Comics No More

Sometime late in high school I started reading web comics–this was in addition to the traditional print comics I read every Sunday in the paper–because I simply love comic strips. This love came back in second grade while visiting my grandparents in Chicago. My grandma gave us each a copy of Calvin and Hobbes: Revenge of […]

Ms. Johnston

When a comic writer creates a strip for the first time, they need to make a decision. Should they, or should they not age their characters. Off the top of my head I can thing of only three that actually age their characters; Least I Could Do, Funky Winkerbean and For Better or For Worse. […]

A return

It is official. I no longer need to go to coffee shops to check the internet. Nor do I want to go to work because I can check my email from home. I hate spam comments. A lot. Never leave comments unchecked for two weeks. It took me about twenty minutes to delete them all. […]

Kizzy

Just a few quick things from me. First of all, if you sent or were considering sending an email requesting I be put in the paper, thank you. But I found out today that currently all the spots are filled and I will be notified if anything opens. Feel free to complain or send more […]

I like it fixed

My apologies, I have been busy. I first would like to start off with asking whoever is spamming my site non-stop to please cease. It creates a ton of extra work for me to have to go through and delete all of your self promotoing non-sense. Secondly, the reason I have been not updating the […]

Demi-cent

I forgot to mention that Friday’s comic was number 50. To me, that’s pretty exciting.

Le fabuleux destin

I think today might have made me the happiest I have ever felt, in relation to my comics. I only overheard something about them and that was all I needed. On a different note, why couldn’t Amelie do things directly? Why did everything have to be so creatively roundabout? Granted the movie wouldn’t have been […]

School has been blown to pieces

Exams are done. School is out. I am moved back to the parents house for the summer. Should be napping and relaxing and reading, but I may be more busy than while I was still at school. I suppose now I need to start thinking about my plans for the summer and trying to work […]

Comics in book form

Time to write the weekend post. I know it is early, do not hate me. I will not be around this weekend, so I must get it out of the way now, while I sit at work. Finals are almost upon me, I wonder if it would be a better idea to write and ink […]

Pitcher has a big butt

With the past week or two I finally modified my comment script to ignore all of the comments with no text. This made it so I have far less to delete all the time. But now I just get random gibberish comments, as though a baby was walking on the keyboard. I am tempted to […]
