Update for 10/18/18

New review today for Trolls by Michael Aushenker. And if you live in Ohio, you know that you can vote already, right? Early voting is every weekday from now through the election, so go do that.

Update for 10/16/18

New review today for Worms, Clouds, Everything by Lote Vilma Vitina. That wraps it up for the mini kus crop this time around, but don’t fret! They’re 70 issues in and have kept up a regular schedule for years, new issues will be here before you know it.

Update for 10/11/18

New review today for King Cat #78 by John Porcellino!

Update for 10/9/18

New review today for a returning old favorite (Pat Aulisio): Ghosted.

Update for 10/4/18

New review today for Maud by Marlene Krause, another one of those dastardly mini kus comics. I don’t think I’m using that word correctly…

Update for 10/2/18

New review today for Last Chance For Love by Dave Kiersh, an old favorite.

Update for 9/20/18

New review today for Artema: The Exile #1 by Rachel Cholst and Angela Boyle. Hey, if you happen to have comics for sale in my store, please get in touch with me. I’ll be contacting everybody, but since the store barely works anyway, I’ve been thinking about shutting it down and getting your comics back to you. Meanwhile, if you want something from the store, I’d hurry. If all goes as planned I’ll shut that down by the end of the year…

Update for 9/18/18

New review today for Behind Thick Glass, I Saw the Stars by perennial favorite Rob Jackson. And I was so caught up in everything else that I didn’t even notice the website’s anniversary this year, so…. happy 17th anniversary to Optical Sloth a couple of months back! Thanks to anybody who’s been here from the beginning (assuming you exist), to new visitors, and to everybody who checks in to dig through the archive whenever they’re bored at work. I have no plans to quit any time soon, which is probably good news if you like the site! If you don’t, why are you reading this? Life’s too short. Thanks again everybody!

Update for 9/14/18

New review today for Lawns by Alex Nall, happy weekend everybody!

Update for 9/12/18

New review today for Weekend by Erlend Peder Kvam and, if that name wasn’t enough of a hint, it’s another one of the fabulous mini kus comics!

Update for 9/10/18

New review today for another one of the monthly Poopsheet comics, and this time around it’s Larva Pimp by David Miller. Should be a regular week of reviews around here (which is about 3 these days), so hey, you have that to look forward to!

Update for 9/4/18

The mini kus people are back! It’s always good to see the package with Latvian stamps arrive. New review for Day Tour by Mariana Pita!

Update for 8/28/18

New review today for Cats of the White House by Rachel Scheer and Danny Noonan!

Update for 8/22/18

New review today for Rest Stop Brochures for the Not-So-Distant Future by Caitlin Cass. That’s probably it for reviews this week, but keep those comics coming. I’m hoping to make this a more regular thing for a month or so before work takes over again…

Update for 8/20/18

Oof, sorry about that, work has been crazy lately. You may have read about it if you follow political news at all; I work in one of THOSE Ohio counties. Anyway, new review today for Ask a Cat #9 by Charles Brubaker.

Update for 7/30/18

Yep, still chairless over here, so still only sporadic reviewing. New review today for Concerted Efforts by Mohar Kalra, and once again I’ll try to get another crouching review or two up during the week.

Update for 7/23/18

Yep, I’m finally back! But it wouldn’t be me if there wasn’t drama along the way: I have no chair for my computer desk, so I’m awkwardly typing this while sitting on the floor. Meaning reviews might be scarce for a bit until I get this sorted and, due to getting hit with a few hilarious financial setbacks after moving, that might be a few weeks. But I’ll still get sporadic reviews up, like the one today for Noble Head Funnies #6 by Edward Parker Bolman, another of the Poopsheet Foundation subscription comics, so look into that, won’t you? Meanwhile, if you live near the Columbus area in Ohio and have a decent computer chair you’re looking to get rid of, let me know and I can trade you for some comics…

Update for 6/28/18

New review today for Goiter #2 by Josh Pettinger, and I’m moving to the new apartment this weekend: 13 E. Winter St. Apt 1, Delaware, OH 43015. Send comics, I’m running low on review issues so there won’t be much lag time. If there’s a gap in reviews, it’s most likely because something has gone wrong with getting the internet working at the new place. That happens almost every time, so don’t be too alarmed if it happens this time too.

Update for 6/26/18

New review today for The Last Human Alive by Joseph Hewitt. The reviews this week are all done in advance because of my upcoming move, so my apologies if the world ended in the meantime. I mean, only if I’m somehow responsible for it, of course. The unchecked power of a small comics review website can be an awesome thing to behold.

Update for 6/22/18

New review today for Flocks by L. Nichols, whose comics I’ve been reading and reviewing here for years. So if you’re guessing I’m a fan, yep, you nailed that one. Happy weekend everybody!
