This is my favourite I’ve ever read by you and I read all your posts.
Thankyou for posting and I hope to hear back from you one day.
Wow, all the posts. I’m so glad to hear.
You’re welcome, it’s actually been my pleasure, and never forget I am still reading!
Hope they never stop!
Great, as usual! :)
That’s what I always say! And throw in a few sound effects for good measure…
We must be telepathic. That’s my system exactly!
Somehow I didn’t think we’d be getting “….and then I ink it with a rapidograph”-type process talk from you! Great stuff as usual!
Love the progression of the first three panels. Final panel, tho, is special. Nice work.
Wow, thanx for advise how to just make comics! I have dreams of start making own but don´t know how. I would love to bee carried away of a big ghostly man every night!
That is one of the best comics I’ve ever read in my entire life. Your drawing and writing just gets better and better. And I l-u-v your color palette (How are you coloring these?). I’m in awe of the completeness you can convey in a mere 6 panels. Utterly breathtaking. I sit here stunned. Please never stop.
Inside the panels. Outside the panels. Between the panels. Everywhere.
This strip is so vast.
Lyrics excerpt from a song of Iron Maiden :
«Keep the pace, hold the race
You’re over halfway there
But the miles they never seem to end
As if you’re in a dream
Not getting anywhere, it seems so futile
Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner».
There will always be someone.
Okay, THIS is why I am in love with your comics work. Every time I read you, it is twistedly delicious, real and awesome at the same time. The next-to-last panel just says it all. You are awesome.
Haha! Yup, recognize all that.
Thank you everyone for your generous comments. I’m pleasantly surprised to learn that at least I’m not alone in my aloneness.
I think I’m going to send you a Cookie Bouquet.
This is really funny. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for this! It’s always great to hear about other people’s sturggles/sucesses/adventures in writing.
I just started a blog about my attempt to self-publishing my next novel, Hanlan’s Point. Check it out at http://www.jakebabad.com
I’m a huge fan of your drawings and stories anyway, and this last one is just brilliant!
The 5th panel is unfortunately very recognizable. Why does something like that have to be so stuck in the routine? I guess without it humor would be hopelessly boring..
yes, it does seem to be an important step.
This made me sad… and then laugh uncontrollably. So, Kudos!
Great comic though and I hope get through the funk unscathed.
I found you trough Craig Thomson blog and I truly like your work and the way you transfer your ideas on paper… It is also inspiring and reassuring there are other people in the world that take it a few step forward than their bedroom or living room… I mean the visual diary witnessing -the- mind- at- work- thing :).
Just wanted to let you know that that you made me feel normal, and this is a compliment and hope it does not disturb you too much :). I suppose any attempt to tell you that I am not a psycho will not succeed after what I just stated…
Yes I am a a psycho and today a bit a lot… but well a pretty great love story ended in my life and I have spent the last 3 days to draw and write the first four days of bliss, just to make it easy on myself. It helped I don’t know about the easy ! I suppose you could live without this information so hope you don’t mind that I felt like sharing. Keep the paper colored and Ciao from Milano
I just came here via Kate Beaton’s site, and I’m a fan already!
What a wonderful little story “Lucky” is, and the half dozen or so others I’ve read so far were great, too.
Also, I want the second panel of Lucky as a big-ass framed poster for my bedroom wall. Seriously.
Oh, I guess the comic I was referring to is “How I Make My Comics”, and “Lucky” is the name of the blog. Sorry! Like I said, I’m new here. :-)
Good Gravy, you rule so goddamn hard.
Hilarious! I’m a new reader, and I’m going to be a regular one.
