Retro Saturday – feat. President.com – The 24 hour Graphic Novel

Uncategorized

At 286 pages, you might think that Time Tourists was my longest graphic novel. But it’s not. Not even close. 

Years ago, in Art School, I was inspired by my furious experiences working as a treeplanter, and by the grueling Seigan training sessions of the swordmaster and calligrapher, Yamaoka Tesshu, to create the longest graphic novel I could in a 24 hour period. This resulted in President.com, the story of a website that becomes self aware and runs for president, eventually resulting in giving alligators the vote and nuclear war.

It stars Mystery Snail, the world’s greatest detective, and Helpful Coyote, a hard-nosed cop with a mysterious, ninja-related past. It is utterly demented and incomprehensible, and it spans some five-hundred pages. I haven’t come close to scanning them all, and at this point don’t even know where the originals are. But here I’ve managed to preserve some of my favorites.

Warning: Do not expect this to make any sense whatsoever.smallpresdotcomsmallpresdotcom0001smallpresdotcom0002smallpresdotcom0104smallpresdotcom0105smallpresdotcom0106
