This is very likely more interesting to me than anyone else, but today’s strip kicks off my first attempt at a multi comic storyline! Check back on Wednesday and Friday for parts 2 & 3.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been reading my way through The Complete Calvin & Hobbes Box Set for the first time. It’s been really inspiring to see how masterfully Watterson handles multi comic storylines. Each individual strip feels strong on its own and gets stronger alongside the related comics from the storyline. It’s a fun opportunity to explore certain topics in more depth as well as create a sense of time.

On the music side of things, Jason Marshall is pretty inspiring. In fact, he inspired me so much that I rushed out to buy his mouthpiece. So, yeah… if you weren’t already aware, I’m guilty of most of the things I make fun of here on

Write what you know, I suppose.
