Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, May 9, 2020,
Update: Deadline has been moved to August 30, 2020!

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all staying safe and healthy!
August 7, 2020 will be the 24th anniversary of Callous and I'd like to celebrate this milestone by once again opening up for guest art and artist promotion! But this time, we'll do something a bit more fun and perhaps help someone in need.

If you're interested, you'll be making the middle panel of a three-panel comic strip! Following the guidelines below, you can pretty much do whatever y...

Let's Celebrate 15 Years of Callous Comics!

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

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, ...
