Keep Moving Sign Creates the Opposite Effect

Ah, here we are a few days prior to Thanksgiving (I’m posting this on 11/24/08, if any of y’all are confused or lost or just haven’t taken your memory pills yet), and we now get to the Halloween comic. Oh well. I’m super behind, and there’s not a lot that can be done to help that. I’m only going to get even more behind the times as this will be the last comic for some days. I’m heading down to my parents soon for Turkey Break and have no comics in the backlog, which means I gotta…er, draw more. Which I will do, me promises. But being scannerless will toss up some brick walls. That’s okay though, right? You guys will wait? Say you’ll wait for me. Say you’ll never leave me. Say it.

Don’t worry now, it’s all come back
Color rests in night
You’ll be there, you’ll see her face
And hear her all the while

– “The Grey Man” by Copeland

…and by shower curtain, I of course mean shower liner.

Oh my love for the first time in my life
My eyes are wide open
Oh my love for the first time in my life
My eyes can see

Mad Over a Car With Eternal Blinker

So, in case you’re curious, Abbamondi is a beat-by-beat replacement for the grand ol’ lady known as Mississippi. Give it a try some time. I promise you it’ll be fantastic. Plus, you get to say my name a lot and we all know how warm and fuzzy that can make someone.

Drying in the cold sun
Watching as the frilly panties run
Feeling like a dead duck
spitting out pieces of his broken luck

Reason Why I Adore When the Power Goes Out

I know what you’re thinking: But it happened during lunch! That’s during the daytime! Surely your apartment gets some light, enough so that you can properly make a sandwich and eat it without accidentally nibbling on your fingers! Surely it must be so! Surely!

Silly people, don’t you know us halflings are hole-dwellers?

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Authors I Love to Read, Part One

with 8 comments

This was a ton of fun to draw and color, and I definitely plan to do another round sometime soon. Cause you seriously can’t believe that I, bookworm and admitted bibliophile, only love to read nine authors, right? There’s a bunch more waiting in the wings. If that’s all right with y’all. See, authors don’t get a lot of face time–they are wordsmiths, crafters and creators, fingers on a keyboard, with the occasion video interview popping up every now and then. So this is me doing my part, whatever it is in the big scheme of things.

Also, is it a by-the-books sort of thing for authors to wear glasses AND a dark t-shirt for their media shots? Hmm?

Site Stats Are a Mountain to Climb

Bonus laughs if you know what my last name means in Italian…and bonus bonus laughs if you know the meaning of my first name. Irony is a cruel kitten, and I’ll leave you to your research.

So yeah, seeing as today’s comic is all about site stats and folks reading my journal comics, I’m gonna put on the puppy eyes and ask that if you like my work–which, for all purposes at the moment, is basically a colored journal comic a day–then how about sharing this appreciation with the universe? The truth is I have a very small readership (no crying, I less than three all of you as if you were tuna sandwiches or unagi rolls!), but a little link to here can’t ever hurt and will only assist me in achieving the status of Supreme Being or something akin to that. Plus, I love comments…so let’s get more commenters up in this shack!

This is me sucking a self-promotion. Please help.

I’ll tell you how the story’s told
I always wanted so much more
And way on down the road
I caught a glimpse of the sunlight

Woman at Bank has a Baby at Home

A few things…

1. I’m not sure why I look so muscular in panel one, but I can assure you that I’m far from being a bodybuilder’s doppelganger. I’m sure Tara will try to undermine this claim in the comments below, but believe me people–I get sore just lifting the covers over me at night!

2. Babies do not entitle people to whatever they want. I’m sorry, they just don’t. I waited (or queued if you’re British) patiently and properly; just because I didn’t squeeze something out of my who-ha doesn’t mean you get first grabs. Also, I couldn’t help but imagine her baby at home, all alone, crawling closer and closer to the unlocked liquor cabinet and rack of filthy magazines.

3. I apologize if I offended you (people that might have been offended include: women, women with babies, a baby, bodybuilders, alcoholics, and porno mag lovers).

The wind sounds just like the ocean
Blowing big through the trees in my backyard
I sit alone in a dark room smoking
And wondering where you are
