Fish1000 Comics

Welcome to Fish1000 Comics, the repository of knowledge devoted to comics* created by me.

Many of these can be read online here, bartered, stolen or purchased from me, or occasionally found in comic shops, or lying dust-covered in some unexpected place. Perhaps behind that sideboard that still stands in your parents house. Best check next time you visit.

*Comics: They're a simple combination of words and pictures normally forming some sort of narrative to tell a story or provoke an emotional response. They're the best way to explain difficult concepts clearly, and when done well, can comfortably sit alongside any other Great Art the world has produced so far. Especially mine.
