In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d post something a little on the playful side: a comic I recently revised while thinking about the relationship between text and narrative, how we propagate myths as a society and (even) how drawing can be a kind of dramatic reenactment.

the end

parts of this comic were published first on Every Day Genius & Reconfigurations;

the text is part of a not-yet-published novel, an excerpt of which was recently published in The Coming Envelope No. 5 (Bookthug, 2012).
