    You can read the comic at the site here. I like this character, she’s been appearing a lot recently as you can see.  I wanted to talk about meltdowns and rumbling stages, and in future strips I’ll look at how what we can do to help people through these.

    You can read the comic here. A bit of an ode to my childhood, I guess. I’m sure there are a lot of depressed kids who had the “this is my house not yours” held over their head, making them feel like a temporary resident in a house they had no choice being in. This has made me wonder why parents have children and don’t feel like sharing their…

When I first started this comic in 2011 I wanted to illustrate feelings that I couldn’t describe using words and for me this is one in the same vein. I have perfect hearing, I get this tested every year, but whenever there’s any kind of a competing noise I become practically deaf. The competing noise could be the…

    Click here to see the comic on the depression comix website. It isn’t an end of the year for depcom without a Robin/Wren strip. This is admittedly fairly bland but a reminder about self-care during the holidays. I do like the third panel — it is always fun to draw these two together, they are a great couple and it is one of the more positive spins on an…
