Inspired by the social climate of my high school. If you didn't play a guitar, you didn't get laid. Some assholes would buy pawn shop guitars and wander around school with them, to which the girls would totally buy into and fawn over them. I later saw an episode of 'Boy Meets World' with this exact premise and everyone found out they couldn't play for shit by the end and hated them. Unfortunately the girls at my school weren't capable of processing beyond the "OOH! A guitar!"phase.
Another 'Life Drama' page. I spread these throughout my different textbooks. I had an english book just like all the TPB's that comics are published in and my goal was to completely fill it up by the end of the school year. I got about a quarter of the way into the semester before my teacher caught me and took it away. I'm pretty sure she just junked it, because if she had read some of those comics I know I would've AT LEAST been expelled!
'A Life Drama' comics were something I did back in high school. I had a fascination with the stupid bullshit scribbled in al the textbooks in my classes so I decided to contribute. It was always fun to read the mindless crap douchebags would write in them, and to laugh at all the elementary grammatical errors. Instead of "UR A FAG!" or a doodle of a big dick jizzing on an unpopular teacher, I came up with these.
This was an early "comic" (read "bitching") I wrote during a terrible week of dealing with a stomach virus. In my weakened condition I forgot to care about things like panels or coherency, so forgive me if it's kinda hard to follow. To attempt to understand the bottom half of the second page it goes
A: Me whining on the phone
B: Gremlin in my stomach responding.
I'm offering instructions on how to read my illegible 'comic', Alan Moore must be oozing with envy right now.
