it’s July 16th, happy World Snake Day everyone!


More exciting news from Youth in Decline HQ!

We also this week received proofs from our printer for "RAV 1ST COLLECTION" by Mickey ZacchilliThis is a massive 276 tome, collecting the first 5 issues of RAV.

"RAV is an action-adventure romance drone comic that has been likened to such epic works as Alice In Wonderland and Ulysses. 

Follow Juice, Sally, The Snake Prince, a mystery cat and other bizarre friends as they navigate an esoteric whirlwind of dorks, punks, passive-aggression, kisses, weird basements, and bad breakfast spots.”

The book debuts at Small Press Expo on September 13 in Bethesda, MD. It will be hitting shops and be available online through Youth in Decline soon after!

lots of reasons but mainly: to ruin it. to make it imperfect so i don’t have to worry about if it’s perfect.

july 16th is world snake day. this excerpt is from the july 2011 issue of Mothers News, so sunrise times will not be accurate for 2014. this entire issue was mental- read it online at or find it in a stack in the bathroom at your friend’s house
