Douchebags of Comics
Douchebags of Comics is a series of trading cards I’m working on as a side project.
It seems that the comics industry just harbors a fairly large number of douchebags of all different sorts. From people who I think have pretty much lost their link to reality, to bigots and general assholes, to people who just suck in a way that’s holding comics back, the world of comics has representations for people all along the spectrum of douche. Obviously it all comes down to my opinion and people I think deserve a card, but a whole lot of people already have had suggestions about people they consider douchebags, and I love hearing those suggestions, so send them along if you think of one! As I started doing portraits of these people for fun, I realized that making the portraits into a set of trading cards would be a great way to use them and let people have fun with them. I’m shooting for a goal of 52 Douchebags portraits, The Douche 52, and when it’s all done I think I’ll also make it into a set of playing cards.
I’m creating this page to keep an updated list of possibilities for cards, and also to link to the discussions and blogs about it as the project goes on.

Already have illustrations for cards:
