HOW IT GETS IN (Free Comic!)

I’ve wanted to write a researched political post lately, but I tend to get my head stuck up inside my own ass when I do that. While not entirely unpleasant, I do find it unproductive in there.

This morning, however, I remembered HOW IT GETS IN. A 22-page comic book that Allen Gladfelter and I created three years ago. In my opinion the material is still relevant. By posting it some time after its creation, I’m able to capture a sliver of the joy that is having my head stuck up inside my own ass, but without any of the productivity loss.

So… here you go… HOW IT GETS IN

On March 20, 2003 my nation executed a bombing campaign known as “Shock and Awe” against the dictatorship of Iraq. Later that week, after a telephone discussion with Allen, I – being obsessed with the notion of war as pornography – sat down and wrote this. Originally it was to be published in a black and white horror anthology, but that anthology never materialized.

If you enjoy this story, another piece of old work by Allen and I, entitled TIME TAKES US ALL can be found here (after clicking through the link, scroll down a bit). But even if you find HOW IT GETS IN to be too oblique, weird or stupid, you should still check in with the other piece. It’s a totally different project altogether and much shorter.

personally, I’m quite fond of both. Thanks for reading.
