Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
This scenario was conceived by a bunch of
people who'd all called in sick to work on a rainy Monday afternoon and were
lying around on my floor listening to jazz, reading comics and lesbian porn,
and drinking beer. That's our old friend Boyd in the cell with George. This,
we have no doubt, is exactly what Boyd would say in this situation. Thanks
to all who contributed to the dialogue, especially webmaster Dave, who supplied
the masterstrokes about both the "Oval Office" and the "Vice-President."
A stupid cartoon, obviously, whose premise is relevant to no real political
situation. Mere wishful thinking. Sorry. But I had to take a train up to New
York for a book signing on Thursday, which short-circuited my usual creative
process, in which Thursday is traditionally entirely devoted to feeling anxious
and guilty about not working on the cartoon, and Friday to frantic drawing.
So I had to go with the best idea I had at the time, which, believe it or
not, was this one.
Anyone who was not lying on my living room floor drinking beer last Monday
and is not Boyd, should let me know if they find this funny. Do not let me
know if you don't.
Book Release Party Announcement
The official book release
party for The Pain--When Will It End? will be held from 9 until midnight

Copies of the book will be available at a discount and Tim Kreider will be
there to sign them. Many of Tim's friends on whom his characters are based
will be there, drinking heavily and behaving in ways that will be uncannily
familiar to regular readers of the comic. George and Mister Cheney have been
invited but are not guaranteed to attend.
