pocket swonk
"Swonk" was a weekly comic strip written by Greg Petix of the Weird Lovemakers & drawn by Chris Cilla of The Pork Torta. It ran for almost two years in the Arizona Daily Wildcat (the U. of A. college paper) despite the fact that neither of it's creators were students. "The Pocket Swonk" was the first of three collections of the strip that were compiled ("Howling Swonk" and "A Moon, A Girl... Swonk" are the others); taken as a whole, they represent the comic in it's entirety. Special mention should be made of Noah Lopez who allowed Swonk to have it's forum by bamboozling the U. of A.
