mission of INCOMING! is to spotlight our military and
honor currently serving troops and veterans of all
services. Without these men and women our way of life
would be much different.
There is no continuing plot or story line here. It is a
series of single panel cartoons, sometimes depicting
serving troops, sometimes their families and other time
former service members.
Fun is poked at all the branches with no harm intended.
Combat troops as well as rear echelon types (REMFs) are
highlighted and share the spotlight as well.

For the past 6 years I've been teaching cartoon drawing
at various after school programs, libraries and art
studios and anywhere else I can brow beat someone into
letting me in.
I've also been producing several regular cartoon
features. For a look at some of my other cartoons,

We are a military family. Grandpa and dad were Army, I
was Air Force and my son is a Navy officer. There are
cousins who were in the Marines and Coast Guard. Between
us, we have all the branches covered. - John
