reputations – a comic

Just as I finished The New American Splendor Anthology, a copy of Eddie Campbell’s Alec: The Years Have Pants omnibus arrived at my door. I had no choice but make a sketchy autobio comic between reads.

my snobbery is killing me: the comic

So maybe you’re wondering why the hell I haven’t posted anything since August.  Odds are you aren’t, but for the record, it’s because:

1) I have a job, you bum.

2) I write comics, and my current project BFD keeps getting longer and more stressful the more I write it.  (Who woulda thought?)

3) I find that while expressing my ideas in the essay/blog post form works pretty well, I really think in terms of comics, and turning my ideas into comics like the one below is a better use of my time (though arguably a better use of time for artists).
