While it's a few weeks after Father's Day, I wanted to acknowledge the fathers who are raising children on their own. One of the comics that tells a different story of parenting is The Single Dad Diaries, which highlights the day-to-day efforts of Derrick Thomas raising his son while balancing dating, an ex-wife, religion and life in the city.
- I may be biased because the lead character is named after my favorite NFL player.
- This is a comic that may take a deeper dive to appreciate, as the storyline is akin to a serial.
- The typeface is simple, making you focus on creator Ervin Johnson's art. (Yes, he also shares a name with one of my favorite NBA players.) He changes visual perspective with his angles quite often, giving you more insight into the space than the average comic.
