Up on the Sun is proud to present the first installment of our new weekly comic strip, Record Heat, by Brad Dwyer.
We're pretty big fans of Dwyer around here, awarding his series Epic Tales of the Mundane a Best of Phoenix award last month. We love Dwyer's dry jokes and art, and judging from the strips he's sent in so far, we think his unique (and often wacky) tales from Phoenix's punk rock underbelly make for a great addition to the Up on the Sun experience.
Read on for the first strip, and check back each Monday or new comics.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
