Comics continue to amaze me

Picked this up at a book-shop along Haight-Ashbury.

It has given me hope in the hopeless of all things. And let me preclude my posting of favored selections by saying that I have never been diagnosed with depression (as the author, Andre Jordan has) but I have been depressed. All of these I share with you are true for me.

***Author's Note: I used my spiffy new HP printer/scanner to get these selections for ya'll to read. Said technology was a birthday gift, and I'm glad it's already useful. Also, isn't it strange that most of what I liked from the book are the pure typographical passages as opposed to the dual picture and text? Guess I'm either a weirdo who is missing the message, or Andre Jordan should've been a writer, instead of a comic-designer... Yeah, right.***

love the cat/mouse one and the one about loving someone's words b/c that's the only thing an individual truly owns. looks like a good read.

@sarah: indeed it is. definitely pick it up if you have a chance.

Most of them seem to apply to me as well.

these are great. and, nice scanner! no one seems to own any these days, unless I'm just keeping odd company.
