This is a three page preview of an upcoming short comic project with artist Aaron Pittman. I also lettered this project.

She had introduced herself when I had been working on a poem for one of my classes. I knew who she was--but until that point we had never spoken to one another. Well, I was kind of driving around-- --I was just wondering if I could see you guys-- I remember her walking away--she said: Take care, Steve. --and maybe Don't be go to the park a stranger. or for a walk. quot;’don’t be a stranger,” you said. I don’t think you minded; my marbled warbles, sizing up the taste of your sizzling name on my incisors, “strange or stranger,” my thinking beside itself; besides, I was thinking stranger thoughts bye, karyn. weren’t like the anythings before that I’d tried. Sticking my finger out, I tested the breeze as you walked off; ah, were blown in, winded from Brazil like a butterfly... Steve, Daddy? how many times have I told you to call first?

I wanted it to be a surprise. This Can I see Katie? Vonnegut nonsense again? I thought the three of us You could go for didn't answer a little walk. me. I don't know... Why didn't you call? One foot in front of the other? Through leaves? Over bridges?

Why do you do this? No ma'am! Our life Sit back is not some down and eat Kurt Vonnegut your lunch. short story, Steve.

Even though things haven't been so great between us, all I ever remember is the adulation of having you close to me. My heart soared through the clouds; with your warmth like rays from the sun. Even though you never let your feet leave the ground. There were growing pains--certainly. You kept pushing me away. I kept walking--through leaves, over bridges-- --until I would find my way back to you again. You made all that long walking worth it. When we were strangers I watched you from afar When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart.� But now it's gettin late And the moon is climbin high I want to celebrate See it shinin in your eye.� Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon.� “Harvest Moon” - Neil Young
