Record Heat by Brad Dwyer

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.
