What are the haps my friends

July 7th, 2009: I finished Asterios Polyp last night and was really impressed by it. It's a great comic all on its own, but the way it explores and exploits the medium is what really sells it. Funny and charming and thoroughly enjoyable! It's humorously narrated by Asterios' affable twin brother, who died in childbirth. How is that not awesome?


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: i wasn't sure if you could be food poisoned to death, so i looked it up and saw that you could. "oh good" i said, because it made my punchline work, and then i realized i just said "oh good" to millions of deaths throughout history? wow, go me
