  1. Does the “12” represent the length or the circumference?

    It’s how many times Brian’s penis has been defeated by the Avengers.

    This is my first exposure to Brian Ralph’s work and I gotta say … I absolutely love everything about it. From the rough, energetic pencils to the one-off jokes.

    The thing that’s really grabbing me is his willingness to position himself as selfish and socially inept in an oddly aggressive way. Parts of that might be de rigeur for independent comics (at least the socially inept part), but there’s an angle on this that I’m finding pretty fresh and appealing.

    I hope this turns into some kind of regular contribution.

    I totally agree with Mr. Reade. I need to acquaint myself better with Mr. Ralph’s comics.

    I’m surprised that it took 3 days to get to the dick jokes.
