I recently gave Christine a copy of Cooking with Fernet Branca, a silly book about a biter writer who has to suffer the unpleasant company of his neighbor. The book isn’t actually a cookbook, but it does contain some rather adventurous recipes. In fact Christine just made chocolate fried mussels from one the very first recipes in chapter one. It was great, but sadly lacking in the Fernet department.
So I went through and found this super simple recipe for homemade Fernet jelly. I’ve never made a jelly before, and this recipe is about was a great starting place. If you love Fernet, you’ll really enjoy this jelly. It’s a bit figgy, sort of savory, and very boozy. We used Fernet Branca for this first batch, but I bet it would work fantastic with Fernet Francisco too. It goes great with peanut butter too!
I spent last weekend at Mission Comics creating my 12th (or possibly 13th?) 24 Hour Comic Book. This year’s book is called “Flies On Mars” and is about the pioneering spirit of fruit flies. I’ll talk more about that book in another update, but I just wanted to let y’all know that I’ll be reading two of my newest comic books, “Flies on Mars” and “Far Away” at Mission Comics next Saturday as part of the Lit Crawl.
If all goes well, I’ll have physical copies of Far Away for sale too. Come and watch.

Throw is a short documentary that follows my friend Coffin Nachtmahr, a bad ass yo-yoer from East Baltimore that happens to have a speech impediment. Coffin never really felt like he fit in anywhere until he found a yo-yo.
I think many of us have had issues fitting in, so this touching story is probably something many of us can relate too. I bought my first yo-yo on my 21st birthday while I was visiting the Space Needle in Seattle… I can’t imagine how different my life would be now if I had bought a snowglobe instead.
I’m so energized by this film and I’m so glad it’s finally online. Please watch it and share it around.
The folks at Giphy have been killing it this year and I’ve really enjoyed having my own artist page where I can share all my original animated GIFs. Recently, Giphy has started displaying the total views for each GIF, so I thought it would be fun to go through and pick out my 10 most popular GIFs on Giphy.
