Sock and Boot do Stuff (Comic #682)

Sock and Boot Comic Transcript Boot, a well rounded work boot, and Sock, an orange and yellow sock are hanging out together. Boot: Hey sock Boot: I've missed you. Boot: Socks and boots often do stuff together. Boot: So... Boot: Wanna go to a movie? Sock bounces up in the air. Sock sits on top of Boot and they zoom off together.

Did you know that the only reason Boot is in my comic is because of Sock? Writing can be such an act of discovery. Sock came along because of a conversation on Twitter with Annalee Newitz. That was way back in Comic 15! And once there was a sock, I knew they needed something and […]

Boot Wants You to Survive (Comic #583)

Survive Comic transcript Boot: When I was younger, anger and sadness kept me alive. Love was too impossible and made feelings too intense anyway. When I got older that embarrassed me ... and now that I'm even older still I say “you smart young boot, you stayed alive. You worked to be responsible with your anger and you lived... There is no shame in your sadness and anger. No shame staying alive out of spite. You survived. You held on And got us here. And I am glad.

Some Survival Resources Checkpoint (a non-profit providing mental health resources for gamers) has a great looking list of resources and helplines around the globe. It’s better to reach out for help than suffer alone. I also love how Checkpoint’s mental health guides (handy for anyone, not just gamers) come with fun monster illustrations and the writing is […]
