About the Comics

The ridiculous suburban adventures of Eric, Steven, & Damian, three friends growing up on the wild fringes of a dusty American blandscape.

Hey, Everybody.

This comic is an autobiographical examination of the life of Nacho Nova, an American cartoonist, comedian & go-getter. Comics about the little things magnified ten thousand times. Hop on “bored!”

Hey, Cat.

“Hey, Cat.” takes the universe & filters it through the brain of a cat, then through osmosis (or “Blizzard of Ozz”) into the mind of a human, & then into a comic.
