Ten Thousand Things to DoI started this Things to MOBI #9734 diary comic partly to promote my new book The Night of Your Life a collection of my weekly comic strip Slow Wave in which I draw other people's Ten Thousand eBook #217. I first read Ten Thousand Things to Do by Portland cartoonist Jesse Reklaw back when it was originally published in the form of a series of thick minicomics in 2009 Prior to that I’d never read this type of comic in such sustained form just the occasional diarist entries of John Porcellino in his King Cat series and actually a whole book called Spaniel Rage by Vanessa Davis; however both Porcellino and Davis employ much sparer graphics text than Reklaw who fills every panel on every page here with rich visual detail and lots and lots of text It makes for dense reading and as there’s a whole year’s worth of entries plus a forward and epilogue added for the book it does take some time to get through it took me about 2 weeks to re read it as comics like this are best experienced in shorter bursts a little at a time I have to admit I just didn’t get TTTTD upon my first encounter with it “why he is listing all his daily activities and To Do lists on and on like this and why should I care” Turns out I started really getting into it by the second volume sort of hypnotized by it really and yes caring too all the while truly admiring Reklaw’s excellent drawings his dry sense of humor storytelling skills As a bonus in times of exhaustion andor previously unforeseeable roadblocks Reklaw called upon the help of some of his many cartoonist friends among them T Edward Bak Aron Nels Steinke Clutch McBastard Theo Ellsworth then girlfriend Andrice Arp and Vanessa Davis herself to render guest entries which is a real treat as each artist employs Reklaw's then I did this then I did that format each with their own individual artistic stamp naturally Interestingly some of these folks have really come into their own in the field since then This little brick of a book is a great bedside companion for fans of autobiodiary comics and a fine appetizer for the upcoming Couch Tag Reklaw’s graphic memoir due out later this year from Fantagraphics Really looking forward to that

Diary comics get a bad rap Yes they can be repetitive and some days are bound to be exciting than others but when they're good they pick up a sort of momentum after awhile They add up to than the sum of their partsJesse's comics do this and go one step further as he throws his own innovations into the mix daily mood charts guest weeks where his friends take over the comic for a week strips that document all 24 hours in a day strips written from the point of view of his cat etc I also appreciated his openness in talking about some of his mentalemotional problems obsessive thoughts unexplained sadness etc There were multiple times when I thought Thank god I'm not the only one and to me that's what autobiographical comics are all about My only regret is that I read it all long after the fact instead of following his daily Flickr posts like most of my friends did It would've been fun to follow along and cheer him on as it was all happening

Actual dreams but also I wanted to document my day to day moods and to see if I discovered any connections or patterns Drawing these comics every day has been a great Thousand Things to ePUB #8608 way t. Reklaw scores again with an ultra realistic revealing comic diary of his life We learn about his bouts with depression bodily aches and pains his doubts about our 2 party system yet also his feverish work habits It reminded me a little of a Jefferson's episode I'd watched the night before in which Wheezy wonders how George can work all the time I'm just built that way he says strutting away to another assignment Reklaw's book moved up my list with its occasional laugh out loud drawings guest panels from other artists and Bonus Election Comics at the end A classic panel reads Got up at 930 first full night's sleep in a week Some people think comic book tours are all about binge drinking drugs and groupies But it's not like thatBelow that is a drawing that looks like a cross between a Girl's Gone Wild ad and a raging frat party Reklaw stands in the middle about to take a swig of whiskey while shouting Just Kidding Great stuff to display as your desktop imageAgain his work is a limited by the four panel format Interesting conversations are abruptly stopped references to unknown people and organizations freuently made and an overall theme up for grabs It's as if Reklaw's massive to do list limits his use of sarcasm or abstractionThere's still a lot to relate to here and it kept me going and thinking This is sadly my late in my thirties intro to the comic book world I have a lot of catching up to do
