Uncle Machete and Company.

I recommend listening to this throw back jam while you read this comic (cause it was in ma ear all weekend). Also, if you haven't been around for awhile you should check out this comic and then this comic in order to know what's going on.

And that last panel was an attempt at ASL fingerspelling, but looking online, I'm not so sure about the second to last hand. It appears that there are two options for "G." Also, thanks to Kevin for help with the naming of all the family members.

And this just cracked me up all week.

My God!

Picking up from last week.

Whew! Busy weekend! Went to New York to see my friends Patrick, Avani, Anaadi and Macaulay Culkin. I think that Culkin might have a crush on me. He texted me, like, three times on the bus ride home. I also went to the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival as a fan (of course forgetting to bring any sort of postcards or business cards or anything), which was pretty cool. A lot of awesome comics and it was in a gymnasium. It totally looked like a science fair, only instead of lame old baking soda volcanoes (which really are pretty cool)(but you know what I mean) it was all wicked awesome comics.

And then today I was up in Manchester, New Hampshire at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, where I gave a little talk to Joel Gill's comic book class (I'm sure it has a much more sophisticated collegiate sounding name than "comic book class") about comics (like, duh), how I draw them, and how I got published. It was a lot of fun, and hopefully I said some worthwhile things. I also did some critiques of work, which can be a little difficult. It's not always easy to know what to say. You may see something, but will commenting on it help? What does this person with their art in your hands need to hear? What will help? What will hinder? What will make them cry? Will it help if they cry? Anyway, it was fun and we all had a good cry.

The Passive Aggressor

I'm planning on doing a series of these. "The Heroes You Know." I've already got a few more planned: The Instigator, The Overthinker, The Argyle Snoot, but I'm totally open for suggestions. This one wasn't even my idea (credit goes to Colleen AF Venable). So let me know of any ordinary heroes you think need to get a little recognition!
