An Assortment Of Unrelated Comic Stories

Brand new! This book is in FULL COLOR!

A disgruntled chauffeur, a rat-infested village, a crumbling old man, a narcissistic game show contestant, a zoologically Christian coloring book... What do all of things these have in common? Not much, really. Except they are all the subjects of recent comic stories created by Ron Ruelle. Some of these tales were cranked out under the auspices of the 24 Hour Comics Challenge, while others were written for anthologies with a specific focus as an assignment. Some have been published before, most have not. Most are all-ages appropriate, but a couple are a tad raunchy for the little ones. Sorry, kids! Really, this stuff is all over the map! READER DISCRETION IS ENCOURAGED!

Raunchy collaborations by Rex Silo and Ron Ruelle!


The Comic Necessities of Rex Silo

Rex Silo is a member of a species called cartoonist obscurus, an all-too-common type of starving artist known to cannibalize his own work (as well as that of others) for tasty, nourishing, and hopefully profitable ideas. (Some folks even claim they have never seen Rex and Ron in the same place at the same time. Hmmmmm...) In addition to the necessities of Food, Shelter, and Cable, the comics in this book are full of vulgarity, profanity, nudity, hostility, and all kinds of -ity things and should not be read by anyone under the age of thirty. Occasionally, the cartoons are sensitive and touching, but they are usually the bad kind of touch. READER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!

Let's go way back to the psychedelic '90s, when comics existed in things called "newspapers." Pretty wild, right? Well, here are a few years of Ron Ruelle's "At the Zü" Sunday strips from those funny pages, along with his online post-syndication weekly strip "Darwin & Co." If you were in the right frame of mind back then, you might have even seen these in color. If not... grab your crayons and go crazy, man. Either way, enjoy your trip to the Zü! THE CARTOONS IN THIS BOOK ARE PRINTED IN GLORIOUS, VIVID BLACK AND WHITE.

At the Zü Daily Comic Strips Volume 2

Beasts of burden come in all stripes and colors. There's the disgruntled underling, the scheming old timer, the obsolete dinosaur, and the vacuous slacker, to name a few. You'll find all of them here at ZüCorp, along with the saddest one of all... the underpaid, overworked, unappreciated zookeeper/supervisor. This is the second collection of the syndicated comic strip "At The Zü" which ran in papers worldwide from 1995-1998 (and online for a few years after that).

At the Zü Daily Comic Strips Volume 1

What can we learn about the human condition from a vegetarian lion, a haiku-writing monkey, a conniving zebra and a feminist ostrich? You'll find out when you visit ZüCorp, where the animals are running the asylum. This is the first collection of the syndicated comic strip "At The Zü" which ran in papers worldwide from 1995-1998. Whether you've been to this zoo before, or this is your first visit, remember... don't feed the animals. Especially the zebra.

Books for Insomniacs and Other Light Sleepers


A Collection of 24 Hour Comics Challenge Stories

They say nothing good happens after midnight. Participants in the Denver 24 Hour Comics Challenge might disagree. We have to disagree. We need good things to happen. Rules for the event are simple: You show up at the designated time and place with your art supplies. You are given a topic. You then have 24 hours to create a complete, coherent, 24 page comic story.

This book contains five stories by Ron Ruelle, each one lovingly crafted (or hurriedly scribbled) within those parameters. In this volume you will find tales of zombie space aliens, possessed bobble head dolls, hostile stuffed animals, evil twins, eight-year-old forensic detectives, and other things that only come to mind at ridiculous hours of the night.

This book features the story "The Rubber Band Theory of the Universe," which has never been published elsewhere, and four other stories that also appear in previous, hard-to-find 24HCC compilations.
