    depression comix #473

    You can go here to read the comic at depressioncomix.com. I have to admit depression comix are hard to come up with lately. With nearly 500 strips in the can it’s hard to think about something related to depression that I haven’t done already.  The Depression Fog, which made its debut in #471, is continued here and as a prop it does help for generating ideas, like the Smile…

    You can see the whole comic here. I drew this at the dawn of the New Year, in the first few days of January. This was a time of general uneasiness, and it really shows in the comic. Usually I draw more cautiously optimistic comics at the beginning of the year but rarely do I just let the negativity hang out with this one. I posted this for some…

    You can read the whole comic here. This is a character who hasn’t appeared in quite a while — in fact her last appearance was nearly three years ago. Bassically it’s the hair.

Once I had the idea to draw this (unfortunately due to a sleepless night), it was easy to draw this one. One thing I did in this strip was try to avoid using the built in tools to draw straight lines and do it all by hand,…

    Click on this link to see the comic in full. Jacana returns, always one of my favorite characters to draw in depcom.  In the first 100 or so depcoms even-numbered strips were to show contraditions, parallels, and differences within depression.  This got really challenging to do continually so the two panel strips dropped off ofter that.  But this comic kind of goes back to that sort of analysis I…

    depression comix #468

    You can look at the whole comic here. This comic is very political.  It shouldn’t be, but because there is an extreme right this comic takes a stand on the other side by default.  This is pretty much what I was feeling on the day of the election of 2020, when it seemed Trump was heading for victory. I did the layout that night, but was shocked to find…
