>Comic Update: Sean Rose Indie Reviews

Well that didn’t work out so well did it??

This one took me a while to format. I wasn’t happy with it for a while! But I think it turned out presentable.

But man I know I say this every update but I gotta do some things to this blog. Things change-related. Maybe a new banner? More updates?? WE’LL SEE

>Comic Update: More Doodles

>Reviews reviews?? Yeah yeah. Expect a couple more this week.

UNTIL THEN enjoy some silly music doodles I drudged up once again.

Here’s another Mike Love:

Some Fall Out Boy:

A sequel to that Sufjan Stevens doodle from last time:

And EVERYBODY’s favorite Sgt. Pepper’s knockoffs:

Thanks to Steve Winchell for help with that last one. More to come I’m sure.

>It’s Back: Tom Petty Comics #5

>Argh!! Where are those reviews?? Sean Rose has failed his own blog. What is going on.

I don’t really have an excuse for my lack of updates. Working on comics, schoolwork, and flat-out laziness have prevented me from writing some classic album writups. And those are not good excuses!! Ah well.

Either way, during my inexplicable absence, cartoonist Stephen Winchell decided to pick up my slack and create some BRAND-SPAKIN’-NEW “Tom Petty Comics”!! Yes that’s right! Remember those? Well, if you do, you will realize that we have not seen a Tom Petty Comic since early September. If you don’t, well hey, you can read them all right here! Dang!

Last time we left Mr. Petty, he had just re-enacted the crucifixion of Christ, interrupting sessions for his classic record Full Moon Fever once again and distressing collaborator and confidant Jeff Lynne. How will this tale unfold? Find out below!

Wait what? A cliffhanger?? Does that mean there will be yet ANOTHER Tom Petty Comic next week??? Guess we’ll have to wait to find out.

Until then maybe I’ll actually use this blog to post my OWN work for a change. Hah! We’ll see how that pans out.

>Weekend Doodles, Vol. 1

>So do I have a review for you this week? No. (Two reviews? DOUBLE no, you idiot!!) I have had a phenomenally shitty week in terms of schooling, and I am still in the process of getting over the same cold that everybody else on campus seems to have (from apparently sharing each other’s phlegm in some nasty way that I don’t feel like going into). So all I have been doing is doodling comics about musicians. HEYO!

You all wanna read them, right? My dumb little comics about musicians? Yes, yes you do. Because you all think that I am supremely talented.

Here’s a little Oasis:

And some of our favorite Beach Boy:

And the ALWAYS well-dressed Mr. Stevens:

Have a nice Sunday, everybody.

>Comic Update: The Return of Kelsey Grammer

>A year ago I decided to thrust myself upon UConn’s Daily Campus comics page with Kelsey Grammer, a poorly drawn, awkwardly overwritten gag comic featuring a bunch of talking emoticons. I got sick of writing it after one semester, and after a summer of mulling about I decided that I needed to make a less shitty, more narcissistic comic – hence, Based on a True Sean Rose was born and I never looked back.


I don’t know why I got the urge to make a few more Kelsey Grammer comics. Boredom, I guess, was the main reason. And then there was Stephen Winchell, KG‘s lone hardcore fan, who begged me to make more at any given opportunity. Either way, they are here.

If you are curious, you can read all the old Kelsey Grammers in this handy-dandy Facebook album. They are kind of embarrassing for me to read right now, because they pretty much chronicle the painstaking process of me learning how to draw. And as such, they also show how little I have learned in a year!! Damn.

>Hourly Comics: A Great Adventure

>So in case you were not aware this Sunday was Hourly Comics Day, during which many funny and prominent web cartoonists decided to put their balls on the line and draw a HILARIOUS comic about their lives for every hour they were awake. And I decided to give it a go! So I will post them here and you can decide if it was a gigantic waste of my time or not. Either way I had fun!

Talented dudes like John Campbell (who came up with this whole “hourly comics” concept) and KC Green have taken it upon themselves to make these comics during the entire month of January, which is pretty CRAZY if you ask me. Doing just one day is tough enough!! God bless them.

Either way, here they be.
