Welcome to the host for the sprite comic Landslide! Landslide tells the story of life and all its drama as people change and grow older (and sometimes even grow apart). This dramedy (drama/comedy hybrid) was inspired by the Fleetwood Mac song of the same title. Updates will occur whenever I have the free time and interest. So without further ado, enjoy!

LAST UPDATE: 4/16/14
It's been almost two years since I last updated this comic strip. I do intend to pick it up again, but right now I am working three jobs while also finishing a Master's Degree, so for now, this comic will remain on hiatus. I have plenty more stories planned out. Right now, though, I ask that everyone please keep Emily "Emmy" Cliff in their thoughts and prayers as she wrestles with terminal brain and spine cancer. Naturally, these troublesome circumstances have me disputing with myself over whether to exclude her character from future arcs of Landslide. On one hand, this is a series about my past and all the friends I've made, and it wouldn't feel right to leave her out, especially considering how much she loved being a part of Bad Drama. On the other hand, I'm not sure that any kind of humorous purposes for which I use her character would be appropriate given her condition, especially considering how inappropriate my sense of humor is. That is a discussion for another time, though. For now, please keep Emmy, her family, and her friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
