The Comic Book

homepressbookscomic stripsstoreabout jefflinkscontact

In this romantic and erotic gay comic book, Carl Hanson and John Sullivan are two iron-pumping men who begin a life-journey together. Their path will take them into scuffles in which they turn the tables on bashers, and other timelines where they compete in the ancient Olympics. They debuted on Jeff's Muscle Studio, my bodybuilding and male art site, and currently appear in 5 self -published issues of Hearts & Iron and a web strip. On the Strips page, you can also read Paul Bunyan and Ursus Major, A Werebear's Tale, two other strips I'm currently drawing and writing. Enjoy the site, check out the store and purchase comics if you'd like.
