A Megacynic? Me?

I wouldn't say I'm cynical, merely skeptical. Still, the webcomic Megacynics does capture how I look as a typical conversation I might have degenerates into nonsense. Click the drawing to see the whole strip!

I'm pleased to join my pals Bonnie Burton and a certain red-headed lady in the comic, too. One of the brains behind Megacynics is my old friend Steve Dengler, who runs the fantastic DracoGen website, where he backs geeky and techy ventures. Steve's one of the good guys, and I'm glad to be a cartoony part of this.
