Everybody's writing about animals these days

I mean, Jeff T. Kane started the trend five years ago. Then Tao Lin did all those stories about hamsters floating around on helium balloons and pretty much made his name on it. Now personified animal stories are everywhere. Check out this series of three at Madore's project (which is up to Issue Eight, no small shakes for a kid in Iraq). Amelia Grey, I now know, has really good hair.

So does Jac Jemc.

So does Mary Hamilton.

Blake Butler's hair, though, is almost as bad as mine.

yes! my goal in life is complete. I have followed in the footsteps of my mentor, Uncle Jesse from Full House.

I couldn't see your hair under that hat. Maybe it's not as bad as you think.
