ITUNES: Knocked Out Loaded
Norm Miller, stressed about marriage and all that that implies, heads off for a solo skiing trip only to return without any of his emotional baggage. When you see yourself as others see you, who’s left to be you? Based on Michael Jantze’s syndicated comic strip “The Norm”, “Knocked Out Loaded” is the first graphic novel from Jantze and the first-long form story about Theo. Norm Miller.
A 230-page book, “Knocked Out Loaded” is 151 pages of character-driven, thought-provoking yucks and drama. And as an ebook bonus, more than 50 guest artists offer their version of “The Norm”, including Sergio Aragones, Joe Murray, Tom Richmond, Jim Borgman, Jerry Scott, Lincoln Peirce, Stephen Silver and so many up and coming artists it’s exhausting, but still the norm.
“The Norm” comic is published every Monday on GoComics. This week, after the big snow, there’s always time for a bit of fun … and medication.
With aging, it takes longer to do even the simplest things. Norm is learning to slow down, but he’s in danger of going too far in this strip.
