For years I had been living under the assumption that STAPLEGENIUS #1 was the first mini-comic I ever made (in other words, straight comics. I had been making hybrid zines for years). Well, while digging thru the files for things to scan in I came across DANNO COMICS and STORIES #2, a pure mini comic (#1 had been a zine). I had only made one copy of DC&S#2 that was one-sided and crudely stapled. Admittedly, the content is embarrassingly juvenile, but gimme a break I was 22! 22!!! So here it is world…nearly lost to time:

THE CASE AGAINST AUTOBIO is the autobio of my last 18 years cleverly disguised as a diatribe against the autobio format. (I don’t really mean it. I love autobio. That’s the joke!)

From the SPRINGCON flyer they made special for MIX…
Ahoy! Welcome to an update. I assure you I’m working on stuff which I may or may not start posting here, but rest assured there will be…something. For now though… THINGS OF NOTE!!!
Once again I’ll be at Springcon. I’m excited this year to not only debut a couple new books, but I’ll also be recording a live LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST! The special live guests include 2-D CLOUD, BRAD McGINTY, and ZANDER CANNON. (There may be more. Who knows. It’s probably going to be a disaster. So come see that. That will be fun.) Speaking of ZANDER CANNON, he is also the latest MN cartoonist to be interviewed by me on THE LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST. It’s a pretty great talk about his nearly 20 year career in the funny books. There are also 19 other great episodes of THE LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST up currently, so by all means go check them all out. Lots of splendid talk about makin’ comics.
But back to SPRINGCON…
So in addition to the usual SUPERMARKET VIGILANTE, TOMMY CHICAGO, and MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE books for sale (most of which you can buy anytime day or night via the magic of the internet), I’ll be debuting two new books:
ARNOLD THE SUPER CARDINAL: HOLY CRAP
and THE CASE AGAINST AUTOBIO
So be sure to come by and pick that stuff up. I should also be sharing a table with BUD BURGY, so also pick up his new MEATFIST AND GRONK book as well as the CONTINUITY GUY books he and I did together. Hope to see you there!
There. I have nothing left to say about myself. …oh wait…there’s more!
So yeah, click on this Addendum if you want to read that. In theory there will be a print addition of this at SPRINGCON–May 19th & 20, so if you hate reading things on the internet in a backwards and frustrating manner be sure to pick up a copy there. Thanks for reading!
Fun fact: This comic was recently referenced on the LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST episode with ALEX KUNO. So if you’ve heard it, now you know I was talking about in that episode. If you haven’t, go listen now and enjoy putting the pieces together. NEXT TIME: The thrilling conclusion of THE CASE AGAINST AUTOBIO!!!
