Tolkein's Bicycle Fantasy (Yeah, well, sort of.)
By Chip Haynes

New Cartoons

No Exit  by Andy Singer
Andy is a four-armed, six-legged alien from the planet Neptor. His multiple arms enable him to be a prolific cartoonist, while his huge jaws enable him to capture, crush and consume his favorite foodstuff--Sport Utility Vehicles. His cartoons have been compiled in a book, No Exit, and we are proud to post our very first 'toon from him. Click here

Bonkerz  by Bob LaDrew
Bob is cartoonist extraordinaire for the Delaware Valley Bicycle Club and former editorial cartoonist for the Coatesville (PA) Record. His Bonkerz 'toons are sure to tickle your funny bone. Bob's newest cartoon features two winter cyclists in their own, uh, elements. Click here.
