Contemporary readers might find it hard to imagine just how different Andersen’s tales were from those before him. They were beautifully paced and passionate, at times sorrowful and full of pathos, and at other times wickedly funny. Simply put, they were a pleasure to read, and they spoke directly to children’s sensibilities rather than condescending to them.
While his introspection and sensitivity were imperfectly calibrated to the demands of his own life, Andersen had the ability to articulate desires petty and profound and make them into transcendent tales.

We’re kickstarting a “Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell” book!
After many weeks of waiting and plotting in secrecy we’re ready to show you what we have planned! Check out our kickstarter campaign and help us make it happen!

If you love Darwin Carmichael Is Going To Hell, you have to get in on this Kickstarter. If you have never heard of it but love the Buffyverse or the world of Percy Jackson (and are old enuff), you need to check Darwin out. One of the most beautiful web comic stories ever.
A couple of months ago I went through a break-up and met a border guard, a pillar of humanity who has seen this exact thing, I am assuming: So Very Many Times.
haha it’s all good now but when it happened I thought “well I’m going to draw this sometime.” Thanks United States/Canada Border services!
