TO: Marvel Action Spider-Man #4 @ Comiccon.com

And there are still two issues to go! Christopher Jones, Zac Atkinson and I have had a blast playing in the Marvel sandbox.

We've shown J. Jonah Jameson, The Looter, Kraven the Hunter and his twin children so far -- and you ain't seen nothin' yet!

The book isn't available digitally, so you'll have to go to your friendly neighborhood comic shop to pick it up. If, like me, you don't have one, check out online merchants, such as the DCBS!

Or -- you could click here to preorder the collected edition!

Either way, I hope you give it a look -- and let us know what you think!

Guess Who Has A PATREON?

It was me, all along!

As of today, my Patreon is up and running. It's a platform wherein you, my friends and fans, can help support the work I do in between my comics deadlines.

New things. New stories. New comics.

In exchange, you can get access to content no one else gets!

A hodgepodge of a blog that could contain anything -- I started out with an unpublished 10 page silver age superhero pastiche script!

Access to prose output as well, once a month!

And anyone who signs up to the Blog or Prose tier by tomorrow... will get a free head sketch from me, sometime before 2020. (Details are on the blog, on a public post.)

I hope you'll check it out -- here's the link:

MARVEL ACTION: SPIDER-MAN

In the current DIAMOND PREVIEWS catalog for books shipping in February, you'll see a listing for IDW's Marvel Action: Spider-Man #4.

...And I'm writing it. (5 and 6, too!)

I couldn't be more excited to finally put some words in the mouth of the webslinger, and hope you'll all order a copy. (Because... I mean, I want to do more!)

Art is by the phenomenal Christopher Jones, who is drawing in a similar style to what he used for the Young Justice comic book -- so the art is gonna be worth the price of admission!

Hope you'll join us for the ride in February...
