Itty bitty preview from my Boston travelogue comic, which began updating on Patreon today. The story will cover my time sailing aboard the 1840s wooden whaling ship Charles W. Morgan and my time traveling through Boston.
I’m releasing the story for Patrons only over the next eight weeks, after which it’ll be made available for the Internet at large. Any pledge gets you access, so if you’d like to chuck $1 a month my way you can get access to new pages as soon as they’re put up!

My parents’ mission sent me a book titled “The Global Nomad’s Guide to University Transition”, and I’ve been reading it almost constantly since yesterday. I remember seeing it at youth group on the coffee table of our leaders’ home and kind of scoffing at it, but I honestly don’t recall a book so accurately describing my feelings before.

My wild mood swings and crying fits and sheer fear at my future is apparently what most other TCKs experience at this stage in their transition.

Very comforting to know.

Also at this point I don’t care if Philly wins. Just end the thing.

Ayyyyyyyyup 

That moment when you’re single and you post a selfie with your longtime best friend that no one has ever seen because they’ve been mostly reclusive on Facebook and everyone is like “Aaahh!! So cute!! Yaaaay!!” and then you specify that this person is not in fact your significant other and someone deletes their “Yaaaayy!!” comment and you’re just like OK I totally understand where you’re coming from but just thank you for driving that point home

So. Yeah. Guess who has a monthly strip in the new Doctor Who: 11th Doctor comic from Titan Comics?

It’s me, guys. It’s totally me!!!!

The Eleventh Doctor was and is still my favourite Docco, even if the last series didn’t do that much it for me, I still cared for that raggedy man and held back a big tear when it was finally time to let him go. The Eleventh Hour is still one of the best season openers of telly I’ve ever watched and it was really season five where it all started to click for me. I loved Eleven’s boyish enthusiasm mixed with this old man look at the world, there’s so much going on under that mad looking face. I loved his stupid fez and his stupid glasses and his stupid braces and his stupid puffed-out-chest run! Most of all though, it’s the friendship between him and The Ponds I enjoyed the most, he truly loved his friends (who turned out to be his in-laws?!) and it’s that aspect I’m tapping into with my back-up strips, just with more laughs. Titan told me; “Think Darth Vader & Son but with the Doctor.”

Titan’s approach with my strips is very much like that of Boom’s Adventure Time range; you have a main story going on in the front and then you can a page or two of nonsense at the back. I think their efforts should be applauded, they’re very much trying to branch the comics out to a wider audience, a more Tumblr friendly, web comic savvy crowd. Kudos to them and I hope the back ups become more of a regular thing and a massive massive thanks to editor Andrew James for going to bat for me several times. I’ve just handed in September’s page (my favourite so far) and I’m working on the fourth strip right now. It’s a really fun job which I am enjoying immensely and hope they keep me on for a very long time to come.

Issue 1 drops Wednesday, though sadly for UK dudes you can’t get it in any shop other than the Forbidden Planets or via Comixology. The rest of the world, should have noooooo problems.

Welp I guess I know where my money is going this month. Go Marc!!!
