Fucking Telegram

This comic got me spotlighted in the Philadelphia City Paper Comics Issue!

Sort of!...

Here's how it goes. I'm one of twelve that got put on the City Paper's website but not one of the eleven that were printed in the physical paper. According to the editor guy I lost a last minute spacing coin flip. I'd be lying if I said that didn't get me down but like the other Comics Jam guys said, it's more than they got.

Tattoos I Don't Have The Balls to Get

Maybe someday I'll get the balls to get the socks. I probably have the sense not to get the other two, even if balls are in ample supply.

I'm sending this one and a mess of other shorts in for the Philadelphia City Paper Comic contest today. Wish me luck!

Civil War Funnies

Little background for this one. General Benjamin Franklin Butler had one of the coolest nicknames of all time. I mean, c'mon, Spoons? I may try actually try and get people to start calling me that. Of course Butler wasn't so happy with it, among other things, and in (slightly) more words made his retort law with his infamous General Order No.28

I've been reading a lot of Kate Beaton's amazing history comics on Hark! A Vagrant . Thought I might try my hand at one myself. Of course unlike Beaton, who is Canadian, us Americans really only care about one piece of history (well, two if you count WWII). I dunno if I'll ever do another of these but the material's certainly there if I feel like it.
