    Hey everyone!  Here's a bonus comic strip for today! :D
    Looks like another year has passed and it's Dialogue Free Comics Day once more!  Organized annually by Noel Curry, he explains "Dialogue Free Comics Day" as follows:
    "Too often, when writing webcomics I forget that this is primarily a visual artform and so to emphasise that, I’ve set myself the challenge of posting a dialogue free comic on that day..."
    I've contributed every year so far and yet it's still hard to kick the...

Guest Art by Freely Abrigo

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, December 1, 2011,


This delightful guest art of Dr. Rianne is by The Manila Bulletin cartoonist, Freely Abrigo!  Here she dons a Cal Duck hat, which is cute in itself, but what stands out to me is her expression of utter glee!  It truly makes you feel her joy while it has you wondering what in the world has her feeling so great.

Such is the talent behind such beloved comic series as Kulas and Kapitan Tog.  I am very honored to have Rianne taken form from Freely's drawing hand!  You can certainly appreciate the c...

Sunshine Share

    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...

Accidental Doc

This comic strip is for 2011's April Fool's Day and features Desmon and Violet from Plus One by Dustin Reese!
It is apparently popular among cartoonists to do an April Fool's Day Comic Strip Switcheroo / Switcheroonie.  Last year I did one with roxxiiee who does the comic, Afrodite.  I had planned to organize a pretty grand one for 2011 but unfortunately it completely slipped my mind.

I only got reminded of the occasion at the non-recorded tail end of an episode of the TGT Webcomics podcast I c...

Guest Cartoon by Dustin Reese

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!

Guest Comic Strip by Steve Brute

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, September 27, 2010,
Yipes! This creepy guest comic strip is by Steve Brute, the man behind the Frightfully Shocking Tales of Spoons comic!  Thanks Steve!

It must be said, his comic is not suitable for people under the age of 15!  Be warned, naughty language, some violence, and general horror await you there!  At the proper age and still up for it?  Great!  Check out this chilling, suspense-filled and fun comic!

Guest Artwork by Dustin Reese

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, September 5, 2010,
This fantastic drawing of Rianne during her time in the Land of the Guardians is by Dustin Reese!  He is the great talent behind the incredibly entertaining and heartwarming comic, Plus One!

Dustin surprised me one day with this drawing in my e-mail inbox.  He said this was a quick scribble on his Wacom tablet and I think it came out great!  This is his rendition of a now classic frame from the "Lady from the Moon" comic strip from the Callous storyline, The Land of the Guardians!  Thanks Dust...

Guest Comic Strip by Dustin Reese

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Friday, May 28, 2010,
This great guest comic strip is by Dustin Reese!  He writes and illustrates the comic, Plus One!  Tsk, tsk, oh Rianne... she may be right but she's gotta learn to keep her mouth shut sometimes.  Or at least whisper...

Plus One follows Desmond and Violet as they weed through the many pregnancy myths and legends, discovering just what its like to be an expecting parent (and lately, what it's like to be new parents)!  Just a few of the obstacles standing between their success include telling f...
