New Year, New...

As I enter my 16th year of this website, here's a little bit about me. I started this thing at the height of comic strip mockery. I think I am one of the last ones doing this tired old bit and others did/do so much better. Mostly what I do is write. I finished my latest novel back in October of 2022 and have been slowly looking for an agent/publisher since. Here's hoping 2024 is my year! Aside from fiction writing, I also do research for my local area. I also like doing commentary on other pop culture-y things like TV shows and comic books. I am also a huge fan of cemeteries and gravestones.

I am available everyone on social media if you would like to connect, comment, or have any questions. There's a lot to peruse on this website and on my socials if you need something to read. You can access my socials here and here. A list of things I recommend can be found here.

Starting today, I'm doing something slightly new. Since the summer of 2022, I've been posting older Born Loser strips, mostly from the 1970s and 1980s. Today, I will start posting strips from the beginning. Starting with the first Born Loser from May 10, 1965. It'll look and feel different as the Thornapple family wasn't a part of it at first. They'll start showing up about two years in or so.

Whether you are a new reader or have been watching this space for years, thank you for being here. Please share and tell your friends. I hope 2024 is kind to you. Until next time, I remain...Brian.

May 10, 1965
I've never understood why people suck in their stomachs when they are having suits tailored. Wouldn't wasting money and uncomfortable, ill-fitting clothes not be worth it?

Brutus has already given up on 2024. I'm betting Brutus stepped in a wet spot as he got out of bed. He doesn't know where it came from, but he's really hoping it was water.
