We create our own reality every time we put pen to paper or fire up the graphic design software. If that's true, then what kind of sick god am I?

Frighteningly Pretentious Komix!

Saturdays
FPK delves into familial and romantic relationships with a tender story of a girl who just doesn't get it.

Some people call it "theft." I call it "plundering the public domain." ARRRRrrrr, ye matey!

The artwork from this strip comes from a St. Johns Publications comic of the golden age, "Teenage Temptations." I've read several of these issues, and I must tell you - they are all delightful anthologies that romp merrily through a world of teenage girls making disastrous life-choices such as (gasp!) going to a late-night dance club with the wrong boy! Things generally end happily, though, as most of the teenage girls wind up either (a) marrying the nice schlub they previously gave the brush-off to, only to discover that he's wealthy and owns multiple cars/houses/diamond necklaces, or (b) marrying the nice schlub they previously gave the brush-off to, discovering that he's really a nice guy even though he's poor, and he won't hit her nearly as often as the bad boy would have.

Mmm-mmm! That's good old family misogyny, right there!

Frighteningly Pretentious Komix, in addition to being posted to the web, are also designed as minicomics. If you have an interest in helping distribute FPK to friends or family who are frightened by the prospect of (gasp!) going to a website - or if you want a complete print set of FPK, feel free to download the PDF of #3 from Rapidshare and follow the folding instructions at eHow.
