Call Slips Reach Critical Mass!


Late last year I did a blog post about the series of End Strips I’ve been posting lately on my Patreon page- vertically formatted, phone-friendly short comics drawn on strips of paper trimmed from larger sheets, usually for one of Rebecca’s school projects. I also included a nod to a related series of very short comics about material I’ve taken out of the library. These are drawn on another type of random scrap paper- call slips, those little white strips of paper stuck into material on the hold shelf to identify which library member it is being held for. For years, those slips have come in handy as bookmarks, but once a book was finished my habit was to throw them away- until now!

I’ve now posted around fifteen or so, enough of a critical mass that they now have a folder to themselves on my computer. Looking over the ones I’ve posted, I notice that over half are about DVD material rather than books, like this one reviewing the Albert Brooks film DEFENDING YOUR LIFE:


A smaller number review audiobooks or print books, like the graphic novel PATIENCE by Dan Clowes:
