Piltdownlad #6: Institutionalized
This issue features the "Institutionalized" story cycle, which is an exploration of one event told from the individual perspectives of four participants. Picks up where The Nasty Dear (Piltdownlad #4) left off: from the Jackson group home in Anniston, Alabama, to Hillcrest Hospital, a mental hospital in Birmingham, where my brother Joey is put in the Youth Ward and I end up in the Adolescent Ward. Meanwhile, our father and Rick come home to discover their fate: a potential life sentence for child sexual abuse. Interspersed among the narrative are actual court records from the trial, newspaper clippings, song lyrics, photos and other miscellany. As with all issues of Piltdownlad, not for the fainthearted or the hardhearted.
Also includes a letter and comment sections and zine reviews.

Hi Kelly - I'm tapped out financially but would be GRATEFUL for a review copy ... DJ Frederick
This is the inaugural issue of the Animated Review ‘zine. Created to compliment our blog of inspirational animation, the publication highlights some of the great creative talents we have had the pleasure of featuring online.

It's the Back-to-School issue, folks, and this ish talks about such nifty topics as...
• A hilarious trip to Milwaukee.
• Why I didn't go to the Occupy National Gathering.
• Minnesota fights school calendar changes.
• The Federal Porn Allotment.
• When people drank beer at school.
• Bad hotel reviews
• More funny YouTube clips.
• PayPal woes.
• The latest in my war against ad servers that cheated me out of my revenues.
And remember, if I can ever find an ad server that I believe is honest, I'll be able to offer The Last Word for free again. Hope springs eternal.
For the latest edition of The Last Word, point your pooper here...
Best all, The Last Word is a supporter of the Occupy movement.
The latest volume of my comic illustrating Craigslist missed connections is out now and available to purchase!
Here are a couple of recent reviews!
You guys are already reading this series, right? This is where my hatred of/general annoyance at social media really slows me down, because all I can do is assume that you’re already reading this. If not, this is a series by Robert Hendricks where he illustrates those creepy/hopeful/soul-crushing “missed connections” messages on Craigslist, and it’s consistently a thing of beauty.
Here's a snippet:
...Whether it’s empty longing, or a penchant for odd sexual proclivities, there’s a human constant in wanting to connect. There’s a sense of isolation in feeling so different that you think you can’t. There’s something psychologically primal about revealing insecurities, secrets, and confessions in the public forum of Craigslist, anonymously hiding in plain sight. Grade B+.
