    For purely selfish reasons, I hope your brother and Rose do settle in New Zealand, and that you then come and visit them, and while you’re here you come visit my wife and me for dinner. And also allow me to introduce you to some lovely NZ cartoonists.

    Also because yes, we have universal health care and it’s a great place to raise a family. ;-)

    Utterly haunting and wistful. Aging really gets to us. It erases that stuff that we found so important before, and replaces it with a want of waters past. Great comic, as usual.

    I’ve just recently found out you have a blog, and read through it all. You’re one of my favourite comics-people, and you’re always worth reading. I first discovered your work at when you started posting there. You were probably my favourite of the bunch there as well. (Sorry for the unconditional praise, but there’s really no other way to put it.) I hope the blog will continue. I feel like short standalone comics like these work well in this form. I hope you’ll release more books as well though.

    I’m thirty-six-year-old today (Nov. 18).
    I took the subway today.
    I was alone.
    In a city I barely know.
    I looked out the window.

    Train doors tend to do that. I wish I looked as cool in real life as I did with that chiaroscuro lighting.

    This was simply beautiful, Gabrielle. Great use of color, too. I especially liked the last panel.
