I have written and drawn this comic as a modern retelling of an ancient Japanese fairytale about kindness and greed. This story is heavily adapted for a modern audience, but the original story is pretty hardcore too.

Shita-Kiri Susume is about a man and his mean-spirited wife. The man feeds a sparrow everyday. 

One day, he leaves and asks his wife to feed the sparrow. Instead of feeding it, she cuts out its tongue. Upon returning, the man finds the sparrow on top of a mountain and is offered the choice of one of two baskets. 

He chooses the smaller because he is old and it turns out to be full of treasure. Upon hearing about this, his wife heads up the mountain for the larger basket, which is full of vipers who scare her/kill her. The intended values portrayed in the story are regarding the positive effects of friendship and the negative effects of greed. You should look up the original story, it's pretty good. 

Someday I'll do a straight up comic of the original story, for now, here's the modern adaptation. I hope you enjoy it.
a modern retelling of Shita-kiri Suzume, a Japanese fairytale about kindness and greed. This involves credit cards, student loans, debt and financial practices.

Comic writer Matt Fraction is raising money for Futures without Violence as a response to 50 Shades.
So there’s a movie out this weekend based on books that romanticize, fetishize, glamorize and normalize abusive relationships. It will make 85 million dollars at the box office and move hundreds of millions of dollars of candy, soda, and cash-in branded merch. And while sex is great and finding someone into all the stuff you’re into is great, sex is not consent to violence, a relationship is not permission to abuse, and there are thousands o...

Last year, my department went on an excursion to Silicon Valley and San Francisco to build relationships with some of the companies out there to help get our students internships and jobs. We were hosted by Ebay, Facebook, Linkedin, Google and a number of pr and ad agencies.
