Poe, in Comic Form

By Harriet Staff

Check out this comic strip, Tripp, from Kingsbury Manx guitar slinger and singer, Bill Taylor.

Here’s the backstory:

Tripp is a cubicle jockey who spends his days writing code for corporate America. He has an impressive coffee mug collection and he’s in love with an impossibly hot and out-of-his-league coworker. A relatively normal existence, until one day, he unknowingly borrows a stamp laced with LSD and begins a hallucinatory trip*. There’s just one big problem, it’s not wearing off. He befriends the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe, who wants to help guide him through this bizarre new life.

*This comic is not an endorsement of drugs, merely one man’s struggle to make sense of his now permanent hallucinatory journey.

The comic updates on Mondays and Thursdays. And here’s a Manx tune.
