So this week I have a one page strip in Emo Boy #9 from Slave Labor Graphics! How cool is that? Anyway, even though you should be picking up this series anyway for a plethora of reasons, I'd like to think my strip is like the cherry on top of this choose your own adventure issue. Choose Your Own Adventure, people. Come on.

So please, pick it up, check it out, let me know what you think--kind words would definitely ease the college app pressure I find myself under right now.

Thanks!

Bought!

Way to go, boy!

Edit- Is it an emo boy story or an I2I style story?

You may get mad honies, but if you're so damn emo you're in an anthology, you'll probably never feel loved anyway.

I don't know anything about emo boy. Can I get it through my local comic book shop? I wanna see more Benji in print!

blake, definitely send him something and see what happens.

morean, it isn't an anthology, but yes! you should be able to get it at any (cool) local store.

well, thanks for trying everyone! thats too bad stores aren't carrying that many copies--it's a really funny book.

anyway, in a few weeks i'll post it online for everyone who didn't get the chance to pick it up.

Can't wait to see.
I'm very happy for you.

I enjoy this comic alot. There was one point....it was a kiss...that I didn't like. Then everything got back to normal. A comic has to make me laugh, think or cry. This one's good.

I haven't laughed at a comic this hard in a long long time. Very nicely done.

And B, your page was a great end to the issue.

Congrats on the strip, Ben!
I saw it in my store and recognized your art in the back.

That's awesome.
