○ tick ○
tick is my first comic. it’s a classic tale of boy meets robot-boy told over the course of a year in a vaguely calendarial manner. and as it turns out, calendarial is a real word.
it can be purchased for $6, shipping included, via paypal, or read, albeit lacking some of its calendrical* glory, on this here site (coming soon).
[ *also a real word. ]
