Back when I started Again With the Comics, I knew what I wanted to do, but it took awhile to come up with a good name for the blog. I kicked around a few ideas, but nothing felt right until I remembered a long-ago comic strip I had seen in a fanzine or small-press comic wherein the cartoonist bemoaned his obsession with comics, titled "Again With the Comics", which summed my whole deal up perfectly. I couldn't remember where I'd seen the strip, or who had done it, but the title was perfect, so I nicked it. (Once I did an internet search on the name and found no claim laid to it, of course.)
Well, recently I was going through my magazines, and fished out a copy of Destroy All Comics #1, a fanzine put out by Jeff LeVine back in 1994. LeVine was responsible for an alternative comic called No Hope which I enjoyed back in the day, and I must have been following him pretty closely, because I also picked up Destroy All Comics at some point. Flipping through it, I was surprised to find the long-lost "Again With the Comics" comic strip. Let me tell you, I still feel his pain. Help! Will somebody out there please shoot me?
