Hey everyone!
    As we continue our countdown to August 7, 2013 (which is Callous' 17th anniversary) I'll be featuring guest art below the regular comic strips!  Let's see what awesomeness awaits us today!

Dr. Rianne Nicah by Ronzkie Pacho Vidal

    This absolutely stunning rendition of Rianne is by the amazing Ronzkie Pacho Vidal of Ikos Komiks!  I get floored every time I see her work online and I was just delighted to receive this piece!  Her self-published comic books are also some of the more interesting that you can find on a convention floor.  Click on the link above to her website to see what I mean!  Also, do visit her page on Facebook!  Thank you so much, Ronzkie!

Dr. Rianne Nicah and Esber Fatum by Pilar Esber

    If you follow me and/or Callous long enough you're bound to hear about the incredibly talented Pilar Esber!  This delightfully pop piece featuring Rianne and her own character, Esber Fatum, showcases, at least to me, the unmistakably distinct voice of her manga-inspired art.  She's the artist and co-creator of a comic I write, M.O.U.S.E. - Multiple Ordnance and Utility Synthetic Entity and we guested together in the TGT podcast episode that featured our comic!  You can find her all over the web, so check out her deviantART site, tumblr, and the M.O.U.S.E. page on Facebook!  Thanks, Pilar!

    August 7, 2013 is Callous' 17th Anniversary! I'm opening the site up to guest comics and/or art to help promote other artists and comics!  If you're interested in being featured, click HERE for details!
