One of my favorite hockey blogs on the interwebs is called Battle of California. Maintained by Earl Sleek, Battle of Cali–as the cool kids call it–focuses on the San Jose Sharks, L.A. Kings and Anaheim Ducks.
What I love about Battle of Cali the most are these hilarious “Cartoon Explosion” stories, written and illustrated by Earl, that depicts personified mascots from each team battling for the Stanley Cup. Think “Muppet Babies” crossed with “Super-Friends” crossed with “Peter Puck”…but awesome-r.
Anything with silly cartoon animals amuses me–but these are silly cartoon animals fighting for the Stanley Cup. I love these stories so much that I collaborated with Earl in a new story called The Legend of the Seal. It recounts the tumultuous existence of the Oakland Seals / California Golden Seals…but with silly cartoon animals.
Lies! Intrigue! Cannibalism! Spray paint! The Legend of the Seal has it all. Check it out, and please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Great minds…. I had seals on the brain today as well. 🙂
Great story Sal—must be the new shades—now did you have help with the illustrations??
Oh, right. Facebook. Those are actually OLD shades–funny story from college I won’t bore you with.
I drew the black and white pictures to give Earl some ideas. He drew the color illustrations.
