I had a really bad summer. Each time I thought it was getting better something terrible happens and I just kept breaking down. The only thing I thought I could do is cry, so I did that almost everyday for more than two months. I just had a big change happen. It happened in a terrible way that I didn’t deserve. I have deserved more for a long time and it’s time for me to stop being sad because I just can’t be sad anymore.

I wrote this to try and make it into a comic but I don’t know if I can right now, but I just wanted to get this out there. I’m going back to college soon and I hope I can make so much more work and finish my story on scoliosis. I want to make work that will help people, but right now I have to help myself get past this.

Also, I wanted to share a magazine recently contacted me and wants to publish some of my work. I’m talking over some stuff with them over skype in a few minutes and I am very excited.

Yesterday I went to the doctor and the nurse thought my name was almond. My name is Almog. It’s like people don’t even try anymore.

You can’t always tell someone has scoliosis just by looking at them.

“A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One hates self-indulgent, vague, deeply relatable-through-their-vagueness, boring, simple autobiographical comics. The other finds making those comics very cathartic, and fears that the real problem is too petty or too serious to be more specific about. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other cartoonist, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
“The one you feed.”

I finished that panel! It flows really well with the page but I also thought it could stand well on it’s own. This page is about the cruel things I thought would be said to me once people at my school found out I wore a brace. Thankfully this never happened.
