UPDATE: I'm closing out my year of cartooning for McSweeney's. 17 columns, 40 pages of comics. On top of dailies. And full-time work. I'm exhausted.
This is everything I've learned about why I'm an old maid, in real time.
Mostly because it's hard to lie to yourself in comics.
Thank you for reading along. I gave it my all. I needed to do it. It was not without costs.
That said - I've been invited to continue the column. Should I keep writing "old maid"?
OLD MAID, DATING FAIL is the final installment of the contest year. Page 1 of 4. You can read the whole thing here.
