Elf in America

leave a comment »

I just got this tip off to read an online comic strip called American Elf. It’s been made into four volumes of books so far too and I guess it’s going pretty well for the guy. Anyways, I had a slow day at work and read through till last December so far and while I wasn’t all that into it at first, it grew on me really fast. Once you figure out that the guy is giving himself a maximum of four frames to cover his day in this comic diary, you realize the skill that goes into such a brief summary. Some of them are hilarious and some of them are just these little fleeting moments that we often forget, take for granted, and never realize that they are what make life bearable.

And then as you keep digging you run into these moments about boners or childhood or love that make you feel like you’re not alone in the world. And all that profound meaning fits into four frames or less.


I can’t wait for the next slow day at work to pick up where I left off.

Yeah, hope you enjoy it as much as I am.


I don’t really get all these text as image things that are popping up all over these days. There’s entire blogs of just this junk. But I guess you excuse it when one of them really “speaks” to you like the dork you are.
