This is the comic I submitted to a magazine recently with an open call on the theme of “how we met.” Alas, I did not make the final cut. So enjoy it here, free of charge. Or, if you’re a Tara/Paul hater: va la scopata voi stessi.
In other news, I’m working on a new webcomic project called Supertown. Scripting is going well, and after an upcoming vacation (thank the stars!) I’ll get down to the nitty-gritty and actually draw the thing. If superheroes and adorable moments are your thing, you might wanna stick around for this one.
And I’m going to have a story published in the next issue of Farrago’s Wainscot, which goes live on July 1. It involves birds and sex and sorta-maybe-vampires. People related to me should probably not read it unless they want to be disturbed a wee bit.
So yeah, that’s about it. Also, if you haven’t congratulated Kelly on her good news, get to it. She’s going to beat me at getting famous, but well, that’s okay. I’ll catch up soon enough.
In pastures blue and green
I’ll follow you and you’ll follow me
My fabrics mystery
I’ll wave your loyalty in the freezing breeze
I think I see, see my life

Internally, I go through this every single day, and it’s getting pretty tiring. So how about y’all just tell me what to do with my life? I’ll even consider being a professional cabana boy or what-have-you. Just help me find my path. I thank you in advance.
I can hear you calling out
Across the great divide
Right or wrong, there’s a feeling in my heart
I try to follow
But lately I just hide

So, remember that whole 200 sad comics challenge I put upon myself? No? Well, shame on you. Anyways, as I’m wont to do, I failed and gave up at 70 sad comics. They were a lot harder than they first appeared to be. Go on, you try to be funny and sad all at once. Only Jerry Seinfeld can pull that off (remember that episode?).
Well, I was doing some
spring summer cleaning last weekend and found a miscellaneous piece of paper with three sad comics sketched out on them. I have no reasonable explanation why these start at#74. I guess I did three others though I did not find them. Either way, enjoy:
Meet me on Thames Street
I’ll take you out
Though I’m hardly worth your time
In the cold, you look so fierce
But I’m warming up
– “Six Feet Under the Stars” by All Time Low
I take looting very seriously in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Also, in case you were wondering, I play as a Bosmer Night Elf with a high marksmanship level because I enjoy loosing arrows into goblins’ faces. Yes, yes I do.
