Johnny Wander is slice-of-life comics about life after college, striking out on your own, living with your friends, moving to a new city – all the moments in between the adult stuff, as seen through a lens of whimsy. Johnny Wander Vol. 1: Don’t Burn the House Down came out in September 2010, followed up by Johnny Wander Vol. 2: Escape to New York in December 2011. It updates twice a week and can be read online at johnnywander.com.
