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 an ongoing project I've been working on super-intermittently since... oh, hell, 2003? It's a mixture of prose, artwork, and like, charts 'n' footnotes 'n' sidebars 'n' stuff. Some day, it will be a large and imposing tome, causing clearance tables across our great nation to lament and creak mightily. For now, it is in the final editing stages, with a bunch of artwork still to do. I aim & hope to complete it by the end of 2016, followed by shopping it around to publishers.
