Cartoonist Steve Lafler launches a new weekly political comic at Patreon, just in time for the Trump inauguration. The veteran graphic novelist includes a “Manifesto Against Hate & Racism” along with his first weekly comics post.
Lafler employs his Dog Boy character as his avatar, commenting on the incoming Trump administration, Congress, and the billionaire class. “Dog Boy is ready to tear them a new one. In the most dignified way, of course” quips the artist, with a glint in his eye.
The cartoonist, best known for his Dog Boy and BugHouse comics series, also uses Patreon to release the first album from his punk band Radio Insecto, entitled Billionaires Banquet (a play on the Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet). Lafler will post a song per week for the first 11 weeks.
Patreon charges a subscriber fee as low as $1 per month for access to content from creatives.

Alternative Comics of Cupertino, CA ships (Sex &) Death in Oaxaca #3 in February, 2017, a 32-page comic book with color covers. The story synopsis:
Poor Eduardo. Our ancient Mexican vampire pal hasn’t had human blood for 100 years, and he’s feeling anemic. Luckily, Dora the feisty tamale lady and curvy Caroline are both coming to call on Eduardo. As for Rex, he’s lucky too—Gertie lures him into afternoon margaritas and a bootie call on the beach. Now if only Rex can keep his nemesis Skull Guy at arm’s length…
As usual when I put our a new comic book, I tend to think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done, but you can make up your mind about that when you pick up a copy at your local comic shop (or from Alternative Comics) in February!
PS – Be sure to check out my BugHouse ebooks at Alternative too!
My new art book Oaxaca Painting Service arrived today! It’s a 40-page perfect bound color book of my paintings of my adopted city of Oaxaca, Mexico. I bop around and paint street food, cactus, beat-up cars and as you can see above, a mezcal still.
You can buy the book at Lulu.com for $18.00 — a nice way to visit Oaxaca on the cheap!
This piece I painted from a photo of my daughter Geni walking the ruins at Yagul, Oaxaca.
I’ll put up more info soon about my book of paintings. I’ll have it ready to go by the end of July. Gotta get some sleep now!
My Kickstarter project to fund a book of my paintings from Oaxaca, Mexico has 6 days to go. Really hoping to make the goal of $1250.
