You can read Issue 1 free online today, and you'll be able to read the entire series for free as it's posted to followers. No ads, no trackers, no middlemen, we're going back to our roots on the open web. [more inside]
The Marvelous Money Machine could make the whole town rich! But…how does it work? A pay-what-you-want picture book for children and immature adults.
I started knocking out a 3-panel comic strip (mostly) daily since this whole "shelter in place" thing forced everybody to stay home and confront the abyss of boredom yawning away before them. [more inside]
Initially this was meant to be a series of comics about Boston drivers, who never cease to amaze me with their inventive ways of motoring, thus making me wonder what exactly the local driving schools were teaching. And then...it kind of morphed into a jumble of random sketches. One day I will redraw these properly, but that day is not today.
To create ‘the ultimate comic strip for millennials’, I gathered a list of tiresome “millennials are killing X” articles and made a page that generates speech bubbles over Jamie Smart’s artwork featuring Avocado, Toast and the delightful Mister Boomer.
A short comic explaining one key point about the democratic primaries.
A graphic novel retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, imagining the everyday within the mythical. [more inside]
A gut-wrenching coming of age story of unlikely alliances, magic, daring escapes, young love, and crime sprees, all squeezed over 2400 baud modems. We're so proud to be finally releasing the entire 6-issue print and web comic Incredible Doom free for everyone to read online, no strings attached. We also made a new little video to give you an idea of what it's like. [more inside]

A comic about food, government cheese, being a latchkey kid, being the child of a latchkey kid, and the power of kraft singles in your life
My newest comic is something a little different for me. It’s certainly my most literary effort. It's called A Life Half-forgotten, and it’s what I like to call a graphic memoir, dealing with growing up in Central Ohio suburbia during the 60s and 70s, as well as the vagaries of memory. [more inside]
Today my friend Matt and I are finally launching a new web & print comic series we’ve been working on for almost a year. It’s about teenagers in the '90s getting into life & death situations over the early Internet. [more inside]
A shortish autobiographical webcomic about the time I nearly worked for the CIA.
A long time ago, in 2010, I made a comic strip, Champ 2010. It was a daily (mostly) strip following my year of no drinking. Someone shared it here and that was sorta fun. Anyway, I thought I'd share my new project, "Oh, Boy!". Also a daily comic. Thanks!
The traditional western hororscope, mapped onto the classic movie monsters.
Yet another twitter bot. I did this as a web project a long time ago, and turned it into a twitter bot to see how difficult it would be to write one of those. (Answer: about 15 lines of shell for the comic assembly and 10 lines of python to post to twitter.) It generates and posts a new randomly-assembled comic strip every eight hours.
I spent four and a half years drawing a comic about a robot lady dragged out of reality by her ex-boyfriend. It's done now. You can finally find out if she managed to get herself back together and stop that hive-mind from taking over the planet. Somehow I managed to get some amazing blurbs for it somewhere along the way... [more inside]

An illustrated review of the most common pasta shapes.
I've spent the last four and a half years making this comic. It's about a robot lady dragged outside of reality by her ex-boyfriend. She's got to pull herself together across four parallel worlds before a hive mind takes over the planet. It's finished now. And it's all free online. "Decrypting Rita is that rarest and most refreshing of things: a science–fiction story that feels like it comes from the future." - Phil Foglio "Deliriously confusing and addictive... It’s kind of wonderful." - Peter Watts "Very post-singularity, much upload, wow." - Charlie Stross [more inside]
A little sidebar to my nearly-finished graphic novel, in which I celebrate the fact that marriage is finally a thing everyone in America can do regardless of whether or not their genitals match their partner's.
Meet Toby the lion, Herman the penguin, Frank the zookeeper, Dr. Sara the vet, Misha the bear, Mr. and Mrs. Flamingo, and more... Fun for all ages. [more inside]
Pee & Pray is an ongoing web comic starring Peeing Calvin and Praying Calvin. I'm 18 episodes in so far. There is some NSFW language. And peeing. Thank you.
In the darkness of space, on the fringes of civilization, a group of wiley outlaws thwarts authorities, empires, and the forces of the universe simply by surviving. They are also puppies. [more inside]
This started off as me tinkering with a Tumblr idea called Pulp Silence -- golden age comics panels with the dialogue balloons blanked -- but I got curious about what else I could put in these balloons. and one thing led to another. [more inside]
In honor of Prohibition Repeal Day, The Toast ran a comic by me about how a typo nearly ruined a cocktail for over half a century.

You can follow their adventures in a new digital comic, launched this week, and with new issues on an every-six-weekly basis.

After a few years of gathering ideas and saying we would make a webcomic, daisyk and I have started Kittens All The Way Down. It's about strange kittens and whatever else pops into our heads. It updates Saturdays, and we have strips for the rest of the year already queued up.
I was fortunate enough to be part of the first wave of Monkeybrain Comics' digital initative with my new monthly series Wander, featuring art by Grace Allison and letters by Josh Krach. The first arc, entitled Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom explores what happens when a thoroughly modern 20-something finds herself plunged into a fantasy world straight out that section of Barnes & Noble she always avoided. A strip explaining the concept for the first arc is available here and there's also an eight-page preview of our first issue on the Monkeybrain site. You can buy the 22-page comic directly from Comixology's website or through the app on your mobile device for $1.99 if if you so desire. [more inside]
A silly weekly comic about unicorns, including modern unicorn powers updated for today's busy age, and "facts" about unicorns. For example, this week's comic features an answer to the timeless question, "What do unicorns poop?" [more inside]
A daily posting of art and humor. I have been working on it since 2005. I have recently (last four months) doubled-down on it, stopped maintaining two other blogs and have tightened up my act and my artwork. [more inside]
I've spent a lot of the past year working on a sci-fi comic called "Decrypting Rita". I think it's pretty cool. I've spent a lot of the past year working on a slice-of-life comic called "Decrypting Rita". You might like it. I've spent a lot of the past year working on a fantasy comic called "Decrypting Rita". It's a little experimental.
These are the reflections, in comic form, of a guy (me) who was really apprehensive about becoming a parent--and who, after more than a decade, continues to be surprised by how much he loves it. If the comic is about anything more than that (and it often isn't), it's about the glimpses that we get, as parents, back into childhood and its secret worlds. "But Good Lord, man," I hear you cry, "there's 160-odd pages of this stuff. Where to start?" Links to my favorites inside. [more inside]
HISTORICAL FICTION DENTISTRY COMICS! [more inside]
Just a comic version of reddit's firstworldproblems meme. As someone who is easily annoyed, this seemed like a natural project.
I've started a blog to show my comics of Kittypuss, a cheeky black cat. She does all things cat like, though she sometimes gets in situations that are rather unusual.
I finally got off my butt and started a webcomic. Still pretty rough but thought I'd share. [more inside]
I'm translating an indie comic book series with the intriguing name "Intake Tower". It's about urban exploration, military secrets, and [REDACTED]. I am requesting that people support the author by buying the comic from him, but click here before February 17. Contains risque artwork! Not suitable for people who cover Greek statues with veils!
This is an ongoing collection of sketches and comics that I have worked on. Check out the word frequency table and words diagrammed from chart's rules. There is even some speculation on squaring the circle. There are a couple of comics, and even some abstract sketches. More to come...
When two dear friends got married, they asked me to make a comic of how they met. [more inside]

BASIC DECENCY is a print collection containing the first 44 installments of my webcomic Gentleman's Gentleman, instructing one in the fine art of not being an uncivilized ass. On top of the 44 comic strips, the bonus materials include an illustrated guide to personality types, an awesome Interrobang-created guide to old-timey gentlemanry, an essay by Rebecca Collins on arch-Gentleman Dominick Dunne, and a very embarrassing About The Author photograph.
Breaking my years of MeFi silence (but I've been lurking all along!), here's a photocomic made up of conversations added to my own photographs. I'm making some efforts in my life to be less neurotic about certain things, and I'm in hopes that sharing these photos and dialogues with y'all will not only entertain a little, but also help me stop being such a hermit and maybe deal with some Stuff. [more inside]
Along with artist Molly Crabapple, I have a brand new project debuting at Zuda Comics, Puppet Makers, a sprawling alt-historical murder mystery set at Versailles with lots of huge robots. Updates every Wendesday [more inside]
Fanciful webcomic that is perhaps neither fancy nor funny. An astronaut who resembles an iPod (it's hard to draw people!) discusses life with a romantic squid. That's, pretty much, it. Enjoy!
bunt cake is a new comic thing that I make out of baseball cards. It’s not about baseball, it's just literally made out of baseball cards. So if you like your childhood ephemera gone at with a pair of scissors and then recontextualized against random photographic backgrounds with dialogue juxtaposed there upon, this thing is right up your alley.
I'm drawing a page of comics once a day for the rest of the year. Most of them so far are autobiographical—things that have happened to me on that particular day. They're somewhat crude, but the quality is guaranteed to improve. They're also viewable as this Flickr set. Comics are usually posted late in the day, because I don't manage my time well.
