You really needed this!

School's Out! Where is the Main Content!?

You found it! You made it to the very fourth Adventure for WATSON AND THE SHARK!

This time, we seafare with King Cat creator, and primary publisher John Porcellino on this fourth high sea fourth Adventure for Watson and the Shark Adventure!  To compensate for last adventure's brevity, we have extended this adventure beyond the mere scope of 28 minutes!

Shackles be gone!  

King Cat was created from the zine world of the late 1980s and later morphed into one of the funniest, saddest, and most influential comics of all time. King Cat is celebrating its 20 year anniversary this month! He has self-published all individual King Cat comics while a collection called King Cat Classix was published by Drawn and Quarterly. In 2008, Hyperion published a graphic novel based on Henry David Thoreau's Walden and other writings. It was published in conjunction with The Center for Cartoon Studies. His work has also appeared in McSweeney's Quarterly and Kramer's Ergot. We discuss Thoreau, Walden Pond, punk rock, zen, Billy Joel, Spanish Flea, first records, Akira Kurosawa's Dreams, zine culture, and how he manages to draw so small.
