Happy World Autism Awareness Day 2019!
I’ve been waiting a long time to launch this webcomic. I haven’t figured out a dedicated time or day yet, but I should be able to put more out at a pace of about once a week. From here on out, these will take the form of single-panel strips.
Also, the next three strips are ready to go, but in order to do that, I had to color them by hand… analog (as opposed to digitally). You’ll notice a difference for the next three, but at least it gives me more time to polish future pages.
I hope you enjoy The Jack of all Tirades as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Jeff is Jon’s father, who always seems to be asking a ridiculous favor from Jon at the worst times. Though Jon always tries to hide from him, Jeff always seems to find his son.
Daisy is a cat. Pet the kitty…
Randy is Jon’s friendly rival who will mischievously get into trouble with Jon from time to time. He means well, but doesn’t always think ahead to the full picture, much to Jim’s annoyance.
Also, he’s an enthusiastic workaholic.
Jim is Jon’s best friend and keeper of the peace.
An aspiring police officer, Jim juggles Jon’s idiosyncrasies with Randy’s antics, all while trying to keep Jon’s and Jeff’s father-son relationship as healthy as possible. Good luck with that last one…
Jon is our eyes and ears for the series. He calls it as he sees it. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? That remains to be seen. He may be autistic, but that suits him just fine.
Also, do NOT ask him what being autistic is like…. I mean, unless you want to hear about it all day…
