This comic was originally serialized on the crowdfunded journalism website Beacon.

One night nearly a decade ago, I received a strange message from an unknown relative.

The resulting adventure was so singular and bizarre that I set aside all my other projects to adapt it into a full length graphic novel.

Somewhat improbably, the story also co-stars two talk radio celebrities, Derek Hartley and Avery Trufelman.

I drew this book between 2014 and 2017.

I would do a lot of things differently now, and I hope to do an expanded and revised print version one day, but I think you will enjoy the wild ride.

In 2021, cartoonist and podcaster Ryan Estrada did a two-part adaptation of Avery's original audio recordings for his podcast Unwanted Words. Check it out below!
