April 19, 2024: Comsie Notice
Posted by Ronyx


We have lost a legend . Comicality has died. I can't begin to express how heartbroken I am. When I began to write 18 years ago, I was unsure of my writing skills. I feared that no one would be interested in what I had to say. Then along came Comsie. I had been an avid fan, but I wasn't aware that he had been following my stories on Nifty.  We began to communicate, and he encouraged me to keep writing. He supported me when I created The Mustard Jar. I was honored when he featured me in the May 2021 issue of his Imagine Magazine. I will miss my dear friend. RIP Comsie.

February Feature

Finding Good Trouble

Parker Frazier attends Somerset High School, a suburban white school. Over the weekend, a fight breaks out during a basketball game against an inner-city black school. Tempers flared, and racial epithets were shouted. On Monday, protestors appeared outside the school. One young man caught Parker's attention. While driving home after school, he witnessed a police officer brutally arrest the young black man he saw that morning. Parker videotaped it with his phone and posted it on Facebook. He was not prepared for what happens next. This story deals with the sensitive issues of racism and racial injustice. Do not read if you are easily offended. (Any names or places mentioned in the story are fictional and are entirely coincidental.)
