Happy HALLOWEEN, everybody, and welcome back to “The Backwoods”! Its been a long time coming for all you rabid mountain folk and creature freaks (you know who are). Well, like the header says, you can get your fix right here every Monday. So two days from now goes up page 33. I suggest you prepare yourself. Take your vitamins, eat your animal flesh, and do some body-squats cause its gonna’ get intense up in here. As we progress through the coming weeks I’ll be posting up not only more pages, but some options for you maniacs to go deep into the Backwoods itself. The details are in the process of being worked out, but I’m hoping to have various t-shirt options and art options available to anyone who wants to help keep this project going and going and going. So there you go, thanks again to everybody who kept harassing me to rev this back up. Its all for you.
The Backwoods fires back to life in one week! Prepare yourself for the monstrous conclusion to Chapter 1 with new pages dropping every Monday. Will Wendi and Ulysses prevail against the alien hordes and their menagerie of earthly oddities? I have no idea what’s going to happen, so I guess you’ll just have to tune in here to find out.
Thank you to all those people and especially my filthy Iowan brother, up in the homeland, for keeping an interest during the hiatus and reminding me with frequent randomness that I’m a turd for pulling out in the middle of a climax (dirty). So “The Backwoods” is coming back to finish the story it started, oh so, long ago. And will continue into a brand new chapter with an even stronger brew of the high mountain strangeness. It will be more of everything that made you wonderful people care; monsters, aliens, domestic disputes, historical figures back from the past,… the dog! The original site is currently being revitalized by my awesomely “beautiful yet deadly” wife and will offer the readers not only more content, but more ways to be involved with the project itself. So keep tuning in here for more updates or follow me on the twitter (@taddgalusha), as things get closer I’ll be tweetin’ and updating like a crazy person. Thanks again to all those folks who kept this alive! Mark your calendars, set your alarms, tattoo your face, cause on Halloween it’s gonna’ get real weird again. And if you just gotta’ get caught up on what I’m talking about, the entire collection of previously published pages is right here. Just scroll on up to the top menu bar and select “The Backwoods” to satiate that burning desire to experience what some have called:”I like the dog!” More is coming… prepare.

Hello everybody! Venturing into the city limits of downtown Portland, Oregon this weekend? Just standing there in the eventual drizzle on the sidewalk or vacant lot wondering to yourself, “what it all means?” Well, I have the answer for you! Stop on by the convention center and see me at Rose City Comic Con. SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! Actually it’s all weekend, but I’ll be there just sitting, gabbing, selling shit.
In all seriousness folks, I’ll be tabling at the convention doing commissions, selling originals, prints, and a few books. And if any of you beautiful people out there know me, I was endowed with the gift of gab by the late great Grant Galusha, so come talk to me… about anything, comics, life, the disheartening decrease in the average yearly snowfall of the Cascades. I’ll be there for you!
Ok, lets get down… to the nitty… gritty (Antonio Bandera voice).
I’ll be selling a lot of old stuff but there will be a lot of the new. First I’ll be offering a couple new 11X17s. Sticking with what’s becoming my Rose City tradition I’ve made up a new Godzilla print, which the original art will also be up for grabs. Hell, I may even auction it off.
Another new print on the table is of everybody’s favorite Mesozoic super beast. The apex! The monster that we all hoped to one day grow-up to be. Tyrannosaurus Rex! In this wonderful addition we see our favorite nightmare about to take a lunch break. It’s also an ultra secret art preview of my graphic novel with indie juggernaut, Oni Press (Ask me about it at the con, I may privy you to what’s to come in the soon future. If you’ve read this destroy your electronic device now!). A perfect gift for that budding paleontologist, Jurassic World junkie, or even motivational work place poster: “hang in there bud.”

Now if you frequent this site at all you may have seen these art pieces pop up here in the last year, so if you’re looking to decorate the walls with a little sex, violence, cuddles, or nostalgia prints of these newbies will be avaliable as well.
I’ll also be selling exclusive black and white preview copies of my new scifi comic: “Star Trucker!” Written by Mr. Jackson Rahl, who will also be present at the table with me, signing and answering the questions of your heart’s desire. If you check out the previous post here on this blog there is a bit of a preview, but just to keep that whistle wet here’s a little bit more.
Ok, Can’t preview anymore or I’ll be getting in some trouble here.
As always I’ll be open for commissions, so if you just gotta’ have a bad ass dinosaur, Wonder Woman or Weapon X Wolverine piece to hang over your bed (hint hint). I’ll be happy to provide. Swing by RCCC this weekend, I’ll be at table (wait for it) W3! Come find me, I will be waiting… loudly waiting with anticipation and a little perspiration (probably).
