The Sunnyville That Wasn’t Part 2

The Sunnyville That Wasn’t Part 1

Ladies and gentlemen, we all have heard of things that could have been in popular media.  There were films that were conceived but never made, sequels unproduced, music albums never recorded or current creations out there that started out being very different.

There was a lot about my own Sunnyville Stories that was planned but not done.  A lot of creative works out there – books, movies, television shows, and so on – are like that.  Some ideas never came to pass or never made it out of planning stages.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll share with you ideas that never came to pass in Sunnyville.   Continue reading

Pirate Mike

This week, I said that I would cover some other creative projects out there.  So this week, we’ll kick off with the webcomic Pirate Mike.

Pirate Mike is a webcomic about a pirate who lives…not on the Spanish Main but in the modern world!

Joined by a crew of eccentric characters, Pirate Mike’s exploits are serialized in panels that would look right at home with newspaper comics like Peanuts, Beetle Bailey, Garfield, Blondie and so on.
