1977 the Comic – At 100

A month ago I put out a request to webcomic creators to share with us their view of themselves or their comic strip characters at age 100. I won’t be able to comment while deep in other stuff so make sure to give all my guest cartoons the love and support that you never gave me.

First up is Byron Wilkins of 1977 – The Comic. Why is Byron first…well because he was the first to send me something and by now he is wondering whether or not I would actually use it.

1977 explores the madcap life of four friends trying to make it in the Rock biz. The 70’s were all about the Kouchie and the Coochie so don’t click on the link if you are offended by sexual or drug references. Byron says of his creation “The comic is based loosely on my life back in 1977 when I was 20 and eager to be a “rock star” and ended up playing gigs at bars in downstate Illinois (the big time for sure!).”

Byron’s character Bud (hmmm wonder how he got that name) is a 20 year old Chicago native who plays bass in the band. Check out Byron’s site for more folks from the band and be sure to follow his TWITTER updates.

Thanks Byron!

Come back in 2 days for another new guest cartoon from Off Season!!   You can also keep up with me via Twitter. (just not now, I am busy I told you)

  1. Oh, I figured you’d get around to posting it! 🙂

    I was first by sheer luck that the day I saw your announcement I had some free time (a rarity of late) and this idea hit me off the bat. Yes, if casual sex/drug jokes offend you, don’t read my comic. It’s not that bad, but it was the 70s, as I’m found of saying!

    Thanks for posting it first!

  2. That’s super cool!

  10. Ha, bet you people thinks that’s an MP3 player he’s listening to . . . WRONG. It’s a high voltage device.

  15. Will it kick in??? Or is 100 too old even for viagra to cope with???

  16. Nice, some 1977 😀

  17. I meandered over to Byron’s place. Fun stuff! I think I’m going to become a Bud fan.

    I love this series, Bear.
