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 m...

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...

Guest Art by Ferrari Ferrarez

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, November 21, 2011,

This phenomenal guest art of Cal Duck and the Retskaffenfaust-brandishing Rianne is by Ferrari Ferrarez!  Unfinished colors by yours truly.

This was actually a commissioned piece as Ferrari was at a nearby table during Metro Comic Con 2011.  I asked if he could try drawing my characters in his style and he accepted the challenge!  I was expecting a little sketch on a piece of paper but the following day he gave me this drawing which filled up an entire A3 sheet!  I gave him a free copy of my b...

Guest Artwork by Liz Staley

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Friday, August 5, 2011,

This epic guest art was done by no other than the magnificent Liz Staley who does the awesome comic, Adrastus!  Here she depicts Rianne in the fantasy side of Callous Comics, brandishing her sword, Retskaffenfaust!  In the background is the ever-mysterious Guardian Duck, Master Kalus.

Adrastus is a rockin' comic which is a sort of homage to the campy Japanese TV "mystical giant robot" genre. There's not much like it out there and recently it has been picking up a lot of steam!  So go check ...

Guest Art by Jess Warren

This adorable piece of guest art is by Jess Warren, the genius behind the delightful Borked Planet and Smellabell!

Jess was the inspiration behind the unicorn Bel Bean rode down a rainbow in the storyline: The Land of the Guardians.  That says a lot about her cheerful personality!  Thanks so much, Jess!

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...
