Losers Weepers #3

Losers Weepers #3
7″ x 7 1/4″, 36 pages, $5.00
The third installment of a fictional comic that is losely based around random letters, notes, flyers, etc. found by the aritst/writer, J.T. Yost. In the beginning of this issue, an illegal immigrant called Alvaro is making some copies of a flyer in a copy shop. The flyer is an adverstisement for Spanish lessons, of which Alvaro is the teacher. The flyer (one of J. T.'s finds) is written by someone who has terrible English, and so, of course, the employees of the copy shop have a good laugh over it. Later, Alvaro learns some bad news about his mother. Then he learns more bad news concerning his girlfriend. It's as if things couldn't get any worse, when ultimately Alvaro finds himself in the backseat of a cop car. This comic is entertaining and very well crafted, which is no surprise, really - I have yet to read a J.T Yost creation that I did not enjoy.
