The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
Artist and writer E.K. Weaver has been telling the story of TJ and Amal for the past several years. After creating a handful of web-based comic strips featuring the characters, Weaver began to form larger story for the pair, eventually creating a multi-volume story arc that features a cross-country road trip. It’s part comedy, part character study, and part love story, and now it’s not just a web comic, but (as E.K. says) a “real book.”
Part one of The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal is titled “Poor Boys and Pilgrims,” and it covers the beginning of their story; a middle and an end will come along in the next couple of years. It’s a comic book, but with some mature themes, so it’s geared more toward adult readers than kids.
