Awkward turtle comix
The zine features experimental comics stories of varrying style, written and drawn by Finley or the occasional guest artist. Thus far, two issues have been published on a roughly annual basis, with plans for a third underway. The circulation of the book is very small (typically about 2-10 copies per issue) and is self distributed by Finley from his deviantArt website at [] and at local comic shops in St. Louis, MO.
Selected shorts from the series have been adapted into an online format through the webcomic //awkward.turtle// which can be accessed through [].
