You think you can keep up with me, world? Well you can't. Because I'm too damn FANTASTIC.

From Ryan Armand, author of the beautiful watercolor comic Minus, comes the story of a man who decides one day to be GREAT. Involves ramen, romance, gang warfare. Highly recommended.

Since there have been no comments on this yet, I just wanted to say I've been reading this for the past two hours, and I think it's worth the investment for anyone. It's very good, at least IMO.

I love Ryan Armand! Minus is one of my favorite works, in any medium. GREAT is also great!

Hmm, read the whole thing- I don't know if I got it, not a big fan of the style, and if I never read the word 'ramen' again today it will be too soon (oops) but I did enjoy it).

That Minus,though, that is just gorgeous, thanks!

Hap_ I totally have to disagree with you. I just finished and I think I know what I'll have for dinner tonight: yes, that's right - some not-very-good ramen! but I will make it THE BEST I CAN!

That (Great) was intense, with plenty of WTF moments, but overall really well done and thought-provoking. Thanks for posting.

Yay, love that Minus got linked, here. Minus was dangerously close in style and quality to a female-protagonist series of Calvin & Hobbes Sundays.
