[Insert your favorite Star Wars quote here]

I'm at a Target, I see a Darth Vader action figure, I read the label: WARNING! Choking Hazard! Bingo! There's the strip. THANK YOU GOD!
One thing about a strip with regular characters is when I come up with an idea like this, it's impossible to include them. However, I liked this idea so much, I couldn't resist. Hey, maybe I'll make the guy in the second panel Joe's dad or something . . . Okay! I've decided! Introducing: Joe Edison's dad. It may be the first and last time he appears in this strip. Who knows?
By the way, when did George Lucas gain so much weight?

The Fraction Faction

I haven't posted a comic in a while because I'm working on a larger project.

On the last week of high school, my calculus teacher, Mrs. Free, hit us with one last assignment. We had to do a math project and she gave us several options, such as write a poem, make a poster, or write a children's book about math. I thought about what kind of kid's book you could write about math, and the idea hit me! I turned in my rough draft and got 100%, and have been working on illustrations for the story all summer. Here are a few samples:

If you've read my Bob 'n Joe comics, you'll recognize several of the characters.
