Sean O’Hara was born in Stuttgart, West Germany during the last years of the Cold War. Both his parents served in the US Army, though his mother took an honorable discharge after his birth.

Over the last two hundred years, there have been numerous interpretations of Frankenstein. Most have focused on moral issues raised by the story -- man usurping the role of god; a male usurping the role of woman; a scientist conducting experiments without considering the ethical ramifications; the obligations of a creator to his creation; the dichotomy between revenge and justice; etc. Given ho...

This is the most Millennial comic ever. The plot is basically, "Aliens have invaded, but my student loan is still due on Tuesday."

So not much different from life in modern America.

“Every mystery novel I ever read, the great detective was such an arrogant fuck you could replace 70% of his dialogue with 'Are you stupid?' and the conversation would still make sense.”

Hitomi Kanehara
“God has to be a sadist to give people life.”
Hitomi Kanehara, Snakes and Earrings
