Yirmumah!, by DJ Coffman
I'm not sure how to describe this strip, other than it is done by a talented and all-around great guy named DJ Coffman. It started out as a gag strip, but evolved into a continuity strip. The story generally centers around two nutcases named Drew and Bob and their misadventures through life. Of course, with characters like Happy D. Ass and Anti-Claus, not to mention the Brick of Silence and the venom spitting cobra, that doesn't even come close to describing what happens in the strip. You just gotta see it for yourself. When you do visit his site, tell him I said hi!
Check out DJ's awesome art below!

Enter Yirmumah! book signed by DJ Coffman and Bob McDeavitt. Check out Bob's great artistic skill with that little doodle next to his name.
Enter Yirmumah! poster signed by DJ and Bob. What an incredible poster, paying homage to one of my favorite movies of all time, Enter the Dragon.
Gang, this is the art to end all art right here. This is the original art to the Enter Yirmumah! poster and the Enter Yirmumah! book, done by none other than the man, DJ Coffman. It is an honor for me to own this piece and to share it with all of you. Absolutely breathtaking. Thanks, DJ!
Cover to Yirmumah! issue 1. This was self-published by DJ, and done in such a way that it just may revolutionize how print comics are done. The dealings were handled completely by DJ, and despite the high quality of the book it was still made available at a very affordable price.
Inside cover of Yirmumah! issue 1. Note the great original sketch of the Drama Llama surfing; thanks, DJ! (I'll post a closeup of the sketch when I get the chance to take a better pic; this one came out blurry.)
Inside cover of my second copy of Yirmumah! issue 1. This time DJ did a great sketch of Tiki and Bigfoot, two of the zany characters from Yirmumah!.
Closeup of the Tiki and Bigfoot sketch.
An official Yirmumah! Brick of Silence! This is brick number 2, and was made by DJ completely by hand. Go and buy one for yourself by visiting his site!
Signed letter from DJ Coffman describing the early original Yirmumah! strips. DJ was the first webcomic creator to really push and encourage me with my gallery idea. This was months before ComicStripFan.com was even conceived. DJ has always been a great supporter of me and the site, and I'll always be grateful for that.
Another signed letter from DJ that he sent with the book and poster and the Yirmumah-load of art. Bob and DJ's wife Calista signed the letter as well.
Sketch of Yirmumah!'s Drew on back of package received from DJ Coffman. I couldn't bring myself to throwing the package away because of the sketch.
Front of second package received from DJ Coffman. I know, you're wondering why I posted this pic here. Can't you see the little sketch of Bob in the lower left corner? Hey, I'm a purist; I display ALL art I receive, especially from DJ.
Alright, so the sketch of Bob wasn't the highlight of this package. Check out the awesome sketch of Drew surfing on the back of the package received from DJ. I think DJ likes to torture me by making me keep cardboard along with all of his great art.
Whew! Incredible art, huh? DJ is a good friend of mine, and is definitely a gifted artist. If you enjoyed what you saw, go and join Club Yirmumah!
