Comic Strip


Publication Date: March 11, 2015

Chapter: Boom! Pow! Smash!

A while ago, I drew this for fun and only posted it on my Tumblr. Since I'm trying to wrap up all my Lit Brick-related loose ends before the relaunch in a month, I decided to post it on the site proper.

This is the first Lit Brick comic about, y'know, a comic! Specifically, an awesome webcomic, Namesake, which is all about things that I love: Oz, literature, adventure, and OTPs. Like many lit-based comics, it relies heavily upon the public domain. As I'm sure you're aware, I'm quite the advocate for the public domain, and hypothetical situations like the comic above - in which, legally, one can't use the Oz character of Jenny Jump in a story because of dumb laws - infuriate me. Which is to say, I got to draw fanart for Namesake and jump onto my soapbox at the same time. Yay!
