TALKING NOGGINS |
by Rob Osborne
Rob Osborne describes TALKING NOGGINS this way: "TALKING
NOGGINS is a comic strip of zany confabulations. Our
conversationalists grapple with the latest in infotainment and delve
into dopey discussions like you find around the office water cooler.
With TALKING NOGGINS, I'm making a comic strip that is formatted for
comic books and being published as a webcomic.
A new installment will appear on HeavyInk.com at least three times
per week, say on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. With great fanfare
and much trumpeting, HeavyInk is publishing Talking Noggins as its
first-ever original webcomic. And if Talking Noggins gets as hot as
Susan Boyle, then we'll publish the collection as a graphic novel."
TALKING NOGGINS is an original, ongoing webcomic from creator Rob
Osborne and powered by HeavyInk.

a fluffy, dangerous world, Burt Burns and Slick Sanchez are
certified public accountants. Their office resides above the Hideout
Bar, and the bean counters spend much of their free time drinking
and philosophizing there. But donít let their inconspicuous
appearance fool you. These CPAís are involved in a deadly business.
Burns and Sanchez are hit men. Sometimes itís a scorned lover who
wants revenge. Sometimes a business conflict needs resolved. Burns
and Sanchez donít really care about the clientís motive, but the
pair steers clear of the more dangerous hits. Anything involving the
mob, drugs, gambling or prostitution is off limits for these
assassins. However, Burns and Sanchez are growing frustrated with
the nickel-and-dime jobs. Theyíre ready take bigger risks and reap
bigger rewards. Burns wants the fatter paychecks. Sanchez wants the
fast action. Can these killer accountants keep their balance sheet
out of the red?

villain in Metrotown. He razed entire blocks, crushed super heroes beneath
his heel. Now heís just a malcontent couch potato. In bunny slippers and

SUNSET CITY: For Active Senior Living |
by Rob Osborne
City is a typical retirement community. Its residents enjoy golf and
gossip and they all seem content to fritter away their golden years.
Except Frank McDonald. A retired widower, he wrestles with the
question: Why am I here? Reading the newspaper, Frank keeps up on
the minutiae of the day; it provides a buzz to an otherwise humdrum
life. One morning, Frank is overcome by a startling story, and he
does something extraordinary: He takes life by the balls.

Favorite Graphic Novel
City is an accomplished, multi-layered work, and it's
depth and skill is remarkable for being only Osborne's second comic.
It's remarkable, and I'm at a loss to think of another recent comics
work that has prompted so much thought and reflection on my part. I
not only strongly recommend it, but would even suggest that a look
at it is essential for anyone interested in comics as an artform."
