A Lovely Parting Gift


Well, whaddayaknow. A little something just dropped into the mailbox at Hamtown Central.

Can't think of a better way to say bye bye to the Bunny than with this example of awesome in it's purest form:

Huge thanks and bows and scrapes to James Fosdike creator of the positively wicked Deadly. If you're not reading this comic you should be poked with a sharp stick.

Aaaaaand we're out!

A Farewell to Hammers


Hail and Farewell, Hammerheads!

Hope you enjoyed our little prequel peek into the formative years of Calvin School.

Sad to say it looks like we have reached the end of the bunny trail after all. Season Two isn't in the cards for our big pink pal. Just not enough views.

Thanks again to everybody for all your support for the angry bunny. We had a great time and we hope you did too. Thank jebus we didn't end on a cliffhanger, am I right?

Ah well. Whaddayagonna do?


Well, I'll tell ya what WE'RE gonna do.

Make something new.

Stay tuned, Hammerheads. We have only just begun.

Li'l Hammer

Hooah Hammerheads!

We went away but now we're baaaaaack....

That trusty madman Gentleman Gabe Ostley went ahead and scratched out a whole epic prequel to The Hammer saga in the course of a single rotation of the earth around the sun - the fruits of 24 hour comic day.

So we badgered Steve "He-Who-Creates-Time-Out-Of-Dust-Bunnies-And-The-Salt-Left-At-The-Bottom-Of-The-Pretzel-Bag" Steiner into slapping a splash of color on there (he apparently can do this just by giving the pages a stern glare) and wah-lah - 24 pages of sweet pink hilarity.

We'll post a page a day here on the ol' Hammerblog just so we can draw out the agony as long as humanly possible.

So without further yackadoodle, we give you...

Li'l Calvin School

Check back tomorry for part the second!

Hammer Timeout


Hail and farewell, Hammerheads!

Our bloody pink swath of carnage is drawing to a close at last. We thank you one and all for following the angry pink rabbit down the bunny trail.

Today the blood stops flowing. At least for now.

We've had a hell of a time. Hope you did too.

If you want to see more of Calvin, now's the time to start clicking on that Zuda feedback button and letting the powers that be know that you can't get enough of that angry pink stuff.

Finally, one last Bunny sketch before the Hammerblog goes dark:

Take 'er easy, Hammerheads.

It's been real Pink.

In Memoriam


Ah, Punt Gundersson. Your rugged good looks, your witty turn of phrase, your oh-so-delicate sensibilities and secret fondness for dill pickles. Truly you will be missed.

Sleep well, sweet Punt.

Not In the Tub with Steve Steiner


How vexing. Sam and Gabe had to squeeze into mpd57's stinky ol' bathtub, but Mr. Hoity Toity Steve Steiner gets to put up his feet in the swanky drawing room and smoke cee-gars with his Perridge-ness. It just ain't right, I tells ya!

Take a peek into the Steiner mystique right here:

The mpd57 Steve Steiner Interview

And just in case you missed 'em, you can check out Mike's scrub-a-dub-dubs with Gabe and Sam at the links below:

Behind the Pink - the story continues


Monday Monday! Say it two times and click your bunny-hop heels together 'cause it's time for this big pink rollercoaster to kick into high gear and take it all the way home.

Yes, indeedy, we're heading for a big-time Hamtown dust-up this week over on Zuda, so strap in and get ready to rumble.

But for now, let's once more take a look back at the behind-the-scenes production of some carnage that were.

As you may recall, it all starts with the lackadaisacal layouts:

Then moves on to the action-packed pencils:

Then splashed by the inkiest of inks:

And finally, what the hell, damn the torpedoes, cover the children's eyes and take a gander at Steve's colors in all their unlettered glory:

Enjoy the week, hammerheads. It's gonna be a bloody one...


Friday, August 21, 2009



And lo, there was color!

Have a good weekend, Hammerheads!


Thursday, August 20, 2009



You never know what'll turn up among the dustbunnies here at Hamtown central.

A long lost sketchy tribute to the great Frazetta from young Mr. Ostley.

My my my. That's just aching for some color, ain't it?

Keep on keepin' on, Hammerheads!

Monday Hammer


Bam! There goes another weekend.

Luckily, we've got five brand new spanking Hammer pages coming at you to make the week fly by.

That's one per day, mind you. Not all at once, ya Greedy Gus!

But here's a little something to relieve the monotony while you're sitting bathed in the glow of your screen desperately clicking refresh in eager anticipation of today's page:

Have a good week, Hammerheads!

Broke Down and Built Up

Good Friday!

It's that time again, Hammerheads! More big pink building blocks stacked on top of each other to create the bunnylicious carnage you enjoy daily.

Let's take a look at page 40, the delightful debut of the Lovely Lizzie Izzit.




Ah, the miracle of creation! Brings a tear to the eye, don't it just?

Have a great weekend, folks!

Hey look! A sketch of The Hammer!


Here at Hamtown headquarters we believe in truth in advertising.

So here is a sketch of The Hammer:

There you have it.

Now go about your Thursday with head held high!

Mister G


And now, a man that needs no introduction:

Mostly 'cause he pretty much goes around constantly introducing himself.

ComiCon HammerPix


Hamtown's own Gabe Ostley made the big trip from Hong Kong to San Diego for the Comicon Extravaganza and brought back tales of joy and terror. Thanks from Gabe to all who stopped by the DC booth to say howdy!

Here's some photographic proof of Gabe's devastating good lucks and questionable taste in haberdashery!

Huh. Apparently Gabe is married to Batgirl. Who knew?

Fear and Loathing in San Diego.

Gabe sketches 'til his fingers bleed while those slackers Dave Gallaher and Steve Ellis send each other text messages. Go give those layabouts what for on the High Moon talkback!

Gabe shamelessly swipes all his "original" sketches from Dan Govar. Did you know Azure Season One is about to reach it's soggy climax? Get it while it's still dripping wet!

Here's Dan getting ready to eject an unruly Gabe from the premises. Look at those crazy eyes. Ostley is not to be trusted!

Here's Gabe wearing his hat. INDOORS! The boy is like school in summertime. No class.

Gabe's Girl Wonder socks it to Peter and Bobby Timony while Govar looks on helplessly. Say, have you checked out The Night Owls lately? Roscoe's in peril! Hurry before it's too late!

Here's Gabe, mere moments before plunging to his doom in the Grand Canyon. Huh. Didn't realize that was in San Diego...

Anyhoo, as you can see, a good time was had by all. Or a good time was had by Gabe, at least.

Can't wait til next time!

Keep smacking them nails, Hammerheads!
