After doing serialized stories for The LA Weekly and NY PRESS for a couple of years, these strips are the first single-story strips I did when I moved from L.A. to Brooklyn NY in January 1994. There were no scanners yet for desktop computers, and Photoshop was probably just a good idea at that time. So these strips were carefully inked and hand-lettered so I could have them scaled down and copied at the copy store. Then I mailed them off to weekly and daily papers in the U.S. and abroad.
I originally listed them fairly high, because I was in no hurry to part with them. Since then, my relationship to Stuff has changed, as has the economy, so I’ve knocked down the prices because I’d like them to go to good homes where people can actually enjoy them.
The strips in this group, “Good,” were originally priced between 250 and 350. I still price them higher than a page from a longer story (such as “A Farewell to Armories”) because they stand alone — they are short stories or scenes set to drawings. Even if you don’t want to own one, I hope you enjoy reading a few.
The other categories of strips I’ll be listing (for now) on Kickstarter are “Better” and “Some of the Best” (my all-time favorites).
To start us off, here are some of the first strips I drew in that sublet Brooklyn apartment on the SW corner of Prospect Park:
