Hello to all the new readers I met at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair last weekend! We had a great time and I continue to be thrilled by all the enthusiasm Buffalo has for my depressing comics. Thanks especially to Chris Fritton, who always does a spectacular job organizing a hitch-less event that is a pleasure to exhibit at.
When not exploring the triumph of romantic love, a lot of popular culture focuses on the power of friendship. But what if your friends aren’t anything special? What if friendship’s endurance is more like a stubbornness? Introducing a new collection of Herman comics: Herman the Manatee & His Lousy Friends, now for sale in my store. I’m particularly happy with this one; a long span of time had elapsed since the comics in Volume 3, so I did some heavier editing than usual. Because only the best strips were selected for inclusion, I promise that even the most sophisticated, the most discerning, the most cosmopolitan Herman fans will not be disappointed. It features lots of depression and anxiety, as well as the Knuckles-trawling storyline. Also, you can now purchase all four volumes for just $10! It’s like you’re stealing from me! Some friend!
