On memoirs of the marginalized
"People really like hearing about how sad it is to be marginalized." -Fabian Romero, in his recent interview with Nia King:
I’ve been listening to Fabian Romero’s silky smooth voice, discussing how the sob stories of marginalized folks are paradoxically…

My brother disappeared over the weekend. I’d gone down to see him and my mom. We were watching a movie at around 10:30pm, when he stood up and went to the kitchen. He then presumably walked out.
I went to see where he was after about 20 minutes. When I couldn’t find him, I assumed/hoped he’d gone out for a cigarette and a walk.
We went out to search for him and hour or so later, and phoned the police about 3 hours after that. We’ve done everything we can since then, including posting flyers and searching everywhere. It’s been 36 hours now. The temperature has been around 0° C both evenings and it’s been raining as of last night.
If you know anyone in south England - especially in Hants/Hampshire - I’d really appreciate if you could point them toward this post, ask them to take a quick glance at the picture and keep it in mind when travelling over the next few days. We believe he’s been off his anti-psychotics medication for around 5 days. He’s not violent at all, nor a hazard to anyone but himself. He will probably be confused, with some periods of lucidity. If found, please immediately contact the Hampshire police on the non-emergency number 101, referencing case #200 from 16th February 2014.
Not sure if I have followers in the area, but if so please help Ryan find his brother.

Here are some snapshots of the first print run of PUPA that I produced and handbound for TCAF including a size comparison with my usual comic books - it’s in international A6 size which is a lot larger at about 8.25” by 6”. The second larger print run is going to be in done in Taiwan so the print quality and book quality will probably be even better!
Just a reminder that this is the last weekend to preorder a copy of PUPA! Proceeds go towards helping honey bees.
For $23US, you get for an A6 size book with
- 100 pages B&W!
- 11 pages colour!
- 1 colour pullout!
and shipping from Taiwan is already included in the price!
The book will be perfect bound and will be gorgeous.
Our 27 contributors include:
I’ll be closing down preorders sometime Monday morning EST. After that if you want a copy you will probably have to track one down from a contributor who will be selling copies of the book at events or online after the preorder period.
Thanks to everyone who has been supporting the project thus far! We look forward to getting the books in your hands sometime in late October/early November.
pre-orders end on MONDAY

le1f was so good and moved way too fast for me to draw him right
plus i was, like, in the back and it was dark
i think he was drinking kombucha on stage
i gave antwon some copies of my pokémon comic (+ other stuff) and i hope le1f reads it / likes it, since he makes a lot of pokémon references, but w/e. it’s not for everybody.
need to sit down sometime and draw a proper portrait of him

antwon is from my hometown (san jose, ca)
we’re friends of friends, or at least acquaintances of acquaintances
i gave him some comics after the show and he was really nice
really happy to see him blowing up and glad i finally got to see him perform
this was the first song i heard from him and still one of my faves
