Milestones of Life

My youngest brother got married on Saturday.

Wild, huh?

Some of you who who have been following my work for a while may remember my youngest brother. He showed up in a few pages of Comedity, often being referred to as tacky jailbait. Cuz he was like 16 when I drew Comedity. I didn’t give him that nickname, others did. I always called him “shorty” even though I’m the shortest of the siblings. It’s hard to not think of your kid brother as anything but a kid even long after he’s been an adult. But then he goes and does something like get married.

In the comic he was adventurous and daring and unflappable and that has all remained true to this day. Fewer skateboarding off the roof incidents and more seemingly effortless culinary masterpieces, but still. And the wild thing is that he’s gone and found himself a gal who is as perfectly quirky and bold as he is. They’ve been together for years now, so in some ways getting married seems like an unnecessary legal bow for an unwrapped gift, but it was a lovely celebration of the two of them and the life they’ve been building together.

What could be more adult than being there for someone you care about, to uplift and support them, to help them grow into the best version of themselves, and to be likewise loved in return?

I’m proud of the kid. He and his wife done good. And I know they will continue to do so for years to come.

Congrats, Cole and Taylor.

About Garth

Born in Known Space, raised by the likes of Lazarus Long, Dr. Susan Calvin, and Lt. Miles Vorkosigan, Garth Graham has only ever partially shared the same reality as most of us. Fascinated by what might be and what isn't, rather than weighed down by the drama of what is, he has forged a tenuous bridge made of ink and paper between our world and some strange unknowable scape where improbable dreams are born. Perhaps it has driven him a little mad. Yet such madness has born fine delectable fruit for our eye organs. His previous works include the webcomics Comedity and Finder's Keepers. In his spare time Garth likes to laugh maniacally about the abstract and fictional concept of “spare time” and does his level best to refute entropy.
