James Kochalka, my favorite comic artist / rock star has just added every one of his daily comic journals to the online archives:
In May 2002 I started posting my daily diary comic strip online. However, the strip actually began several years earlier than that, in October 1998. The early years were collected in book form by Top Shelf, but they were never included in the online version of American Elf... until now!
The archives at American Elf now go all the way back to October 26, 1998.
The early strips are black & white, and then when I began putting them online I decided to try a 2-tone color system. However, that two-tone system very quickly expanded into a full and vibrant exploration of color. I've tried to use it to enhance the emotional power of the work. But the early black & white strips do have a special power of their own. Both are good, powerful in their own way. Now the readers can see the full evolution of my grand diary experiment, which is really turning into my "life's work" it seems.
The above image is that first one. I think (though i'm not sure) that i've read most/all of them. It's neat to see James' (and Amy's!) life progress: I've watched them go from a couple to a family.
