In late October or November I’m going to make some of the Ernie Items that I have had for years available. I have very limited numbers of these items. If you would see some of the stuff click here.
My new collection of Single panel magazine cartoons will probably be available on the 24th, this coming Monday. I’ll also clean up this page to make it easier to figure out what’s going on here.
Here’s the best link for the latest daily collections, 1995-1998 and 1999-2000. Go to Lulu.com and search for Bud Grace. The books should pop up. And they are 25% cheaper than Amazon charges.
Currently there are five book collections of strips available. The first three, 1995-1996. 2003-2004 and 2009-2010 are available through Amazon. They cost ten bucks each are in a 8.5 x 8.5 format. You can order them through Amazon. Here’s a link.
All five collections contain all the published daily strips from those years plus some extras that didn’t make it past the editors.
If you would like me to autograph a book, package it up and send it to me. Include a stamped self-addressed return package. I don’t know how that would work for foreign countries. If you find out, let me know and I’ll pass it on. I’ll be glad to sign it and return it. If I get too many requests I’ll have to try something else.

I see that the old Ernie Out of Control book is listed On Amazon as well. I know nothing about that, and I get no revenue from it.
There is also a collection of many of my old single panel cartoons on Amazon titled Guess Who Got Lucky. It contains over 130 cartoons. This one isn’t for the kids. Here’s a sample:
Original Comic Strips and Reproductions
If you would like to buy and original Ernie/Piranha Club (It’s called Piranha Club in the U.S. and Canada and Ernie elsewhere), I still have strips from mid 2015 and later. The dailies sell for $120 and the Sundays for $150, plus the cost of shipping. They’re drawn on two ply Bristol board with India ink. Go to my Home page and use the email link to contact me. The rest have been archived in the Louvre. Actually, they’re at the University of Ohio. There are also quite a few archived in the cartoon bank in Lund, Sweden.
In June of 2018 I will announce that if you are interested in a particular old strip I will contact the Archives and see if they’re available. I will charge a bit more for those. If you are interested, be sure to check my blog in June.
