Collected Comix 2012 – 2017

Here are free links to most of the comics  I’ve written over the last five years — graphic journalism, memoir, and straight toons — published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Nib, Truthout, The Los Angeles Times and more.  Thanks to all the wonderfully talented graphic journalists/artists I’ve worked with thus far: Josh Neufeld (cover image by Josh!), Jason Novak,Marc ParenteauErik Thurman Dan CarinoDan Archer,Peter Glanting and Arthur King.    Right now, I’m at work on a book-length graphic memoir focused on being a father while living with brain cancer, building on the some of the work published here (contact at bottom). CLICK ON THE TITLE TO ACCESS THE COMIC!
