A Positive Twist
    We were taught pretty early on that as doctors we need to gain patients' trust to get the best and most relevant information out of them in order to help them appropriately.  It seemed easy enough at first but after a few patients one begins to realize just how difficult it can be sometimes.  No two patients are the same.  I've gone as far as acting like a clown to get a patient to like me (not that it wasn't fun, because it was).
    Of course, every now and then we have t...

Hey everyone!
    Welcome to the afterparty!  I received even more guest art and comic strips so the celebration of Callous' 17th anniversary continues!  Check out what our guests have in store today!


By Gio Guiao Jr.

    "How you doin'?" Artists who are active in the webcomic community in my region of the world are pretty few and far between.  But it's always nice to meet someone in my own country who's also in this nutty webcomic world!  Gio Guiao does Lakan at Makisig, one of the insane webco...

Sunshine Share

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, November 7, 2011,

    This comic page was my contribution to the Indies Maximus anthology/sampler comic book given out last Free Comic Book Day.  It's significant in several ways.  One of the most striking is the fact that it's a longform page, something I'm not used to doing.  It's also a return to Black & White, as the book was printed as such.  Furthermore, the panels were hand-drawn!  In a way, all the back-to-basics was a welcome change from the ever-growing digital aspect of the production of Callous Com...

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, October 23, 2010,
Beginning the Halloween season for Callous is this guest cartoon by Dustin Reese, who writes and illustrates the excellent comic series, Plus One!  Considering this particular patient load, I'm surprised the ER staff is so well-composed!

Dustin has done several guest work for Callous in the past.  Check out his previous contributions HERE and HERE!

Be sure to read his sprawling pregnancy-to-parenting adventure series, Plus One!
