What’s Escape from Clowntown Comics?

Humorous comics, podcast and mostly-true tales of comedy from award winning cartoonist and satirist, E.R. Flynn.

Who’s E.R. Flynn?

I’m a cartoonist and illustrator who lives in the Pacific Northwest. I formerly lived and worked in New York City where I honed my appreciation for comedy, irony, and sarcasm while working in the Advertising Industry.

My comics are heavily influenced by the kind of twisted humor found in MAD, Cracked and National Lampoon magazines. If you’re a fan of sarcastic, ironic, sardonic, and sometimes adult humor, you’ll hopefully enjoy my creations.

My work as been published by The American Bystander, Freaky Magazine, The Nib, and Dark Horse Publications. You can also find my work in various online sites such as LOL Comedy and Two Fifty One.

Look for my published books on Amazon and Goodreads.

Why subscribe?

I make long form comics, plus audio stories, which take a lot of time to create. The goal is to make imagery and stories you’ll find nowhere else. I want to make stories that give you a high quality of craft, artistry and value that also bring a lot laughter into your world.

I think getting all that for the price of a cup of coffee each month is a pretty fair trade. Hopefully you do as well.
