As I'm sure you're aware it's a new year, so enjoy a new page of Golden Gate Riot! Yay! There are only three pages left. I bet you're excited for the conclusion and I bet you're excited for the new comics that come after GGR finishes!

While I bought some rad new comics by other people, I haven't had time to read them yet, what with the holiday season and all. Okay, that's a lie. It's not the holiday season that's kept me from reading comics. We've been housesitting, and more importantly, dogsitting.

This is about wish day or some crap, giving ungrateful brats presents, and people who are no good at improv. NO GOOD, I TELL YOU.

This is about the sequel to Robinson Crusoe, irritating cartoon dogs, and Tim Curry, Ed Asner, Michael York, Whoopi Goldberg, and Frank Welker making questionable career choices.

Okay, so as you've come to expect, we have a hot new page of Golden Gate Riot for your reading pleasure.

I also have been working on getting some art scanned and cleaned up for Jeremy's Misspent Youth, which is art and comics I made when I was a kid. Turns out I actually located some extremely early art I made, to the tune of 1986. I didn't realize anything that old survived, but it did.

This is about right-wing propaganda, manipulative parents, and butchering Shakespeare.

Check out the latest page of Golden Gate Riot, okay? It takes place in front of a vintage clothing store named Channel One. Channel One was actually a real place at 736 The Alameda, San Jose, California, and it really did sell vintage clothes and records. They went out of business years ago, but they also had live shows there when I was a teenager.

Here's a list of bands I saw at Channel One:

The Timeouts
Tsunami Bomb
Shut Up Donny
Creeper Lagoon
The Contrail
Ten in the Swear Jar (some of the members went on to form Xiu Xiu)
The Aislers Set
Bright Eyes (at the time, it was just one crazy dude yelling at his acoustic guitar)
Mates Of State
Concerning Eye
Audio Crush
Spike And Princess

Up today is a new page of Golden Gate Riot for you! This comic features an appearance by the notorious Laffing Sal. She is a spooky mechanical creature that unnerved children at amusement parks all over the country, but she was particularly notorious in San Francisco's Playland At The Beach, which is where this part of the story takes place. Playland was a real amusement park at the western edge of San Francisco at Ocean Beach. Today it is a bunch of condos and a Safeway grocery store. In the War World, Playland closed down, but due to the political instability, it was never torn down the way it was in the Real World.

Here's some videos of Laffing Sal working her stuff. This particular model of Sal is at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, but there's also one at Playland Not-At-The-Beach, a Playland Museum in the east bay.
