The title The Bent Pinky refers to the little finger on Scott Metzger¹s drawing hand. It¹s bent and a little twisted, much like his sense of humor. The Bent Pinky provides a humorous take on life, relationships, pets, parenthood, music, the internet, pop culture, and anything else that Scott¹s bent mind can conjure. Visit The Bent Pinky website!

The Berger and Wyse cartoons have appeared in the Guardian, UK, for over a decade. After the Pitchers – a Hollywood parody that occasionally managed to be as daft as the real thing – came the food cartoons: a diet of neurotic vegetables, omnivorous Godzillas and restaurant parody, an anthology of which was published by Absolute Press (an imprint of Bloomsbury). Since September 2014 their work has escaped the kitchen and been allowed to free reign, though we can’t rule out the odd guest appearance from an upset carrot.

The Big Picture
This high-flying single-panel comic spotlights and savors the foibles, stupidity, and goofiness of our colorful unnatural world. It's all about attitude, as the denizens of Bluemel's realm devote themselves to surviving life's pitfalls, whether nesting in quicksand or coping with the technological advances of the tapeworm. From word play to fowl play, from weirdness in the wilderness, to the irony of iron ore, Birdbrains makes the offbeat seem natural. It's a feature to laugh at: if it makes you think, you're working too hard.
Bloom County, a 1980s cartoon-comic strip that dealt with socio-political issues as seen through the eyes of highly exaggerated characters (e.g. Bill the Cat and Opus the Penguin) and humorous analogies. Creator Berkeley Breathed's first regularly published strip, Academia Waltz, appeared in the Daily Texan in 1978. The strip attracted notice from the editors of the Washington Post who recruited him to do a nationally syndicated strip. On December 8, 1980, Bloom County made its debut and featured some of the characters from Academia Waltz, including former frat-boy Steve Dallas and the paraplegic Vietnam War veteran Cutter John. Bloom County earned Berkeley the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1987. The strip eventually appeared in over 1,200 newspapers around the world until he retired the daily strip in 1989, stating, "A good comic strip is no more eternal than a ripe melon. The ugly truth is that in most cases, comics age less gracefully than their creators". The comic continues in recirculation on GoComics!

Whether depicting the coarse insanity of modern urban life or the ultra-clean realm of the feature’s only recurring character - White Middle Class Suburban Man - Derf uses dissonant humor to speak up for what he calls "the common schlub."
“Claw” is the selfish result of me wanting to draw things that I find odd or funny and then throw color on it. Some subjects might hit a nerve with me, so I may have to get the claws out while drawing. (I have not been declawed.) Maybe you’ll laugh WITH me or maybe you’ll be laughing AT me... Either way, as long as you laugh a little, I’m fine with that. A small chuckle would be nice too. Visit the website
