Welcome to ALL CAPS – a comic that takes an irreverent, absurdist approach to political and cultural satire.  New comics are currently being posted on the demanding schedule of “whenever the fuck I have time.”  I also post reviews of other comics I enjoy on a semi-regular basis.  For news updates and information about other projects, check the news section on the first page of this site.  Also, for links to other artists and comics that I enjoy, check out the links to the right.  If you have any questions, thoughts, criticism, or suggestions, feel free to post comments anywhere on the site.  Enjoy!

WTF is the author?

Well, my wife tells me that I would be perfectly charming if I didn’t cuss so much.  I like to think that I use the entirety of the English language to add flavor and variety to my communication.  I also think that disgusting shit is generally pretty fucking funny, and if you don’t have a sense of humor about some of the horrible stuff going on in the world, what else are you going to do?  Mope?  Be depressed?  Make a difference?  Well, hopefully the latter, but we can only do so much, right?  Laughing is how I try to deal with the shit that lies outside of my range of influence.

My name is Mark Barnes.  During the daylight hours (and often late into the night) I’m an English Teacher at a local community college.  I love what I do and feel very lucky to have found a vocation that both makes me happy and makes a difference in a lot of peoples’ lives.

I’ve been into comics since I was very young.  It was actually my mom who originally inspired me to collect comics, although she’s probably kicking herself for that now.  Who knew that those Looney Toons and Yogi Bear comics would one day lead me to make pervy pixel art comix about poop and drugs and blowjobs (oh, and philosophy and politics – I like to pretend that I’m saying something important sometimes)?  Sorry, mom.
