New Comic on PEN America Illustrated

June 9, 2016

I am HUGELY excited to tell you about a comic I have featured today as part of the PEN America Illustrated series.  “Dear Friend” was the comic that first appeared in the Rumpus Letters to the Mail Program back in February.  Since it’s literally my favorite comic I’ve made so far, I am happy to see it have new life. It’s about road trips and memory and the longer road of time.  BIG thanks to Rob Kirby for asking to include it in this beautiful series.

Please go and read it–and think of it as a personal letter to you.

    This left me all warm inside 🙂 This is the route I take up to my family’s house in New Hampshire, I know it well. Also, I was once that PhD student with the college radio show. Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoyed your letter so much. I live in Africa and we often take random road trips.
    The times I enjoy most is when the music is switched off and we are concentrating on the scenery!
    Thank you for sharing.
