Teppei Ando's "Locksmith Brothers"
My friend Teppei made a pretty awesome comic about the time he lived with the local con-artist and two locksmith brothers. Everything in this comic is pretty real. We actually used to live in the same neighborhood, so we saw the con-artist who rammed a local news van when they were investigating him selling cars to people without telling them that he got the cars at the salvage yard. Uh, we didn't get to see him ram the news van but we did see him park his piece of shit cars throughout the entire neighborhood, and one time he stole Marci's parking spot when she was backing and she cussed him out.
But yeah. This comic strangely isn't about that guy but these other two guys that he lived with who were locksmiths.
This comic is 8.5" x5.5" and is 38 pages, with a color copy cover. And is $3, which barely covers the cost of the zine. Actually I don't really know if he's making any money cause Etsy charges 20c per listing, and they take a small percentage, and then Paypal also takes out a small percentage. So he might be just breaking even.
So yeah. You should buy his comic and you can get it here.
Or you can listen to the visual/audio version on his Youtube Page where he also does all the voices.
