Vote For Peanizles!!!

Hey everybody, voting has just begun for this year’s Ringo Awards and you can help put Peanizles and me on the ballot.

The Ringo Awards celebrate the best in comics and the ballot is determined by fans and pros alike. So, here’s what you can do. Go to the Ringo Awards website and click on the red Cast Your Vote button, and add Peanizles for Best Comic Strip or Panel, and Best Webcomic. You can add Don Mathias as Best Cartoonist (Writer/Artist), and in the Best Colorist category. And the first Peanizles children’s book, “The Day The World Lost It’s Color”, for Best Kids Comic or Graphic Novel.

And that’s it!

Thank you so much and I appreciate each and every one of you fans! You are the best!



Beverly Comic Con 5 – 2018 Edition

This Saturday, April 14th, is the fifth Beverly Comic Con, in Beverly, Massachusetts.

The show is one of my very favorite conventions, and I look forward to it every year (and that’s not because it always seems to land near my birthday). This year, besides my regular comic collections and fun t-shirts, I’ll have the new line of Penaizles hats, which have Oliver featured on a green hat, with white mesh, as well as a flat brmmed, all black snap-back with a grinning Oliver embroidered prominently on the front. I also have mt Cat On The Hat, faturing Grace’s familiar orange cat from her ti-shirt. And the first Peanizles children’s book, “The Day the World Lost It’s Color” will be available.

And if all that wasn’t enough, I’ll be debuting the new prototyes for the first Peanziles plushies, of Oliver and his pet, Dusty, the dust bunny. They look absolutely fantastic, and are super soft and cuddly.

Besides all that I’ll be surrounded by a huge array of diverse comic creators and artists and writers! There’s a a coffee bar, a full bar for the over 21 kids, and a dj. Phew. It’s a blast. And the best part is that it’s free!

So swing by and say Hi
