The cover to the premiere issue (May 2005).

The Belch Dimension Comics is a self-published comic book written, drawn, and distributed on the Web by artist and author Jonathan M. Sweet. The entire series may be previewed and purchased at the official website, Smoking Cat Productions.

Sweet has been writing and drawing the series since high school, though it has only been actively distributed since April 2005. The series stars an eponymously-named hero, Jonathan Sweet.

Jonathan Sweet has super abilities which were given to him as a boy in a chemical explosion. He is the leader of The Treehouse Warriors, whose secret headquarters is a treehouse located in Jigaboo Junction.

Jon's friends are an assortment of teenagers like himself-- his best friend and technowiz Josh, who builds the team's arsenal of gadgets and weapons; Angela, his best female friend; Jon's younger brother Ben, who speaks in a garbled spit-growl that only Jon and the others can seem to comprehend, has a preternatural sense of smell and a longer-than-normal tongue, and who fights by spinning around at top speed (recalling the cartoon character the Tasmanian Devil); Billy, Josh's brother, a kid who is perpetually unlucky; Larry, the team's only black member, who is trained in hand-to-hand combat and acts as Jon's bodyguard; Flunger and Gort, two extraterrestrial refugees from the dead planet Flung, who now live on Earth; Molina, the seeress whose past and even last name is a mystery; and others. Many of the characters are based on kids Sweet knew growing up.

The artwork is done in a minimalist style, with the major players rendered as stick figures.

The superhero roster frequently rotates from mission to mission, though it almost always includes some combination of Jon, Josh, Ben and/or Angela at its core.

Major storylines in BDC focus on the villainous figures that plague the main cast of heroes, such as the megalomaniacal Snakeman, a.k.a. "Hiss Hole". Many issues have B- or individual stories that feature lighter sitcom premeses (such as a character getting a job, learning to drive, or going on dates) and may star a peripheral character such as Jon's dog Buddy, minor team members, or one of the Jigaboo Junction townfolk. The first issue was hand-colored for the first two thirds; the third half and all issues from then forward were colored with a Photoshop program, which gave each issue a smoother and more professional feel.

Riled Riled West
Silent Partner
It's December, so merry Christmas from your friends at Belch Dimension! Except...technically one of our pieces is left over from that April Fool's day issue a few years back...and that last one really works better as a Halloween story...and the lead-off story really has nothing to do with Christmas at all, now that I think about non-specific, non-denominational, winter season/holiday-timed issue thing there!

Mississippi Burping
Jon, Josh, Angela, Jimmo, Flunger, Penyem Segal, Catherine "Cat" Urich, Clinton Hollings
A gifted but embittered scientist, disenchanted with life, builds a time machine to rewrite his own sad past. However, he unwittingly creates a weapon capable of obliterating the entire Gulf coast! Can The Warriors find and put an end to this twisted genius' folly? Or will they do well to invest in some prime Tennessee beachfront while the geting's good?

  • Originally concieved as a 24-page issue, but the finished script clocked in at 34 pages. The production codes (FABF01-a and FABF03-b) suggest it was considered for a split into a two-issue arc, but it was decided to include both chapters in an "overflow" magazine which would be sold at the original 24-page price.
  • Clinton Hollings' m.o. and even his name are likely a reference to David Clinton, a.k.a. Chronos, a DC Comics villain who shares a similar obsession with time-travel and correcting past mistakes. He also looks uncannily like the titular villain in "The Madness of Mysterio", and his mother bears a striking resemblance to Aunt May. Hollings' plan, too, is not unlike that of another fictional lovelorn scientific genius, Gene Rainey.

Jan 2009's cover shows a shot of the implo-
sion of the Seminole Twin Towers at Arkansas
State University, which was the author's second
second home for three happy years. It also
features a parody of the poster to the film

  • The Finney effect is named for science fiction writer Jack Finney, whose novels dealt in great part with time-travel. It postulates that in cases of alterations to the present timestream caused by temporal movement, at least one person will be aware of the changes, while others about him will not, because for them the changed timestream is a matter of course. Examples have been seen in shows such as Men in Black, Quantum Leap, and Archie's Weird Mysteries.
  • Several homages to the Ghostbusters movie and cartoon can be observed:
  1. Josh's meter looks very similar to a PKE meter. It even changes design often from a digital readout to a dial one, just like the original did between, and sometimes even within, episodes.
  2. Josh, Jon, and Cat wear optical sensors that look very much like the Ecto-Goggles from both films and the cartoon.
  3. The time machine Hollings builds is modeled after the spectral containment unit.
  4. Josh refers to Hollings as "Professor Dweeb"--a reference to a bumbling scientist introduced as a foil for Slimer in seasons 5 and 6 of the cartoon.
  • A scene conceived but cut for lack of space showed Gangrene Trickle passed out drunk and straddling a pinball machine in the Hoopes Center game room (a reference to the rape scene from The Accused). She was also to appear in the crowd scene outside the dorm, looking disheveled and unsteady after a four-day bender, but this was also excised due to page constraints.
  • Another deleted exchange showed Flunger asking the school librarian, Myra Krebs, "So you don't find my appearance unusual in the slightest?" To which she replied, "No, why should I? My first husband was an Italian." This would explain why in many of their appearances, Flunger and Gort go out freely in public without any sort of disguise--people simply assume they are short hairy men with large noses.

A Flip of the Coin
Don't Beat the Yellow Snow, Man!
Jon, Josh, Angela, Fingers, Billy, Ben, Molina, Demi-Jon
Why change the rules when you can rule the change? Demi-Jon's latest caper involves stamping his handsome mug on every coin in Jigaboo Junction. It's a case of no quarter given as the Warriors roll out to stop this nickel-and-dime thief's fresh and minty madness! Plus, SweetTart finally makes her triumphant return to the these pages! She's hot on the trail of a cool crook known as the Yellow Snowman...but will he put our bombastic blonde on ice for good?

  • The first chapter of "A Flip of the Coin" is done in alternating color and black-and-white pages. This is the seventh story to use this technique whole or in part, after "Carnival Knowledge", "Guidance System", "Once Upon a Time Warp", "Hate Thy Neighbor", "Feminazi", and "The  Case of the Wicked Wax Museum".
  • Spearmint--originally called "Mojo"--is named for Wilson "Deathstroke" Slade's manservant William Wintergreen in the Teen Titans comic (both wintergreen and spearmint are flavors of chewing gum). The name may also be a nod to The Spearmint Rhino, a popular strip club and and elite nightspot.
  • In the original draft of "Yellow Snowman", the final battle sequence went on a bit longer, but was cut for space constraints. One notable omission is that SweetTart was originally intended to leap into the air to avoid the freeze gun blast and kick the door of a chute containing several ten-pound sacks of ice overhead. The ice landed atop The Snowman's men (this is why the newspaper photo shows them buried in ice bags, though the finished story doesn't indicate this), with one falling bag damaging the control panel of Snowman's special thermal suit, incapaciting him.

Drift of the Magi
An Ice-Cold Bud
Ice, Ice Baby
Have a hell of a jolly Christmas with the whole Sweet family as they exchange heartfelt gifts under the tree in a Yuley yarn we like to call "Drift of the Magi"! Join Buddy as he goes walking in a winter blunderland and tangles with an alpine rescue dog in "An Ice-Cold Bud"...and get ready to kiss your ice goodbye when the Trio of Trouble hire themselves out as not-quite-so-professional ice sculptors to scare up some fast cash for the holidays!

  • The original script for "Drift of the Magi" called for Ben to grab Tim's crutch and hit him in the head several times with it, knocking him unconscious, but it was decided this ending was too violent for a holiday story.
  • Several gags were conceived/storyboarded for "An Ice-Cold Bud" but cut for lack of space, including:
  1. In the original encounter with the St. Bernard, Buddy successfully gets the cask of booze and runs away with it, but is caught and thrown against a tree. A flurry of snow falls on his head, giving him a resemblance to Cuban president Fidel Castro. The scene then picks up with the dog bringing his master the keg.
  2. Buddy's second attempt went on for much longer: instead of relinquishing the cask, he holds onto it, in the manner of an English footballer, and runs onto the rink. He slips, loses the barrel, and watches in horror as it flies through the air, strikes a tree root, and cracks. The contents pour out and into a hole in the ice. Several fish swim through the liquor stream, get intoxicated, and start to swim arround erratically. On the pond's surface an ice fisherman catches one of the fish. Cut to a scene with the fisherman and his family eating dinner with his wife and kids. The boy complains the fish "tastes funny". The daughter collapses face-first on the table, presumably of alcohol poisoning. The mother cries, "Oh, my god--call 911". The scene then cuts back to Buddy's fall through the thin ice.

I Swing the Body Electric!
Role Models, Inc.
Jon, Josh, Angela, Billy, Ben, Flunger, Jiggawatt
Jiggawatt returns with a scheme to take over a new body: Jon's! With his mastery of electricity combined with the Teen of Titanium's inherent abilities, that walking short-circuit could be an unstoppable juggernaut. Meanwhile, a birthday celebration for a teammate leaves the Warrior's alien pal Flunger feeling alone, depressed, and taking stock of his life on Earth.

  • Most of the B-story was excised from the finished story for lack of space. Originally the part from his spaceship Flunger needed to call his home planet would be revealed to have accidentally been left charging, steadily gathering energy from Earth's atmosphere for the last five years--in essence, making it a time bomb capable wiping out half the city (the half Jiggawatt didn't destroy when he exploded on the other end of town). Ben, Billy, and Flunger were going to have to race against time to locate the lost part before it overloaded and blew up.

Can Marcie get to the bottom of this medieval evil and get back the loot, as well as prove herself worthy to play her very own lute?

The Eggs and I 
Jon, Maria, Dung Tung Wu
What do you do when a mermaid is getting ready to have a baby? Call the obstetric sturgeon! Now that this lame pun is out of the way, let's get to delivering this monthly solicitation. Jon's sea-dwelling friend Maria Eisner comes to Jon and his team in her time of need-- and what a need it is, because it seems she's just days away from giving birth! She needs a secure harbor to hide away in, because that ghoulish gormand Dung Tung Wu is looking to sell her eggs for top dollar as caviar. Can Jon and his crew keep Maria safe, or will they see her precious unborn children snatched away and end up cannibalized on crackers by the underworld 's elite at some gtitzy black-market bash?

It's A Long Way To Temporary
Pipe Kype

Dr. Hauser's secretary gets sick and leaves him with the phone number to a temp service, but imagine his surprise when The Flungarian Triplets show up in answer to his call for help! The doctor may need a doctor himself when this day is done. Plus, things get plumb crazy in "Pipe Kype" when Jon leaves his dog tied up alone for just a moment, and the pernicious pooch starts to pull and tug at the leash... and 'de pandemonium begins.

The Engrish Patient 
The Larry and Lana Mysteries: The Case of the Tattletale Tune
Josh, Tin Boo Tee,  Marcie
Joshua's girlfriend's father-- a staunchly-traditional businessman-- is flying in from Japan to visit his daughter's American sponsor family. He desperately wants to make a good impression on the old man, but worries a buttoned-up no-nonsense sort like Tin Boo's dad won't be keen on a callow fellow like him. Meanwhile, Marcie frets when she gets a false postitive on a mandatory drug test at work. Can she re-take it and ace it, or will she succumbs to the pitfalls of pee-er pressure? And, in the backup story, our favorite Sherlock homeboy and his pretty kitty race to look into things when a runner is accused of cheating in a marathon.

Spherical on Broad and Fourth Street
Dusty Rhodes' Wild Side
The Back Issue
Multiple mysterious orbs are sighted in the skies over Jigaboo Junction! What's behind this rash of flying eyes, this surfeit of airborne ocularies, these spheres that inspire such fear? Alien invasion? Russian enemy spy drones? A few thousand novelty ballons broke loose from their strings at the party supply store-- again? And what's with that wierd little man wielding the wheelbarrow who keeps cropping up?
