The Drawing Stick by Tom Motley
Hey, they were making silent mini comics way back in 1985! Kids, if you werenâ€™t born yet, ask your parents. This shows pretty clearly that Tom has been putting out quality books for over 20 years, although the poor guy probably had to take a few breaks in there to pay the bills and such. This is the silent story of a young man, a drawing stick and a cast of characters that all try to cheer up a sad young woman. This drawing stick can make anything, at least briefly, and yet nothing seems to be working. More than that and the whole thing is ruined, as this is a tiny thing, but itâ€™s cute with a great punchline, and what more can you ask for out of comics?
