So it would be good to touch base with fellow comic zinesters, just to have that nice community sense of what-what.

More personal stories zipping back and forth in time between a dismal youth and half-arsed adulthood!
an abandoned cat ("Mew"), a disastrous church carnival ("Mormon Hot Dogs"), drinking Bacardi at the cemetery to pass the time ("Tombstone Technology") and me and my reclusive gran go out for lunch ("Fish n Chips Shack") but I'm filled with doom the whole time. Also, I punched my dad in the balls ("I Punched My Dad in the Balls.")
