Longtime BW readers know the name Jerzy Drozd, co-host of the Lean Into Artcast and co-founder of the Art Soundoff Challenge podcast I take part in every November with other comic creators. (Mine is in v-log form.) It was Jerzy, along with Mark Rudolph and their podcast Art & Story, that restarted my creative energies after someone at the Transformers newsgroup I was part of linked to their interview with Transformers Animated art director Derrick J. Wyatt. This is why Jerzy is also referred to as the BW Virtual Mentor. Being friends with Jerzy is easy. Have a love of comics, a desire to create and promote the medium, and think the idea of Sgt. Slaughter riding Battlecat would be totally awesome. So we are friends. I’ve also reviewed a number of his comic productions and co-productions over the 11 years this site has existed.
Jerzy has started up a new project along with some fellow cartoonists, a cartooning game show called Super Comics Challenge as he and co-host Gerimi Burleigh challenge three creators to a series of challenges. In this pilot young creator Elisabeth, colorist Aaron Polk, and comic writer/artist Greg Schigiel are tasked with three different challenges (okay, I’ve used that word enough in this paragraph and I wasn’t even trying) for glory and fun. Enjoy!
