Beanbag is cool again

The Beanbag project is slowly getting back on it's rickety feet beacause two comrades are helping with this charity.
One is Len Wallace, a fellow man that had a rare heart condition and the second is Tom Mauer who will be lettering the comic now (since the last one has vanished.

Now with a solid plan, the Beanbag will be done before you know it.

Friday, October 2, 2009


It's October and the Beanbag comic is not doing so well.
At this point it may need a few pages, and a well drawn cover.
After that is sorted out. Well... it may be finally done and published!

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

It is the end of the San Diego comic con and August is soon to come. Thus Beanbag will be back to the full swing of things and wrapped up soon.
That is if a team of top artists can be found.

The Beanbag being pushed backed

Due to the fact that I will be trying to assemble a team of top named artists to join the comic project. The Beanbag comic won't be done anytime soon. Since it's a fact that the summer time is a busy time of year becuase of the summer movies, pitching scripts and ideas, and comic conventions. I won't be asking anyone to join till late August. But when I do, there will be an even more gap of time for these artists to draw out the pages, ink, and then have them all lettered.
The wait for the book will be even longer but hopefully it will be worth it.

Block of Bad News

First I would like to say that a good Face book friend and Beanbag contributer Dave Simons has passed away.
There is something going around saying that the Beanbag comic is a scam, I can tell you now that it is not true, It is very real.
And I have lost alot of artists so I am down to about 20 guest artists and I need more to contribute.

Is there good news? no not really and not anything that can out way the bad news.
I would also like to say that TopShelf is not publishing the Beanbag. I still have to send a twenty page submission like everyone else.

Oh happy days!

It's a fact, Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) has emailed me back and will be contributing something to the Beanbag comic. Will it be a page? a pinup? Only time will tell.

Monday, March 9, 2009

A one of a kind Beanbag figure is being made by Ryan Ross. Pictures of it should appear when it's done.

Saturday, March 7, 2009

I saw the film Watchmen and it was great. Thus reminding me that I hope Dave Gibbons replies to my letter I sent him and contributes a page to the Beanbag comic.

Friday, March 6, 2009

David Finch has declined at this moment becuase he still is working for Marvel.
Maybe down the line he will contribute a page..

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

After counting the pages up, I have about 21 pages in general and 17 pages done by guest artists. Although, my goal is to get about 25 guest pages.
In other news, The intro pages to the comic are almost done, and the team will soon be working on the guest pages one by one. I hope to post more images soon.

Thursday, February 26, 2009

And here is Beanbag himself, more images should be posted latter. Like a preview page for example.


Some guest artists that might contribute a page are Dave Gibbons, David Finch, Brian Haberlin, Georges Jeanty, Brian Bolland, Patrick Gleason, and much more. Though these are a couple just to name a few.

Welcome to The Beanbag Blog

Hello, and welcome to the Beanbag Blog!

The Beanbag is an upcoming comic by Stephan Lapin about the extraordinairy adventures of Beanbag, a 5th-dimensional creature that our minds can only comprehend as the cutesy humanoid blob we all know and love.

Using his ability to travel throughout the 5th dimension, Beanbag can travel between time, space, and "multiverses" at will. These "multiverses" will be represented by the different styles used by many different guest artists, resulting in a huge variety of art all while retaining a quirky style of humor.

"Beanbag," of course, will always be drawn the same throughout these pages, allowing for an amusing contrast between his cartoony style and the realistic or exaggerated world of the guest artist's around him.

Coming sometime the end of this year! The proceeds will benefit the transplant wing at Boston Children's Hospital, where Stephan has received 2 hearts.
