Injured and Frustrated

Walk To End Achilles Tendon Rupture

Hello, Hello!

I skipped last week because I was, you know, in surgery. I know it was selfish, but I hardly had time between being starved and going under the knife to write up anything that I could post.

So now I have 5 comics. Mostly they are just mildly funny observations from my injury week. I know for sure that most of these comics don't really 'make the grade.' That is, they aren't really funny but may make you smile...maybe.

So take them as you wish. Don't be too hard on me though. It's freaking difficult to find a comfortable place to put my leg while I draw, eat, e-mail...or anything else for that matter.

That is why this edition of That's Comical is called "Injured and Frustrated"... I expect this title to change little over the next 6 months.

Thanks for the continued support!

My Achilles Tendon Rupture

Hello All!

Here is the deal. Some of you know and some of you don't, but I had some surgery done last night. I Tore my Achilles Tendon on Tuesday and have been in the Hospital since Wednesday.

The surgery was successful (especially if the intent was to produce sever and acute pain in my ankle) and I am now on the slow road to recovery. It will be nine months until I am allowed once again to play sports (I injured it during soccer) and It will probably be a little while before I can get back to drawing comics. I have had to scale back some items I take for granted due to my new injury. One is mobility and the other is privacy as my family is coming to visit and I wont have much alone time to sit and draw rude and tasteless comics in their presence.

On the bright side, the ordeal has given me a number of comic idea's that I have to flesh out on paper when I get time. So don't think of this as a death of the comics, more of a short hiatus.

I hope you all continue to humor my poor attempts at comedy when I return these threads to their former (un)glory.

Seriously, I can say that all the people supporting me in these comics are my favorite people since you are the ones who motivate me the most with your lies of enjoyment.

Thanks again.

Last thing I want to leave you with: PLEASE stretch properly before and after any activities. As far as I can tell it would greatly reduce the chances of this common and debilitating injury!

I'm sure I will bestow more gems of knowledge upon you as I frequent the orthopedic doctor in my subsequent visits.

That's about it.

Take care (of your Achilles Tendon) and be safe.

How To Draw

Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY!

Hello everyone!

Four comics, but one isn't really a comic. The last comic, "Who Wrought This Evil" is just a drawing I was thinking about recently. I don't think it's particularly clever or anything but I did have a clear idea of what I wanted t
o do. One of my classes this semester is an English Graphic Novel class and another is a class that deals with environmental issues. I sort of concocted this comic while I was sitting in these classes. I hope you like this comic as well as the others!

Thanks again for the support guys. I might be doing
something a little different with the comic presentation some time soon. I'll keep you posted when I find out more.

Happy February everyone!

Hope you enjoy the comics this week.

A friend of mine gave me a topic for a comic a long time ago, but I couldn't think of anything to do with it. I recently thought of a joke but didnt have the time to draw it up. Next week I should have it done...This really doesn't matter for this weeks post, I just don't have anyhting interesting to say this enjoy!

Thanks again.
