GABE OSTLEY WANTS YOUR VOTE!

Posted on 11 July 2008 by admin

TeachersFormer sequential art student Gabe Ostley is featured as one of the ten comics competing in this month’s Zuda competition – and wants your vote! If this sounds familiar, it’s because Gabe competed before back in Febuary. Though he didn’t win then, Zuda asked him to come back this month to compete again. They have faith in Ostley’s Teachers, and so do we. Do a SEQA homie a solid and click here to vote. Here’s a synopsis of the comic:

It’s a tough job, and when the last bell rings at the end of the day at the old high school on the edge of town, it’s going to get a lot tougher. The new French teacher, Ms. Genevieve, has been hearing some weird things from the storage room on the third floor. Downright spooky things. Spooky enough for her to ask for a meeting in the library after school with a few new colegues she hopes she can trust. There’s the History teacher Mr. Colvin. He’s the straight edge of the group who likes to think he knows the answers to just about everything. He’s had the same crew cut for the last thirty years and an inexplicable proclivity for sweaters. Mr. Baker is nearly sixty and teaches Science. When he’s not wandering the halls aimlessly, he can be found sleeping soundly on the floor of the computer lab. He loves robots and has a vast and bizarre knowledge of Broadway show tunes. Finally we have the sardonic English teacher Mr. Evans. He lives on coffee but still manages to be the laziest. Still, he knows when to take his opportunities when he sees them, like victimizing Mr. Colvin and Mr. Baker or trying to get a date with Ms. Genevieve. Whatever is up there is only the beginning. The truth will be scarier than a room full of ninth graders! One thing’s for sure: It’s going to be one heck of a school year!
