Award-Winning Authors

Award winning authors have a few things to say about Johnny the Tuber. Huh? Oh, no. Not directly, of course. Even the creators are somewhat hesitant to lay claim to the contents of this blog at times; still. There is something to be said about the simple majesty of the potato, as is evident in this nationally famous work published by this nationally famous author.

" 'I suddenly knew what I wanted.' He pulled up his left pant leg. There was a small tattoo just above his ankle... All day everyone told Calvin what they would have gotten: a fire-breathing dragon, a lightning bolt, a creature from outer space. 
None of them said they would have gotten a potato.
But Calvin knew better... He looked at  his potato. He smiled. It made him happy.
He was sure he had made the right choice.

At least he was pretty sure."

-Louis Sachar

How about them 'taters. You should go get a tattoo of everyone's favorite potato on your ankle!
Seriously though, go.
Why not get this?

Johnny the Tuber #10 p.6- THE END!

Happy weekend! NOW we're back in the swing of things! Here's a strip for you!

Our Summer Hiatus Has Ended!

Hello friends, and loyal JTT readers in the UK! We sure do love you guys 'n' gals.

Anyways, we took a bit of a break this summer if you hadn't noticed. It's a jam packed time for both of us - family reunions, weddings, camps, birthdays, anniversarys, you name it - we do it. In fact, you can hire us to officia- ah, never mind. We don't come cheap enough for you lousy layabouts.

We're proud to announce a new Johnny is right around the corner. So linger on, disgruntled webcomicers! We are here, and we're here to stay.

In the meantime, enjoy this:

Johnny the Tuber #10 p.5

Johnny the Tuber #11? Yeah. Technically. But we decided to finish out the Ghetto Dolphin story arc* in a multi-page all inclusive "Issue #10."
*(is it still a "Story Arc" if you have no planning as to where the arc goes or ends, and it's not really an arc so much as a blood drenched squiggly?)
Enjoy another chapter of this epic showdown!

Our Sincere Apologies, and Some Potty Humour

Hello, faithful Johnny followers!

Yes you, our visitor from Malaysia - couldn't be more excited to see you. And our UK Fanbase...rabid! Love it!

Just can't get enough of that Johnny, can ya...

Anyways, I'd (Andrew) like to just make a quick sortie out and say sorry for the lack of new content in the past two weeks. We know JTT 10 was big enough to tide you over, because heck, we're just that awesome. And, we hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend, U.S. folks!

But, the wait is over! You should see new content pretty soon, and we'll get the Johnnymills churning.

Thanks for sticking around - your loving creator/s,

Andrew (and Henry, in Spirit, were he typing this post, I'm sure. Since he's not - get yo contrite attitude on, mister!)

For kicks:

And a Karl Komic that sufficiently sums up our time living together in Junior College:

I know it's not a very funny comic, but hey. It's our blog. What are you going to do about it?
Sorry. Anyway, we all know Johnny is very badass. But just HOW did he become so badass? I'm hoping to answer at least a little bit of that question here. And hey- how often do you get to see Johnny without his trusty bandana?

And finally, to tickle your funny bones and make you feel like your part of a great big inside joke in some wondrous world, here's a few Johnny memes. Let them pleasure you:

1000+ Pageviews! | Marco's Post-Apocalyptic Weaponry

Well, we crossed the 1,000+ pageview mark actually a while back, but never did anything to commemorate it. SO!

Coming up shortly after that is Jon Tuberon, Crusader

But let's just sit back and enjoy today. In commemoration of this monumentous moment, let's find out where one buys what they need when the end of the world strikes: Marco's, a weapons shop owned by an undead proprietor. Cheers!

Something Giant This Way Comes | Jon Tuberon, Crusader

Yes, that's right folks - coming around the corner is not only JTT #6, but an inside look via a paint featurette on one of Johnny's ancestors (da heck? reanimated potatoes have ancestors?), Jon Tuberon, who actively participated in the Crusades. Why is this important, you may ask?

A Johnny the Tuber Paint Featurette: Juan del Tubero

Paint kinda sucks to draw in. But being as I'm not renowned for my artistry as it is, it was a perfect medium to help give Johnny the Tuber as a comic a bigger worldview and feel. You see, apocalypses don't just affect Washington. It's a good place to go when it happens (great subway system, fast transit), but there's more to life.

Today, we'll get to read and enjoy a snippet of somewhere else in this crazy, crazy world. It's in the not-so-distant Gulf of Mexico, and as always, things are a-happenin'.

Enjoy, and perhaps we'll see another featurette later on down the road.


Where do you get a bandana like that? Maye it's some sort of....who knows...secret?
also, if you're seeing through the picture, go ahead and just click on it. You'll be able to see the entire thing in its full glory.

Johnny the Tuber #4

Johnny remembers his guns! A desperate fight between Ninja Pig and Johnny! A poisoned blade pierces his potatoey flesh? What will happen to him?!?

Juan Del Tubero: The Butcher of Portugal

It's a post apocalyptic world. That, we're sure of, at least. But maybe it's time to do a little exploring of Johnny's backstory, also.

Starting this week, I'll post a series of one to two image posts containing fragments of information and people from Johnny's geneology, past, and family.

Maybe it wasn't always an unfriendly wasteland.......

Juan del Tubero:
The butcher of Portugal. Hang around in the upcoming days for a short paint-based comic of Juan, and why he matters in an Unfriendly Wasteland......

Johnny the Tuber #3

The world’s largest potato used to weigh in at 81 pounds,  9 ounces according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Used to- until the apocalypse. Johnny weighs much more. How much more? I'll let you be the judge; but enough to kick away an assault from a one armed warrior-pig.
Johnny ends the battle with Beefy the Pig and is assaulted by a cloaked swine- but what of the zombies?

Ye Olde John of Tubershire!


That's right- I scanned all of the old Johnny the Tuber comics from when Andrew and I (Henry) made when we were living together in Junior College! This is a new fangled high quality PDF to view all six pages of awesome that were created before we went our separate ways.

And now, enjoy the inspiration for this blog: A Potato with a penchant for violence and an inclination for fighting:
