In his Runx Tales comic, Matt Runkle exposes the ups & downs of being broke and gay in America. In this issue, he dredges up tales from his past at a farm school in "Wrestling with the Truth"; exploits the exploits of some of his friends in "Nora Stories"; pays tribute to a true gay genius in the Glamor Box featuring Samantha Jane Dorsett; and embraces his snobby side by referring to his comix as "visual essays." Perceptive, detailed and hilarious, Runx Tales is 80 times better than chewing on ceramic. Magazine- sized, b&w. "Runx Tales is a ragtag comics collection of wacky, on the road-type adventures, weird job stories, and bemused lovelorn snippets that are fresh, funny, and big-hearted." -Robert Kirby, author of Curbside Boys and editor of The Book of Boy Trouble. "Matt Runkle's smart and handcrafted worldview is such a balm in this age of heartless fonts. His work makes me feel human again." -Kirk Read, author of How I Learned to Snap.
