This next Wednesday marks the one year anniversary of of my recent comic, the Eat Street Diners Club. 120 pages so far. What?!
This comic is the most fun I’ve ever had as a cartoonist. It’s fun to draw, it’s fun to write, it’s fun for me to re-read. It’s a daily challenge, but the kind that reminds me why I love comics in the first place.
Unfortunately, I don’t think a lot of people are reading it. I’ve lost the gusto for comic-book-promotion that I used to have (that energy is going into my design business), and the rate that I’ve been creating, and the nature of the project doesn’t mean I can make books, which I think is how the casual comics reader will ultimately enjoy these stories.
I send one email a month—on the first Wednesday of the month. Comic book day.
It’s just 10 pages of a funny (I hope) comic about eating, drinking and being merry.
