Cheri Borgstrom is a wonderful artist and storyteller who you've probably seen me talk about before. What feels like ages back, she ran a small, Blogger-based web comic which, after only a few weeks of reading, she offered me a chance to actually write for. Now, the offending collaborations have since went MIA - I lost my copies a hard drive reformat ago [D'oh!] and Cheri has since closed the previous site comic down, and went on to hone her craft [amazing, because she was already... well, amazing] and start a new, autobiographical strip "Cheeseborger and French Fries."
Which just happens to be part of the reason I'm sharing Cheri's picture today - to give everyone a reminder that Friday is the magic day when her comic updates [temporarily every other Friday - but hey, even on those weeks, read it again! Or start from the very first comic. It's quite spectacular].
Cheri's wonderful to work with, and she's let me peek behind the curtain at her creative process on more than a few occasions. I'm so glad to have had her support on "Calamity Cash" - she even donated a bit extra, yet asked for only a single copy - and we can't thank her enough. It's my hope that we'll maybe work together some day again.

"Calamity Cash & The Town with No Name" (25 pages, $3.50, plus shipping): The mother/daughter vigilante team of Tana and Cal Cash are on the run from an Afro-rocking, Kung-Fu assassin, and have been forced to make their last stand in a nameless desert town hiding an unbelievable secret - every last citizen is in the Witness Protection program! Out of gas, low on ammo, and with their backs against the wall, Calamity and Mama Cash become the town's unlikely protectors, but with friends so quickly becoming enemies, and old enemies becoming friends, is the whole place doomed to burn? And will our heroines be the ones to light the first match? A modern-day action/adventure western with words by Randall Nichols, and art by Justin Cornell.
