    Hags and Mopes have been married for as long as they can remember and they've had just about enough of each other so maybe it's not such a bad thing there's a comet making its way straight towards them, the blizzard of the century isn't letting up, or that the cow and the goat have moved to Florida because the end is near and they can barely remember the beginning.

    Hags, Mopes, and the End of All Existence is an absurd tale exploring age, love, and the race against time nobody can elude, not even chickens.

  • Little Sacrifices

  • I Will Do the Best I Can
    It's just another day for The International Environmental Council for Keeping Things the Same so of course they're up to their usual no good interrogation antics until prisoner 2050D aka Greta Thurnberg walks in on counts of anti-
    democratic behavior, sowing panic, out of balance
    priorities, and for being a witch and puts wrench in the works.
