This strip is the culmination of a life's worth of dreams. I'm using the opportunity to entertain, enlighten, and be the trembly voice of the socially awkward everywhere." -Cory Thomas An edgy and nuanced strip-chronicling the demanding but reflective lives of six urban teens at Oliver Otis University. More Watch Your Head Cory Thomas's Watch Your Head is presented through the eyes of Cory, an academically brilliant but socially inept college student. His friends at Otis U. include Omar, a recluse who seems umbilically tied to his computer; Quincy, Omar's friend (and therefore Cory's friend by default); and Kevin, who, as both a Canadian and one of the few whites on a predominantly black campus, feels like a foreigner times two. Robin, the object of Cory's crush, and Jason, Cory's roommate and polar opposite, round out the cast. Through this diverse group, Thomas provides a raw critique on current social issues while perfectly relating the amusements, angst, and growth that come with the college experience. Watch Your Head currently appears in papers stretching from New York, Washington, D.C., and Boston to Chicago, Dallas, and St. Petersburg. This inaugural book offering collects more than 40 weeks of strips.
