The united forces of Zatanna, Sabrina, Hermione and Wendy up against... something creepy in the woods. Super witch team unite! I call them Witchfront. :D

Max Overacts 397 cross post by caanantheartboy
Max Overacts 397 cross post
Time for another cross post for my latest Max comic. It was late getting up but it's a doozy!

This is the big ending for my cottage storyline. Bringing together the bullies, the Russian Bear Repellent masks, water pistols, and ultimate failure as a trio of 9 year olds try to scare some teenagers. Eleanore is a new addition to the strip (for anyone reading this who hasn't read the comic) and this whole storyline has been about cementing her position with Max and Klaus as their number 3, because while my strip is about a thoughtful young fellow who loves to create stories and situations and connect with people, I really wanted a different energy in the comic in the way of a sporty little girl who will always be their friend. No awkward love triangles. (Max already has Janet and Auryn and a planned parade of other potential girlfriends as the kids age.) No, I wanted to show boys and girls getting along without any of the usual drama.

Plus, later on down the line, as they mature and Max's plays get more elaborate... they might need a stunt girl. ;)

Nearing the big 400! If you've never read Max, please consider ... Just head there and start at the beginning. It might take you a couple of hours. ;)
Fantastic Five and Six by caanantheartboy
Fantastic Five and Six
Not that I'd ever get the chance to work for Marvel, but I would totally love to do a mini-series where Franklin and Valeria manage their own little town of homeless people and down on their luck regular folk, and the madness that would ensue. :)
Kings of Sexy mashup by caanantheartboy
Kings of Sexy mashup
Done for the Comics Should Be Good blog over at as part of the 200th edition of their mashup art feature, The Line It Is Drawn.

So, the thing with these mashups is I don't choose the characters, I just draw 'em. This particular bunch of 5, Batman, Hellboy, Don Draper, Spike and Luke Cage was chosen by a blogger at Comics Should be Good who thought such a pairing should be called the Kings of Sexy.

I think "Blessed by genetics. Enabled by society." is my new favourite phrase. Looks aren't everything. In fact they're nothing. (Said the ugly guy...)


Artist | Professional | Other
Hiya folks! I'm Caanan. A simple cartoonist. I had my first book published in 2010 with DC Comics, called Celadore. It originally ran on 180 pages of secret societies, nymphs, shapeshifters, vampires, genies, a unicorn and kids being kids. Since then, I've been doing Max Overacts on my site, which was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2011, and updates monday, wednesday & fridays (though right now it's tuesdays and fridays because I need to slow down before I hurt myself.)

Current Residence: Calgary, AB
Favourite style of art: Cartoons
Not the greatest at this whole social media thing, but I'm posting here to give it a go anyway!

I'd really love to win this Muppets comp over at Threadless -… - If you're a fan of any of my muppet pieces in my folio, or the Muppet Thor 24 hour comic I did, or just how I draw them, this is a chance to get my take on the lovable troupe on an actual t-shirt!

If you have the time, please throw me a $5 vote, maybe leave a nice comment. The $2,000 prize will also go a long way to getting me back on track with my webcomic, Max Overacts. The more I can earn from my own art and ideas, and little bits and pieces like this, the more I can work on Max and less on seeking freelance.

Thanks in advance for any or all tiniest bits of help guys! :)

What an amazing collection of witty, charming and thought provoking art. I have never laughed so much, or wanted to favor so many pictures before.

Thank you very much for sharing your talent.

I love it when people laugh! That's what I'm here for. If you like my sense of humour though, you should really follow a link to my comic, Max Overacts. You may just laugh some more. ;)

Looking at your picture of Mockingbird and Hawkeye Pierce reminded me of something. What I would like (need) to see is some World War II era Superhero leading a member or two of the cast of Hogan' s Heroes out of Germany.

Someone's got to have done that already. Google image search? ;)
smurphy365 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
Well, I tried that. I searched using "Hogan's Heroes" and "Superhero." Nothing at all. Any suggestions?
