Earlier in life, my friends and family might've said that I was guilty of a fear of commitment. Not in the sense of being good to my word, but always having a plan of escape. A backup plan. When riding in a car, I was the kid who took mental note of the signs and highways. If I bought a snack and didn't want my little sister to eat it while I was out, I'd hide it in an odd place. In fact, my mom probably could still find a roll of Oreos hidden under the kitchen sink.
Here at GoComics, I've reacquired my habit. My secret treat has been the Comics Sherpa part of the site. What is that? Well, comics fans, it's the area where up-and-coming artists are honing their craft. New comics on a daily basis that you haven't heard about. Some of my favorites are Adult Children by Stephen Beals and Peanizles by Don Mathias. Quick, clever, clean art and most of all, funny. Comics Sherpa is a little more raw than the GoComics page, in that its content is directly posted by the creators.
