John Porcellino

When Alex came back from TCAF he brought a lot of comics by John Porcellino. I thought they were annoying at first, because the drawings were so simple and he would add words to describe some of the actions in the panels and the sequential art didn't always seem logical to me.
However, their simplicity made them great bathroom reading material (relaxing and slightly depressing at times). After one month or two of reading them everyday, I started liking them too. This pretty much describes how this happened. I also discovered later that he does live from the sales of his comics.
One of his nicest is "Thoreau at Walden".  Here is a sample from the book.
