Rick and Mortified

The other night my son and I were watching a TV show called "Rick and Morty," which airs on the Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim" block. It's one of his favorites, and I was really enjoying it too - a genuinely funny and well-written sci-fi parody.

At one point in the show, two characters are stranded on an alien planet, wondering how it would be possible for the primitive apelike aliens they've encountered to have created a female humanoid robot and blaming the aliens' current backwardness on a huge war. "Geez" I thought, "that sounds exactly like a sequence from my comic The Moon Prince. What a coincidence!" Then they cut to a scene which looks very, very similar to an actual panel from the story (see below). "Hmmm - maybe it's not a coincidence!"

By the way, this is the third time I've had this experience with shows on Adult Swim - once by a show called "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" (see my post about it  HERE) and once by a show called "Eagleheart" (see my post HERE).

Either I'm paranoid (a possibility I'm willing to concede) or someone at Adult Swim is a fan of my comics. Either way, I guess I'm flattered.


  1. Really like your work, and I have bee following your blog for awhile now. One of your comics I really liked was about some guy who was dealing with zombies and kept waking up in different situations. I haven't seen this one in awhile, are you not doing it anymore?

  2. Hi, Bryn - thanks for the kind words and glad you like my comics. The comic you're thinking of is "Fantastic Life", which is a graphic novel. I stopped posting it once it finished, but you can see the whole story here:
    There's also a sequel I'm still working on called "The Rough Pearl". So far I've done about 70 pages, which you can see here:

    1. That's great, thanks for the links! :):):)
