I'm Like You
Here's an early four page comic by Dylan, from Destroy All Comics v.2 #1, originally published in 1994. Click here to read it.
I seem to recall Dylan saying he intended this strip as a parody of certain small press, navel-gazing, autobiographical comics that seemed to be getting a fair amount of attention at the time. Perhaps unfortunately, it reads a bit like just another one of those comics! Anyhow, I still like the rough, rushed appearing, cartoony art. It seems a little more like something out of the east-bay punk scene than some of his other comics. I'm also pretty sure it's set in a certain cafe just down the street from where Comic Relief Berkeley used to be on University, and where certain people used to meet before going to movies at the amazing UC Theater (which no longer exists).
