Ethan Kocak - Professional Artist/Weirdo

 Comic Synopsis

Black Mudpuppy is a webcomic started in 2012 by Ethan Kocak. It tells the story of the Aztec god, Xolotl,  the God of Fire and the Underworld in Aztec mythology. For the crime of Excessive Cruelty to Goats Xolotl is banished into the body of an axolotl salamander for almost 500 years, at which point he is probationally released under the condition that he has to do good deeds for mortals in order to earn back his full powers. He is not a very good hero.

Update Schedule:

Generally, I update three times a week, usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sometimes I miss an update. I try to fill the times between with super-nerdy blog posts about salamanders. If you hardcore love updates, you might like my Patreon, where you can be the first to get at the pages as they happen.
