My good friend and racquetball partner/enemy Benjamin Wilkins has recently published two of what I consider to be the coolest essays ever–graphic essays. Some folks are aware that I’m not much for comics (see this post), but graphic nonfiction kind of has me hooked lately (next up Maus I and II, which I’ve been meaning to read for ages and recently bought at a great used bookstore in Durham, North Carolina). Anyway, back to Ben’s kickass writing/art/mind. If you’re up for a unique piece of literature that’s very funny and very well done, I suggest you check out his work: “God of Ants” was published in the journal Phoebe this past Spring, and another essay, called “On Miracles,” is available on Amazon. Enjoy!
