Meanwhile, the new, possibly-real JohnK account contains several in-progress scribbles from his forthcoming George Liquor cartoon, and a link to the Kickstarter page which aims to fund the project. So yeah, we suspect the new Twitter account IS the real JohnK.

This means two things.

THING ONE: You should probably follow him now. If it weren’t for the popularity of Ren & Stimpy, many of the artists behind Adult Swim might never have found the inspiration to move away from safe, family friendly cartoon fare.
