Two Party Opera
A comedic slice-of-life comic, featuring the finest ineptitudes a 20-something adult can offer, seasoned with a dash of geeky imagination, and blessed by the brush of a pigeon’s dandruffed wing. Always silly and energetic except for when it’s exhausted, which is often! Updates twice a week, typically Wednesday and Sunday.

GARFIELD CLASSICS takes us back to the beginning to remind us why we fell in love with the lazy, cynical orange cat who loves lasagna, coffee, and his remote control.
Meet the Ardins! They're the stars of Edge City, a nationally-syndicated, ground-breaking comic strip about a hip, Jewish-American family juggling relationships, careers, and tradition at the fast-pace of modern life. Fueled by caffeine and gasoline, Len and Abby and their kids, Colin and Carly, power their way through self-employment, after school activities, pursuing their dreams, and lining up for carpool. It's life on the edge every day in Edge City! CAST INFO: Abby: Wife, mom and therapist--for Abby, there just aren't enough hours in a day. The well-being of Abby's family is of the utmost importance to her, but so is her career at her group practice, Heads Up Mental Health Care. It's a lot to deal with, but Abby tries to cultivate inner tranquility . So far, she's not sure she's experienced it, but Abby's not the kind to give up. Len: Between being Abby's husband, Colin and Carly's dad and co-owner of business, Leadfoot Couriers, Inc., Len has his hands full. Len takes what life throws at him with sarcastic good humor, an attitude you might expect from someone who used to play in a punk rock band. Len still regards himself as the hippest guy in his suburb, and stays true to his rock roots by playing on the weekends with his current band, Midlife Crisis. Colin and Carly: At the ages of 12 and 10, Colin and Carly have studied dance, karate, soccer, and several instruments, but haven't been allowed to walk around their neighborhood by themselves. Colin, when not dealing with a serious XBox habit, shows an early head for business, or at least figuring out how to get the maximum pay for household chores. Carly spends her time negotiating the rocky shoals of 4th grade social life and keeping up with the latest toys. Edna and Morris: Abby's parents live nearby, which makes it easy for them to spend time with the Ardins. When they have the time, that is, because if anything, they're even busier than Len and Abby. Morris is an irascible curmudgeon who's always looking for a good deal. Edna is an optimistic free-spirit who's been spending her golden years doing everything from earning a black belt in Tae Kwon Do to running the Iditarod in Alaska. Bev: Len's mom Bev is an unreconstructed child of the '60s, but she doesn't live in the past. An activist for any issue you can think of, Bev would much rather take her grandchildren to a demonstration than the zoo. Bev's bohemian lifestyle never left her much time for parenting, so Len was a bit aprehensive when she decided to spend her golden years living close by. But though she sometimes drives him crazy, he has to admire her energy and dedication. Rajiv: Len's business partner Rajiv, is co-owner of Leadfoot Couriers. A first-generation Indian-American, Rajiv's calm and somewhat cautious approach to business balances Len's tendency to think a little too big at times. Rajiv's been dodging his family's attempts to arrange him a marriage for years, but his care-free bachelor image barely hides a romantic streak a mile wide. Abby's Colleagues: Janice, Beatriz and Stewart are the other therapists in the group that forms Heads Up Mental Health care. Though they respect each other, it's not always easy to make the decisions necessary to keep things running.While Abby, Janice and Beatriz get along all right, Stewart, who's difficult, prickly and cheap, often gums up the works. Harry: The Ardin's cat Harry was named not after a certain popular children's book character but after the hairballs he keeps coughing up on the rug. Everyone loves Harry except Len, who never wanted a cat to begin with. Harry seems to know this, and makes it a point to get under Len's skin whenever he can.

Bad Machinery tells the stories of three schoolgirl sleuths and three schoolboy investigators, attending Griswalds Grammar School in Tackleford, UK. While they are not exactly enemies, a mixture of pride, mistrust and pig-headedness keeps them at cross purposes. A medium-sized West Yorkshire city set among rolling hills, Tackleford has a long history of mystery. Since the industrial revolution it has been a hotbed of problems, issues, manifestations, bad deeds, schemes and trouble. Griswalds is in the leafy suburb of Keane End. Nothing else is certain. CAST INFO: Shauna Wickle: Raised poor but extremely bright, Shauna is the first of her family to go to a school where you have to wear a blazer. Her best friend since the age of 3 is Charlotte Grote. Shauna lives with her mother, her stepfather Dan and her little half-brother Humphrey. Charlotte Grote: Charlotte is loud, silly and likeable. She doesn't always know the difference between a good idea and a bad idea. Charlotte (or sometimes "Lottie") lives with her estate agent mother. Her elder sister has left home. She has a small dog. Mildred Haversham: The product of an extremely liberal upbring, Mildred is not necessarily bad, but she is not good at doing as she's told. Mildred shares with Charlotte a ferocious appetite for gossip. Jack Finch: Jack is a dreamer, he is tall for his age, quiet and shy. He likes football stickers, popular music, drawing, and staring into the middle distance. He doesn't understand black and white films. Linton Baxter: Linton is an achiever. His mother is a primary school teacher, his father is a police superintendent. Linton will not rest until he has righted every wrong. He is a little too sharp for his age. Linton has just discovered sarcasm. Sonny Craven: Perpetually bright-eyed and optimistic, Sonny is a good fellow to have around. Full of kindness and old-fashioned manners. It is impossible to get a comb through Sonny's hair. Sonny lives in wealth and splendour with his parents and his little sister Cecile. He speaks fluent French.

Ah, the joys of a boy and his dog. His robotic dog...Yes, Skip Smalls’ dream of a canine sidekick came true when Bleeker beeped into his life -- batteries included. For this delightful duo it’s not just about tug of war and the gnawing of bones. Bleeker can fetch, but he can also fax -- and print, place calls, detect smoke, photograph, download email, take a GPS reading, and handle Skip’s homework planner. He’s not bug-free: if he spends too much time with Grandpa, he starts hooking rugs and wearing slippers. And if you stuff Mars bars in his battery socket -- well, there are problems. Nonetheless Bleeker (BLKR501 to IM pals) is all the dog a boy, or a comic strip, could want. Read the Bleeker Blog
Bleeker: The Rechargeable Dog
Meet Gil. He’s an 8-year-old kid. Gil is a bit of an underdog. He doesn’t have the newest toys or live in a fancy house. His parents are split up – his single mother supports them with her factory job income and his father isn’t around as often as a father ought to be. But none of these things seem to have an adverse affect on Gil’s relentless optimism and upbeat attitude. Visit the official website CAST INFO Gil: A chubby and cheerful 8-year-old boy. He loves comic books, video games and superheroes, all of which fuel his already overactive imagination. He is an only child who lives with his mother and sees his father on alternate weekends. He’s somewhat oblivious to the complexities of the adult world, which almost always leads to a funny situation. Mom: A hardworking single mother whose primary concern is the welfare of her young son, Gil. She is a hands-on mother who works full-time in a factory. She struggles with the guilt that all working mothers face. Her income allows her to meet the necessities in life, like food, rent and utilities, but not always the bonus stuff like the latest video game console. Dad: A classic under-achiever. He loves his son, but isn’t winning “Father of the Year” any time soon. Shandra: Gil’s best friend, neighbor, classmate and supportive confidante. Morgan: Gil’s mean-spirited classmate and antagonist.
