“Fish are always deadest before the dawn”

What an honest recounting of dead fish. I always enjoy the power of minimal or lo-fi media/art when used to convey an idea or expression – less is more, especially when executed without the presence of ego or self-censorship.

This was just another stellar example of a blog/graphic novel/comic, taking on serious subject matters such as dead fish, terminal illness or other mental illnesses, in a completely endearing way.

I look forward to having a good talk and alot of laughs with everyone!
