James Kochalka Bids You To Indulge
& Overdose Yourself on American Elf

As I was standing at the UPS Store today shipping off a set of funnybooks to a far off land, a friendly gentleman who was in line ahead of me grinned and enthused "Hey, you're the Isotope guy, right! You turned me onto that American Elf book and you were right, I loved it!"

We talked for a few minutes about Kochalka's comics, his best graphic novels, and also his great silly albums. And as we talked I excitedly remembered something I'd read yesterday on Pop Candy about a complete and extremely glorious over-haul of Mister Kochalka's website... "Why am I not telling everyone about this?" I thought to myself. So that's exactly what I'm doing now.

Go point your browsers towards the man's site, my fellow Kochalkaholics, because the entire American Elf archives are now free and on-line for you to binge like a freshman at a frat party on! Over-indulge yourself in nearly a decade worth of great daily strips until you pass out in a pathetic rumpled mess on the floor! And go do it now!

You can worry about the consequences of your actions some other time...
