Broken Lines is an illustrated novel that tells the tale of a waitress, a cowboy, and a goofy little spaceman, wandering America’s highways in a stolen rental van while being pursued by bad guys, who are evil and also mostly stupid. Broken Lines is a story of redemption, a story about memory, a story about telling stories. Broken Lines is funny and weird.



Broken Lines is a project I've been working on intermittently for twenty or nine years or so. It is a mixture of prose, artwork, charts, footnotes, sidebars, and other stuff. It will probably be in the 200 page range. I aim to complete it by the end of 2016. Perhaps some day it will cause clearance tables across our great nation to lament and creak mightily.
