A sixteen page mini comic featuring stories of missed connections found on Craigslist from the cities of Detroit, Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

If you enjoy reading tales of people's real life missed connections, or think they are funny, sweet, or downright strange, I think you would enjoy this comic.

The comic measures about 7x5 and is in all black and white.

****I will also include a special surprise bonus gift with purchase!****

Reviews of previous volumes:

"If you have a twinge of voyeurism in you (c’mon admit it!) like I do, then you’ll want to check out the Stranger Two Stranger series. Hendricks has a gift for selecting some of the most interesting, odd, and thought-provoking ads"

"This isn’t autobiographical, more biographical I suppose, but like good autobio comics, the observations catalogued here provide commentary about daily life, which illuminates the universal human condition, ideally causing us to consider our own actions in introspective fashion. Stranger Two Stranger is well-drawn, and an old-school, made-it-at-Kinko’s, honest-to-goodness, hand-stapled, DIY mini-comic. It’s a fun first effort that succeeds. Grade A-."

"Sure, it’s a simple concept: illustrating the best/oddest Craigslist personal ads... Still, the guy has the judgement needed to pick out some of the best ads, which goes a long way in a book like this."

Artists Statement:

The concept of telling stories visually is something I have always had a passion for. Up until this point, the tool I used was a camera. Now I have added pen and paper to the toolbox.

This book is inspired by a great anthology of comics edited by Julia Wertz called “I Saw You…” The book compiles comics from many talented artists to illustrate tales of real-life missed connections from Craigslist and newspapers around the country.

I wanted to try drawing a comic book, but I was lacking a story line and a concept. I really enjoy autobiographical comics like those of Wertz, R. Crumb, Guy Delisle, Joe Sacco, Jeffrey Brown and Harvey Pekar. However, I am not sure my life would make a very interesting comic.

The idea of illustrating anonymous people’s attempts at getting the attention of others fascinated me. Some descriptions are very detailed about their encounters, while others lack specifics and could happen anywhere. Yet these notes are typed up and sent into the wide world of the internet in the hopes that they will hit their mark. The stories range from the sweet to the strange, yet I always find them interesting.
