On road trips

If you haven’t heard about the Eisner-Award nominee, Lambda Award winning, Harvey Awards winning road trip epic The Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal then now is a really good time to get acquainted! It’s a wonderful, heartfelt romance about two men who end up driving across the country together, with all that entails. While there’s quite a bit sexual content (so don’t read this at work) it’s the characters that really did it for me. There’s dimension and subtlety in both writing and art, making TJ and Amal one of the best examples around for the strengths of the comic medium.

You can read the comic online, or pick up the omnibus in soft cover over at Iron Circus Press or digitally through Comixology if you’re able and willing to give some money to hard working comic makers.  Trust me, you won’t regret it.
