Failing Sex Ed

Failing Sex Ed

It’s been awhile since I posted any comics inspired by IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY—the proposed animated series that Jack Enyart and I are working on. Rather than Bucky himself, today’s comic features Paley…Bucky’s best buddy. Paley’s the weird-kid-down-the-street (every neighborhood has one) who’s looking for trouble—and usually finds it!
