A Very Strange Man Partie Quatre

A Very Strange Man Part 4

A Very Strange Man Interacts with the Outside World Partie Quatre is online! New readers may want to start here for a (slightly) less confusing narrative.

As I type this I’m hard at work on the fifth and final installment of the Strange Man series which (hopefully/mercifully) will be awesome/ready in a couple weeks. As always thanks for sharing/liking and commenting about the comic. Any evidence that people are actually reading my stuff motivates me to press on and cross that elusive finish line in a somewhat timely manner.

Home stretch baby! Enjoy Partie Quatre and stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion to A Very Strange Man Interacts with the Outside World!!!

A Very Strange Man Part 3

A Very Strange Man Interacts with the Outside World Partie Trois is up!

This is by far my biggest installment yet and, as a result, I recommend reading it on a large monitor in full screen mode (F11 on a PC or Command+Shift+F on a Mac) for the best experience. Hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for Partie 4 in two weeks.

A Very Strange Man Partie Deux

A Very Strange Man Part 2

A Very Strange Man Interacts with the Outside World Partie Deux is online!

Once again it’s set in Santa Cruz, a town that seems to have had a significant influence on a lot of my work. Having spent a good portion of my “formative adult years” in Santa Cruz I think it’s only natural that the town weave its way into my stories about characters in a similar stage of their life.

Also the rate I conceive of new storyline ideas for comics is much faster than the rate I actually create a physical comic from one of those ideas. Thus, despite the fact that I’ve been living in Portland for the past three years, I still have a backlog of comic ideas that were originally conceived and developed while I was living in Santa Cruz (A Very Strange Man included). Considering the majority of the stuff I write is semi-autobiographical (A Very Strange Man excluded :P) I guess it’s pretty obvious why Santa Cruz has become my go-to setting as of late.

Finally, regardless of where I lived I just think that Santa Cruz is a great setting for a story in general. The young, the old, the rich, the poor, the tourists, the locals, the beaches, the mountains, all converge in a relatively smallish, scenic seaside town that hosts a variety of close-knit communities (including my personal favorite, the beach bum community). That seems like a setting ripe for drama/mystery/comedy to me.

Anyway I’m not implying that the Strange series is going to be some deep exploration of Santa Cruz culture. Far from it. It’s very much a silly, somewhat immature (some would argue horrifically unfunny) slice-of-life romp that happens to be set in Santa Cruz because I can’t imagine it taking place anywhere else. That and I don’t personally know of many long-form Santa Cruz based comics out there so I hope (if nothing else) I can do my part to change that. :)

If the above graphic didn’t make it clear the title and release date of my new webcomic series has been announced. You can expect similar announcements about future installments to pop up here over the next few months.

Pretty excited to finally share this one as it’s my first longer-form comic series in quite some time and I think fans of my previous long, short, humorous and/or dramatic work should get a kick out of it. Stay tuned!
