Callous' 17th Birthday - Open for Guest Comics / Art!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, July 9, 2013,


    As many of you know, August 7th is the day the first-ever Callous comic strip was published way back in 1996.  That makes August 7, 2013 the 17th anniversary of the series!

    This past year in particular, with its ups and downs, was the most significant of the comic's history.  First, I made the jump across the seas to join the artist alley of a convention outside my own country at STGCC 2012, the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention (Facebook Page)!  It was a great experience and o...

Going on Break / Open for Guest Work!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, November 13, 2011, In : News, Announcements, Events 



    Hey everyone!  Early this year I anticipated that this blog post would have to be done toward the end of 2011.  Unfortunately, it has to come earlier than I originally thought.  So, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that I have to go on yet another break from producing Callous Comics until mid-January 2012.

    It's sad because the end of any year is a great time to be making comics and to be involved in comic-related things.  However, due to non-comic matters it is necessary to ste...

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, May 15, 2011, In : Callous 


On August 7, 2011, it will be fifteen years since the publishing of the first Callous comic strip!  The series has had a long and wonderful history yet, truly, it's all just beginning!

Nevertheless, fifteen years is a significant milestone and I'd like all of you to join Callous Comics in celebrating it!  Here are what I have planned:

Open for Guest Art / Comics

One of the features of the Callous Comics website is the Guest Art / Comics page.  I've been extremely blessed to receive great contrib...

Guest Art by Andrew Villar

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, In : Art 

Whoa! What a surprise!
The fantastic Andrew Villar who does the comic strip Ambush sent me this brilliant drawing of his titular character bloodied and bruised with doctors Rianne Nicah and Aimee Queens tending to her wounds, seemingly in mid-battle too!

Ambush is published in the Manila Bulletin, the Philippines' largest broadsheet newspaper by circulation.  You can follow Andrew on Twitter as @ambush007!

Thanks Sir Andrew! You rock!

Hey everyone! Happy New Year!

Well, it's January 10, 2011 and my break from the production of the Callous comic strip has ended.  That's right, we're back to daily comic strips!  Hooray!

Thank you so much to the wonderful guest artists who have graced the web pages of the Callous Comics website to fill in the gaps during my break.  Here they are and their respective comic strip contributions!

Schedule for the rest of 2010

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : News, Announcements, Events 


Comics update schedule:
As the year is fast approaching its end, my need to concentrate on non-comic matters have increased.  So with great reluctance, I have to put Callous on yet another break.  From September 23, 2010 until October 17, 2010 I cannot produce any new Callous comics.  Then from October 18, 2010 until October 31, 2010, I'll be updating twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays).  Then from November 1, 2010 until January 9, 2011, I'll be updating only once a week (probably Sundays). ...

Callous - Three times a Week (for now) & Open for Guest Comics

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, August 28, 2010, In : News, Announcements, Events 


UPDATE: September 5, 2010 - Due to the recent site design, I'm requesting that submitted comic strips be at an 850 px width at 72 dpi.  I've made the appropriate changes below. :)

I've reached a point in my current training that requires a bit more attention than usual, so I'll have to decrease my comic output to three times a week starting August 29, 2010.  Updates will be on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

The good news is that I'll be opening the series to guest art, comic strips, comics, ...

Call for Guest Art / Comics!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, May 2, 2010, In : Callous 

I'm in a bit of a bind when it comes to Callous for the month of May 2010 until June 11, 2010.  During this time I'll be undergoing a portion of my specialization training in a different hospital from where I usually work in.  Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to work on the comic strip while rotating there so I've reluctantly decided to reduce my comic output to one a week.  These will be the Sunday comics.

I realize that this comes in pretty short notice (I've been trying to figure ou...
