Barrel of Grease Monkeys

The monkeys are crazy & looney. Maybe they've spent too much time in a barrel but they are there to 'help' with car related issues, often with famous people and important events.

Okay, comic posts should be positive. This is not going to be positive.

Some of my health problems are coming to a head. Mainly diabetes and depression. My wife has been dealing with cancer this year and has surgery this coming Friday the 13th of May. So if you could keep positive thoughts and prayers for us that would be great.

I want stuff to be the best I do. Needless to say, this means things like shows are on hold for now, and updates on the site might be a bit off schedule.

I really try to give you the best comics and products I can. I'd rather the book bump back and give you a really good book than rush it. 

Thanks for. your positive thoughts. -Joe

Update So far she is doing well.

First off, please feel free to leave comments. I see that we have a fair number of readers here.

So big list of New Years Resolutions for Barrel of Grease Monkeys. First off I'm going to be starting to put together the second book. The big news with that is that It's In Color! That's right f for over two years I've been doing them in color and the only way to see them is in the book.

There are also covers to draw, artwork to make merchandise, hopefully, shows to go do, Covid permitting,  and maybe some sort of strip to keep this site full of art since it is slowly catching up with all the pages I've drawn.

Yes, It's a BiG list.

Wish you and yours a great New Year.

OK, I still got a Kickstarter going for about one more week. I'm at 75% funded right now! Please consider throwing in and passing it on. It's going to fullfill super quick.

My Kickstarter starts in just over a week. Nobody knows exactly what going at the moment. Much less what response to a Kickstarter is. I figure there are some people who are tight on money and can't contribute but there are other people with extra free time to read and enjoy this also.

I took the Kickstarter I was planning and split it into two Kickstarters. One now and one when things get more normal.

Going for a "Quick Kick"(TM) Kickstarter. It's going to run March 31 to April 15 and try to get stuff to people in May!

Other Kickstarter(s) will happen later.

I am set up to full fill really fast. The printer is in the U.S. and has already run these items in small amounts. I hope to have stuff for you THIS MAY! unless something major changes.

Please click the New Link and follow My Kickstarter.

I know when I'm not posting you are actively thinking I'm laying about doing nothing. Well, that's not totally true. 

We did make the Best Of CARtoons Magazine issue! Thank you so much if you voted. The Hot Wheels story was the one one that ran.

March 6-8, 202 I will be at San Diego Comic Fest. I will have prints and preview copies of my 1st reprint book. I hope this print will be done for it also.

That's right I put together a 60-page book of all the Barrel of Monkey stories through 2019.

By the end of March, I'll be starting a Kickstarter. (To pay for said book.) Please follow to keep notified and help us get more views. Share our upcoming Project, that's the best advertising!!!

PLEASE VOTE for me. To be clear you want to email with your favorite story to be printed in CARtoons Magazine #25. You'd want to email "I'd like Barrel of Grease Monkeys' The CARtoons Brothers" or something similar.

You should be thankful. this finally got me to break down and start to upload complete stories.

March 5-8 2020. I will be at San Diego Comic Fest and I will have a book out by then that I might Kickstart soon.
