Letters to an Absent Father, now in rad mini-comic form

Letters to an Absent Father is a brilliant and oh-so-adorable set of comic strips about Pokemon. More specifically, the strips are all about Ash Ketchum and his ever-mysterious dad.

Since Ash's father figure (or lack thereof) is never mentioned in any official, significant capacity -- at least to my knowledge -- creator Maré Odomo was really able to go all out with his vision. As of just recently, he began selling a Letters to an Absent Father mini-comic. You ought to buy it.

The comic is a mere $3 plus $1 to cover shipping. Throw in an extra $2, and Odomo will include a personalized drawing, which can be about whatever you specify. Or, if you happen to be nearby Seattle, Washington, you can get a copy at Pilot Books and The Elliott Bay Book Co.

Basically, everyone should buy the comic so he'll make more of 'em.
